Truly a top notch home

  • 5 of 5

The home had every convenience, plus absolutely adorable, up-to-date furnishings and decorating...from the kitchen, to the living areas, to the bathrooms to the bedrooms! I was so impressed and comfortable and delighted with Sabina's Sandcastle! Perfect walk to beach and town too.

Birthday Girl

  • 5 of 5

Celebrated birthday weekend with family - had a wonderful time! The house is beautiful and well furnished. We used the fire pit in the evening and enjoyed the patio and fenced in yard with its wonderful landscaping. Spent mornings walking to town and afternoons at the beach! We enjoyed the evenings grilling in our great surroundings. Perfect fit for our family and granddaughter. Owners are very accommodating and very prompt in communications! Great place!

Wonderful family rental.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, close to the beach, town and a great park. The house has plenty of space inside and outside for the kids to play, and space enough for the adults to relax and not feel crowded. The home is well decorated and the kitchen has everything you need. Have stayed at many locations in South Haven and Holland and this location tops the list. As a added plus, the owners are outstanding to work with. We will most definitely stay there again.

Perfect Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The home is a perfect summer getaway for the whole family. The house contains everything you need from kitchen supplies to toys and games for kids of all ages and a trunk of costumes for the kids to dress up and let their imaginations run wild. The house is conveniently located about 5 minute walk to the best park in town, similar distance to the beach and a 10 minute walk from the main street with all of the restaurants, bars and shops. If you have no interest in walking away, it also has everything you need to stay at home. The house has a large back deck for relaxing or grilling, a spacious backyard, a comfortable fire pit area for roasting marshmallows at night and a comfy porch to rock in with a book and a cold drink. We have traveled to South Haven for years and this house sets the gold standard.

Exceptional Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Sabina’s Sandcastle. It was truly a home away from home, with ample space for eight of us (four adults and four children). Olga’s decorating sensibilities were not lost on us, as we appreciated the tasteful décor, ample space for unpacking, and comfortable furniture indoor and out, including very comfortable beds. The yard is nicely landscaped with beautiful plantings and a nice herb/vegetable garden. These were convenient when we were making meals, in addition to the fully stocked kitchen. We were able to fit our entire party around the large dining table during meals. The kids (ages 7, 5, 4, 2) loved the reading nook, toys, games, and dress up clothes. The two televisions came in handy after a long day at the beach – one for grandpa to watch the news and one for the kids to watch a movie while we prepared dinner. The laundry facilities were also a wonderful perk. The outdoor space was perfect for the kids to run around, play whiffle ball, lie in the hammock, lounge on the porch, and cook s’mores over the open fire. And you cannot beat the location! We walked everywhere – to the beach, the playground, and downtown. Thank you so much to Olga for her excellent communication while booking and at rental time, for providing tons of information about the house and the South Haven area, and for always being accessible for questions. We definitely recommend staying at Sabina’s Sandcastle!

Sabrina's Castle was beautiful and perfect for our week. It is spacious, beautiful with detail, and comfortable. It is a great location in South Haven, close to everything. I cannot say enough great things about the house or the rental experience. Olga is kind, very prompt in returning emails/questions, and thoughtful to so many other details. I highly recommend this home.
