LAKESHORE COTTAGE W/ FIREPIT & LK. MI ACCESS- 2 NIGHT MID-WEEK IN JULY $900

South Haven House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms + Den, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 10

**MID-WEEK JULY SPECIAL**

Stay 2 nights mid-week in July for $900

This three bedroom cottage is located in the peaceful lakeshore neighborhood of Sunset Shores and has everything needed to create lasting vacation memories with family and friends. Located just 10 minutes north of South Haven and 15 minutes south of Saugatuck/ Douglas, shops, dining and local activities are easily within reach.

Upon entering the main foyer, you will be greeted by a bright and spacious living room furnished with a 52” flat screen TV, premium satellite and Blu-ray DVD player. There is also a wood-burning fireplace. The bright and airy feel can be contributed to the vaulted ceilings and sliding doors on two sides that lead out to the expansive deck. Off the living room is a well-equipped large kitchen with dining area that easily accommodates six (additional seating available with a folding table and chairs). Another set of sliders leads you to the deck and the gas grill for those summer barbeques.

Families and larger groups will appreciate the flexible bedding arrangements provided in the three bedrooms and den. A master bedroom offers a Queen bed and a full private bath. The two additional guest rooms each offer a Full bed and Twin bed. The small den off the kitchen makes the perfect quiet room while also providing bedding for two with the Twin Trundle.

Only .3 miles to the association beach (just about a 5 minute walk), you’ll experience breathtaking views of Lake Michigan and a pristine sandy beach beckoning you to relax and soak in the sun. At the end of the day unwind on the large deck overlooking the expansive tree lined grassy yard. Wrap up your evening around the fire pit while enjoying the evening sky.

Combine with Weathervane (located right next door) to accommodate larger groups up to 19 people!

NICE HOUSE BUT DISHONEST DESCRIPTION OF AMENITIES!

  • 2 of 5
We rented this house for 4 nights. We were 4 adults (2 seniors) , a two-year-old and 3 mos. old baby. We thought it a bit pricey but were encouraged by the beach description and pictures of the place.

ABOUT THE BEACH ACCESS!!!! The first and only time my husband and I checked out the beach, we reached the beach stairway and were greeted by a large red sign that said, "USE AT YOUR OWN RISK"!! After carefully walking down 113 steep, rickety steps, with a few planks missing, we reached the beach. Needless to say we never went again as it was totally unacceptable for seniors and children. We felt so cheated!!! The was the biggest disappointment! We were able to find a much nicer, easily accessible beach in South Haven.

The next disappointment was not knowing about the smelly well water which we couldn't have the children drinking. There was no ice maker or garbage disposal as stated either. The kitchen was adequately furnished with dishes, silverware, but if you want to cook or do laundry, you need to bring EVERYTHING! not even a complimentary salt & pepper!! Needless to say, we've stayed at much better equipped properties for a more reasonable price!

The gas grill was dirty and hard to start, but the deck area was nice. The yard was covered in ant hills. The house was dated but adequate and clean, although the only comfortable bed was in the master bedroom, so some of us didn't sleep so well. Bathrooms had small soap, towels, toilet paper. It took a very long time to get hot water and we watched our showering!! There were limited television channels and my husband couldn't get the Detroit Tiger games which really frosted him! He had to go into a bar in town to watch. No internet access either, it is the year 2013-glad we had our 4g phones! At least the air conditioning worked well!

In short, we managed to have a good time with our family in South Haven, but really felt cheated by this rental company/owner, and the misrepresentation of the property and the beach amenity. We'd love to get a partial refund but know better. It's all about the $$$ !!!

We honestly could not recommend this property as represented, to anyone in good conscience. It was really only worth half what we paid for what we really received.
Extremely amusing to us, was that the rental agency actually left an envelope suggesting tipping their cleaning service!!! At the rental fee we paid?? Really???

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time to review your stay at Sunset Shores. Our vacation planners have a very extensive knowledge of the various beach environments available to guests in our area. Many of the area beaches, especially those homes with private or association beaches are located atop sand dunes characteristic of the Michigan shoreline which require stairs to the beach. The steps to the beach at this home have since been reconstructed although stair access is still required.

Well water is common in most homes along Lake Michigan. We have looked into equipping the home with better water filtration as well as making sure some additional kitchen items are provided. Any issues had with amenities such as a hard starting grill require a call to our 24/7 service line and someone will be out to help you with any issues. The property was advertised with no internet.
