I have put a lot of my heart and soul into this place and love the vibe. When I am not traveling, or working, I love to visit my Westside Home. Grand Rapids is large enough to have all the things you expect from a big city with out a lot of the confinement. You can drive out of grand rapids 10 miles in any direction and enjoy the raw untouched beauty, awesome rivers/lakes, and green space Michigan is well known for. I have lived in many different areas in Michigan and I would say the westside is the best side. This home is an extention of my heart and I hope you will feel welcome as a fellow traveller of this world when you walk through the doors.

Grand Rapids is close to everything and everywhere you want to be in West MI. Some places in MI require a half hour drive or more to procure grocerices. I used to live Up North and loved the natural beauty but began to see the limitted access as a disadvantage. Where the Grand Rapids area offers the convenience of Michigans second largest city and a bounty of enviromental purity I value so much. Just a 25 mile drive to Lake MI and all the perks of city life. What more can you ask for?
This home is in the perfect location. Right off the main drag that takes you directly from the city to the lakeshore. Direct access to Interstate I96, Highway 131, and M-45(Lake MI Drive). So you can have a direct route downtown, or to the lakeshore. Take advantage of the massage room and book a spa treatment while you stay. It's like your own private B and B without the nonsense. There is a gym and a coffee shop right accross the street and a killer diner with great breakfast and burgers within walking distance.
My husband and I rented the Guest House for a short weekend trip to visit Beer City, USA with 3 of our friends. The house was a great size with one person staying in the dormer. We were initially worried about sharing one bathroom, but it worked perfectly! We are planning a summer visit and will be renting the Guest House again!
This house was a wonderful location for us (although we were familiar with the area) and the owner was welcoming and SO ACCOMMODATING! She provided amazing massages and was just wonderful. The house is adorable and perfect for a getaway! We had 5 adults and a toddler and a dog and it fit everyone fine, and the one bathroom situation was pretty tolerable.
We can't wait to go back!
The house was perfect for our visit. We had 4 adults and two active dogs. The fenced in yard was perfect and the nearby dog park was an added plus. We were minutes from everything, but we chose to stay in for dinner both nights. Thanks Rachel. We'll be back!
This house is wonderful. We had plenty of room for 2 families. The teenagers loved it! The 5 year old had plenty of room to sleep and play. It was great to make coffee every morning and have a big table to sit around and visit and eat. We continually found more interesting things to see in this house. Would recommend it and hope to stay again someday.
We went to the corn maze and the haunt and had an early Thanksgiving with our family.
Found this place on VRBO. Yet another rewarding rental experience that reinforces for me the value of working directly with owners through this site - there's just something extra special about the pride that comes with that!
The details the owner has attended to on this property are wonderful - terrific, spirited decor (I echo the world beat description) and lots of extra touches like making sure the blinds in the bedroom do not let in any light. The colors are warm and inviting and time in front of the fireplace at this property is to be treasured.
We stayed with two people and our dog and enjoyed every second in the space. We found it easy to get to many attractions in the Grand Rapids area and baby gated our dog in the breakfast nook area anytime we could not bring her along - this worked out well. We took the dog for many walks in the quiet, beautiful neighborhood and enjoyed time at the West Side Dog park within walking distance of this property.
Working with the owner was a delight! We also added on a massage while there as a perfect kick off to a relaxing week. Contact the owner for details on this.
If you need a place to rent in Grand Rapids, I strongly recommend this property. GREAT spot!
One tip if you're new to Grand Rapids as we were during this stay: if you have navigation in your car, set it avoid freeways when going back and forth from this property. Doing so will save you a lot of doubling back and extra trouble just going city street routes.
This was a great house in a nice quiet location. It was very cozy and clean. The backyard was great to hang out and lay on the hammock. It was only about a 7 minute drive to downtown. It was perfect for our family of four adults and 1 child. My sister took a cab back home after being downtown for the night and it only cost her $11.
The house is just a few blocks west of the John Ball Zoo.
Close to all the major downtown event venues. The Amway Grand Plaza, Goei Center, Van Andel Arena, DeVoss Place, The Bob, St. Cecilia's Musical Society, GRCC, GVSU, and downtown museums and attractions.
There is a shuttle that will pick you up and drop you off in the heart of Grand Rapids Nightlife to check out places like the GR Brewing Company, Stella's Lounge, Hop Cat, San Chez, Bar Divani, the Pyramid Scheme, Peppino's Sports Bar, and the list goes on.
If you find yourself traveling to Grand Rapids for a wedding, getaway weekend, visiting family, or business; this location cannot be beat.
