Spacious & Comfy
Overall a very good rental - great location for our birding at Tiscornia and other local area parks. Very clean, comfortable and spacious. The outdoor areas would be an extra bonus in nicer weather. The stairs to multiple levels would be difficult for some. A few minor annoyances: there was no house key even though location of such was in instructions (accessed property through garage key pad); guide to use of remotes was not at all helpful in figuring out how to play a DVD and extra speakers made sound quality even worse; remote batteries were dead and no extras to be found. Host was very helpful when contacted.

Mary, it's always great to find a new birding location, and we're glad that you found it with us!  We appreciate your feedback, as that allows us to give guests an even better experience.  We'd love to work with you again.

A Perfect Wedding Weekend
We stayed at this beautiful home for the weekend of my best friend's wedding and it was absolutely perfect! The bride loved this home and getting ready there was a dream. The location was perfect and was close to the venue and so many great places to take pictures. This quiet area was a wonderful retreat for a fun weekend with love and friendship.

Ann, we're so glad that we could help you find the perfect spot for you to attend your best friend's wedding.  It sounds like your heart was  full of love.  We hope that you come back again to spend some quiet time.

Anniversary Weekend
The condo was easy to find. This condo was beautiful and looks exactly like the pictures. The Master bedroom bed was comfortable, high end sheets and comfortable. it was great to be able to walk to the park & beach area. Also other walking paths as well around the golf course was great. Not far from South Haven. It was great to be able to garage our corvette. When asking questions the office staff (Jayne, Haleigh & Rebecca) were quick to answer all of my questions. Will definitely stay here again.

Karen,  thank you for this great review and for your kind words for the staff at FVR.  Corvettes are meant to be pampered in a garage so we're glad that we could accommodate it!  We look forward to your return.

Amazing Rental
Such a beautiful unit. So many essentials provided which helped tremendously. Close to the lake and beautiful Jean Klock Beach, as well as close to so many amazing restaurants!! We loved walking the cart path and riding the bikes that came with the unit for us to use during our stay. I had a couple of questions and the management staff were prompt in responding. We had a wonderful time and will be back to explore this area again and will definitely stay here again!

Thank you for sharing your experience, Karen! There are so many wonderful things to do around the area, and we're so glad that you got to enjoy many of them! Thanks again for staying with us!

Great stay at the bungalow!
The beach bungalow is just what we needed! Perfectly spacious, comfortable and cozy. There were four of us girls, so it was nice to have the extra bed downstairs. The kitchen was fully stocked to prepare a meal, only wish we would have remembered to bring coffee! There were a couple of cute restaurants within a mile or so, and the beach was so close. Can’t wait to return in the summer to take advantage of the warm weather activities!

Bridget, we'd love to have you back this summer!  We love knowing that you and your friends had such a good time.  We were happy to host you.

A delightful stay
Our family of 4 greatly enjoyed our stay at Beachwood Fairway Retreat. It was immaculate, spacious, and well equipped in the kitchen. We enjoyed riding the bikes to the beach and around the gold course. You can easily bike to every place (restaurants,shops, and silver beach in St. Joes) if you choose or take a short drive. Great location and well maintained condo.

Kristen, it sounds like you had a  great time, and we love hearing about it!  we'd love to host you again.

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.

“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!”

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!
