About Norm Donkersloot
We are two transplants to West Michigan who loved it enough to stay for 30 years. A year ago we found a cottage needing a lot of work. We enjoyed the remodeling and the vacation business so much that we bought a second place. Our day jobs are in elementary and graduate education.
Norm Donkersloot purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Norm Donkersloot chose Holland
We both like to bike and we spotted the cottage on a road and trail where we often ride. There is a bike path in the front yard. The cottage is located near the water on a tree lined road.

Wonderful, Relaxing Week
Our week in Western Michigan was wonderful! It was just the place for a relaxing time before heading back to school for a new year. The weather was gorgeous and we thoroughly enjoyed the abundance of biking and walking trails in the Holland area. The cottage was perfect for the two of us, quiet and peaceful.
Nice Relaxing Cottage
We had another relaxing week at the cottage. This is the 3rd year we rented the Cottage and it is a very nice time for us. We look forward to it every year. Nice clean place and well stocked kitchen. It has a shed in back for bikes and beach chairs.
Every thing you need is there. Beaches all close even one in walking distances. Great sunset views from Riley beach. I would highly recommended this home away home!
nice place to stay
We enjoyed our stay at the little cottage, and the neighborhood was very nice. The living room seating was plentiful and very comfortable. The beds are EXTREMELY firm which forced me to sleep on the sofa in the living room. If you plan on cooking make sure you brings any condiments or spices because there are none there to use. There are no clocks in the house. When checking out there is a long list of cleaning expected including stripping and washing bed linens and mopping and vacuuming floors beyond the usual wiping the counters, doing dishes, sweeping floor and taking out the trash.
Overall it was a nice place and very economical.
HI- Thanks for your comments. We do have salt and pepper, and a few other spice left by other guests. Sorry you didn't see them. There is also a clock on the microwave, refrigerator and an alarm clock in the smaller bedroom. In order to keep costs down for our guests, we do all of the cleaning ourselves. As we have two cottages to turn over every Saturday, we ask our guests to "start" the laundry. This helps us to have a later check out time for our guests. Should guest be unable to start the washer, or do some basic clean up (and some do choose not to) when deduct a cleaning fee from the initial deposit. I'm sorry if this was an inconvenience for you. Should you decide to stay with us again, please let us know ahead of time and we will make a special arrangement regarding this.
Happy in Holland
This property is simply wonderful. We loved the cozy feel of the cottage and exploring all the sights of Holland. If you are looking for a comfortable and clean place in an ideal location, this is the perfect fit!
Very comfy and wonderful location everything we needed
Across the street from Lake Michigan which is accessible from many parks within walking and driving distance. Summers in Holland we have street performers on Thursdays, farmers markets Wednesdays and Saturdays, concerts in Kollen Park on Friday nights. There are many you pick blueberry fields in the area.
