About Kati

My husband and I moved to the Traverse City area about 10 years ago and fell in love with it immediately. I'm a native of Germany and my husband is from the Western end of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. We decided to purchase this condo because of it's perfect location on East Bay. What a perfect place to enjoy everything that Traverse City and the surrounding area has to offer.

Kati purchased this condo in 2013

Absolutely Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kati's condo for 3 nights over Memorial weekend and it was perfect. The location was great, just outside of the hustle and bustle of TC, but still just a few minutes drive into town. When we opened the door, we were welcomed with a bottle of wine, some dark chocolates, and a written welcome note on the chalkboard which we thought was a very nice first impression. The condo looked exactly as the pictures did with a very comfortable couch, chair and living area and one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need, but as previous reviews stated, it is not equipped for preparing a huge meal, but hey, you are on vacation so how much cooking are you really going to do? We also loved the deck which was accessible from both the living room and the bedroom. It was so peaceful and relaxing sitting out there listening to the birds and the stream which was just a few feet away. The condo sat at the end of one of the buildings which was nice because the large windows and the vaulted ceilings added a lot of extra natural light. The beach area had a lot to do for both adults and kids. There were plenty of lounge chairs, a hot tub, a pool and some games. One other thing that set our stay apart from other places that we have rented is the ease of accessibility of Kati whether via text or phone, she even called us a few minutes after check-in to make sure everything was okay with the condo and also called us once we left to make sure that our stay in TC was enjoyable. Our whole experience was perfect, from the condo, the location, the hospitality and we will definitely stay here again. I would recommend staying here next time you plan a trip to TC.

A really great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The owner was very friendly, and accommodating ahead of our stay. The condo was in perfect condition, and well laid out. Being at the end of its building, with no unit above, it was very quiet. The location was very convenient, easy to get to from any direction, and close enough to Traverse City.

There were two flat screen TV's, both with full HD service (and a good selection of channels) - a large one in the living room, and a smaller one in the bedroom.

Plenty of closet and drawer space in the bedroom, and also a large closet breast three front door.

Great shower - plenty of hot water - and 2 sinks, one inside the bathroom and one just outside, with a large countertop, mirror, and again plenty is storage space.

We didn't use the beach or pool, on account of the season (February), but the beach looked very nice.

Plenty of parking, and the lot was cleared of snow in a timely manner.

Our only complaint was the lack of a conventional oven, but that turned out not to be an issue.

We'll definitely come back here, if we have the opportunity.

Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5

The place and hostess are a 5 out of 5. The décor is cute and up to date. The kitchen dishes and small appliances where the best variety and large quality of any condo I have visited. The mattress was a cloud… it added to the greatness of the stay. The 2 bathroom sinks made getting ready in the morning…very convenience. The condo was an end unit so lots of windows to enjoy the wide creek and views of nature. Another important factor when I book is the pleasantness of the owner….she was lovely. There was welcome treats on arrival…so fun. The complex is very close to the new large Meijer grocery store. My husband and I will be happy to return to the condo.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

Our weekend here was great, loved the location overlooking a creek. We chose the condo among others available, for its nice furnishings and layout. Everything was in place, nothing we needed wasn't already provided. Kati was sweet to leave us a bottle of wine.

Beautiful, quiet condo

  • 5 of 5

My mom and were looking for a quick weekend getaway to do some shopping, eating and wine drinking! I found the Shores on Homeaway and we couldn't be happier with our stay. The condo was clean, beautifully decorated, and fully stocked with everything we could need for our weekend. A bottle of wine and chocolate were even waiting for us when we arrived. Kati was a great host and checked in with us before, during, and after our stay to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. The condo was tucked away in a "woodsy" setting and the patio overlooked a stream. We enjoyed the quiet setting while still being only a few minutes away from all of Traverse City's amenities. Would definitely recommend and would love to visit again soon!

Quiet retreat

  • 5 of 5

The condo was located away from any noise and traffic. We could quickly go into Traverse City and also further north to Mackinac. The owner surprised us with a little welcoming gift and was easy to communicate with while there if we had any questions, which we didn't. Instructions left and travel brochures supplied all the needed information. The place was comfortable and the bed offered a good nights sleep. We would definiately recommend this property to others.
