Rent this entire just-refreshed 800 sq ft home just a short walk from Brucker Beach, a small public beach on Lake Michigan. Swim at Brucker Beach or walk south (10 min) along the water to Rosy Mound beach and nature area or north (25 min) to Grand Haven beach. House is a short-drive or bike-ride, or a 30 min walk, from downtown Grand Haven. Rents with washer, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, fridge, toaster, coffee-maker, backyard fire-pit, charcoal grill, popcorn-maker & big-screen home theater!
This small cottage has space to comfortably sleep up to 4 in the two bedrooms (bedroom 1 has a queen bed, bedroom 2 has a double bed). If you are happy squeezing-in and sharing the single bathroom then up to 3 more can stay if they don't mind sleeping in the living-room on a futon (sleeps 2) and a convertible sofa (sleeps 1 - is not all that comfortable).
Have some rain during your stay? Don’t worry, enjoy the included home-theater with 8-foot screen and ceiling-mounted projector! Bring your Blu-Rays or DVDs, rent some locally, or use your own Netflix, Amazon Prime or Hulu accounts. Bring your PS3 games and play them on the big-screen (a handful of games are provided. House does not rent with a traditional TV.)
Location is a 30-minute drive or less from GVSU (as well as a number of other institutions of higher-learning), Michigan Adventure amusement park, Muskegon, Spring Lake, Holland, Allendale, etc. and just 45-minutes from Saugatuck (worth the trip). A window air-conditioner is installed in a central location and is sufficient to cool the entire house (being close to the lake however, it is rarely necessary).
This location is in the Brucker Beach neighborhood and is only a 3-block walk from the beach. Brucker Beach is a tiny public beach on Lake Michigan, great for a short visit, swim, or to watch the sunset, but it is too small for a whole-day outing for the family (it occasionally gets quite busy as well). People often use Brucker Beach as an access-point to other nearby beaches north or south along the lakeshore. Walking the water-line gains you access to the much larger Rosy Mound beach and nature area a short walk to the south, and Grand Haven Beach to the north. Or walk the beach all the way into town for the festivities, then walk back at sunset to enjoy the beauty of Lake Michigan.
Acesso de hóspedes

Outras coisas a ter em conta
This is a small home built in the early 1950's which has just been fully refreshed. Enjoy the new flooring and paint throughout, as well as many other recent updates and renovations (freshly stained deck, new kitchen counter, etc.)
Rents with full appliances which you may use for your convenience during your stay. You are provided with freshly cleaned bedclothes and towels at the start of your stay, but will be responsible for washing and drying them yourselves during your stay if you wish (laundry detergent and dryer sheets are provided). We also provide a small selection of beach-towels for those taking advantage of the nearby beaches.
Note that for the convenience of guests we have set the checkout time fairly late at 1:00pm and the check-in time as early as 3:00pm. Hopefully this will allow guests to enjoy the most of their time here. But keep in mind that if your are scheduled to arrive directly at 3:00pm the house-cleaning may overlap somewhat with your arrival. For those arriving in town earlier or leaving later, we allow luggage storage in the unattached garage.
We will consider heavily-discounted long-term rentals outside of tourist season. (This would be a great place for a visiting Professor working at any of the nearby colleges and universities, for example.)
House is well-suited for families and extended families, but may be less suitable large groups of adults (small home, single bathroom, neighborhood setting). Quiet time after 10:00pm - coming and going or using the fire-pit is fine, but please be respectful of the neighborhood setting and keep noise to a minimum after 10:00pm.
