Laura Ayers purchased this house in 2005

Why Laura Ayers chose Western Michigan

The assets of this property is location, location, location. You can walk to most places and enjoy the sites of the town. Out of the main drag, but right in the heart of the action.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the Madison House and would recommend this property to anyone! It was very close to town and in a very quiet neighborhood. The entire house was extremely clean and full of charm! Plenty of space for our family of 5! Laura and Gary were extremely hospitable. We had one issue with the wi-fi and in a matter of minutes Laura was over fixing the problem for us. They even mailed a sock we left behind! Great people, great house, and a great price! We just couldn't have asked for a better place to stay! Thank you Laura and Gary!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family of 4! Which included 2 under the age of 3! The owners were extremely proficient with their communication from the start of booking the rental to check in and check out. Also very accommodating on short notice of allowing us to rent 1 night earlier than agreed upon. The house has everything you would need. Almost as if we lived there. We were in town to visit family and the house was able to entertain all family members with the front yard and back yard! Very spacious. Also this house is walking distance to downtown Grand Haven and the Pier. Four miles round trip walk/run to Pier.

We will be back!

Excellent Rental!

  • 5 of 5

Extremely clean with everything you could possibly need. Laura and Gary were wonderful and a phone call away if needed. The home is in walking distance from downtown. Can't wait to return!

Great Getaway for Our Family

  • 5 of 5

We could only be gone for a couple of nights and the owner accommodated us with a nightly rental rate. The home was clean, well maintained, and very comfortable. We loved Grand Haven and how close this home was to downtown. The owner even mailed us a swimsuit that we left in the dryer without us even asking about it. We would love to stay there again!

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We were in Grand Haven for a weekend wedding and found this adorable house to rent. It was clean, updated, and perfect for our family. Laura and her husband were very kind and informative. I would definitely rent this place again. It was really nice.

Home Owners You'd Want to Rent From

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay due to having responsible home owners to work with. The owner was there upon arrival to show me around and hand off the key and was there to check me out at the end of the rental to return my deposit check. There were issues all week with the wifi not working properly and the home owners tried to address it with Charter and by coming over to try to get it working. The only other suggestion I could make is that the mattresses are not very supportive and the pillows in the master are flat and need replacing. The home is in an area that is not a far walk from downtown and is very convenient. I would rent from Laura and Gary again in a heartbeat. They were really nice to work with.
