We had a great time. It was hard to leave Grand Haven for the functions. Thanks for throwing in the side walk sale. Everyone left a little cash behind for the merchants.

We loved our stay in this beautiful condo! It was so very clean, modern, well equipped with everything needed, roomy and has lots of natural light. The large patio was great. Location, Location, Location!! So close to downtown, parks, Lake Michigan, the State Park, beaches-everything within walking distance. It was very quiet and relaxing. The owner was so pleasant and helpful while working through the rental process also. We highly recommend this condo and would stay there again and again. Couldn't have asked for a better experience! Susie and family

Perfect location for a week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

The property is in the perfect location for walking to the downtown restaurants, the beach and to take coffee across the road to the boardwalk in the morning. It worked well when we had the family there for a few days and the deck was perfect for a larger family cookout. You'll need to make a Meijer or Walgreen run as there were only toiletries in one of the showers (soap and shampoo), also we had to buy a wine opener for the week. It's a comfortable space and except for a squeaky trundle bed the sleeping arrangements worked wonderfully. This was our second stay in one of these condos and undoubtedly we'll be back!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. We did have a nice wine opener there. Thanks for letting me know it was missing. Hope to see you again. Best, Madeline

Perfectly beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four spent a long weekend here and it was perfect! The condo was just as pictured and beautiful. The location couldn't be better, walking distance to all downtown shopping and restaurants.

The Grill Room is a definite recommendation, as is the Pump House.

We will definitely be back again!!
