Traverse City Condo Rental Photos and Description

Beautifully furnished two bedroom condo, just a block from the beach

Quiet, nicely appointed condo with two bedrooms and two and a half baths, is located on the second and third floors of the Bay Park condominium complex at 100 Hope Street in the heart of Traverse City. Just a short walk to the beaches, parks and hiking trails, and all of the fine shops, restaurants, and nightlife that Traverse City has to offer. The West Bay's beautiful sandy beaches are literally across the street. The condo is situated directly on the TART Trail system. ALL BRAND NEW APPLIANCES, CARPET and PAINT!

A dozen renowned wineries, vineyards, orchards and magnificent scenery are less than thirty minutes away, as are casinos, the Old Mission and Leelanau Peninsula. The famous Sleeping Bear Dunes and the picturesque fishing towns on Lake Michigan make a great half-day trip.

Don't miss the summer fun, the festivals, the fall colors, golf courses, and the Northern Michigan way of life!

Guestbook comments from the owner


I can't thank you enough for renting out your beautiful condo to us. It was perfect in so many ways. We felt so at home. Our granddaughter loved the playground, and we appreciated the proximity to downtown and all the activity there. It was so spacious, clean and quiet. The décor was amazing. I know that staying there contributed greatly to the memorable week we had. Thank you again.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this condo. There was plenty of space, everything was very clean, and we were so thankful for the thoughtful touches of basic toiletries. We were able to walk everywhere downtown TC very easily. We have previously lived in TC, so we knew all of the places we wanted to visit, but it was so much fun to be able to walk to them! The farmer's market, Clinch Park, The Little Fleet, and F&M park are all super close and were great for our three kids. The owner was very easy to get a hold of and answered all questions quickly. I would definitely recommend renting this condo for a great home base to check out the area.

Great condo, great location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The condo is located within an easy walk to downtown or the beach and a short drive to the other attractions. It has 2 large bedrooms and 2 baths upstairs. Beds are comfortable. First floor living area is good sized and well laid out with a 1/2 bath. All is in excellent shape and clean. Kathryn and Lisa (property manager) were both very easy to get along with and helpful. They even left enough tea and coffee for our whole stay.

We would definitely stay here again if returning to Traverse City.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of four! It was super clean, quiet, comfortable and beautiful. We absolutely loved our stay here and would recommend it to anyone. We walked every night into downtown for dinner and shopping. The pictures don't do it justice, it is large and very well kept. Stay here!
