Location, location and lots of sand! Welcome to Sunny Slope Beach House. Located right on Lake Huron with 80 feet of soft sugar sand beach, on a quiet street off of US 23 centrally located in the heart of Oscoda, Mi. You get the best of both worlds with this rental; on the waterfront, lots of sand for the kids to play, volleyball, tether ball, relax and you can walk to just about everything - restaurants, bars, ice cream shops, movie theater, putt putt golf, bowling, the city park with free concerts in the park and so much more.

We have Air Conditioning. Great for those hot days and to cool the house off in the evening.

If you like Lake Michigan's sandy beach, you will Love Oscoda and Lake Huron! Our beach house property is flat, no stairs to climb down to get to the beach. It's all sand, no brush or path to walk through. Paradise right out the door onto the deck and beach! Large wrap around deck with patio table/chairs for dining.

Very close to the Ausable River for canoeing or kayaking. Take a River Queen Cruise too.

The Gailes at Lakewood Shores - One of the best golf courses in Michigan, listed in the top 10, is just a few miles away. If you enjoy golfing this is one you don't want to miss out.

We are also only 15 minutes from East Tawas and all they have to offer as well. Enjoy both cities, one in walking distance and one a short drive.

This vacation home is tastefully decorated in neutral tones. Many dining options; inside at the long counter and attached table or dine outdoors on the deck. In the evening, light a fire in the firepit outside or in the fall enjoy the gas fireplace while watching a show or movie on the flat screen tv. Kids and adults can enjoy air hockey and many board game options. Just in case, there is a wii game system as well.

Master bedroom has a kingsize bed, bay window and doorwall. Master bedroom faces the water. Guest rooms include a queen size bed in one room and 2 twin bunk beds (total of 4 beds). There is a full bath on the main floor and a full bath upstairs between the 2 bedrooms. Washer and dryer included in case you need to do a quick load.

The owners have rented through other places in the past and have tried to anticipate the needs of renters. Many extras are provided to make your vacation a little smoother.

If there is something you don't see, please don't hesitate to ask any questions.

We hope you will enjoy spending your vacation time or a nice long weekend at sunny slope beach house.

About Jacqui Gretzinger

This beach house is our dream come true. We searched for several years every summer until we found what we were looking for. We have renovated it to give it more of a 'beachy' vacation feel. We hope our guests will enjoy it and especially take good care of it.

Jacqui Gretzinger purchased this House in 2011

Why Jacqui Gretzinger chose Oscoda Township

It's a great location right in town and yet still very private, lots of soft sand, walking distance to ice cream shops, restaurants, the Oscoda Beach Park and so much more.

                                                          Amazing beach!

                                                          Craig H.

                                                          We could not have been more thrilled with out trip to Sunny Slope. The house was everything we needed plus much more. It was clean, welcoming and the perfect size for our family of 5, with space to provide plenty of separation for our two small nappers. The location was perfect. We were within walking distance of the downtown area and pier but the house was far enough off of the beaten path to feel very private and secluded. Jacqui went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we could possibly need for our trip. She was an extraordinary hostess, down to even making sure there was baby shampoo in the bathroom for us. She truly made us feel like the home was set up just for us. In addition, she was incredibly helpful in talking through issues that pertained to having an active two year old on a beach front property. Jacqui was very easy to reach and the one non-urgent question that I e-mailed to her during or vacation was responded to with a phone call within minutes of my sending the e-mail.

                                                          The absolute best thing about Sunny Slope, however, has to be the AMAZING beach front. I have never seen a lake house with such a gorgeous and spacious beach. Jacqui made sure we had a list of current events and activities around town, but to be honest, we really just wanted to wake up and spend every day outside in the sand. The pictures simply do not do the beach justice. There was so much space between the house and the water that even being with 2 small children we were able to enjoy the beach rather than constantly worry about someone going in the water unsupervised. It was just perfect. Like everything else, the beach was stocked with everything we could have needed. Plenty of seating, picnic tables, a grill, fire pit, lawn chairs, volley ball net, sand toys for the kids, outdoor shower and too many other things to list. We can't wait to go back!

                                                          A Beach Dream

                                                          Laura M.

                                                          Sunny Slope was everything we could have asked for and more! Jacqui thought of everything needed to make the stay relaxing and comfortable. We cooked most of our meals and found the kitchen to be overstocked with cookware necessities. We traveled with our three boys (six, three, three months) and they loved the amenities as well! The beach was well combed, beautiful sand, and right outside the door. The views (sunrise AND sunset) are stunning. The campfire pit was wonderful for making smores and family memories. Sunny Slope was clean, well maintained, and set the stage for quality bonding and family memories. We will definitely stay at Sunny Slope for any future travels to Oscoda.

                                                          Amazing Rental!!!!!!!!!!!

                                                          Craig B.

                                                          I have rented other properties but by far this was the best on yet. First of all the description of the property was very accurate and it was just beautiful. Large kitchen, central air, awesome beds, great location within walking distance of downtown, did I mention the beach??? My kids, four of them, had a ball. Lots and lots of sand and very quiet. I will be going back next year!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh and the owners provided excellent service and when I had a question they called me back right away. Great Place!

                                                          Beautiful Beach Home on Beautiful Lake Huron Beach

                                                          crsm1 m.

                                                          We just spent a week at Jacqui's beautiful vacation home on the beach of Lake Huron!

                                                          My family and I just loved this beach house and the lake view is fantastic. The house is nicely decorated, clean, well maintained and you feel like you found a piece of paradise on a big sandy beach that is all yours.

                                                          We sat in the sunroom many evenings playing games, sat on the deck in the morning with our coffee and spent our days sitting and walking the beach. We also enjoyed catching up around the fire pit . We took a cruise on the Ausable River Queen, went to the local farmers market, and ate out at many of the local restaurants that were very good.

                                                          We will definitely rent again. Jacqui was a great host and very good to work with. She made sure our stay was perfect! I would recommend this house to anyone who loves the beach and is looking for paradise!

                                                          Thanks Jacqui! We had a memorable fantastic week! The Martin Family

                                                          Paradise on Lake Huron!

                                                          Sunny Slope was absolutely everything we could have dreamed of in a vacation rental! Jacqui was a total pleasure to speak with throughout the entire planning process. She was very accommodating and provided a lot of information and answers to questions so we felt prepared for our weeklong stay. However, none of that prepared us for the beauty and perfection of the home and beach when we arrived! The view of the lake when we walked through the front door was breathtaking! The home was spotless, kid-friendly, spacious, and very practical for our vacation needs (the outdoor shower, huge deck, and sunroom were great features). The beach could not have been more gorgeous!! I sometimes worry that the pictures posted on rental sites aren't true to the actual property now. They totally were. None of us could believe that we weren't on the white sand beaches of Lake Michigan! The stretch of beach is perfect for taking long walks and the sandy-bottom lake is ideal for swimming and for small kids (shallow for awhile with no sudden drop-offs).

                                                          The close proximity to town allowed us to walk to the park for an outdoor concert and to play on the playground, walk to an ice cream shop, and even take a short drive to the state park in Tawas, rafting on the Au Sable, and shopping in downtown East Tawas.

                                                          I highly recommend this property! If you are lucky enough to reserve time here, you will not be disappointed!

                                                          We've stayed a week here now four summers and will be five. The house has every possible convenience included and is kept in fantastic condition. The beach is absolutely gorgeous and spacious, and we always enjoy playing volleyball and lighting bonfires in the fire pit. Although so close to downtown Oscoda, this place could not feel more isolated. Can't imagine going anywhere else.
