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.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Not ever been to Traverse City, I really didn't know where to stay. It's like throwing a dart at a board. Luckily, I did my due diligence and hit the jackpot. The condo was everything I wanted it to be. Nicely furnished and fully stocked with everything you would need. Comfy beds. Open concept living would be perfect for 4-6 people easily. It has a great deck with a view of the lake which is just across the street. Only 3-4 blocks and you are in "the heart of it all", Front Street with all the shopping and restaurants. I didn't realize that I planned this trip just when the National Cherry Festival was starting. What a great surprise. Even greater was to watch the amazing Thunderbirds practicing for two days leading up to the festival. I hit the jackpot again! I highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Hi Ron: We are so pleased your search brought you to our condo. Your review was awesome and much appreciated. Although the air show is only 2 days, they practice for 2 more so a bonus!! We would love to have you back if you decide to visit Traverse City again. Happy 4th! Valerie

Outstanding Condo!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at Traverse City we were extremely happy to open the door to this immaculate condo! We absolutely loved it! It has all the amenities of home and more! All top of the line appliances and the cabinets were stocked with everything you need to cook breakfast, lunch, or dinner ! This condo is about a 5 minute walk to Front St which offers endless shops and restaurants ! We also enjoyed the short walk across the street to Sunset Park and took in spectacular sunsets ! If you enjoy biking , which we do, the trails are literally right outside the parking lot ! We rode from Traverse City to Suttons bay and back one day - breathtaking !

The owner Val was VERY attentive to any questions we had during our stay ! We highly recommend this condo for a fabulous vacation retreat!

This condo is a 5 minute walk to downtown Traverse City with all it has to offer including restaurants, theatre, symphony, shops and many outdoor activities including water sports (boating, jet skiing, sailing, fishing) and world class golf courses just a short drive away. Concerts are held at Clinch Park only a few minutes walk from the condo. Clinch Park is also the location of a full-service marina for boating enthusiasts.

The area is perfect for families with F&M Park and Sunset Park within a few steps. These parks provide picnic areas and numerous grills for everyone's use. There is also a large play structure at F&M Park and a skating rink during the winter. During the National Cherry Festival, many events are held here. You can also bike on the TART Trail which has over 10 miles of trails.

For Senior Guests, the Traverse City Senior Center is right across the street and offers a full slate of activities for seniors to enjoy. Beside the Senior Center is the Great Lakes Maritime Academy and the Hagerty Center, part of Northwest Michigan College, which hosts many weddings and corporate events.

This downtown location allows you to leave the car behind as you enjoy the National Cherry Festival, The Traverse City Film Festival, Art Fairs, Bayshore Marathon, The Ice Man Race, many other Culinary Festivals, fireworks and parades. This year you will get a front row seat to the Blue Angels as they visit Traverse City for the Cherry Festival.

The Turtle Creek Casino is only 20 minutes away. For those looking for a day-trip, the Sleeping Bear Dunes are only 30 minutes away where you can stop in at Fishtown in Leland and Sutton's Bay on the way back to Traverse City.

For wine-lovers, this area offers over 20 wineries that are open year-round on both the Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsulas. Take a short side-trip to the Lighthouse near the top of Old Mission Peninsula. These areas are also fantastic for cycling outings.

For the guest who prefers home craft beers, Traverse City has become a Brew Pub Destination. Traverse City's extensive selection of outstanding restaurants has made the City a Top Ten Foodie Destination.

Winter sports enthusiasts won't be disappointed as snowmobile trails and ski areas are nearby.
