Perfectly and centrally located in the convenient Midtown neighborhood. Walk, bike or drive to everything!!

We took the last few months to restore this 1920's gem into a modern, upscale version of it former glory with warm, handsome decorations that compliment its already stately space.
The living spaces offer a HUGE room sizes with exceptional furnishings. The living room boasts all-leather furniture (including a u-shaped sectional sofa and two comfy reading chairs), 50" Smart Tv (capable of streaming Netflix, Amazon Video, HBO GO and more..) . We have whole-house WiFi
Our large dining room offers seating for eight at a beautiful, Amish-crafted cherry-wood table, a matching buffet table, and small antique desk for when you need to get some work done.
The kitchen is separated from the dining room with the original butler's door, and offers new counter tops, new stainless steel appliances, and original butlers' pantry. Very cool.

The bedrooms feature queen sized beds with new, high-quality, high thread-count linens and large closets with hangers.

I am a West Michigan native who loves taking spaces and making them into inviting and unique homes. I operate several furnished rental properties in the midwest, including Chicago Il, Grand Rapids Mi, and Spring Lake Mi.
Frederick Kidd purchased this apartment in 2014
This one is great. It has all the charm of a 1920's mission-style Craftsman home, but with just enough modern updates to make the space seamless. The location could not be better. This one is my West Michigan home when I'm not traveling or working in Chicago.
- Perfect location
- Big, comfortable spaces.
- Equipped with just about everything you need to simply live and enjoy your time.
Our stay here was most enjoyable. The property was clean and quiet, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well-stocked, and best of all it is within walking distance of many restaurants, antique stores, brew pubs, coffee shops, pizzerias, etc. It is also located very near routes 196 and 131 for those occasions when we chose to drive (e.g., Meijer Gardens is only 5 miles away).
We were planning an almost month long trip to Grand Rapids, which makes choosing a place to stay sight unseen even more daunting. From the moment we arrived here everything met or exceeded my expectations. Driving into the neighborhood I knew we'd hit the "jack-pot"..adjacent to beautiful heritage homes, walking distance to one of Grand Rapids treasures "Martha's Vineyard" a neighborhood corner store that offers specialty wine, gourmet food, deli, pizza, and is open daily until midnight. Several parks and four thriving business districts that make up "Uptown" and you still haven't had to use a car. Downtown Grand Rapids is literally down the street and the homes location is also freeway close so travel to anywhere outside the area or to the airport is convenient and easy. All of this without the "perfect" home would still be enough for a great review, but for someone like me who appreciates a good interior aesthetic more than most, I have to say that the owner Frederick did an amazing job. Its exactly as described, an upscale restored Craftsman style home with every attention to detail taken care of. It's the perfect amount of space, the kitchen and bathroom are both modern and high-end, and even someone not usually a fan of this style home would be impressed. I feel fortunate that we were able to call this place home, which is exactly what it felt like after almost a month! Frederick was awesome to work with, the neighbors became friends and when we left I could only hope that we hadn't overstayed our welcome and would be allowed back :). This is the home you want to stay in, in the neighborhood you want to be in, the next time you come to Grand Rapids.
The 2nd floor unit has nice furniture and beautiful wood floors, trim and doors. The furniture is high quality and comfortable. Air conditioning made my summer visit comfortable. The kitchen is equipped with nice cookware. I loved having a basement laundry room.
The neighborhood is friendly and shared with beautiful trees. It was a $5.00 Uber ride to downtown. There are 2 Family Value grocery stores close by negating the necessity to get on the inter-state and find a Meijer Store. I found Mr. Kidd to be accommodating and helpful. This unit met my needs while attending a conference downtown.
I have no complaints about the property. It was as described - clean, neat, and well maintained. The apartment is in a nice, safe area. Close to restaurants and shops.
Be aware though, if you need anything from the owner, good luck. He's rude and not helpful. Would never rent from this person again.
Frederick was wonderful to work with. He does vet his occupants prior to renting which I completely understand. The apartment has lots of charm and the photos are accurate. Lots of extra little details that make the stay very nice. The beds were very comfy! The location is premium as I love Brewery Vivant which was very close. I will stay here again sometime in the future!!
