Why Tricia Baysdell, Property Manager chose Port Sanilac

The Perfect location, the perfect beach, sandy shallow waters and more. This small stretch (1/2 Mile) of Port Sanilac Beach area is special for several reasons; it is within walking distance to the Harbor, the beach is walkout, sandy and beautiful. You will not find a better beach within 30 miles of this location. The houses owned on this stretch of beach stay in families generation after generation and it is rare for one to come up for sale in this area. The property was owned by the same family for 60 years. The former matron of the home, Elizabeth, was at one time the General Consulate to Turkey. The house is filled with Turkish Ceramic Tiles and Accents. The fireplace is embossed with hand painted Turkish Tiles in a very unique design. Elizabeth left a full library of books in the upstairs office that we are now just starting to break into that will allow you hours and hours of reading.

What makes this house unique

Swim Spa - Hot Tub combined with an Endless Pool at 4.5 foot deep. KAYAKS and PADDLE BOARDS are included in Rental with 6 Adult Life Jackets and 2 Child Size Life Jackets!! Your family and children will not have a dull moment. Home, Patio and Decks are expansive and comfortable for large families. The home is a true joy to us and hope it will be to your family also. We also stock everything you might need in a home other than than your clothes and food. See our expansive list of items stocked including beach towels, bathroom towels, all paper products, shampoo/conditioner and more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful vacation home! Our family loved the beach and the variety of beach toys. Of course the hot tub was much appreciated, as was the outdoor shower. The large table was great for dining and the children had a great time at the outdoor table. The bunk room worked out for the 4 children and the little one was cozy in the walk thru closet, sleeping in a pack and play. Great weather all week!! Many fun games were played out on the lovely back patio.Thank You for supplying such a great assortment! I hope to return and make many more family memories.

Beautiful Christmas Gathering place

  • 5 of 5

Our family truly enjoyed the early December weather on the lake side. The house was decorated for us which made our gathering more festive and felt very cozy. We had a low burning fire in the fireplace for ambiance. The house was well equipped and perfect for a large family gathering. One couple even kayaked on the lake!

We would love to return again next year.

Great Mom's weekend away!

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was comprised of 12 women who were looking for a relaxing weekend. That's exactly what we got with this house. The first floor is all open and really large, a perfect gathering space overlooking the water. All of the bedrooms were enjoyed by the guests. I slept in the bottom bunk of the bunk room and was comfortable. The master suite is amazing, the doorwall opens and you can fall asleep to the sounds of Lake Huron. Beach was very well maintained and clean. We used the paddle boards and kayaks with ease. I loved the library area of the house as well. I WOULD DEFINITELY RENT THIS PROPERY AGAIN. We had a minor issue with the SwimSpa and patio door and Tricia, the property manager, came right out and was very helpful and polite. The SwimSpa was fully functional and we used it without a problem after her visit. Blue Water Sports Bar has great pizza and is a half mile away.

Minor things about property. Interior is dated, which didn't bother me, as everything was comfortable and fully-functional; Outdoor patio could use some lighting (maybe string lights or lanterns), as it was REALLY dark out there and hard to navigate without any light. SwimSpa water level was low, we had to fill with hose and wipe down the sides near the water line. I'm unsure if the house next door (white picket fence side) is a rental or owned, no one was there the entire weekend. However, had this house been occupied for the weekend it may have changed our stay. The yards are really close to each other with little privacy besides the white, picket fence. There were people at the house on the opposite side, but there is a lattice fence and natural barriers that kept them separated and that side felt really private.

Overall excellent stay. I would recommend this property to future occupants.

It was ok

  • 3 of 5

It could have been a little cleaner, a closet door was broke, a shelf in the closet was broke, in the utility closet there was dirty water in a bucket, the neighbor on one side was not nice. Just got in a the neighbor was yelling at me to move the stuff off her fence. And the stuff was not ours. The next day my kids and grandkids was in the water and the neighbor was yelling at them. Saying it was their property. In the water.

Just beautiful

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 ladies. We had a wonderful time. The house is very roomy. The swim spa was wonderful and the beach is really nice. We had the best weather you could ask for with gorgeous sunrises right there in front of the house.
