The home was beautiful, exactly as advertised and perfect for our needs. We put one couple with a baby on the first floor master suite. Upstairs, a couple and two children ages 2 and 4 took the room with 4 double beds. The room with bunk beds was available for the 3 boys age 6-15 (with room for a 4th), and that left a nice room with a queen bed for me!
Plenty of seating in the kitchen/dining area for all of us, as well as outdoor seating. The little ones loved the backyard toys and play area. The older kids were thrilled with the wall-mounted big screen TV set up for TV, DVD and video games.
We all *walked* to the dunes and Lake Michigan one day. Other days, just a short drive brought us into charming South Haven: its downtown, the harbor, the beaches, and children's park there. We just missed berry-picking season but maybe next time.
The owners automate everything, so informational emails and billing requests occur automatically. I was a little surprised *not* to get more personalized communications, but every time we had a question, they always answered very promptly, and our deposit was refunded within 10 days.
Would certainly recommend this location and this property to others! My only caveat is that on the trail to the dunes, we did pick up a couple ticks. So dress or spray appropriately to avoid that.
