Thank you so much for your kind words Marty! We appreciate the feedback.
Unfortunately, the nearby home owners association does not allow access to renters. But! We do have the smaller Hagar Park and Roadside Beaches only a mile away & many larger beaches in St. Joseph & South Haven, just 10-15 minutes away :). We are definitely not within walking distance to a lot of amenities (although there is a great new little restaurant a couple of blocks away), however, so many of our previous guests have appreciated our location halfway between the 2 larger towns of St. Joseph & South Haven. Here is what a couple of our last guests wrote:
"Just as charming the second time! The Sand Dollar Flat is a lovely, convenient, and charming place to spend time in St. Joseph/Grand Haven region. Lots to do and see the area and bungalow provides all the amenities of home. I've been there before and hope to go again in the future!"
"Perfect location, perfect little flat! Our family of four stayed this August and just adored everything about this place. Perfectly located between St. Joe and South Haven, so much so you can easily visit and spend time in both. Super close to two beaches (we preferred Roadside Beach). The flat itself was so cute and very clean. It had everything we needed for a relaxing week away. Cris and Steve were wonderful. Cris sent thorough information before our stay and was great about providing additional info about the area. We noticed the first night that the DVD player was broken and notified them (not a big deal to have one or not but wanted them to know). Within about a day Steve came over and replaced it. You can tell they truly care about their guests and their stay. One of our little ones keeps asking if we are going back to the "vacation house." We will definitely look to stay at the Sand Dollar Flat again in the future. Thank you for the perfect place for a great family vacation!"
