About the property

4 bedrooms plus large sleeping loft, sleeps 15!

This retreat/vacation home is across the street from Tunnel Park and Lake Michigan. A five minute walk will have your toes in the water or listen to the waves from the large, wrap-around deck. After a day at the beach, relax and enjoy the home's amenities in the finished garage (foosball) or visit downtown Holland with its impressive array of restaurants, pubs, art galleries, shopping, and theatres. The home is minutes away from beaches, tennis courts, golf, fishing, and hiking/biking trails.

The furnished home has an open concept design, with a large communal family room and kitchen, but also provides individual space and many different sleeping options. Two bedrooms and adjacent bathroom are located on the lower floor with two more bedrooms (+ bathroom) on the main floor. A sleeping loft includes bunk beds, futon, and day bed. Other home features include the finished garage, laundry room, and large deck equipped with deck furniture and gas grill.

Want stuff to do?: Too many to give a complete list, but area attractions include beaches, downtown Holland (with wonderful restaurants/pubs, galleries, and shopping), local farmer’s market, boating, fishing, golfing, tennis, the Tulip Time Festival (May), and much, much more.

About Rachel DeBoer

Matt and Rachel grew up in Holland. Matt staying in the area after graduation to attend Hope College. Employment took us to Washington State, where we have lived for 13 years with our 3 adorable daughters. We love to come home to visit Holland and our extended family. We found the perfect house on the nation's third coast to share with others.

Rachel DeBoer purchased this house in 2010

Why Rachel DeBoer chose Western Michigan

After looking at properties for two years we were excited to see this property, our house, come on the market. This is a great house for big groups to get together in and also adjacent to our favorite Holland beach (Tunnel Park).

What makes this house unique

Walking into the shared living space made me fall in love with this house. The vaulted ceilings and huge fans keep the house light and airy in the summer. While the shared kitchen, living and dining space keep the family connected while meals are prepared, people watch TV and play games at the table. The wrap around porch that has portions in the sun and shade makes a great place to lounge on sunny days.

Perfect vacation house/location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week at this house and it was the perfect house/location for our vacation. The house has a great layout for a larger group. 4 bedrooms (plus the loft) easily accommodated our group. We loved the open living room and kitchen area because it allowed everyone to spend time together. There was a ping pong table, foosball table, board games, bikes, etc. Because we have young children, I really appreciated the crib, high chair, and baby gates. The best feature of the house is the large wrap around deck. The location was amazing. No need to drive to tunnel beach, you can walk (5 min). You can walk up the park stairs to watch the sunset from the dune (5 min). The owners were very responsive and easy to work with. I highly recommend this house for your Holland vacation.

Even better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the weekend as an end of summer vacation. The owners were very cordial and helpful. The rate was very reasonable. We had 2 families (5 children) and 2 couples. The house couldn't have been more perfect, especially for sleeping arangements. The game room was just perfect, the deck is amazing and the fact that there was wi-fi and cable tv was an added bonus. The house is beautiful; the pictures don't do it justice and the location - right across the street from the beach - can't be beat. Be forewarned, however, the hill to and from the beach is killer! Unless you're in amazing shape I recommend the tunnel. :) We would definitely stay here again!
