About The Owner

Greg and I bought this home in 1999 when it was new construction. Greg grew up in beautiful Michigan and wanted to have a place there for our four children to enjoy. We love all that Southwest Michigan offers; beach, dunes, golf, great restaurants, shopping and relaxing. It is a great place to go to get away from everyday life.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

Why The Owner chose Southwest

We bought in this location because South Haven is so beautiful with so much to do for the entire family.

What makes this house unique

When we are in South Haven we love to go to the beach or golf. We love grilling out and eating on the screened in porch. We like to go to one of the many farmers markets and get fresh fruits and vegetables. We love going on walks and sitting around the bonfire at night toasting marshmallows.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed with our family and had a great time. Home is super comfortable and great location! Enjoyed using the firepit and screened porch. Kitchen was well stocked. Loved that we were in a beautiful wooded area and out of the busy downtown. Close to get to South Haven and Saugatuck. Went blueberry picking, beach and golf.

Loved it!!!

  • 4 of 5

Would have been 5 Stars but the private Glen Shores beach is gone (No fault of the homeowners-- Lake Michigan's high waters are the cause.) and the walk to that beach is a little longer than I would have liked. Otherwise it was the perfect spot for a multi generational family vacation. Located in a highly wooded area about halfway between South Haven and Saugatuck--so away from the more crowded areas and yet easy to get to shopping and restaurants. Very clean, lots and lots of towels--beach and bath, delightful screened in porch--perfect for viewing deer, fox, wild turkey, ground hog and of course the frogs that live in the pond. (The little ones loved it!) Lots of room to run and plenty of beds to sleep in when you are worn out at the end of the day. We wanted to take home the king sized bed comfy! Baths appear to be recently remodeled. Gas grill for bbqs, fire pit for late night ghost stories and sa'mores. The 8 of us--ages 68 to 1 1/2 were very happy with this home! Plenty of room for all, clean, comfy and extremely well stocked--from garbage bags to paper towels to kleenex --and a washer and dryer!!! Would definitely stay here again.

Great home away from it all

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly what our family was looking for - a quiet, secluded house within a short walk/drive from the beach. In fact, the pictures don't do this house justice. We were pleasantly surprised when we walked in a saw how much space we had for both of our families (four adults, four kids). The screened porch was a bonus - we ate every meal out there. And the fire pit was perfect for s'mores and some relaxing when the kids went to bed.

Then owners provided so many great amenities - a fully stocked kitchen, washer/dryer, games for the kids, beach chairs/umbrella, and the list goes on. Unlike the previous house we rented, we didn't feel like we constantly had to walk around the house with shoes on . . . sand was never tracked into the main living part of the house because there was a hose outside that everyone got sprayed with when we returned from the beach.

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by two deer in the backyard, and they also showed up to tell us goodbye on our last night - it was a sure sign that we had picked the right property for our vacation. Thanks for the hospitality!

One word...PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with another family over the Fourth of July and loved every bit of this place. We had more than enough room and found ourselves very comfortable. The fact that it is set back into the woods on a quiet cul-de-sac in the back of a semi private community sets the tone for a very relaxing getaway. We spent most our nights sitting around the awesome fire pit and enjoyed the serene atmosphere. The inside of the house has a well opened floor plan that allowed us to flow well and the kitchen was big and inviting for all of those fun meals we prepared and ate together. The private beach was nice to go down to and enjoy without all of the clutter of a lot of people and is only a nice walk from the house. Although the location is a ten minute drive away from Downtown South Haven it is easy to get to and well worth it, to come home to a quite "getaway" from our getaway. Thank you for providing a great place for families to enjoy to make countless memories that will last forever.

Great week in South Haven!

  • 5 of 5

The house is well maintained, roomy and very clean. We loved being able to drive right down to the beach (we rode our bikes from the house) or walk down the steps. We kayaked and spent most of our time on the beach during the day. We loved the location - we had dinner in Fennville, South Haven and Saugatuck. The house was nicely equipped with everything you might need - beach towels, utensils, Bose dock, DirecTV and wireless internet service. We'll definitely try to book again next year!!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and really enjoyed the home in South Haven. It is in a quiet and secluded area but close to town and a short walk to the beach. My children and grandchildren enjoyed the beach during the day and the fire pit at night. We were pleasantly surprised at the sand toys and beach chairs available. Thank you for such a wonder place.
