About Tara Merlo

My mother and I just bought this cottage in May 2014 as an investment in my daughter's future. In her honor, we named our new cottage Savannah Sands!

Tara Merlo purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Tara Merlo chose Beachwood-Bluffton

Adorable and affordable, off the road and quiet—but still right on the beach! A true get away. Perfect for families, couples, or friends.

Gorgeous location! Beach in the summer, luge and winter sports in the winter! We also have a sister cottage next door, rent both for a larger friend/family get together!

What makes this cottage unique

Across the street form Pere Marquette beach-the large very clean public beach in Muskegon with concessions and a wonderful playground right on the beach. There is a great BBQ restaurant right on the beach, The Deck, with live music all summer. Also, in walking distance, is Dockers, a seafood/steak restaurant on the Marina. Our cottage is all season, and it is very beautiful here in Winter! One guest was able to finish her book on winter, staying at this rental!

great location for your beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the vintage cottage and making the short walk over to spend the day at the beach returning to grill fresh fish bought from the The Fish Monger's Wife. Then a run for ice cream and back for sunset viewing to end the day. Repeated for 6 days made for a perfect break!

Quaint and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Savannah sands. We had everything we needed. Loved being so close to walk to lighthouse and beach. Bed very comfy. Saw several deer in the mornings. Enjoyed soaking up the sun in the deck even though it was only about 67 degrees. Wish there were a few restaurants more local. And that the wifi was a bit amped up. But if we were there in the summer-- there prob would have been eats galore and no need for wifi! Thanks for a perfect romantic weekend!

Great location! Cozy cottage!

  • 4 of 5

Very nice, clean and cozy cottage! My husband and dog stayed here to enjoy the Norman Cruz beach near this property. We also enjoyed walks down Pere Marquette pier/park just steps away from the cottage. Will most likely stay here again for another vacation!

Cute cottage

  • 4 of 5

Very cute little cottage. I really enjoyed my time while I stayed here. Cottage was very clean and so close to the beach. I stayed here with my kids and they loved walking to the beach and playing at the park. I would stay again if I come back to the area.
