Dreams Come True
Fun in the Sun
The owners were top notch and very thoughtful, providing excellent customer service which made our vacation so enjoyable. The location is ideal and the house had everything that we needed for a relaxing, peaceful week. We really enjoyed the sunsets, being right by the beach and the water was perfect. The Lake House for dinner and breakfast was fantastic. I have rented homes for years and this is a special place. I would highly recommend The Little Red Cottage.
We toured the area,had lunches at various Marinas,particularly Dockers that was only 5 minutes away,visited Grand Haven and Holland plus the local farmers market. At night we sat in the quiet back yard,enjoyed a glass of wine and toasted another great day.We barb-b-cued our supper and /or made a fire to toast marshmallows and to relax for the evening.
The owners of the cottage were very helpful when we needed assistance as you may when you're far from home.We only had to contact them twice over minor matters in the first couple of days and both times they helped us immediately. They were friendly and generous.I would definitely recommend the Little Red cottage to couples,small families and/or pet owners. Herm ...Cambridge Ontario
Positives and negatives
Now the negatives. The nearby restaurants are fair at best. The exception is Handsome Henry's, which has great ribs. If you are not familiar with the area, be careful when looking for restaurants and stores, as it is easy to cross the line into a very bad area of Muskegon. By bad, I mean scary. We couldn't get a single tv station to come in, and there is no WiFi. They did not provide enough towels for one week, so we did many loads of laundry. Ditto with the toilet paper (I called the owner about that, and he brought some over). We parked in the back so our dog wouldn't have to climb the stairs in front (they should provide directions on how to get to the back; it is not accessible from the front of the house). Many times we couldn't get out, due to a neighbor parking cars along the narrow public access. I don't know what a previous reviewer was talking about when he mentioned the great landscaping. That was one of the first things I noticed. It is not kept up. It wouldn't take much to plant some grass seed and some flowers. The basement appears to have a chronic back-up problem. We found toilet paper down by the laundry, as if the drain had overflowed, then receded back down. Since there are large fans & a dehumidifier down there, I imagine this happens all the time. Not sanitary. After making a request the night before our departure to have an extra hour to check out, we were greeted with a terse message from the property manager to "get OUTTA there by 10 at the latest", and to strip the beds, do the dishes, and run the dishwasher to help out the cleaning crew. Considering there are many other rentals along Lake Michigan, next time we will choose one where our business is appreciated, and the customer comes first.
