About Patti

My husband and I live nearby and enjoy walking our dog to the beach and along the river, almost daily, to take in the sunset. On weekends, we love to walk to town for dinner.

Patti purchased this house in 2012

Why Patti chose South Haven

Large back yard is nestled in busy area but feels secluded.

Play on the beach all day then unwind on our patio and let me kids play in backyard.

Kids can watch a movie upstairs and fall asleep while your downstairs watching movie or sitting on patio watching the fire pit. (Wood included)

South Haven is a great town and we are lucky to live in a place where people love to come spend their vacation. This quaint town is becoming a year round destination offering summer fun and winter sports in addition to home town shopping and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

Our home has refinished oak floors and is cozy and sunny. Backyard is serene either on the patio or the 2nd floor deck. Unwind under the 90 year old tree in the backyard after an active day. Blocks from the beach and downtown. This is a great home base to enjoy the town or stay at home and take advantage of the kitchen or barbeque to unwind with your group.

South Haven home

  • 4 of 5

House was nice--a little challenging for small kiddos. We had to move some furniture and decorations to baby proof. Location was okay--across the street from a liquor store and on a very busy street--hard to back out of the driveway. Definitely not walkable to the beach or downtown with 2 little ones.

Owner's Response: Hey wish you had called we could have supplied gates for the stairs. We offer bikes for your rides around town or on the Kal-Haven Trail. We do have a Radio Flyer Wagon in the garage and have seen others take it downtown to give the toddlers a ride. There is a convenience store located across the street. There is also Burger King and Dollar Store. South Haven has population of 5,000 and in the summer weeks we have population of 35,000 as everyone flocks to our town to hit the beach. So our streets are busy.

Great spot for a getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our time in South Haven. The house was very comfortable and nicely remodeled. Loved the deck off the upstairs bedroom. The home was nicely equipped with everything we needed. Easy walk to downtown and to the beach.

Beautiful house made for a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house has been decorated to a very high standard and the owners have made sure you have everything you need for a great vacation! Communication was great from the start and are nearby should you require anything! You can walk to the town and beach and bikes are also provided. Although the house is on a main road we didn't find this busy so it wasn't a problem! We had a great vacation in this house and South Haven is a fantastic place to visit, The Cornford family from London

Property is very well maintained and updated.

  • 4 of 5

The property looks exactly like the pictures posted. It is very clean, inside and out. The beds are comfortable and the a/c in the bedrooms are in good working order.

The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is the location on a busy street.

Thank you for the nice stay!
