An executive vacation home tucked magically on what is the greatest location on one of the world’s finest beaches, this one of a kind Grand Bend estate has the perfect blend of privacy and access to the energy to the beach and town. Completely updated by the current owner, every modern convenience is enjoyed with historic treasures, including two Scottish castle fireplaces, a billiard table commissioned by King Edward VII, stained and etched glass panels in the windows and doors. This 5 bedroom beachfront is in a league of its own. Your family and friends will enjoy a spectacular lawn for yard games and a magnificent tiki bar, the center for outdoor fun, along with an adjacent custom fire pit and large entertaining deck. Literally off the dune to the beach. Words fail to describe the magnificence of the sunsets, and the advantage of this location.

The pictures do not do the home justice.
We had an amazing weekend at this beautifully appointed, clean home. It surpassed our expectations and it would be wonderful to be able to rent it again sometime.
Our family of 9 -- ages 1 to 67 -- stayed here in August and had a lovely first visit to Grand Bend. Plenty of comfy bedrooms and clean bathrooms with a well-equipped kitchen. We spent happy time gathered around the long dining table, enjoying good food off the grill and playing games in the evening. The owner made us feel very welcome, responding quickly to our few questions. We enjoyed easy access to the beach and long walks through the neighboring areas. We would love to return -- but maybe not during the busy Civic Holiday weekend next time.
I am so happy that you had a fantastic time - thank you for being such amazing guests - would love to welcome you back anytime!
A wonderful time with Family & Friends
Everyone loved the home, it's all and more than you can ask for.
The only criticism we had was that the views to the beach and marina are blocked by the weeds around the perimeter of the yard.
Overall, everything was wonderful.
PS: If you are over 5'8" the "drop" in the master bedroom sink area you will end up banging your head on it.
The sunsets are spectacular as always
Thank you so much for your review and I am so happy that you and your family had a great week. Keeping "mother nature" in check on the dunes is a never ending battle, and while she gets a severe "haircut" several times a year - she is relentless.
Well noted on the bathroom ensuite, I have never hit my head on it personally, but I can see how that could happen - I will look into a solution.
Thank you again, you were great guests!
Great Time at the 'Bend
We really enjoyed our 10 day stay at this home in early July 2017. The Tiki bar was the best spot to hang out and watch the day go by.
Amazing New Year's weekend at Grand Bend
Dan's cottage had everything we wanted for our new years weekend. Plenty of bedrooms for my 10 friends and myself. There is plenty of space for activities within the cottage between the billiard room, living space and dining areas. The steam sauna was a perfect way to warm up on a cold day. Dan was readily available by phone or email if we had any questions. The cottage is within walking distance to nearby restaurants as well as the beach. I would definitely recommend this cottage for large groups in summer or winter time. Thanks Dan!
Great location for family holiday
We rented Dan's place for CDN Thanksgiving and hosted 8 members of our family - from seniors to young adults. The place was great. Well equipped and a very good layout that afforded lots of separate spaces for every one to do their thing individually or in groups. Its a great location on the beach and very convenient to stores in Grand Bend. The Sauna and Pool table were especially nice to have.
My one misgiving in giving 5 stars is that the sink garbage disposal became plugged without any misuse and not that much use.. we couldn't dislodge the plug so cleaning up after Thanksgiving dinner was complicated. Still, a great place and and easy to deal with host who was responsive.
I am very happy you enjoyed my beautiful Grand Bend home despite the fact that their was a problem with the garbage disposal. I have since had the disposal replaced and I am truly flummoxed as to why their was an issue - I suppose sometimes these things just happen. I wish I could have fixed it immediately for you but there should not be a problem in the future. I wish you a wonderful year ahead!
Walking distance to downtown Grand Bend
