“Clean, quiet and close to everything”
Reviewed June 21, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I really enjoyed my stay. The unit was very clean and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable as well. Nice outside spaces to laze some time away either on the porch or in the yard. I booked on a friends recommendation and was not disappointed.

“HIdden Gem”
Reviewed June 15, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

What a great location with a really sweet owner. She was readily available with any questions that we had. She had tips on places to eat and things to do. This is really a hidden gem and we are so happy that we found it. We have suggested to family and friends. We will be booking again!

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights. From start to finish I loved this place. It was clean, smell very good it was very quiet and the bed it was very comfortable it was really easy to get in and get out but what I really loved the most and it really surprised me was how t well equipped the kitchen was... we cooked almost every day and we have a full privacy...The check in and out was really easy. I definitely will be back.

“Great Place to Stay! If only there wasn't so many spiders!”
Reviewed September 9, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The place is beautiful but it could have been cleaner. The inside of the couch was filled with sand and really grossed me out :( And there was TONS of spiders on the porch! I was afraid to even sit up there at night! Also there was a large screw sticking out where they screwed in their flag and it was right at eye level of my 2 year old! Very dangerous. But other then those few things you really cant beat the price and it is right behind the outlet mall which was great! I loved the location! Kind of in a scary part of town tho.. Overall I wouldn't mind staying again.. (if they got rid of the spiders and sweep the couch out) Very cheap for what you get :) If you just want a place to put your bags while you shop this would be the place!

We always appreciate getting reviews, so that we can improve our apartments and service. We would like everyone to know that if you ever have a problem, to just call. I am in Michigan City and the problems can usually be solved quickly. Last year, the beginning of Sept., all of a sudden and almost over night spiders appeared on the front porch. No one hates spiders more that I do. I hosed down the porch and bought a spray that spiders hate and once sprayed, they leave. I read in the review that the spiders were on the porch, immediately I hosed the porch and used the spray. The spiders are gone, but I cannot guarantee that an occasional spider will not appear, but I hate spiders and will do my best not to have any. Last year we put on a new roof and upgraded the porch, that one screw that you mentioned was put up by the contractors and must stay, but I will cover it appropriately so that a small child will not be injured. This is important and thank you for bringing this to my attention, this home is 115 years old and we try to do everything possible to keep it attractive and safe.
I like everything first class and clean, we try and have the same for our guests. Please remember, Michigan City is a wonderful beach town and we hope everyone enjoys the beach. The beach is sandy and sometimes a little of the sand falls under the cushions. The city has a shower at the beach and we have beach towels and chairs for you to enjoy. Thanks for staying with us!! Take care Darlene

“Great weekend getaway”
Reviewed August 31, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My fiance and I spent two nights in Michigan City, IN. Our stay at Darlene's rental was excellent. All amenities were present and the unit exceeded expectations. Close to shopping, dining and coffee. We highly recommend Shady Creek Winery and the Indiana Dunes State Park, both of which are less than 20 minutes away.

“Good for a short getaway”
Reviewed July 30, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

First off Darlene is great! I have a tot and a dog and she was happy to have both as guests. The place is clean, and if you're in shape, in walking distance of the lake. She had drinks and water waiting for us (she even had a water bowl down for my pup, so sweet), and in the hall keeps beach towels for you to take if you forgot to pack your own. I am not detail-oriented and it didn't hit me that the living room area is only closed off from the bedroom by the curtains which made for some quiet nights after the little one drifted off (the picture clearly shows this is the case, just pointing it out for others like me). Wi-fi was strong.

Be sure to walk down to Cabo's for dinner and some ice cream, both were great.
