About Tim and Tina McCalley

When Tim and I travelled to Hawaii this past year, one of the first things that made an impression was the beauty of the Island. In addition, it reminded us so much of where we live, Traverse City! Tim and I love Traverse City and the very unique way in which the multitude of happenings would have you think its a big City but the atmosphere is one of a friendly Island community. Tim and I prefer to call it our 'little Maui' at least in the summer months. That is why we made the decision to convert our property into a vacation rental. Now others can experience what our family has experienced living here.

Tim and Tina McCalley purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Tim and Tina McCalley chose Northern Michigan

At the McCalley Vacation Rental you have a choice of a quiet peaceful getaway to just relax and take a bike ride on the nearby bike trail, sit on the beach at Grand Traverse Bay and watch the sunset, have a glass of wine and relax here on your deck. Or you may want to fill every day with the many exciting activities that are only minutes away. You can be so near to the many attractions and yet you can escape to the quiet if you need to. Just ask us and we will assist you in planning your activities.

What makes this apartment unique

Whatever season suits you there is something for everyone for almost every outdoor sport for every season.

Perfect space for a short weekend

  • 5 of 5

This worked great for being in town for just a couple nights for a wedding. And the wedding happened to be less than 5 minutes away. It worked out well. Everything we needed was available. Thanks again!

Beautiful apartment with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was wonderful. The apartment had everything we needed, was clean and well kept. It was outside of town which gave us an amazing view while drinking morning coffee on the deck but was close enough that it was only a couple minute drive to restaurants and shopping.

The place was clean, quiet and located perfectly. We enjoyed our stay for a long wedding weekend. Everything we needed was there; towels, bedding, even games for down time. It was a rainy weekend so we didn't have a chance to sit out on either of the decks, but they looked inviting. Definitelywould rent again!

This was my first time using home away and I was very impressed. Quick drive into downtown TC made it a perfect spot. The golf course near this location (Crown Golf, I think) was great and a pretty good deal.

The rental was as pictured, the communication before was quick and easy. Overall it was exactly what my group of friends were looking for. Highly recommended.

Pretty good location could get into town without a lot of traffic. Still waiting to get info on the return of my deposit. Not sure why it takes so long? It would be good to get notified. Jim Byrnes

The property was perfect for our family. It was clean, well kept, spacious, and perfectly located.

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed here with our 4 children (one in a pack and play). The apartment was so enjoyable. It is located a close drive to town, yet you feel removed, as it is spacious and has a lot of outdoor room to run and play. I would highly recommend staying here. The owners are gracious and friendly.

There is so much to see and experience!...plan on a busy visit especially if you visit during one of our famous festivals. The National Cherry Festival, Wine and Arts Festival and the Film Festival to name a few. Downtown Traverse City has many unique stores and restaurants and local wineries and breweries that offer tours on both Leelanau and Old Mission peninsulas. The views are spectacular to say the least! You cannot leave without visiting the National Dunes Lakeshore...this is a nationally know state park! Visit our quaint surrounding towns like Leland, Suttons Bay, Charlevoix, Elk Rapids and others. There is all of Lake Michigan and its beautiful sandy beaches to enjoy. You will not forget the breathtaking sunsets! Especially the sunset at Empire which is your little Maui, Hawaii. Traverse City offers cycling for the diehard road biker or skilled mountain biker... we are biker friendly with Mountain trails and paved trails and tours such as the Leelanau Harvest Tour or the RAT ( Ride around the Torch). Folks come from all over just to participate in these tours. Stay a little longer into Fall and see amazing colors. This is also a great time to take a bike tour of our region. The tunnel of trees is one of the more popular local tours. If winter is your favorite season, you will enjoy our many nearby resorts such as Holiday Hills and go just a bit further and there is Crystal Mountain Resort. We have many places to hike, snowshoe and cross country ski that lead into areas where you can warm up with a hot cider!
