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!!
Fantastic week, awesome home, great owners!
The bungalow was impeccably clean. It had everything possible available to a large family. Have stayed at many places in SouthHaven and further up Michigan's coast, and this place is my favorite. It is nestled in the trees with a front & back yard, at a quiet, dead-end street. The closest public bleach access is a short walk away, but is quite small. There are somewhat larger public beaches within a 2 minute drive via car, and of course the very larger public beach is just a bit further by car. This would be the only negative I would consider;that one needs to pack things for the beach in a car to be assured of a great space of a beach on Lake Michigan, but then the price would be much higher! For our family from ages 4 to 75 years, this place met everyone's needs and much more.
The Henkel bungalow is a wonderful place to stay. The surroundings are peaceful and beautiful with the trees and quiet end street. The house with its open floor plan and set up is just right for a family vacation. Laurel Henkel is very accommodating and pleasant to work with.
The Henkel Bungalow was the ideal location for a short getaway for my family. It was located on a very quiet street, and the house was immaculate. It provided plenty of space, amenities, and extras. The outdoor firepit was my family's favorite part of the home, in addition to the open-concept living-kitchen area so we could enjoy each other's company.
Our host provided a ton of great tips and insightful information about South Haven and surrounding areas. The beach is within walking distance, and my kids loved playing in the sand and water.
We'll definitely book again, and soon! If you want a quiet getaway in South Haven, this is the place you should book! If I could give it 100 stars, I would!
Property is well maintained and the owner provided great service and was always available for information and questions.
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!
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.
