About The Owner

Hi! I'm Maro, and this is my childhood home. I have countless happy memories with friends and family in Charlevoix and in our home, so as you can imagine, it holds a special place in my heart. The only thing that gives me as great of pleasure as spending time here myself, is knowing other families are creating their own lifelong memories here.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were guests during Apple Fest. Downtown Charlevoix was booming! The home is perfectly situated and nicely appointed. We had many local friends and family come to visit us during our stay and many remembered this home and the family who own it. You can't go wrong with this place! Maro is wonderful to work with, You will have a very nice stay!

What a gem and location!!!

  • 5 of 5

The home was perfect! Large comfortable porch to enjoy morning, noon and night. The home is charming! The location to downtown Charlevoix was a block away and right across the street is "Sunset" time over Lake Michigan. I recommend this home to everyone, you will not be disappointed. The owner of the home, is extremely easy to work with. My family will be back next summer to this location.

Perfect "Northside" Charm and Location

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of 3 generations. This home is the quintessential style home of the "Northside" of Charlevoix. The house is large while still retaining a cottage feel to it. It only takes a few minutes to walk downtown, or across the street to jump in Lake Michigan. Enjoy a cup of coffee on the porch in the morning, and drinks and dinner on it in the evening. We had 3 kids with us and they loved some of the musical instruments scattered about and they all got to share one room thanks to the layout. We will be returning, and the owner is super to work with!!

Perfect Charlevoix home for large family

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the house, We have been vacationing in Charlevoix for 8 years and this is our favorite rental to date. The house is beautiful and is the perfect location, walking distance to everything. We enjoyed sitting on the wrap around front porch every morning to start our day. Having two full size refrigerators and a large yard is a plus too. Looking forward to next year already!

A Vacation Rental to Remember

  • 5 of 5

We had three families staying at this beautiful home in Charlevoix. The accommodations were great and we lacked for nothing. It was nice to go on vacation and not have to bring paper products, towels, sheets etc. Anything we needed was made available. I was in my glory with all of the wood trim and wooden floors. It brought back childhood memories. One of our favorites was the wrap around porch. We sat at different locations pending the time of day and where the breeze was coming from. Being that we were only a few blocks from town gave us no need to drive but to walk most of the time. We also enjoyed the concerts in the park and the farmers market. There was plenty to do and see and not have to travel far. Maro was a pleasure to work with. Our family back home was very jealous of our stay. We definitely will be renting this home again!

Perfect Michigan Summer Rental

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely beautiful! The porch was amazing - such a great place to sit and read, people watch, eat dinner. The house had everything we could have needed and was a perfect match for our entire family (4 couple, plus a one year old). The location was very convenient, just a short walk to downtown and the beautiful beaches. A nice place to stay to explore Charlevoix and the surrounding area. Maro was a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend this house and hope to stay again in the near future!
