$3,400./Week Rent

Sunshine Villa is part of an enclave of 18  villas in Union Pier that share an association swimming pool. The construction is new and when the architects of Pier 9 Villas designed the houses they did so that each villa though connected is private from the others.

 

Sunshine Villa is a 2-storyed  attached house, with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths; private flagstone courtyard with Adirondack chairs around a fire pit and a large bistro table for outside dining.  It sleeps 9.

 

Sunshine Villa is in Union Pier, Michigan on the lake side of Red Arrow Highway. It is a few miles from downtown New Buffalo and less than a block to Union Pier Village.

There are 3 beaches close by to chose from: Miller Beach is  ½ blocks to Lake Michigan; Berrien Beach (without any stairs-just a slope of sand) and McKinley Beach are  3 & 2 blocks away respectively.

A bit of background:

The story of The Sunshine Villa starts with the story of a woman who went to Union Pier every year of her childhood. And then stopped going for many years. Once she had grandchildren she realized she wanted to give them the gift of a cottage that she had as a child. She felt she needed that sense of a cottage to be happy. So she returned to Union Pier.  And last year she bought herself and her children Sunshine Villa—a place to be happy together at.

 

For now, in her life, maybe like your life, she has too many commitments to spend all summer here, so she wants to share Sunshine Villa with your family.  A lake place for you to visit and revisit year after year making memories for your children and grandchildren until that time you too feel compelled to buy your own cottage.  It starts with needing a sense of cottage around you. You will find that here.

Details:

3 bedrooms upstairs; 1 bedroom downstairs.

3 full baths; two upstairs; one downstairs

Upstairs-3 bedrooms

  • The master bedroom: king size bed; private bath with walk-in shower
  • A private deck with café table and chairs for sharing a cup of coffee in solitude in the morning sun.
  • The children’s guest room: 3 bunk beds (sleeps 3)
  • The other guest room; queen size bed (sleeps 2)
  • The first floor bedroom: trundle bed that pulls out to sleep two people comfortably.  Those guests use the 3rd bathroom on the main floor
  • Bunk bedroom and queen bedroom share the 2nd bathroom on the 2nd floor (tub & shower)
  • Master bedroom has a private bath with walk-in-shower
  • First floor has 3rd full bathroom with walk-in shower.

 

The Great Room

The first floor is almost entirely a Great Room that stretches out under a cathedral ceiling to include the kitchen, its island, the living room and dining room. The fireplace divides the Great Room from the dining room area which overlooks the courtyard. Multiple windows, high and low spread the sun light throughout the Villa—thus the name Sunshine Villa.

The décor?

What a relief! While the décor is certainly done in the cottage vernacular, thanks to the good taste of the woman who owns the Sunshine Villa. The furniture is a mix of Crate and Barrel quality sofa and chairs and found objects re-purposed. An example I like is a small dresser drawer converted into a whimsical container to hold silverware. All the china matches! All the pots and pans are new of a matching set. The order and newness makes me want to go home toss out the old and buy a new set of perfectly matching kitchen everything!

Linens and towels are provided and are of high cotton count. And the towels are thick enough to actually dry you!

The Sunshine Villa has its own private flagstone courtyard with a fire pit surrounded by Adirondack chairs for telling ghost stories and roasting marshmallows. The courtyard is partially fenced and additionally screened with significant landscaping to give a sense of openness but pricy as well.  It has a  bistro table and chairs for outdoor dining.

 

The in-ground, heated swimming pool is just on the backside of The Villa. Beautifully landscaped and private to just the other Villas of the association.
