About Gary and Kim

Fun loving owners with two loving dogs

Gary and Kim purchased this house in 2014

Why Gary and Kim chose South Haven

We bought our home in SoHa after spending many years traveling up and down western Michigan. We fell in love with the town and it's wonderful beaches- perfect sand with manageable crowds. We know you will also love this warm and inviting town and area.

What makes this house unique

1920's home that has been completely renovated-- new kitchen, bathrooms, new beds/linens and completely stocked. The home is located just 4 blocks from the beach and 3 blocks to downtown South Haven.

Great vacation week

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in South Haven with our daughter, son-in-law and 2 grandsons, who came from Chicago for a family vacation. The house is newly renovated, nicely decorated and clean. Nice having 2 bathrooms. Fenced in backyard was great for our son-in-law's 2 beagles and our grandsons. We had 2 small issues on the first day and Gary was available to talk and text and stopped by the next day to check it out. We had to buy laundry detergent-none provided, but left the bottle downstairs- and trash bags after using what was provided. Also ran out of dishwasher tabs but I brought extras. We also purchased more hangers which we left in upstairs closet.

We walked into town almost every night which was about a 7-10 minute walk. We also walked to South beach and the pier, a 15 minute walk. We drove to North beach a couple times. Parking can be issue if you don't get there early enough.

If we return to South Haven, we will definitely consider staying at this house again.
