About Scott and Jill VanderStoep
We have lived in West Michigan most of our lives. We are excited to share our cottage with you. We think you will have a great time.
Scott and Jill VanderStoep purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Scott and Jill VanderStoep chose West Olive
We believe that West Michigan is the best place for a family vacation in the spring, summer or fall. We look to rent to families, not party-goers. The inside of the cottage is comfortable but not fancy. It feels like a cottage and the sights and sounds will immediately relax you. We have great neighbors who live there full-time and know the area well. We will retire to this home, but for now we rent it to those who want to enjoy a week at one of the most beautiful vacation spots in the US.
What makes this Cottage unique
The beach, the beach, the beach. We plan to retire at this house because of the beach, the view, and the water. It has no bluff, no stairs, and no hill. The walk to the beach is perfect for all ages. We love hosting multi-generation families. This is a great place to make permanent family memories. (Note: It's not geared toward the party crowd. If you're looking for a party house, please look elsewhere.)
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
This was a great location for our first vacation as a family (ten month old). The cabin was outfitted with everything we needed. We especially enjoyed that the cell service was not strong, though the WiFi was. Disconnecting from our rapid work pace(s) in this way was just what we needed. The little one enjoyed learning about sand and sensing the ice cold waters of Lake Michigan. Scott and Jill were fantastic with communication, including meeting us at check-in for orientation. I could go on about all the positives, but you get the idea. We hope that we can return again soon to this beautiful spot.
Scott--Hope you and your family can return soon.
A Perfect Getaway!
This cottage was just what we were looking for, right on the beach with breathtaking views! There were many extra amenities that made our stay more comfortable. It was immaculately clean, and very apparent that great care is taken to maintain the property. Scott and Jill were very responsive and helpful. We would definitely book this rental again.
the perfect house on the beach
Scott's house is wonderful. We've been there whit my family (5 kids + au pair) for 4 nights right after Easter. It was a blessing. Upon all the backyard: I can tell the best thing ever, you never need to wear shoes, the sand is so beautiful, end the walk to the lake so relaxing. even if it was April, we were so lucky with the weather we could spend most of the time walking on the shore and playing on the sand with the kids.
The house: kitchen has everything you need and more, we ate at home a lot of time that was great!
I would definitely stay again there!
Scott was super helpful with suggestion, very attentive with us. Thanks Scott
Thank you, M&T. Please bring your family back soon.

Great spot on the lake.
Great location. Cabin had everything. It was disappointing that we could not cell phone service (AT&T) while at the cabin but everything else was amazing.
Debra: Thanks for spending the wrk at our cottage. We have Spectrum not AT&T but I hope the WiFi and landline were sufficient.
Great beach cottage
Wonderful cottage on a great beach location. Good amenities including a/c and a gas grill, both of which we used a couple of times. Location is halfway between Grand Haven and Holland, so plenty of things to do and places to eat if you want to get away from the beach for a spell or it rains.
Very nice cottage
This cottage is very clean, nicely appointed, and has a very nice beach area. You would enjoy your stay there!
Thanks, Jayme. Great to have your family with us. Can’t wait for you to return in 2019.
