"Amanda's house was a perfect home away from home for our trip to Lake Michigan. The owners have thought of EVERYTHING to make your stay relaxing and comfortable as home. The 4 bedroom house is clean, full of modern amenities, nicely decorated, and definitely spacious enough for 10-12 people for multiple families with small children and/or teenagers. Master bedroom on first floor and 3 large bedrooms upstairs, 3 bathrooms, and large modern kitchen with all amenities, plenty of dish and cookware. The dining area is separate and quite large also. The house is very clean and was not missing anything we needed...from kitchen utensils to Kuerig to dishwasher and disposal to (plenty of) big fluffy towels, plenty of linens, new washer and dryer, hair dyers, wi-fi, flat screen TVs, office area, covered porch, backyard, garage, even a basement with extra furniture if you have a huge group). The owners have even supplied books, games, bikes, wagons, first aid supplies and a smores kit. Our children LOVED their room with 2 sets of bunkbeds and their own TV for DVD watching. The backyard is a great private (fenced in) quiet get away with a beautiful firepit, table with umbrella, and gas grill. The neighborhood is close enough to walk to the beach (3 blocks) and close enough to the great Kids Korner playground. The neighborhood was very quiet and quaint....great for morning or evening strolls to the beach and town. We LOVED South Haven for quaintness of the town, restaurants, shops, the beach (sand is amazing). South Haven is the perfect location for daily excursions too....to St Joseph (Carousel and beach playground), Air Zoo in Kalamazoo, and Saugatuck (Dune Rides were amazing). Lots to do around even on rainy days. All trips were less than an 40 minutes away. Highly recommend this for a fun, easy beach vacation with all the comforts of home. There are major grocery stores (Meijer and WalMart) within 5 minutes drive. There are plenty of unique restaurants and little shops for browsing and ice cream and toy shopping outings (within walking distance). The owners were available and very responsive to questions that we had before and after our stay. You will not be disappointed in Amanda's House if you are looking for all the comforts of home and fun in South Haven."
