Nice vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

The place is nice, very clean, about 15 min walk to the beach where dogs are allowed. The owners are very nice people, they really care about their guests ( visit to Sherman's ice cream store, box of cholcolate, veggies from their garden). We had a great time at the cottage!

Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

We spent our first time to South Haven at this cozy little cottage and it was just perfect for our family. Ed and Bridgette were there to greet us and give us the run down. As my husband and I unpacked, Ed took our kids on the golf cart to go get some ice cream (it's vacation! Ice cream before dinner is a must). The property was AMAZING for our 3 dogs who were happy to have space to run and roam freely. It is not fenced, but fortunately our dogs don't go far from us. Beach access is literally a 3 minute drive but does have A LOT of stairs to go down and no public restrooms. It wasn't totally ideal for a family of 4 with two toddlers and a bunch of stuff. The public beach, North Beach ($9 parking), was only a 7 minute drive and was big, clean and beautiful. We also spent a day in St. Joseph which was only a 25 minute drive at most. South Haven is a lovely little beach town that we look forward to visiting again. Ed and Bridgette offered wonderful, very clean, accommodations and we will definitely book with them again in the future! We still need to do the pick-your-own berries, ATV park, jet ski rental, fishing, Van Buren State Park...

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in June with our 3 children and our babysitter. Our stay was nothing less than perfect. This setting is secluded and in a huge open lot. We drove to Wal-Mart (a mere 5 minutes) and bought soccer balls for our kiddos. Our doggie came along and it was perfect for her as well. The property is sooooo clean. That alone is enough reason for us to always return! 2 nice sized bedrooms, a very clean bathroom, a living room with a sleeper bed and a kitchen rounded it out. We spent nearly the entire trip sitting out on the deck and enjoying the weather, drinking tea and watching our children and dog play in the yard. Ed and Bridget also were the most gracious hosts. They had to head home the morning after our arrival, and we were sad to see them go! They were amazing with our children. On a side note, the property does not include a washer/dryer, but they do however, have a super long clothesline which worked wonderfully for all of our beach towels. We plan to return EVERY year to this property! Also, we had plenty of space for a pack-n-play in our bedroom and a twin blow up bed in the spare room. I cannot emphasize enough how perfect this vacation home is. Location, cleanliness, options, and owners are tops. I am a travel agent and would recommend this property to any family that isn't needing the top notch amenities such as a pool, beach front, golf course, etc... It's a few minutes drive down to the beach where we also spent hours each day. Quaint, clean, and secluded.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This place was just perfect! Good location, affordable pricing, and very clean. The homeowners were very friendly - Bridget gave us cucumbers and zuchinni from the garden. However, beware of Edward, he insists that having ice cream for dinner is ok!

Michigan Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This is an apartment attached to the weekend home of the owners. It worked out quite well for our family, with plenty of sleeping accomodations, full kitchen, BBQ and deck. What made it extra special was the owners who took time to give us a welcoming tour of town, a gigantic yard full of apple and pear trees, and a location far enough away from the city to thoroughly enjoy catching fireflys and stargazing. The accomodations are simple and welcoming. No pretentiousness here. We recommend this for any family looking for a simple, affordable location in a great location.
