BVW Vacation Rentals
Great Property for Family Get Together
This property proved to be nearly ideal for our group of 7 adults and 5 children. The property was very clean upon arrival and was equipped with just about everything we needed.
The kitchen setup was particularly impressive, with more dishes, glassware, silverware, pots and pans (all pretty much matching, I might add) than we could use in a day and more than I have ever seen in a rental. Given that our crew likes to cook, we did bring some supplemental items, but could have gotten by without. The dining table was ample for 8, so with the 12 of us we dined in shifts - no problem. Did have occasional difficulty getting the dishwasher to fire up. Kitchen, pantry, powder room, DR, family room, den and deck are all on Level 2.
The upstairs BR (level 3) was really nice and private with four modest-sized balconies, washer and dryer. Perfect for a couple. The main bed was comfortable but quite high and not recommended for someone with a mobility issue. The day bed was very comfortable. Extraordinary amount of closet and drawer space, but could have used a few more hangers. Ample vanity space with dual sinks. Modern shower, though had some difficulty getting the water temp so it wasn't too hot. Didn't use the sauna, so no comment. No interior chair, but two on one of the balconies.
Level 3 comprised the remaining two BRs and Bunkroom, a separate bath and a laundry room. The sleeping areas were fairly modest in size, and I was told that the beds in the Bunkroom were not that comfortable, but useable.
We appreciated the alert about potential beach conditions. The first two days the beach was virtually non-existent due to weather/water conditions, but after that we were able to stroll down a mile of so of sandy beach, though it was on the narrow side.
The neighborhood was quiet and all properties nicely maintained. Parking for 4 vehicles.
Only three stars for communication for 2 reasons: 1. My email three weeks in advance with questions about the property and area went unanswered. 2. When the WiFi password sent in the Vrbo welcome message didn't work, we called and were told in a somewhat less than welcoming tone to look in "the book, it's all in the book". Sure enough there was a different password in the book that did connect.. Those items aside, all was good.
Would highly recommend and would consider returning.
Girls weekend! We had a blast! The location was perfect, what could be better than Lake Michigan views. Best of both worlds, right on the beach and close to downtown Holland. The cottage was awesome, worked out well for our group.
Wonderful family vacation! great place for our family to enjoy time together!
Loved the main level kitchen and living space. The deck was perfect for entertaining and the lower level slept family comfortably. The upper level was open and the views spectacular. Upper shower was too hot to use so we had to all use the other 2 showers :(... but that was the only negative we had! Hoping to get back again
Perfect location,sunsets galore,
This was a perfect home for our family of nine, including three grandkids. The accommodations were roomy and comfortable. The reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is that the master bedroom was very strange, with the bathroom in the bedroom with no doors ..just one big bedroom, bathroom, toilet exposed! Weird, and uncomfortable. Also, the open shower was not working, as the cold faucet didn’t work so the water was scalding hot and the shower not usable.
We just used the kids shower, but it was inconvenient.
Also, I would also recommend bringing your own pots and pans if you plan on cooking, as their selection is very small and old, .....(scratched Teflon and no pots larger then 4qt)....forget making pasta!
These are minor negatives, as compared to the many lovely things and wonderful memories made in this very cool home.
Perfect house, locale & weather, including meteor shower. You get what you pay for, well worth it.
It worked well for 4 couples plus a niece. Master bath open to whole room, odd without door. Well equipped, everything worked. Will try to stay 2 weeks next time around.
Great House Fantastic Location
The house is exactly like the pictures show. It was clean with plenty of towels and beach towels. Our two sons and their families had a wonderful week----so much so they want to do it again next year. All of us highly recommend the house for a great beach experience.
