Loved the house! Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our family of 8. The location is fantastic. One block to shops and restaurants. Walk to the boardwalk and peer and even to the beach if your up for it. The house had everything we needed and was clean. We even watched the 4th of July fireworks from the driveway... we didn't have to deal with finding a spot or all the traffic. I also love the character of an old home! We live in a Victorian Farmhouse that was built in 1901 so we felt right at home. We had a wonderful stay in Grand Haven and really loved the house. Thanks!!

Awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for our group of 8 girls last weekend! We had a bachelorette party here and loved being able to walk so easily to grab coffee, breakfast, shopping, etc. Everything was SO close (like 0.1-0.2 miles), this really was the perfect location. The house had everything we needed besides toiletries and beach towels. The bath towels were so soft!

We were hoping the weather would be better for a June weekend, but unfortunately it was pretty dreary the whole time. Hopefully we'll be able to go back again when it's actually summer!

Location, location, location

  • 5 of 5

First off, the location can't be beat! Walking distance to everything happening downtown, restaurants, shops, Musical Fountain at night, Saturday Farmer's Market. The house was well stocked with all the necessities. Enclosed front porch for morning coffee, big deck in the back for evening happy hour and dinner. This four bedroom, 3 bath house was plenty large enough for 4 adults and a toddler grandson so no one was on top of each other. Lots of room for the grandson to play and run around. Sure hope this place is available when we decide to do another family vacation in Grand Haven.

Can’t wait for the next time!!

  • 5 of 5

Diane is as amazing as her house! I talked to her for 20 minutes upon arrival and wished she was there!! The kitchen is so perfect since that is where everyone gathers! Supplies are fully stocked (but pack your own bar soap). We spent 2 nights, but could have stayed for 20! Awesome place, awesome renter, doesn’t get better!!

Beautiful home, wonderful location, and owner was great to deal with from start to finish.

  • 5 of 5

This home is wonderful and so was Diane throughout the entire process. We rented the home for my nephew’s wedding so that we could all be together. The location is great-close to both downtown and to the water. Everyone commented that we need to come back in the summer for a family getaway. If it was this much fun in January (brrrrer!), I can only imagine how great it would be to rent it in the summer. I highly recommend this place to everyone!
