About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8, Grand Haven's North Shore

This contemporary home has everything you need for a wonderful vacation. Sunset Views at Summerset is a tri-level home which features an open floor plan, three decks and offers unmatched views of Lake Michigan and its spectacular sunsets. It is located on the North Shore of Grand Haven with deeded access to a private, sandy Lake Michigan beach. You’re just 100 yards from dipping your toes in the water! You get the best of both worlds -- quiet, beautiful dunes and beaches, yet just a 10 minute drive from downtown Grand Haven, which features quaint shops and restaurants. Plus a large grass lawn perfect for a game of croquet or volleyball. We have beds for 8 people plus two double air mattresses for the first floor bedroom.

The third floor is home to the Master Bedroom and Bath, and features maple flooring, a Queen bed, tile shower, double sink and jacuzzi tub. This floor also features a North deck and private South deck perfect for sunset watching.

The second floor is home to an open kitchen/dining/sitting area that features a leather coach, dining room table that seats 8, and island that seats 4. French doors open onto a deck with additional seating for 4 and a grill so you can socialize while you cook. The kitchen is fully appointed with dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, convection oven, gas stove top, blender, mixer, crock pots, waffle maker, electric griddle, cookware, bakeware, barware and basic spices. The living room features a television with AT&T U-verse, stereo, gas fireplace and ample seating. Two bedrooms are located on this floor -- one with a double bed and the other with two twin beds, as well as a full bath.

The first floor features another full bath, laundry room with over-sized washer and dryer, and a large bedroom/recreation room with a Queen bed, television with AT&T U-verse, and a fusbol table. This room offers space for air mattresses to expand the sleeping space from 8 (beds) to 12 (+4 kids) -- many of our renters make this the kid's crash pad!

Other Amenities: There is a four-stall garage and ample parking for four vehicles max and we've provided bikes, beach chairs and beach toys for our guests' enjoyment. Kitchen, bathroom and bedroom linens also are provided, but bring your own beach towels!

About Bob and Heidi Kaminski

My husband I both grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We purchased this dream home together and were married on the property in 2001 in front of more than 200 guests.

Bob and Heidi Kaminski purchased this house in 2001

Why Bob and Heidi Kaminski chose West Central

After searching the lake shore from Saugatuck to North Muskegon, we decided on this home because of its unmatched Lake Michigan views, an open floor plan that's ideal for entertaining, and is just 100 yards away from a private, deeded Lake Michigan beach.

What makes this house unique

The home has three separate decks and a large grass lawn that's ideal for a game of croquet or volleyball.

Wonderful Vacation Home with Lake Michigan access!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family just returned from a week at this amazing cottage. We have selected different "cottages" over the past 4 summers on Lake Michigan and this was by far the nicest as far as living space goes! We had grand parents and two adult children with their children and the cottage accommodated all families perfectly. The home had everything one needs except the food to begin the vacation! We did not really need to bring anything extra at all!

Everything was in great condition and high class. Furniture, beds, bedding and linens were comfortable and plentiful. The kitchen had anything you could possible need! Plenty of eating and cooking space!

There are three decks to view the lake from and to eat and play cards. The third story deck off the master bedroom was perfect for viewing the wonderful Lake Michigan sunsets! The home was perfect for us!

The beach was beautiful. It is a little hike from home to beach and through sandy train and down some steps ( 3-4 minute walk). Lake Michigan beaches fluctuate daily so one never knows how much beach front there will be but the access had an area cut out that was enough for everyone and far enough from the water to enjoy. Beach is clean, water is shallow enough but gets deeper so good for everyone. Clean, refreshing water!

Bikes, beach chairs, rafts etc were all available.

Grand Haven is a great little beach town and we enjoyed the Pronto Pups, State Park, Playground at the Y, and shopping.

If our lives permit, we would like to return to this amazing cottage. Bob and Heidi were wonderful and all questions etc were answered promptly.

Our first VRBO experience was a 10!

Thank you for a wonderful family week!

Great House in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We have rented from Bob and Heidi for several years and have always enjoyed our stay at their beautiful house.

This is a great location for renters with small children as it is a short walk down to the private deeded beach access and the garage is well stocked with beach toys, bikes, and floats. it also has a large, secluded real grass yard, which is a special bonus in this beach area, for kids to play and burn off energy.

Our dealings with Bob and Heidi have all been positive and the neighbors have always been very welcoming and accommodating.

Beach house memories, Lake breeze on the deck

  • 5 of 5

We have been fortunate to spend 2 weeks in July here for past several years--wonderful home, bright open floor plan, beautifully decorated yet homey and comfortable--all the best of beach living. A short walk across the street to private Lake Michigan beach area, then when you've had enough sun and surf, you can rinse the sand off your feet in the driveway and relax in comfort on one of the spacious decks. The 3 decks are fabulous, well equipped with chairs, allowing you all hours of sun and shade as desired, cool breezes, glorious Michigan sunsets. Kitchen/dining area offers formal seating for entire family, but our favorite spot is the large kitchen island, perfect for setting up appetizers and drinks while the burgers or steaks are cooking on adjoining deck gas grill. Heidi and Bob are the most responsive owners we have ever dealt with in our years of lake-living rentals, and they take such care to be sure the home is pristine with everything in great working order, so all you have to do is sit back and relax. Would recommend this property with no reservations.
