We had our family reunion at Villa Santorini during a brutal cold snap and so cannot comment on any of the outdoor-ness but the house itself was lovely! The wood burning stoves + central heat kept the whole house toasty warm in spite of -15 wind chill. The kitchen is extremely well equipped (magically so, actually, for a rental). Hilary was super-helpful and immediately responsive to any questions we had. The house has been very thoughtfully supplied with everything you need – from extra beach towels to board games – for a perfect vacation. The whole house is a top-notch renovation – high end appliances, fixtures, media, etc. Classy all the way. 


Our group of 15 enjoyed a New Year’s weekend trip to Villa Santorini and had the most amazing time. The kitchen was just perfect for a group this size with several cooks among us. Plentiful dishware, utensils, cookware, bakeware, and so on. We loved having plenty of space for wine since we brought quite a bit, and the immense amount of counter space was a real treat. The other common spaces (living room and media room) were perfect for games and movies (a few of us even did a little circuit training workout one morning and had plenty of space). The bedrooms were very clean and comfortable. I was spoiled in the master suite with amazing built-in water sanctuary bathroom, but the other guests shared only positive feedback on each other room and bathroom (including the fold-out couch).  I cannot wait to return to this, our new standard for group getaways! Huge thank-you to the owners Jim and Hillary for being super responsive and helpful.


We arrived a bit early for our stay and were able to see the care that went into preparing this property for our stay. The location is easy to find and has beautiful views. We have a large family and searched for a property that would accommodate 27 and Villa Santorini is exceptional for this, plenty of room for the kids and not noisy when it was time for the tots to go to sleep. Hilary and Jim are exceptional hosts, eager to make the stay memorable. We did enjoy the wood burning stoves, the media room and the large well equipped kitchen was a very pleasant place for preparing our meals. Easy access to the lake Michigan shore is another plus, even in the cold weather we enjoyed hiking the dunes. Parking is a bit limited and overflow parking is about 2 miles away and safe which worked out well. My family appreciates the memories made and we’re looking forward to a return to Villa Santorini. Thank you Jim & Hilary 🙂
