It was close enough to walk to all of the action. Yet, far enough away that the night life down town did not keep our kids awake. The unit was very clean & comfortable. We enjoyed working with the owner who was extremely helpful! We highly recommend this condo and would return again in a heartbeat! Grand Haven itself is just a fantastic family vacation location- the beaches, boardwalk, eateries, shops, festival, & ice cream galore... you won't be disappointed!

I requested a reservation and Nancy responded within 15 minutes! She was very helpful throughout our stay - answering questions like where are extra towels, where should we eat, etc. Our family (3 children between 8 - 13 plus a dog) had a great mini vacation. The house is clean and nicely painted. The beds are comfortable. We biked everywhere from the house - attended the light show 2 nights, biked to North Shore, South Shore, etc. The house doesn't include salt, pepper, etc. but there are plenty of dishes, pans, even tupperware. The street is busy but the children could walk to Culver's for a shake and there's a small park just down the street. We recommend this property!
