About Michael Kochanny

Both Mary and I grew up in and continue to live in the city of Chicago and while we thrive on all the city has to offer we began coming to southwest Michigan during the summers of college and continued as we began our careers. The peace and solitude that we find just a short distance from the hustle of the city re-ivigorates us with every visit. For me there is nothing better than long walks along the incredible beaches (something that I do year round) finished off with a glass of wine, good friends and a fabulous dinner somewhere along the Red Arrow Highway. Michael & Mary Kochanny, Chicago, IL

Michael Kochanny purchased this condo in 2005

Why Michael Kochanny chose Southwest Michigan

We were given a unique opportunity to get in on the ground floor of this very interesting development shortly after the drawings were completed. What began as raw space was transformed in six months to a modern interpretation of a Tuscan villa. We most enjoy the central location within Harbor Country, close to everything, but just a little off the beaten path.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Another great time! Although we have never met, it always feels like we are staying a a friends home! Hope to be back in February for Mom's B-day. Have a great holiday season.

P.S. Never had the little ones with us before, the open floor plan and long hallways gave us plenty of room.

Cozy Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property which made for a fun three day retreat with family. It is close to several very good restaurants with Mesa Luna being our favorite. A cute Scandinavian Bakery just across the street that serves breakfast as well as loads of donuts, pastries, pies, etc. Many antique shops along the main road. Nice getaway. Michael and Mary are pleasant and quick to respond to questions. We enjoyed our stay! Thank you!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

My in-laws, husband, son, and I decided to take a last minute trip to MI. I checked out several hotels and then came across the Loft. We'd never stayed at a VRBO property before so I was a little nervous but the price was the same, if not a little less expensive, as two hotel rooms so we thought we'd give it a shot. I'm so glad we did! The Loft was gorgeous, extremely clean and very spacious. We were able to explore the shoreline during the day but then go "home" at night. We were really tired one night so we stayed in, fixed sandwiches, and watched a DVD. The only downside is that we only planned on staying two nights. We would definitely recommend and will look at staying here again on our next adventure to MI.

Pictures don't do it justice!

Perfect place for girls' weekend! The loft is spacious with beautiful settings both inside and out. Everything we needed was provided. Feels secluded, but great shopping, beach and wineries nearby. Would love to go back!

Adorable, up to date and extremely clean!

  • 5 of 5

The other reviews were no joke. This property is much bigger than the pictures look. And much nicer. The living area has so much room! It easily accommodated the seven of us for playing games, talking and hanging out. The kitchen was perfect as we had some meals at the property. All cooking amenities that we needed were there.

This property is about a half mile walk to the beach, where we went to watch the sunrise and the sunset.

Two spacious, modern and very clean bathrooms. No complaints here.

There are two outside patios, one is a veranda in the front of the property where we sat and had coffee in the morning and wine at night. The other was off the back and had a picnic table.

This place definitely exceeded our expectations! Very happy to recommend property to anyone looking to stay in this area.
