Why Marc & Patricia Baer chose Holland
Unique is the best descriptor for Idlewood Beach. Imagine a neighborhood with 100 homes and cottages on top of a sand dune. You would have a few minutes' pleasant walk to relaxing on a sandy private beach on America's premier freshwater lake. But you would also be a few minutes drive to great places to dine, shop, attend summer repertory theater, pick blueberries or stroll on the streets of a great small town.

Wonderful location on Lake Michigan
My family and I had a fantastic time at La Casita. Marc and Patty were amazing hosts who were extremely hospitable and responsive. When we arrived there were fresh brownies and chocolate waiting for us. The location is magnificent with only a short stroll to some of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen. I hope to make La Casita and Holland, MI an annual family tradition.
The property was just as expected. Great location! The rental had everything you needed for an enjoyable stay at the lake! We will definitely be back.
This house was just perfect for our stay. The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful. There is a private beach just a short walk up the road. We went there and walked all the way to Tunnel Beach. The house was supplied with everything you need and the new fire pit is awesome. We used it three nights and even cooked hot dogs on it. The deck is lovely, shady and private. We had lunches and breakfasts out there and just sat and relaxed with a glass of wine! Holland is just a short drive away and has unique shopping and breweries which we enjoyed. We even went to the museum and the local park one day before dinner in town. The house had plenty of room for the 6 of us and a Granddaughter. They even let us borrow a high chair. You will not be disappointed with this house and the area. Camy
Great time at La Casita
The property was amazing for our 2 families of 4 adults and 5 children 13 and under. The location was perfect for our families to visit the beach and downtown Holland. With the owners living next door, communication wasn't a problem. We really enjoyed the private beach being so close. Make sure you check out the sunsets! We would definitely visit again!
Very woodsy, beautiful place
Great place for a 2 family stay. Nice house with all the amenities. Nice fire-pit in the woods. Great location nestled in the woods. A walk to the beach. Great area. Perfect getaway escape.
Nice place to stay in Holland
The hosts were very responsive and even provided a pack and play for our grandson. The info provided was accurate, and the house and neighborhood were very nice. The weather was even great. We went to the beach every day and had breakfast one morning at the wonderful Dutch bakery down the street. Thanks!
Thank you Lindsey. We appreciate your kind review. All the best.
