About Robb Baar
GRAND RAPIDS VACATION HOMES Hi, we are Janessa & Robb Baar. We started renting out our house after we were transferred to Minnesota for work. The feedback we received from our guests about staying in our home compared to traditional vacation rentals was awesome! They loved the amenities, decorations, and how well stocked it was. We have since purchased three other homes. We take the same great care in every detail of all our homes, including bedding, decorations, cookware, and furniture. We enjoy traveling and always stay in vacation rentals when possible so we can get even more ideas on what to do and not to do with our own homes. When we travel we enjoy fishing and recently started Scuba diving in addition to snorkeling. We enjoy being outdoors and taking walks with our pugs Elias and Kandi. We were born and raised in West Michigan and most of our family still lives there. I (Robb) am a financial adviser helping clients find the most efficient way to pay the least amount for college and maximize cash flow during retirement. My wife, Janessa, works as a personal stylist and organizer helping women dress for their body type and maximize space while minimizing clutter. She has a passion for helping animals and is working on starting a non-profit to help the stray and starving dogs in Roatan, Honduras. Stay in touch and take a bit of your stay with you by following us on social media: Facebk: Grand Rapids Vacation Homes Instagrm: @grandrapidsvacationhomes Twttr: @GRvacationhomes

Great house, would love to see it in the summer. No complaints
Thanks Mark! It is gorgeous in the summer, with the pool obviously being the main highlight. Hope you can make it back in the summer.
I met four buddies in Grand Rapids for a Golf Weekend. The house had plenty of room to gather or find your own space if needed. The beds were comfortable. It was nice having a gas grill and a fire pit. The area was peaceful but close enough to Grand Rapids you could do whatever you wanted. We had everything we needed.
Thanks Wesley! A lot of our guests appreciate how spread out the home is so everyone can have their own space but also have room to interact and spend time together. Hope you got in some good rounds at the local golf courses!
Great spot for family gathering
Our family from across the country ised this property as we were all in town for a wedding in Grand Rapids. The kids loved the pool, the yard, the volleyball. Adults loved the deck. Everything was clean and the property manager was super attentive to our needs.
Thanks Mary Jo! We truly believe we have the best manager in the business! Glad everyone had a great time and enjoyed everything.
Beautiful house. Lots of room and everything you could have ever needed came with this rental. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone looking to stay in this area.
Thanks Amanda! We're glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and appreciated the amenities. We'd love to have you back anytime!
House is exactly as advertised, well stocked, very clean. We had 16 golfers and we had plenty of room! The pool is a huge bonus coming back to the house after golf. A LOT of golf courses nearby to be played and we’re planning our 2020 trip back next year. Convenient store just around the corner, pizza place, great area. Love it!
Thanks Chris! Glad you enjoyed some of the area's awesome golf courses as well as the house! Many groups say they're surprised that they can comfortably fit 14-18 people without feeling like they're on top of each other. Looking forward to you return trip!
This home was a perfect spot for our family! The house is so well laid out and furnished, we couldn't have asked for more! The kitchen is so complete, the pool is a perfect size for families, the deck was terrific for our sunny afternoons, and bedrooms were exactly as we had hoped for. Thanks for making this home available and making it so easy to move into, relax, and have fun.
Thanks Margaret! We are glad everything worked so well for your family and you were able to cook together and enjoy the pool. We hope you can come back soon!
