Beachtown Vacation Rentals.
Harbor Country, Michigan.
Although Beachtown Vacation Rentals is somewhat of a re-invention for us, we have been in the Vacation Rental industry since 2001. “Beachtown” is a spin off from our original Vacation Rental Company, Bluefish Vacation Rentals, which we started in 2001. We sold Bluefish on January 1st, 2018, and have kept our personally owned properties and formed Beachtown Vacation Rentals. We are so excited to offer our personal properties to our guests, all of which have a rich rental history from our years in the industry. We feel that with our many years of experience, living in the area, and the fact that we own each of these homes, will really allow us to offer an exceptional rental experience for our guests.
In 2003, we also started the Real Estate Sales division of our company, at RE/MAX Harbor Country, successfully merging both the rental business and Real Estate home sales. We now rent and sell some of the finest cottages and homes in all of Harbor Country.
As owners of Beachtown Vacation Rentals, each of us bring our own experiences and perspective.
About John Natsis
“My professional background started in the Chicago Hospitality/Hotel industry. I worked in various capacities for Marshall Fields, Sheraton Chicago Hotel & Towers for several years, then on to a management position with Chicago Hilton & Towers. This experience provided me with business and managerial skills, customer service expertise, intuitiveness and compassion for others, as well as a great understanding of the hospitality industry. After spending many vacations and holidays in Harbor Country, we moved to Union Pier full-time in 1999. My years in the hotel industry have helped us to successfully maintain our vacation rental business for 17+ years. Tom and I also work together as developers in the area, often rescuing some of the older homes and commercial properties and giving them a completely new life.”
About Tom Hemingway
“I come from a greatly diversified background which works nicely with current position, co-owner of Beachtown Vacation Rentals, and Realtor/Developer in Harbor Country. My background was mostly in the design field. After moving to Chicago, I was doing design work for advertising agencies, nightclub design, then onto owning & operating a night club. We moved to Union Pier full time in 1999 and purchased, renovated and created what is now the Firefly Resort; Originally a 1930’s style resort property. After selling the Firefly in 2001, Bluefish Vacation Rentals was created, then sold some 17 years later. My transition to Real Estate was a natural progression. At RE/MAX Harbor Country I have consistently achieved the highest level of Real Estate sales awards in all of Southwestern Michigan. Also over the past 15 years, together we have developed/rehabbed and sold multiple properties, from quaint cottages to a 19-unit condo development in Union Pier. My knowledge of design and construction has help me guide my buyers and sellers and has made me one of the top producers in the area.”
