Overview

Acme Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

If you're planning to be in Traverse City and would prefer to avoid hotels or staying at a relative's house, read on....

There's an old expression: 'If a deal seems to good to be true, it probably is.'

Well, you just found the exception to the rule. We have low rates. Yes indeed, they are low. We do this for a few basic reasons:

1) Like most people, we have a mortgage. Rental income pays the mortgage. High rates mean no rentals. A 'dark' condo generates no income. Our method is a win-win for all parties. You get a deal. We pay the mortgage and don't wind up as a foreclosure statistic.

2) Look at our feedback. These folks refer their friends. Everybody likes to share a good thing with their friends. This means we sell out most of the year.

3) Gas prices have been HIGH for so long, this is our small effort to help people.

Our condo rents for hundreds less than the Grand Traverse Resort. When people compare us to what the resort charges, we sell out in all seasons months in advance, even if you choose to purchase resort amenities on your own!

Location: The Shores at the Grand Traverse Resort at the intersection of US31 & M72.

For those familiar with The Shores Complex, the Condo is in Building 6, main floor, facing Grand Traverse Bay.

Conveniently located near gas stations, restaurants and even a McDonald's. About 10 minutes to downtown Traverse City.

Unit size one bedroom deluxe. Sleeps up to four adults. Beautiful views from your lower level walkout to sip your morning coffee! Bring your laptop as we are Wi-Fi equipped. Economy kitchen with dishwasher, microwave and cook-top. Jacuzzi tub for two!

One mile to the Grand Traverse Resort. Four miles to Turtle Creek Casino. Dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, and sufficient pots and pans, plates, glasses, and tableware to serve the number of occupants indicated in this listing. Cable with HBO, DVD/VCR, 32' HDTV, bath towels, hand towels and wash cloths, paper towels, toilet tissue, soaps and detergents, and other consumable supplies will be furnished. No phone. No pets. NO KIDS. No Smoking. Also, due to the fact that we rent our condo exclusive of the resort's rental program, any resort amenities are on a 'paid for' basis. Please consult the resort if you are interested in golf, the spa, etc. While this affects very few guests, it also means that the outdoor pool near the condo is not available. THE BEACH, HOWEVER, IS JUST A FEW STEPS FURTHER....and who needs a pool when you can frolic in Grand Traverse Bay?????

SLEEPING ARRANGEMENTS: One KING SIZE BED and one QUEEN SIZE SLEEPER SOFA.

You will be able to check into the unit after 4 PM on the first date listed and you will be expected to check out of the unit before 10 AM on the last date listed.

A guest must be at least 21 years of age to check-in at our property.

If you have questions feel free to call us. E-mail or call to check availability for dates you are looking for!!

This condo is available for a short term Spring lease.

Here's the perfect quiet and picturesque place to relax in between winery tours, winter sports, the Microbrew Festival, Suds N Snow, excellent dining and picturesque Northern Michigan Winters. In addition, you'll be close to great shopping and all the sights that make the Grand Traverse area one of the top vacation destinations in America.

PAYMENT: There are no shipping, handling or extra cleaning fees. We take Paypal or checks that have time to clear. We must receive payment in time to arrange your reservation and send you the keys. Prior to confirmation of your reservation, we require a signed Rental Agreement as well as a nominal (refundable) security deposit (based on normal wear & tear.)

Great location but furniture and interior need work

  • 2 of 5

My adult daughter and I stayed for 4 days. Gary was very helpful and the view and location are great. Unfortunately, the couch/hide-a-bed is so worn out it is uncomfortable to sit on and impossible to sleep on. We tried to share the king size bed but the mattress is rather soft. One bathroom sink is cracked and there are lime scale deposits on the shower doors. Where the carpet meets the tile, the carpet is so worn out, the metal teeth that hold the carpet in place are sharp and cut my foot. Although it was very clean, I would not recommend this property given I can find units for the same price nearby. We did enjoy renting bikes in Traverse City and going to Sleeping Bear Dunes. We have decided that we would rather stay further north on the bay to avoid the heavy traffic and congestion of Traverse City.

a wonderful experience

My husband and I had never been to Traverse City. This condo was everything it said and more. Much nicer than staying in a hotel room. We would definitely recommend. We love using VRBO.

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife I along with our 3 young daughters (5 years, 2 years, and 6 weeks) were looking for a nice place to stay near Traverse City and my wife discovered this condo on the VRBO site. My wife and I were very happy with our stay at this condo as the location is excellent and everything at this condo was clean and well maintained. My 5-year-old and my 2-year-old enjoyed the short walk down to the water and the sandy beach is great for family fun. This condo provided everything that we could have asked for and more. The owner of this property provides a great value for a fun family vacation. My wife and I will be repeat renters of this property as our family really enjoyed our summer vacation at this condo. The owner of this property was great to work with and provided many great suggestions on sites and attractions in the area. Overall, a great experience and I'm looking forward to returning to this condo in the future.

Wonderful relaxing weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about this lovely apartment. It looks out onto beautiful trees and shrubs and affords excellent privacy. It is a very short walk to the manicured beach which has a commanding view of the bay. The pool area also looks out over the bay and we were able to get drinks and good food at the café. The apartment itself is very quite and the bed is comfortable. There are separate thermostats for the living area and the bedroom which helped us greatly as my daughter slept in the living area and she likes the temperate a bit warmer than my wife and I. Across the street is a beautiful pine forest nature preserve and we spent late afternoons walking through the forest to the lake. Most importantly, the owners are extremely nice folks and when we lost our keys, they went out of their way to meet us and provide us with new keys. The entire process of renting the apartment was very easy and the owners were a delight to deal with. All in all I would gladly recommend this apartment to anyone interested in a Traverse City getaway.

Too good, but definitely true!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The condo was a bit bigger than we had imagined and we were also pleasantly surprised to look out the balcony windows and see the bay just a short walk away. It was very clean and comfortable, no hassles at all just an enjoyable weekend away. Thanks again for everything! We will definitely stay here again and will recommend this place to our friends.
