About Tony Sindt

Born and raised in Iowa -- found my way to Chicago after college -- and then found a little piece of 'paradise' in Michigan a short time later. Engaged on the Bluff, Married on the beach and now we have two little boys who absolutely love everything there is to our 'Michigan home'. With a 7 year old with an extra chromosome and his baby brother who just turned 3, our lives seem to speed by way too fast. It doesn't happen as much as it should, but a quick trip to Michigan puts everything in perspective and slows things down!! We love having the opportunity to share this with others and hear their stories along the way. So, if you get the chance, please be our guest!! And enjoy 'Another Day in Paradise' with us in 2017...

Tony Sindt purchased this condo in 2006

Why Tony Sindt chose Southwest Michigan

Once you get to the beach the answer is obvious. But to have something that is this private and undeveloped yet so close to all the bustling tourist towns and big cities is nothing but amazing. It was a lottery pick and we were lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time. The grounds are a little primitive, but the condos are incredible. And the beach..... well you just gotta see that for yourself. Then try realizing this is the midwest... and not an island!!! Plus, if you get to see a sunset, it will be something you will never forget....

What makes this condo unique

Private Beach is our biggest asset. We have PGA worthy golf courses, 5 start restaurants, brewery's, some of the country's best wineries, tons of Antique shops, and numerous quaint, festive towns that are so very close. You can enjoy any of this, or sit back by the beach and roast some marshmallows with friends and family as the sun sets. Did we mention the BEACH!! :) Plus, new heater in the pool for our mid June - Sept rentals!! That has nothing on the beach, but just adds to the 'to do' list for your stay..... The choices are all yours -- and there's never a wrong one!! Come see for yourself... make the short trip to find your "Paradise"...

A hidden treasure. Great value.

  • 5 of 5

It is only 750 sq feet, but the space was adequate to fit our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids (6,8)). The outside siding needs some work, but the inside was great! The bedroom is very large. Although the kids were in the same room (bunk bed), we didn't feel like they were on top of us.

The lake is so close! It was just a quick 2 minute walk or a ride in the golf cart down the path. When the lake was a little too cold, we went to the pool. It isn't the biggest pool in the world, but it was just fine for our family...and it is heated!

Great location. 10 minutes away from St. Joe's and 20 minutes away from South Haven. We visited both and toured the small city while checking out the 2 lighthouses.

At night, we used the fire pit. If you need more wood, there is a Lowes about 10 minutes away.

We would definitely recommend this condo!!! We will most likely go back. Tony responded back to all my questions quickly.

This was a first time to Lake Michigan, and it won't be our last!!!

Perfect Wedding Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our wedding weekend and it was perfect! We did our first look out on the bluff behind the house and took some pics on the beach! We loved the house and Tony is a great host! Pics don't do the place justice - It's gorgeous and affordable!

Best family vacation in years!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about this property. We've stayed at a lot of places and this was, hands down, the best place for beach access. The hill is steep, very steep but the beach is so beautiful AND CLEAN!! The house size was perfect for a family of 4.

Another day in paradise indeed!

  • 5 of 5

Overall, we could not have asked for a more wonderful vacation spot. This condo is located minutes away from restaurants, wineries and the downtown St. Joseph area. It is the perfect condo for a few people or a small family. Being pet friendly was great, and allowed us to bring our 2 dogs to enjoy the beach as well. The condo is situated on a bluff that is mere steps away and when we walked up the first time, the view took our breath away! The beach is located down a short (but steep) path that takes you down the bluff. Definitely recommend renting the golf cart as well :) The beach was beautiful, and while we were there, very private. The condo itself was very clean, and had all the comforts of home (i.e. wi-fi, cable). We will definitely be returning!

Perfect place for me, my husband and our two 100 pound puppies! Decor/room sizes were comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well stocked, home, perfect for the 2 of us and our fur babies. And plenty of room for 20 Michigan relatives to join us for a Sunday afternoon barbecue on the deck and patio. The use of the golf cart was a perfect perk, a cousin that used to live on the beach, was able to feel the sand for the first time in 15 years! And it was a must for me, after breaking my femur twice in 4 months. The ability to load up a day's worth of beach stuff, food, and drinks and make it from the house to the water in 2 minutes and one trip was so convenient! I know we were there in the off season, but the whole place was ours alone for almost our whole stay! Being able to look down the beach in both directions for miles and not see another person was something that rarely happens anywhere in the US, and we enjoyed that kind of serenity for 4 glorious days. The weather could not have been better and the sunsets were breathtaking every night. Tony was a great landlord, and the idea that we could bring our whole family on their first vacation ( 2 - 1 year old mountain dogs) was a benefit I had all but given up, until we found Tony's place. I would recommend this to a family with a couple of young children, or a few friends who don't mind sharing a bedroom, a two seniors who want to feel like kids again! I hope to return next fall, a mid September vacation was perfect for us! The only request I would have, is to see if the biting flies might find another place to hangout next year!!!! Tony, do you think you could manage that???? :)
