My husband, 3-month year old daughter and dog enjoyed our stay at this property. The house was extremely clean and the perfect size for us. It is walking distance to the downtown area and has a relaxing back yard. The owner provided us with everything that we would need for a weekend getaway. Thank you!

Owner response: Thank you for choosing our home. A fun weekend in South Haven in the Winter is the Ice Breakers Weekend February 1, 2014. There is a Chili contest and everyone walks from restaurant to restaurant tasting and voting on the Chili. Ice carving in front of stores. The skating outside at the rink.
Great home, great vacation

The home was impeccably cleaned, fully furnished and stocked with all sorts of utensils and helpful items you wouldn't think of until you need it. Walking distance to downtown and the beach (although the beach is a far walk), across the street from a late-night convenience store and dollar store. Completely accurate description and pictures, all surprises here were positive, including communication with the owner. Only negative comment is that the distance to downtown and beach might be a little difficult for some visitors to walk, but you can't beat the value this home offers. Highly recommended!

This was a first trip for us to South Haven and we found this house to have all that we needed. It is in a relatively good location as far as the ability to walk to downtown South Haven. Just a few blocks. If you have children, the back yard is a convenient play place, but the house is located on a fairly busy highway. We found the house to be as advertised and very clean with all the necessary supplies for cooking, doing laundry, and going to the beach. The owner was easy to work with and very quick to reply to questions we had. Enjoyed our stay.

Owner response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. South Haven has started the Phoenix Street improvement project last week. Other streets are being reviewed including ours, and safety is a consideration. 60,000 people were expected to attend the Blueberry Festival this year. South Haven is great the rest of the year, and it is much quieter as we have just around 5,000 in the City.
House was very clean and well decorated. Everything was as stated or better than described online. It was perfect.

Great House! Worked perfect for our family.
Great House! Worked perfect for our family.
My family of 5 stayed here in July and we had a wonderful time. We were impressed by the cleanliness and newness of the house. The kids stayed upstairs and each had their own place to sleep with the pull-out bed, full queen, and window seat - which was perfect for our 3 year old. The downstairs bed was very comfortable. I'm 7 months pregnant and picky!!! Also there is a TV upstairs and down, which was not mentioned in the listing but made our stay more comfortable since the kids could watch TV upstairs at night and we could be down. The kitchen had everything needed for cooking and the house seemed newly remodeled and in great condition. There were extras we weren't planning on, including shampoo and conditioner in the shower and laundry detergent in the basement. The yard was great for our kids to play in when we weren't at the beach and they needed some time out of the house. The beach was a short few blocks drive away. Patti made parking recommendations, that were very helpful although we rotated what part of the beach we went to each day. Had I not been pregnant we probably would have walked to the downtown area at least a couple of times since we enjoy walking in the evening. Patti was easy to work with and quick to respond when we had questions. I highly recommend this house. I really feel like the owner has gone above and beyond to make the house very comfortable for a vacation rental. Thanks Patti!

Owner response: Your Family was great. Hope the kids enjoyed the backyard and you had fun at the beach. Thank you for your rental.
Well appointed property close to town services and beach. The cooling system coped well with some extreme heat. The outdoor space was attractive at ground and 2nd level (maybe some more comfortable furniture on the upper deck would help) and great to share with rabbits, squirrels and birds. A great base for self-catering in what we thought was the best overall resort in the area (big enough to get choice, and blue collar enough to get life).

About the owner: My husband and I live nearby and enjoy walking our dog to the beach and along the river almost daily to take in the sunset. On weekends, we love to walk to town for dinner.
Why the Owner Chose South Haven:
South Haven is a great town and we are lucky to live in a place where people love to come spend their vacation. This quaint town is becoming a year round destination offering summer fun and winter sports in addition to home town shopping and restaurants.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home has refinished oak floors and is cozy and sunny. Backyard is serene either on the patio or the 2nd floor deck. Unwind under the 90 year old tree in the backyard after an active day. Blocks from the beach and downtown. This is a great home base to enjoy the town or stay at home and take advantage of the kitchen or barbeque to unwind with your group.
