    The view across the Crystal River out to Lake Michigan is beautiful! The condo was clean & comfortable. There is so much to do in the area that the cooler weather wasn't a problem. This is a very nice condo in a great location that we would rent again.

    a guest from Bloomington, IN recommends this vacation rental

    First, the company, Up North, is well run.
    Second, this is a fantastic unit, the view is wonderful.
    I used to try to get places that were higher up, second and third floor, but what is nice about this unit is you are right on the river, can walk about without running up and down the stairs!
    The parking is good, the kitchen is fine, the heat works well.
    We are going to stay here again.
    It is NOT the most modern of places, but nothing is OLD that it does not work.
    For example, the park-kay flooring is very nice in the kitchen.
    The dishwasher works fine.
    The frig is fine.
    There is plenty of room to put food up.
    The carpet is new in the front room.
    Bathroom is upgraded and the tub and shower are very nice.
    I would strongly recommend this unit for a couple!

    The condo wasn't ready when we arrived. I called and they sent someone out to clean it. When the person did come she did a good job of cleaning it. The rest of our stay was enjoyable.

      We are so sorry that the condo wasn't ready right away but so glad you had a great time!

    Terri M from Madison, WI recommends this vacation rental

    Wonderful. There were 2 lock boxes for the key and spent a frustrating 15 minutes when we arived trying to open one that would not open before we discovered the 2nd one. Would be helpful if there was only one lock box or the directions stated which lock box to use. Otherwise our stay was great.

    • Manager Responded on 11/8/2016

      Very sorry for the confusion! We are happy to see you had a wonderful stay despite the hiccup at the beginning. Hope to help you again with your lodging needs.

    Janine H from Rochester, MI - Michigan recommends this vacation rental

    I stayed at the Crystal Beach #5 in July with my two daughters. The location of this condo is fabulous. It had enough amenities for a comfortable 2 night stay. The condo itself could use a facelift, it is very dated. There were only three of us but for four people, the condo is lacking in living room furniture; a loveseat would be a perfect addition for extra seating. The pull out sleeper is VERY hard on the back, would probably be ok for a little kid, I wish I would have brought an inflatable mattress. Also, I would have used the deck if it had something more than dirty plastic chairs.
    We were not in the condo much, as the beach was a walk right outside the door and we visited the Sleeping Bear Dunes and Fishtown. We had a fabulous stay, the condo was fine, the view and location were top notch.

    Pam A from Holland, MI recommends this vacation rental

    Recently my wife and I had an occasion to re-visit one of our favorite spots along the Lake Michigan Shoreline. Crystal Beach runs along the inside of the Crystal River and is within 200 feet of the lakeshore facing the Manitous. The Up North Vacation Rental staff is always courteous and helpful in finding us just the right property when we're able to get away. The rentals are extremely clean and well appointed, making us feel like were visiting a bit of "home." I would highly recommend UNVR to anyone looking for getaway properties in North Michigan. Overall, I rate the experience a "5."

    • Manager Responded on 11/12/2015

      Thank you for staying with us. We appreciate your kind words and hope you will visit again soon.

    I enjoyed my week at Crystal Beach #5 in September when things are quieter but the weather was still very nice. The property and location were just what I wanted for a relaxing week to walk the beach and read some books. It is a nice walk along the beach into Glen Arbor for shops and restaurants or a short drive. I have been to the area many times and there are many things to do and places to see if you want to keep busier.
