Clean, spacious, steps from beach!! KID FRIENDLY

  • 5 of 5

Very pleased with our stay. House was SUPER clean and roomy. Perfect for 2 families: bathroom, living room & bedroom on main floor and bathroom, living room and multiple bed, bedroom upstairs. Fully stocked, just need to bring clothes/ personal items and food. I was blown away by the little, kid friendly details: highchair, pack n play, outlets were covered, baby gates, stool for toddlers to use in the bathroom, toys, outdoor beach toys in the garage. The location of this home is awesome, close to port austin and caseville and literally steps from a private section of beach. I could keep going on and on. Owner very easy to get ahold of to answer questions and neighbors very friendly. Will definitely rebook again!

Lots of room for all of us. Grandkids loved having out at the beach even if it was a bit cool.

Excellent! Would stay again! 😊

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best places in Port Austin that I have stayed at over the last 6 years of visiting the area! We loved it so much that we are hoping to stay here again next year. Our family had plenty of space between the two levels, the house was super clean and the kitchen had everything we needed (pots pans, dishes etc). New washer and dryer on the main floor was great. Everything was provided (we showed up with food and clothes and we were all set). I loved the upstairs- nice new living room area with comfy couches and even though there isn't air conditioning (it was an extra $100 if you wanted a window unit for the week) we just opened the doors on both sides of the house and the breeze blew thru the entire area and keep it nice and cool! There are a couple of houses between this rental house and the lake (you can see a bit of the lake from the upstairs balcony) but the beach there is awesome!! It take about 30 seconds to walk down the road on the property to the water and it was super sandy and clean. I walked down the beach toward Port Austin and actually found some petosky stones!! Oak beach is about a 8 min walk down the shore and McGraw is 3 min drive away (both have excellent swimming areas). The house had loads of amenities like two fire pits, a sand volleyball court, ping pong table in the garage and bunch of beach/lounge chairs and sand toys for use. We didn't use the grill but it was nice too. The owners are very quick to respond and very friendly when I asked questions. Again excellent place, highly recommended and we hope to rent this wonderful home again!! Thanks!!

Great place, well stocked with items needed to have an enjoyable vacation.

  • 4 of 5

Overall the time was very enjoyable. The house was clean, kitchen was stocked well and the beach was nice. I overlooked the lack of A/C which caused a problem with some of the family members with outside allergies when leaving the windows and French doors for open for circulation.
