Southwest Michigan Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom (Queen & Twin beds), + Sofa Sleeper in Living Room, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

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. Access to 2 public beaches just 1 mile away in either direction plus 4 more in St. Joseph. This newly remodeled bungalow is located 15 minutes south to St. Joseph & 15 minutes north to 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 beach, 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. A perfect getaway from the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time at your place this weekend. We were close to everything we wanted to do. Especially the beaches, which our 2 boys couldn't get enough of! Thanks again!!

Quaint & Relaxing

  • 4 of 5

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!

Clean, cute and quaint!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful Spring time getaway for my birthday at The Sand Dollar Flat, and would stay again. The property was perfect for the two of us, it was very clean and cutely decorated with lots of little details provided, such as board games, yard games, dvds, and books. Nice outdoor table and chairs area, and they did a good job to help make it feel private. We loved the roadside park beach that was just a mile up the road...paradise and super convenient. We felt that The Hagar Park wasn't as nice, didn't have the feel of a beautiful beach paradise that roadside did. We will say that it did take us a moment to locate the property, for we did not expect it to be located where it was, a picture of what the property looks like outside would have been helpful.

Comfortable and conveniently located

  • 4 of 5

This unit was comfortable for lounging on the sofa, or playing a game at the kitchen table. We appreciated the beach-themed contemporary decor. It is also very conveniently located near Hwy 196 so it was easy to get to South Haven and St Joseph.
