Great location and wonderful vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place to stay with 2 families with kids in South Haven. Just 2 blocks from the beach, with posh hot tub, fully stocked kitchen, fantastic bunk room, and 3 other bedrooms---absolutely perfect! Also spacious deck with gas grill as well as front porch. Great for families: lots of games, children's books and a basketball hoop too! I can't imagine a better place to stay. We had a blast!

Great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

My high school girlfriends and I recently spent a few days in South Haven to celebrate turning 60 this year. We chose to stay at the Gold family beach house on Oak Street because it offers a lot of fun amenities like a fire pit and hot tub, and it's close to one of the smaller, more private beaches, as well as being close enough to town to walk or bike. We also enjoyed the koi pond and dining on the patio. We had such a great time that my family of nine will be returning for a week in the summer. The kids will love the basketball hoop and everything else I just mentioned. It's a great place for fun-loving people of any age!

Perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Oak Street house was perfect for our family! It was very clean, decorated nicely and had way more amenities than most rentals. We grilled on the deck most nights and ended each night with a fire and smores. The kids loved all the toys and games and the quick walk to the beach. I've rented a lot of places on VRBO and this was definitely one of the best. The family is already talking about wanting to go back next year.

Beautiful Home

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at this house was very enjoyable. The house is great. Easy walk to the beach, very cute yard with basketball hoop and a fire pit complete with s'more sticks. Even an island game from one of my favorite restaurants. This is a great house to reconnect with family. We had a couple of issues durning our stay but the owner was quick to resolve them.
