We have rented this adorable cottage for the last 5 years for a family girls getaway week, ages 1-80! We love the location, so easy to walk to the beach or downtown restaurants and shopping. The large sun deck and fenced in yard are a big plus, great hangout spot for morning coffee or drinks at night and the little ones have a place to play. We came back this year for Memorial Day weekend and noticed several improvements, the deck and fence have been redone and the kitchen has new appliances. The rooms looked fresh and bright with a new coat of paint. The house has always been clean for us, we appreciate not having to bring linens and don't mind washing them before we leave. The owner has been responsive to questions and wants to make sure we have a great stay. Memories are made in South Haven, we'll be back for sure!

Update From The Owner 5/2015

  • 4 of 5

We appreciate your feedback. We live several hours away so its nice to hear from our visitors. The home now has cable and wifi. The bikes that were taken have now been replaced. To the renter who says they always bring cleaning supplies on vacation, that seems odd to me but you must like things really clean. We are sorry for any disappointment or inconvenience these items may have caused during your stay. Have an awesome summer.

South Haven Beach Home

  • 4 of 5

We had a nice stay in South Haven in July 2014! This home is 4 1/2 blocks to the beach, close to Kid's Corner park, and walking distance to town (5 blocks or so). It has a very nice deck and fenced back yard.

As previously mentioned, it is not the cleanest place you will find. We always bring cleaning supplies with us, but there are cobwebs and signs of neglect. It seems as though the cleaning fee goes towards someone cleaning bathrooms, dusting, and sweeping floors. It's not terrible, though. The furniture is a bit worn, which shows the popularity of this rental. The owner is very nice and available when you call.

As the previous review mentioned, there are no bikes, and the wagon had a large crack in it, so we didn't chance it. We also brought our own sheets and just changed the beds when we arrived, then changed them back when we left. This saved washing time (thanks to the previous reviewer!). It was nice to have the laundry facilities available, too! You can't beat the South Haven beaches - just beautiful! We love this town!

Nice place, great week in South Haven

  • 4 of 5

Rented this house from owner via this website and paid via check and paypal.

Overall, nice place and nice owner. Would recommend this to others.

Pro's:

- House was nicely modernized (windows, floors, bathrooms, furniture, deck, etc)

- Pretty close to beach & kids corner park (4 1/2 blocks to blue stairs)

- Large deck and back yard

- Wagon for hauling beach gear

- cable TV and DVD

Con's:

- 4 1/2 blocks from beach (this is either a pro or con depending on age of your kids and amount of gear you take to beach) for us we felt it was too long a walk with the little ones and beach gear.

- house wasn't filthy, but wasn't super clean either

- contacting the owner was always a struggle. must be a busy guy... although he's very nice and accomodating. our promised week ended up being double-booked however he ended up getting us another full week.

- had to launder bed sheets upon departure. (we would have liked to depart early morning but had to wait on laundry to wash and dry)

- no adult bikes per description. owner said they'd been stolen due to negligence of previous renters

We stayed her the summer of 2011

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful and nicely decorated. Our children enjoyed the back yard and we had some great barbecues on the large deck. The house was comfortable and it was great to have 2 bathrooms. The walk to the beach was about 4 blocks. We had a great time. The only thing that was missing is the ability to watch TV. The TV can only be used for DVDs. It would have been nice to watch the news or some other TV programs in the evening when the kids were alseep. A great vacation!
