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 Master House (#251371). 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!

Such a great place to sit and watch all the water sports or even join in on all the fun with the included sea-doo, kayaks, fishing boat, and paddle boat. Beautifully landscaped yard is great for yard games such as the included crocket. The house is immaculate. The dining room and kitchen are wonderful. The view of the water from the living room is breath taking. Nice, clean private beach with a fire pit and a great dock to fish from.
Our family stayed at the Slice of Life Guest House in July of 2009. We had an absolute fantastic time. Our 2 boys 6 & 8 had a great time swimming and riding all of the watercrafts that were available. They also had fun with the games that were provided and spending time in the hot tub. Mr. Swiftner was a great host and provided us with everything that we needed. You won't be disappointed with this place.
Our family had a wonderful memorable vacation staying at “Slice of Life” guest house. Murray was a wonderful host and we had everything we needed for a fantastic time. You won’t be disappointed with this complete family vacation package; hot tub, ski-doo, kayak, fishing boats, sandy beach, shopping and the beautiful Lake Michigan 10 minutes away.
We had a wonderful time at Slice of life guest house. It is even more beautiful in person and there is so much to do just on the property! We went into town twice. We didnt come close to doing everything we wanted to in town or at slice of life! We had a great week and my grown kids declared they could vacation here every summer! We will definitely go back! Murray is very available to help you out but does not intrude.It is an awesome place!
We celebrated our parent’s 50th wedding anniversary with a weeks stay at the “Slice of Life”. We had eight adults and 10 children with ages ranging from 4 months to 80 years old. We Rented Both Houses. We all had an amazing time and spent almost the entire week right there on the premises. Murray truly has thought of everything, and obviously enjoys stocking his rental with more toys than one can possible imagine. It was the perfect location for all of the kids and adults to play and relax at the same time. We also got very lucky with the weather. But even if you don’t, there are plenty of inside games and activities to keep everyone happy. This was one of our best family vacations ever!
We rented the guest house for two weeks including Christmas, the grandkids really enjoyed visiting and using the game room and basement. Even used the hot tub a couple times while it was snowing! Thanks Murray for adding the heater to the game room, we were able to warm it up and use it on Christmas day and have all 15 of us at the same table. Would have been fun to get a fire going in the fire pit, but it was a bit too cold to get everyone down there.
The home is appointed with everything. You don't run out of anything as Murray and Hope keep the home well stocked. There is something for everyone. We had eleven people (6 adults and 5 children) stay here and there was plenty of room. The children enjoyed the vacation house so much that they never wanted to go to town or to Lake Michigan. The property is well maintained and clean. Book here for your next vacation. You won't be disappointed!
We had a wonderful week at the Slice Of Life Cottage. My family really loved the nice sandy private beach, hot tub and abundance of activities we could do. The house was cozy and very close to the lake. There were enough bikes for our big family, so we explored trails nearby. The host was very accommodating and we were well taken care of.
Our family (including grandparents down to 7 grandkids - several teens) were thrilled to spend a week at Slice of Life this summer! The owner saved our vacation as we had to scramble after other accommodations fell through. Murray went out of his way to help us, and when we arrived, we were all so thankful that the other place fell through! Slice of Life offered much more for our group - the beautiful sand beach, multiple kayaks, paddle boats, pontoon, plus all the fun activities indoor - it was just perfect for us. The location was great - neighborhood offers a nice/easy walk each morning, the downtown area is so nice (Murray has recommendations available if needed), there are stores nearby to pick up groceries easily, and the property has lovely outdoor space for eating (grill and tables) and relaxing (fire pit at the beach plus a hot tub at the cottage). I think the beach and lake front atmosphere is what we loved most. (The teenagers would probably say the same - and highlight the games that are available in the lower level and garage of the cottage too!) Highly recommend! (And thank you again Murray for your hospitality!)
Slice Of Life is mind-blowingly well equipped for big families. From bikes to life jackets, children's toys to adult water toys, the property has absolutely everything. We were there for 10 days and never got bored. We could have stayed for a month and been entertained. The lake is quiet, the rooms are comfortable, and everything has been thought of and provided for by the owner Murray. It's truly "turn-key." We'll be back for sure :)
