About Macall Smith

I grew up in Holland, Michigan. I loved growing up here so much that I stuck around to share the beautiful city with people like you.

Macall Smith purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Macall Smith chose West Central

This house is a dream house. Beautiful views of the Lake and located in my favorite city. I grew up working on houses with my dad and renting our cottage up North in Michigan as a kid. When this house came up, my dad and I decided to get back into it.

What makes this cottage unique

I am located in holland, I will be there in a moments notice if you have any request.

Get away to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Our recent stay at Beach House in Holland was one of the nicest visits to the area we have had. The house met all our needs; kitchen well equipped and made good use of the grill. Having two outdoor areas to relax and visit was appreciated. Our days started and ended on the beach! The sunsets were beautiful and we enjoyed visiting with local residents. Shops in town were nice and the local farmers market was a hit. Would plan this visit again!

Great time at the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome experience. While you're not right on the beach it is only a few steps away to community access. Great little area. We had six adults and two small children and had plenty of room. The owner was fantastic, when the coffee pot didn't work he brought a new one right over!!

We have already looked at weeks for next year!

Great Family Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (young kiddos) enjoyed our stay at this location. The house was very clean and had all proper amenities. A private beach and community playground were within walking distance. We enjoyed going to Holland State Park Beach and visiting downtown Holland. Do no miss Downtown Holland on a Thursday evening in the Summer - they have street performers on almost every corner. It was a great experience.

Very well kept and clean home and yard. Comfortable furniture and plenty of space for our family.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the close proximity to the beach especially with a little one under the age of 5. The owners were very friendly and checked in with us during the week to make sure all was well. Kitchen had almost every thing you may need (minus a pizza cutter :-) to whip up your favorite meals. Thoughtful owners left a bottle of wine and candy as a welcoming treat! Would definitely stay here again!
