About Madeline Deetjen, Owner; book with owner 954 461 6053 email

Florida Haven Cottage is one of 4 townhomes we built in 2015. Originally it was a small cottage and we demolished it to build this beautiful townhome development. We love Grand Haven with the fabulous waterfront. We can walk everywhere since it is located 1 house away from Harbor Drive, the famous Boardwalk, and all things 'Grand Haven'.

Incredible Location and Comfort

  • 5 of 5

This was a fabulous property. The home was spacious, comfortable, and full of all the amenities you would need for an extended stay. The location was perfect. 5 minute walk to everything downtown and 15 min walk to the pier. Madeline, the property owner, was great to work with. We had a great time.

Perfect Location...Right in the Center of Town

  • 5 of 5

Florida Haven was lovely spot for our 9-day stay in Grand Haven. We cooked in a lot and loved the location for walking into town and crossing the street for the crazy fountain show. Having a garage was wonderful, keeping the bikes and car off the street. Madeline rocks.

Absolute best location and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

I need to start off by saying I was so impressed by the home owner, Madeline, in how quickly she always responded to our questions from the moment we began looking for a rental, to deciding to stay in her home, and finally in making our stay the best ever. The house is totally updated, clean and beautiful and relaxing. You can even see the water out a few of the windows. The location was perfect and we could easily and quickly walk to many of our destinations. Having a garage was the best! We will definitely recommend this location to friends and family!! It was our first time to Grand Haven and this vacation rental was one of the best parts of our trip! Thanks Madeline!!

Perfect Family Vacation Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival, Madeline our kind hostess, had a nice gift basket to welcome us to her beautifully appointed cottage. From the great beach vibe to the views of the Grand River boardwalk from several windows, you could not ask for a nicer rental experience. The cottage is super clean and convenient to walk to the town's "must see" attractions, shopping, restaurants and of course - the beach! If you are looking for a great town to unwind, relax and enjoy time with your family or friends, I highly recommend this cottage to serve as your home away from home. Thanks Madeline for a perfect beginning to end rental experience!

The Grand Haven Trolley gives a wonderful tour of the waterfront area. It makes stops along the way and can take you to the beach. It travels along Harbor Drive which is just a few steps from our property. Just hail it and it will stop and pick you up.

Walk across the street with a blanket or a couple of bag chairs and watch the boats and the musical fountain every night. There are bike rental and water sport rentals close by as well.
