About Sue or Bob Kust
We fell in love with Holland when we would visit our girls who both attended Hope College, when graduation time creeping up on us we set about to find a vacation home in this lovely community, We love the friendliness, shopping, farmers market, the lake and beaches and of course all that goes on at Hope College. Since we live in Cincinnati we decided to rent our house out so that others could enjoy it when we weren't there ourselves.
Sue or Bob Kust purchased this Cottage in 2012
Why Sue or Bob Kust chose Park
We loved the cottagey feel and the proximity to the beach, there is nothing like taking a short walk down the street to the Lake, even in the winter. It is a changing landscape everyday. Also the house has plenty of room for a crowd and a great outdoor area. Its a great place to unwind.
What makes this Cottage unique
Close to the bike trails and beach but on a quite street away from the crowds. Short walk to the beach and short ride into town for restaurants and shopping

Great weekend getaway!
Loved the property. Short walk to the beach. House very clean with plenty of parking.
Glad you had a nice time! Loved having you!
We really enjoyed our stay. The house was so clean and well-maintained. It is a short walk down the street to the lake and the beach. We came in town for a family wedding and it was the perfect place for our family of 8. The only negative was that there was not an ironing board. After flying in we had several items that needed ironing for the wedding. There is an iron but no ironing board, so ironing on the bed was a little challenging. Overall it was fantastic and if we ever come to the area again we would definitely stay here.
Nice House Overall... Owners could be a bit more honest
Overall the home is lovely and a perfect fit for our group.
The House was clean, beautifully decorated, beds were comfortable and fireplace was wonderful as the nights and mornings were quite chilly!
The home is close to the beach, Lovely neighborhood, close to town and easy to find and access. If my decision was based solely on the House alone I would defiantly stay here again..
What I did not like however was the following:
1st, there is nothing in the listing info that says somebody else lives at the property. It is advertised as a private house. But in our welcome info we were informed the daughter lives in an apartment above the garage attached to the house.
This was not a problem overall however there is a door in the master bedroom that accesses the apartment and in the early morning I could hear her getting ready for work. Again not a huge issue I just think it should be listed somewhere in the listing so you truly know what your renting!
Next, my biggest issue. There was a “To Do” of things we were required to do prior to checking out with the comment that if the listed items were not done we would be charged!
Those items included taking out the garbage bins to the roadside that were overflowing with trash from the people who stayed there prior to us I assume. Two huge bins, both full and no room for our small bags so we placed them on top of the lids for the garbage to pick up! I really did not appreciate having to take out the garbage for prior guests!!
Also on the list, to make sure all beds were stripped of sheets and blankets, to start a load of laundry, and to be sure all dishes were washed and put away!
Now I don’t have a problem making sure things are clean and picked up, that’s something I always do, but to strip the beds and start the laundry when we are paying $200 a night and a $150 cleaning fee???
And to be told if these things are not done we will get charged? I’m sorry this did not set well with me! I could see asking the guests to do some of these things but to require it? I’m sorry isn’t that what we pay the cleaning fee for???
I’m certain the $150 cleaning fee more than coved the cost of the crew after we left!
All in all as I said the house was beautiful, I enjoyed our time there and I would be happy to recommend it. However I think it’s taking advantage of your guests to “require” cleaning services when we are being charged for them also!
Just some things to keep in mind when booking this house!
I’m glad you had a nice time - I’m sorry that you didn’t like the checkout guidelines. . Since we only have a few hours to turn the house for the next guests, it really helps if someone can help with a few things like get a load of laundry started. It is totally a time issue. Washers take so long now that we have real trouble getting all the laundry done, dried and put on the beds in the time allotted. We really appreciate when guests can help us out.
We also only ask that you start the dishwasher for the same reason and don't say anywhere that you will be charged.
"Check out is 11 am to allow us to clean and prepare the cottage for the next guests if you could help us with the items below we would appreciate it." taken directly from the checkout sheet
Also garbage is only collected one day a week in Holland so when previous guests don’t put out the garbage then the bins get filled up for the next guests. We try to have people check on the garbage since we don’t live in Holland but unfortunately they must have missed the week you were there. We will reinforce that gets done. I’m sorry that happened.
