Great place for a weekend in South Haven.

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome. Very clean, exactly as described, if not better. The pictures definitely don't do this house justice. There was plenty of room for 3 families. While we were disappointed the private beach was closed (they did tell us ahead of time) South Beach is definitely within walking distance, even with little kids. We'd definitely consider staying here again the next trip to South Haven!

Family vacation 2017

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed this home to be in for our first family vcation in South Haven. We found it to be clean and lots of amenities. The beachy feel of this home made it feel like we were at the beach. We did miss the beach access but made the best of the public beach. Thanks Cindy and Rich for sharing your home!

Lovely one-story home in South Haven!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, updated home in a great location! Each day we enjoyed taking a short walk to the beach area, where there are many benches to sit and enjoy the gorgeous views of Lake Michigan and the lighthouse. Very close to Kid's Corner, if you have little ones. We were delighted to find a home that was accessible for our daughter, who is in a wheelchair. They aren't very easy to find!

Love the setup of this home! The large master, as well as one bedroom with a full-sized bed are on one end of the house, and the third bedroom, with a full bed plus a twin AND trundle were at the complete opposite side of the home, allowing for great privacy if needed. All bedding throughout the house was extremely comfortable, and we slept well!

The house has been very nicely decorated, and includes many seating areas and lots of room at the dining room table. The kitchen is large and comes with a wonderful assortment of items for your stay - everything from oil, sugar, flour, condiments, and on and on. This was extremely helpful during our stay! Tons of pots, pans, baskets, bowls, plates, cups, and enough silverware to feed an army! Mixers, blenders, coffee maker, toaster, etc. etc. etc. Very well-stocked for us - even trash bags, paper towels, toilet paper, laundry detergent, and more. All white, modern appliances.

The house was wonderfully clean, and also well-stocked with loads of towels, washcloths, etc. Cindy even has supplies of toiletries, shampoo, sunscreen, etc.! The back patio area is so inviting! Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to use it often due to rainy weather in May. But we did see that there is a nice grill and fire pit, as well as two tables and at least six chairs to enjoy quiet time outside with friends.

The home is in a super quiet, private residential neighborhood close enough to town to walk to shops and restaurants. All houses in SH seem to be SO nicely kept - we didn't see a rundown property during our entire stay, and it's great to walk through the neighborhoods and look at the various styles and kinds of houses. It's a beautiful town, with fun shops and restaurants, and a wonderful house to rent. We highly recommended this spot!

P.S. We are long-time VRBO renters, and Cindy wins the prize for being the best owner for communication! Her response time via email was very prompt and always helpful and thoughtful! Thanks, Cindy and Rich, for a lovely week in your SH home.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family getaway in the summer. The outside patio is a great place for gathering. The house is spacious and has everything you could ever need for a trip. The location was perfect walking distance to the beach and to town. Thanks, we will be back

Very Therapeutic Ladies Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends from college decided to meet in South Haven for a long weekend as it was centrally located for everyone driving in. The house was perfect for us. We had plenty of space and each had our own bed, which was wonderful (there were five of us), and two full bathrooms which was great. The house was very comfortable and clean and well stocked with all of the kitchen necessities, toiletries and linens. There is a Meijer close by where we stocked up on food and drinks. The patio is secluded, shady and quiet and we spent a lot of time out there drinking wine and catching up. There is plenty of seating inside and out. The public beach is about a 10 minute walk from the house. The downtown area where many of the restaurants are located probably took about 25 minutes to walk to, although walking along the water the entire way is very scenic. There were great restaurants downtown, some cut shops, and a wine tasting place. The house is near the lake, but not right on the lake. We were disappointed that you could not access the beach at the end of their private drive (I guess the water level is high this year, so there are a set of stairs down to the seawall, but no beach)...but the public beach was very convenient. There is a place to rent kayaks and paddle boards and a coffee/ice cream stand. Overall, it was a wonderful therapeutic weekend...perfect place for much needed catching up with old friends and a break from the hectic work and kids schedules. Thank you so much!
