South Haven House Rental Photos and Description

3bd, 2ba, 1400 sqft private home in town steps from the beach (RENTS SUN TO SUN)

SUNDAY TO SUNDAY RENTAL DURING PEAK-PLEASE NOTE! ***2014 updates-we now have HBO/SHO/MAX and HD Premier Sports and an outdoor shower!*** “NamaStay of South Haven” is new to the rental market in 2013! The entire home has been gutted to the studs, fresh and sparkling for your vacation (original home built 1928)! Everything is new, top to bottom, inside and out, including all furnishings, from the dishes, to the drywall to the 2 decks! This spacious and well laid out, Zen like retreat is waiting for your group to experience. 3 blocks to town or kids corner, 4 blocks to the beach, the location is perfectly central to all S.Haven has to offer while affording privacy in a park like setting. Enjoy a lazy stroll into town for breakfast then load up the beach toys in the cart (all provided) and walk straight west 4 blocks until your toes hit the sand on the best stretch of South Beach in SoHa. Need to escape the world for a while? Read a book, practice yoga or meditate in the Annex off the master suite or on the secluded screened in porch. Feeling energetic? Grab one of the bicycles (provided) and pedal down the Kal-Haven Trail. Finish off the afternoon with a nap in the hammock in the shade while listening to the sound of the babbling brook, contemplating the insides of your eyelids. End the day with a dinner of fresh, local items from the phenomenal and extensive farmer’s market (3 blk walk), grilled and enjoyed on your private deck in your secluded yard with a dessert of s’mores around the fire pit. We have thought of everything so you don't need to think of anything while you are here...the ideal vacation. Leave your car in the driveway and your cares on the highway-you have arrived. Welcome Home to Pure Michigan Perfection!

We live in the Chicago area and have been vacationing in Michigan all our lives. We LOVE the beach! We think South Haven is the perfect spot, not too far but not too close either! The water is warm (thank you wind from the windy city), the beaches are clean and wide, the town is big without being too big and the people are friendly. We think we have found a piece of heaven here for our precious vacation time.

Shannon purchased this house in 2013

We knew this was THE house the moment we walked in. The house was completely renovated to the studs in 2013. We added on the front porch and back deck, the gorgeous hand scraped flooring on the first floor and painted every wall in colors that spoke 'relax' to us, in a whisper, not a shout. The location is ideal, equal distance between town and beach with a wooded view for ultimate privacy and remote feeling, without being remote! We feel we have found a one of a kind gem and are super excited to share it with you!

We furnished the home with YOU in mind. You will not find a lot of knick knacks or clutter. There is space for your things so you can immediately make it your own. There is open space which gives your mind rest and the chance to slow down and go on vacation with your body! Our photos are current and descriptions are accurate-you need to know what you are getting for your vacation dollars so there is no bait and switch here leading to frustration and disappointment. We want repeat guests that care as much about this home as we do. Our home is truly your home and we hope you immediately feel that when you walk in the door the first time.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR A WONDERFUL VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Nanastay for a week with our daughter, son-in-law, and our little grandsons. We had a great week. This house is so well-planned. The owners have thought of every little detail to make the house comfortable for guests. It's new and clean and nicely furnished. Even when it rained on our first day, I found the screened in porch a perfect reading spot. The grill and deck worked so well for our cookouts. One night we also used the outdoor fireplace for roasting marshmallows. The beach cart, wagon, and cooler on wheels were lifesavers for our beach days. Our family would highly recommend Namastay!

GREAT TIME WITH THE KIDS!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived at NamaStay with our two young children and felt like we were immediately 'home'. This house has it all. Board games, bicycles, every kitchen appliance you may need (quesadilla maker!) and much much more. It is immaculate and extremely clean. It has an excellent location and is very close to the beach, the downtown, and Kids Corner (park). We biked everywhere. To top it off they have a great deck area in the back with a new grill and a hammock. We definitely plan on returning and would highly recommend choosing this house for your next vacation. Well done NamaStay!

AN AMAZING WINTER RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing property! The home is extremely comfortable and well maintained. We stayed at Namastay with our college aged kids and enjoyed the beautiful kitchen for dinners and game nights. The meditation room was a wonderful surprise and added to our stay. We were within blocks of the ice skating rink, great restaurants, shops and the lake. And we ran into the owners at dinner one night! Wonderful people! When heading back to South Haven, we will definitely stay here again. Thank you for the great hospitality!

CHARMING

  • 5 of 5
This house is first-rate. Each room has its own unique charm - very warm and inviting. The location is excellent – a short walk to both the lake and downtown. The owner was extremely helpful and responsive. The house was immaculate and my friends and I cannot wait to make a return trip.

DELIGHTFUL STAY--AWESOME HOUSE AND TOWN!

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely and well-planned house. The owners indicated that this was their first year to rent this house, but they clearly did their homework on how to outfit a rental. The extras--lots of hooks, plenty of towels, awesome deck and screen porch--complete with little lights for nighttime family talks. And of course they furnished comfortable beds and pillows, washer and dryer, plenty of dishes and kitchen basics. All in all-- a great week for our family with adult children and grandchildren. We loved walking to the beach and playground, watching the sunsets over the lake, and of course restaurants when we took a break from cooking.Thank you! (Next time we need more than a week to enjoy all that South Haven has to offer!)

DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE!

Didn't want to leave!
  • 5 of 5
Our family just got back from our stay at this home in South Haven and had a wonderful time. The house is absolutely gorgeous and brand new. We parked the car the first day and rode bikes everywhere the rest of the week. The house is in the perfect location - close to the beach, close to downtown and close to the Kid's Korner playground (which our daughter loved!). My only suggestion (if I had to think of one) would be to have a handheld showerhead for at least one of the showers. Bathing our toddlers was a bit challenging, and ultimately happened in the backyard in the inflatable pool we brought with us. Speaking of the backyard, the hammock is delightful and in the perfect spot - quite a few naps were taken back there! :)

The owners were great to work with and very accommodating (thanks for the nice surprise of champagne in the fridge!). We would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Owner's Response: Hi Danielle! Thanks so much for the thoughtful review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you come back soon! Thank you for the suggestion about the hand held shower for bathing the little ones-it is a GREAT suggestion! Today I purchased the Hoppop Bato Bath Tub in Aqua (it is so coooool!) which is a tub suitable for toddlers 6-24 months! The tub will make it a cinch for future guests to bath toddlers, all thanks to you!
