NEWER OSCODA BEACH HOUSE, ON LAKE HURON, PRIVATE SANDY BEACH, RIGHT IN TOWN

Oscoda House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 8

Location, location and lots of sand! Welcome to Sunny Slope Beach House. Located right on Lake Huron with 80 feet of soft sugar sand beach, on a quiet street off of US 23 centrally located in the heart of Oscoda, Mi. You get the best of both worlds with this rental; on the waterfront, lots of sand for the kids to play, volleyball, relax and you can walk to just about everything - restaurants, bars, ice cream shops, movie theater, putt putt golf, bowling, the city park with free concerts in the park and so much more.

If you like Lake Michigan's sandy beach, you will Love Oscoda and Lake Huron! Our beach house property is flat, no stairs to climb down to get to the beach. It's all sand, no brush or path to walk through. Paradise right out the door onto the deck and beach!

The Gailes at Lakewood Shores - One of the best golf courses in Michigan, listed in the top 10, is just a few miles away. If you enjoy golfing this is one you don't want to miss out.

We are also only 15 minutes from East Tawas and all they have to offer as well. Enjoy both cities, one in walking distance and one a short drive.

This vacation home is tastefully decorated in neutral tones. Many dining options; inside at the long counter and attached table or dine outdoors on the deck. In the evening, light a fire in the firepit outside or in the fall enjoy the gas fireplace while watching a show or movie on the flat screen tv. Kids and adults can enjoy air hockey and many board game options. Just in case, there is a wii game system as well.

Master bedroom has a kingsize bed, bay window and doorwall. Master bedroom faces the water. Guest rooms include a queen size bed in one room and 2 twin bunk beds (total of 4 beds). There is a full bath on the main floor and a full bath upstairs between the 2 bedrooms. Washer and dryer included in case you need to do a quick load.

The owners have rented through other places in the past and have tried to anticipate the needs of renters. Many extras are provided to make your vacation a little smoother.

If there is something you don't see, please don't hesitate to ask any questions.

We hope you will enjoy spending your vacation time or a nice long weekend at sunny slope beach house.

This beach house is our dream come true. We searched for several years every summer until we found what we were looking for. We have renovated it to give it more of a 'beachy' vacation feel. We hope our guests will enjoy it and especially take good care of it.

Jacqui Gretzinger purchased this house in 2011

It's a great location right in town and yet still very private, lots of soft sand, walking distance to many things.

On a quiet street yet right in town and walking distance to so many things.

We had an amazing time at Jacqui's beach house! It is super clean and has every amenity that you would need to enjoy your stay. We immediately felt at home. The beach was amazing! White soft sand all the way to the water. Great for our family (3 young children). They played in the sand all day and enjoyed the quick walks down to the waters edge. The house is very private, we had the entire beach to ourselves our entire stay. We are already looking forward to returning. Thanks Jacqui for sharing this wonderful oasis!

OUTSTANDING BEACH PROPERTY!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Incredible upkeep and nicely updated. The beach was very impressive and the view is one of the best in Michigan. Short distance to just about all Michigan has to offer....canoeing, kayaking, antique shops, cute towns to shop, etc. We also had the experience of witnessing a brilliant full moon that lit up the beach like dawn and took our breath away. The owner is amazing with communication and puts high priority on making sure the house is pristine for each and every guest. 11/10!!!

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely amazing beach house. The beach is equal to or better than any on the west side of the state. The house has incredible views of Lake Huron and is super clean, updated, and layed out wonderfully. My wife and two boys (ages 2 and 6) enjoyed our stay immensely and would highly recommend. Sandy beach, close to town, great for the kids and the owner is beyond helpful!

Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
This home is beautiful, well maintained and immaculate. It is away from busy streets, yet close enough to walk or bike to town for ice cream. The beach comes right up to your door and is perfect for swimming...no rocks, clean sand. Kids can play on the beach all day with the toys provided and there is lots to do in case of rain with the air hockey table, movies, and games provided. There was enough seating for us to entertain guests for dinner and the screened in porch kept bugs away. Jacqui made the whole process very easy and provided many special touches. We really enjoyed our relaxing vacation and would recommend this rental to anyone.

Perfect getaway vacation house

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed at Sunny Slope for a week each of the last two years and are now fully spoiled by how perfect the place is and that EVERY detail is taken care of by Jacqui. If there was any concern about feeling isolated while still so close to downtown, that was erased after the first walk down to the beach where the only thing in sight was miles of beautiful sand. The street is tucked quietly away from the main road in Oscoda and it actually feels more seclusive than other places I've stayed well north of town. We have three young children and the place could not be more suitable for them. The shoreline is gentle and sandy for the really young ones, and all the kids love the bunk beds upstairs. There are board games, video games, and flat screen TV's to keep busy at night. There really are no complaints about this place at all - highly recommended!

Beautiful Location and User Friendly Home!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week at this well equipped home on the shores of Lake Huron. The house is just as described, had everything we needed for family of 5 and very clean, well maintained. The beach and water are clear and clean. Our little ones could splash and play easily as it is shallow and no sharp drop off. Jacqui is a dream to work with, provides lots of info and is very helpful. We would definitely love to go back to Sunny Slope for another great family vacation!
