About Robyn Vandenberg

I grew up in Grand Haven and have raised my family here. I love the pier and beach and all the activities Grand Haven has to offer

Robyn Vandenberg purchased this house in 1988

Why Robyn Vandenberg chose West Central

this house was bought for it's charm and location. Even though I have updated things, it still has the feel of yesteryear.

My family and I visited GH for a week in the summer. This is a great little cottage/apartment, close to everything. Plenty big for our family of 6. The owner was very hospitable and helpful. Definitely a great place for the money spent.

Useful and clean, right by downtown!

  • 4 of 5

This was a very reasonable price for a great location. No frills or amenities such as a dishwasher or laundry machines, but there is plenty of sleeping room, kitchen space (2 of them!) and hot water. The little deck is charming, and we were able to use a little Weber grill outside. The beds were comfortable and clean. The landlord was very nice and accommodating, and I hope we can work with her again.

Awesome place

  • 4 of 5

This place was perfect to stay in for a family of three. Only a few minute walk to the downtown area and a close drivable distance to the beach. The landlord was very nice and went out of her way to work with us. I highly recommend this property.

Downtown lodging

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I decided to stay in a summer rental because of the lack of hotels downtown and by the beach. We had a great time walking to all the restaurants downtown and not having to drive on the 4th. We stayed in the upstairs unit, the home was older, painted nicely and taken care of. We would stay here again.

Great location, good price, 1 star lodging

  • 2 of 5

We were a party of 6 , 4 adults and 2 teenagers. I have rented off online sights many times and am not new to the process. I am also a maintenance professional.

Plus's : Price was good. 2 block's from the board walk and down town , restaurant's, shops, Bars. beach and pier 1.5 miles away we walked and drove, state park sticker or P on plate required. unit was clean with linens. Coffee maker no microwave, owners were available by phone and in person if needed. Very easy to deal with and friendly . I stay in GH 4 to 7 nights every year for over 20yrs now and love the area.

Negatives: This is a very old home in need of updating I didn't expect a 3+ star house.

Confusing add 2 units on one listing thought I was getting sleeping for 10 ended up with sleeping for 6. 4 family members had to make other arraignments.

Was told the unit had AC , there was no AC on 2nd floor unit thankfully it was not a hot weekend for August not a huge deal, I did buy a fan for our stay. It was a boarder line problem, only a few windows with screens.

Trim and finishes are old and incomplete I could see into the walls along the floor no shoe moldings and in bathroom around mirror , There is a deck on the back but overgrown and not updated. Only on street or offsite parking available fairly close but not onsite. I did not make a big deal out of any of this or complain and enjoyed Grand Haven. This house could be very nice with some work done to it.

I would not rent again unless there is AC and finishes are completed on interior.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. This is our first year in summer rentals with this house and I appreciate the feed back! The air conditioner was available upon request and I obviously did not clarify that. I apologize for that. Central air would be a good option to offer on this house. The mystery of the missing micro wave has been solved and it is back. I agree that the ad is confusing. It is hard to convey on the listing that this is a 2 unit but can be rented as a whole house as well. I am working on making this more understandable. I am also working on those finishing touches and trim you are talking about, I know they are important to the esthetics. Again, I appreciate the feed back, it will help me improve the cottage and my guests experiences!!----- Robyn
