DOWNTOWN LUXURY HOME--IN A GREAT LOCATION!

Grand Haven House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

LOOKING FOR A GREAT LOCATION?

This wonderful vacation home is located right on the very edge of the historic Old Towne District of Grand Haven...in other words: just steps away from downtown!

WANT SOMETHING NEW AND FRESH AND EXCITING?

Except for the delightful 19th Century era transom above the main entrance--featuring the original glass--you would never know this home was built at the turn of that century. It has been completely remodeled--walls to floors to ceiling,--inside and out.

TAKE A LITTLE TOUR WITH US

As you walk in the front door you immediately notice the nine foot ceilings and the beautiful solid oak hardwood floors throughout the main level. Continuing through the carefully decorated living room, your eyes take in the lovely furniture and the 42' HDTV with Blu-ray DVD player. Further on into the dining area is a beautiful sold oak dining table with ceramic tile inlays. With the leaf and the extra chairs...you have a comfortable seating for 6, with bar and bar chairs just a few feet away for other diners. Off the dining area and through the gorgeous french door is a den/office area with a comfortable desk and a bookshelf full of books, games, and DVD's for those times when you just want to relax at home. Moving into the kitchen space you cannot help but notice the gleaming stainless steel appliances, cabinets and counter tops.

Everything is so new and fresh and inviting!

Upstairs you will find three lovely bedrooms featuring completely new bedding, attractive duvets, and high thread count linens. Also on the upper level is a well appointed bath with luxury linens (there is one of those downstairs as well), and a complete laundry area with washer and dryer.

Want to have a cookout? Just walk out your back door to the completely private and fully fenced patio area, where you will find a premium brand Weber gas grill waiting, as well as a complete outdoor dining set, and comfortable lawn chairs nestled under your own overhanging shade tree.

OH, AND DID WE MENTION THE LOCATION?

Just step out your front door and plop yourself down on one of the comfy front porch rocking chairs and look around you. By the way ...are you noticing that clean fragrance that seems to be coming from the porch itself?...that's because it is constructed of solid cedar! Feel like coffee but don't want to make it? No problem, just take a slow stroll to find two great coffee houses... they are both right there on the main street in Grand Haven, and you are only two blocks away! Actually, everything in the downtown area is in easy reach with a walk of only a few minutes; from the Chinook Pier, and the Farmers Market to the delightful Grand Haven Musical Fountain and the relaxing Boardwalk. Great restaurants, pubs, a microbrewery, ice cream shops, mini-golf, charter fishing, Lake Michigan sunset sailboat tours, and so much more. It's all right here for you....no driving, no parking problems,no hassles!

All in all...a GREAT home to stay in, and a perfect location for that PERFECT Grand Haven vacation!

But don't take our word for it, read below what our guests have to say:

FROM OUR GUEST BOOK:

'Everything was spotless, efficient, and beautiful, and your home is perfectly located and appointed'

'We had a great time and loved everything about the house. The location was ideal for us and all the special touches were greatly appreciated. We would recommend to everyone and would love to return'

'The house was very clean and refreshing. It was in close proximity to everything we wanted to do. We appreciated your hospitality! Thanks so much!'

'We have enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home. We had a great time and were close to everything from here. We made good use of the grill and the board games. It was a wonderful vacation.'

'Thanks for such a great week! The house is beautiful! It was an excellent place to bring together our family for a vacation---close to downtown and the beach. We enjoyed being able to walk so many places (often with a 2-yr-old wagon rider in tow). We would highly recommend your home to others. Thanks again!'

'This house was an amazing house! It was so clean and cute!...and the location was great. We loved all the games and puzzles you put out for us...'

'We had a wonderful stay in your beautiful home! It way exceeded our expectations! So happy we stayed here, and we will definitely be back! Thank you so much!'

'This was our first time renting a vacation home (have rented a condo with friends before), and was quite pleasantly surprised! The house was more than adequately stocked and the amenities (towels, paper goods, etc.) were wonderful and exactly how advertised! Nice cook wear! (we had breakfast almost every morning here). Tastefully decorated, and our friends loved the place too!!'

'This is our second time staying in this vacation home. It works perfectly for our family of four. Everything is always clean and ready for us! The owners are always available and ready to help. We love the new couch in the family room this year!'

'This was the perfect house for two young families! Everything was clean and comfortable. We loved the lemonade on arrival and the location was great! We hope to be able to return next year!

'As we looked around the home we found that the owners had thought of everything we might need! The location worked very well for walking to the shops, the restaurants, and the beach. The house was very comfortable for the six of us, and we really enjoyed the private back patio, and the very nice grill.'

'Thanks, Pat and Cory, for a wonderful second visit to your very special 'Blue House'. Yet again we had a fantastic time! The tea kettle and the blackout shades were great additions since we were last here. See you next year!'

'Thank you Cory and Patricia! The house is so beautiful and cute! It was perfect! It had everything we needed and you gave us a warm welcome. The location is very nice and made getting to places very easy. We loved the rocking chairs on the front porch...perfect for relaxation.

We hope to come back soon!'

'This house is in the best spot for everything! The owners are great and very friendly. We could walk everywhere...just left the SUV in the driveway. The house is very clean and spacious and has everything you need. I would definitely bring my family here again! Thanks for the best family vacation ever!!'

