Michigan beach time

liketostaynice stayed 7 nights on 8/1/2014

Great place! Close to the beach and nicely decorated and appointed. Open space for family to gather and great master bath.


We had a great time!

Knarr family stayed 7 nights on 8/2/2013

The house is lovely and decorated nicely. We were happy to have the wagon to take to the beach so we could walk with all our stuff. A warm shower outside made cleaning off the sand easy and the whirlpool in the bathroom was a terrific way to end the day. The only thing we would like to have is beach chairs.


Gorgeous House - Excellent Location - Horrid Noise

Pleased yet Disappointed stayed 7 nights on 7/5/2013

The rental process - flawless. The Staff at Rsvp rentals - friendly and accomodating The house - gorgeous, clean, comfortable for (2) couples/ (3) children. The location - perfect. The noise level - horrid. Everything about this rental was perfect until...nightfall. Upon arrival we were wondering why there was sound-proof glass installed. We came to find at approx. 2 a.m. and again around 5:30 a.m. it was due to the train whistles which woke everyone up every single night. Not once were we able to sleep with the windows open and enjoy the fresh air. In addition, the home across the way was under construction so the day was filled with cement trucks, dump trucks, the works. Once again we were stuck in air-conditioning vs. bonding with nature. If you have young children, the outside environment was hurrendous for this reason alone. This was the only drawback. If not for the noise complaints, we would likely be back next year and would refer this home to anyone. If noise is not of concern, then you will be very pleased.


Manager Response

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to post your thoughts. We are very pleased that you liked the home and location so much. We are sorry for the inconvenience of a nearby construction project. It looks like a home in the neighborhood put in a pool and the excavation happened to fall during your stay which is, unfortunately, out of our control. The train is fairly far away on the other side of Red Arrow Highway so its surprising you heard it's distant whistle, which some enjoy. We hope you consider staying again when the pool is completed and the neighborhood returns to it's typical peace and quiet. Thanks! RSVP Rentals, Inc Management

We enjoyed a lovely week at The Kottage.

Erica stayed 7 nights on 8/17/2012

The Kottage has all the ingredients for a perfect vacation. The bedrooms are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, the linens are plentiful and the common room is spacious and perfectly set up for socializing. We loved sitting on the swing on the porch. Everything is clearly marked and instructions easy to find. We especially enjoyed using the outdoor grill and the fire pit - big hit with my teenagers for making s'mores! Great to have the beach so close, as well as Lakeshore Road for biking. And our new favorite Harbor Country spot is the Swedish Bakery, which is a just-right walk from the house to work off a few calories from the pastries! My only critique is that the house does not have beach chairs, which are a nuisance to pack in the car. Otherwise, a perfect spot and well-equipped house.



Lloyd Perlow stayed 2 nights on 12/27/2011

Nice cottage w/all the amenities. Really loved where Situated and going down to beach. Kids, 9 & 6, really enjoyed also. They loved having their own nice rooms upstairs. The only negative is that the bed mattresses are extremely worn out or just Of very bad quality. They need be replaced to be in line W/the high quality of the rest of the Kottage. Great kitchen. Oh yeah, no shower bath soap in any of the bathrooms, that Should be provided. But. Overall really nice place and had an ejoyable Stay. Also, working w/Rsvp was a pleasure.


Manager Response

The master king bedroom mattress was replaced last year(2011) with a Select Sleeper mattress so I can only imagine either you didn't mean that one or didn't know how to 'select' it for your comfort. I will speak to the homeowner about the other mattresses to see if they need replacing also. Thank you for your input and feedback!
