Built in 2011; light and airy 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath beach bungalow. Quiet retreat steps from one of only three nationally certified 'clean beaches' on the Great Lakes, and the largest white sand beach in West Michigan. Start your day walking or fishing off the channel, watching the boats cruise by. Afternoons are great spent playing on the all white sand beach and in the clear waters of Lake Michigan. Evenings are wonderful watching the famous Western Michigan sunsets while strolling out to the Red Lighthouse at the end of Pere Marquette. Or, stay home and relax on the huge front porch, enjoying the Lake Michigan Breezes.
Master bedroom on the first floor, fully appointed kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Enjoy the fireplace in the family room on those cooler nights at the beach. Have fun heading out to the back deck to grill, or go down to the fire pit to make late light s'mores!

My husband and I have been married for two years on June 7th. It made me think of our perfect wedding day!! we stayed for a week at this house and it couldnt have been more perfect! Everything that you could ever need is in the house. I dream of the next time we are able to go again!
Searching for a spacious & stylish family vacation home in a quiet and relaxing setting? Look no further! Rob & Bonny's place caught our eye from the start with its "beachy" decor, bright & cheerful rooms and comfortable living spaces. The house is brand new, though with the charm you'd expect from a vintage vacation cottage by the shore. The neighborhood backs up to fields and woods to explore, and a sprawling Lake Michigan beach is just a block away.
Our family and some friends, including five teenagers (gasp!) enjoyed a winter weekend of cooking, game playing and snowshoeing at the cottage, plus cross country skiing at the Muskegon Winter Sports Complex less than 30 min away.
Oh, and dealing with the owners was super easy. Definitely recommend the place to anyone wanting a family-friendly getaway in western Michigan.
This was our 4th year staying at Rob & Bonny's "Beach House". I has been like coming home each summer. Everything has been consistent and the house seems to be in the same condition as it did our 1st summer when it was brand new. We have enjoyed family while in Muskegon and doing the Muskegon and West Michigan activities. This year we did the Dune Buggy rides at Silver Lake and stopped at Cherrypoint Market for Cherry Pie and Cherry Streudel. My grandchildren have grown up at the "Beach House" and constantly talk about it. This year we were welcomed with ingrediients to make S'mores which we did over the open fire pit. We will be back in the future.
The beach house was perfect! It is exactly as it is pictured -- beautiful! Our family consisting of my husband, myself, 2 daughters, son in law and 2 grandchildren were vey comfortable and really enjoyed making s'mores each night at the fire pit. Walk to the beach was 5 minutes!! I will definitely stay there again the next time we plan on going to Muskegon!!
We really loved our stay at the Family Fun Beach Bungalow. The owners captured the essence of the beach in their decorating and color schemes. I would highly recommend this home to anyone that wants to stay near Muskegon. It's less than a five minute walk to be on the shore of Lake Michigan. It was nice to come home from the beach to make a nice little fire to enjoy s'mores and talk with family and friends. Our son really loved the bunk beds, foosball table, internet, satellite TV and the DVDs. We made many meals at home and the kitchen is well equipped. We did find a great hamburger place, The Twist pizza, and happy hour at the beach bar. There is so much to do there like submarine tours, a farmers market and historical tours in town. Our week flew by.
The house and everything inside was very nice and clean. The front porch was perfect for our second day when it was raining. It was nice to be outside playing games with family and friends and still being able to watch the waves coming in.
The owners were great at communications. I have rented many places on the Lake Michigan shores and this home was tops. What a great way to start the summer!
We needed a place to stay in Michigan for our family and a few friends, and this house fit the bill perfectly. The house is immaculate, comfortable, and decorated with that "coastal cottage" look - beautiful! We enjoyed the walking path, the beaches & lighthouse, the backyard fire pit and 'photo booth', the yard games, the front porch . . .& the house was equipped with everything we needed for a fun family weekend. Very grateful and would definitely rent here again!
