It had almost everything you would need and had a great location. Very pretty.

  • 5 of 5

It was very clean and well kept and is right next to the bridge in Southhaven and only a few blocks from the beach. Parking is close. It is also close to restaurants. Almost everything you need is supplied. It would be nice to get a fresh bar of soap for the bath. There is a futon but we had no bedding for the futon. We had a lot of trouble with the Wi-fi. We could get on it but it kept dropping us off so it was pretty useless. This place was very quiet and evidently it has year-round residents. There are a lot of rules. It would not be appropriate for noisy children. On the whole, it was a great place to stay. The price is reasonable. I would recommend it and I would go back.

Great location! Convenient to everything. We didn't need our car once we arrived. Rooms are a little on the smaller side, but it wasn't an issue for our family of four.

Great location at the expense of some street noise

  • 4 of 5

Overall good experience. Unit was clean and convenient to get to. Location is good with 5-10 min walk to downtown area and 15 minute walk to beach. It's nice to be right on the river and the deck is a very nice amenity.

I'd be inclined to leave 3.5 stars if I could. Not so much fault of owner, but location lends itself to quite a bit of street noise. South Haven has more of a 20-30 something party scene than I was expecting. Lot of noise from partiers walking between bars. Friday the noise stopped around 10pm. Saturday there was noise until 12:30 AM, primarily from several bachelorette parties that walked by. Also get noise from cars or motorcycles hot rodding around as they leave the stop sign intersection next to the building and floor the accelerator for a few seconds. We had to run AC fan constant and bathroom fan to generate some white noise, which drowned out about 75-80% of the noise. If you are a light sleeper and don't like white noise I'd be a little leery of renting on weekend in particular.

I thought the cleaning fee was quite steep given the laundry list of expectations you are given. I have a maid clean 1600 sq ft home for 2-3 hours for the same price. Shouldn't take a maid more than 30 mins to get unit ready for next guest if unit is vacated in expected condition. $100 is too steep in my opinion. There were also documentation discrepancies between rental agreements sent by email and the handbook in the unit. Check-in time and whether or not the dishwasher needs to be run or run and emptied were two things I noticed.

Cute condo in great location!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my 2 adult daughters this past weekend. The condo was very clean and nicely equipped. The beds were comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the deck in the evening. We had no issue at all. The owner was very prompt in all correspondence and in returning the security deposit. The location is fantastic, walking distance to everything. We recommend Admiral Jack's for breakfast! Parking for 2 vehicles is across the street, but we were able to find parking for our third vehicle without issue. Would recommend this condo.
