PLAY IN THE MICHIGAN SUN! PARK AVENUE COTTAGE. 2 MINUTE STROLL TO THE BEACH.

South Haven House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths + Screened Porch, sleeps 12

Add Park Avenue Cottage to your Travel Bucket List!

Park Avenue Cottage has a magnificent setting. Nestled among mature trees and lush plantings, the outside areas provide lots of private settings for enjoying the beautiful Michigan weather. Less than a 3 minute walk from Oak Street Beach, it is the ideal spot for family vacations. The large screened in porch is a wonderful place to relax, read a good book or enjoy alfresco dining. In the backyard the hammock encourages relaxation and lazy days.

The artful craftsmanship of this home is evident throughout. Raised ceilings, exposed beams and oversized rooms are part of the original cottage. The lower level, studio apartment can be the private living quarters for part of your group or turn it over to the children for their own Kids Haven. The cottage offers over 1600 sq ft of living space for you and your family. The cottage is bright, spacious, tastefully decorated and impeccably clean.

Park Avenue Cottage is decorated to create a feeling of comfort and relaxation. Classic nautical tones and light colored upholstery provide just enough variety as well as durable comfort.

The screened in porch is a room all to itself. Fun and functional with the classic look of wicker it provides the ideal spot for spending time with family. Summer memories never fade. Your family will treasure their memories of time spent sharing laughs, dinners and stories on the porch.

The house easily sleeps 12 in 3 generous sized bedrooms and the Kids Haven on the Lower Level making it the perfect house for a family vacation. The full size Kitchen, Living Room and large Dining Area provides room for everyone to stretch out. Three baths, a powder room and modern laundry are also included for your convenience. The Kids Haven easily sleeps 5 and with a separate kitchenette it's perfect for movie nights and board games.

The canopy of trees that shade the entire house along with the proximity to Lake breezes keep the interior pleasantly cool in the summer. The cottage is air-conditioned, however, for those warm Summer afternoons.

Park Avenue Cottage is located just a short stroll from marinas, the park and downtown South Haven. The Maritime Museum and our old fashioned movie theatre are within walking distance too.

Leave your car at the cottage. You won’t need it!

South Haven is a 200 year old port town whose crown jewel is the cardinal red light house. The lighthouse and harbor welcome guests to the shores of our sugar sand beaches. Great shopping, stylish restaurants and of course the beach, means you will never be at a loss for things to do. South Haven is way more than just a beach, however. Local wineries, expeditions up the river and our many festivals highlight the best that South Haven has to offer.

Wow!

The house was perfect for my group. The house is spacious. Enough room for everyone. Spotless. Close to the beach. The house had everything, more than we could imagine. The sun porch and hammock were a huge hit. We brought our bath and beach towels, everything else was there. We've already planned to rent this home again. The owner was so very helpful. I have stayed in South Haven for a week every summer for the last 36 years. I couldn't ask for a more perfect location.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased Park Avenue Cottage provided you and your family such a wonderful vacation experience. Our goal is to offer the best accommodation in South Haven! The large, lower level studio and spacious upper level offer lots of room for families to be together, yet have some private space too. We are thrilled you noticed that the cottage was spotless. Our housekeeping staff is very diligent and will be delighted to hear you were pleased. It's almost impossible not to have fun in South Haven. We are happy Park Avenue Cottage made your experience the best ever. Many thanks.

Quaint and clean room with a few mechanical issues

This basement studio is located very close to the beach and town, very walkable to both. The stone staircase is very pretty, but can be a little challenging if you have a stroller or someone who doesn't handle uneven terrain. It's entrance along with the back patio was somewhat private and very quiet. Inside, the floor is painted concrete with a nice array of rugs to soften up the room. The room itself is a very spacious studio with high ceilings. The sleeping "area" includes 3 twins and a full bed (one full and one twin is in a kind of tight bunk bed set up). The mattresses are a little firm, but not uncomfortable. The decor is very beach-oriented and has a very functional layout. There are two huge banks of windows on either end of the room, along with the screen door on the entrance, which allows for a good breeze to flow through. In the living room, there is a nice selection of older children's VHS tapes, a well-stocked kitchenette, and comfortable seating. The bathroom was clean and had a thoughtful number of towel racks and surfaces to set toiletry bags. The major drawbacks were: 1) the TV did not have a cable box and therefore no TV channels as advertised, which it did not appear could have ever worked properly without the cable box, 2) the AC was not working, which was not a huge deal because it was a cooler few days, but nothing was mentioned to that regard in the ad, and 3) when people are occupying the upstairs part of the unit, you can hear footsteps and sometimes muted voices. Overall the room was more than adequate, with a few issues, and its location was very nice. The owner was helpful overall, though a little uninformed on the TV issue.

Owner's Response: This year we are offering the entire Park Avenue Cottage as a single rental instead of just the lower level. There is an entrance to the lower level through the house or the guest may choose to use the outside stairs. We always appreciate the thoughtful suggestions of our guests. We have replaced the air-conditioner so the cottage will be nice and cool on the warm afternoons we sometime get in South Haven. It is suggested that families consider using the lower level as the Kids Haven. They can watch videos and play board games at the game table. The Kids Haven also has a small kitchenette so they can make popcorn and have their own space in the cottage. This space is also ideal for the family that wants two separate living areas. Together but retaining some privacy at the same time.

We think the changes we made will greatly improve the cottage experience for our guests. We are always so grateful to get constructive feedback.
