About the property

Wonderful family home just steps from private beach on Lake Michigan. This house was thoughtfully built and furnished for a large family ~ or two ~ to relax in comfort and enjoy all Grand Beach has to offer. Separate family rooms on both levels and two large dining areas allow plenty of space for meals, games or conversations around the brick fireplace. The second floor has 3 good sized knotty pine bedrooms, and a large sleeping porch ( a favorite place for any child who has slept there ) and 2 brand new ceramic tile bathrooms with skylights. As well as a private outdoor shower with changing room. The kitchen is good sized and thoughtfully stocked with everything your family will need to create meals to enjoy either inside or on our stone patio. A brand new half bath and laundry room are also on the first floor.

Good sized front and back yards for badminton, bocci, or croquet. Or lounge on the hammock under the trees. Parking for 6-7 cars.

We are 4 houses from a beautiful private beach on Lake Michigan, walking distance to Grand Beach Golf Course, a basketball court, tennis courts and playground.

About Liz

We had rented in Grand Beach for many years and finally took the plunge in 2011.

We enjoy using our cottage during the summer, but many kids activities keep us in Chicago so we decided to rent it out for a few weeks every summer.

Liz purchased this house in 2011

Why Liz chose Grand Beach

We love the proximity to the beach and the two separate family rooms. Our kids and their friends enjoy the sleeping porch and hanging out on the hammock under the trees. They also spend many hours on the basketball court, tennis courts and the golf course. There is also a great playground within walking distance to the cottage.

What makes this house unique

The new outdoor shower in 2013 is a great way to clean off after the beach or just to enjoy a shower under the stars. Grand Beach is a quiet private community where kids ride their bikes, walk to the clubhouse for an afternoon ice cream treat or cruise around on the golf cart enjoying the beautiful homes and abundant deer.

Enjoyable women's getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation rental is in a very quiet neighborhood with a short trip to the beach. Home has comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, wonderful patio area with comfortable furniture, extra upper deck with outdoor shower, 2 living/gathering rooms and updated bathrooms. The shed had numerous beach chairs, bikes and other items to help make a vacation fun for families. This group appreciated having 10 beds. Owners supplied a large variety of essentials and that was a definite plus. Having golf Cart was also a plus. Thanks Liz

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

You can rely completely on the accuracy of the "Property Description" as it fits this warm home to a "T". Nestled on a very quiet street very near the beach makes access with the golf cart super easy and fun. There are plenty places to relax, read, or join in good family conversation on the patio or inside. Walking, golfing and local points of interest are conveniently near by. We had nine adults who shared the meal prep and a mature teen who loved to make deserts. The kitchen was well equipped and we enjoyed our meals in the spacious family room. The new showers provided cooling comfort and bedrooms worked well to provide rest after a busy day. Our family has used VRBO for over 12 years and this home ranks near the top for sure. You won't be disappointed with this home as your choice and the owners are terrific to work with as well. Our family loved the house and are talking about returning next year.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

The house had everything that we needed for our family of 11 ( 8 adults and 3 children) with plenty of room to spread out. The outdoor shower was wonderful! The golf cart made it easy to get the provided beach chairs and toys to the beach. The beach itself was beautiful and not crowded. We cooked our meals in the well equipped kitchen (there was even an extra freezer with an ice maker!) It was fun exploring Grand Beach in the golf cart! We'll be back!

Fun Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week. The best was the outdoor shower with changing room. All the kids took showers outside. No sand in the house! Close to the beach. They wasn't anything I needed that the homeowner didn't provide. Looking forward to next year.

A delightful place!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about this place! The owner has created a beautiful get away home and she is very accommodating. My family of 10 spent a delightful week here and it fulfilled all our needs, comfortable sleeping accommodations for all, very nice new bathrooms, well equipped kitchen, lovely outdoor patio area, 2 family rooms - all charmingly decorated. It's just a short walk to the beach and all of Grand Beach's amenities are available to you. The owner's golf cart makes getting around the resort convenient and fun. Great for kids, and adults, of all ages. We will definitely be back!

Charming and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at this house for a girls weekend and absolutely loved it. It is only 4 houses away from private access to the lake, and it was immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. The brand new luxury bathrooms with skylights were a real treat! The furniture was all very comfortable and the kitchen was extremely well equipped for a large group - it had everything we could possibly need and it was all high quality. I have rented many homes through vrbo over the years and I found this owner to be one of the most gracious and thoughtful I have ever rented from. I will definitely come back in the summer with my kids so we can all enjoy the house, the lake and cruising Grand Beach in the owners golf cart. I highly recommend it!
