With all due respect to the guest, we feel the last sentence in the review is not very accurate and is a pretty significant misrepresentation/painted picture of the streets we are located on. The home is near the corner of 11th and Van Raalte; 11th St is a single lane residential street in each direction that has a stop sign on both sides of Van Raalte Ave and a speed limit of 25mph: 11th St is not what we or most people consider to be a "main thoroughfare" street in Holland. Van Raalte Ave is also a single lane residential street in each direction with a speed limit of 25mph that I would say has an average/medium amount of cars, but it is not a double lane or one-way heavily trafficked route (for example such as 16th St, or 9th St, or 7th St, or Pine St, or River Ave) through the downtown area are, and for those reasons is again not what we or most people would consider a "main thouroughfare" in the town of Holland. Out of 59 reviews, averaging 4.8 stars, 57 of 59 guests have had no issue or problem with any 'road noise', and, also keeping in mind that most of those 59 reviews are coming during summertime when our guests are sitting outside on the deck/porch where if it was pretty bad and pretty loud, it would be written about. In sum, we feel that for an in-town Holland location, the road noise or traffic at the home is certainly not excessive or unusual in any way, and the amalgamated Guest Reviews for the home reflect this.
We felt it was necessary to address the accuracy of the guest's last sentence, and clarify these details for future guests.
