We loved our stay in this quiet neighborhood. The beach was perfect and the house had everything we needed.

This cottage was perfectly clean, which made my wife very happy. Everything that we needed to prepare our meals was provided. This is a great location with an awesome section of private beach for the small group of residents, we usually had the beach literally completely to ourselves. Got to meet most of the neighbors and had some great chats, all were very friendly. A great location for outdoor adventures! Mark is very helpful and we appreciate him being close by and available if needed. We definitely want to come back!

This cabin has great views and access to Lake Michigan and is about 10 minutes away from downtown Holland, Holland State Park, Mt Pisgah and Lake Macatawa. Loved the miles of shaded paths for walking, running, biking. Beautifully maintained and clean area. The cabin is smaller, yet efficient and felt spacious. Plenty of couch/table seating area with the bonus sun-room. The owners were great to work with and very responsive. I would stay here again.

Great stay with nice beach access down quite a few stairs, but this is not unusual as most neighborhoods are built at the top of the dunes. We had been to Holland before and knew to expect this. If you’re not familiar with the area just know there’s 50+ steps but it’s worth the climb because the beach is private. The house was clean and cozy with a nice sunroom in the front and deck in the back with yard and swing set and fire pit. We didn’t use the fire pit but there were chairs and firewood to use so would be nice to use during cooler evenings. This is not a large house but is accurately depicted in the photos. The only challenge we had is that the bathroom is quite small with nowhere to keep your items. There’s really nothing that can be done about it without adding on. Maybe a small set of storage drawers outside the bathroom would help but that was the only issue we had. There’s also laundry and beach items (chairs, toys for kids, umbrella) available, which is nice to have. There were also plenty of beach towels provided which is nice. This is a great property for a couple or family of 3 or 4. There’s room for 6 (2 sets of bunk beds in one room) but since Park Township has decided to only allow rentals of 30+ days, I think this would be too tight for more than 4 people for that long. We didn’t contact the owner during our stay as we didn’t have any issues -everything was great. Before we arrived, he was easy to communicate with and responded to our questions quickly.

We had a truly fantastic stay at this Lake MI cottage. It was smaller than I expected based on the square footage listed, but it was incredibly well laid out for the small size that it is. I think it's the perfect size for a beach cottage, and there is so much outdoor space to use as well! There's a nice little sunroom off of the house, a huge back deck with both a large picnic table and a kids picnic table, a swing set, fire pit with ample seating options, etc. One of the upper bunk beds doesn't have a full railing, and I really don't think it's safe for kids to be sleeping on. Mine would easily wiggle their way right out of the bed in their sleep. But I could tell from the image of the beds in the listing that it was going to be this way, and there were still enough beds for our three kids to sleep on without that one top bunk. The couch also apparently folds out into a bed. We didn't have to use it at all, but that helps add extra sleeping space if you need it! The location could not possible be better for the price that you'll pay to stay here! It's a super quiet area, right next to a dead end road so almost no traffic actually makes it back here. The house is about as close as you can get to be the beach without actually being ON the beach, and you can even catch views of the lake from some of the windows, the back porch, and the front patio! There is a new house being built across the street, so when we stayed (beginning of August 2022) there was a lot of construction going on and this obviously meant big trucks and lots of noise. But since we were there to spend our time at the beach, it wasn't an issue. And when we were at the cottage during the crews working hours, our kids loved getting to watch a house being built! There are multiple stores, restaurants, and things to do in the area all within about 15 minutes or less of driving distance. And the drive is so pretty that it feels like less than that! I really can't say enough good things about our stay here. My one tip would be to save the check in information and WiFi login before you arrive, because we had absolutely NO cell phone service in the neighborhood. But once we got logged in to the WiFi we had no issues with it when we were at the house, and it was nice to not have the distraction of our phones when we were on the beach! We absolutely loved our stay here, and we hope to spend more vacations here in the future! I have already started recommending this spot to others! :)

The place works well for our family, enough beds and 2 parking spots, back yard playground and steps away from the beach. The power had been out before we arrived after a storm but Mark was very communicative and luckily it was restored before we arrived. We brought our bikes to take advantage of local trails. Blueberry farm 6 minutes away, downtown Holland 15-20 minutes for some great local restaurants. We will be back!

This property is a gem! The private beach is gorgeous and we spent a lot of time there. Downtown Holland was about 10-15 min away and we enjoyed some meals and shopping there. The kids loved Dutch Village, which was also about 10 min away. The house was perfect for my family of four, clean, we enjoyed the fire pit, playground equipment, and beach chairs, sand toys, etc. there were only two cons to this property 1) it is a LOT of stairs to the beach, it’s true of all the properties in the area, wasn’t a big deal for us but if you had mobility issues it would be a problem. 2) the queen bed was really firm, it wasn’t very comfortable for us, but if you like a firm bed you would be fine! Overall, we had a fantastic time and 10/10 would stay again!

We enjoyed our time at the cottage very much. Although a few more dishes would be nice, only 2 bowls and very limited silverware
