Booking for Summer '18! Eight weeks already booked as we have many returning guests in the summer.

Very private home on sand dune set away from neighbors. Aptly decorated for your beach vacation. Block to Lake Michigan. Golf cart included (in season).

The space

Welcome to TreeTops at Grand Beach! We appreciate you stopping by. As we run on multiple sites please know that we have 50+, 5-star reviews in total (and only 5 star) in under 3 seasons of owning/renting the property. Many reviews rave about the deck, the decorations, the serenity and/or privacy. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions about the house and/or something listed on the site.

TreeTops is a classic Grand Beach home nestled in the trees of Old Grand Beach; a block from Lake Michigan, the park/tennis courts, a quick 1/4 golf cart ride to the golf course and includes all the trappings for a great week or weekend. It's a very private property as evidenced by the pictures and many of the comments in the reviews. Both the house and adjoining deck are perched high off the street on a sand dune away from neighbors.

The home is 2,000 square feet with 3 bedrooms/2 baths and a monstrous deck that winds down to a dead-end street that allows you to walk the block to the beach in a few minutes. As well, your rental (in season) comes with the use of our golf cart, that seats four, and can quickly transport you to the beach, golf course or anywhere within the Village. Grand Beach is a golf cart “approved” village. You must have drivers license to operate golf cart on the streets.

The kitchen is very large and comes with all kinds of necessities for cooking and baking. We keep the spice cabinet well stocked so leave your spices at home. Re: grilling, we have a new, large gas grill for the barbecue king or queen. There's a bar off the kitchen that allows for additional seating to the kitchen nook table. See pictures for better detail. We have a Keurig coffee machine for your K-Cups as well as a traditional coffee maker too.

The main living area is very spacious and includes a large flat screen TV and a dual sided fireplace for fires in the off season. There's an additional 4 person, round table in the living room for added seating, working a puzzle and/or a great game of cards.

The three bedrooms upstairs bedrooms are spacious and all have newly acquired beds and linens. Total bed sleeping accommodates 9 (1 king, 2 queens, 1 twin bunk and one twin) and is ideally suited for three families with kids. This is not to say that some can't sleep downstairs but the house is really geared for six adults (max) and some children. Let me know if you have any questions about lodging.

For the summer vacationers, we have a surfboard, a kids kayak, 4+ boogie/wake boards, a half dozen beach chairs, four small child life vests and an umbrella for the beach.

We’re excited to offer you a great, private retreat home in Old Grand Beach for whatever your week or weekend calls for. Mid-week rentals also available and we rent year round.

A little history: the house was purchased at the end of 2014 and we completed the renovation in the spring of 2015...just in time for the rental season. All pics are current to the property today. TreeTops is also owner-managed.

So come stay with us. Many others have. We really think you'll enjoy the house as much as we have so far. And please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions and thanks for giving us a look.

Thanks,
K, H, S & Z

This was the best Airbnb experience we've ever had! Our host was responsive, helpful, and welcoming. The house was very clean and the golf cart was really cool!

This home was a perfect place for my family for 4 along with my 3 in-laws to stay for a 3-day getaway to Harbor Country in Michigan. We have been coming to the area for many years but this was our first time in the fall. The owner was excellent at communicating with us and the check-in and check-out was easy (we actually got in early and could stay late since there were no guests after us). The home was very clean, well equipped and tastefully decorated. My boys said their beds were more comfortable than home. The neighborhood was beautiful to walk our dog around and the home is very conveniently located close to downtown New Buffalo. Due to a mild winter, most of the beach accesses were closed because of high water. There was a small section of beach we could use that had a pier (great for a little yoga practice with a beautiful view). Hopefully Mother Nature cooperates so there is more beach next year but it was just perfect for a fall retreat.

Keith's house is Grand Beach is great. I rented it with a few for a weekend away and had a great time. The descriptions and photos are as advertised. Easy to get to and close to the beach but very private. Would definitely consider renting again with friends or with the family.

Our vacation at Keith's place at Grand Beach exceeded our expectations! The location was great and the accommodations were excellent! Everything we needed was available and well-maintained. We felt very "at home" and comfortable. We especially loved the easy beach access and the wonderful shaded deck. Perfect for folks like us that enjoy spending time outdoors. All in all it was a great week of quality family time, thanks to our host! We definitely want to come back! Bob, Karen and family

The house was just as described! We had a great time, the kids lived the bunk beds, golf cart and how close we were to the. Each. My husband and I loved how private the beach is and convenient to run back to the house if we needed to grab something. Very close drive to everything in harbour country, we would stay here again for sure! Thanks for a great trip!

The TreeTops is the perfect spot for couples or a family to have a great time at the lake. This was our first time in the area on a trip like this so I'm sure if you are more seasoned you will get even more out of everything this space had to offer. Keith is another fantastic AirBnb owner and I really enjoyed communicating with him. The house is clean and well prepared for guests. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. I would stay again if I can and highly recommend this house and thus owner.

Keith`s place was a perfect getaway for our family. I would just like to note a few things that may be of interest to other possible renters. 1. Keith is by far the best host we have had on airbnb! 2. The property is up on a hill, so when your on the spacious deck. You are overlooking the neighors, and dont have anyone overlooking you during your stay. That was a nice added bonus that I enjoyed. 3. The golf cart is awesome for trolling around the area and going back and forth to the beach. 4. There is a small park a block away for the kiddos to burn of some energy. 5. House has a nice open layout for entertaining. If we return to Michigan City area, we would likely stay at the Tree Tops House Thanks Keith, all your efforts are greatly appreciated!
