About the Property

6 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 16, close to our other listing 3540169

SOUTH HAVEN, MI - Charming home on a quiet, tree lined street, close to magnificent Lake Michigan & downtown. Perfect location for family vacations.
Need more room for your extra large get together? Our second home, listing 3540169, is a short walk away.

Sunny Side Retreat has 6 bedrooms, 3 full baths, fully equipped kitchen, and separate pantry with second refrigerator. Decorated in cottage style, with all the comforts of home, it is perfect for family reunions and gatherings. The dining room has a table that seats 6 and another table that seats 8, and another table can be brought in to seat everyone in the dining room. The bonus room on the second floor makes a great kid's hangout, while the formal living room is comfortable for T.V. and relaxing. Ample seating in both spaces with T.V., VCR, DVD, and cable. All the bedrooms have blackout curtains so guests don't have to wake up early and children find it easier to take naps.

Our guests adore the two large porches (one screened, one open with swing,) which are great for taking in the quiet tree lined street and kicking back. Guests have told us that they hate to leave!

The Kid's Park is just 3 blocks away with indoor bathrooms, water fountains, a huge wooden play structure, and baseball diamond. Steps to the magnificent, sandy south beach are immediately adjacent to the park. The quaint harbor town is just 4 blocks away.

The names of all persons staying at the property must be included in the completed Rental Agreement. Cribs to accommodate infants can be provided at no extra charge.

Manager info

About: This house compliments our other weekly rental at 620 Broadway.

Why South Haven, MI, USA:
South Haven has an awesome beach and is only a 2 hour drive from Chicago. Metro Detroit are only 2-3 hours away, so it is a great midwestern resort location. The harbor town is so close that we walk to everything once we are there and the City of South Haven has a great lineup of festivals and attractions happening all summer long. Golf is about the only thing we drive for and there are plenty of great courses right nearby.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The 2 porches are a magnet for people from the first coffee in the morning until late at night. Plus 2 bicycles and a basketball hoop in the driveway come with the rental!
