About Valerie Banducci

We are new owners of this condo as of June 1, 2014. Our family moved to Traverse City 18 years ago and we have never looked back. We love all that Traverse City has to offer and look forward to sharing it with guests & friends. We look forward to providing our guests with a clean comfortable accommodation that feels like home. We will be available to answer any questions and provide information to help make your stay a memorable one.

Our family also has a rental property in Indian Shores, Florida and we invite you to check out our listing at VRBO Listing #378730 to read reviews from our guests to make you feel more comfortable in your decision to stay with us.

Valerie Banducci purchased this condo in 2014

Why Valerie Banducci chose Northwest

We love the fantastic location of this condo just steps from downtown. As a family that loves to be near the water, this 2 floor end unit with all windows with views of Sunset Park & Beach and West Grand Traverse Bay helped make our decision easy. We also loved the huge master bedroom as we knew it would be so comfortable for all our guests.

What makes this condo unique

We also love being just steps from such a beautiful downtown and waterfront in Traverse City. Every saturday morning you can walk the farmer's market and enjoy a meal or shopping on Front Street. The parks so close by also offer lovely green spaces for picnics.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The 4 of us had a wonderful stay in your Traverse City Condo. This was our

first time using VRBO and, based on our experience, we will certainly use

it again. We wanted more than a hotel room, we wanted a common area where

we could talk....your condo was a perfect fit for our needs.

Location, Nicely Appointed and Responsive Owner

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay in this well appointed condo. Easy walk to town, neat as a pin, clean as a whistle! The owner is a wonderful communicator and takes pride in creating a good experience and comfortable "away from home" stay. We were there for a week for our son's wedding and this unit fit the bill as we could walk to the wedding venue (a home on Peninsula). Access was easy, parking was easy... We could not have been happier with our accommodations . Thank you for a great stay!

#8 Hope Stree was neat, clean, convenient, and fit all our needs for the family.

  • 5 of 5

Walking through the door we knew that our needs for comfort and convenience had been met! Great spot to walk or ride to the neighboring beaches and into town for shopping and dining. The traffic on Front Street wasn't a concern for us, because we knew the area and were looking for that perfect location. Lovely Condo with nice decorative touches. The bedrooms and baths were perfect for 5-6 adults. The kitchen had every dish, cup, utensil, pots and pans for whatever you may need. But, since this was a vacation, we took advantage of all the great eateries in beautiful Traverse City. I would recommend #8 to everyone!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We were pleased with our stay at this condo. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The extra space in the master bedroom worked very well for a pack n play. The location was perfect. We walked to restaurants, the beach, and downtown shopping. There is a park behind the condos that was a favorite of our granddaughter. We would definitely stay there again.

The condo was very noisy all the time- micro wave didn't work - DVR on and off working - Not as well

  • 2 of 5

Needs some updating- and not as nice as we thought-

Owner's Response: We are disappointed to hear this guest's review as they never contacted us during their stay to let us know there were any issues. We ask each guest to let us know if they have any questions or concerns. If they would have contacted us, we would have taken care of the this immediately and ensure that all was working properly. The microwave has been replaced by a new one and confirm that the cable service is working properly.
