About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6 & Air Conditioning. Views! Views! Views!


Key Lime is your perfect Summer Escape! A classic beach house located right on North Beach. The cottage is less than a 15 second, level walk to the sugar sand beach and Lake Michigan.

Fantastic Views from the Living Room and Outdoor Spaces. Please call Debbie with any questions. 314-602-1670

Decorated in cottage chic style with a contemporary flair the cottage has all the charm and comfort of a vintage Michigan cottage. The cottage is well-maintained, non-smoking, nicely appointed, yet a comfortable “beach house” with air conditioning and all the amenities you expect.

Key Lime Cottage sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms. 1 bedroom has a queen bed, the 2nd a double bed and the 3rd bedroom has shorter than normal twins mattresses, best for kids only. A kid's cot is provided for a little one. A laundry facility is included for your convenience.

South Haven has a lovely lifestyle, much of it is lived outdoors. The patios at Key Lime Cottage are the perfect places to enjoy it all. Just sit and sip your morning coffee, enjoy alfresco dining on the side patio and roast marshmallows for dessert out back.

South Haven: South Haven is a 200 year old port town that hums with family-friendly activities all through the year. The famous lighthouse welcomes guests to the shores of our sugar sand beaches. Great shopping, trendy restaurants and of course the beach, means you will never be at a loss for things to do. South Haven has many cultural, culinary and entertainment offerings to lure the visitor off the beach, too. Local wineries, expeditions up the river and our many festivals highlight the best that South Haven has to offer.

Summer in South Haven where all the rituals of summers past are still present—you can walk or bike anywhere, there are plenty of places to buy ice cream, and the long, sunny afternoons mean playing on the beach, or fishing in the Lake or River.

For over 100 years visitors have been vacationing in the homes and cottages of South Haven. Key Lime Cottage continues this great tradition by providing an exciting beach house experience for our guests.

Come, sample the essence of South Haven:

it’s history, flavor, watercolor sunsets and so much more.

A great cottage for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family has stayed at the Key Lime for the past three summers and we couldn’t be happier! The ability to easily go back and forth between the beach and cottage for lunch, naps, or breaks, the quick level walk to the beach, the quite street location, and the unobstructed views from the front windows make the Key Lime an ideal location for grandkids, grandparents, and everyone in-between. The cottage is thematic, cozy, inviting, and provides a wonderful lake living experience. The beds are comfortable, the living area is spacious for a cottage, and the two large outdoor patios are perfect for grilling and dining al fresco. The Key Lime is within walking distance of water rental shops for the active beachgoers, the downtown stores and restaurants for those wanting to venture off the sand, and coffee shops and bakeries for morning people. Debbie is great to work with and the permanent North Beach residents are friendly and social. We love the Key Lime and it has been the source of many great memories for our family. We’ll be back next summer!

Owner's Response: Many thanks, Rebecca. We are happy to hear you and your friends had a wonderful time at Key Lime Cottage. It's the perfect getaway location. We have retained the special appointments of a vintage North Beach cottage while renovating it to modern standards. The Views from the living areas and outdoor patios are incredible. Beach, turquoise waters and endless Michigan skies. That’s what guests come to love while at Key Lime. We’re always happy to hear our guests experience was “5 Star”. Girls Weekend or Family Getaway. Key Lime Cottage is the perfect spot for all. Many thanks

Charming, Beachside Location, Very Clean

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a wonderful surprise. First time we have ever used an internet site to locate a vacation house so we weren't sure if everything would be OK. Key Lime exceeded all our expectations! Right on the beach with great views. The cottage was decorated like a beach cottage should be. So clean, so cute, so convenient. Great customer service. Everything was as the manager said it would be. We are coming back. Thank you!
