About this property

Come for the Fall Colors! Gorgeous Homestead Condo

Welcome to The Homestead and beautiful South Beach with steps to white sand beaches and gorgeous freshwater Lake Michigan. Come enjoy your vacation, wonderful in all four Michigan seasons, in a spacious home full of light, comfort, and relaxation. Guests from all backgrounds are welcome in this home. Celebrate life's milestones with families, or groups of friends, all year round! Please make our vacation home your home during your stay. We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do, all year round. We are passionate about providing an outstanding stay and look forward to your inquiry. It is a 2-story spacious upscale condo with a relaxing, cozy vibe, and a short boardwalk to the beach. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths upstairs. Downstairs has 2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, (1) twin bunk bed and addt'l (2) loose twin mattresses. Comfortable sheets, a crazy mix of bath towels, and beach towels are provided. Sliding doors out to deck and beach downstairs. Outdoor deck upstairs and down. Gas grill is located downstairs on lower deck. There is a full working wood fireplace (wood is stocked in season in the outside shed). Full kitchen with stove, 27" wall oven, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, espresso machine, and fully stocked pots, pans, and utensils for cooking. Many condiments and spices are available for cooking. You are welcome to use and replenish. Two open living rooms upstairs and down. TV both upstairs and down. Great movie collection. Wifi provided. You have full access to our entire place. This home does NOT include membership to the Homestead Beach Club in the summer. However, there are tennis courts, bike trails, and plenty of golf courses nearby. Bikes, canoes, and kayaks are all available for rent in town. In the winter, nearby Crystal Mountain or The Homestead Resort ski hill are available for downhill skiing, and snowboarding. Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing are also available at the Homestead. South Beach is part of the Homestead Resort, and the last beachfront complex. The Homestead is a top destination spot for vacations, getaways, weddings, reunions and meetings, spa and salon services, and year-round recreation. It is located within the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore in scenic northern Michigan, the area chosen by viewer's of ABC's Good Morning America as the Most Beautiful Place in America. Four Michigan seasons bring their own distinct beauty and activities that you can enjoy year-round. The town of Glen Arbor, full of adorable shops and restaurants, is a short drive, walk or bike ride (1 mile) away. Sleeping Bear dune climb, a must, is also just outside of town. This home is equipped with beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, towels, and boogie boards. There is a full parking lot for South Beach Building #3. ONE parking space is available for this condo - #23. Other spaces are designated by a 'V' for visitor. We ask that you limit your cars please. Boats and jet skis are welcome with a ramp into Lake MI in the town of Glen Arbor. You can also inquire about that at Big or Little Glen Lake. Other things to note: Like many other condos in South Beach, with steps to Lake MI, this home is NOT air conditioned in the summer. This home is also smoking free home. A fine of $500 will be assessed and yes, we are not kidding. No pets please. In summer season, bonfires are allowed in designated fire pits on the beach only. Open bonfires or fireworks are not allowed and you will be fined $500. The condo complex is serious about that, as we've had building fires (buildings are constructed of all wood) over the years. Thank you for understanding.

Business getaway to regenerate

Very clean and spacious place the view was breathtaking with walkways to the beach. The owners were wonderful to work with and made sure we were all set. I would recommend this home to anyone

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful, comfortable, well-stocked lakeshore condo

We loved the view of the dunes and shoreline. Ample room for dining and visiting. Wood was stocked for the fireplace--very kind. Every pot, pan and utensil you would want was there. So well stocked with condiments and spices. Owner very helpful. Peaceful, comfortable. We loved it and would love to go back!

5/5 Excellent

A great family place

We really enjoyed our stay at your condo. It has lots of space, a very functional kitchen, comfortable beds, and lots of towels, chairs and floats for the lake. Attractive and clean - we would definitely recommend it to others and hope to return.

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic view and ideal location

Great property with plenty of beds and bathrooms, and a huge door wall and windows facing the water which seemed wider than the previous Homestead condo we rented. Great extras like beach chairs, umbrella, floats, etc. Nice to have all kitchen utensils and pots, etc when some rentals do not. Perfect location, perfect beach. Not much else to say, it's great.

4/5 Good


We had a wonderful stay. Lots of beach toys and equipment....much appreciated! Beautiful sunsets! Great spaces for a family! Our only criticism is you need a larger hot water heater.
