Grand Life Vacation Rentals

Embark on an amazing Lake or Beach Adventure with Grand Life Vacation Rentals!

Grand Life Vacation Rentals (GLVR), founded in 2020 by Mike Duke is a short-term vacation rental property management company based in Oklahoma with properties at Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees in northeast Oklahoma and Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. 

Mike with over 30 years of customer service experience in the beverage distribution business, decided to pivot towards a more tranquil venture – the enchanting world of vacation rentals in 2019. 

Inspired by the allure of being by the water and driven by a desire to share its beauty, GLVR initially started with the rental of Mike’s personal lake homes.

What began as an experiment soon evolved into a passion project and a thriving business. Grand Life Vacation Rentals has since grown into a premier property management company, overseeing multiple meticulously chosen properties. Each property, a gem in itself, reflects the commitment to offering the finest vacation rental homes on the lake and beach. 

At the core of GLVR’s mission is a simple yet profound goal – to share our love for being at the lake and beach. The team at GLVR strives to provide our guests with the same lake and beach experiences that have been cherished by Mike’s friends and family over the years. It’s not just about the stay; it’s about creating moments and memories against the breathtaking backdrop of the water.

A hallmark of GLVR is its unwavering dedication to customer service. Every guest is not just a visitor; they are welcomed into a community that values their experience above all else. The homes managed by GLVR are not merely places to stay; they are meticulously equipped havens, mirroring the comforts of premier beach and lake vacation homes.

As you consider an escape to your next Beach or Lake vacation, Grand Life Vacation Rentals extends a warm invitation. Whether you’re seeking a family retreat or a getaway with friends, GLVR is poised to help you make memories of a lifetime. Thank you for your interest, and the GLVR team eagerly anticipates the opportunity to host you and your loved ones. 

Your adventure awaits!
