We love Grand Haven and are involved with the GH Coast Guard Festival, so we love to entertain and have families have a wonderful time. We lived on one side of this duplex and are now renting out both sides weekly instead of yearly.

Joyce purchased this apartment in 2000

This place is perfect, on a direct walk to the beach or all the restaurant and stores within 5 blocks! 8 ice cream stores within walking distance!! A historical home, well maintained with new AC and furnishings. A very unique double stairway to the 2nd floor. Huge basement to store your bikes or extra beach equipment.

Your front porch is perfect for the morning cup of coffee, a leisurely lunch or to watch the Coast Guard Festival parade go by! On a much traveled bike and walking/jogging route.

A Great Vaction Home

  • 5 of 5
This older home has just the right character for a vacation home in a beach town like Grand Haven. Large rooms, high ceilings, original wood floors and lots of light. Though the home is delightfully old, it has all the modern amenities you need: Wi-Fi, large flat screen TV, AC, dishwasher and a kitchen outfitted with enough dinnerware and flatware to feed a troupe of 20! And, its located in one of the prettiest neighborhoods in Grand Haven, all within walking distance of downtown. The owners are more than accommodating and the neighbors are friendly too! You can't go wrong with renting this home.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5
What a great place to stay!! We were in grand haven for soccer in the sand, in the past we have always just gotten a hotel. Our experience renting this home was by far the best trip we've had to date for soccer in the sand. Amazing location, beautifully decorated and the homeowners are so kind and accomadating! We highly recommend this vacation rental!!!

Grand Emerald Lady

  • 4 of 5
Grand old home, full of character. Well stocked and clean including linens, soaps, paper products, etc.
Close to downtown and the beach (although quite a long walk for older folks) and many ice cream shops!
Good bike riding too! Only complaint I have is that the traffic noise can be pretty loud - takes some getting used to especially if you prefer quiet for sleeping but was handled by closing windows, using AC/fans for sound abatement.

Summer Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The stay was great.

The house is older, but in great shape. It is very close to the beach and downtown. <1.0 mile walk to many locations of interest.

The owners went out of their way to ensure us and our kids enjoyed our stay. I would highly recommend this property if you plan on staying in Grand Haven.

Coast Guard Fun!

  • 5 of 5
The owners were more the generous and willing to help with any needs or questions we had. The rental was EXTREMELY clean, my husband commented that he would have been comfortable sleeping in the basement because it was so clean. It is well stocked with anything you needed to cook, bake or check out all the information that was there for places to eat, drink or be Merry! The brochures on things to do and places to go were in abundance. We cannot wait for next year!!!

Family Get Together

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this cottage. The cottage was very clean, and well maintained. Owners were very nice and easy to work with. Came from Chicagoland to visit relatives, and there was plenty of room for all who stayed here. The kitchen was nicely stocked with anything (other than food) that you would need to make a meal. The bedrooms were very comfortable. The owners had a very nice display of "What To Do" information for the area. The home is located very close to the beach and downtown area of Grand Haven. You could walk to downtown Grand Haven with no problem, beach maybe not, cause of all the "stuff" to carry. We will definitely keep this house in our files to stay at when we come back for another visit!
