About the property

Newer 4 Bedroom Home by the Park and Beach

Lovely, newer clean four-bedroom, two-bathroom home only two blocks from the popular Kid's Corner park and South Beach! Home sits on a very quiet, culdesac at the end of a dead end street in a new private neighborhood. Location is also near the downtown (a little bit further of a walk - about six blocks) to unique shops and restaurants and all that make South Haven one of Michigan's most sought-after vacation destinations.

About Mark Kemink

We've been renting homes to vacationers in South west Michigan for several years and love every aspect of it! You can see all our homes at www.westmichiganstays.com.

Mark Kemink purchased this house in 2014

Why Mark Kemink chose South Haven

We fell in love with this property for several reasons. First, it's right by the popular Kids' Corner park (kids and parents love that place) and right by South Beach here in South Haven - another really popular area. It's convenient enough that you can run home real quick if you forgot something at the beach or need a quick break.

After location, we loved the fact that it's a newer hime - built in 2007. It's clean, well kept and just a nice relaxing place.

What makes this house unique

Space for your tribe, clean, and super convenient to everything in South Haven - beach, park and downtown.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This had to be one of my best lodging choices so far. It was less than 5 minutes to the beach or to the park. The cul-de-sac made it great for the kids to ride bikes in between and it was very quiet. The bedrooms were all large and the beds very comfortable. The layout of the house was excellent. I had various family members coming and going and everyone enjoyed their stay.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 11 (8 adults, 3 babies) stayed at this home for my daughter's South Haven beach wedding. There was enough room for all of us and plenty of bedding and blankets. The additional bunk bed in 1 upstairs bedroom was great for my grandson and the kids enjoyed the short wagon ride up to Kids Corner Park. The walk to South Beach was about 7 blocks and we had a lot of fun sitting around the backyard fire pit in the evening. It was also nice to be in a cul-de-sac as we had more parking area available and not as much traffic to worry about. Thanks again and we hope to be back soon!

Great South Haven beach house in quiet neighborhood near South Beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time staying at this South Haven beach house for the past two weeks. It's located in a cul-de-sac and we stayed next door to our friends (in a home identical to this one), so we were able to let our children play out front, ride their bikes, etc. with no worries. The house is well appointed with 4 good-size bedrooms (all on the same floor) and 2 bathrooms. Everything is in very good and new order, and it was a cozy, great place to call home for our 2 week vacation in South Haven. It's a close walk to the beach (South Beach), and I walked downtown to Cafe Julia every morning (downtown). Definitely recommend staying here!

Relaxing, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for the six of us. The kids had a bunk, besides a full bed. My son enjoyed reading out on his balcony. My daughter and son in law had their room and I had mine. The whole place was very clean with all the supplies we needed, including cut firewood for the fire pit.

It was an easy walk to the beach. My favorite was watching the gorgeous sunsets.

Very clean and well stocked. The neighbor even dropped off a stack of wood for the fire pit.

I would recommend this property without hesitation. Within walking distance of the Lake Michigan beach and right on a hike, bike, and running trail.

Great house and location - very clean!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a week with another family! We have 4 adults and 4 kids under 4 - we had plenty of room to spread out and never felt cramped! The house is located on a quiet culdesac which was great for the kids! Bring bikes! The distance to beach/playground was ideal and it was a short 10-15 min walk downtown. house was very clean upon our arrival. Mark was very helpful and quick to act when there were issues with the grill and when I (irresponsibly) forgot to take out the garbage! Would stay here again!
