Recent West Central reviews

  • Great house! Wonderful owners! Very close to downtown shops and restaurants.

    "This was the first time I rented a home from someone, thus I was nervous in selecting a place. The purpose of the trip was to celebrate my 32nd birthday and my mother’s 65th birthday. There were five adults (two couples in their early 30s and my mother). I was looking for something close to town and chose the home solely on the reviews (which after my five day stay, I can say they were very truthful). The pictures on the listing are very accurate. In fact, the home is much more beautiful in person. The owners, Cory and Pat, have done a marvelous job stalking the home with all the essentials. We went to the beach every day we were there and I greatly appreciated the beach towels, beach umbrella and beach chairs the owners provided. If you are looking for something close to town, this is it! It is about a 3 minute walk. The rooftop of the Kirby house (5 minute walk) is a nice place to grab a cocktail, dinner, and watch the light show. One morning I took a run from the house to the end of the pier/lighthouse, which is about 1½ miles. We drove to the beach because we had so much to bring, but if you only need a towel, you can definitely walk (1½ miles). We took advantage of the porch and rocking chairs for morning coffee and the back patio for grilling and dinner. Pat and Cory are on top of everything that I never needed to call them before getting there or once there. In fact, they do a wonderful job of providing instructions for everything you might possibly have a question about, loved that! However, they do stress to you the freedom to call them at any time. The house was the perfect size for five adults. It was a bit warm at night on the second floor, but there are powerful fans in each of the three rooms. We did meet Pat and Cory, who are very warm people and I could quickly tell that they take pride in their home and the happiness of those that rent from them. I didn’t expect to feel like their home was my home, but I did! It’s a nice feeling to have when you’re supposed to be on vacation relaxing. Although there were no children in our group, the home is very kid friendly (i.e., games, movies, and books). I would recommend this home for anyone who is looking to be close to town and have easy access to the beach. Pat and Cory, thank you for sharing your home with us. We enjoyed our stay very much and had a wonderful time in Grand Haven. We hope to be back next year for a full week! Oh, and thank you for the fresh squeezed lemonade, it was wonderful!"

  • Perfect Relaxing Beachfront Retreat

    "This was our first visit to this cottage and to Lake Michigan. Our family of four had a wonderful week long vacation here that, at least for my 9 year old daughter, beat out our trip to Disney World last year. She said that the only thing that would have made it better would have been to never go out! We did go check out Pentwater, though. We were a bit off season so some of the shops were closed, but we knew that ahead of time. We also went to Ludington to check out Big Sable Lighthouse. Other than that we spent lots of time hanging out in this house. We read books, watched a few movies (they have cable and Netflix), enjoyed a couple fires in the fire pit, swam and jumped around in the waves and walked the beach. It was delightful. The house was clean and comfortable. It had all the items we might need to cook and enjoy the beach. There were even lots of random household items like bandages, shampoo, tons of towels and I found a couple pins in the bathroom drawer that came in handy while we were there. It is decorated with pictures from the owners' families which gives it a lovely personal feel. I experienced great communication with the owner by email. I had several questions during the planning process that were answered in a timely and pleasant manner. We all agree we'd be happy to come back to stay here again!"

  • Tucked off Ottawa Beach Road

    "We had a family gathering and needed an extra house to hold 11 adults. We chose this house based on past reviews and were not disappointed. This house is true to its advertising. This lovely home held us all with adequate room to gather and play games and eat together. We did some patio sitting, grilling, and enjoyed the state beach park located down the road. It was a perfect base for roaming the lake shore and lake resort towns. Easy to get to groceries. Quiet walks to park via back roads and on bikes. Home has everything you would have at your own house plus more! As a guest, you will love it!"
