Traverse City house description
Ours is a simple, small beach house, located on the grounds of our family home (which means that we share the beach). West Grand Traverse Bay is twenty steps away from the front door - - and downtown Traverse City is a 15 minute walk down Front Street.
We rent it from Sunday-Sunday between mid-June and mid-October. Between October and mid-June, we rent it by the week, by the weekend, or by the month.
The summer weekly rental fee is $1000 (except during the Traverse City Film Festival), and we ask that $500 be paid at the time the reservation is made.
Between October and mid-June, the weekly fee is $750. The weekend fee is $500. The monthly fee is $1000.
We ask for 50% of the fee in advance. The balance is due on check-in.
The sunsets are out of this world - - and sunrises are pretty spectacular, too!
We are happy to discuss pets - - and it is paradise for children of all ages!

Love this beach house
Love this beach house
This is the 3rd year we have stayed in the Beach House and have had a wonderful time every year. This is a cottage with a fantastic view of the lake and within walking distance to downtown. The beach was very enjoyable with our own fire pit. We rode our bikes on the TART which is very close. The landlords are fabulous and very helpful with all questions. We found everything we needed in the kitchen.

Great location with views of the lake and nice enough beach - but that's it. Stay away. Property is very, very run down, dirty, cobweb covered and bug infested (especially under beds, in kitchen cabinets, and bathroom). While we expected to share beach with owners, we would have appreciated a heads up that they would be having large lawn/beach parties on two evenings during our stay - since we did not have curtains on all windows for privacy and it made the beach unusable by us. Here is just a short list of some of the deficiencies: no remote for the TV, broken window screens repaired with duct tape, not a single pot in kitchen with a fitting lid for cooking, promised gas grill was inoperable and filthy with no available cleaning tool, broken towel bar in bath that owners promised to fix but never did, missing lightbulbs from fixtures - the list could go on and on. The neglect of this property and the owners' disrespect for tenants is shameful. We had planned to stay 2 weeks but left after only one week as soon as we secured other accommodations for the remainder of our vacation.

Owner response: We appreciated this frank response - - and we've acted. We've cleaned every where, and will ramp up our inspection once the cleaner has finished. We married up the pots and their lids, and re-located them on their own shelf. We've replaced the gas grill entirely, and the new grill has a brush and other tools. The remote control for the television, the screen, and the towel bar are fixed. All light fixtures have bulbs, and spare light bulbs are in the cupboard. We do usually communicate well in advance about planned events, and as quickly as we can about the impromptu ones - - we will be especially vigilant, though, about this.
$1000/week in the summer; $750/week, $500/weekend, and $1000/month (Oct - mid Jun) A check for 50% of the total holds the reservation The remainder due on check-in
