About Robin Gardynik

Our family is all about water and this fit right in.

Why Robin Gardynik chose Traverse City

When we purchased this property we were sold when we walked on the beach and the sand squeeked beneath our feet.

Excellent place for family relaxation and adventure

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a weekend to attend a family wedding. What a great place to stay! We had 3 adult couples, and there was more than enough space for everyone without feeling crowded at all. The house has an amazing view with a great beach. Literally everything you need is provided - and the kitchen is especially well stocked. The house was very clean upon arrival. The owner is super easy to work with, and was very responsive when we had a couple of questions. The location also cannot be beat, it is a short drive to several restaurants, or you can be in downtown Traverse City in 15 minutes. Would definitely rent this place again.

Frequent TC visitors first time renters

We recently returned from a a week at this place, and it was fantastic! It was my wife and I with our four kids as well four other adults. There was plenty of room for everyone to stretch out and have their own privacy if needed. Coming from someone that cooks a lot, the kitchen was a nice surprise with top quality appliances and all the utensils and mixing bowls you would need. The kids and adults alike enjoyed several hours in the four kayaks that were included exploring the beautiful Bowers Harbor area of West Grand Traverse Bay. You're only a short drive to town, wineries, or in our case fishing. We would absolutely recommend this place to anyone considering a vacation to the top left of the mitten. Thanks for being so responsive on everything, and we look forward to seeing you again! - Ohio
