About Leanne Crowell

I have lived near Lake Michigan now for about 30 years, moving hear from Grand Rapids, MI. I find it hard to imagine not being near the beach at this point. Grand Rapids is a nice city but living near the water offers a peace that can't be duplicated, and it's free! My husband has lived his entire life in this area and runs his own company in Muskegon. I am able to do bookkeeping and property management from my home or if lucky enough from a warm sunny spot near our many friends we have acquired in Florida.

Leanne Crowell purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Leanne Crowell chose Western Michigan

In 2000 my husband and I purchased this building on the main street of Downtown Grand Haven so that I could open a boutique and live a personal dream of having my own business. I chose Grand Haven for a few good reasons. 1) It was close to home. 2) Grand Haven was a perfect small town. It had the right mix of people and they loved and supported their town. 3) Grand Haven was my favorite place to spend my free time.

It seemed a perfect spot to build and business and a sense of community. My experience was wonderful and a dream come true. I was welcomed with open arms by locals and other business owners and soon became knitted into the community. This experience has left me only wanting to make it a better place. I no longer run my boutique, I left that behind after

10 years so that my husband and I could travel more freely, mostly in the winter :) but I still own this wonderful property and find Grand Haven a great investment. I rent out the boutique below and the apartment above is still a vacation apartment for guests to enjoy. My husband and I live close by and are very hands on, we think of our apartment as our possible summer home if we ever make the move to become regular snow birds and let go of our own home on the lake. I hope you enjoy our apartment for it was a dream come true for me and will always be a blessing in our lives.

What makes this apartment unique

Although I have never made this apartment our home, we have stayed there quite a bit. I think what I love about it is that it has so many conveniences. I love that the businesses Downtown are still family owned and operated. Many of them have raised their families right at work, making all of us extended family. People are friendly and helpful. It is the kind of town that makes you feel safe and cared about. I always meet visitors who are returning because they grew up vacationing in Grand Haven and want to keep the tradition going. Grand Haven is a slice of the American Dream.

Awesome Location, Beautiful Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent our honeymoon in this fantastic condo. We walked in and it looked exactly like it does in the pictures. The owner was great in all communications and she was extremely helpful and nice. It was so nice having a washer and dryer in the condo! We were so sad to leave the place where we had such a relaxing week. I have been going to Grand Haven all my life, but I have never stayed in town. I absolutely loved it! It was so great that all the action was just a short walk away. We walked to the pier almost every night to watch the beautiful sunsets. Every morning, I'd walk to a great coffee shop with extremely friendly staff. And of course, we could easily walk to get ice cream or grab a Pronto Pup. We cannot wait to go back and I will definitely tell everyone about this condo.

Fabulous place in the heart of everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at this condo. The location cannot be beat. Walk to everything. It was very quiet, clean, wide open interior, private, easy parking right out back. Loved the decor and layout of the home, bedrooms in the back, huge outdoor rear patio, floor to ceiling windows in the front. Very comfortable and inviting space. We happen to be there during the downtown arts festival, great weather all weekend. Highly recommend this deluxe condo for your next trip to Grand Haven. Our first trip to Grand Haven and certainly not our last!

The listing description was accurate and we discovered so much more once we arrived that made the trip even more enjoyable.

The property was very clean and well maintained. No issues at all.

The owner was easy to communicate with, very pleasant experience.

Yes, definitely recommend to friends and family. We will be back again.

There is so much to do in the area. Musical fountain, YMCA playground, beach, lighthouse, community events/activities, splash pad, harbor, fishing boats rentals, boutiques, restaurants. Places to explore in towns right next to GH. Really a fun area.

Wonderful location to experience Grand Haven!

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay at the Beach town Apartment. All my siblings gathered in Grand Haven where my brother lives to celebrate his retirement and 4th of July. My sister and I stayed at the apartment with our dog, Izzo. Not only did we love the convenient location in downtown GH and a short 4 block walk to my brother's house where the rest of my family was staying, but Izzo loved to looking down on Washington Ave. What a beautiful place to spend a week with family.

Leanne was very helpful and was able to allow us to drop off our things early so that we could enjoy my brother's retirement dinner without having to worry about unloading late at night. We would recommend this Grand Haven apartment for those wanting easy access to shops, dining, the boardwalk and the beach!

I inquired about Leanne's apartment on a Sunday morning and she contacted me almost immediately to advise the apartment was available for that evening. I was in town for my son's graduation from GVSU and wanted to spend a couple of days in Grand Haven before heading home to California. The apartment was exactly as advertised. If I am ever in Michigan again I would definitely rent this apartment. Thank you Leanne !

Great location and comfortable ammenities

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this 2 bedroom unit. The property was as we expected it to be from the description. The location was perfect, right on the main street with shops and restaurants all around.

The unit was decorated nicely and the bedrooms were comfortable. There were no dressers but some shelving was supplied in the closet so it worked out ok.

The patio at the back of the unit was a nice place to relax after a busy day. Everything was clean and well maintained.

Having the parking space behind the unit with the door access in front was a little inconvenient but we were able to park in front when unloading so it also worked out well.

The price was fair and the overall value was very good. We would definitely recommend this unit and would stay here again!
