Annual Sisters Get-Away week

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved our time in South Haven this summer! Serendipity was the perfect home that suited all of our needs. The pool and hot tub is what sold us on this home when searching for the perfect rental. We had so much fun cooking, swimming and lounging around. Location was great!

Great house!

Hosted a group of friends at this house and it was fantastic. Despite dreary weather the house had everything we needed for a perfect, chill weekend. I’ll be back, hopefully with more sun next time!

South Haven PERFECTION....

  • 5 of 5

I planned a family get together for my parents and my husband’s parents, so I needed a location that had plenty of space (9 people) with lots to do. This property fit the bill. We had a marvelous week and would definitely return if given the opportunity.

This property is very well maintained and clean. The outside is just as beautiful as the inside with the swimming pool and pool deck being the main attraction for the family. This is an old Victorian house that has been updated and decorated in a way that would make anybody feel welcome; the house is a real treat in and of itself.

Here are some things I worried about that may help any other traveler with the same questions:

• Will there be enough towels? Yes, there are tons of towels all over the house. We’ve stayed in places that barely had enough for one round of showers, not here. We had more than enough. If you think you are running low, keep looking. There are towels in all kinds of nooks and crannies!

• Will there be enough hot water for everybody to shower at the same time? We had plenty of hot water to go around. I even have a teenage daughter who spends way too long in the shower.

• Does it have a full-size washer and dryer? Yes, you can wash large loads of laundry.

• Is the kitchen well equipped? The kitchen has everything you need including a coffee pot, dishes, cup, and cooking equipment.

• Are the bedrooms comfortable? Three bedrooms are VERY roomy and comfortable. The room with the bunkbeds is a bit tight, but kids would never care. There is a room downstairs that is usable as a bedroom but isn’t REALLY a bedroom. The futon makes it a great place for a teenager who needs his/her own space.

• Will we feel crammed together? Definitely not! The house is very spacious and offers a variety of spaces for people to “hang”.

• Do I need we need to bring pool toys? If you have very young children, yes. That said, there are lots of floaties and pool “stuff” in the garage.

• What if it rains? There are plenty of games in the house to keep everybody busy. Check the garage for some fun activities too.

• Can we walk to town? Yes, it’s a short walk to the all of the shops and restaurants.

If you have a lot of people staying and the money to afford it, this is the place for you!

This property left a lot to be desired. The pictures shown are very deceiving. Especially the pool, which was the reason that we booked the home. The pool was in complete disarray. The pool deck was filthy, the water was thick and slimy with the consistincy of hair gel, a ton of debis at the bottom as well. The hot tub was covered in visible mold on the head rests and cover. It seemed they tried masking this with extreme amounts of chorine. Un safe conditions due to electrical cords all over the pool deck. The bed sheets looked like they haven’t been changed before arrival, there were hairs and debris throughout the sheets when the comforter was pulled back. The toilets were dirty. Half of the TVs in the house didn’t work along with a ceiling fan. Outside garbages filled to the top. Serveral bugs spotted throughout the house. Kitchen floor unevenness, my husband actually broke a toe due to smashing it into the inch rise from the living room to the kitchen. This was a horrible experience. We had scheduled 4 days here and left the next morning after arrival. The management company has yet to respond about a refund for this booking.

Owner's Response: We are surprised by your perception of Serendipity. This home always receives high ratings from our guests. It is difficult to address the vague statements regarding the home having “a lot to be desired” and “the photos being deceiving”. The photos of the home are of the actual property as it is today and have not been amended since your reservation was made. Other than the condition of the pool, we believe your perceptions are bit overstated, particularly as it relates to the pool water consistency. However, it would have been our pleasure to resolve any of the items you mention had we been provided with the opportunity to do so. The concerns you raised were not brought to our attention until the following day of the 25th May and you were provided with a courtesy early check in of 2 p.m. on the 24th of May. As we attempted to address your concerns upon being made aware, you refused and abruptly departed. Regarding your comments about the electrical cords, I believe what you are speaking to is the pool cover pump which is necessary to remove rain water from the automatic pool cover before opening the cover. The pump is on a GFI circuit so it is actually safe and meets current code. All of the homes in our portfolio that have pools have these cover pumps. As it relates to the “mold” on the hot tub where the head rest used to be, we believe what you witnessed is actually the adhesive residue from the head rest which has fallen off. All of our pools are maintained at the industry recommended sanitization levels. Garbage services are provided every Monday except for holidays. Since you arrived on Thursday, garbage from the prior guest was in the cans. However, we provide enough cans to accommodate typical guest use in one week. In the unlikely event more garbage is generated that the cans can accommodate, we are more than happy to have the garbage removed early when notified and given the opportunity. The general cleanliness and alleged non-function TVs and fans appeared to all be in good order when we inspected the home upon your departure so we are unable to speak to those concerns. In the event unplanned circumstances took you home early as a reason for not allowing us the opportunity to easily remedy your concerns, the travel protection coverage addresses many unplanned events which can occur prior to or during your stay.
