Perfect House for a Weeks Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this home. We stayed here for a week at the end of August, and it was perfect. The home is nicely updated and the kitchen was great (I think there were 3 different types of coffee makers!). We have young children and they were thrilled with the amount of toys and games that were provided in the house. One of the best things about this house is that ALL of the essentials are provided for you; toilet paper, paper towels, laundry and dishwasher detergent, soaps, shampoos, trash bags, charcoal, lighter fluid, beach chairs, water toys, beach wagon, everything. This greatly cut down on expenses for the week as we would have had to probably pay $75+ to buy just the essentials items ourselves.

The location could not have been more ideal. We were 3 blocks from downtown and 4 blocks from the amazing beach. We brought our bikes and bike trailer but we never needed to use them because we were close enough to walk to everything (even with a 2 year old). We drove to both St Joseph and Saugatuk, which are both about 20 minutes away and offer nice choices for shopping and dining. Blueberry, raspberry, and black berry picking were also just outside of town and were enjoyed by the whole family.

The house is in a very quiet part of town and we never had to worry about noise. This was a wonderful home in a great location.

Fantastic location ~ we loved this well appointed home!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in South Haven the last 10+ years and this was one of our favorites! What a FANTASTIC location! We absolutely loved walking to downtown (just a few short blocks) and also to the beach (10-15 min). We have previously sought out homes with private beach access (which was great), but we really preferred this location and would highly recommend.

The home is older, but nicely redone. Great style, awesome porch, great deck & backyard. The owners are very thoughtful in the appointments and all that is available. My 3yr old loved all the toys available. We appreciated the wagon, beach chairs, strollers, etc - made for a very easy stay!

I would highly recommend this home and feel that it is priced very well for the area. It was larger than we expected and very comfortable for our stay (2 adults + 2 children with 2 additional adults who visited for a couple of days).

Thank you for a great stay!

Great Place to Stay in South Haven

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here during the week of 4th of July. It is an easy walk to the beach and to the downtown area, and the 4th of July parade route was on the street, which made for a fun morning. The house is very clean and nicely updated, and there were plenty of amenities (beach chairs, games, wagons, etc) available as well. Ted and Meredith were very helpful and quick to reply to any inquiries. The only downside would be that the yard is not very large, but with the beach and parks close by, that didn't bother us too much. Would definitely stay again.

Our lovely week in South Haven

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful week in South Haven. Ted and Meredith's "rental home" is anything but a rental. It's a home. We spent mornings on the porch rocking and chatting with the neighbors. Evenings more of the same. We were 4 blocks from the beach and the heart of the township and walked everywhere! The weather was perfect and a far cry from the 94 degrees in Louisville. We will definitely be back next year!

My wife and I stayed here with friends that had a 1 year old. The location was excellent and the house was very clean. There were a variety of childrens toys and a great bedroom for children. We would definitely stay here again.

25th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved that we could rent a home for nearly the same cost as the local hotels and feel at home in someone else's house. Loved the little extras . . . cork screw & stoppers, wine glasses, night lights (motion activated), better-than-nice dishes (plus baking pans, sheets, etc), teas & coffees, washing machine & dryer, etc. We didn't use everything, but loved that we could! This would be a great place for those with young children, as toys, wagon, high chair & safety gate blocking access to the basement are provided. Kids of all ages would love this home, too, because they can walk to the beach and the downtown within a few blocks of the house. We booked the house less than a week before we were to arrive and Meredith pleasantly worked with us. Follow up by me was always appreciated by her and I received the damage deposit in less than one week (I think site states within two, so loved that!). The location is in a neighborhood and as we sat on the front porch, nearly everyone waved as they drove by. Super friendly area, great restaurants, so close to so much . . . tasting rooms, wineries, antique & resale shops, beaches/piers/light houses. We highly recommend South Haven, Michigan and the home provided by Meredith & her husband.
