Laurel Henkel purchased this bungalow in 2012
We love the pace of life and friendly people in South Haven. Hanging out at the beach, visiting downtown, watching boats float along the Black River or simply taking in a beautiful Lake Michigan sunset makes for a great vacation.
The Henkel Bungalow has many special touches. Roomy interior, heated outdoor shower, slate fire pit, custom built play fort, beach equipment and much more! Newcome beach within walking distance. Great place to make special memories with friends & family.
What a perfect place to stay for a beach vacation! We come every summer but this was our first time staying here and definitely not our last! My husband and I came with our two boys (age 2 & 3). They loved the backyard. How perfect for little ones. The weather wasn't very nice but the house made up for it. Plenty of fun things to do here. Can't wait to come back next year and make more memories!!
We selected the Henkel Bungalow based on the reviews and there was nothing that disappointed!! The attention to detail in the house was above and beyond anything we've seen before. We were there for a girls' weekend and have stayed at several other places in the past. I don't think we'll have to waste any time planning next year.....we'll be back! Laurel was great to work with and wanted to make sure we had everything we needed. As we were checking in, we were joking because anything we had possibly forgotten, we knew she'd have....and we were always right!
Beautiful house....beautiful, inviting furnishings....great location....open floor plan was the best!! The game machine brought back lots of fun memories! Can't wait for better weather next time to enjoy the front and back porches! The plan was to hit as many wineries as we could and we never made it to one! Had so much fun at the house and in the town of South Haven at the shops, especially the antique shops seeing so many memories, we didn't even miss the wineries!
Laurel is great to rent from!
This was our second stay in the bungalow. The house is beautiful and very comfortable. For indoors, there are board games to play, CDs with movies to watch, books to read and you can do it all in front of a warm fireplace (easy to turn on). The kitchen is fully equipped and is part of the living space. The outside is peaceful and ideal for children of various ages. There is almost no traffic on the street as it is a dead end street. The backyard is ideal for little children--our younger children (age 3 and 5) ran free around and played in the little house. Our older children (age 10 and 12) loved to play frisbee, make s'mores or went to the nearby beach. Laurel, the owner, was very quick to respond to all our inquiries and has always been helpful. We love staying in any of her properties in South Haven. Looking forward to our future stays there!
Our two children along with their families stayed with my husband and I for an extended weekend. We had three children under the age of three and five adults. There was plenty of space for all to gather together in the open concept kitchen/living room area. The home was extremely clean and I am very picky about cleanliness! The children loved the playhouse and swingset! The playhouse was even furnished which was a nice surprise for our little granddaughters. The outside entertainment areas are very private from other neighbors and the home sits on a quiet dead end street which made for a peaceful getaway. It was very windy and cold during our stay so we weren't able to enjoy the beach however we spent time enjoying the shops downtown and eating at Clementines, which I would recommend. We also took the children to Harvest Moon in a neighboring town which featured a corn maze, hay rides, gourd slingshot, a large slide, and other miscellaneous activities for children. We hope to come back again when the weather is warmer so we can enjoy the beach as well! The home was very nicely decorated, clean and functional. We enjoyed cooking some food over the firepit (they supply the wood) and they even provided complimentary smores along with forks to roast the marshmallows. The owners were so helpful, they gave us a list of area things to do and places to eat which was so beneficial since we had not been to the area before. They were also very prompt with a response when I had a question. If you decide to stay here, you will be glad you did! I would definitely recommend the Henkel Bungalow!
We stayed here for a girl's weekend. The home is lovely, and the location is great. The homeowner was extremely easy to deal with. I would highly recommend it!
We invited my sister-in-law and her family to join us for the week. We had a total of 4 adults and 5 children. (2 girls both 15 and 3 boys ages 13, 10 and 7). I took a survey of my kids on their favorite part of the house...The Galaga game system, front porch swing, bonfire pit and basketball hoop were the top things mentioned. The blockus game was up there too, we had some serious tournaments with that after the sun set!
I'm a clean freak and I was soooo pleased with how clean the house was. It's obvious they have regular maintence including bug prevention outside. I can tell Laurel is a mom of 5 because she thought of everything. Supplies for s'mores, lots of liquid soap for all the sinks, (I had actually packed my own prepared for the nasty bars that most rentals have and was pleasantly surprised!) Clorox wipes, plenty of seating and practical dishes for my kids!
We cooked numerous meals at the house and even invited another family with little ones to join us for dinner. We had everything we needed and the grill is awesome.
We forgot ice packs for our cooler and those were even provided for us! The beach toys, chairs and wagon also were greatly appreciated. Thanks for providing a house that was well worth what we paid!! The kids are already asking when we'll be back.

This wonderful property was the perfect location for my family's weeklong vacation! We had 5 adults and 4 kids from 9 months to 4, we all couldn't have been happier with the beautiful accommodations and proximity to the lake, downtown South Haven and Saugatuck. The weather wasn't so cooperative but the house and yard offered many distractions for the little ones (playhouse was a huge hit!) and the couple of times we were able to go to the beach were magical. Lauren is an amazing host, very helpful and responsive - and the house is beautiful to boot! Fully stocked and so easy to live in....even with the large group! Loved, loved, loved the Henkel bungalow - we'll be back!
Webster Ave. is the best of both world's! Located within city limits (1/2 mile north of Dyckman bridge) for quick downtown access, and nestled on a quiet, cul-de-sac that is a 2 minute walk to Newcome Beach. Hear the waves of the lake while enjoying the outdoor amenities.
South Haven is 2 hours from Chicago, 3 hours from Detroit, 1 hour from South Bend.
