Loved it! Exceeded all our expectations!

  • 5 of 5
This was my first experience renting a vacation rental by owner and it was a breeze. Brenda was easy to work with and quick to respond.
The house was perfect. It is exactly what I would want if I were to have my own vacation home. For reference I have two daughters, one that just turned five and a 2 1/2 year-old and this house will work for many years to come. You don't see pictures of the guest bathroom, but there is a huge garden tub. My girls liked sharing a room but with their own beds, since it was a different house, and they loved having a TV in their room (they don't have that at home). My husband and I appreciated the Masters King bed. All the linens are provided, house was squeaky clean. The kitchen had nice appliances and any utensils you could need.
As far as the community goes, it was a mile away from downtown and the beach (the Silver Beach parking pass was so convenient). The neighbors were very friendly and we even hung out with a few of them. The back door opens to a wonderful green space and playground. It was perfect to just let my girls play while I enjoyed a cup of coffee on the covered patio. The community pool was a quick walk and there was hardly anyone there.
As far as the city, St. Joe's was the perfect destination for our family with young kids. We did Silver beach (playground on the beach too), the carousel, the Discovery Museum, the splash park, the shops downtown, the farmers market on Sat., the lighthouse and even checked out a few local beaches. On Friday night, there was even a free jazz concert at the Shell.
Silver Beach pizza was delicious and if you eat there, they give the kids dough to play with. Downtown was just adorable-several miniature lighthouses all painted differently, neat shops and a mix of restaurants.
We can't wait to go back and already reserved our week for next Summer!

Perfect stay in a lovely house!

  • 5 of 5
We wanted a house that was close to the beach but had something different to offer if we fancied a quite day lazing by the pool.

This house was absolutely perfect in every way. It was beautifully kept in a stunning, safe and picturesque location. The grass area and play park just off the rear deck proved very popular with our two girls and their new friends from across the way and the pool was great for a morning or afternoon relax.

The development was very quiet and immaculate. The house itself was lovely with every possible item available and thought about - it felt like a home and it was just what we needed after a busy first week.

St Joseph is only a 3 minute drive away and has a great deal to offer including some nice restaurants, shops and of course the beach. The sunsets are amazing.

Brenda and Chuck were very helpful in arranging our stay and made the whole experience a special one.

It really was everything we could have asked for and more.

This was our second trip to St. Joseph and we have fallen in love with the place. (Last year we only spent a weekend at a hotel. This year, we spent an entire week at Island Pointe) We are a family of four: 2 adults and 2 kids: an 18 year-old and an 11 year-old. Next year we plan to spend another week with the Klomfars.

We had an incredible vacation!

Brenda has put together an amazing "home away from home". This is by far the most detailed rental unit we have ever occupied; from the beautiful dishes to the sound machine in the bedroom, she has covered every base. The unit is spotless, and everything works exactly the way you would like it to. It's decorated beautifully, and the furniture and bedding are very cozy.

The pool is clean, clear and never over crowded. The foosball table in the garage was a lot of fun for us. (Our 11 year-old insisted we have a "tournament"--which he of course won), and the deck out back was great for playing card games, enjoying the breeze, and watching the playground.

We missed having a kitchen table to eat our home cooked meals at, but we made do. This was by no means a "deal breaker" for us.

Our activities for the week included Warren Dunes Park, "Chalk on the Block" downtown (SOoo cool), Michigan Adventure amusement park, the National Blueberry Festival in South Haven, plenty of pool time & shopping/eating downtown, and we even rented a boat from Pier 1000 for one afternoon.

Next year we'll repeat some of our activities and branch out to try more. I don't believe it's possible to find higher quality or convenience in the area for the price you pay with this amazing house.

Thank you SO much for offering such a lovely place to stay for the week! We can't wait to come back. :)

Beautiful, Clean Home in a nice Community

  • 5 of 5
This house is great it has everything you could ever need and want out of a vacation rental. The owner's have maintained this property very well. I was there with my children and parents for two weeks. The playground is right outside the back door and the kids had a ball playing there everyday! The pool is very nice and you get beautiful views of the river right behind you. Downtown St. Joe is not far you could bike or walk there, but if you have small children you may want to drive to the beach if you're lugging all your beach equipment. The owner's even have a free all day parking for the beach too! We had a great time and we will be back next year!

Beautiful rental home near the lake!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I were so impressed with this rental property. It is located in a small, beautiful marina community. The house is very clean and organized, equipped with all of the necessities for an extended stay. We were thrilled to be greeted with a nice bottle of wine sitting on the counter. Working with the home's owners has been a pleasure. The house is approximately 1 mile from town and the beach. Because the owners supply a parking pass, going into town was very convenient. We love St. Joseph! Not only is the lake beautiful, there is always something going on in the town. During our week's stay, there was an art fair, car show, live music and an 8k run.
