We really loved the Octagon!! The accommodations were quite comfortable. The house was awesome with it's peaceful surroundings. The deck was great for coffee in the mornings and dinner in the evening. We look forward to our return. Would highly recommend this home!

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to South Haven. My wife and I spent a terrific week at The Octagon with our 8 and 5 year old children.

The Octagon is in a terrific location. It's just a few minutes to the beach, also just a few minutes to the downtown restaurants and shopping, yet still in a private location.

The condo looks just like the pictures. The main living/dining area is spacious and beautiful. The kitchen was well-stocked and ready for cooking. Our kids loved spending time in the loft. We spent a lot of time out on the large deck, enjoying the beautiful grounds. The entryway bathroom was great for young kids coming back from the pool and the beach.

The pool and tennis court were great additions to the property. The pool was clean and we had it to ourselves most of the time; we swam in it almost every day. The house was equipped with pool floats and tennis rackets, Scott and Jill have really thought of it all!

We loved our stay and would definitely stay at The Octagon again!

Beyond My Expectations!!

  • 5 of 5
Spent a fabulous week at the Octagon w/ my husband and our 5 & 7 year old daughters. The house was clean, and truly only needed to pack beach towels. The house location was great, close to many wonderful beaches and shopping! We spent a lot of time at the pool. A lot of the time we had it to ourselves.
We are already talking about a return vacation to the Octagon. Scott and Jill were very helpful in answering all of our questions! Thank you for an amazing vacation!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5
My family had a wonderful three day vacation at the Octagon! The house is just as it looks in the pictures. The property is clean and the owners are very friendly. The location is perfect as it within two minute driving distance of all the attractions, but still very quiet and serene. We spent lots of time on the deck, the beach, and in the shopping area of South Haven. We would definitely recommend the Octagon!

Fabulous Girls Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at the Octagon late last summer with 4 girlfriends for a long weekend and it was simply wonderful. Enjoyed beautiful Lake Michigan and shopping and eating in charming South Haven. The condo was perfect and had everything we needed. We spent much time on the deck, in the pool, and on the tandem bike (who doesn't love to tandem!). The condo is large, comfortable, clean and perfect for relaxing with friends. The owners were very friendly and helpful and even offered some great suggestions for things to do around South Haven.We all would highly recommend this property and are looking forward to another stay this year!
