Enjoyed this property a lot. Great house, great view and an easy walk to town. Very cozy house and beds were very comfortable. Everything exceeded our expectations. If we ever make it back to Grand Haven, would book this house again.

Great house! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our week at Yia Yia's. There was plenty of room for the six of us when we were hanging out inside or out on the deck. We could walk to everything including the farmers market. Plenty of shops and restaurants to try and also wine tasting. This is a great town and a great vacation house.

Spacious. Perfect for us, our two children and spouses and our 6 grandchildren.

  • 5 of 5

Our choice was to rent three rooms at a motel or rent a home big enough for all of us. This place was a great choice. We had some family stop by to see us which put us over the 4-car limit but the city-owned park right across the street was perfect for parking a couple vehicles in for a few hours. There is a large bedroom with bunk beds in it which all the grandchildren could sleep in. One of our granddaughters described it as "Cousin heaven." Perfect. Our thanks go out to the landlord and host for their accommodating attitude. We would stay here again.

Wonderful Home, Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

We rented Yia Yia's out for a long weekend to celebrate a special Birthday. The cottage truly felt like home immediately and was exactly as advertised. The location was ideal - we could see the lighthouse from the property and it was a very short walk to the beach and into the town. The bedrooms were spacious, there was enough room for 8 adults to sleep comfortably. The house was clean and well equipped with everything we needed for the long weekend. We had brought some of our own kitchen utensils but could have done without in the end. There were lots of blankets, sheets, and pillows all over the house to make the stay comfortable. The property manager was helpful and responded quickly to any questions! Overall a great experience, we can't wait to return to Yia Yia's in the summer.

Perfect Family Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

Yia Yia's Cottage was a perfect destination for our family gathering. This home is not only spacious but very accommodating to any needs one may have; it is well stocked, clean and comfortable. The location could not have been better - the boardwalk is truly right across the street and the beach is just a brief few minute walk away! We also enjoyed the Grand Haven shops which were less than a mile down the road. My husband and I thoroughly relaxed while on a sunset sailboat cruise with the Wind Dancer; again, very close... sailed right by the house as it made its way to Lake Michigan. We appreciated the ease and care of Martina and John, our 'landlords'; they were attentive and prompt with any communication that needed to take place. Many, many thanks to Yia Yia's Cottage for a memorable vacation stretching four generations!
