Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying at this amazing home!

The pictures and descriptions don't do this place justice. This home has everything you could ask for...beautiful views of Lake Michigan, well maintained and comfortable spaces with plenty of room for everyone to find their own quiet corner, a beautiful kitchen to meet all your cooking and entertaining needs, toys and a playground for the kids and a fantastic pool!

This place has never disappointed us. With five adults (myself, 2 daughters and son-in-laws) and 4 grandchildren (6 years old and under) everyone has their own special place. We all love playing in the pool, lunch on the screened in porch, sharing evening meals at the large dining room table and watching sunsets on the porch. The grandkids love the bunk room, playground and watching movies before bedtime downstairs. In addition, this home is minutes away from downtown South Haven's beautiful public beaches, shopping and family activities.

Wonderful family memories for us are definitely being created here and we will be back next year!

Everything you need and more

  • 5 of 5

Wow, we were blown away by this place. The host was amazing and accommodating. The place had everything we could possibly need unlike some rental places. It is a beautifully designed house. The pictures and video do not do the view justice though. The property itself was so amazing.

We had 10 people staying here and it was very comfortable. Thank you for helping us create an amazing experience and memories!

Amazing Home and Views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time enjoying this house over the Thanksgiving weekend with our entire family. We all had very comfortable sleeping arrangements, loved the open floor plan on main level and beautiful view of Lake Michigan. The sun sets were beautiful. The kitchen had everything we needed for making meals. The boys loved the Xbox and the girls loved their built in bedroom upstairs. We could only imagine how beautiful this would be in the summer with the pool and beach in play. Very good location and close to South Haven for any food and grocery needs. We highly recommend this home and hope to be back.
