Guestbook comments from the manager

Our kids loved the beach. The sandy bottom just seemed to go on for miles.

Luxurious and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous, very spacious condo that I'd highly recommend. My kids and I wanted a place near the beach and this is literally on the east bay beach with private beach access. The condo itself is lovely as is the pool area. The walls are soundproof and we never heard a peep from our neighbors even though the property seemed pretty full. The location is great, very close to downtown with shops and restaurants in walking distance. The property manager was attentive and seemed to always appear right when we had a question. We'd definitely love to stay here again!

Great place to stay & play

  • 5 of 5

We were celebrating a 40th birthday with 8 girlfriends & everyone was happy with the accomodations. The unit looks better in person than the pics. Great decor, clean, well stocked kitchen, lots of linens & towels, nice furniture & lots of windows. Bedrooms are a nice size with queen beds but no extra room for air mattresses on the floor unless it's a twin. The living room has 2 twin size chair pullouts that we're comfy the couch pulled out as well. An aero bed is also available but you'll need to move the dining room table a bit to make room. Ground floor walk out level was convenient & there's outdoor furniture to enjoy a meal elfresco. The unit is located on the side of building (not facing the bay) & furthest from the water but still super close to the beach. Downtown Traverse city is 5 miles away & has great shopping & restaurants. The owner is easy to work with & local managers are available if needed. We had a great time & would definitely stay again.

Great weekend getaway location!

  • 5 of 5

We did a girls weekend in Traverse City, and wanted somewhere classy with a great view of the lake. We also wanted somewhere that was close enough to the city where we there would be some restaurants and coffee shops. This place completely fit the bill. It is super clean and more beautiful in real life than even in the pictures. It is also rather spacious and all of the sleeping options we used were comfortable (we had 6 guests--2 beds, and a couch). Additionally, the owner quickly responds to email, and promptly returned my security deposit once the keys were returned. I wouldn't hesitate to take this property if you want to spend a weekend or even a week in Traverse City. Oh, and the location is basically dead on where the map says it is.
