Outstanding value

  • 5 of 5

I have to agree with other reviews - the location and outdoor patio are excellent for enjoying Lake Michigan. Great beach area at the water's edge. The house worked well for our family of grandparents, married children and two grand children. We had a minor problem when we first arrived. Brenda was on top of it immediately responding to e-mails and texts and working quickly and efficiently to solve the problem. The house is well equipped with everything that you would need to enjoy your stay - well equipped kitchen, great seating areas with enough space for the family to spread out. There are lots of beach toys and chairs. All you need to supply are your food and personal items. We will definitely be back - if there is an opening in the schedule!

Million dollar view!

  • 4 of 5

Our family recently stayed in this house during the Coast Guard festival week.

To say we had a great time would be an understatement.

We had the full, extended family, which consisted of 4 sets of grandparents, 2 kids under 7, 2 aunts, and 1 uncle. There was ample room for all.

We lucked out with blazing hot sun and super warm lake temperatures. We were able to swim nearly all day long and take in the beautiful sunsets at night.

The house is fully stocked with any games, DVDs, and toys any family would need.

Want proof that we loved it? Next year we are coming back for our third consecutive year.

Thanks, Brenda!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Sandcastle is our favorite house! We enjoy the spacious patio area for morning coffee, having dinner then watching the sunset. The house has everything you need and is very comfortable. One of our favorite times was sitting around the table playing games with our adult children and grandchildren. We spent many hours on the beach and playing in the water. We love the location and our favorite restaurant is Morning Star. We are looking forward to our next getaway at this lovely home in 2017. Thank you!

Girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls weekend here at the end of April. Checked in Friday and left Sunday. House was perfect. Beautiful view right on the water. Everything was clean. I highly recommend for a week/weekend get away. Wish it was warm enough to get in the water.

North Shore State Beach, Grand Haven State Park

Lake Michigan is perfect for any lifestyle. Grand Haven pier is visible from the house and private beach. The beach requires no stairs to access. Take long walks on the wide beach and trails, or hop on your bike and take the bike path around Spring Lake, or mountain bike at Hoffmaster Park.

Downtown Grand Haven is a short drive five minute drive away. Enjoy shopping, dining, or the Musical Fountain in the evening. The bustling downtown boardwalk is a great place to take a stroll and stop for ice cream.

North Shore Marina is right down the street, where you can launch your jet skis or boat. It's a short walk to the north pier for fishing. Charter fishing also is available in downtown Grand Haven (book in advance).

West Michigan in know for beautiful golf courses, some very challenging even for the seasoned golfer. Michigan Adventure Amusement Park/Water Park is only a 15 minute drive.
