Equipped with a theater room, pool table and electronic dart board. A sandy beach is located directly behind Sunset Haven. There are just over 100 stairs to the beach. The home also includes a hot tub, swimming pool, outdoor shower, fire pit, wrap around deck & large sweeping lawn (all having stunning unobstructed views of Lake Michigan). Located between South Haven and St. Joseph, each of which are a 15 minute drive. Union Pier/Sawyer area to the south and Saugatuck to the north are 20-30 minute drives away.

Pool heat available at an extra cost.
Fire Pit available directly off the back deck over looking Lake Michigan (need to supply own firewood, which is sold by several nearby establishments).

We spent the weekend at Sunset Haven with a group of good friends and had the best time ever! The reason I chose this property was for the private beach and it did not disappoint. The beachfront is beautiful and private and we basically had the entire beach to ourselves. The lakefront here is so clean and nice and great for swimming. Yes there are quite a bit of stairs and I'm sure the older folks would have a hard time, but if you go slow they arent too bad. The sunsets are just spectacular and our group has about 100 pictures of sunsets every night they were breathtaking. I also chose this house because of the heated pool and hot tub and its unique how at John's property it faces the lake when other homes have the pool in the back. So you could watch the sunset while swimming! It was heated too, which is a plus. The house itself is beautiful, great basement and kitchen. One of the best things is that John is so great to work with. Quick to respond to all your questions and helpful. I will definitely rent this property again!
We spent the weekend at the Sunset Haven Luxury Home to celebrate my father's 70th birthday. It far exceeded all of our expectations. Although the house looks spectacular online, it is even nicer than it looks in the pictures. You truly have to see this amazing house!! We had 12 people staying at the house, 6 adults and 6 children ranging in age from 10 months to 7 years old. There was plenty of room for us all to spread out and the kids especially enjoyed the pool and the "Hot Pool" (Hot Tub). Everyone had an amazing time and we hope to make it an annual trip. Thanks, John!!
Our family has rented homes in Michigan for the last 6 years and this home is by far the best we have ever stayed in. We are a family of 13 and three generations. There was something to do for all of us. Indoors was a large media room and pool table. Outdoors, the pool, hot tub and Lake Michigan gave everyone many choices. Everything in the house was clean well maintained and the kitchen was up-scale. A beautiful home. We enjoyed St Joseph, South Haven and Saugatuck.
We would recommend this home to everyone.
This home is spectacular and exactly as shown in the pictures and described. The view of lake Michigan is stunning and the sunsets are breathtaking. The home was immaculate when we arrived and the owner was very helpful with information about the surrounding area. I recommend this property to anyone who wants a trouble free and relaxing vacation
My family--youngsters, teenagers, grandparents, and all--greatly enjoyed our stay in this lovely home. The interior is beautiful and the layout is open, creating a place that is inclusive and bright with sunlight. The view of the lake is extraordinary, the pool and hottub were wonderful for relaxing, we played lots of games in the big backyard, the beach is great for walking, and the lake is perfect for all--especially little kids.
Overall, we couldn't have been happier. John was wonderful and helpful. Everything in the home was up-to-date and working great. We hope to be back.
After vacationing with large groups of family in the Outer Banks of NC, we looked for a similar luxury house in the midwest. This house has the beach access, pool and hot tub we were looking for in a gorgeous wooded area. What a treat! The house was very clean and the views were priceless. However, we would not recommend this house for families with children under 4 years old or for families with more than 1 elderly family member. There are open steps everywhere you turn. Also, window blinds in the second floor bedrooms would be nice in the summer to allow for sleeping past sunrise.
