We have family photos taken in South Haven each year. Shown here is a sample of one of our 2011 photos taken on South Beach.

Jim Havlik purchased this house in 2005

We vacationed in South Haven for the first time in August of 2004. At that time, we had a family of 4, with a newborn and 1 year old. The town was so beautiful and kid-friendly that we knew we wanted to come back over and over. Since we are originally from Illinois and now live in the middle of Michigan, the South Haven location is a perfect meeting place for our family gatherings. We fell in love so quickly with the town that we purchased a 3 bedroom house in South Haven in November of 2004. We labored all winter to completely renovate the house into a 6 bedroom vacation home specifically designed for family reunions. We finished just in time for the summer of 2005 summer renters and the rest is history, with 100+ family reunions enjoyed at our homes!

We loved staying at this home in Michigan. We like to consider it our home away from home in South Haven. There was not one thing we needed and didn't have available to us in this fully stocked and unbelievably clean home. All that is really needed are your clothes and toiletries. Don't forget your swimsuit as the heated pool is a wonderful convenience. The kids love playing in the fenced in backyard and on the new swingset, when not playing with the abundant amount of indoor and outdoor toys, or watching a DVD in the playroom.

The location is ideal, walk to town for doughnuts and coffee, or walk to the playground or beach. We love the shopping in town at the unique stores, too. The Havlik family have compiled a book of information about the town including restaurants and local sights. We enjoyed blueberry picking with our kids and eating homemade ice cream from Sherman's . We also enjoyed visiting the town of Saugatuck for lunch and shopping, which is not too far from South Haven.

If we had any questions or problems Mr. Havlik always responded quickly and was very helpful.

We are looking forward to our stay at the house again this summer. We really think we found a true gem and plan on returning year after year!

We spent a week at the Sun House with my whole family - 10 adults and 4 kiddos. The house had plenty of room for everyone and was a really great fit for us! We loved that we could walk to the beach or to town in a matter of minutes. And you can't beat having a pool on top of that. Perfect place for large groups!

We had a wondeful vacation week in July, 2013 at the Sun Huse. It was the perfect place for a reunion with my sister and family from West Virginia. When we tired of the beach and shopping (can you believe it), we enjoyed the many accommodations at the Sun House, the pool, the hot tub and all the toys and bikes. Thank you for making our vacation so great.

Four families rented this clean, large, well stocked
home and loved it! The weather did not corporate
but thankfully the house more than made up for it!
The heated pool and hot tub was enjoyed by the
kids and adults.

My family rents a home in Michigan every year
and this was the best by far! The location was
ideal. Walking distance to the park, beach and
town.

My number one worry when renting a home is
cleanliness and this home was clean! Towels,
sheets, bathrooms, kitchen and family room.

Already planning another stay for next spring!
Thank you again!
Aliehs and family ;)

Jim and Amy,

Making yourselves so available and prompt in offering information and communication helped to make this time in S.Haven so wonderful. Your house was very clean and neat. Our gr-children loved the pool, as we did! Having games, books, so much space, updated and nice bathrooms and bedrooms, location, St. Basil Church close by and right on Lake Michigan was delightful.

Thank you,
Sharo

We rented the house for the first time this for a first time whole family vacation. What a wonderful experience and the perfect setting! The house had most of what was needed from bedding to cooking. Between the pool, hot tub, back yard and small playground in the back yard, and the toys inside all were happy. Being only a short walk to both the beach and downtown area was a plus and we found we were only about a mile from a wonderful bike path. All in all we were completely satisfied and hope to do it again sometime!

Wow, what a great house!! It had everything we needed and then some. The
Hot tub was awesome and all the rooms and the lay out was great. We walked to
town and had a great time in South Haven. Jim the owner was so great to work with. I'd do it again.

We had a wonderful weekend stay at the Sun House! 6 couples rented this home for a weekend and we were pleasantly surprised at the amount of room this house offered! We really enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub and playing board games with the extensive collection that come with the house. We had a wonderful experience, it is a very kid-friendly home with a very cool surprise game and fun area in the basement! I highly recommend renting this home- great location, great price, great experience!

My family met at the Sun House for Thanksgiving, it was the perfect location and a great house. It was our first time doing something like this and we were so impressed with all the thoughtful items the house was equipped with. Stores were near by and South Haven is so cute on its own. We are already thinking of a reason to return!

We loved this home! It was perfect for our gathering. There was a ton of space to give each of us privacy with all the bedrooms and bathrooms, but we also spent a lot of time in the great gathering areas together as a group. I've already recommended this home to several friends and family!
