Excellent for family vacation,
Plenty of space for 7 adults and a dog. Home was clean and excellent location. Nice fire pit area and on a quiet block. Would definitely rent again. The only downside is the path to the water especially the last leg is not recommended for anyone with knee issues or seniors.
Comfortable Vacation Accomodations
We were very pleased with the house and its access to Holland and the local beach. The location is quiet and conducive to relaxation. The fire pit and porch are nice features, and the yard (both front and back) have beautiful flowers with natural grasses. We were slightly disappointed in the absence of any grassy areas.
Very Disappointed with the whole experience!
We had reserved and paid for this stay on August 5th. We received a confirmation for check-in at noon on August 25th and check-out at 5pm on August 28th. My daughter arrived at the location at 12:15 and was told that we didn't have the cottage because someone else was staying there and our reservation was cancelled! Kathy insisted that we cancelled which wasn't the case. Kathy tried to find another location which was only available for two nights and not in the same vicinity as this cottage. Then she tried to find a hotel on ottawa beach rd with two beds. I'm sorry but that does not compare to the space in a cottage. We did get a full refund with a $75 consolation gift. What I want to know is why the other family didn't get the same treatment. After all we should have had the cottage as we were the first to arrive. Instead Kathy continued to insist that it was our problem as we had cancelled. This was going to be our last family vacation together as our kids were going off to college. Makes me wonder if the other family was staying longer and therefore it would have been more profitable? Wish I would have had a chance to actually stay at the cottage to give it a more appropriate review.
As you indicated, we understood this reservation to be cancelled. I don't know how this was miscommunicated but despite our every effort to locate other housing for you ( at our expense) you decided against it.
We did our best to assist you, even so far as adding a gift refund.
When a party cancels, any other incoming travelers take precedence and have no connection to a previous reservation.
Again we apologize for any inconvenience and understand your disappointment. We are proud of our track record and hope you will consider us in the future.
Nice home & good location, rodents
July 2015. Walking distance to nice public beach w/ no steps. Beach is small and can get very crowded. House is nice and yard is pretty. FYI: the yard does not have any grass area for kids to play on. Dryer handle was broken on arrival and owner was very communicative on working to make it useable the couple times it broke. However, found live mice in trashcan under kitchen sink on two occasions. Pretty unpleasant to have to dispose of that. Did not tell wife first time as early in week but after second mouse had to tell her and of course vacation was quickly over. Told owner we were leaving and she refunded me the cleaning fee (not even a full day). Nice house but would obviously not recommend
Lovely Home - Great Property Management
My family of 7 adults/3 dogs stayed here for a relative's wedding last year and had a wonderful time. We were a high maintenance group (we needed to rent a few extra days and they allowed us to bring 3 dogs) but the owners were so accommodating. We really appreciated the flexibility. It's an excellent location if you are looking for peace and quiet - just a quick walk to catch the sun set over Lake Michigan and for us, a quick drive/bike ride right around the corner to our relative's house. The house itself has a bright open concept, is sparkling clean and everything functioned as expected (I think it has central air conditioning but we didn't need it when we were there in mid-August). We had plenty of living space and bathrooms for all of us to get ready for the wedding. And we loved that we could help ourselves to the mint in the backyard for our mojitos!
We wouldn't hesitate for a second to consider this house again for another stay.
Thank you so much Susan- I'm so pleased you had such a good time at Lakefront Cottage last summer!
We often hear positive comments from our guests, but I know it takes extra effort to actually place the review-- so it's very much appreciated.
We hope you will consider us for your future vacation needs~
Great home for a girls week. Group of six ladies found this home very comfortable and had everything we needed. Even cool enough in august to use the fire pit one night. The public beach area is pretty small but being so close you can get there early and set up then lounge the day away. We all loved Holland, and the best Saturday "farmers market" we had ever been to. Rented many homes on VRBO and this one is a keeper. Rental agency always prompt and available. Thanks Kathy!
Thanks so much girls- I'm glad you had an enjoyable stay at Lakefront Cottage and welcome you back any time! I also appreciate your taking the effort to submit your review, many guests are return visitors that just don't take the time to comment~ as long as everyone enjoys themselves!
Thanks again, Kathy
