About Amy Pereira
I'm a designer by profession who's turned my passion for beautiful spaces into a new adventure in inn keeping!
In my lifetime I've renovated 5 of my own homes (not counting the ridiculous number of times I rearranged the living room furniture of my childhood home...and drove my mother batty!)
My design business brought me into people's homes right before they were ready to sell. I should rephrase that: they weren't really ready to sell and that was why I was there! Turning around spaces is my specialty.
I also work REALLY hard at my other job: being a mom to 6 year-old boy-girl twins. We live in Grand Haven 5 blocks from the cottage so that makes providing concierge-level service for my guests so easy!
Amy Pereira purchased this cottage in 2012
Why Amy Pereira chose Grand Haven
In January 2012, I purchased this Historic home in downtown Grand Haven, inheriting 2 lovely tenants. In the Spring of 2012, I made a go of converting one of my rental units into a weekly summer cottage and had a surprisingly successful 1st season.
The location is what makes this cottage shine. Nestled on a shady street just a block from the downtown business district, this residential street boast the proximity and privacy you'd look for when purchasing your own home.
Steps from all the great things Grand Haven has to offer and a pleasant walk to the beach (or even more convenient take The Beach-Town Trolley). If you were to stay in a beach property, you are convenient to one thing: the beach. But in Grand Haven that takes you away from all the other activities you need access to many times a day like restaurants, shops, ice cream, and other downtown attractions. When you choose a property like ours that's set away from the beach you avoid the crowds and the noise. I bought this cottage because I live in this neighborhood and I know the amenities it has to offer for families and couples alike! It's the best of both worlds; easy accessibility to the beach when you want it and excellent proximity to where all the other activities happen in Grand Haven.
What makes this cottage unique
I LOVE being an ambassador of our little town. I'm here to help you find your best vacation EVER! All my guests rave about the care I've taken to make a great location come alive with charm, conveniences and small luxuries. We added a vine-enclosed courtyard in the Fall of 2012, creating a place to BBQ, dine outdoors and cozy-up to a generous fire pit. What started as a humble year-round unfurnished rental has become Suite Retreat-great amenities, great attention to detail, great value.
This summer we will offer two beautifully designed suites decked out with all the amenities. This is a place where you simply pack a suitcase of your clothes leaving loads of EMPTY SPACE in your car because I've outfitted the cottage suites with everything you'll need to enjoy all that Grand Haven has to offer. Beach gear, games, toys, kitchen staples & condiments and even basic toiletries make this a SUITE RETREAT. I pride myself on providing a concierge-level of service with good value for money.
Guestbook comments from the owner
"Thanks you so very much for your hospitality, thoughtfulness, and all of the time you spent making this place perfect for us! We LOVE your attention to detail and all of the extras in your cottage. We all kept talking about how you remembered what's important to families and provided those things to your guests. This is such a special place and you are a special person! :) We loved the cool coffee maker (Keurig), the enormous beach bag & chairs, the laundry, the super cozy kitchen & bathroom. My daughter (4) loved the toy closet & all of the fun beach toys. Lastly, thank you for all of your suggestions on things to do and places to eat. Your advice made our vacation so much better! We LOVED Ray's Drive-in. YUMMY! We will definitely return here.
