Hilltop Getaway

Review by Angie M.
The location is awesome although would not recommend to older people or even very young children there is a lot of unevenness in the yard. Some general maintenance would go a long way for this property. The view is awesome but all the shrubbery around the home needs to be groomed there are a lot of uneven patio blocks and stairs and handrails need attention. ( shrubbery growing up under the front stairs could cause trip hazards) The inside is very very dated but you don’t really spend a lot of time indoors anyways. We read previous reviews and brought our own circulating fans which worked pretty good with the existing air conditioning units. Owner should invest in some blinds for the main level as the sun really heats it up in there during the day.We weren’t that impressed with housekeeping as the silverware trays had crumbs and syrup or ketchup or something on them so we had to clean all that. When searching for a dropped pill on the floor, found a whole pop tarts and some other garbage under bed. The downstairs air conditioner didn’t seem to be operating very well so we looked at the filter which was filthy. Just seems like basic housekeeping checks weren’t being done. Fortunately these type of issues can be rectified.All had a good time and overall I would recommend this home. Just know what you’re getting into regarding the location being on a very steep hill.

We apologize for these cleaning mistakes, as they aren't up to our cleaning standards. We hope we get the opportunity to host you again in the same or different unit. Thank you for staying with us though!

Great views

Review by Jack W.
We have been vacationing at Hilltop Retreat for the past 15 years. The location is great, close to beach, short walk to downtown &pier. The view is unbelievable! The new owner continues to update the cottage to make it more enjoyable.

We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and the owner hopes to continue to update different areas at a time. We are excited to host you in the future!

Location is AMAZING, house is a little worn

Review by Rebecca V.
We used to live in Grand Haven, so we were excited to spend some time here and show our kids the town that we fell in love in. The location was AMAZING. The views are incredible. The house.....hmmmm. Let me say that the house was really clean. Thank you for that, as it went a long way! The beds were comfortable and the sheets/blankets were soft and pleasant. The pillows were a bit flimsy, but I know it is a rental and if you have nice pillows they have a tendency to grow legs and leave with renters. The house itself is old, worn and shifting on its foundation. Doors do not close, stairs are shifting and appear to be unsafe. The kitchen is hardly stocked, and very mismatched. I am so glad we planned to eat dinners out, as I would not have liked to cook in there. We had to buy coffee mugs cuz there was only 3 of them. We had a great time and for that I appreciate.

Excellent stay!! Location is amazing!!!

Review by Julie N.
My family of 5 had plenty of room to spread out and had a great experience at this rental. Very close to walk to so much in the area, or just chill on the deck and enjoying the great view. With 2 runners in the family, they could not have felt safer running anywhere in the area, no matter the time and great parks not far. Everyone in Grand Haven was so very nice. Updated furniture was great. We had deer visiting daily, a turkey and her 5 babies and black squirrels daily too, which was so great being in a neighborhood 1 block from the lake. Lots of foot/bike traffic to tackle the steep hill of the house location. There was a few minor issues that arose, but nothing big and Unsalted Vacations was on top of it as soon as I informed them and they kept me updated. The management company was excellent! When trying to bake in the upstairs oven, very hard to tell what the temperature was as the dial has no numbers to tell. Luckily, there was an oven thermometer in the drawer that I used to help monitor the temperature. Water pressure is a little low too, so hard for 2 to shower at the same time, but not a big deal. The hot water temperature was plentiful, as were bath towels. Could use a pizza pan and nicer cookie sheet, as well as some normal sized drinking glasses in the kitchen, again, not a deal breaker, just a suggestion down the road. Lots of stairs so you will get your exercise in this house, a nice bonus! Have already recommended this house to friends!! Would love to come back again! Thank you for allowing us to rent your lovely home! Perfect getaway, especially during these crazy times we are having!
