Great House and location.

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this property. I loved the house, and the location was perfect. Both the beach and the town were a couple of blocks away, so my children could walk to both. The house was very clean, beds were comfortable, and it had two large areas where my family could spend time together. We will definitely rent this home again.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family vacation while staying here for 2 weeks. Ages ranged from 2-67 and everyone loved this house. The screened-in porch was great. The kitchen had what we needed to make meals at home. We also did some grilling and made s'mores by the fire pit in the back. The house was clean on arrival, beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were stocked with fabulous towels. Julie was prompt in answering our questions and easy to work with. Being at the end of a dead-end street, it was quiet with nearly no traffic so the kids could ride bikes, play soccer and play in the street (like the good old days!) We parked the car and walked to town and the beach (5 and 7 year old walked, 2 year old in stroller). We biked the trails and played at Kids Corner. There's several great restaurants in town, our favorite was SuCasa (Mexican, by the movie theater). A couple of mornings we walked to Cafe Julia for coffee and a treat/pastry. The farmers market was also fun to visit just down the street. There's some fun shops along Phoenix Str. to check out. Overall, we just LOVE summertime in South Haven and this house was perfect for us!

Great location, nicely furnished and clean!

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely and very clean. It is situated on a quiet dead end street in a great location, walking distance to town and South Beach. The furniture is comfortable, and the owners did a great job updating the house. We particularly enjoyed the screened porch. It was nice to have a washer and dryer available. We are looking forward to visiting again.

Wonderful New Addition!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the new addition! The owners and builder did a wonderful job blending the old with the new and the result is a very friendly atmosphere to spend a week in South Haven. We really liked the new family room, the wrap around screened in porch, and the balcony off the bedroom was fun to sit in the sun or eat lunch while watching the boats go up and down the Black River. There are so many places in the house to choose from to enjoy some down time, and with both the town and the beach within walking distance, a fun filled day is only minutes away. Short drives to either Saugatuck, Holland or St Joseph make this location a great home base for day trips. The owners are great to work with and keep a clean and well maintained house.

My favorite!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented a few homes in the south beach area of South Haven, and this has been my favorite. It was clean and well furnished. The furniture was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. The linens were nice and the towels were fluffy! The kitchen was well apportioned and we had everything we needed. The location is perfect for enjoying all that South Haven has to offer. The owner was attentive and made sure we had what we needed.

I'd like to go back and stay there a month!
