"We had a great time in Grand Rapids. The home was well furnished with partially everything you would need, including coffee and filters! The yard out back was a perfect running playground for our dog. And the location to downtown was perfect; less than a 10 minute drive! I would love to come back and stay at this property again one day. The only downside was that the windows didn't have screens and difficult to open. Our weekend stay was mid April, so possibly the owners didn't have a chance yet to put screens in. So we left the front door open while we were home and enjoyed the breeze coming in through the screen door."

"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!"

"This house is exactly as it says, 'Charming'! We rented this house at the last minute over Labor Day weekend and Sharon was very accommodating. We met her and Jim at the house and they showed us around and stayed and talked to us for a bit. We had 4 adults and 3 girls and it was perfect. The girls slept in the twin bedroom and there was a rollaway in the basement that fit right between the beds. The back yard was nice and big for games- bean bag toss, bocce ball and on the last night we enjoyed a bonfire. Everyday we walked into town either for dinner, farmers market and/or shopping. The location was wonderful for all of this. It's farther to the beach so we choose to drive and that worked fine. The bathroom was a nice size with double sinks. Several other houses we looked at just had a pedestal for the sink and that doesn't leave any room for toiletries. There was plenty of drawers in this bathroom for storage. Thank you Sharon and Jim for being so accommodating and for sharing your home with us! I highly recommend this house."

"We stayed at Green Leaf for 6 weeks while our family was in transition moving out of state. I am so glad I found this place! First of all it was absolutely spotless. It was comfortable (especially the beds) and cozy. You can't beat the location if you are looking to enjoy the beach! A short walk to a gigantic white sandy beach! Janey and Rosie were amazing hosts. Not only were they extremely friendly, accommodating and quick to answer any questions, but we left with new friends. There is a fabulous restaurant across the street and a great grocery store just a 4 minute drive away. If you are looking for a comfortable, family friendly vacation home with a beautiful beach just a short walk away look no further. You can also rent the house next door if you have a large group (Snug Harbor). Would rent again in a heartbeat!"
