Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this villa and everything that is mentioned and seen in the pictures and information is true! The views and sunsets are breathtaking.

It was the best of both worlds for a family with kids. Our kids can be running on the beach while we are relaxing. Sitting in the gazebo watching the waves, running down the beach with the kids, or quietly reading a book in the living room surrounded by windows with lake views.

There are many activities around the Union Pier area as well as local wineries, dunes, skiing, etc. The outdoor kitchen makes it easy to cook for the family. The hot tub provides a break from the busy day and beckons a glass of wine and view of the stars.

I would recommend this villa for couples or families, it will suit anyone whether it is the large extended families or couple seeking a quiet retreat!

We will definitely return!

Lovely Thanksgiving on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (plus the dog) stayed at Casa De Lago over Thanksgiving. The house was wonderful. Plenty of space for all of us. And the location was fabulous. Even though it was chilly we sat on the deck to admire the view. Christopher was super to work with. Super responsive and helpful.

He even recommended a local place to get a fresh turkey! Highly recommend.

Birthday weekend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Casa de Lago for my wife's birthday weekend with seven other friends. The view and beach were wonderful and the house was well equipped for our group. There is a spacious deck with a built-in grill and a gazebo with an extra pull out sofa. The biking opportunities were good and there are many good restaurants and cafes nearby. The sunsets were gorgeous! We will definitely plan another stay if this house is available.

Casa de Lago - Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Casa de Lago was perfect for us! Two families with 5 kids total. More than enough room. Kids loved the basement as play area, set up the Wii down there. Bunk beds worked great too. Spent some good times in the hot tub too. Private beach was perfect, right next to public access but no issues at all once private sign was put up. Perfect weather. A lot of sand toys with the home, plenty of towels too. Chris, our concierge, was very attentive and helped us with anything we needed. We hope to come back next year!!

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect time at this lovely home for a week in July. The beach is gorgeous! The lake views from the deck, and the sunsets every night, are breathtaking. We had two families, for a total of 4 adults and 3 kids. The house was exactly the right size (you could fit another couple in the third "adult-size" bedroom, or put a kid or two in there, but personally I wouldn't do more than that). The house is very well-equipped with everything you need, and it exudes charm with its curved doors from the 1920s. The kitchen and baths are fully updated and attractive as well as quite functional. The hot tub is very clean (they came while we were there to check chlorine etc) and was fun at the end of the day. Owner has kindly allowed use of beach umbrellas and rafts, etc. Only suggestion I have is to bring beach towels. Otherwise, this vacation was probably the most perfect we have ever taken. Thanks to Chris, our outstanding concierge, for attending to every little detail! Among other things, he arranged for paddle board delivery, which I highly recommend (we had ages 5 to 54 in our group, and every single one of us used the paddleboards). Exceptional service and a magnificent location on a private beach make this rental well worth the cost, especially if shared between two families.

Great weekend getaway again!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we stayed and again had a wonderful experience. The whole process is very easy and the owners are very responsive. The house is beautiful and perfect for groups or an extended family.
