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'.

This condo was fantastic and in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls weekend away and had the opportunity to stay in the Florida Haven. It was a beautiful condo. The views of the water from the top floor was very nice. Being able to park the car Friday when we arrived and just walk everywhere until Sunday was a nice treat. It's a 5 minute walk to get to all of the great shops, restaurants and bars in downtown Grand Haven and 10-15 to get to the lighthouse. The owners have thought of everything; chairs and cooler to the beach, spare toiletries, and activities for rainy days.

We are all hoping to return again next summer!

Perfect grand haven rental

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but great things to say about not only this rental property, but the owner of this property. Lynn (Madeline) is the owner of this rental and is so pleasant to work with. My husband and I stayed here for our wedding with the best man, his wife and their newborn baby. Everyone enjoyed how spacious the place was, well equipped and clean. It's about three blocks from all the shops and a block from the harbor. We enjoyed walking to breakfast and sitting on the patio listening to the musical fountain. You won't be disappointed. We are hoping to stay here again soon.

Very nice condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for 3 nights. It was a great condo and was stocked with almost everything we needed. The kitchen had everything needed for a meal, there were plenty of linens, some books and beach toys for kids, and even a welcome basket from the owners. I forgot my hairdryer and that was about the only thing not in the house, but that gave me a reason to relax with a ponytail for a few days! It is within walking distance to most everything and right across from the fountain. You can't quite see the fountain at night from the condo, but you can definitely hear it! We even parked our car in the garage. If we come to the area again, we would stay here.

A wonderful family retreat in Grand Haven, MI

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the Florida Haven in Grand Haven, MI. As the owner describes, you really can just park your car in the garage and leave it there. We walked nearly everywhere, with the property being just a stone's throw from all of the downtown shopping and eateries, ice cream shops, the musical fountain show, farmer's market and Grand Haven State Park beach. We took advantage of all of it during our stay. The property was equipped with almost everything that we needed in order to be comfortable during our week long stay. Beautifully, casually decorated, immaculately clean, and comfortable for our family of four (two adults, two small children). The Grand Haven location also provided an easy jumping off point for some quick day trips to charming nearby Douglas/Saugatuck, and also to Grand Rapids. We would highly recommend this property for your Lake Michigan vacation!

  • 4 of 5

It was beautiful place. I loved that is was walking distance to restaurants and soccer in the sand for my son. We will be back. Hopefully if we stay longer than three nights, there can be a discount.

Florida Haven has been a wonderful Grand Haven winter rental for our 9 month stay. The Townhouse is brand new, bright, and beautiful. The place is completely furnished. The living area is cozy with a fireplace. There is a small sunny deck just outside to relax, and enjoy a cup of coffee. It has plenty of storage, a separate laundry room, and suite like rooms upstairs with comfortable beds. The master has a spacious bathroom and walk-in closet. The musical fountain can be seen from the second bedroom. The townhouse is 3 stories high and all the sights and sounds of Grand Haven are seen and heard from the many windows and deck of this unit. There are views of the channel, fireworks, and night sounds of the musical fountain that just add to the fun we never knew existed living downtown. Run out to catch a breathtaking sunset or join the crowds like we did to see the 30 foot waves at the pier on a stormy day; it doesn't get much better! The boardwalk is just across the street. It's just a short block to specialty shops, restaurants, and don't forget to get a famous turtle sundae from Dairy Creme at Chinook Pier. Our favorite weekend meal was to walk just around the corner to pick up a huge wet burrito from the tip-a-few. We would recommend the townhouse for anyone who wants to be a part of the winter or summer action here in Grand Haven or just to relax. The location is perfect and you will love this place! It has been a joy to stay here and we are so thankful to the owners for going above and beyond. Thanks so much for an unforgettable experience and incredible stay here in your new boardwalk townhouse Florida Haven Unit B.

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.
