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

Mark Kemink purchased this house in 2014

Why Mark Kemink chose Southwest

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.

Quiet home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We really liked the location of this home, which was one block from a children's park and two blocks from the lake. It was also a reasonable walking distance from the shops and restaurants along the Phoenix Street area. Yet, it was tucked into a quiet street that allowed for my toddler to run around safely (with our supervision) without cars buzzing by. The layout of the home was nice, with four sizable bedrooms upstairs and a kitchen with adjacent/connected sitting area down. The owner was very responsive when we had a couple questions.

Cute place, clean home, quiet street, within walking distance of many attractions

  • 5 of 5

This house is updated, clean, and bigger than it looks from the outside. It's on a quiet street, but is still close to the beach, Kids Town park, and walking to the main strip is definitely doable (it's less than a 5-minute drive). Only thing we struggled with was locking up the house, which could have been user error, despite additional instructions from the owner. While we were there for a girls' weekend and not with our families, all agreed it would be a great place to return to with littles. Definitely would recommend this property to anyone. Thanks for helping make our weekend so much fun!

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house. Very clean and modern. We had plenty of room for 7 adults and one child. Great idea to have a bunk bed in one bedroom with a queen bed for kids and or adults. Easy walk to beach and playground. Mark was great to work with.

Comfortable and inviting South Haven vacation property

  • 5 of 5

For the last two years, my family has enjoyed time together over Memorial weekend in this South Haven vacation rental. Located in a quiet neighborhood, three blocks from the beaches of Lake Michigan and within walking distance of downtown South Haven, we enjoyed this casual and spacious home. The kitchen is fully equipped. Four bedrooms and two full baths gave the nine of us plenty of room. Mark, the owner, is great to work with! An additional bonus for us was the Kids Park, which my grandchildren loved, two blocks away. All in all, I would highly recommend this vacation rental if you are looking for a place to relax and simply get away!

South Haven rental was newer, clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental that gives you the best of both worlds. It is located on a secluded cul-de-sac, yet it is only a short walk to South Beach. The owner was very accommodating and responsive. He has wagons and coolers in the garage that were handy for the beach trips. Make sure you visit Captain Nemo's for ice cream one night and walk to the pier to watch the sunset. Brix is a family-friendly place with good food and has outdoor seating. This was our first time to South Haven. We will be back!

Great Vacation Stay at 732 Maple Gate Court

  • 4 of 5

This was the first time we've stayed in South Haven. The House at 732 Maple Gate Court was a perfect fit for our vacation and we found it to be exactly as described in the advertisement. We especially liked the location and being one of only three homes on the culdesac was a special bonus because we had small children visiting and they were able to play outside safely. We also had extra vehicles that were parked easily on the street. Next time we will bring adult bikes for use on the adjacent bike trail. Our 3 sets of married children and 6 small grandchildren came and went throughout the week. The sleeping arrangements were great, the beds comfortable and the house perfect walking distance to the park and beach, even the public beach was an easy walk with small children in tow. Thank goodness for the garage that stored nicely our coolers, beach toys, childrens bikes and travel equipment. Our grand children referred to it as the "Red House". We hope to have started a tradition, at least returning every other summer.
