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.

Very Nice Spot

  • 4 of 5

This is a great house in a wonderful spot on Lake Michigan. Amazing to find a house without a ton of stairs down to the beach - the patio leads you to a gradual slope to the beach. Very accessible for older people. Kitchen was completely stocked - every detail covered. All utensils, pots, etc. Even a couple of pantry items that you don't want to have to buy for the small amount you will need! Kids had tons of fun in the sand and water even though it was chilly and grown ups enjoyed the fire inside and on the beach. Lovely patio!

Awesome View!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was great. It comfortably accommodated our group of 12, (could have slept more). The best stocked VRBO I have stayed at yet. Everything you could think of, just bring clothes and food. Kitchen literally had everything.Tons of toys, books, and games. Beach toys, beach chairs, boogie boards, and ect... So much to do in that area. It has an amazing view of the lake and Grand Haven pier. Awesome patio, with lots of seating.Quiet neighborhood, neat restaurants nearby. Must eat at the Kirby house! Great food. Owner was very pleasant, was easy to get ahold of. We even had an incident arise, and she handled it very professionally, was very understanding. Would 100% recommend this place. Hoping we can come back someday....

Amazing Private Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing!! We had such a great, relaxing trip. The view and privacy of the beach and bonfire area was really nice. The homeowners had everything that we needed already at the house (from kitchen utensils to beach chairs to boogie boards) and were really great to work with. Very flexible and helpful with everything. Can’t wait to come back again!!!! Thank you!

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.
