About The Owner

My wife and I always dreamed of owning a home in South Haven and in 2007 we found the perfect house for our family. The home is over 100 years old and has many historic features. However, it has been completely gutted and rehabbed so it has the feel of a brand new house. We take tremendous pride in making the house as beautiful as possible both inside and out and you will discover that our home is not your typical vacation rental. I hope that you will bring your family to our home and create many wonderful memories as we do each time we visit South Haven.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007

Why The Owner chose South Haven

The entire west coast of Michigan offers many excellent small towns. However, South Haven has more to offer in terms of restaurants, bars, shopping, etc. Our home is close to the ammenities of downtown plus the beach so it is a perfect fit for us.

What makes this cottage unique

There is nothing more relaxing than sitting on the second level of the back deck and watching the boats on the nearby Black River. Also, the close proximaty to the beach and downtown allows you to leave your car in the driveway for the entire vacation.

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

It was such a cute home! We were all comfortable and it was so close to the stores, and a nice scenic walk to the water! Parking was a little tight but we had a big truck and jeep and we made it work. Hope to be able to come back!

Beautiful, convenient, and has everything you need.

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed. We did not have to drive any where all weekend. It is close to downtown and the beach. I loved the kitchen, enough room for everyone to be in the kitchen and not be on top of each other. The owner was awesome to deal with.

We will definitely see if they have any weekends available for next year.

Amazing Clean Place and Location

  • 5 of 5

We could not believe how nice this house. The pictures do not do justice. The rooms are much bigger than we thought. It was spotless and felt so clean. The back deck was our favorite part, as we would grill out and eat supper on the nice table. Also cute little yard that we put a blow up kids pool in. We loved the set up of the house, more than enough room. Kitchen was amazing and gorgeous. We spent a lot of time in there cooking and just hanging out. Also if you have children they have plenty of kids toys, which my little one loved. They also have a very nice pack n play that my niece was able to use and they didn't have to bring with them. The location was perfect. We walked to the beach a few times and also into town. The balcony on the second floor was so nice to sit out and relax. We met the one neighbors on the corner house and they were beyond friendly, and actually from Columbus where I live. This house is located on a dead end street so absolutely no traffic which is nice when you have little ones. We are already looking into staying a week for next year. :)

Simply South Haven Simply Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Great location and very clean, well-maintained home. Just about everything you could ever possibly need for cooking is available in the well-stocked kitchen. Very comfortable back porch is great for eating or just relaxing on the porch swing overlooking the adorable back yard. This home is perfect for anyone's vacation but we were pleasantly surprised by all the toys, wagon, Pack ‘n Play, and other amenities that worked especially well for our family with a couple of small children.

Owners were immediately responsive to any issues that came up and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay. Also, easy walking distance to downtown and the beach is a HUGE plus!

We had a wonderful family vacation and would definitely return to Simply South Haven.
