About Maria Fenech

We grew up in Michigan and still live and work in Michigan. Mackinaw City has always been our family's favorite vacation destination in Michigan. We never tire of visiting Mackinaw City, Mackinaw Island and Northern Michigan.

Maria Fenech purchased this condo in 2001

Why Maria Fenech chose Mackinaw City

We were actually walking in the Labor Day Mackinac Bridge Walk and then spent the day on Mackinac Island. When taking the Mackinac Island ferry back to Mackinaw City we drove past the new condos being built at the Shores of Mackinaw 49701 in Sept 2001 and simply fell in love with this Luxury Condominium Complex located on the Shores of Lake Huron directly facing Mackinac Island and also a spectacular view of the Mackinaw Bridge. It doesn't get any better than this in Mackinaw City!

What makes this condo unique

Our condominium has a wonderful and informative conceirge service. Our condo is within walking distance of a heated swimming pool with a spectacular view of Lake Huron and Mackinac Island. Bonfires on the beach every evening during the summertime are the norm. Excellent view of the 4th of July fireworks from our beach every year. Golfing at the Mackinac Club is always enjoyable. We can walk to the Mackinac Island ferries, the lighthouse, beaches, Fort Michilamackinac & visit great restaurants and shops. We can drive to St. Ignace Casino, Tahquamenon Falls, Lex Cheneaux Islands, Sault St. Marie, Drummond Island and only an hour away from Petoskey's excellent shopping atomosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Maria,

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo....Your condo was very pleasant, quiet and comfortable. We enjoyed our time touring Mackinaw City, Mackinac Island, St. Ignace and Cheboygan. Especially Mackinaw Crossings, Mackinac Island and both forts (Colonial and Michilimackinac and Mackinaw itself) Hopefully in the near future we can make it back up here again.

p.s. The heated pool was awesome!!

Wonderful place to stay in Mackinaw City!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was great! We had a beautiful view of the lake and bridge. Everything was so clean and well maintained. Nice to have some quiet time and space after being on the island. Would definitely recommend the condo to others. On our next trip to Michigan, we will stay here again. Carol was very helpful and we had a wonderful stay.

My husband and I loved the property and location! It was so peaceful and location beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our condo because of its quiet location, clean, cheerful decor, and view of Lake Huron from our living room and bedroom. It is only 1 mile from Mackinaw City and ferry. The pool was clean and John, pool manager, was friendly and helpful. He recommended many places for us to visit. Carol, manager of the facility, was most attentive to our needs. Carol told us a must see was Pictured Rock National Lakeshore. Carol told us to take the Pictured Rock Cruise in Munising, Michigan. Carol advised us to buy tickets in advanced on line because it is so popular. Glad we did because the cruise was breathtaking.It was only 2 hours away and was well worth the trip. A must see also is a trip on the ferry to see Historic Mackinac Island. It was one of the most beautiful places we ever visited. No cars are allowed on the island, only carriage horses and bicycles. If we lived closer (we are from Philadelphia, Pa 13 hours drive away) I would consider buying a condo at the Shores of Mackenaw. This condo is great for families and couples. Children would love the pool and small beach. There is a bike trail across the street and restaurants are close by. We loved our stay and will recommended to our friends and family.

Best summer condo I've ever rented!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best summer condo I've ever rented! Perfectly situated in Mackinaw City, it was less than a five minute drive to the Mackinac city docks where you can take the ferry to Mackinac Island. The view from the condo was breathtaking. You can look out and see Lake Huron and also the Mackinaw City Bridge. The private pool and beach were very quiet and clean. The condo was quite spacious and perfect for the two of us. It had a large king size bed, a well-stocked kitchen, living room, and a one car garage. It was a wonderful getaway and I can't wait to rent it again!

Peaceful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo and would not hesitate to stay here again in the future. The Shores Condominium complex is a very beautiful property with lovely landscaping and a clean heated pool. We would never stay in a hotel again after finding this gem! Close to everything and yet it was quiet and peaceful and away from all the "traffic" of Mackinaw City. The condo itself was clean and cute and truly felt like our home away from home. There is everything you need and more in the kitchen. The king size bed was so comfortable and the washer and dryer were just added bonuses. I could go on and on about how great it is....on a cool night we even used the gas fireplace! How cool is that? The only thing that needs mentioning is the living room furniture. These chairs need to be replaced. For our small family of 3, the fold out double bed was just OK for our 10 y/o daughter. If you have older kids or more adults, you may be uncomfortable on these futons. They are nothing more than thin foam cushions that lay on the floor. You might want to consider bringing air mattresses if you plan on using anything other than the King size bed.

This condo was absolutely fabulous! It was our second year back to this complex. The management company is friendly and efficient, as well as very accessible. The housekeeping staff does an impeccable job, and it's the most peaceful, perfectly situated place to stay. Can't wait to get back next year!

Fantastic Location and Super Clean!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four stayed for a week and had a fabulous time! The pull-out chairs worked perfect for the kids. They really enjoyed the pool and looking for treasures on the beach. The location was perfect, we even visited the U.P. a couple of times. This place was a welcome home away from home the entire week!!!
