About the property

Zero Edge Pool and Built-in Hot Tub Seemingly "Spill" into Lake Michigan.

Perched high on a bluff overlooking an infinity pool, hot tub, and the property’s own private beach, this newly built, clean, modern home offers two of its four levels as some of the finest vacation accommodations anywhere. Avoid the crowds, escape to this peaceful retreat, and let the stresses of everyday life slip off your sun-kissed shoulders.

Saunter down to the white “sugar sands” and dip your toes in water that stretches for as far as the naked eye can see in this "Key West of the Midwest" paradise. Lounge on the grand patio and become entranced by the infinity pool as its waters seemingly spill into the vast blue beyond. After a long day of leisure, soak away what little cares remain in the hot tub at sunset, or watch your favorite show in your room on a high definition television. Drift off to sleep in the afterglow of a perfect day, under the gentle breeze of the ceiling fan and wrapped snugly in luxurious bedding. In the morning, turn the knob on your suite’s wall for some easy listening music to set the mood for the day and greet it gracefully.

This property sleeps up to ten on two levels:

Level 1: Suite 1/Low Tide Suite (295 sq. ft.) - 2 in a king-size bed

Level 2: Suite 2/Neap Tide Suite (300 sq. ft.) - 2 in a king-size bed, 2 in twin bunk beds

Level 2: Suite 3/High Tide Suite (340 sq. ft.) - 2 in a king-size bed, 2 in twin bunk beds

Extended families enjoy this destination for its separate levels because each level has a kitchen. It gives them a sense of independence while still coming together as a family for vacation. Grandparents generally take the Low Tide (Level 1) Suite, as they have the first level mostly to themselves. The first level is also often where everyone comes together to enjoy meals at the dining table overlooking the pool and the lake.

On the second level, each of the two suites accommodates any combination of 4 adults and/or children. Typically, parents sleep together on the king-size beds and children sleep on the sturdy bunk beds that are rated to hold up to 300 lbs. per person. On this level, sunset is the perfect time to sit on the deck or on the large sofa in the solarium to take in the magnificence of nature.

All the suites have in-room full bathrooms with one additional full bathroom on the pool (1st) level. The largest suite (High Tide on Level 2) has its own infrared sauna designed to release the toxins from your body, as well as a jetted steam shower with a foot massager to spoil you. Each suite has its own computer with high speed internet access, individual temperature controls, spacious closets, ceiling fan, HD TV, and much more.

Complimentary Keurig coffee is a good way to start the day as you prepare your breakfast in a fully stocked kitchen with range/oven, microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator/freezer with filtered water in the door. Eat your meals alfresco on the second level deck, by the pool, or dine indoors at one of two cozy kitchen nooks for four. After breakfast, surf some suggested web pages for local attractions on your suite’s computer, write an e-mail to your loved ones to tell them how relaxed and happy you are, or check the weather forecast: sunny and satisfied.

One aspect families appreciate about this well-designed vacation rental is the upgraded safety feature of the property, as it is protected by a commercial-grade fire/sprinkler system that will notify a monitoring company 24/7 in the event of an emergency. This is the only rental property on Holland’s beach that offers this level of protection for your family.

Each suite is accessible by its own private entrance, separate from each other and the owner’s levels. For your comfort and convenience, each suite is zoned independently for heating and cooling, with its own temperature controls. The suites also have mini refrigerators, irons and ironing boards, safes, beach and bath towels, towel warmers, complementary robes for two, toiletries, fold-out/rollaway cots (available upon request), and more.

If you think Lake Michigan vacationing is only for the summer, think again, as magnificent views can be witnessed comfortably from our hot tub in the spring and fall, as well.

About Jerry

Jerry and Jamie love to travel, explore unfamiliar cultures, and meet new people from around the world. They're dedicated to providing you with the best vacation experience in their newly constructed beach home.

Jerry purchased this house in 2015

Why Jerry chose Holland

This property had the best of everything. The white sand beaches are some of the finest in the world and Lake Michigan appears to be an ocean it's so large (110 miles across at the widest point). The 2009 Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index found that the city of Holland was the second happiest city in the nation. There are golf courses, wineries, gourmet food, and just about any water sport that you could imagine making it one of the best summer vacation spots anywhere.

What makes this house unique

Sitting in the heated pool or hot tub while the bright red rays of the sun light up the clouds and the horizon is an experience that will etched into your memory. It's a reverence for the majesty of nature that transcends your every day cares, leaving an overwhelming feeling of tranquility and peace.

A very impressive and clean home with well thought out features throughout. Loved the height of the ceilings with the large windows. The pool and spa are awesome. We really enjoyed staying at Jerry's place, him and his wife are very friendly.

Amazing family rental with gorgeous lakefront views and infinity pool

  • 5 of 5

We have rented many different lakefront and oceanfront homes with our family and this home is by far our favorite rental. The infinity pool and hot tub are amazing! The private beach was so much fun for the kids. This home has everything a family could want and more! Not to mention that the owners are the nicest and most accommodating of any property owners we have met. We received a personal tour when we arrived and they were always available if we had any questions. We will definitely be back!! Thanks Jerry & Jamie!

A must read review

  • 5 of 5

I am an executive who came in from Chicago and did not know what to expect. The reviews and pictures looked good - maybe too good. All I can say is that this ended up being the best vacation my family and I ever had. The property is much nicer than the pictures. I have been blessed to stay in the best properties across the globe but I can safely say this one measures up to any. The couple times we bumped into Jerry and Jamie were a pleasure to us, and quite frankly after meeting them I wish we could have seen them more. But, they respected out privacy and were invisible. My adult kids will join us again and as often as we can make it to this property. For any price it has to be one of (if not the) nicest properties on the lake.

Property has its own private beach

If there is anything more alluring than a beach in the summertime, it’s a private beach on a private estate. Thousands of years ago, glaciers carved out what is now Lake Michigan leaving behind fresh water for as far as the eye can see. Clear water laps up against magnificent sugar sand shores in this barefoot paradise.

In the dramatic dunes not far from the shoreline state parks of Saugatuck, Grand Haven, and Holland sets luxurious accommodations that overlook the breathtaking majesty of water and sky. Nothing can be more soothing than a dip in the infinity pool perched high on a dune bluff as the water seemingly spills over into the blue beyond. At night, amidst the backdrop of countless stars, a soak in the hot tub makes the burdens of everyday life seem light years away. This precious property is a romantic retreat that promises to put you back in touch with life as it was meant to be.
