South Haven house description
This newer, charming Carriage House provides the perfect location: just 2 blocks from Kids' Corner Park and 3 blocks from South Beach. Everything is within walking distance of this property!
This home away from home has an open layout with vaulted ceilings and lots of windows. The property is beautifully landscaped with mature trees and rhododendrons. You can relax outside on the tree-top deck just off the living room or on the shaded flagstone patio below.
You can leave your car parked in the secure garage and forget about it. Enjoy walking downtown to restaurants, shopping and movie theaters - just 5-6 blocks away. After dinner, take a stroll on the pier as you watch the sunset on beautiful Lake Michigan. Nearby Kal Haven Trail also provides an excellent place for bike riding.
Each of the 3 bedrooms includes a queen sized bed, and the living room has a futon. There is also a twin cot suitable for a child. Free wifi, DVD player and use of onsite washer and dryer are included, and there is no cleaning fee. We provide 6 beach chairs, sand toys, a medium size cooler, and a sturdy wagon to take everything to the beach.
The house rents Sat - Sat for $1700 per week. No cleaning fee.

Perfect Location and Great Accommodations
Perfect Location and Great Accommodations
We really enjoyed our time in this house. The location is excellent. We have a five year old son that loves the kids park. It's a short walk to the kids park (which we did several times a day) and the beach just past the park is nice and quiet. You are still close enough to the main street to walk to get donuts, ice cream, or Su Casa and Clementines. We visit South Haven several times a year and will certainly be going back to this property if spots are available. The house is nicely appointed with everything you would ever need. Coffee maker, cable tv, towels, and a two car garage (for those that like to go to Gingerman raceway). As you can see in the pictures this is a newer South Haven property with lots of privacy and a nice garden. It's a shame we found this so late in the 2012 season.

Great family getaway; close to everything!
Great family getaway; close to everything!
I may run out of room with all of the good things I have to say about our stay, but I'll try! First, the owners are friendly, honest and responsive and obviously take pride in their rental home. Our family of 6, 4 of whom are teenagers, spent a week here when a last minute cancellation at this beautiful home made it possible for us to make the trip. Being a larger family, we were concerned about all of us sleeping comfortably, but our concerns were quickly put to rest. The house is spacious (more than appears in the photos), very comfortable, is immaculately clean with just about everything you need for a family vacation. The decor is modern but very homey. The fully stocked kitchen and gas grill made eating in a breeze, although the choices of dining in South Haven are numerous -- and very good! The back deck was perfect for hanging out in the morning and evenings. Access to South Beach was right at the end of our street, just 3 blocks away. We even let our kids walk down on their own. The beach is very clean, the water is clear, and although it is a public beach, it wasn't too crowded. There was always plenty of room to pitch our umbrella and beach towels (bring your own). Just down the beach is the Pier with concession stand if you need a quick bite to eat or a great cup of lemonade. For things to do off the beach, downtown South Haven is so charming with lots of shopping and dining options. We ended most of our days in town with a short walk down to the pier to watch the sunset. Great restaurants to try: Joe's Bar and Grill (awesome "bar" food), Maria's (Italian) and of course, Clementine's (worth the wait, and you will!). Ice cream shops everywhere. We took a couple of short day trips to Holland and Saugatuck/Douglas. Both are a quick drive up 196 and provide many activities/shopping/dining. Our kids (and us older kids) loved the shopping and restaurants in Saugatuck. Another five minutes took us to the dune rides, which we highly recommend. Back into Saugatuck for a sunset cruise on the Star of Saugatuck rounded out the evening nicely. Being able to take life at a much more relaxed pace was a welcome treat for us this summer. We didn't want to leave! Many wonderful memories were made here and we have already started making plans to return next summer. Thank you, Teresa, for the opportunity to experience South Haven at it's best!

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We love to travel and we have visited South Haven often. We just purchased this house last year, and we are excited to offer this perfect getaway so other vacationers can enjoy everything South Haven has to offer!
Why the Owner Chose South Haven:
Most important: location! We love the idea of leaving the car parked and walking everywhere. The house is also less than 10 yrs old, and is in excellent condition.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the setting of the Carriage House. When you walk upstairs to the living area, you will feel like you're in a tree house. You'll be close to everything, but you're also in a peaceful setting surrounded by lush vegetation.
