Welcome to 'The Sand Dollar Flat', part of Beach Glass Bungalows. We are a renovated Vintage Motel with lots of room for your vacation needs. Nestled among the sand dunes of Lake Michigan, a great spot for touring the wineries & antiquing. Bring your flip flops & sand buckets and collect the beach glass along the Lake Michigan Shore. There is access to 2 public beaches just 1 mile away in either direction plus 4 more in St. Joseph & 2 more in South Haven. This remodeled bungalow is located 15 minutes north of St. Joseph & 15 minutes south of South Haven, where you can find good food, live music/theater, unique shops, museums & art galleries, and of course BEACHES! Each town has its own lighthouse & boat-filled harbors, featuring individual charm & unique attractions ~ an experience you will not soon forget. Walk the singing sands of Lake Michigan's beaches, watch the ever-changing sunsets, celebrate the spectacular colors of autumn or snowmobile the Michigan trails. Whatever the season, the experience is always inspiring & delightful and a perfect getaway from the city.
*** NEW 2016 - 2nd unit available right next door to the Sand Dollar Flat!
We grew up here in SW Michigan. We love our community and wouldn't want to raise our family anywhere else.
We saw so much potential in this vintage motel (originally named the Big 10). We purchased it in 2009 and over the years we have enjoyed the rehabbing process. In 2010, we welcomed our first guests to The Sand Dollar Flat (Homeaway #294139). We continued the remodel & in 2016 we launched The Sand Dune Flat (Homeaway #4473315).
In the near future, we will complete the 3rd & final flat and continue to share our little corner of Michigan with travelers!
Cris purchased this bungalow in 2009

The property was clean and well organized for a small space. Great location it was close to everything- dining, wineries, beaches and shopping! The house had a nice backyard with a fire pit. Would stay here again it was great for our girls weekend!
The Sand Dollar Flat is a lovely, convenient, and charming place to spend time in St. Joseph/Grand Haven region. Lots to do and see the area and bungalow provides all the amenities of home. I've been there before and hope to go again in the future!
We were with my husband in this small house. It's nice, quite and relax place. It's close to lake and between St.Joseph and South Haven.
I'm highly recommending this place.
Our family of four stayed this August and just adored everything about this place. Perfectly located between St. Joe and South Haven, so much so you can easily visit and spend time in both. Super close to two beaches (we preferred Roadside Beach). The flat itself was so cute and very clean. It had everything we needed for a relaxing week away. Cris and Steve were wonderful. Cris sent thorough information before our stay and was great about providing additional info about the area. We noticed the first night that the DVD player was broken and notified them (not a big deal to have one or not but wanted them to know). Within about a day Steve came over and replaced it. You can tell they truly care about their guests and their stay. One of our little ones keeps asking if we are going back to the "vacation house." We will definitely look to stay at the Sand Dollar Flat again in the future. Thank you for the perfect place for a great family vacation!
My husband and I wanted to take a small vacation to celebrate our birthdays and have one last trip together before our little one arrives in October. This was the perfect fit for us. The home was equipped with everything and more in order to be comfortable for the week. We had plenty of time to relax and enjoy ourselves and there was so much to do within short driving distances. We spent some time in St. Joseph and in South Haven and we also enjoyed our evenings watching the sunset on Hagar Beach right up the road. We would definitely be willing to stay here again!
