We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this Benton Harbor house. The house was immaculate and had plenty of space for 5 people. The kitchen had everything you could need in terms of utensils and kitchenware. The bedrooms and living areas were very comfortable! The hosts were quick to respond to our questions. We would love to stay there again!

Cheri, thank you for this great review!  We agree, Beachwood Fairway Retreat is a fabulous property.  It sleeps 4-5 and is a short walk to Lake Michigan.  The master bedroom  overlooks the #6 tee of the Harbor Shores golf course.  We would love to have your stay again.

Great quiet neighborhood/ Easy access to beaches
Beautiful newer property in Benton Harbor near Jean Klock Park. Super clean and kitchen was well stocked with every utensil and appliance you could ever need. Beds were comfy. Access to running trail on golf course public trail system was right out the back door. We ran to the beach everyday. (walking is easy too). Darn near perfect property, except the fireplace didn't work the week we were there. We called management immediately upon checking in and they were very responsive. They just couldn't get the parts timely during the week of Christmas. Will consider the property again when we are visiting family in the area.

Kristin, we are so happy that you enjoyed your time at Beachwood Fairway Retreat.  Thank you for writing this delightful review.  Beachwood Fairway Retreat sleeps 4-5 and is a short 5-minute walk to Lake Michigan.  We apologize for not being able to get the fireplace fixed for you over Christmas.  We'd love to work with you again in the near future.

Wonderful Retreat
The row house was perfect for our visit to the Benton Harbor/St Joe area. The house appeared brand new and super clean, and was within walking distance to Jean Klock Park and Lake Michigan beach. Downtown St Joe is just across the river and has a wide range of wonderful dining options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A wonderful retreat!

“This home is the perfect place for everyone all around! Not only is it immaculate it has every single thing you need to enjoy the adorable city Saint Joseph’s. We needed to check in early because we had a wedding and the hosts made sure they kept in touch to get us in ASAP. What really appeals is that this house is versatile, from coming down for a girls weekend to a family beach vacay, this rental has everything it needs for everyone! We will definitely be back! Thank you!”
