About the property

The best spot for viewing fireworks in the comfort of the front yard.

This newly remodeled 3 bedroom, 1 and 1/2 bath 2 story home sits nestled in the perfect spot. The home is surrounded by sand dunes, nature preserve, water, and a marina. It's just a short three minute walk to a private white sandy Lake Michigan beach. Beach is part of homeowner association. It is located next to the North Grand Haven Pier. The perfect spot for having cocktails while sitting on your private beach watching the boats go up and down the Channel and out to the big lake. This big beautiful beach has wonderful sand that actually makes a whistling sound when you walk through it. This is an amazing spot to watch the stunning sunsets. Please view the pictures on here. Take a stroll along miles of Lake Michigan shoreline. The North pier is just steps away from the beach where you can try your luck at fishing. Perfect sand for making sand castles and great waves for playing in. This is the perfect place to relax and not fight the big crowds for a spot on the public beach or walking miles from your car after paying to park. If you chose to drive 20 seconds to the beach; there is plenty of free parking at the fishing parking lot next to the pier and our beach. There are private property beach signs so the public does not use this beach. This home sits on the largest lot on North Shore Dr. It has a large front yard that is the ultimate spot for viewing the firework show on the Fourth Of July and Coast Guard Festival. There are usually over a hundred thousand people each year in Grand Haven to view this spectacular show. You do not need to fight the crowds. Just sit back in the comfort of your chair. Sit out on the back deck and drink your morning coffee while hearing the sounds of birds, water, and boats. You may even view a deer or two in the beach grass or the front yard. There are so many things to do around Grand Haven and Muskegon. There are many great golf courses, miniature golf courses, restaurants, entertainment, festivals, arts and antiquing.

There is a wonderful theme /water park about 25 miles away. Michigan Adventure is owned and operated by Cedar Point. It has many roller coasters and rides and a big water park. It is a very clean and maintained park.

Children and adults love it, because there aren't long waits for rides. It is also affordable for a family. There are historical places to visit, plenty of shopping in quaint local stores or even a major shopping mall. Grand Haven is also known for it's Charter Fishing. Relax on the beautiful white sandy beach and take a leisurely stroll down the beach, or sight see and enjoy all that this area has to offer. We want you to build sandcastles and wonderful memories.

About Karen Dedert

My name is Karen, and I own this home with my three other siblings. We grew up in this area and we absolutely love it. Our parents owned this house, but our mother recently passed away and we inherited it. We did not want to sell because we have so many great memories here enjoying the beach and lake with our families. I have two wonderful boys and they love coming out here to swim, play on the beach, and hike the dune preserves next to the house. There is no way we could duplicate this spot. It is magical for all of us. We want to share it with you so you can make amazing memories here.

Karen Dedert purchased this house in 1988

Why Karen Dedert chose West Central

Once you arrive here, you will see how pretty the location is. the home is surrounded by sand dunes, beach grass, water, and wildlife. The private beach has breathtaking views of the light houses, piers, channel, and Lake Michigan. There is so much to see and discover here.

What makes this house unique

This place is the perfect spot to watch the firework shows for the annual Coast Guard Festival and the Fourth of July.

The beach is also perfect for relaxing or taking a stroll to see the boats. This is the way you should experience Grand Haven's beauty.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing our home. We are so happy you had a great stay. You must have seen the deer that come and visit behind our house. I think they were on the front porch, because all my flowers were eaten.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time for my 50th birthday. The home was well supplied with everything we needed and we were welcomed with delicious cinnamon rolls and birthday cake! The private beach was beautiful and just a short distance from the home. Very quiet and peaceful! Thank you Lori & Karen for everything!
