We moved from out of state and needed a nice place completely furnished to stay for the winter. Mark and Sandy were more than accommodating. The home was absolutely beautiful. Huge spacious kitchen that opened up to the family room. 4 Nice Sized bedrooms along with another giant walkout family room in the basement that could be used for sleeping as well. The backyard is a dream - the deck wraps around the yard with two levels, it is totally fenced in and very private with a high fence. There are enough lounge chairs to have 25+ people out there getting sun as well as a nice grill and seating for as many as you would need.
If the home wasn't amazing enough, it is only a short walk to Lake Macatawa, and less than a mile from Tunnel Park/Lake MI. The entire Lake Shore street has a giant walkway that goes for miles for riding bikes, running, or just taking a stroll with the family after dinner. It is quiet and peaceful there and you won't get the mess of cars lined up in front of your house as they leave the lake like you will on Ottawa Beach Rd.. I can't say enough good things about it. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and would definitely book it for a vacation. We loved the street so much that we are looking at buying something near there.
Plus you are close to all the niche spots like Itty Bitty Bar, Ottawa Cafe, and just a short drive to downtown Holland. Grocery store is close by, there is a very nice skatepark for the kids about 4 miles away. It is the complete package and we were sad to leave.
If you are wanting to take your family on a vacation, or thinking of having a get-together weekend with friends then seriously look no more, this is the spot. It doesn't matter if you are bringing 5 people or 10 people, it has everything you need. Trust me I've stayed at many top notch rentals in West Michigan and Mark and Sandy's home is not only the cleanest and nicest, but also the most welcoming.
