About Jennifer Alexander
As a family we've been going to South Haven for many summers to stay in a home for a week with friends. We love the feel of the small town and all the many shops, restaurants, bars, and events always going on. Walks along the beach in the morning and on the pier for the sunset are some of our favorite moments. We enjoyed it so much that we finally bought our own place in 2012 to share with others all the great times you can have in South Haven.

Why Jennifer Alexander chose South Haven
This property is in a fantastic location, just 2 blocks from South Beach and Kids Corner and definitely walking distance from downtown. We like the fact that we can just park our car and walk or bike wherever we want to go. The walk or bike ride to town or the beach is beautiful with mature trees and historic homes and everyone is so friendly.
What makes this House unique
We want the home to feel like vacation so we spruced it up with all the Beach memorabilia and painted it with bright fresh colors. Lots of windows provide plenty of sunshine and on many of the days we can turn off the air and just enjoy the fresh cool air off Lake Michigan. The private back yard is awesome for gathering around the fire pit at night and roasting marshmallows or just having a drink and sharing stories. The home is the perfect size for a few couples to be able to enjoy the week together and provides the right amount of space. Its also great for a couple of families or one large family as there is plenty of sleeping space and family space in the living room and dining area.

Jennifer was great to work with, very responsive and accommodated a special request from us. The house is in a good location. It only takes a few minutes to walk to the kids corner/ beach access and about 10-15 minutes to the main drag of South Haven. We enjoyed the bonfire pit out back. Our two year old loved sleeping up in the loft. My kids are too little for bike but there are plenty of bikes in the garage which I thought was cool. The house did meet our needs but it is older and could use a good Costco run. The towels and some of the linens could stand to be updated. I'm sure lots of stuff gets broken over time but there aren't many glasses, mugs, etc especially if you have a full house. If you're planning on doing much cooking, I would bring your own cookware. The nonstick surface on the pans is peeling off and they're just a bit weathered. We were left with only about 2 pumps of soap in each dispenser which we attempted to stretch out for 4 days. These are all minor issues. All in all we really enjoyed our time in South Haven.
Spacious, well kept.
Great location and quiet neighborhood
My family thoroughly enjoyed staying in South Haven and fell in love with the town. The location of the house was perfect and we were able to walk and bike to everything. My children especially loved the close beach and park. The hosts were readily available and quickly responded to any question that I had. The house was clean, nice private backyard and was well stocked with kitchen supplies as well as linens and towels.
Ideal Beach Vacation
Nice beach house. Great location.
Thank you for the review! We are so glad you enjoyed Lani Cottage and South Haven. You are welcome back anytime!
Well maintained and comfortable
Our family had a great time .
It was close to the beach and in walking distance to everything you needed.
We had fun watching sunsets and enjoying the outside fire pit.
Their was one issue with the water but it was taken care of quickly. Not a problem anyone could have predicted.
Very enjoyable week
Thank you for your review! We are so happy you enjoyed your stay and so glad that you notified us right away of the water issue! Welcome back anytime!
We had a lovely time at the Lani Cottage. The house is four blocks from the beach and kids corner which makes it a great location! The cottage was clean and suitable for our needs with two families. My only suggestion - the house needs a few more coffee cups. The owners were great to work with and had fast response times. We will definitely return in the future.
So glad you enjoyed your stay! We will absolutely get some more coffee cups...then tend to wander off over the course of the summer! You are welcome back anytime!
Watch the sunset at night on Lighthouse Pier. Get the best ice cream in southwest MI at Kilwin's downtown. Ride bikes along the tree lined streets. Kids can play at Kids Corner just two blocks away. Quaint shops downtown for shopping. Be sure to check out out the farmers market. Watch the pirate ship come in and out of the harbor every day.
