Late Summer Getaway
Late Summer Getaway
Last minute getaway was a big success! House was easy to find and very convenient to all the action we could want. Beds were very comfortable and the house had everything we needed. We forgot some items and were very happy to see the house had them in the cupboard. We had a pleasant surprise when we saw a sauna tucked in a small room in the back of the house! Being Finnish in heritage this was a wonderful plus! Everything was provided to give us a relaxing time away. Pleasant and quiet neighborhood. Would consider this home in the future in a heartbeat! Owner was so helpful and responded to inquiries quickly.

Owner was easy to work with and responsive to email questions. Home was accurately described and perfect for our family of six adults and two young (one year old and 5 months old) children. Location of home was an easy walk to the beach and downtown. Patio off the kitchen was great! All appliances and AC worked fine, although AC was a bit noisy. Upon check-in it was obvious floors were swept, beds changed, towels in the dryer,etc. However, house needs a thorough cleaning through out. We battled ants on the kitchen counters until we bug sprayed kitchen window frame/ledge outside and placed fresh ant traps on back of counter. Overall we had a great family week together.

Returning again this summer
Sorry for the late review but better late than never. I stayed at this home last summer and enjoyed it so much I am returning to lease it out for a year starting the middle of August. Location excellent, three blocks from Lake Michigan(to watch the sunsets) and two blocks from downtown South Haven(great shopping, activities and eateries). The house was clean and better than I expected, the outside welcoming on summer days and nights, relaxing. Two bathrooms, one with a clawtub and the other a jacuzzi with a sauna! Feels like home. The owner was very responsive and never had any issues the two weeks I stayed. Looking forward to my upcoming year there.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this home. The outdoor space was wonderful for our children and pet. The location is perfect for a walk to South Beach or town.

Great Location - Plenty of Room

The location of this home was perfect to allow for walking to beach and town. It worked out well for my family which includes teenagers and young adults and our dog. The house also was clean and allow for us to be together, but also spaces to get away - such as to the two patio spaces. We all loved the outdoor shower. Also, for the 4th of July the house is located on the parade route so this was a big plus for us to just set up chairs outside the front door. The owner was very responsive to our needs. The listing says it sleeps 8-10. 8 I agreed with, 10 not sure how this number would be accommodated without some folks sleeping on the floor or on air mattresses. Plenty of room - just not enough beds for 10 adult sized people.
