    Sarah T from Fenton, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We had a group of 8 adults and had a long weekend wine tasting on the peninsula. This house was just perfect- comfortable, clean and perfect for entertaining! We didn’t want to leave it was so nice! Will definitely return and look forward to making it a yearly event. The people from Vacation Rentals were very informative as well, and called before and after check in to make sure everything was okay. Overall fantastic experience!

    a guest from Chicago, IL recommends this vacation rental

    The home is beautiful and was perfect for a Labor Day weekend wedding in Northern Michigan. Although the home sleeps 10, one of the beds is a pull-out in a nook off the kitchen, so 8 is an ideal number of guests.

    Julie K from South Lyon, MI recommends this vacation rental

    We have traveled extensively, but this was our first experience at renting a home. We could not have been more pleased. This is a stunning home with all the amenities you need, and all that you could want. The beach was just beautiful. There was plenty of room for our party of 9. Working with Kathleen from Visit Up North Vacation Rentals was a breeze. Everything is so organized and thorough.

    a guest from Perkasie, PA recommends this vacation rental

    What a beautiful home located about 35 minutes from Traverse City. Home is modern and has a great view of Lake Leelanau. Home was very spacious and clean and easily worked for our family. Kitchen was stunning and had everything needed for our Thanksgiving meal. Plenty of parking too! We were here in November but can only imagine how great a summer vacation would be here! Couple of improvements: house needs better internet connectivity. My wife and I both needed to work and had to go to HopLot or TC to do so. Also, kitchen needs a few bigger cutting boards. Both minor things of course! Don't hesitate to rent here!

      We are pleased you enjoy Fun in the Sun. Indeed it is a lovely home. Regarding the internet, this location is limited with the type of service it can get. There are also places in Lk Leelanau Maple City and Cedar that have internet if the need should arise. (a little closer)

    a guest from Grand Haven, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Located perfectly in the middle of wine country! Beautiful view of Lake Leelanau and the home was absolutely amazing. It had all of the amenities that you could ask for and then some. We went during the first weekend of October so utilizing the lake was not priority, but would definitely return in the summer months to enjoy it. All of the rooms and bathrooms were very comfortable in the kitchen bar area was perfect for our group. Our group consisted of four couples so the two rooms with twin beds were not ideal however I could see as a family utilizing this house would be perfect for children. I was also excited to see that the homeowners were Michigan State fans...Go Green! Thank you for an amazing stay and I would highly recommend this to anyone.

    Mary G from Huntington Woods, MI recommends this vacation rental

    The property is lovely and the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway. We were two families of four and we all had plenty of space and all the amenities you could ever want or need. Two things we weren't thrilled about...the lawn and beach are covered in goose/duck poop, kind of gross and hard for the little kids to dodge. Also, a couple of the white rails on the upstairs landing are totally loose. This needs to be addressed because someone could really get hurt. All in all though, great stay.

    a guest from Holt, MI does not recommend this vacation rental.

    While this home is lovely and the furniture and appliances are very nice, we less than impressed with the yard (it sits below lake level, and is very, very wet). We planned to play yard games outdoors all week, and enjoy the lake, and it was not the experience we had expected. We spent our first morning clearing the yard and beach area of goose poop so that we could even get to the water.

    Also -- this was advertised as a home that sleeps 10, however, I would not recommend it for 10 adults. We had 10 adults in our group, and our son and daughter were on the pull out couch (son) and living room couch (daughter). While they are young adults, and certainly rolled with it, I would not want to be there with a large group expecting to have ample room for 10 adults to sleep. We read in the description of the property that the upstairs bedrooms were as follows: "Upstairs, there are three bedrooms with 1 Queen, 1 Queen, and 4 Twins.". Our assumption from that description was that the upstairs contains one room with a queen bed; a second room with a queen bed; and one room with four twin beds. Instead, upstairs there is one room with a queen bed, and two rooms with two twin beds each. Again -- if that fits what you need, this was a lovely home.

    The home is located in an area that is close to both Leland and Suttons Bay, and we enjoyed exploring both towns. We were able to rent a pontoon boat from a nearby marina, and had a lovely day on the water (we wished we had done that more than once!).

    All in all, we had a nice week. Unfortunately, if we had understood the sleeping arrangements better, we wouldn't have selected this home. I would recommend that if you are a family with plans to spend time on the yard and the beach, you come prepared to experience a very wet yard, and plan to clear up some "leftovers" from the geese that are going to be around the property.

    Our stay at Fun in the Sun was absolutely amazing! The house was straight out of HGTV perfection! Clean , accommodating and beautiful! Perfect home for our girls weekend! The view was priceless as well! We enjoy a bonfire , kayaking, cooking in the spacious kitchen and relaxing on the back patio with some wine overlooking the lake! Will be back again there's no doubt only wish we could have checked in before 4pm so we could have enjoyed the whole 1st day

    • Manager Responded on 5/31/2016

      We are so glad you had a great stay! Next time if you are coming outside of July and August give us a call there is always a chance to check in early unless it was booked back to back in which case we need the time to clean.

    Shardae W from Detroit, MI recommends this vacation rental

    My experience here at Fun in the Sun was beyond my expectations. The house was fully stocked, extra covers, linens, dishes, etc. I could go on and on about how wonderful this home is. We celebrated my Birthday here and everyone felt this was the perfect place to do so. We had girl talks by the fireplace both nights...something we will always remember. As I was cooking, I took a quick glance at the back window and could see the sun setting over the beautiful Lake Leelanau. Absolutely beautiful! Cant wait to visit again with my girls.

    Our group loved Fun in the Sun -- convenient location for all the wineries and a spectacular view of Lake Leelanau. The location feels very private, but not too far from "civilization". The home is brand new with very nice finishes and we had a lot of fun cooking in this kitchen -- great for entertaining and accommodating larger groups.

    The property was very clean and modern. Stocked as promised and online photos were very accurate as to what we could expect. The home had several "high tech" amenities, such as the heat control and kitchen appliances. It took some time to figure out the various appliances, and we never did get the microwave to work.

    • Manager Responded on 10/27/2015

      We are sorry about the microwave and that has since been repaired. We thank you so much for staying at Fun in the Sun.

    We had a Girls Weekend in Lake Leelanau and absolutely loved your home. We are also all MSU grads so loved seeing all of the MSU items in the house! The house was better than we thought and we loved our stay!
    Note: Would have been nice to have wifi, mifi was limiting. Also, we thought the house had a gas grill - but it was charcoal.

    • Manager Responded on 10/27/2015

      Thank you for staying at Fun in the Sun. Yes the mifi does not allow for streaming videos which we think is what you had issues with.

    a guest from Clawson, MI recommends this vacation rental

    I rented the White House on Lake Leelanau for a week in June. Our vacation was simply amazing. The owners have created a private sanctuary with the lake in front of the house and woods surrounding the property on both sides.

    Having a cup of coffee in the morning at the outside table and watching the sun rise over the lake is exponential magic.

    The interior of the house is beautiful and comfortable. Each night we would gather in the kitchen to collaboratively cook a meal. It doesn't get much better than sitting around a dining room table with your family, eating a home cooked meal, and having the lake as a back drop.

    The house is in a wonderful location, minutes from the village of Lake Leelanau, and a short drive to Lake Michigan beaches, hiking, and other great destinations in the county.

    Our only complaint was that the tv was not working. Otherwise, our stay at the White House was perfection personified.
