Very spacious - the pictures of the inside were right on - the kitchen was well supplied with cookware - very close to the county park on Lake Michigan and it was never crowded!The keyless entry was nice

Home was perfect for what we needed and close to the dunes. Very well stocked with everything you need. We brought our own firewood for the fire pit, but there was a guy selling bundles just walking distance down the road. Parking was a bit tight, we could fit 2 trucks and one trailer but we had to borrow my daughters driveway at her rental for our other trailer. We were able to put our jeep in the garage. That was nice, in case it rained.I think it's a bit confusing figuring out who to contact with issues. Evolve,VRBO or the owner. Overall, great place for a family vacation though.

We stayed at the Mermaid house and had a wonderful time! There were 9 of us and everyone had their own space and bed! The location is perfect- woodsy with beach in walking distance! The house was well stocked with all that you would need-towels,sheets, etc. There was even hand soap and dish soap to get you started in case you forgot to bring some.
There is no Wifi. And we did not have much cell service either. That’s just something people should take note of. For me, I LOVED it because my kids played board games and played outside and were forced to not have any screen time. Also, we never figured out the TV. Again, I loved it, the rest of the family, not so much.
The basement can be used as a totally separate space for a two family trip. It has its own kitchen space and eating area as well as living space and bedrooms.
The house is decorated very tastefully as well!
The neighbors were delightful and very kind to us!
I truly enjoyed our time and we look forward to coming back in the future!
Thank you so much!!!
We liked that the 9 of us could all have a bed. Plenty of room for all of us. HOwever, this house needs some attention. The deck was unusable , it had so many leaves and sticks on it. The gas grill was absolutely filthy! You could not open the french doors in the basement because of the pile of leaves up against it. There was no one to contact about it's condition. The kitchen is very lacking. There was no dish soap to wash dishes with. The cutting board was broken in half. There were no skillets, except for a large cast iron skillet and a little one. So unorganized, you had to hunt all over to find things , if they had them.
We did enjoy the location of the house. Close to several places to go. Air conditioner worked very well. Some of the beds need new mattresses. Downstairs is perfect for kids to sleep and hang out. Someone needs to inventory the kitchen. Add some big bowls and a set of pot and pans and new mattresses.
Hi Debra, we're glad you enjoyed certain aspects of this home, but sorry your stay fell short in other areas. The homeowner has asked us to share the following:
- I apologize that the deck was not properly cleaned before your visit. The leaves have been cleared, and I reminded my cleaner that the grill needs to be checked and cleaned after every stay.
- There should be dish soap under the sink, but I am sorry if you did not find it.
- There are three different-sized skillets in a cabinet under the kitchen island. There are also plenty of pots, pans, dishes, and big bowls.
- The mattresses are still somewhat new and in good condition. Your note said the beds were nice, so I would love to know which ones you thought should be replaced.
Thank you for your feedback; I will continue to work hard to provide a fantastic stay for all guests!
