Why G L Flis chose Harbor Springs

Willow Villa is designed to welcome you to your home away from home.

The wonderful community of Harbor Cove in Harbor Springs, MI will bring you and your family closer to the activities you enjoy the most.

What we have discovered about the Harbor Cove community is that it provides a casual & relaxing approach to Little Traverse Bay living. The conveniences of both Harbor Springs and Petoskey are a few minutes drive in either direction. Yet, its just a short stroll along sandy forest paths, through the summer sunshine to our private beach. Shared picnicking and barbecue areas throughout the grounds have allowed us to make new friends; which is why we have been told by many that they and their children have returned to Harbor Cove year after year.

What makes this villa unique

With nearly a mile of private beach on Little Traverse Bay of Lake Michigan, numerous family activities and hiking trails, it has something for everyone. Willow Villa is a bright and spacious house with multiple living spaces along with 5 bedrooms. It's the perfect place to relax in comfort.

The position of Harbor Cove beach on the north shore of Little Traverse Bay has provided us the opportunity to enjoy countless sunrises and scrap books full of sunset views over the open waters of Lake Michigan.

Sailing, wind surfing and lake swimming start in early June......and our summer beach video "A Day at the Beach" was filmed in late September!

High season in summer offers soft sand, crystal clear water and warm breezes. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Nice, clean updated property. Had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay. Close to boyne and restaurants. Would def rent again. The dishwasher wouldn’t get the dishes clean so had to wash by hand - so that was frustrating. Overall very nice!

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your time in Harbor Springs. We appreciate your feedback. As part of our general maintenance routine, we had a technician test all of the appliances the week before your arrival, and all were functioning properly. We also had one of our caretakers soak and hand scrub all the pots, pans & baking dishes just before your arrival, to be sure everything was sparkling clean. The dishwasher is new and has multiple cleaning cycles including "heavy wash" and "sanitize", which offer the deepest cleaning. Sorry you had that experience & we will certainly have the dishwasher re-tested immediately. Thanks again for staying with us & we look forward to seeing you again.

Everything and more that you could ask for in a rental.

Great location. Private, yet right across street from the pool. Very clean. Tastefully decorated. Great for our three generations of family. Space for all. Close to private beach. Amenities you don't usually get...hand pump soap in all baths, along with shampoo, conditioner and bar soap. Good time enjoyed by all! Well appointed kitchen - everything you could want and more.

Very updated and clean.

  • 5 of 5

We had to come up north for a wedding and needed to rent a house that could accommodate 9 people ranging in age from 3 to 93. This house was perfect!

The house was so clean and nicely decorated. With such a range in ages that traveled with us it was surpringly very quiet with two separate living areas and it had a very well equipped kitchen. When do you really see a kitchen aid stand mixer at a rental house.

We used the indoor pool as it was in the 50s and 60s outside and the club house was nice also. The pool was warm and very clean facilities.

We would definitely choose this rental again if we come back to the area!

Overview of our stay at Willow Villa....

  • 4 of 5

We had a great experience at Willow Villa. Our initial contact with the owner was very efficient and informative and he was readily available when we had a few questions during our stay. We were happily surprised when we arrived that the condo was very clean and fully stocked with towels, amenities, beach bags/beach towels, plenty of soap, shampoo, laundry soap, board games, etc.! The decorating was very nice also - it looked exactly as the photos show. The best thing about it for our family was the layout and the space. With so many bedrooms and two separate family rooms - everyone was able to relax and enjoy themselves without feeling like we were crowded. The kitchen was very open with a huge dining room and living room attached. We had 7 people staying there, and it was plenty of room. The pool and tennis courts were directly next to the unit - great for the kids. The only downfall was that we overlooked a large parking lot on one side when we were outside on the deck. Great proximity to downtown Harbor Springs and Petoskey. Overall, a great experience and we would highly recommend it.
