About Josh & Jen Brugger

Josh is a third generation Grand Haven resident who owns a local building company. Jen grew up in Maryland, Ethiopia, and Kenya. She runs Priscilla's Gift Rentals and volunteers at their boys' school. Both love Grand Haven in the summer, but especially in fall when the leaves start to turn. 2016 is the first summer the third floor will be available.

Josh & Jen Brugger purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Josh & Jen Brugger chose West Central

Location... And we know that everyone says location. We really mean it. You are a stones throw from the beach and short walk to downtown and the historic pier. Prospect is nicely located just off the main drag so it's not as crazy as many other places right on Harbor.

We purchased the historic home in 2013 and have been busy updating and remodeling and making it one of the best places for a family vacation in Grand Haven. There's a bike rack out front where you can lock up your own bikes. You can catch the historic trolley from across the street at the Grand Haven Stage Park and take it along the shoreline and river right to down town. You can drive in, park, and leave you car for the week while you enjoy Grand Haven and it's nationally renowned beach and waterfront.

Grandma's Weekend Success

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time at Josh and Jen's place in Grand Haven. My daughter and her girls sure enjoyed their time too. The apartment was clean and tidy. The decorating was just right for a beach vacation spot. We hope to come back in the summer. Thank you so much!

Great Fall Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Nice weekend break. Josh and Jen are wonderful hosts who thought of everything. They even put a bottle of champagne in the fridge to help us celebrate our anniversary. Can't wait to come back next fall.

Family of 4 plus 2

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Grand Haven at Priscilla's gift. The views ARE amazing. We were so close to the lake we could hear the waves outside our bedroom window... and the sunsets were breathtaking. Our boys (10 and 8) had two of their friends join us. They had fun in the hot tub and took turns in the top "bunks" in the bedroom. The top bunks are hanging from the ceiling. Very cool. We brought our bikes and locked them to the bike rack out front. Had a great time and look forward to coming back next year.

Wonderful Grand Haven Rental

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this beach home sight unseen in person as we are from out of state (formerly from Michigan) and Priscilla's Gift top floor rental was the perfect home for our week in Grand Haven.

It was very clean and comfortable and is close to the beach, to the pier, to the town. It was stocked very well with all that we needed for the week (linens, dishes, gas grill, etc). When we weren't on the beach or walking on the pier, we enjoyed the beautiful views and sunsets of Lake Michigan from the living room.

The only thing we would recommend is that all of the windows have screens on them as we didn't need to use the air conditioning since the weather was cool enough to have the windows open.

We would recommend this rental without reservation and we will definitely be back to this beautiful place!

To the owners...nicely done and thank you.

Lake House

  • 5 of 5

We loved how close to the beach this house is! It was clean and spacious! The decor was lovely! The kitchen was just like home. Every time I checked a drawer for something i needed in a pinch it was there. We had a luxurious time at the beach and would come back in a heart beat! Thanks so much! P.S sunsets are great!