Glad you had a nice time otherwise
We just rented this house for a girls’ weekend and loved it. The house is absolutely adorable. The open floor plan was perfect for entertaining and socializing. We also loved the fireplace. We were there on a cooler weekend so it made our experience even more cozy. There is a great path that leads to the lake. It’s also long enough to go for a run along the main road safely.
There is a review on here that said the house is dirty. We did not find that to be the case at all. It was very clean and looked like the pictures that were posted. It’s a very charming house and a such a great deal for a large group of people. We had 8 people in the house and there was plenty of space for us all to feel comfortable. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here.
Dingy....Grimy....Didn't see the Luxury ☹️ Not 5 Bedrooms....3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 10
I don't think this property should be occupied by anyone with small children. The slats on the railings are too far apart for most children under 6 years old to be safe (this probably violates some sort of building code, if not it should) The worry isn't that the child's head would get stuck in the railings but that it would NOT get stuck and the child would fall completely through. This property is the first house at the bottom of small but dangerous hill and is a complete blind spot, those coming over the hill CANNOT see you you ! The speed limit is 30 MPH and when you are trying to pull out of the driveway or cross the street, you absolutely CANNOT see them coming either. You have to just make a break for it and hope for the best ( the sidewalk is on the other side of the street) The home needs a fresh coat of paint throughout, and a deep cleaning, everything felt just kind grimy, the blankets on the bunk beds were dark blue the type of blanket everything sticks too and they were covered in pet hair, or someones hair, (even the 4 year olds knew it was icky) the top bunk is “maybe” 6 inches from the light fixture and does not look as shown in the picture. The table and chairs in the basement are now 1 step above a card table and not as shown. The "windows" in the basement are covered from the back with plastic and back lit from behind. The “shiny clean” candle holders on the tables were dusty, and grimy with melted dirty candles. Those beautiful white couches were visibly filthy, and in need of a good bleaching they smelled funky/dirty as well. Be careful sitting down in the brown leather chair as it’s WELL worn in. The landscaping in front is gone and now and is a messy path of pebbles, leading to the fire pit. The "laundry room" in the basement is a complete disaster. There is a closet on the first floor with nothing but "cleaning supplies" which included disgusting smelly mops and dirty dust rags which are probably what they "clean" with. I honestly expected better. The kitchen has the bare necessities, the pots and pans need a good scrubbing, , the area next to the refrigerator looks like it hasn't been cleaned in years, and you can see the crumbs, dust, and who knows what else in there, the kitchen garbage can area is dirty as well. The pictures make the home look fresh, but in reality it honestly is not. Sue and Bob you should stop by your property unannounced sometime soon, because someone isn't doing their job.
Wow, I cannot imagine what you’re talking about. We were the last people to stay there before you and the only thing I would agree with is that the top bunk is close to the ceiling. We were there for 3 weeks and had all the necessities in the kitchen. We left it clean next to the fridge etc even before the cleaning people came. As far as the outside goes, when we left there was snow on the ground so I don’t know what our pebble path looks like until the landscapers do a spring clean up. I understand you were upset that we would not refund your reservation when you wanted to cancel a few weeks ago, I did offer to try to rerent. I don’t think it’s a reason to give us an unfair review.
We have been renting this house for 5 years and have never had any comments like yours. I really don’t know how else to respond. I suggest people look at our other reviews.
Very cozy and comfortable
Enjoyed our Thanksgiving get away! Had everything we needed. Great location, walked to the beach and went into Holland for some shopping. Whole family, kids ages 9-23, enjoyed very much! Relaxing and comfortable. Beautiful home!
Just a few minute walk to beautiful Lake Michigan and Tunnel Park. Enjoy the stunning views of clear blue water, sailboats and seagulls as you kick back and unwind. There’s no better place to be in the spring than Holland's Tulip Time Festival. Known for our famous Tulip Time Festival, Windmill Island and Dutch Village just to name a few of our local attractions. Fall is a great time to take a hike and enjoy the fall colors. We are surrounded by miles and miles of bike trails. You can bike all the way to Grand Haven along the lakefront. In the winter curl up next to your own cozy fireplace, cross country ski or just marvel at Lake Michigan’s Icebergs. The downtown is a great place to shop even during the snowiest winter days with help of our heated downtown sidewalks and outdoor fireplace. Holland’s downtown is vibrant year round and is a huge draw for locals and visitors alike. Don't forget to visit our famous Holland Farmers Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays summer and Fall! Christmas Market after Thanksgiving !
