Perfect little romantic getaway. Can’t get much closer to the beach than this! We came during the off-peak season so everything was real quiet. Owners were super helpful in every way possible and so kind hearted. Enjoyed every minute. Can’t wait to come back!
We are so happy that you and your wife had a great time in S Haven. It was wonderful to meet both of you and your adorable little dog.
Sept and Oct are always my favorite months here because of the peacefulness of the beach. I’m happy you found it that way!
You are always welcome to return! !!😀🏖
Not as expected
The location across from Lake Michigan is a plus! There is construction going on next door and it does block partial view of the lake from inside the rental. The pictures on Vrbo, are not what the property actually looks like. The owner informed me that construction occurs Mon-Fri, but on Saturday and Sunday morning, construction was being done. The Tyvek flapping in the wind was annoying and we didn't notice this until the evening when construction had stopped and it was quiet. The interior of the house is a little outdated and there was a "pet odor" that was on the futon covering and in the bedding (comforter, sheets and pillow cases). I sprayed the bedding, futon and the rooms with Febreeze, but the odor was still there when we went to bed. Very unpleasant. On the most part, the rental was clean, but I retrieved something that had fallen behind the dresser and it didn't look like it had seen a broom for awhile. Also, leaving the rental from the sliders, are two pallets leading to the sandy pathway. One is broken, which may be a safety concern for a handicapped person. My husband and I booked for two days, but only stayed one. The location is great, but this rental was a disappointment to us.
Great Get Away
Love this location and Karen the owner is so easy to work with!
SO glad you had a good time at the Little House!!
I hope you continue to be a returning guest!’😀
Listing Needs an Update
While the location of this rental can’t be beat (steps away from North Beach), the pictures no longer represent reality.
A giant new beach house has been built directly in front of the Tiny House, eliminating part of the lake view and all of the ambience. There is no charming swing in the “front yard,” only scaffolding—about 6” from the sliding door.
Knowing this before booking a weekend stay, I may have reconsidered. I was looking for a relaxed weekend away, but instead had daily construction noise and flapping Tyvek cracking like fireworks (seriously—it woke me up one night).
Because the tiny house needs a significant update, plus I paid an extra cleaning fee and a large pet fee for 2 days, I felt I overpaid for this rental.
Other significant issues included a shower that took nearly 15 minutes to get hot water/did not drain and an dilapidated outdoor patio area that included a cigar butt on the table and a hot tub full of weeds.
Again, expectations are all with vacation rentals. Had the listing better reflected reality, my review may have been different. As is, I can not recommend the Tiny House.
I am so sorry that your experience was a poor one.
I am unable to control the construction that is going on in front of the Little House, but I beg to differ that the view from the sliding glass doors had been compromised.
I have addressed the issues that you have mentioned to the best of my ability, notwithstanding the total non-control that I have over construction that occurs from Mon-Fri.
Also, I rely on my guests to advise me if there are problems during their stay, so that I can resolve them as quickly as possible.
The great majority of my guests have not had issues with construction, but as they say: “the customer is always right.”
Would go back
Karen did everything to make my stay enjoyable. There was a lot of construction going on. The hospitality out weighed the inconvenience of the construction.
Right on the Beach!!
So nice to wake up to see the gorgeous North Beach in South Haven! Karen was so helpful and even welcomed us with a gift certificate to a local marvelous bakery! Cozy stay in a fabulous location!!
Thank you SO much for your wonderful review!!
It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope you will feel welcome to return to the LH next summer if it fits in with your plans.
Have a wonderful Autumn!!🍂🍁🍂🍁
