This was our very first family vacation and it was perfect! It was kid friendly, comfy, and decorated adorably! So many amazing touches from the tennis rackets and basketball in the back, to the AMPLE seating inside and the 3 outside areas to sit, to the games, movies, and books we found inside! The kitchen had a nice stock of utensils and things to make our stay easier and cheaper because we were able to bring food and cook! And, even 2 grills and a fire pit outside! It was really nice to have everything thought about for us. The pool and tennis courts are just steps away. And, the beach and downtown South Haven were so close. Only a 30 minute drive to both St. Joe's and Holland for little day trips. So fun! Thanks so much for thinking of everything and making our say to easy! Can't wait to go back!

South Haven, MI Octagon All Season getaway with pool & fireplace

I spent 2 weeks at the octagon house. It was a great place for so many reasons. It had colorful and cute decoration, was spacious and had comfortable sleeping arrangements. My grandchildren loved the bunk beds and the fact that they had their own DVD in the lower bunk. The front patio was excellent for entertaining and the back porch was wonderful for morning coffee and viewing visiting deer in the back yard. The house was surrounded by grass for running and playing games and the wonderful pool was so convenient with beautiful beaches just a few minutes away. All those who got to share this unique house with me, enjoyed the experience and look forward to a future visit.

Perfect little spot for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little spot for a family getaway. The octagon was a great layout for your family. It had all of the items needed to make the stay comfortable. The location was perfect for all the places that we needed to go. Little bonuses like places have a fire on the porch and seasonal pool passes were great

  • 4 of 5

I was so pleasantly surprised when I walked in the front door! It was absolutely perfect. Looking at the photos did not do it justice. Even though there were places closer to downtown, I didn’t mind because I felt right at home. It was quiet, private, cozy, unique and hassle free! It was just me and my 8 year old. We loved the clean warm pool! It was great to swim in September! It was a very memorable 1st time to South Haven. I love the history of the town, and how old the house is. I would like to know more about it, maybe a historical write up on the house could be posted somewhere. The only things I could suggest is directions for the fireplace. I didnt know that it wasn’t real wood, and tried to light it! And a wicker basket for dirty wet towels. Thank you for your hospitality. It was way better than any hotel! I definitely want to bring her back next summer to stay there again, if not sooner.

Charming Rental-Great Location

  • 5 of 5

It felt like you were out in the country but 5 minutes to downtown South haven or the beach. A large deck area that you can sit and have morning coffee or relax at night with the Chimenea. Also a nice pool if you don't want to go to the beach.

A very comfortable unit to stay with a spacious floor plan. Lot's of amenities- Cable Tv, Washer-dryer and everything you might need.

Schönes Haus am See

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren sehr zufrieden mit der Ferienwohnung. Der außergewöhnliche Schnitt verleiht dem Erdgeschoss einen besonderen Charme. Es ist nicht weit zu den Stränden von South Haven und der 50 Meter entfernte Pool ist ideal für Kinder und eine kurze Runde am Morgen. Insgesamt auf jeden Fall weiterzuempfehlen auch wegen der unkomplizierten Abwicklung.

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful family getaway and spent a full week staying in this rental. It was an excellent fit for our family of four and it had everything we needed. The kids loved the proximity of the pool and I liked my morning coffee out of the deck. The kids also thought it was super special to have bunk beds. We were happy with the location since we took day trips and it was near major roads. It is a downstairs unit so if there are rambunctious guests above, you will hear it. We encountered it a couple of evenings during our stay but it wouldn’t deter us from staying again. Folks respected the 10pm quiet time close enough. We also contact the owner of our unit and they were very responsive. We have already recommended this comfortable property to others!
