The Holly House was the perfect place to stay for our group of 8 wanting to shop and also in Michigan for the 2014 Winter Classic in Ann Arbor. Location was great for our purpose. The house was massive and impressive.. Plenty of room for everyone!
Marva was a great host.. she made sure everything was running smoothly and was quick with her correspondence. We would definitely stay here again if we're ever back in Michigan.

Much appreciated Angel!!!
Marva and her "Marvelous Mansion" saved our Thanksgiving Holiday. With 20 guests and 12 of them out of town overnighters, what to do??? A rental home! It was terrific! Perfect! Everyone had their own space, no one person carried the burden. Activities and conversation places for all ages. Our family reunion of 2013 will go down in history.
Hyannis Port is spectacular, classy yet comfortable, and inviting. The kitchen was fun to work in with lots of space for others to help.
We felt Marva was accessible if we had any questions and the entire transaction with Airbnb was flawless. Will definitely do this again!
My stay has been absolutely great! It has everything you need and more. The space is very private and comfy to call home. I have only been here for half my stay and I am so glad that I chose here to stay. If you are looking for a home away from home with a very reliable host, this is the best place to stay. The location is in a safe and quiet area as well as having transportation close by. Thank you Mrs. Hanks for making my stay wonderful!
My family had an amazing long weekend at Marva's beautiful home. The property is stunning and we created some wonderful memories. There was great communication with Marva and I would definitely return.

Sharon!! Your time here was too short!! Consider us your first option next trip back here!
Marva's home was beautiful and our stay there was fantastic. The beds were very comfortable, the large rooms and furniture were inviting, and the kitchen was very well equipped. We had a large group visiting from all parts of the country and the home was perfect for us all. I would definitely stay here again.
My family and I had a wonderful time at Marva's. It was a relaxing environment that allowed for a variety of ways for the family to spend time together. The grounds and home were extremely beautiful and kept very well. We couldn't believe that we were staying in such luxury! I would highly recommend this spot in Holly, MI for anyone who needs to get away and has a larger family. Marva's attention to detail and hospitality made us truly feel comfortable and at home.
This house is amazing! My brother is 6'6" and was completely comfortable! King size beds, oversized furniture. What a wonderful place to relax and spend a few days. The kitchen was great too! Beautiful house!
Beautiful home and had a wonderful time visiting with the hostess, Maxine. We enjoyed the little town of Holly and hopefully our travels will bring us back that way again soon!

Thanks Coach!!! So glad we were able to accomadate you & your family!!! If your travels ever bring you close to NYC please look me up!!!
When I just arrived I had a nice welcome, the fridge had food in it, Jazz music was grooving in the background and I had all I needed and way more than any hotel!
Very well organized spaces with a nice neighborhood attached :) I think the bed was the best I ever slept in... I didn't want to get up!
I recommend taking an afternoon summer walk to Verona Park in Montclair right next by, if you want to go back in time to colonial-revolutionary America, and to check out the sunset overlooking Manhattan from the Essex 9/11 memorial.
I was traveling on bizness and had everything I needed to eat healthy and what I like with the wholefoods near by, fly out of Newark quickly and enjoy the living room space, abundance of closet space and spacious and pleasant Bathroom.
Very good value.
I hope to stay there again some day :))
Marva is a beautiful person. Although it was a short stay, it was long enough to experience her warm-heartedness and kindness. Would love to have her as a guest anytime.
Really lovely family, their stay was short but very pleasant.

I've known Marva and her husband for quite some time now. Every time I visit them they make me feel at ease with a comfortable bed in their cozy home. They're a short walking distance to the train station so you can ride into NYC within minutes. They live in a safe and quiet neighborhood. Visitors will have no problems staying with them as they are both helpful and hospitable.
My husband and I have had the pleasure of lodging at Marva's for many years. She provides a clean and bright environment for our stay. Our room is always stocked with flowers, fruit, & our favorite snacks. She has traveled extensively and knows what a traveler likes and provides it for her guess.
Hi! I have known Marva for 7 years now. We have met in bsf, bible study fellowship. I really can't tell what is better, either to be invited to her house or to have her at my house. Both is simply fantastic. She is one of the most warmhearted, caring, reliable, trustworthy, truthful and detail-oriented ladies I have met. And she knows how to have fun in life. Good, joyful fun. Marva, I'd stay with you any time AND you know, my house is always open for you.
I have known Marva for over 20 years, all the way back in our college days in Iowa! I have also been a guest of Marva in different homes on several occasions. She will make you feel instantly comfortable with her warm spirit, hospitable approach, and beautiful decor!!! Marva will be able to read whether or not you want peace and quiet, or a lively conversation! If you like a comfortable, clean, classy, and a positively, memorable stay, you've found your AirBnB site near NYC!
I have known Marva for 7 years, she is one of thee best hostesses that I know.....very caring and makes you feel so comfortable. She is friendly to everyone and I mean just that. Not really knowing her well when we first met but she did not let that stop her from trying to establish a true unconditional friendship.....Her home is lovely and convenient to train and NYC and very safe and cozy:)...highly recommend her guest rooms.
