The space

This is a beautiful, modern summer house directly on the best beach & water of Lake Michigan. It’s in the center of a private, gated community, just a short walk from Big Red Lighthouse.

Perfect for the whole family, this warm and inviting house was built and designed to complement the sandy beaches on which it resides. The interior has a beach theme, high ceilings, gorgeous hardwood floors, and lovely granite countertops in the spacious kitchen. There is a porch on the main level facing the water, perfect for enjoying a sunny afternoon with friends and family or a dinner outside. There is another porch connected to the master bedroom on the second floor. Facing Lake Michigan, this home features a stunning view of the blue open water, lighthouse and pier.

You will have everything you need to enjoy the beach at your fingertips. There are volleyball nets setup just down the beach and beach games in the basement. There are also plenty of chairs, umbrellas and towels. In the evening, we recommend you take a short walk down the shoreline to Big Red Lighthouse, stroll out onto the beautiful rocky pier to watch the sunset of a lifetime, night after night!

The 4-story beach house has 6 bedrooms, 8 beds and sleeps up to 12 comfortably. It has 2 large refrigerators and 2 large freezers and a full kitchen (dishwasher, stove, oven). Two large flat screen TVs and a HD Projector in the basement for movies. There is also a gym and treadmill in the basement, washer and dryer on the main floor and two grills behind the house for preparing home cooked meals.

The community is very welcoming and nicely maintained. Walking down the sidewalk, neighbors will offer a kind hello or a cheerful wave. Access to the community is maintained by a friendly security service paid for by the association, including a manned gate.

Downtown Holland is about a 15 minute drive away, where there are many restaurants and bars.

Lake Macatawa is just on the other side of the community, a short walk from the house.

Eldean Shipyard & Marina and Macatawa Bay Yacht Club are a 3 minute drive or a 10 minute walk towards Holland. The shipyard often has kayak and paddle board rentals, as well as a fun little food stand.

The Holland Farmers market is about 15 minutes away and is setup every Wednesday and Saturday from 8am to 3pm. The Holland Farmers Market features nearly 70 vendors offering freshly picked fruit and vegetables, plants, baked goods, spices, cheeses, meats, and fresh or dried flower arrangements.

Holland State Park is about 20 minutes away, on the other side of Lake Macatawa.

There is a grocery store about 10 minutes away from the house, with a large Meijer about 15-20 minutes away.

There are 4 parking spaces reserved for the house. Two are a 1 minute walk from the house. The other two are ten minute walk from the house.

**NOTE: Regarding the first ever booking that was cancelled by us: we listed our property on Airbnb one night in late June 2016 and enabled Instant Booking without having a very well updated calendar (not very smart on our part). We woke up the next morning to an instant book that we quickly realized conflicted with our availability. We contacted Maxx and he was understanding, we were apologetic. The whole thing occurred in less than 12h, and to our knowledge, Maxx's travel plans were not disrupted. We're militant about our calendar now - if we confirm you, you are at virtually no risk for being cancelled on. Please feel free to message us with your inquiry :)

Jefferys place was perfect for our family get away. We have children of all ages (9 months old - 32)and everyone thought it was a great place for us to stay. The house is right in the middle of a giant sand box with a spectacular view of Lake Michigan. We brought our two wave runners and were able to dock them near by, just a walk away. Jeffery helped us with all the things we needed to know. So helpful. In the evening we enjoyed the gorgeous sunsets right outside our door. We also enjoyed downtown Holland with all the boutiques, salons and Kilwins ice creamery.

This place is amazing! The location is absolutely perfect - right on the beach. The house is updated and in immaculate condition, super clean when we arrived and was big enough to fit all our our guests comfortably. Jeff was a great host - very accommodating, communicated well and made sure we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. We would definitely stay here again. If you're looking for an extremely nice place right on the beach with a fantastic host, this the place.
