About Thaiphi Ngo

I am a South Haven native and my husband is from SW Michigan, but we are currently residing in SE Michigan. My family has been in South Haven since I was very little, our family is well known throughout town, my mom has owned the nail salon (Natural Nails) near the hospital for over 15+ years! My husband and I graduated from Michigan State and both work in the automotive industry. We love traveling but nothing beats a weekend at our alternative 'home' on Lake Michigan.

Thaiphi Ngo purchased this house in 2011

Why Thaiphi Ngo chose South Haven

The home was built in the 90s, so with the updates we have been making, it is a very newer feeling home. Though we live in SE Michigan, my mom lives around the corner from the rental property so they'll be able to assist with any of the questions/needs you may have during the stay. With all the living room spaces, we knew it was perfect for family gatherings in the future as we use the home on various occasions throughout the year.

What makes this house unique

We are updating the kitchen with new appliances, flooring and bedrooms over the 2017 Winter!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed South Haven and this home a lot. It was very comfortable and fully stocked with your essentials. Very clean!! The neighborhood is nice and quiet and it was great being so close to Kids Corner, the lake and beach. The owners were easy to reach and replied promptly when we had a question, also vey kind. We would definitely consider returning for another vacation.

Excellent Location, Clean, and great value

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here over the Blueberry Festival weekend for 3 nights. 3 families (3 couples, children, mother-in-law). The location is in the south side of South Haven, in a neighborhood, and only a 5 minute walk to the start of South Beach and Kid's Corner park. Downtown is a little farther walk, but being on the south side of the river still very close, only about 10-15 minutes walking. The neighborhood is quiet, which is welcome when the festival is going on.

The house was clean and comfortable. Kitchen well stocked with plates, bowls, pans, and utensils allowed us to eat at home a few times and grill on the wheelchair accessible deck.

Setup is split level, with 2 bedrooms and a bath upstairs, and 2 beds rooms and a bath downstairs. Extra beds and pullout couches in the basement allowed additional capacity and everyone to have their own bed.

Overall, the experience was great. The owner was ready and onsite to great us and show us around. And checkout was a breeze, just a text page to the owner and she was there in a few minutes. Only a few minor issues, but nothing that would prevent us from staying again. The cabinets in the kitchen were a little worn, the deck needs to be re-stained, and the temperature was hard to balance between the rooms upstairs and downstairs. But other than that, the home is great if you want to enjoy both the beach, downtown, and the excellent kids corner park. It was a great value and definitely recommend it.

Perfect Vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great stay. The owner was awesome to deal with. She answered all my questions about the area. The house layout gave everyone plenty of room. Within walking distance of park and beach. This was our first trip to South Haven and it won't be our last. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful home. Thank you, Holman's

Beautiful and spotless home in a great location!!

  • 4 of 5

We needed a wheelchair accessible home for my father and this worked perfectly. The property was a short walking distance to the beach and park. The home was well taken care of and clean and fit 10 of us with room to spare. Great yard and garage, and the owners were wonderful to communicate with and really cared about making us feel comfortable! We will definitely come back!

Sisters get away

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a retreat weekend in September for sisters and their nieces. This home had 4 bedrooms plus two additional sleeping areas. It was well cared for, clean, spacious and very comfortable. It is in a quiet neighborhood and just a couple blocks from the beach - easy walking. Table is large enough for 8 people to play cards. The owner met us and was very accommodating. If we ever have the chance to go back we would definitely try to stay here again.
