About the property

4 bedroom, 3 bath 2-floor Lake Front condo

Welcome to The Homestead and beautiful South Beach with steps to white sand beaches and gorgeous freshwater Lake Michigan. Come enjoy your vacation in a spacious home full of light, comfort, and relaxation. Guests from all backgrounds are welcome in this home. Celebrate life's milestones with families, or groups of friends, all year round!Please make our vacation home your home during your stay.

We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do, all year round. We are passionate about providing an outstanding stay and look forward to your inquiry.

It is a 2-story spacious upscale condo with a relaxing, cozy vibe, and a short boardwalk to the beach. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths upstairs. Downstairs has 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, (1) twin bunk bed and addt'l (2) loose twin mattresses. Comfortable sheets, a crazy mix of bath towels, and beach towels are provided.

Sliding doors out to deck and beach downstairs. Outdoor deck upstairs and down. Gas grill is located downstairs on lower deck. There is a full working wood fireplace (wood is stocked in season in the outside shed). Full kitchen with stove, 27" wall oven, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, espresso machine, and fully stocked pots, pans, and utensils for cooking. Many condiments and spices are available for cooking. You are welcome to use and replenish. Two open living rooms upstairs and down. TV both upstairs and down. Great movie collection. Strong wifi.

You have full access to our entire place. This home does NOT include membership to the Homestead Beach Club in the summer. However, there are tennis courts, bike trails, and plenty of golf courses nearby. Bikes, canoes, and kayaks are all available for rent in town. In the winter, nearby Crystal Mountain or The Homestead Resort ski hill are available for downhill skiing, and snowboarding. Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are also available at the Homestead.

South Beach is part of the Homestead Resort, and the last beachfront complex. That means plenty of beach for you and rarely feels crowded! The Homestead is a top destination spot for vacations, getaways, weddings, reunions and meetings, spa and salon services, and year-round recreation. It is located within the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in scenic northern Michigan, the area chosen by viewer's of ABC's Good Morning America as the Most Beautiful Place in America. Four Michigan seasons bring their own distinct beauty and activities that you can enjoy year-round. The town of Glen Arbor, full of adorable shops and restaurants, is a short drive, walk or bike ride (1 mile) away. Sleeping Bear dune climb, a must, is also just outside of town. This home is equipped with beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, and inner tubes.

There is a full parking lot for South Beach Building #3. ONE parking space is available for this condo - #23. Other spaces are designated by a 'V' for visitor. We ask that you limit your cars please. Boats and jet skis are welcome with a ramp into Lake MI in the town of Glen Arbor. You can also inquire about that at Big or Little Glen Lake.

Other things to note:

Like many other condos in South Beach, with steps to Lake MI, this home is NOT air conditioned in the summer. This home is also smoking free home. A fine of $500 will be assessed and yes, we are not kidding. No pets please. In summer season, bonfires are allowed in designated fire pits on the beach only. Open bonfires or fireworks are not allowed and you will be fined $300. The condo complex is serious about that, as we've had building fires (buildings are constructed of all wood) over the years. Thank you for understanding.

A great family place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at your condo. It has lots of space, a very functional kitchen, comfortable beds, and lots of towels, chairs and floats for the lake. Attractive and clean - we would definitely recommend it to others and hope to return.

Fantastic view and ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Great property with plenty of beds and bathrooms, and a huge door wall and windows facing the water which seemed wider than the previous Homestead condo we rented. Great extras like beach chairs, umbrella, floats, etc. Nice to have all kitchen utensils and pots, etc when some rentals do not. Perfect location, perfect beach. Not much else to say, it's great.

Wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Lots of beach toys and equipment....much appreciated! Beautiful sunsets! Great spaces for a family!

Our only criticism is you need a larger hot water heater.

Owner's Response: Hi Jill, We were so happy to have you up! Thank you for the nice words and the feedback. We certainly can take under advisement a larger hot water heater. Best, Carrie

Beautiful and very clean

  • 5 of 5

The condo was wonderful and very clean. It had all the essentials we could possibly need. It rained the entire time we were there and we still had a great time. Super close to the beach. Just a few issues...there were TONS of bugs (from the weather), there wasnt much light in the condo (just lamps and it was a little hard to see), the fridge door doesnt stay open (it swings closed while you are standing there), and the bed mattresses are very soft! But overall it was wonderful - tons of space and we loved the chalk board wall and puzzle board. Plus gorgeous views of the lake and both islands. You could tell the owners took a lot of pride in making their guests feel comfortable.

Owner's Response: Hi Gina, Thank you for your kind words, and your feedback. It's really helpful for us as we try to continuously improve for all future guests. Ugh, the bugs!! Mother nature at its finest. Thankfully in May, they appear for a very short few days. Some years we have them, and some years we don't. Thank you for your patience and good nature regarding that. Best, Carrie
