Great Place, Great Location.

Review by Jeremy T.
The house was very nice. Everything we needed. Location was awesome. Close by everything. Can't be beat. Wouldn't change a thing!
5 out of 5 stars

Lots of Room for family....great location

Review by Daniel M.
We really loved the Condo The location was excellent. Just two blocks from downtown and close to restaurants. Dairy Treat was an added bonus just a minute walk away. There is so much room in this condo, and the master suite was private with a nice shower. It is also a very quiet location. The only negative was that the condo was not very clean. The kitchen sink was black and filthy on the bottom of it. It looked like stains from ages of use. We however got some comet cleanser and used lots of elbow grease and it was perfectly clean and white when we were done. Whoever cleaned the condo obviously never cleaned that sink. There was urine on the floor all around the upstairs toilet. That was pretty disgusting. The counter tops and dining table were very sticky. The floors had not been swept in the bathrooms as there was debris on the floors. I did tell them about it on our 3rd day there and they said if I had called sooner they would have come by to check. I just did a lot of house cleaning the day we checked in, The place is great....just be sure to call the management if you check into a dirty place,

LOVE!

Review by Melissa P.
It was easy to book, and stay. The house was lovely, and central to Grand Haven. The pool was SMALL but great to dip and cool off. Plus most of our time was spent at the beautiful beach which was minutes away!

Hi Melissa - thank you for the review. Glad to hear you enjoyed your experience at Lake Effect, please come back and stay with us again soon.

Beautiful Home!

Review by Roxanne R.
This place welcomes you the minute you step through the door! The decor is simple but stylish. There was plenty of room for me and my theee granddaughters. My sister came to visit one night and it worked very well. The kitchen is well stocked and we found little extras that made it nice. The location is perfect. Close to downtown and the beach! The only small complaint would be the twin beds upstairs. My teenage granddaughters who are small gals said they could feel the springs in the beds and it wasn’t great. But other than that it was perfect.

Restful home in an excellent location

Review by Harold R.
Excellent location and home near the river, evening light display, Farmer's Market, ice cream, downtown, and walkable to the beach. Home was clean and had everything we needed ... even one thing we forgot! We forgot to bring a booster chair for our 15-month old grandson and Unsalted Vacations had clean one in the garage!
