  • Our best Girls' weekend yet!

    "7 girlfriends and I spent the weekend at Norma's cottage for our 2nd annual girls weekend. All of us live in the north Grand Rapids area and it was the perfect distance away to not waste too much time driving to our location. The cottage FAR EXCEEDED our expectations. The pictures do not do justice to the amazing beachy cottage decor, spacious rooms, 3 full bathrooms and amazing back porch. Several of us are also runners and enjoyed the close proximity to the Heinz Waterfront Walkway for a great morning job along the water. We walked to downtown (20-25 minute walk) for the Farmers' Market, shops and lunch. Could not recommend this place enough!"

  • Annual Family Vacation

    "It was our 4th annual family get-together (8 adults & 8 children) and we had a great time. This home is spacious with a wonderful view of the lake. It is exactly as portrayed in the photo gallery. Homes we’ve rented in the past have been short on both soft seating and dining space for everyone to be together but this home provided both (although a glass top table with roller chairs is a little sketchy with toddlers). Basement area was great; we were able to move the noise downstairs & the kids loved the shuffleboard. Bedrooms were spacious but window coverings in the bedrooms and bathrooms would have been appreciated. As would towel bars, new pillows and better bed linens. Mattresses although not perfect were adequate. The listing says the home sleeps 16 and while there is enough room for air mattresses, etc, there aren’t actual beds to sleep 16. We would suggest the kitchen be outfitted a little better. We found there wasn’t enough silverware or cereal bowls and the cooking utensils were not the quality you’d expect in a home this lovely. The refrigerator/freezer combination was terrific as was the huge walk-in pantry. We brought a pontoon boat and a ski boat and the dock was roomy enough to accommodate both and plenty of parking for cars and trailers. The putting green was fun and the huge grassy area was wonderful for the kids to play on and for adult relaxation. And a hot tub! Evenings were nice around the firepit. Can’t have a summer get-together without s’mores! Unfortunately there’s not a lot of sandy area on the beach. Our family has out-of-state plans next year. But, would we rent this home again in the future? Absolutely!"

  • Hall Family Vacation

    "Our family spent a week at Golden Sands and we have already booked for next year. The house was perfect and gave us plenty of space. We love the location because it is central to the dunes, trails, Hart and Pentwater. The golf course is very well kept. We enjoyed many rounds of golf as part of the rental package. We even extended our stay in the area so we could participate in the annual Glow Bash - what a great time. The clubhouse at the course is cozy and serves great food and drinks. Even if you don't stay at the house you should check out the clubhouse and course - well worth it. The best part of they stay for us was meeting new friends. We can't say enough about Bill, Alicia, Will, Drew, Alley, Izzy and Mulligan. They are a great family and wonderful hosts. We can't wait to visit again."
