The Perfect Vacation Destination!!!

Let me start by saying my family and I enjoy vacationing in differnet areas of the country as much as we can. We have stayed in numerous spots on the Gulf of Mexico, Martha's Vineyard, Vegas, the Carolina's, etc. We enjoy the water, great views, great dining, biking, hiking, swimming, site seeing and all the other things that go with a great vacation. The Aruba - Want-a-be not was not only our FAVORITE vacation spot we have been too, it literally is surrounded with more things to do than you will ever be able to accomplish in one week. The accomodations are absolutely first class and the gentleman we rented from, Jim Rybaski truly BENT OVER BACKWARDS to ensure we had every need met, all the information regarding the area (hot spots to see and visit), and literally took a very personal interest in making sure not only my wife and I were happy but my two daughters as well. Jim invited us to go out on Lake Michigan for a sunset cruise, he was IMMEDIATELY accessible for any questions we had and most importantly was sincerely interested in keeping us happy. We just had the best week! We spent several days at the beaches (which are the best we have ever been too), the indoor/outdoor pools and hot tub, a day at Michigan Adventure Amusement Park, the sand dunes, long early morning walks along the pier, great dinners...we just can't say enough. The only downfall of our entire vacation was this morning when we checked out. The week went WAY too fast but such is life when you are having a great time. There is something in Grand Haven for everybody...no matter what age your age. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this unit and Grand Haven for anybody looking for a great vacation spot that truly makes you feel like you are away from it all. I also HIGHLY RECOMMEND Jim Rybaski as a host at the beginning of the vacation....and a friend by the end of it!
Owner's Response: Dear Ed and family, after reading your wonderful review, my head became so big, my hat doesn't fit anymore !!! These reviews are so special, it is like my scrapebook. I have memories too , and they start by the first phonecall for booking the Aruba-Wannabe. Most of my guests have never been to this area before, and I really try to get all guests in a vacation mood at the beginning, and as you state "as a friend at the end" Grand haven-Spring Lake is a special place, full of sun, beach, boating, and lots of water. Your children were special (as all children are) and enjoyed every aspect of their home away from home. They didn't want to leave, and it was hard for me to tell them, I had new guests arriving. Your daughter said to me " can I stay with them", how does one forget that, (out of the mouth of children). I told her she has to go back to her home with her dad & mom, just something I thought you would want to know !!!
You know you are always welcome, Ed and Cheryl, and please give my best to Becca & Jessica and yes, we have become friends. As always my best, Jim
