Bluefish Vacation Rentals has been in business for over a decade. We are in the business of providing our guests some of the top vacation homes in all of “Harbor Country”, while offering our home owners the very best care of their second home. We started Bluefish Vacation Rentals in 2001, and shortly after, started the Real Estate Sales division, at RE/MAX Harbor Country, successfully merging the two. We now rent and sell some of the finest cottages and homes in all of Harbor Country.

John 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 John 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, John moved to Union Pier full-time in 1999. His years in the hotel industry have helped us to successfully maintain our vacation rental business for over a decade.
Tom Hemingway: Tom comes from a greatly diversified background which brings many skills to his current positions, co-owner of BluefishVacation Rentals, and as a Realtor/Developer in Harbor Country. Tom’s background was mostly in the design field. After moving to Chicago, his design work evolved. He was doing visual merchandising, design work for advertising agencies, nightclub design, then onto owning a night club of his own.He moved to Union Pier full time in 1999 when he and John Natsis purchased, renovated and created what is now the Firefly Resort. Originally a 1930’s style resort property, with the combination of John’s hospitality background and Tom’s design skills, they created and successfully ran the Firefly Resort. After selling the property in 2001, Bluefish Vacation Rentals was born. Tom’s transition to a Real Estate career was a natural progression. At RE/MAXHarbor Country Tom has consistently achieved the highest level of Real Estate sales awards in all of Southwestern Michigan. Also over the past few years, Tom and John have developed and successfully sold two condo developments close to the beach in Union Pier.
