Why Blue Water Vacation Rentals chose South Haven

The charming harbor town of South Haven has long been a favorite spot for vacationers for over 140 years because it is packed with wonderful restaurants, great shopping, fun museums and unique galleries. And you really feel like you’re on vacation here when you spend the day out on a boat fishing or just catching some rays. Great breezes make for excellent para-surfing or sailing and all of this is in addition to the miles of clean, white sugar sand beaches and the famous lingering sunsets. There is never an uneventful moment here unless you want one.

And the lake isn’t the only place to have fun. You can also play golf or tennis, go horseback riding, or ride bikes along the famous Kal-Haven trail. If you want to take it down a notch, take a tour of the local vineyards or spend a glorious afternoon being pampered at a local day spa. Located in the heart of Michigan wine country the rich soil is also perfect for abundant fruit harvests which makes for great farm markets and U pick farms.

The area offers amazing views of autumn foliage, terrific winter snowmobiling, sledding, skiing and colorful spring festivals there is always something fun to do every season of the year.

And because South Haven is so easy to get to from Chicago, Detroit, Indianapolis, Ohio and even St. Louis it is the perfect family vacation spot.

What makes this house unique

Harbor Club is a relaxed and inviting residential community featuring beautifully designed Arts & Crafts style homes, exciting vacation cottages and an exceptional private riverfront marina. The cottages are surrounded by spectacular native scenery, with community fire pits, and is located just two blocks from Lake Michigan beaches.

Nice! Well stocked and roomy!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in South Haven at this house. The pool was walking distance to the house and it fit everyone comfortably. We had nine adults and I think that is the max for adults to have comfortable sleep. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you can imagine. The decks were great and we used the fire pit each night we were there. Anthony was also a great host! We only had one hiccup and that was a broken dryer that took way too long to fix. We had no need to use it, so it might have been nice if they had waited until we were gone.

We had a great time at this lovely house.

  • 5 of 5

Right from day one when welocated this property on VRBO, it was a very pleasant experience for me. I initially had second thoughts as VRBO did not have an option to book from its website for this property. We were directed to Blue water vacation rental website where we had option to book or we can call their office to book it over phone. I thought i will try calling and if only i feel comfortable will book it. Mr Anthony responded to my voice mail and he was very straight forward and helpful in answering all my questions. I felt confident about the place and I booked it over phone. He promptly sent all related documents and info sheets . We had a late check in( really late at 12:30 AM !!!!) and he was available on the phone when we called him at 11:40 !!! i can't believe it !!! thanks Anthony. He switched on the lights for us before we arrived and the house was bang good when we entered. It was exactly as shown in the pictures and no mis representation. Anthony even told us what is not available at the booking time itself so we went prepared with those stuffs( hair dryer, washing liquid etc). The kitchen was fully loaded and had all types of utensils. Our group cooked on all the three days and stayed inside for most part of the three days that we spent there. We were four families and all of us had very good time at the house. One of our boy's toys needed a battery replacement . We had the battery but no star driver to open the battery case. I called Anthony if he can help and within 10 minutes he was in the house with his tool kit. Man , you are great and thanks for all your help which made our stay very pleasant. Probably, the only major issue we faced is hot water for bath. We had to give atleast 30 minutes gap between baths. Since we did not have any plans outside , we were able to manage but if you have a schedule, then you need to start getting ready atleast 4 or 5 hrs earlier !!! Another issue is the running water sound from bath pipes in the upper level rooms. I was managable though and none of these 2 issues mattered much due to overall great experience. One more nice things is , the fourth bedroom(trundle beds) which we thought might more be like a kids room was infact able to sleep 4 adults. so , this place is really true to what it says on the website. Price was very reasonable and infact Anthony was good enough to give us a 2 hr late checkout. To summarise, we all enjoyed and i would again visit this place if there is an opportunity.

Wonderful House, had a great stay

  • 5 of 5

I had a great little getaway at this house. South Haven is a great little town, we only came for 3 nights in January but loved it. The weather was cold and snowy but we were able to do a little sledding on the hill by the house. I will be booking this house again.

Close to everything and yet private for relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was more than we had hoped for, very spacious and fit our group of 12 without feeling crowded. All 3 couples had there own room and the kids really enjoyed the trundle beds. I really liked that there are bathrooms on every floor (especially the Master) The master suite was where me and my wife stayed and it was incredible, a fireplace (we didn't need to use it), bathroom (with a walk-in 2 person shower), and balcony to enjoy the sunrises. The kitchen is big and open and had all the pots and pans my wife needed. The finished basement was great with 2 couches and a bedroom with a bathroom. The cottage was very clean and maintained. The host/property manager was very friendly and helpful when we had questions about the area. The property was the perfect location for us. We loved that it was close to downtown, and yet private when we wanted to relax. There was a big yard next to the house for the kids to play soccer and run around. We absolutely loved the firepit behind the house. We spent most of our time at the pool and the beach. I would recommend the management company and the cottage to anyone looking for a great place to stay in South Haven.

As beatiful and inviting as the pictures!!

  • 5 of 5

As beautiful and inviting as the pictures!! We had a group of 12 women stay at the Daydreamer and absolutely loved it! The house was fully equipped with any kitchen supplies you could think of, beach towels, board games, etc.! There was a great/helpful binder of all local attractions, restaurants and amenities, and the host stopped by shortly after check in to ensure we were happy with the place and to answer any questions. The house was a 2 minute drive to the beach, 5 minutes to downtown, and close to grocery stores (Meijer and Walmart). Pictures of the Daydreamer were completely accurate and all the girls agreed that we would love to make this a yearly trip and would prefer to stay at the Daydreamer!
