About the property

4 bd 2 ba Sleeps 8 -Right downtown -bike to the beach -totally remodeled in 2017

This 1800sq. ft. 1920's historic home in Grand Haven boasts personalized and tasteful decor with a complete remodel in 2017. This is an amenity-rich environment with 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, and sleeps 8 comfortably. There are beds for 12 but city regulations limit occupancy to 8 so you'll be able to spread out and sleep one person in the double and queen beds. This is the 3rd in a collection of downtown cottages called Suite Retreat, owned and operated by Amy Pereira. Check out our other listings at and Soon to open is another property steps from the beach in neighboring Spring Lake.

The layout of the 2-story house is as follows. On the main floor, there is a king bed in the master bedroom. The second bedroom on the main floor houses a full/double futon bed. Also on the main floor is the spacious living room with a large flat screen TV and plenty of comfortable seating. There is free wifi, a DVD player, an XBOX 360, and plenty of games and DVD’s to choose from. Despite being a historic home, this home boasts an open concept design for today's living. Situated between the living room and kitchen is a gracious dining room with seating for up to 12. The completely renovated full bath is conveniently situated for both bedrooms to share. And don't forget the huge covered front porch with outdoor seating enabling you to enjoy all that this quiet neighborhood has to offer.

Best of all, on the main floor, overlooking the back yard is the newly designed kitchen, completely remodeled in 2017, with new appliances, granite counters, eating bar and beautiful lighting and decor. The laundry room sits steps away in large basement. The kitchen also boasts a cubby storage system to house all your beach gear so it's ready for action to take just out the back door and into your car. The large, level, fully fenced back yard has a patio with a fire pit, gas grill, space for dining and sunning, and a huge grassy yard for outdoor games and kids antics. We can't wait for you to start making your own memories!

And that's just the main level. Up a beautiful staircase is a cozy sitting area tucked into the eaves allowing some of your guests to get away from the action and enjoy a quiet read. Down the private hall are two huge bedrooms, and a completely renovated 3/4 bath with walk-in shower and large double vanity. The first second floor bedroom boasts 2 double/full size beds and the second room, with access to the sun deck, has both 1 queen and 1 twin bed. There is ample off street parking for three cars in the driveway and more on the quiet street.

Be the first guests to stay in this house with a completely renovated kitchen and two completely remodeled bathrooms for summer 2017.

Now for the amenities. The fully stocked kitchen includes all the staples, condiments, and paper products you wouldn’t expect. There's no need to haul it from home or buy it once you're here. The well-appointed baths and washer/dryer make your stay here pleasant, and we supply shampoo and basic toiletries and laundry supplies. A large selection of games and books help pass the time and a complete selection of beach gear (towels, umbrella, boogie boards, sand toys, coolers and a wagon to haul it all there). Bed and bath linens and kitchen staples like spices and flour are right on site saving you time and money. Once you book, we'll provide you with a list of all the amenities to make packing a breeze.

This beautiful historic downtown home is just 3-blocks to the East end of Washington Avenue where all the main businesses and restaurants are located. Only 3-blocks brings you to the waterfront and the East end of the boardwalk where you'll find yourself in the middle of the tourist shops, fishing pier, marina, splash pad and farmers market each Saturday and Wednesday morning. You are about a mile and a quarter to the Grand Haven State Park & City Beach. Get there on the 2 bikes that are provided, the open-air hop-on-hop-off trolley, a level walk down the boardwalk , or your own car with ample parking at the state park.

I love this place!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent my second week here! This is a comfortable home, well-appointed and well-managed. Located in a great part of Grand Haven, it is convenient to downtown and the beaches. Try this home and you will make multiple visits like I have!

Lovely little home very close to town

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful experience at this rental. The home was updated and very clean, and we really appreciated all the beach gear, linens, and condiments that were provided. The 2 bikes offered aren't in the best working order but it is nice that they're provided, and there's a reasonably priced bike rental place just down the street. We definitely recommend this rental and would come here again!

Lovely Home

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved staying in this home. It has been updated & is beautiful. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star was because of the lack of air conditioning. Most of the windows, including the front door didn't have screens. Amy is a wonderful hostess and provided fans but it wasn't quite enough without being able to open the windows.

The house was perfect for our family. It was clean, roomy and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Met our expectations and beyond! The house was the perfect location for our family of 3 generations to come together, laugh, and have fun. The house was roomy enough, nice big kitchen and a dining room that accommodated us all. The location was within walking distance to everything--downtown, the beach, restaurants and stores. We hope that this becomes our annual "go-to" place to get away to. It was perfect! Thanks so much!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The Elliott house was perfect for our women's wkend. Even though we are all from the area, the location allowed us to be all together under one roof. The home accommodated 10 of us very well. The location was perfect. We were able to walk downtown and all around the town. Amy was so helpful and appreciated our suggestions for making the accommodations even better. Several of the women were interested for future reference when their own family groups come to visit. We'll remember the Elliott House for future women's wkends.

Owner's Response: Margaret: You're women's gathering was a super fun event to host. When I'd stop by with extra chairs or another coffee maker you were all having such enthusiastic conversation and uproars of laughter. You're feedback was helpful in guiding future decisions for my newest property @ Elliott I was so pleased to host your gathering and look forward to many more to come.
