What makes this house unique

credit cards now accepted

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really loved this house! There were seven of us including two small children and the house was more than sizable enough for all of us. Big upstairs living area, big downstairs living area and a big deck. With the availability of a downstairs living room, those of us who wanted to stay up and gab could have our fun without waking up anyone in the upstairs bedrooms. We also played board games on the deck very late one night without disturbing anyone.



I was impressed by the hip retro furniture in the upstairs living room and kitchen -- a nice departure from your typical humdrum boats and lighthouse themed summer home decor. This property has a very fresh feel to it.



Terrific location -- walking distance to downtown South Haven and the beach. Very quiet street with friendly neighbors. I'll stay here whenever I return to South Haven. Highly recommended!

A fun place to stay

  • of 5

This was a last minute booking and Mark was great, he got back in touch quickly and everything was settled.

The house is in a great location, clean, comfortable and spacious. Switches where labeled (great idea) and the house was well stocked with towels, blankets, paper products, etc. If you like a firm mattress you might find the master bed a bit soft.

There were six of us, two adults, three teenagers and a dog. The layout worked really well for us, the kids had the basement and the West end bedrooms and we had the Living room and East end....the bunk room did become the place for the kids slumber party on the last night!

With a large kitchen meals were easy, the table seats six, so good for us. The basement had lots of room so we could play games, watch football and of course hold Foosball competitions.

With good WiFi you can bring your Netflix/Hulu/Prime with you and plug into the nice flatscreen TVs. The BT tower speaker in the basment was a big hit with the kids, enabling no shortage of music mixes when where playing games..... Glad there are no close neighbors!

Beach access is about a block away and you can walk into South Haven in 15 mins. The bridge was under construction while we were there so we actually had to go round, maybe a five minute drive.

If you want to stay in the area definitely put his house on your list.

Right at Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a blast at this house. There were two families and the house accommodated us well. We didn't even use one of the bedrooms. All four kids fit into the bunkroom. The decor is cool and the street is very quiet, yet it is right down the block from the beach. We also walked into town several times.

My favorite part was the basement. We talked about renting this house in the winter because the basement gives such comfy vibe with the fireplace.

We love South Haven and loved the Summerwood!
