About Josh & Jen Brugger

Josh is a third generation Grand Haven resident who owns a local building company. Jen grew up in Maryland, Ethiopia, and Kenya. She runs Priscilla's Gift Rentals and volunteers at their boys' school. Both love Grand Haven in the summer, but especially in fall when the leaves start to turn. 2016 is the first summer the third floor will be available.

Josh & Jen Brugger purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Josh & Jen Brugger chose Grand Haven

Location... And we know that everyone says location. We really mean it. You are a stones throw from the beach and short walk to downtown and the historic pier. Prospect is nicely located just off the main drag so it's not as crazy as many other places right on Harbor.

We purchased the historic home in 2013 and have been busy updating and remodeling and making it one of the best places for a family vacation in Grand Haven. There's a bike rack out front where you can lock up your own bikes. You can catch the historic trolley from across the street at the Grand Haven Stage Park and take it along the shoreline and river right to down town. You can drive in, park, and leave you car for the week while you enjoy Grand Haven and it's nationally renowned beach and waterfront.

Location and views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed being across the street from the beach and being able to see the lighthouses and freighters and boats from the apartment. Everything was comfortable, clean, and fairly new. We also enjoyed walking to restaurants and the musical fountain show, Josh and Jen are very nice to work with and have thought of most everything to make your stay enjoyable.

It was perfect and all of the family we had for dinner one night loved it also.

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect week. The location was excellent with walking distance to the beach, dining, and downtown. The only problem was that the refrigerator decided to give up Thursday night but Josh got another fridge to tide us over until he get a new refrigerator the very next day. It really could not have been a better vacation spot. Quiet for the baby that was with us and great for the other two grandkids to experience the beach for the first time.

Grandma's Weekend Success

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time at Josh and Jen's place in Grand Haven. My daughter and her girls sure enjoyed their time too. The apartment was clean and tidy. The decorating was just right for a beach vacation spot. We hope to come back in the summer. Thank you so much!

Great Fall Getaway

Nice weekend break. Josh and Jen are wonderful hosts who thought of everything. They even put a bottle of champagne in the fridge to help us celebrate our anniversary. Can't wait to come back next fall.

Family of 4 plus 2

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Grand Haven at Priscilla's gift. The views ARE amazing. We were so close to the lake we could hear the waves outside our bedroom window... and the sunsets were breathtaking. Our boys (10 and 8) had two of their friends join us. They had fun in the hot tub and took turns in the top "bunks" in the bedroom. The top bunks are hanging from the ceiling. Very cool. We brought our bikes and locked them to the bike rack out front. Had a great time and look forward to coming back next year.
