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.

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.

Quaint and clean

  • 5 of 5

This house had exactly what we needed and we had no trouble checking in or during our stay. The wifi worked great and there was a nice video set up (we didn't use) so you can be entertained if it's a rainy day. The location is convenient to the beach, but away from the crowd.

A wonderful family getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We booked this house just a couple days before arriving, and we're pleased with the easy, effective communication with the owner and the cleanliness of the home. Many features are updated, such as the beds and bathrooms, just like in the photos. The house beautifully accommodated us 6, and we still could have had a couple more with the sleeper sofa if we wanted. Nice, big backyard was a treat for the kids, and the fire pit was a treat for us all in the evening. A couple suggestions to the owner...get new pillows for the beds (too slim and unsupportive) and install the grill outoors (currently installed inside garage). The grill, which is installed inside the garage, caused a smoky environment. Other than that, truly happy with our stay and will stay here again for sure!

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay and we were happy to accommodate your family on short notice. We are happy to hear that your family of 6 was comfortable in our home. The house only accommodates a maximum of 6 people as we do not have sofa sleepers. Thank you for letting us know about the pillows and we will consider new pillows. We would suggest to our renters that if you have a special need to have supportive pillows that you bring your own from home. While we do have higher end linens, we are not able to meet everyone's needs with varying support for the pillows. Thank you for informing us of the smoke you experienced while grilling. We are currently in process of getting a new grill that can be easily wheeled outside of the garage. Again, we are glad you enjoyed your stay.

A lovely property, in a quiet spot, near a beautiful lake, in a great city!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely, all the bedding and towels were good quality.

Everything was clean tidy and useful. Only issue we had was that the recycling wasn't taken...? We are not sure why as it was put out on the correct day?

All in all a great base for a family trip!
