Great Downtown Condo

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at this condo. Well maintained with all the furnishings we needed and a great location. Very nice and easy to work with. We would recommend this condo to everyone.

Another Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time renting this condo. I can't pass up the great location for the film festival.. Clean and comfortable, this condo has everything you need for a comfortable week. The garage comes in handy as well if you bring your bikes or kayaks. Highly recommend.

One warning, if you have more than one car as we did, you can't park out front on the street overnight, (even though it is not posted!) you could get a ticket. ( I did ).

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay to attend a family wedding in Traverse City, and this was a perfect location (within walking distance for the reception) and an absolutely beautiful condo. It is stocked with everything you could possibly want - dishes, towels, soaps, etc. We definitely enjoyed the comfort and had a relaxed stay at the condo. I would highly recommend this condo and location to anyone who wants to enjoy their time in Traverse City.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5

This unit was nicer than the pictures show. It is very clean and updated. We liked that there is an enclosed garage to put our car over night. There were more than enough appliances and kitchen utensils, dishes, glasses etc. We especially liked the location which was just a few block walk to the downtown with shops and restaurants. We had a wedding at the Opera House and it is a hard place to park a car. We were lucky enough to only have to walk a few blocks there and leave our car at the unit. There are a lot of stairs in this condo so I do not recommend it to anyone who has a hard time with going up and down stairs. You have to walk up the stairs from the garage to the main living area and then walk up a lot more stairs to the bedroom area. The whole condo is wall to wall carpeted so I don't recommend to anyone with carpet allergies. There is hand pump soap in all 3 bathrooms as well as dish soap in the kitchen but since this is not a hotel, I recommend that you bring your own shampoos and body soap. Each bedroom has it's own bathroom on the third floor and there is a 1/2 bath in the main living area near the kitchen. I believe the sofa in the living room had a pull out bed. This is a very comfortable place to stay. It is just like staying in someones home. We were able to make our own breakfast every morning which was so much more convenient than having to go out and look for a restaurant. I think our main complaint was some of the noise outside from the busy streets nearby. Seems like there were always people outside talking. The owner was easy to deal with and returned all calls and emails.

Great location, space and price

  • 5 of 5

After staying with our two girls in a hotel in Traverse City, we knew we needed another option to enjoy our family vacation. This property was very clean and had a great layout. The property was very modern and up-to-date. It was very close to downtown for eating and shopping.

We have rented other condos in the past and it was nice that this one provided soap, toilet paper, paper towels, etc. We have had experiences where we brought our own supplies.

I would not hesitate to recommend this place to any friends and family. When we come to TC again, this is where we are staying. It was nice to have space and not trip over each other, like we have in the past in a hotel.
