Welcome to the 'L'Aqua' house! This spacious 2200 square foot summer getaway home was completely remodeled during the summer of 2007. Tastefully decorated with an eclectic mix of antiques as well as modern decor from all over the world. Cherry hardwood floors enhance the overall beauty and appeal of this home. This awesome home has five bedrooms, each its own unique color and sleeps 12 very comfortably (King size bed, three queen beds, and two sets of twin bunk beds). There are three full size bathrooms, two with skylights, and all very distinctive in their blue, green and turquoise palettes. This jewel is only two blocks from South Beach and an easy five minute walk to downtown shops and restaurants.
Our many conveniences include a beautiful state of the art kitchen with all new stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops, ample cookware and utensils, loads of recessed lighting and all on dimmers. Sliding door off the kitchen is an easy access to the spacious deck. The deck table/chairs and bar make this the perfect atmosphere for evening entertainment. Recessed outdoor lighting sets the mood! Our home has central air conditioning as well.
No smoking and no pets allowed. The weekly turnover day is Sunday for L'Aqua House - please make a note of this when planning your vacation travel!
I spent the long Memorial Day weekend at L'Aqua House with my husband, 2 children, parents, and sister and brother-in-law. From the moment we walked through the door, L'Aqua House was amazing. The actual house is even better than the beautiful pictures. There are so many great spots to relax in that you never felt crowded. The front porch is spacious and great to have morning coffee on or an after dinner drink. The deck/patio is great for grilling out and there is a small yard for kids to play in. The bedrooms upstairs are wonderful and both bathrooms are spacious for multiple families. We only had one little guy stay in the bunk-bed room, but more kids would LOVE it. This was his favorite spot to be with lots of room to play in. The owner took time and heart to create a BEAUTIFUL binder of everything you can do while staying in South Haven. From restaurants, to museums, to wineries everything you could possibly do is placed neatly in a travel guide at your fingertips. The house is a couple blocks to the beautiful beach and just a little bit further to the fun town and farmers market. You really never have to drive anywhere if you do not want! In addition, the owner was so great about answering any questions that I had prior to our arrival. Look no further if you want a wonderfully clean and charming place to stay at!!
For the past few years our family has enjoyed this wonderful place for our destination vacation in Michigan. Only a short drive from Illinois and convenient for all of us to meet here makes it very easy to stay again. This house has everything, spacious bedrooms, lots of bathrooms and outdoor entertainment or watching the sunset from the front porch. We feel the owner/manager was easy to work with and made it seamless, like it was our house for the week. Short walk to Lake Michigan and to downtown South Haven if you want. The house was very clean, beds were very comfy and great natural lighting. We will be back again. Thanks so much.
I visited L'Aqua the last week of August 2013 (Sorry for the late review!) with my parents and fiance and we had the most fabulous week! L'Aqua is clean, cutely decorated, has a great kitchen, is located close to both beaches & has a lot of space. We loved both making meals & going out for meals, but every night always ended with the 4 of us relaxing on the patio, listening to music (an iHome is is the kitchen for your use) and drinking a glass of wine. L'Aqua is located on a quiet street but is walking distance to the north beach. We actually ended up renting bikes for the week and would ride our bike all over town, which was a great time. The north beach is pretty private, but we preferred the south beach, which was only a 5 min drive from the house (or a 10 min bike ride). The south beach had more people and was close to a pier we liked to walk to. This beach also had snacks and chairs for rent. The owner was very easy to work with, prompt & professional. Booking & checking in/out was a breeze. I would recommend this house to anyone and would love to stay here again the next time we visit South Haven.
This house is really as nice as it looks in the pictures. It was impeccably clean and the kitchen had all the necessities and some extras, like a coffee grinder. There were plenty of towels and nice linens.
Our party had 9 people, including four kids under 6 and we had plenty of room. The kids loved the room with the bunk beds. It was large enough to accomodate them and had enough extra room that we could have easily fit two pack-and-play cribs in the room. This room could easily sleep six kids. The house also had a Pack-and-play for use, which I don't think they mention in the description. The house is an easy 2.5 block walk to the beach and you can also easily walk to downtown South Haven's shopping areas.
I will mention that being an older home, the stairs are quite steep. If you have trouble with stairs, you will want to make sure that your party allows you use of the first floor master bedroom. It was not an issue for us, or the kids, but something to take note of if you have trouble with stairs.
The owner was very easy to work with and made the booking and check-in/check-out process very easy.
We hope to be back soon.
Our family has vacationed along the coast of Lake Michigan for many years, but we have never spent any time in South Haven. We decided on this location as we were looking for something a bit more upscale, and this house most certainly fit the bill! Gorgeous home! The kitchen was a dream come true as we love to cook and entertain, and L'Aqua had every amenity possible. The rooms were spacious, tastefully decorated, and the beds were as comfortable as could be. My younger son just loved the zebra room! The location was key, as it was only two short blocks from the beach, and our three kids had no trouble whatsoever making the trek down to the beautiful white sandy beaches. We booked it with another family, and it was the perfect size for our combined group of 10. Thanks again for such memorable summer vacation. We will most certainly be coming back to L'Aqua again next year!
