2/5 Poor

MI City Retreat
Outside the property was not clean, the patio was very dirty, table included nasty ashtray with cigarette butts in it, gutters cluttered, grounds unkept. The thermostat would not stay at a steady temperature. Many spiders and insects were in the house, downstairs shower had black substance coming out. TV did not work.

5/5 Excellent

We will be back very soon.

5/5 Excellent

Amazing place to stay!
This house was EXACTLY what we needed for our vacation. It was the perfect size for our extended family (3 floors for three families). It is so close to an awesome beach as well. The owner was super quick and helpful when we needed some assistance with the Wi-Fi. We would love to make this trip to this house an annual thing!

2/5 Poor

Disappointment with the “Yellow House”
We were very disappointed with the conditions & cleanliness of the “yellow house”. No kitchen dish cloths, oven was filthy, one roll of toilet paper in each bathroom, burnt out light bulbs, no soap for bathing, no mattress pad on one bed, cobwebs & insect debris, poor mirror access in bathrooms & french door frames were grimy. We were charged XXX for cleaning fee, obviously it wasn’t cleaned prior to our arrival. This home needs attention.

3/5 Okay

Great Location
The location was great. Parking was not a problem. Overall it's like they tried and it is almost there. The queen bed upstairs was so hard we couldn't sleep on it. We ended up on the daybed and trundle in the loft. There was a contact lens stuck to the side of the nightstand in there, toothpaste on the cabinets, and dust bunnies upstairs, one pillow was missing a case. I wasn't overly pleased for the hefty cleaning fee. The furnishings and decor were almost there, but lots of stuff felt thrown together or cheap, like the rugs throughout and kitchen utensils, and all of the mattresses upstairs. Many lights weren't working, and the outdoor shower was broken. None of this seemed urgent enough to ask the owner to take action while we were there, but would certainly improve the experience of the next renters. Overall the location is the real advantage. Easy walk to a beautiful beach. The deck is nice, and the house is adorable.
