Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This home is decorated very nicely, lots of good light. Very kid friendly. You will feel right at home! Small private fenced back yard with grill/table and seating for 6.

Three bedrooms; master with queen bed is large enough for portable crib and kids in sleeping bags. The other two bedrooms have a double bed in each.

Fully equipped kitchen (sorry, no dishwasher) and dining room allows for cooking in if you want. Large living room and a family room with pullout sofa allows to sleep 8 comfortably. Linens include beach towels to lessen your packing needs, also lots of board games.

The train track is right next to us. It comes through twice at night. Trains don't run during the day. There is always a jar of pennies at the house so the kids can place a penny on the tracks and look for it the next morning.

The charming downtown of Grand Haven is a short, walkable 5 blocks away. Shopping, great restaurants, bars and activities for kids and adults. Chinook Pier is 4-5 blocks away where you can rent bikes or boats, get ice cream, play miniature golf, or take the boardwalk out to the lighthouse and beach. If you go all the way to the beach, it is about a mile walk/ride.

Why The Owner chose West Central

In our opinion, Grand Haven is the best town along Lake Michigan. We love that the water is so close to downtown. From our house, we can walk downtown to have dinner, walk the boardwalk out to see the sunset on the lake and walk back home without having to find parking.

It is always a great day to be in Grand Haven!

Fit our large family very well!

  • 5 of 5

The home was so comfortable and clean! We have a large family and it was nice to have two living spaces that were separated. We were able to have the younger kids in one living room sleeping while the rest of us could stay up and not disturb them. The pictures don't do this home justice. It was beautiful and the owner was very friendly and easy to get in contact with. I would definitely rent here again!

Comfortable Get Away

  • 4 of 5

The home is clean, roomy and comfortably furnished. We enjoyed eating on the backyard patio which includes gas grill, table with umbrella, and chairs. Train only came by about 3 times during our one week stay and it was not bothersome. The Connector Park and downtown restaurants are within easy walking distance. Bring bicycles if you will be spending a lot of time on the beach as it is a 40 minute walk to the beach. (There are no lifeguards). Many restaurants and leisure activities for your vacation.

Bigger than expected

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week stay...just wish the weather would've been warmer to enjoy the beach more. The house was a perfect size. We even managed to entertain quite a large group for a potluck one night. Located close to downtown--a little far from the beach. We smashed numerous pennies and saw music in the park one evening.

Roomy & clean

  • 4 of 5

This house was perfect for my family of 8. It had two living rooms, which was nice for lounging. The two bedrooms on the main floor are rather small and only have a full size bed in each (which I knew when I rented it), but it would have been nice if the beds were larger. Location was perfect and we were able to walk everywhere. The owner was very responsive (by phone or text) and very helpful. More coasters and chairs in the dining room would have been helpful. I would definitely rent this property again! The travel guide notebook that the owner had at the property was also very helpful and clean up was easy.

Spacious and convenient

  • 4 of 5

This place is huge! There is plenty of space for entertaining, with two living rooms, a dining room, a full kitchen, and an outdoor patio. There is also a nice separation between bedrooms if you are planning on multiple families / couples.

We brought our black lab with Renee's permission and it was perfect for him.

The location is very walkable to the downtown area and even better if you have a bike.

The missing star is due to the rather uncomfortable beds. Also, we felt the checkout time at 10:30am was a bit early. However, Renee did allow us to checkin early so she may be willing to work with you on times.

A train never came through so we never got our smashed pennies! Maybe next time. :)
