Guestbook comments from the manager

Your place was as discribed, clean, comfortable, and very close to the beach. It was perfect for us and our two kids. We had the best week and will definately consider for next year.

Very nice place for small family

  • 5 of 5

Location Location Location! Stayed four nights in June. Parked our car and never used it until we left. It was three of us: my husband, one year old daughter and me. It is very quiet atmosphere, just what we needed to escape from busy Chicago. The cottage had everything we needed. My husband was very pleased finding filled gas tank in the grill. The old lighthouse just down the street. And these cozy little streets between cottages filled with cute toscano elements! Eric, the owner, is very easy to work with. Perfect! Will be back

Fine until the plumbing backed up

  • 2 of 5

My husband, I, and our infant daughter planned to stay 3 nights here in May 2016. The house isn't fancy but it's affordable, clean, and well located. On our third morning, the toilet stopped flushing and sewage backed up into the tub. The rental rules in the house state the plumbing is finicky, so we left for several hours hoping time would help. It did not. As the owner was unavailable overseas on vacation, we contacted his brother, our designated backup. After multiple unanswered phone calls and no available voicemail, plus an email to the owner, we were forced to pack up and drive home that evening as we had no working plumbing. That was two weeks ago. I have yet to hear from the owner or his brother, and I have no idea the status of our paid night that we couldn't stay (which should be refunded) or our deposit. For the record, we were two adults using the plumbing, so I can't imagine what might happen with the allowed six occupants. This may be a case of bad timing for the owner, but that doesn't comfort me when it's at my expense. Any response from the owner or his brother would have made this a much better review. Renter beware.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Spent three nights at this adorable little place that we affectionately nicknamed the SoHa Shack. Very easy to book the rental with the owner and I felt we got a good deal compared to some other area rentals. The location is awesome, about a 1 minute walk to the beach and less than 10 gets you to the downtown area. Upon arrival it was super clean and although the inside basically consists of one room, plus the bathroom the space is totally adequate and utilized well in its' set up. The outdoor space that comes with the rental is great, we ate dinner on the outside table every night and there were also seating areas around the side and front of the house. I would highly recommend this rental and already want to return and spend more time in beautiful South Haven next year!

Lovely cottage in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

It is a lovely cottage house a seconds walk to the beach. Everything that the description says is 100% accurate. The place was very clean and very welcoming. Also, the owner was a pleasure to work with and made the entire process very easy. I would recommend this place for couples or a small family. I hope to come back!
