We had a great time. It was hard to leave Grand Haven for the functions. Thanks for throwing in the side walk sale. Everyone left a little cash behind for the merchants.

Beautiful property and centrally located!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely vacation at this property. Madeline is very responsive and could not have been more gracious. The property is nicely appointed and has every convenience imaginable. Downtown is only a couple of short blocks away and the beach is a 10 minute walk. We are already planning our trip next year!

Beautiful property. Location was expectional!

  • 5 of 5

Property interior was beautiful. Was able to walk everywhere! We were very close to the main attractions & the downtown strip yet in a peaceful location. Easy, leisurely 5 minute drive to beach. The 2 main bedrooms were comfortable & nice. The 3rd bedroom off the kitchen was small for 2 teenage girls; would be OK for 2 small kids (or one adult) however. At one point we had 7 occupants in the condo yet never felt cramped. We also enjoyed walking around the peaceful neighborhood on evening walks. Very pleased with our vacation experience in Grand Haven. Thanks!!

Perfect location for a week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

The property is in the perfect location for walking to the downtown restaurants, the beach and to take coffee across the road to the boardwalk in the morning. It worked well when we had the family there for a few days and the deck was perfect for a larger family cookout. You'll need to make a Meijer or Walgreen run as there were only toiletries in one of the showers (soap and shampoo), also we had to buy a wine opener for the week. It's a comfortable space and except for a squeaky trundle bed the sleeping arrangements worked wonderfully. This was our second stay in one of these condos and undoubtedly we'll be back!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay. We did have a nice wine opener there. Thanks for letting me know it was missing. Hope to see you again. Best, Madeline
