About Dan H

We are avid South Haven vacationers! Love the water and the beaches. Ice cream occasionally!

Dan H purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Dan H chose Southwest

Our family vacationed in South Haven for many years before purchasing the Maple Street Cottage. We loved the two-block walk to the beach or to South Haven's eclectic downtown shopping district. The neighborhood is quiet and almost always includes vacationing families enjoying the same benefits of this great location.

What makes this cottage unique

The number one comment in our rental book is 'the beach' which is only two blocks away. And if you love to watch boats enter and leave the harbor you're minutes away. There you can also fish for salmon, trout, and perch. From the harbor, you can rent boats and jet skis, charter a fishing boat or sunset cruise on a sailboat. Walk to restaurants, cafes, shops, and art galleries. The South Haven restaurants are excellent and you can enjoy 33 miles of biking on the Kal-Haven bike trail which is nearby.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Quaint cottage within short walking distance of beach and downtown

  • 5 of 5

Great seven-day stay with a family of four. The house is perfect for families with small children. The proximity to the beach is fantastic; you can get there within five minutes.

A great value for what you get. We can't wait to come back to South Haven.

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely family vacation at the Maple Street Cottage. It's perfect for a family with little ones (ours are 6 and 4). There was plenty of room for all of us to spread out, play board games, watch the Olympics(!), and relax. We cooked several meals at home ---- the kitchen was perfectly stocked ---- and walked into town (a quick 10-min walk) for several as well. The beach was an easy 5-min walk and the wonderful Kids Corner playground is just a few blocks away. The house is perfectly located. The only time we drove was to visit the Dunes and to go to the grocery store. The rest of the time, we walked or biked. The house was clean, the shower was really lovely, and the front porch was super relaxing (nice breezes from the Lake!). I already want to go back. I highly recommend this sweet little house to anyone, especially families with young kiddos.

Charming cottage in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This cute little cottage is nestled right between the beach and the downtown- you won't need to use your car at all. We have two young children and this was the perfect place for us. The back room can be closed off, making it perfect for nap time or early morning wake-ups without disturbing the rest of the house.

The owner was very helpful and quick to respond to all emails. His property manager stopped by to restock paper towels and toilet paper and told us to call him any time if we needed anything.

This was our first visit to South Haven and I'm so glad I chose this cottage four our stay. Thanks, Dan! We will be back.

Lovely old cottage. Perfect location

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Maple St Cottage. It's location is perfect, just blocks from beach and town, located in a quiet residential setting. I really enjoyed sitting out on the porch in the early a.m. with a cup of coffee or in the evening with a glass of wine.

There are two bedrooms plus a sleeping porch. Plenty of room to spread out.

The cottage, though old, has been completely renovated.

Only downside, just one bathroom.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week in this cottage. The cottage was clean, but small for our family. There were six of us, and sometimes we felt a little cramped; a family of four would fit perfectly. Only having one bathroom was a downfall for us with this property. The in-town manager was very nice and promptly returned a call to him we had placed. The location of this cottage was GREAT!!! It was awesome to walk to town and to the beach, as well as easily drive to the grocery store, etc.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review! The cottage will accommodate groups of six, but not EVERY group of six. Before accepting reservations for six (6) guests, we always contact guests to make sure the cottage is a good fit. In some cases, we point guests to other rentals that better suite their needs. In your case, your online reservation claimed only 2 adults and 0 children, so we didn't raise the issue with you. Still, we're glad you enjoyed South Haven and the location of the cottage.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time visiting South Haven and I absolutely loved it! This house was fantastic! Super cute and very clean. It was very accommodating for 5 women. This house is wonderfully situated on a nice street and is only minutes away from everything. Once we parked the car, we didn't have to get back in it for anything. We were able to walk everywhere. We walked to Julia's Cafe every morning for coffee. Enjoyed the Farmer's Market Saturday morning. The Italian food at Maria's was delicious as was the black bean burger at Clementine's. We enjoyed stopping in the local shops and our multiple trips to the beach. The sunsets were glorious. I'm already planning another trip back here for myself and my husband. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your house! It was a very relaxing getaway.
