Loved all the little extras that you usually don't get and the house was very clean. Everyone (even the kids) commented on how much they liked the house. Sitting out on the porch was so relaxing!! First time at the beach in South Haven. We all loved it. The kids said it was better than Silver Beach. Loved Clementines and Shermans Ice cream. Thanks to Kyle and Debbie for a great stay.

We agree that our front porch is a special place to be. Additionally, we're glad that you enjoyed our home's neighborhood and location.

We agree that downtown and the beach are conveniently close and that the playground just across the street is a benefit for families with young children. In addition, we continually make improvements to our home and have made several improvements since your stay. We like our home to be as updated and comfortable for people as possible.

                                                                  We had a great stay in the cottage - close to town and the beach!

                                                                  The location of the house was excellent - walking distance to town and the beach. We enjoyed eating breakfast and hanging out on the back porch. The house had character and was comfortable and met our needs - a few updates could be done, but overall a great stay!

In addition, we strive to be friendly and helpful to people renting our home, and are happy that you found us to be just that!

                                                                  Nice place, but a few issues

                                                                  This is a nice little house with good amenities and sleeping space. Older, a bit run down, but also updated to some extent and very clean. The owners are responsive and helpful. However, there are a few issues I would bring to the attention of the owners and potential renters. 1. The distance from the beaches is perhaps a little further than implied in the description. You cannot really expect to walk to the beach with your beach stuff from the house. It is a good distance, at least a mile. There is a $9 fee to park at North Beach and pretty full in that area. 2. The shower (upstairs bathroom) is not very effective and needs repair. When set to warm water the water comes out more as a fine spray than a shower. Those with long hair complained a great deal about it. 3. No beach towels at the house so make sure to bring some. Not enough bath towels for everyone either. 4. Lacking in basic cooking items like salt, sugar, etc., so make sure to bring these. Despite these issues we enjoyed our stay and had no problems. For the price -- the extra fees loom large if you stay only 2 nights as we did -- I give it 3.5 stars.

North Beach is exactly one mile and has public bathrooms and concessions. We recently made improvements to the plumbing in the upstairs shower and the water pressure is now good. We've never provided beach towels but we replenish bath towels, hand towels, and washcloths at the beginning of every season, and there are ten of each. We have a lot of kitchen supplies, from plates, bowls, and glasses, to pots and pans, to blenders, and to cooking utensils. We also have a lot of spices, flour, sugar, salt, etc.. They are in the cabinets near the oven and refrigerator.

                                                                  Absolutely gorgeous!
