About Mike Whalen

We (Mike and Judy Whalen) have been married for 15 yrs. Mike is 57 and retired in May of 2011 after 34 yrs with the Dept. of Corrections as a Health Unit Manager. Mike grew up in Muskegon and they currently live in Spring Lake. The 'Jackson Place' was just purchased in December 2012. We think we have found a perfect gem for guests looking for real value during their stay in such a wonderful tourist destination. Economical shoppers (particularly experienced return Grand Haven travelers) with no desire to compromise elegant lodging will notice the value. It has everything one would need and expect without the waterfront price. The location provides convenient access to everything that Coast Guard City has to offer. Grand Haven commands really high rental rates for many good reasons. We are sensitive to these prices and make every effort to provide our guests with many comforts and extra amenities. Our goal is to develop long term relationships with our guests. We want them to enjoy carefree vacations at the Jackson Place so much that they will want to return year after year.

Mike Whalen purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mike Whalen chose Grand Haven

A lot of Grand Haven summer travelers pay a lot of money to rent old fixer upper 1900 vintage homes downtown or on the waterfront.We know- we have one and it's the oldest house on the channel - see property #3006306) 'Whalens Channel House' at 834 s Harbor drive. We have put our hearts and soles ino making that old home very comfortable -- and it really is lovely. The truth is that 'many' of the older rental home homes have poor layouts ,with poor uses of space, often do not provide enough bathrooms, have sub par air conditioning and electrical systems to accomodate their guests. We looked for some time to find the perfect property to give our guests a great value for their money. Travelers don't have to compromise modern lodging that they have come to expect for an old upgraded turn of he century home. The Jackson place has a great location without the waterfront rates and built in 2006.

What makes this condo unique

It is spacious, warm and comes completely furnished. The living space is well designed and the architecture is pleasing to the eye. This provides open and functional living areas/spaces for a variety of social gatherings. One can curl up with a book in front of the fireplace, entertain a larger group in the loft area or relax in the recreation room with the wet bar. An important feature is that everything works like it is supposed to. No one will ever be late getting ready because they have to share bathrooms! This condo has three full and one half baths, a washer and dryer and iron and ironing board. This 1911 sq ft. 3 story condo is ideally located, modern and beautifully decorated.

perfect

  • 5 of 5
This place was so perfect for our stay. We had MORE than enough space. We had 4 adults and 2 kids staying there. We hosted a bbq for 16 people and still didn't feel crowded. The bikes were a hit! We walked downtown, took long runs in the morning along the beach and visited the local farmer's market. We will be back in 2 years for another high school graduation and hopefully we can stay here again!

Car: recommended

This condominium is new construction and complete with modern features. It is located two blocks from Chinook Pier and the Farmer's Market. It is less than two blocks from from Warf marina where the Grand Haven boardwalk begins on the Grand River. Fresh water charter fishing and sailing excusions are available with an assortment of specialty/resfreshment shops for all to enyoy. Across the river is the worlds largest musical fountain that starts at dusk every night throughout summer. Downtown has everything to offer; great pubs, restaurants, specialty shops, and entertainment. Continue down the boardwalk about a half mile to the number one State Park in Michigan. Past that is the City Beach. Mulligan's Hollow has a skate park, playground, baseball diamond, basketball courts, tennis courts, soccer fields and trails.

Michigan's Adventure (Cedar Point owned) amusement park is 18 miles away.

Michigan's Adventure is a 250 acre amusement park in Muskegon County, Michigan, about halfway between Muskegon, It is the largest amusement park in the state and has been owned and operated by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company since 2001. As of 2012, Michigan's Adventure has 53 rides, more than any other park in the state. The park also includes an outdoor water park ...

Grand Haven area has a diverse assortment of shopping options for the bargain hunter from' unique antiques, linen pant suits or boat supplies. No big malls here; check out the eclectic variety of boutiques and restaurants all downtown within walking distance or any trolley. Also, spend some time to enjoy those hard to find galleries, quaint shops and cafés off the beaten path.

With average temperatures in the mid-70s during the summer months you'll spend long, lazy days at the several different beaches in the area. We have miles of Great Lakes Miles coastline to enjoy and explore. Standup paddle boarding, kayaking and kiteboarding , have become the rage in recent years. Just plain old beachcombing and people watching has become almost a sport at any of the area beaches. Bike and hiking trails are popular among bicyclists and hikers. The city skate park is in constant motion during the warmest months of the year. Water enthusiasts can enjoy guided fishing, sailing, and diving expeditions, cruises and tours provided by one of the many charter boat captains.

Notes:
2 ELECTRIC BIKES ARE HERE!!! THEY ARE VERY COOL AND EASY TO USE. I'VE AD MINE FOR 2 YEARS NOW AND I LOVE IT! BRAND NEW EZIP BIKE'S. THEY FUNCTION LIKE A REGULAR 7 SPEED BIKE without the battetry pack-- BUT with A BATTERY PACK they are honestly the most wonderful carefree bikes you'll ever ride. You can ride the bike with BATTERY POWER only OR with the push of the POWER ASSIST BUTTON -- THE BIKE PICS UP PEDALING FOR YOU AUTOMATICALLY! THEY CRUISE AT 12-15MPH AND WILL GO 10-12 MILES ON A SINGLE CHARGE. WE WILL CHARGE A SMALL FEE AND PROVIDE THOSE INTERESTED WITH A HELMET AND WAIVER. FOR THOSE LESS ADVENTUROUS WE WILL HAVE 2 NEW BEACH BIKES AND THERE IS NO FEE. YOUR GONNA LOVE THESE EZIP BIKES!
