Yia Yia's Cottage is a newly renovated 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom Grand Haven cottage. Located on Grand Haven's exclusive Harbor Drive (known locally as 'The Strip'), this Cottage has front-deck views of the Grand Haven Channel/Board Walk and second-floor-deck views of Lake Michigan and the Grand Haven Lighthouse.
Yia Yia's Cottage sits at the base of a dune with walking access to Grand Haven's many attractions: 1/2 mile walk to downtown Grand Haven (The Kirby, Musical Fountain, etc.), 40 yards to the Channel/Board Walk, and 600 yards to Lake Michigan.
The second floor of the Cottage has a wrap-around deck accessible from the spacious master bedroom. The second floor has three bedrooms, the master (with a king size bed) and two others (each with a full size bed). The main floor has a fourth bedroom (with two twin beds and two sets of bunk beds).
The main floor also has an entertaining area (with a flat screen TV) and large, open kitchen. The Cottage has 4 parking spaces.
We rented Yia Yia's out for a long weekend to celebrate a special Birthday. The cottage truly felt like home immediately and was exactly as advertised. The location was ideal - we could see the lighthouse from the property and it was a very short walk to the beach and into the town. The bedrooms were spacious, there was enough room for 8 adults to sleep comfortably. The house was clean and well equipped with everything we needed for the long weekend. We had brought some of our own kitchen utensils but could have done without in the end. There were lots of blankets, sheets, and pillows all over the house to make the stay comfortable. The property manager was helpful and responded quickly to any questions! Overall a great experience, we can't wait to return to Yia Yia's in the summer.
Yia Yia's Cottage was a perfect destination for our family gathering. This home is not only spacious but very accommodating to any needs one may have; it is well stocked, clean and comfortable. The location could not have been better - the boardwalk is truly right across the street and the beach is just a brief few minute walk away! We also enjoyed the Grand Haven shops which were less than a mile down the road. My husband and I thoroughly relaxed while on a sunset sailboat cruise with the Wind Dancer; again, very close... sailed right by the house as it made its way to Lake Michigan. We appreciated the ease and care of Martina and John, our 'landlords'; they were attentive and prompt with any communication that needed to take place. Many, many thanks to Yia Yia's Cottage for a memorable vacation stretching four generations!
This was the 2nd year we had a girls getaway weekend at Yia Yia's cottage. This place has great living space. Enough sleeping for the 12 of us to feel comfortable and not crowded.
The location of this cottage is the best. Once we park on Thursday evening we never moved our cars until we left on Sunday. The Board walk is right across the street, which you can take to the left for the beach and pier, or go to the right for a short walk to town. We also walked to the water fountain light show.
We plan on coming back at least one more time. I would love to rent this sometime in the summer for a family gathering.
This house is AMAZING!!!! The location is excellent, close to everything. We did not want to leave!! My whole family agreed that we were ready to move in. The home is extremely spacious & cozy at the same time. Everything you need is there. We got home yesterday, & we're ready to go back NOW! David is wonderful to work with & very pleasant. Wish we could have turned the clocks back a few days, instead of just an hour.
My family and I really enjoyed our time here. What a great place to create memories for my graduation, which acted as a family reunion. David was very helpful through the process and was very flexible with our needs. Wish we could live there! My little niece and nephew loved it. Hoping to make a reservation in the future!!!
Everyone that stayed at the Yia Yia's cottage had a great time. Four girlfriends had three nights of gab sessions and drank coffee on the porch every morning, five sisters spent two nights catching up with their family news, the kids and grandkids spent three days swimming, flying kites, playing games, and walking everywhere.
The weather was great, water was warm (for lake Michigan) and the Mulligans Hollow playground was awesome.
We want to return next Labor Day to do it again.
