Great Location and Price Point
Great Location & price point!! Launch kayaks right from the room to paddle the Crystal River or Lake Michigan. Unit could use some attention, bathroom fan crusted with dust, shower grout moldy. Metal mesh patio style set used for kitchen table, not comfortable, outdoor patio (2 chairs & small table) cheap plastic molded set, again not comfortable. Missing slats & broken blinds, compromised privacy, especially on first floor. --hung blanket that was in room to cover sliding door.
True to advertisement.
Thanks for letting us know you enjoyed your stay at The Cabana. Let us know if we can help you with any vacation plans in the future.
The room was perfect, exactly as advertised, and the view out back was gorgeous. The team at VRBO was also excellent; I was in for an extended stay, and they checked in on me regularly, bringing me clean sheets and towels, and making sure the basic amenities were covered. The town of Glen Arbor is beautiful, as are the surrounding towns and dunes.
The one issue I had was not with the place or the company - it was the gnats. I didn't realize it, but in May they are almost unbearable, and this year was - according to the locals - the worst it's ever been. You really couldn't be outside or else you'd be covered, which made enjoying the beach all but impossible. That is the only reason I give this place 4 stars instead of 5 - if you aren't there in May, it's 5 stars all the way.
Other than that, I would highly recommend this place.
Glad you enjoyed your stay at The Cabana. You were even fortunate to have some summer like weather in May! Hope the scenery of Crystal River and all the great things in the area didn't distract you from writing your book! Keep us posted on when it's published.

Ok but could be better
As advertised but could be better. Appreciated the gift from Cherry Republic! Nice touch and was appreciated! Need to supply enough toilet paper for the length of stay. A bit annoying that we had to go out and purchase additional. Also only one garbage bag? Really? Disappointed that the Homestead did not have a restaurant that was open to nonmembers. Shame that we had to go off property for meals. Also disappointed that the Homestead didn't have grills or even allowed grilling on the property. As a resort facility I find this odd. Especially when no restaurants were available. Not sure I would rent again but if I did I would only rent if the rental included member privileges.
Thanks for taking the time to share your experience at the Cabana at the Homestead. Glad you enjoyed the gift box with treats from Cherry Republic. We provide linens and towels and enough toilet paper and paper towels and garbage bags to get you started . We would have been glad to provide you more if you felt that was an issue. As you mentioned the Homestead does have it's rules regarding grilling and that is an association rule that we have to have our guests abide by. Hope you enjoyed the Glen Arbor and will come back to the area in the future.
