Why Mari & Paul Thomas chose Southwest Michigan

The property is located in a residential neighborhood just 2 blocks to the South Public Beach and Kids Corner Park. We are 6 blocks from the Black River which is the main walking path from downtown to the world famous South Pier, Lighthouse. We are also on the Van Buren bike trail, just follow the signs to 20+ miles of biking. An easy stroll to all the popular South Haven spots from our property which is great for family gatherings, no car required! If you have younger children the Kids Corner Park is just down the block for them to enjoy our awesome wooden fort while the parents enjoy the great Lake Michigan view.

Perfect location & a pretty home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a winter vacation, and it was a great choice! The home is roomy, clean & overall very pretty. The location of the home was what really made the entire family excited. It is just a short walk (about 2 blocks) to a beautiful South Haven beach. The Kids Corner park was only about a block away and super fun for the young ones. With the downtown within walking distance and a church just off of the beach, everything was well within reach.

In addition to the location, the home's dining table was a big hit! It is a wonderfully made, custom, wooden table that is absolutely perfect for family dinners and even just for evening conversation. It fit 10-12 of us comfortably plus there was extra seating at the kitchen counter. The upstairs rec area was a nice space for the tweens & the teens that traveled with us. With this being said, there was room for everyone.

As for opportunity areas? There is no bathtub in the home - only showers. This was somewhat tricky with trying to bathe a toddler & a young child but we managed. Lastly, the outside deck is very nice but leaves little room for a grassy lawn. However, with a beach & park so close, you don't miss it that much.

Enjoyed the 3 levels of this property and the numerous bathrooms.

  • 4 of 5

We were glad to be able to walk to the beach, downtown, the kids park and to watch sunsets. The deck is great but there is no backyard to speak of. We had numerous children and a bathtub would have been helpful as well as an outside shower to wash the sand off!

Great house and amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We just had a blast here. And there was nothing to worry about at the house. Everything was clean and new and up to date. What an easy walk to the beach it was. And town was just a little further but easy walk as well. I'd love to come back with a couple families sometime soon. Thank you!

This home was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The home was wonderful! Three of my four daughters, their husbands, and their children had plenty of room for sleeping (we had a few pack-n-plays and a couple of sleeping bags in addition to the beds) and for spreading out for movie watching, game playing, and just hanging out.

The kitchen was beautiful and perfectly equipped with top-of-the-line appliances, dishes, and supplies. With the extra large table, island seats, and deck table, we had plenty of room to sit down for meals. We loved the wide-open island where the grandkids could sit and play while meals were being prepared.

The spacious bathrooms were well designed for parents supervising kid showers!After our short walk home from the beach, we could hose the kids off next to the deck, have them come in the back door and get right into the shower--sometimes three cousins at a time!-- without tracking through the house. We were concerned about no bathtub for the babies, but the huge kitchen sink worked just fine! (We had brought a very small blow-up pool to put in the shower if needed for a make-shift bathtub, but we did not have to use it.)

We have been to South Haven many times, but I found this location to be a grandma's dream! Not only could we walk easily to the beach and to the park, we could walk to town for ice cream, breakfast treats, and candy!
