AMANDA'S HOUSE - WALK TO SOUTH BEACH AND TOWN. ALL NEW INSIDE

South Haven House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

This is a large, classic, in-town house which was completely remodeled inside in 2004, and completely redecorated in 2011-2012 with all new paint, furniture, and carpet. It is a comfortable house for a large family or 2 families vacationing together. The location is ideal - easy walk to beach, town, and Kid's Corner park.

The sunny main living area has a modern, open floor plan, with kitchen, dining room, and living room leading to each other. There is a sun room on the front of the house with a pull-out couch, a desk (bring your own laptop, free wireless Internet is provided) and curtains which may be closed for privacy.

The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to cook at home. The dining room has a table with extension which can seat 10 comfortably in chairs, or you can bring over the bench from the hallway and add a few more people. The living room has a 42 inch flat screen TV with cable and a BluRay/DVD player, a large super-comfortable sectional couch, another couch, and a recliner. There is also an ipod player and a radio with CD player.

The king size master bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower (no tub) is on the main floor. The other 3 bedrooms are upstairs, one with a queen-size bed, one with 2 twins, and one with double bunks. There is another flat screen TV with BluRay/DVD player in the bunk bed room for the kids to watch their own movies. There are no game systems, but feel free to bring your own. All bedrooms have closets and suitcase stands. The upstairs bath has a shower with tub, and plenty of open-shelf storage for many guests to keep their things handy.

As an added bonus there is a small mudroom at the main entrance at the back of the house, and a hallway at the side entrance with a bench, hooks, and a table for purses, keys, etc.

The house also comes with a good sized fully fenced-in private side yard with a fire pit, gas grill, large patio with dining table, basketball area with level concrete playing surface, and grass for the kids to play. There is also a front porch facing west from which Lake Michigan is visible (it's not quite a 'lake view' but you can see it if you look)

All linens are provided except beach towels, please bring your own. There is a new large capacity washer and dryer. 6 beach chairs are provided. There are a few bikes but please ask to confirm use of bikes. Week-long rentals are Friday - Friday

We are a fun-loving family of 7 living in Chicago

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

We dreamed of buying a vacation house for a long time be we couldn't decide on a location. After spending a week in South Haven in the summer of 2011 we knew we had finally found it. It is an ideal location for us - close enough to the city of Chicago to be a reasonable weekend get-away, yet far enough to feel like you are away from it all. We love the natural beauty of the lake shore, and the peaceful rural landscapes inland. It feels like a small town far away from the city, but at the same time there are wonderful restaurants and shops.

Our kids have had fun swimming late into the fall, spending hours at Kid's Corner park, then sledding or skating on the covered skating rink. They have especially enjoyed the fact that everything is within walking distance for them.

LOVED OUR STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Amanda's house was a perfect home away from home for our trip to Lake Michigan. The owners have thought of EVERYTHING to make your stay relaxing and comfortable as home. The 4 bedroom house is clean, full of modern amenities, nicely decorated, and definitely spacious enough for 10-12 people for multiple families with small children and/or teenagers. Master bedroom on first floor and 3 large bedrooms upstairs, 3 bathrooms, and large modern kitchen with all amenities, plenty of dish and cookware. The dining area is separate and quite large also. The house is very clean and was not missing anything we needed...from kitchen utensils to Kuerig to dishwasher and disposal to (plenty of) big fluffy towels, plenty of linens, new washer and dryer, hair dyers, wi-fi, flat screen TVs, office area, covered porch, backyard, garage, even a basement with extra furniture if you have a huge group). The owners have even supplied books, games, bikes, wagons, first aid supplies and a smores kit. Our children LOVED their room with 2 sets of bunkbeds and their own TV for DVD watching. The backyard is a great private (fenced in) quiet get away with a beautiful firepit, table with umbrella, and gas grill. The neighborhood is close enough to walk to the beach (3 blocks) and close enough to the great Kids Korner playground. The neighborhood was very quiet and quaint....great for morning or evening strolls to the beach and town. We LOVED South Haven for quaintness of the town, restaurants, shops, the beach (sand is amazing). South Haven is the perfect location for daily excursions too....to St Joseph (Carousel and beach playground), Air Zoo in Kalamazoo, and Saugatuck (Dune Rides were amazing). Lots to do around even on rainy days. All trips were less than an 40 minutes away. Highly recommend this for a fun, easy beach vacation with all the comforts of home. There are major grocery stores (Meijer and WalMart) within 5 minutes drive. There are plenty of unique restaurants and little shops for browsing and ice cream and toy shopping outings (within walking distance). The owners were available and very responsive to questions that we had before and after our stay. You will not be disappointed in Amanda's House if you are looking for all the comforts of home and fun in South Haven.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! The basketball hoop was the first thing we put up, before my teenage son arrived for the first time! It's been a hit.

FAMILY FRIENDLY AMANDA'S HOUSE

Family Friendly Amanda's House
  • 5 of 5
Our family rents a house in South Haven each summer. Amanda's House is a family home fully equipped with nice furnishings, plenty of kitchen necessities for family meals, clean, had a great backyard with fire pit and good location...we walked to the beach and town. It was really nice having a dining table large enough for all of us to share a meal together. We recommend getting ice cream at Captain Nemo's before walking to the beach to watch the sunset. Our family enjoyed our stay at Amanda's House and we thank the owners for their hospitality! Looking forward to next summer :)

THE HOUSE WITH EVERYTHING!

  • 5 of 5
Our family (of mostly adults, plus a granddaughter) just spent a weekend at Amanda's House, scouting it out for a longer visit in warmer weather. We were amazed at what a wonderful house it is. Houses that sleep more than 8 in South Haven are rare, but this one can handle 12 or even more. The living room easily seats 10 or 12 without bringing in an extra chair. Two luggage racks for every bedroom, plenty of towels, hooks everywhere to hang up your stuff, a comprehensive house manual, plenty of glassware, plenty of electrical outlets, even a giant flat screen TV in the living room and (surprise!) in the bunk bedroom. And everything is new, nice and comfortable. And the location is great, just 3 blocks to the beach (no, we didn't go swimming in April!) and 3 blocks to a very charming town. South Haven, and Amanda's House, are now firmly on our vacation short list! We'll certainly be back to this great rental.

WONDERFUL WEEK WITH FAMILY AT AMANDA'S HOUSE

Wonderful week with family at Amanda's House
  • 5 of 5
We (a grandma, daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandchildren) enjoyed a delightful week at Amanda's house during June 2012! The house is beautifully furnished and equipped for fun and convenience. The location is ideal, between the main street and the beach. The owner did everything possible to make our arrival easy, so we could settle in quickly and begin our vacation. We especially enjoyed using the outdoor dining area, fire pit, and basketball "court." The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in, and we enjoyed the home's wi-fi and TVs. We plan to look no further than Amanda's House for our next visit to Lake Michigan. Thank you so much for making our stay in South Haven so special.
