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.

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.

  • 5 of 5

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!

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.
