Great 5 Days
the house was very nice. we read all the reviews, and they were very accurate.
we had 5 adults, and 2 small children. our original plan was to have 3 dogs also, which she welcomed, but we did not bring.
trying not to be repetitive with the other review, here it goes.
tv’s need updating and the cable is very basic. we weren't there to watch tv, but we did have some interest in football and the cubs. we had no problem watching what wasn't available on cable because the wifi allowed us watch on our iPads and phones.
the closest beach was a little over 2 blocks. not much of a problem, but i am 70 and we had an exceptionally hot week. the beach front was small. but it was in the neighborhood. it was in-between 2 private beach fronts. we went there early before it got too hot, so we were the only ones there. it was almost like our own private beach.
the house was in perfect condition when we got there at noon. and the electronic lock allowed us instant access. everything we needed was there, including 2 trays of ice cubes already made. enough dishes, glasses, and utensils for everyone. neighborhood was nice, quiet, and nice little porch area to sit out at night. the house was big enough for all our activities, and would have been more than adequate if we would have had to stay in if there had been any weather problems. the grill in the back yard was everything we needed for grilling and drinking outside at the house.
we have been to south haven before, but we have mostly gone to saugatuck. so we spent some time there, taking the nice drive up the blue star highway. in south haven, we had some great
light food and drinks, and pleasant conversation at the black river tavern. also had a great dinner a little out of town at the hawk’s nest at the golf course. e.
minor problem was the downstairs where the kids were sleeping. because of the record breaking heat, the air was on most of the time. we didn't know how to control the temperate downstairs, so it got a little cool at night.
all in all it was a great stay. no rush to check out. sheila was in contact with us from the initial booking to the end of our trip. we took a nice scenic long way back to illinois.
the reviews were accurate, and we got exactly what we were looking for, and expecting. i would highly recommend a stay here.
Thank you for your nice review...
The TV will be updated for the 2018 season with a Smart TV.
I appreciate all the feedback...
Thank you again...Sheila
Well maintained, clean and functional. In a residential neighborhood but easy to walk to town.
Sheila's cottage worked very well for us- in a quiet residential neighborhood but within walking distance to the town and beach. A very clean home with all the kitchen and bath essentials to make for a comfortable stay. Being able to bring our pets along was an added bonus. We also appreciated the follow up from Sheila to make sure we were able to access the house (the electronic key pad was fantastic!). The TV channels are limited, but we weren't in SH to watch TV and the internet connection was excellent. A good stay!
Very Nice House
Very nice house/property!!!!
Needs to update TV's....HD needed and add basic cable stations....ESPN...etc
This home was perfect for us!
This home was so clean, comfortable, well stocked, and a perfect way to spend a week with our children and grandchildren. You could easily walk to the beaches, gorgeous park, and into the main part of town. We enjoyed many sunsets and even sitting on the porch in the cute neighborhood. Sheila and Paul, our hosts, took great care of all of our needs. I would highly recommend this home and we will be back again!
We loved this cottage!
I could just say we plan on a stay in Sheila's Cottage next summer and leave it at that! It was so charming and close to the beach that it was a quick walk with 3 toddlers in tow. The home was immaculate and equipped with everything we needed. We enjoyed grilling out while the kids played in the back yard. The cottage had plenty of room for my husband and me and our 2 "kids" and their families to spread out. The owners were very helpful and responded immediately to my questions. Definitely recommend staying at Sheila's Cottage (except the week we want it:)
Lovely little home away from home!
My family of five really enjoyed our stay at Shiela's English Cottage. The house is in a very nice neighborhood within walking distance of the beach and even a little shop that had ice cream too! Plenty of room for us - we didn't even go downstairs except to do the laundry. Very clean, nicely decorated, comfortable - just what we were looking for! Definitely recommend staying here while in South Haven.
