About Gary and Kim

Fun loving owners with two loving dogs

Gary and Kim purchased this house in 2014

Why Gary and Kim chose Southwest

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.

This was a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great. It is just a couple of blocks from downtown. Great location. The property was super clean and well stocked. Games, books, kitchen had it all. The kitchen and bathrooms had very nice features/upgrades. The fenced in yard also made it a wonderful vacation for our dog. We hope to be able to stay here again for our next trip to South Haven. My whole family really loved this property!

Beautiful, comfortable vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The house is totally remodeled and very comfy. Lots of space and a great kitchen. It's easy to walk to town and to Cafe Julia for their morning bakery treats. There's a great deck in the back to watch the squirrels and bunnies. Our kitty Coco enjoyed being with us!

Lovely and spacious house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here during our trip to South Haven in Aug 2016. We were super impressed -- the home is beautiful and had everything we could have needed. The beds were comfy, and the house was very clean and well-equipped. The kitchen and appliances could not have been better -- big, beautiful kitchen and awesome appliances. The back deck was lovely for coffee in the mornings while the kids played in the fenced-in backyard. We especially loved having the top floor to ourselves as parents with the bedroom and private (beautiful!) bathroom upstairs. The beach was a 5-minute bike ride and you can walk a couple of blocks into town. We plan to stay in this house again on our next trip to South Haven. The owners were so nice to work with and easy to reach as well. They have certainly thought of everything with this house -- we did not have a single issue. Go stay here -- you won't regret it! :-)

South Haven 2016

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Gary and Kim's cottage in South Haven. As our kids are in college it was wonderful to all be together at the lake. The house was wide open and much bigger than it looks in the photos. It was very clean and up to date with the decor and amenities. It was supplied with everything we could need and more. The cottage was close to town and a nice walk to the beach. Our dog Lucy loved the yard and morning walks around town, she even discovered that the hardware store gives out dog treats.

I would highly recommend renting this cottage and I'm sure we will be back next year.
