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.

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!

Very nice with some suggestions

  • 4 of 5

Great place and perfect location, just a couple of suggestions. We were 6 people and there were not nearly enough towels/washcloths/linens. We had to do laundry twice in a 5 day stay. There were no sheets provided for the fold out queen couch which we used because because the 2nd bedroom has 2 sets of bunks but the top bunks are inches from the ceiling. No one would want to or feel comfortable sleeping there. The master bedroom is spacious and lovely as well as its bathroom.

Good enough for 6 people but no way for 8.

Owner's Response: Susan, Thank you so much for your suggestions and we will look into correcting that for future guests. The bunk beds are 3 feet from the ceiling but perhaps we should let adults know about the space. We enjoyed you staying with us and hope you visit again in the future!

Great view

  • 2 of 5

Great view and thoughtful details like towels, dish detergent, etc., BUT there are fresh mice droppings every morning and the CO detector went off the first night (we slightly opened the windows after that). We skipped the last night and went home.

Owner's Response: Josh here. Owner of Priscilla's Gift. We recently took over managing our beach house again. While we were away, we received this review. While we're disappointed with the review, we were told by our former property manager that these folks were a last minute booking and a real challenge. We have no way to verify their experience and we're sorry it appears it wasn't a great one. That said, we lived on the third floor for three years with our two boys and enjoyed every minute of it. We didn't have the experiences that these folks had and we're glad that so many guests have had a wonderful time visiting our place. For other reviews, all five star, you can check out our listings for the first and second floors as well. Sincerely, Josh Brugger, Owner of Priscilla's Gift.
