About Brenda Raphaelian

This is the second rental home for us on beautiful North Shore Drive...Also known as 'The Million Dollar Mile' - this custom home has been our pride and joy, and we have spared no expense. We live in this area and just love Grand Haven!

Brenda Raphaelian purchased this house in 2015

Why Brenda Raphaelian chose West Central

Location...Location...Location - Private 75 feet of beachfront on the BEST street in all of Grand Haven. There is a natural dune preserve directly across the street (great for hiking and spotting animials that live there). There are no steps or cliff to climb to access the beach, its a straight path down to the water, great for anyone of any age to access.

What makes this house unique

Our new custom home has lots of outdoor decks (different levels, private decks off the four bedrooms facing the lakefront) and ground level patio area. There is an amazing outdoor fireplace on the main floor deck, and at night with the lake view and sunsets, amazing!

Best house ever

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough great things about the house. Brenda has thought of everything. A contemporary designed house that has everything you would want in a beach rental - perfect view of lake michigan, outdoor fireplace on the deck, boardgames, control 4 sound system, huge dining area inside and outside, bunk beds for kids, etc. I could go on and on...

Highly recommend to anyone looking for a luxurious beach rental. And Brenda was a pleasure to work with. Thanks again. Hope to make it back there sometime in the future.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Celebrating milestone birthday with family. Brenda truly has a house that wants for nothing. Upon arrival we noticed the home was meticulously clean, everything was organized and welcoming.

5 of our grandchildren ages 6-11 loved the bunk beds and having the lower level to themselves. Our 8 month old had a pack and play/high chair etc. provided by the house. We had as many as 8 adults at one time and the fold out bed on the second level came in handy. Everyone was comfortable as there is ample room here.

This is truly a luxury rental with great, well stocked kitchen, multiple decks where you can have some privacy, iPad controlled sound, etc. The beach is easily accessible and is a relatively short, flat walk from the house. The kids loved swimming and playing there.

Located close to park and hiking which we took advantage of. Make sure to get to the Grand Haven Farmer's Market on Thursday.

Brenda was readily accessible to answer questions. This was a memorable experience and the home made it great. Highly recommend!

My Family(My wife and I-5 Adult children, 3 spouses, and 6 Grandchildren) all had a wonderful time and couldn't say enough about what a great place we had found. Being from Grand Rapids we had a lot of friends and family out and never felt the least bit crowded. Brenda has done a great job of making sure everything you could possibly want is there. She also makes herself available if there is any thing you need. This is as close to the perfect beach house as you will ever get! LK

We rented this house to stay at for our daughter's wedding that took place at the Spring Lake Country Club. We came from San Diego with our other 2 adult children and were joined by close friends from South Carolina and Grand Rapids. We wanted to spend time together so decided to rent a house rather than stay in hotel rooms. We could not have chosen a better place!!! First, I'd say that we would agree with all the other reviews about the house and its amenities. It is elegantly comfortable, pristine, and well stocked with everything you could need for a stress free vacation. Working with Brenda was also really easy. Her enthusiasm is contagious so you cannot help feeling really excited when you arrive to find this home which is open and spacious providing privacy while inviting camaraderie, relationship and the creation of memories. With the 3 levels, there is plenty of space for gathering yet when you need some alone time, you can escape to your personal space. What we all liked the most about this house were the windows. Looking out at the water, it felt like we were part of nature. This brought a sense of serenity and awe to an already wonderful but stressful weekend of celebration. We stayed a couple of days after the wedding and enjoyed every minute. We will be back next year to really relax. I could even see sitting in front of the fire in the winter, reading books, eating and drinking with friends, catching up on life and letting the stress of the world wash away. This vacation spot is fun, beautiful, relaxing, romantic AND there are lots of things to do along the lake shore if you want more to explore. Whatever you need at the time can be experienced here.

Beautiful home, amenities, location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of 16, including 7 kids, and felt perfectly comfortable at this home. There are three separate indoor living spaces, making it easy for people to spread out and not feel cramped. Everything from the bedding to the kitchen supplies to the board game selection was high-quality and very clean. Brenda had thought through many small details (citronella candles outside, beach toys, restaurant recommendations) and had everything we could have wanted for our five-month-old as well (portacrib, high chair, exersaucer, etc.).

Beyond the beauty and comfort of the home inside, the location on the beach was incredible. There was plenty of outdoor seating for meals, a great beach area for the kids to play in (including a space next to the house where they could be in full view), and beautiful sunset views. We look forward to the opportunity to stay here again!

Spectacular beach vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This beach rental home is amazing! This beautiful home was the perfect place to spend a summer week with our family of eight adults and a baby. There was more than enough room for everyone to have their own space, yet large rooms to gather and hang out together. It easily would accommodate many more people than we had.

We loved the gorgeous, expansive views of Lake Michigan from inside the house and from the spacious decks. And only steps away from the beach.

We can't say enough good things about our time there...everything in the site's description of the home and ammentiies is accurate: awesome gourmet kitchen, beautifully decorated-all new, comfortable beds, large bathrooms, many TVs...the list goes on!! It was beyond our expectations. And the location couldn't be better. Just a short drive to shopping, grocery stores, many restaurants, recreation etc.

A bonus is a friendly, professional owner to help with your stay. She was great from the start of my inquiries,all the way through our week there.

We highly recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in the beautiful area of west Michigan. We would go back in a heart beat! A very memorable time for our family. The only disappointment was not having more time there!

Beautiful Grand Haven with its freshwater sandy beaches, bike baths and hiking in the nature preserve which is located right across the street. Spend a lazy day walking and hanging out with a good book at your own private beach. Downtown Grand Haven is less than a 10 minute drive, perfect for shopping the boutiques, bakeries and restaurants. The downtown Farmers Market is open on Wednesday and Saturdays. The Farmers Market is located right where you could charter a fishing boat for the day at Chinook Pier. There is miniature golfing at the pier too.

Grand Haven is located in Ottawa County which boasts over 11 golf courses and neighboring Muskegon County has nine. Its a golfers paradise.
