COZY SECLUDED NORTH SHORE COTTAGE JUST STEPS FROM THE BEACH

South Haven Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Detached Unit, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This beautiful home is just STEPS from the beach with easy access to the most beautiful beach in South Haven!

The street is a very quite and private cul de sac, super safe for kids.

Located on the prestigious North Shore 'Miracle Mile' our beach has a sandy bottom with no rocks, unlike beaches north and south of us. We built our own safe and accessible stairs for our guests.

Truly the best for swimming with pristine white sand!

Enjoy the outdoors with the expansive front decking and close proximity to Lake Michigan beaches with this unique 3 bedroom, renovated Hollywood style bungalow located in a quiet neighborhood just 3 houses from the prestigious North Shore Drive in South Haven.

Beautifully landscaped for privacy, you'll love the lush greenery.

Fall colors are exquisite on the most beautiful street in South Haven!

Entertain or unwind easily in the open concept main living area. The updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances and dark granite counters opens out into the living room and dining area for 6, all accented tastefully with light hardwood floors and ecclectic artistic influences characteristic of a Hollywood lifestyle.

Cozy up in the evenings around the wood burning Fireplace in the living room while you listen to some mellow music or take a stroll along the beach, just a short walk from the home (wash your feet off with the hot and cold outdoor shower!)

Everyone will appreciate the consistency of bedding; all beds are queen size and split between the main house and the seperate guest house. The main house contains the large master-suite with a Queen size bed, Gas Fireplace and attached bathroom with a unique soaker tub ( the water pours from the ceiling!) and walk in shower. Bamboo floors and curved a glass brick window create a Zen-Deco spa like atmosphere and 2 sided fireplace can be viewed from bed or bath!

An attached private sitting area is ideal for reading a book or doing some online research (Wireless Internet)

The remaining bedding is: a guest bedroom with a Queen bed, a Queen sofa sleeper in the living room and a Queen bed in the Guest House in the back.

Only 4 houses from the nearest Lake Michigan beach, Newcomb Beach, and just a short drive into downtown South Haven, you'll find the location close and convenient to shopping, dining and all the area activities.

Great Memorial Day with Family

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for Memorial Day weekend, 2012.

Everything was ready for us when we arrived. Dealing with the property owner by email worked great. He doesn't accept credit cards, which was a slight disadvantage, but all worked out fine.

The pictures of the house, inside and out are perfectly accurate. We had about 7 people and were all very comfortable. Beds were great, bedrooms were great. Plenty of pillows and blankets. Everything clean, clean, clean.

The fireplaces were awesome. Actually had remotes to turn on and off while sitting in bed (hehe).:) The back room and bathroom were really pretty, and modern. Comfortable furniture. Kitchen had everything we needed. Nice appliances, good for any cooking.

Met a nice neighbor who walked his dog every day by our property, and apparently was friends with the property owner. We didn't feel like he was spying on us, just a real nice guy, with an adorable dog.

We were able to bring our dog, and that was a plus.

We had a FABULOUS time at the beach. It is absolutely gorgeous. Clean, beautiful beach.

We had a teensy problem trying to find the beach access, but once we did, that was fine too.

The actual walk to the beach was about 2 blocks, and when you get to the beach, there are about 70 stairs to climb down (and up....arrgh), but we had so much fun, sometimes we did it several times a day. If you can't climb all of those steps, getting to the beach from here might be a problem. We had a wonderful "Sunset Celebration" on the beach on our final night. It was absolutely breathtaking.

If you're looking for a clean, nice, house, with a nice front yard to play in, a great front porch for chatting, and access to Lake Michigan (short walk), you really won't go wrong with this house. We had a wonderful time.

My only negative comments: doesn't accept credit card payments; lots of steps at the beach;

Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! Just to clarify a few things. Our property is in fact 3 houses from beach access, not 2 blocks as mentioned in review.
It is a one minute stroll from our house to beach steps. We can see the Lake from front of property...so very close indeed.
We have always had a very easy time negotiatng the steps as they are secure and wide with a railing and 2 landings on the stair case. Our neighborhood association built them especially for our street.
FYI all beach access along the "Sunset Mile" in beautiful South Haven do have steps due to the hill going down to the beach...well worth it though!
So glad you enjoyed your stay in South Haven!

Summer get away

  • 2 of 5
We just stayed at the house for a week. It was very clean, except for the family room rug, which is filthy. It doesn't look like its ever been cleaned. The deck in the front of the house was great. The house was in a good location and not far from the beach.

We did have a few negative comments too though.
The beach closest to the house is, not joking, about 20 feet by 15 feet. It is so small we couldn't use it the entire week. If there's another family on it, you'll need to go elsewhere. We had to drive about a half mile down the road to Plackard Beach, which is about 10 times the size. We had to pay for parking everyday too. It takes away from the whole reason we paid more money to rent a house near the beach.
Also, the guest 'cottage' in the back is really a tool shed that he put dry wall on the walls to make it into a tiny room. My college age son tried to sleep in the room but in the evenings at dark, it was infested with tons of bugs - all varieties. He had to sleep in the pull out couch.
I called the owner to let him know about the bugs and he said it wasn't a problem.
When I complained about the tiny beach he said that all the beaches along North Shore are the same size. Not true. He should disclose the small size so you know that you may need to go elsewhere. There's private property along each side so you can't spread out at all. After we arrived we found out that many others have complained about the beach as well. He made up an excuse for everything I talked to him about.
The landscape was totally overgrown and every landscape light around the house is broken.
There are plenty of other houses in the area that are much better to rent for the amount of money he charged.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in the home. Everything was just perfect. The house is charming and very cozy. The beach is pristine and a very short walk (one minute) from the cottage with nice stairs leading to it. We especially enjoyed the spacious deck, outside shower and private yard. The BBQ was new and a nice touch. The street is very quite and safe. All in all it was a perfect week in lovely South Haven.

Disappointed Traveler

  • 2 of 5
My family and I arrived to this property on July 19th for a 1 week stay. My first impression of the home was disappointing.

Pros:
Very close to the beach which is beautiful. Comfortably slept my entire family. Nice front porch. South Haven is a very nice town. We were able to bring a pet, a plus!

Cons:
When we arrived the trash cans were over filled with garbage causing raccoons to make a mess each night until they were finally emptied the following week.
The rug in the family room was filthy with stains. We had to roll it up and move it in the corner as no one wanted to walk on their bare feet on it. (It was very heavy to move)
One of the bedroom doors came of the hinges... very hazardous! The property management company came out the next day to temporarily fix it, not kid friendly. They are bi-fold doors.
Over grown shrubs along sidewalk.. Landscaping was not maintained, looked very messy in the backyard.
The home had an unpleasent odor. More so, the "guest house" in the back.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. The only problem we have had with garbage is if the renters do not bag properly. It is pick up weekly or as needed by our property manager. Our rugs are cleaned professionally on a regular basis and the home at present has no odors, it may have been from the renters animals. All doors and windows are in good working order.
It should be noted that this is the first complaint we have ever had (see 5 star review above). We strive to keep our cottage in pristine condition and we also love our beach and neighborhood.
