Michigan House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 9-11)

You’re invited to relax and enjoy all that Firefly Beach House has to offer. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac across the street from Fifth Avenue Beach, this quaint four bedroom two bath cottage is a mere 85 steps from the beautiful sands of Lake Michigan.

Furnished in soothing blue and white hues, Firefly Beach House combines the best of both worlds whether you are looking for a great place to unwind after a day at the beach; on the boat; the golf course; or skiing and snowmobiling. If getting out and about is more your style, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to shop and dine in the unique downtown galleries and establishments just a short distance away. You might also view the freighters from the lighthouse pier a half block stroll away.

We welcome children and dogs at Firefly Beach house. We do welcome our responsible pet friends for a nominal non-refundable dog fee. Leashed dogs are allowed on the beach and pier, and there is a children’s playground just across the street. Smoking is not permitted at Firefly Beach House.

Cute House - Needs some simple updates for the price

  • 3 of 5

This is a cute house with excellent location to the beach / Lake Michigan. Great fishing off the pier, snack stand at beach and lots of things to do in town, dining, outdoor stuff, etc.

We were a little disappointed at the following (Easily corrected) items.

House is not central air conditioned - there are only window A/C units in 2 of 4 bedrooms and window unit in kitchen. We had to buy two floor fans at Meijer - the fan in the living room was broken. There were no blinds on any of the windows - just sheers - no privacy. No storage space for clothes - no dressers - the closets were already filled with blankets, vacuum cleaners, etc. VERY TINY BEDROOMS AND CLOSETS - LOW CEILINGS in bedrooms. Only one shower - kind of difficult for groups of 6+. Only (1) television in living room and no internet - only access is thru beach WiFi.

The backyard and kitchen were perfect. Nice for bonfires, etc. Kitchen was equipped well. Washer and dryer are in basement - both work fine.We had a great week - spent most of our time outside. Just would have been nice to have the above items. No reason for no WiFi - I didnt do any work but it would have been nice for searching restaurants, activities, etc.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here a few times and just love it! It's the most perfect location. Kept our entire family entertained all week. From Grandparents, to teenagers, to young children. We all had a blast. Love the concession stand on the beach too, great food and great people that run it.

Nice house great for families.

  • 4 of 5

Nice old house, reasonable well maintained and nicely furnished. Close to the nice 5th ave beach.Only issue we had was with the WiFi, which comes from a municipal source (5th beach), which I was never able to connect. I highly recommend this property.
