What a Special place to us!

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled all over the world and this is definitely one of our favorite places to stay! The accommodations are priceless! The interior decor is straight out of a magazine. The views from every room are breathtaking and majestic. It is surreal to wake up to every day and to enjoy spectacular sunsets each night. We feel at home with all the amenities of the house. The owners are a pleasure to work with, very helpful and gracious in sharing such a beautiful home. They have kept it so clean and accommodating to all of our needs. We have stayed both in summer and fall. We thought it couldn't get any better than the summer months with the great private beach and Lake Michigan waters to enjoy, but the Fall was absolutely stunning! The colors of the changing of the seasons, was picturesque! We even walked for miles on the beach, it was beautiful! We love the location as we go into Grand Haven, Holland and over to Spring Lake to enjoy shopping, dining and activities. There are so many great restaurants and shops in both Grand Haven and Holland. We always are sad to leave as it is such a special retreat to us! We have many fun family memories here and hope to continue to rent through out the years!

Still the most Fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Just another note - the home was too beautiful and the beach was actually fine - we had professional photos taken on it, so there was plenty of beach to enjoy. The beach was delightful - we could still take long walks and built sandcastles! Don't miss this amazing property. We have the most wonderful memories from our trip!!

Fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful week ever! Eight adults (our family) enjoyed the house, which is perfectly outfitted, and the location is fantastic. The beach was washed out this year, so that was a little disappointing, but otherwise, an amazing week!

Owner's Response: Just to clarify the beach this past year was much smaller in some areas along the shoreline, which is not typical of our beach area over the last 12 years. There was still plenty of beach areas to walk, sit and enjoy the awesome view and play in the water!

Such a SPECIAL place! Absolutely AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

BEST VACATION EVER!!! WOW! This home is so beautiful. It's exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated. The landscaping is gorgeous and very well maintained and the view....WOW - it's amazing! It takes your breathe away. The owners have gone above and beyond to provide every amenity imaginable. You get lulled asleep by the crashing of the waves each doesn't get better! You have a huge stretch of your own private beach to enjoy and the owners have provided all beach items as well (umbrellas, comfy chairs, beach toys, etc).

This home is also ideally located. Very close to downtown Grand Haven and also close to Holland. Many wonderful restaurants, ice cream parlors, grocery stores just minutes away.

We have stayed in this spectacular home for the past 2 years and will be heading back again this year. It holds so many wonderful memories there for us. It is SO difficult to leave each time. No need to head out of the country for an amazing vacation. You can search the world over and not find another place like this!

Janice - Thank you for allowing us to rent each year! We feel so grateful to have found such a special place for our family to visit each year!

The Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

What an absolutely breathtaking vacation home! This property exceeds the presentation online and my family would highly recommend this as a summer get-away. The nightly sunsets were magnificent and visible as you sit on the deck and take in the view. The Grand Haven area has great shopping, delicious restaurants, and wonderful beaches. Our family had so much fun that we are planning to go again next summer:) Cliff (the caretaker) was an extra bonus and a true delight as well.