'Fantastic home and experience. We would not change a thing'

'Thank you Cory and Pat for a wonderful vacation home! Everything was perfect. We HAVE to return again!!

'Pat and Cory thought of everything. The house was so clean and so cute. We would love to come back and will definitely rent this house...we loved it! Thanks for taking such great care of us! This was a perfect ending to a wonderful summer.'

Thank you for the wonderful stay. we will remember the clean...EVERYTHING! The soft, lovely, feeling sooo good shower mat, your books, your games, Calvin and Hobbes!!...and for NOT having to launder the bedding!

...we really appreciated the comfortable beds, clean home, upgraded decor, and all the supplies you thought to provide. The location is premium for SO MANY different activities and the price is fair for all that is provided.

This was our third year in a row here at the 2nd street home. Our kids love coming here and our oldest daughter refers to this house as our 'Michigan vacation home' throughout the year. This year we brought our newest addition with us and had another amazing week! The house is in great shape as it always has been since we have been coming here. The owners, Cory and Pat, are super friendly and really attentive to our needs.

We look forward to creating memories here as the kids keep getting older. We love the town and this house!!

Great house! Wonderful owners! Very close to downtown shops and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time I rented a home from someone, thus I was nervous in selecting a place. The purpose of the trip was to celebrate my 32nd birthday and my mother’s 65th birthday. There were five adults (two couples in their early 30s and my mother). I was looking for something close to town and chose the home solely on the reviews (which after my five day stay, I can say they were very truthful). The pictures on the listing are very accurate. In fact, the home is much more beautiful in person. The owners, Cory and Pat, have done a marvelous job stalking the home with all the essentials. We went to the beach every day we were there and I greatly appreciated the beach towels, beach umbrella and beach chairs the owners provided.
If you are looking for something close to town, this is it! It is about a 3 minute walk. The rooftop of the Kirby house (5 minute walk) is a nice place to grab a cocktail, dinner, and watch the light show. One morning I took a run from the house to the end of the pier/lighthouse, which is about 1½ miles. We drove to the beach because we had so much to bring, but if you only need a towel, you can definitely walk (1½ miles). We took advantage of the porch and rocking chairs for morning coffee and the back patio for grilling and dinner.
Pat and Cory are on top of everything that I never needed to call them before getting there or once there. In fact, they do a wonderful job of providing instructions for everything you might possibly have a question about, loved that! However, they do stress to you the freedom to call them at any time.
The house was the perfect size for five adults. It was a bit warm at night on the second floor, but there are powerful fans in each of the three rooms. We did meet Pat and Cory, who are very warm people and I could quickly tell that they take pride in their home and the happiness of those that rent from them. I didn’t expect to feel like their home was my home, but I did! It’s a nice feeling to have when you’re supposed to be on vacation relaxing. Although there were no children in our group, the home is very kid friendly (i.e., games, movies, and books). I would recommend this home for anyone who is looking to be close to town and have easy access to the beach.
Pat and Cory, thank you for sharing your home with us. We enjoyed our stay very much and had a wonderful time in Grand Haven. We hope to be back next year for a full week! Oh, and thank you for the fresh squeezed lemonade, it was wonderful!

Just back from our 3rd visit.....the property is as pristine as it was on our first trip.

We've now spent 4 weeks at the blue house. This time we stayed 2 weeks. It has all we need for cooking and the back yard is perfect for BBQs, lunch or breakfast! The beds are so comfortable, you really sleep! We love the games and DVDs. The washer and dryer are a plus as is the Wi-Fi. We take our bikes and cycle to the beach and chain them up in the back yard. Chilling on the porch with a cocktail after a day at the beach is perfect. The location takes some beating. We love being minutes walk from downtown.

Happy Family

It was fantastic. This home was so well maintained and clean. The location so close to everything in downtown Grand Haven allowed us to walk to the shops, the Memorial Day parade, restaurants, ice cream, and the Musical Fountain.

We really enjoyed our stay. The house had everything we needed. It was the perfect size for two small families. Great location, too. Easy walk to downtown, and there is a park nearby. We would stay again.

We would be glad to do this again!

  • 5 of 5
We were relieved to drive up to the property and notice immediately that the outside was well maintained and the landscaping was very attractive. Then, the inside reflected the outside with recent remodeling and upgrading an historically old home. The home was well stocked with supplies with ample instructions as to the home's use (and the owners' expectations for our care of it). We especially enjoyed the large fenced in patio where the family gathered for evening cookouts.
Grand Haven also exceeded our expectations for the enjoyment of four family units ranging from teenagers to grandparents. (We stayed in two homes.) We enjoyed the beach, the evening musical fountains, the intergenerational dancing, the shops, the restaurants, the farmers market, etc., etc. The property is 2-3 blocks from most attractions, so conveniently located.

Beautiful spacious retreat

  • 5 of 5
This is a truly wonderful house. It's a beautifully restored older home, simple yet very tastefully finished. And of course most importantly for me, exceptionally clean. It's even nicer than the pictures depict. The bathrooms, which are not shown, are as clean and beautiful as the rest of the home. We really appreciated too the dedicated office space with the wifi and Ethernet connection. We spent more time indoors than we planned due to inclement weather so we were glad to have had such a spacoius comfortable place to relax. Five star!
