Really cute, clean and conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here from 8/14 - 8/17/17 with my husband and two kids ages 11 and 13. We had a great stay!! The cottage was very well kept and we all felt comfortable there. There was a lot of construction in a nearby street, (Center St.) but we were able to avoid it and still visit Oval Beach, downtown Saugatuck, downtown Douglas, downtown Holland and Tunnel Park beach. We even enjoyed s'mores in the back yard one evening. So fun!!

Nicely updated

  • 5 of 5

The duplex is nicely updated. The place was very clean and had the necessary essentials for making meals. The beach is only about 5 minutes from there. It is a small beach and limited parking so being fairly close was helpful.

Clean, cute and charming. Great location!

This cottage was very clean and cute and suited our needs perfectly. The owner promptly answered any questions we had. We did not know this was an attached unit- it was no problem though. Will definitely be returning!
