About Karen

We live in Grand Rapids and have traveled up and down the Lake Michigan coastline for years. We fell in love with Grand Haven.

Karen purchased this house in 2014

Why Karen chose Western Michigan

We chose this property because it is literally in the heart of Grand Haven. You can just park your car in the garage and walk everywhere. It is a half mile to the Grand Haven State Park. A nice stroll to the lighthouse. Everyone loves to walk, bike or run to the lighthouse. Great restaurants and an ice cream store are a few steps away. The musical fountain is just across the street and the hot tub built into the deck and fenced yard offer privacy.

What makes this house unique

You can not beat the views and location of this house. The interior is very unique, log cabin interior, stone fireplace and stone walk in shower. The hot tub built into the deck is an added bonus.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the home very much! The home was very clean and in an amazing location. Thanks Again!

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed with a group of girlfriends for a weekend away. The house was perfect for 10 of us and it was great to have 3 bathrooms. It's right on the water and walking distance to everything. We'll definitely be back!

Hard to say goodbye!

  • 5 of 5

This house is awesome. The decor is tasteful and very thoughtfully put together, the house was nice and clean and all set for our stay. The location is fantastic as indicated and we will rent this property again. I cannot say enough - the pictures are a good representation of this nautically themed and inspiring house! It was hard to say good-bye.

Beautiful home in a great location - loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our family's annual summer vacation. We've rented homes in different areas and we all agree - this was our favorite! The home is beautiful and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The front balcony rocks - it has a wonderful view of the water and we really enjoyed it. It was a great spot to catch up on my book while my toddler napped. The location of the house is really perfect. It allowed everyone to do what they wanted without having to get in the car. In the morning, I would take the kids for a walk along the water, some play time in the fountain, and a snack at one of the local shops before they headed to the beach for the afternoon. After the kids went to bed, a couple of us could run to the Dairy Treat (200 feet away!) and bring back ice cream for the group. The location made everything so easy. It was an awesome set up for the adults and kids in our family. Everyone loved it and it was the perfect place for an awesome family vacation. We will definitely be back!

Spectacular home! Fantastic Location! LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this vacation home. We had such an incredible experience here. When we opened the door upon our arrival, it was way beyond our expectations. It is absolutely beautiful! It is beautiful in the pictures, and it is even more incredible in person. It has everything that you could possibly need for a great week in Grand Haven, including beach towels, comfortable beach chairs, and even sand toys. We had 9 people staying there in our family, and we had plenty of space for everyone. Upon arrival, we had a welcome basket waiting for us with all kinds of 4th of July goodies, and it was such a nice added touch that we had never experienced before in any rental (and we have had many). As far as cleanliness, I am SUPER picky, and this house was really clean and comfortable. The location is perfect! You are just steps away from Pronto Pup, the Dairy Treat, Snug Harbor/Jelly's, and so much more. The trolley and boardwalk are both very accessible, and the shopping is so close. You can walk everywhere or grab the trolley, if needed. The washer/dryer is great to have, and the garage is also an added perk. They even have a foot washing area at the front of the garage to easily rinse any sand off your feet after a day at the beach. The hot tub on the back deck was great at the end of the day. I just can't say enough about the layout, the decor, the location, the amenities, and the comfort of this home. Our whole family felt at home instantly, and we loved it! When we arrived on the 4th, we got settled and simply walked right down the street to enjoy the fireworks. You can't go wrong with this vacation home. My sister and I both said that we would love to live in a home like this one. We spent so much time hanging out with our family on that wonderful front deck. You could not ask for more from a vacation home in Grand Haven! We had an amazing time! The property management company was wonderful to work with, as well. My husband had left behind his laptop charger, and they were able to mail it out to us right away. Thank you to the owners and Capstone Management for an incredible vacation for our family. We hope to visit again sometime! This vacation home created many happy memories for our entire family. Thank you again for everything!!
