About the property

3 Bedroom, 1.5 Bathroom With Large Wooded Backyard

7 night minimum required in June through August. $80 cleaning fee applies in summer months.

Our large half acre backyard beckons you to lounge on the patio furniture near large shady trees, roast marshmallows over the fire pit, sip drinks and grill out, all while absorbing the beautiful wooded backdrop and serene natural setting around.

Once inside, the open floor plan, modern kitchen and spacious great room accommodates parties of all size. The main floor also offers a master bedroom, 2 additional bedrooms, full bathroom, a half bathroom, fireplace and laundry facilities for convenient use. High speed WiFi throughout.

You'll find plenty to do in this beautiful area of Holland. Located just 3 blocks from the marina and from the Macatawa public beach and less than 1 mile from Lake Michigan; you can charter/rent a boat for the day, take a swim in the lake, or lay out under the warm sun. At the end of our short street you'll find the bike trail, and a short bike ride will grant you access to the beautiful Holland State Park and public beach.

2 Adult and 2 Kid bikes (16 inch and 20 inch), and a child bike trailer that seats 2 children each under 50 pounds, for your bike ride to the beach or around the neighborhood for your convenience.

An ideal getaway for you year round.

To help keep costs low for our renters we do ask that our guests be respectful of the house and help us keep it nice for other guests.

About April and Pete Sneathen

We love the Holland area with cute shops downtown and great restaurants. We love how close the beach is and the biking trails nearby. Our 2 small boys love the big back yard to play in and sit by the campfire at night.

April and Pete Sneathen purchased this house in 2013

Our Weekend retreat from the world!

  • 5 of 5

While picking our weekend get away, I appreciated the quick, courteous response from the oweners. We weren't sure of our arrival time, so the owners make it possible for quick and easy access by giving us door codes in case we arrived late. I was impressed at the cleanliness and how well stocked the home was. All we had to do was furnish our food. The decor was very warm and "homey" we loved sitting on the couches while the fireplace glowed all evening. We slept so well, the beds were absolutely wonderful and so comfortable! It was so refreshing to walk in and feel just like we were home. One of the high spots for us was the internet TV. How refreshing to have access to such a wide variety of programming on the flatscreen TVs. I would highly recommend this vacation home. It was a wonderful experience from the kindness extended to us by the owners to the beautiful decor, the large backyard complete with lawn furniture, firepit and firewood. We actually have plans to book this home again this winter.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure meeting you both and having you stay in our vacation home. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. It sounds like our decision to purchase high quality mattresses and linens for the beds are providing our guests with a great nights sleep. We also love our large private wooded back yard and have enjoyed time sitting around the fireplace under the star filled night sky. Nothing like roasted marshmallows and s'mores on an autumn night. I'm so glad you enjoyed our Internet streaming TV entertainment system. We have 2 young children, and when we stay in our vacation home, we find that Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu Plus subscriptions provide for a wide variety of entertainment for both adults and kids. We look forward to having you stay at our vacation home again in the near future.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

House was as advertised. Clean looked to be recently remolded. Great location close to everything we wanted to do. Tucked in a nice quiet neighborhood. I would definitely consider staying at the same location in the future.

The house was comfortable, clean and we found everything we needed. The owners were a pleasure to work with. The house has a nice beach cottage feel. We will rent this house again when we return to holland.

The property was just as nice as it was showcased which is not always the case.

  • 4 of 5

Very impressed with the house. It was super clean and perfect for my family. The owner was so helpful, returned my calls and emails right away and a pleasure to work with. I only had a couple of suggestions for her which she thanked me for. It was a wonderful location for all the great things to do in the Holland and surrounding areas. I would definitely rent it again and recommend it to others!

Good vacation spot for your money, no high end amenities, but it offers most of what you need.

  • 4 of 5

This three bedroom house offers very good accommodation for a family with two or three children or two smaller families. The kitchen offers most of what people would need to prepare food and there is a gas grill in the garage which in my opinion was not as clean as we expected. The backyard is fabulous for small children to play and adults to chill out. I would like to see new cushions for the yard furniture as the existing ones have not been washed in a while and we personally did not feel comfortable using them.

Overall a very well maintained and clean home in a quiet neighborhood 2.5 miles away from the beach. Walking back and forth to the beach is easy if you so desire and there is a nearby store where you would find most of what you might have left behind.

The downside of the home's perfect upkeep is the fact that if you have small children they are very likely to break, scratch, stain something and making sure this does not happen becomes a vacation spoiler for the parents. I feel single couples or ones with teenagers would find this as a perfect getaway.

Owner's Response: For future renters, We always appreciate feedback, as it allows us to enhance future renter's stays in our vacation rental home. So the following is intended to let future renters know what we have done, or are in the process of doing, to enhance your vacation experience. Proximity to the Lake - We are 1.4 miles from the Holland State Park and Lake Michigan. There is also a public beach off the Northern tip of Lake Macatawa that is approx. 3 blocks from our home. Both are in walking distance. We also provide renters with bikes to ride to the beach. Gas Grill - The gas grill does get dirty after only a few uses, so we will make a best-effort-attempt to clean the grill, as needed. Outdoor furniture cushions - Like anyone who has outdoor furniture with cushions, the cushions will get dirty over time. So we are taking action to professionally clean these in the very near future and at the beginning of each rental season. Our home is very Kid Friendly - We take every effort to make our home kid friendly. Examples include, but are not limited to us providing a pack-n-play, highchair, kids toys, kid friendly movies, board games, bikes, children's bike trailer and night lights. We do keep the home very clean, but a clean home should not detract from children feeling at home in our vacation rental. In fact, the number one comment we get (outside of how clean we keep our vacation rental home) is how kid friendly our home is. We have two small boys ourselves, and they both love to stay in this vacation rental home. Both our boys refer to the rental as the Holland 'home' rather than the Holland 'house' or Holland 'rental'. Out of the mouth of babes... :) I hope this helps future renters with insight into the steps we have already taken and those we are taking, to ensure your stay will be a great one.
