We had such a lovely stay at this apartment in downtown Grand Haven! The location is amazing. We chose an apartment over staying in a hotel because I wanted an extra bedroom for our toddler so that he could nap separately while we hung out, watched TV, etc. You cannot beat this location. It is in the heart of downtown, literally everything is just steps away! The beach was walkable, however we drove there daily. We loved also having the parking spot behind the apartment--everything was so convenient! The apartment was much larger than I pictured. The bedrooms were good sized and the living room was huge. The pictures are great but don't do it justice!
We could hear the fountain music nightly but it was never bothersome and would not have been loud enough to wake our son up.
We only had a few things that were considered "downsides": there were no paper towels in the apartment. I didn't see an alternatives like cloth napkins or dish towels either (though there were a few placemats). The back bedroom had bamboo blinds only and when the lights are on, everyone outside can see right in. They also didn't block out the morning light so we woke up pretty early every day. Lastly, there was a picture in the listing for a coffee maker with coffee next to it in a little basket, and when we arrived, I saw the coffee maker... And an empty basket! It wasn't a super big deal, but either me or my husband had to run downstairs and across the street to the little coffee shop every morning to grab coffee. On the upside, we got to try lots of different local coffees--Aldea was our favorite!
The owner was very helpful. We had a slight issue with the people renting the other apartment next to ours having 2 large dogs that were barking a LOT when we first arrived. I texted the owner and she contacted them right away and we didn't have any further problems.
I would definitely stay here again, and hopefully stay for longer next time! This was a great family getaway.
