THE VAN BUREN ST. GETAWAY - WALK TO BEACH & DOWNTOWN - $2,400

South Haven House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

Spacious rooms invite you to settle in, relax and BE on vacation! Master Bedroom (2nd story) has a fullsize deck for hanging out 'above it all'. The deck below, which is off the kitchen/dining area, offers outside relaxation, eating, or watching the kids play in the large back yard. Lake Michigan is a short 2.5 blocks away - with one of the most beautiful sunset views available at the head of the Van Buren St. stairs - which lead down to the beach for lots of daytime fun.

This home is big enough to handle a large family, extended family, combined families or just a group of friends. Watch movies together from our DVD library, or head for Kids Corner Park, downtown shops, restaurants & marinas - all within walking distance. Park your car in the driveway and enjoy the freedom from gas prices!

If you are looking for a larger sized home, beautifully redone, then this is the vacation getaway for you.

Dan and Sarma Ilgenfritz are happy grandparents of 9. Dan is a general contractor and loved rehabbing the Van Buren St. Getaway house. It took 6 years, working in the off season for the complete rehab. Sarma enjoys semi-retirement by managing the vacation rental and taking care of infants at the daycare center.

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

It is our hometown (we live 3 miles from the location) and South Haven is a great vacation spot, sitting right on Lake Michigan, with great shops, restaurants, outdoor activities, the best Farmer's Market, and really friendly people!

The large back yard has lots of room for our kids & grandkids; we love to lounge on the upstairs deck off the master bedroom - you can really feel the 'getaway' up there; eating together is great fun with enough room for everyone - at the huge family style dining table, spilling over to the attached lower deck when more space is needed. We can walk to the beach, downtown and Kids Corner.

We rented the house for a group of girlfriends to have a weekend get together. The accommodations were perfect! The house was clean, the beds were comfortable, and everything was fully stocked. We felt very welcome and really enjoyed our weekend!

Family Wedding

This was my families first experience lodging in a home together...and it could not have been a better find nor experience! We had 12 staying for my son's wedding on the beach. Sarma met me for a tour 2 weeks prior to the event...and was so accommodating. The home was PERFECT for us! So very clean...open space for large group mingling...plenty of beds for all. We were so comfortable (inside)...as the weather turned on us for a beach wedding. I would HIGHLY recommend this residence...and look forward to visiting again in better weather! (Already making plans!!!!)

This was the 5th one week rental we have had in South Haven. The house was accurately represented in the listing. We found what we expected to find. It was clean, well kept, nicely decorated and family friendly. The owners were very accessible and helpful. It was close to the beach and we walked downtown every evening. Overall we were very pleased. We had 6 adults and 5 children, the oldest being 6 and the youngest 14 months. Of our 5 rentals his was defiantly the best!

Our family of 16 (plus a newborn makes 17) stayed at the Van Buren Street Getaway. We enjoyed the great access to the beach with such a short walk. We also made great use of the laundry facilities, making us have little dirty laundry to do when we all got back to our homes. We enjoyed the coziness of the beach house and felt it was priced fairly for the week. The home owners were very helpful and nice to work with. All of us have said we will return to this South Haven rental home again in the future.

Our family of 20 including 9 adults and 11 children ages 6 months - 12 years had a wonderful stay at the Van Buren St. getaway. The master bedroom was big enough to sleep a family of 5 children and 2 adults using a crib, pack n play, and an air matress. The beds are all big! This is very hard to find in rentals in South Haven for this many people. The living room was big enough for all of us to sit around and hang out. The shade trees in the front and back yard were a huge help with the heat. The walk to the beach, kids corner, church, and downtown were just right. The owners were great to work with and gave us great ideas for restaurants. We ate at Maria's, Phoenix St, Captain Nemo's, Su Casa, and Clementine's. They were all good! We walked downtown atleast once a day if not twice. The laundry room was so nice to have and it was stocked! I never thought I would do laundry on vacation, but I was wrong. We washed towels and bathing suits daily and I even washed all the dirty laundry so I didn't have to do anything with we returned home. There's nothing I could say bad about this home. It was perfect!
