This wonderful home is my personal house, where even I enjoy staying when it is not rented. It is part of a large gated estate that is also home to our other vacation rental; the Slice of Life Cottage (#255129). Both are all-year-around vacation rental homes -- perfect for both summer getaways and off-season holidays. We are constantly making upgrades and improvements to both houses as well as every inch of this magnificent property. One could easily believe that they have not only found the best vacation rental that money can buy but also their own personal resort that is worth every penny!
Slice of Life Master House is ready and waiting for you and your family to make the memories of a lifetime. You will find so much to do that you won't ever want to leave! Come sit on the deck and enjoy the fresh breezes with an unobstructed & calming view of the lake. Hang out on our own personal sandy-beach, soak up the sun, take a nap in the hammock, or lay out on the large floating island. Watch the boats fly by and take in all the great Michigan wildlife that surrounds you. Watch your kids have a blast with all the beach toys or see them jump around on the large paradise pad while they are swimming. Take out the pontoon boat, or the waverunners, or even pull a tube or skier behind! Fish from the dock where the fish come to you, or with the fishing boat and let the trolling motor bring you to the fish. Go on adventures with the kayaks, stand up paddle boards, or even the swan paddle boats! In the evenings, build a fire in the firepit or have a cookout on the patio. Rain? No problem! We have board games, game rooms, a sauna, a tanning bed, a workout area, televisions in every room, and fast internet! Need a nap? Wrap yourself up in 100& egyptian cotton bedding and wake up still in paradise. Hungry? Why leave! We have two full kitchens, two gas grills, and grocery stores nearby. If you really must get out of the house, you are within 10 minutes of quaint downtown Grand Haven (Coast Guard City USA!) which offers a wide variety of shopping needs & wants, parks, sights, and eateries. Check out the world largest musical fountain and all the historic buildings or take a stroll down the pier and enjoy the breathtaking view of Lake Michigan.
We do our best to make sure that you have everything you could possibly need for your vacation. All you need to bring is a few toiletries and then take a trip or two to the grocery store. We have bikes, bike helmets, and strollers. We have yard games, propane for the grills, wood for the firepit, and coolers for the beach. There is a large yard, patio, and deck with enough space for the entire crew outside. The sleeping arrangements will also be comfortable and spacious on the inside. We trust that your stay will be an absolute pleasure and we implore you to try and find anything we have missed!

This house has everything you need to adults and kids. We have stayed a lot of places and this one is at the top of list. We literally never left the house except to grocery shop because it kept 5 kids (ages 2-8) two sets of parents and two sets of grandparents fully entertained! The ability to walk to the water with out a lot of stairs was great for kids and grandmas!
We have been going for several years to the Slice of Life. There are a lot of "built in" entertainment, such as in the house for rainy days, on the water, and lawn type games as options, so if you do not want to go out you don't have to. There is also a lot to see if you choose to go out. My favorite is the family time, investing in memories and not needing to leave, it is very ample for providing what you may need or want to have a great family time and stay.
Thanks again Slice of Life team for a terrific vacation week. This is our 7th year at Slice of Life with our family of 10 (8 adults – 2 children under 10). We stayed at the main house. Everything is outstanding as usual – exceptionally clean, plenty of room, much to do in the house and in the yard / beach area. We also very much appreciate your responsiveness to our questions and asks. Our favorite things to do are: tubing with the pontoon boat, ghost stories around the campfire and (of course) our annual couples Beach Olympics (horseshoes, bean bag toss, basketball, shuffleboard plus 4 others). Winners get a trophy - losers do the dishes. Lots of laughs. For the first time, our 7 and 9 year old grandsons successfully conquered the paddleboard which was very fun to watch. See you next year!
Our five couples were supposed to go to Savannah but had to cancel - we made lemonade! This house is wonderful. It has great location, incredible amenities, and lots of space. We had plenty of room in a fully equipped kitchen for the chefs among us to cook; our "athletes' to work out, our wives to relax and laugh while the guys watched baseball, football and played golf. It is simply an outstanding place to get away.
More than enough room for our family of 8 adults and 7 kids. Plenty of activities with Jacuzzi, game room, double kitchen for snacks and meals, sauna and multiple TV's. Home was fresh, clean and up-to-date with all the conveniences. We whole heartedly recommend this property and we are planning our next return date!
We had 21 people from 5 states and there was so much to do and so much space that we were thoroughly entertained and did not trip over each other. They have thought of everything here!
Wow. Is what you will say when you walk into the Slice of Life Master house. We were there for a long weekend and enjoyed every minute. We never heard, "I'm bored or "there's nothing to do". Everything is how it is described and more. So much room. Murray was very nice and only a phone call away. We even had a photographer come and do family pictures using the beautiful scenery and landscaping . A long weekend was not enough. We would recommend this to anyone, those with children, teenagers and seniors. Our family ranged in ages 2- 65 with 2 being college age. Thank you Murray for having your house available to use.
Our family (16 people--ranging in age from 1-70) had a simply wonderful time at the Slice of Life Master House! It was a child's paradise--the private beach, the paddle boats, paddle boards, fishing poles and the kayaks--it was non stop fun. There are life jackets for everyone and for every size, ensuring the safety of all. When kids are happy, parents are happy!! It was relaxing for the parents because when they were not in the water or on the equipment themselves, they could sit back and relax while still easily keeping an eye on the young ones. There were plenty of sand toys and the fire pit was ideal for making s'mores. The inside entertainment was perfect for evenings. The smaller lake was lovely and inviting. It was a peaceful setting that made for a fantastic family get away and we all left with happy memories!
We had 9 adults & 7 kids in our group and it worked out perfectly. The kids always had something to do which meant the adults had time to do the things they liked to do....like read & relax for a bit! Thank you so much such a wonderful getaway.
Second time back and not disappointed in the amenities. Plenty of things to do for the grandkids and we had great fun playing games, watching movies and many wonderful meals. Would recommend to large families.
