My wife and I had a fantastic stay at this place. It's just a few houses away from a lake, so driving around the neighborhood was nice. But it's also very close to Grand Haven, so there are great shops, and a great beach only minutes away. The space was very cozy for the two of u…

I was charged $110 for a cleaning fee (for a 2 night stay) and then got the "Welcome letter" asking us to go through the back door to avoid messes. Take our shoes off before entering the house. Leave everything as we found it. Remove the linens and place in the laundry room. Tak…

Response from Frederick:
HI Donna, I am sorry that you were disappointed in your stay. I'd kindly like to ask that you review your booking charges. Our cleaning fee is $75, not $110 as you have stated here. If you were charged $110 for the cleaning fee, please contact me and l will arrange a refund with Airbnb. In our welcome letter, we ask the following - "If you have the time, please wash and dry any used bath, hand and kitchen towels. This will greatly help my house cleaner." This is not a requirement, but a request. I ask this from my guests because it will sometimes allow me to accommodate travelers' requests for early arrivals and check-ins as the bath towels take the longest to wash and dry. Our $75 cleaning fee may seem high. In my line of work, it is absolutely imperative that our properties are the cleanest they can be. Our guests expect that. In order for me to ensure that I provide the best, cleanest experience for all my guests, I pay my cleaning person a higher wage. I believe that our near perfect 5 star rating reflects this.

Our visit, while brief, was fantastic! Not only was the home cozy and clean, but it was stocked with the perfect entertainment (games and DVDs) for us to enjoy in the evenings.

The house was exactly what we had hoped for! Really nicely remodeled interior, close to the paved bike trail and great restaurants! Frederick was on the spot with his replies when we needed anything, and with local recommendations. Great Experience!

Great little place for 4 to stay comfortably for a long weekend. Quick access to bike trails and fenced in back yard gave us a place to keep the bikes! Loved Grand Haven and Spring Lake areas. Will be back when it's warmer!
