About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom. Sleeps 8. Great location. South Haven #634302

Charming cottage with all you need for a fun vacation. Bring your friends, family, or both. Relax on the couches and chairs to watch the recently added 42 inch flat screen television or sprawl out on the comfortable beds. The bathroom has been recently updated. Hang out on the new deck, make s'mores around the fire pit, grill some burgers, or lounge in the hammock. Kids Corner Park is 2.5 blocks away and 3.5 blocks to the beach, with an entrance straight down our street. Five blocks to downtown shopping and restaurants. Free wifi and cable. Enjoy a short drive to golf courses and wineries. Visit St. Joseph, Saugatuck, Holland, and other charming towns near by. We purchased this home in October 2014, for both our family and others to enjoy and to share the city that we have come to love.

About Rebekah and Dennis Smith

My husband and I first visited South Haven when I was pregnant with our first child. We loved it so much that we came back with my parents and sisters (and their families). We rented a house for the week and made so many special memories. We loved that we could walk downtown, to Kids Corner park, or to the beach and it was great for the adults as well as the kids. My husband and I, along with my parents, always talked about how wonderful it would be if we could have a home of our own here. This year, the four of us decided to make that dream a reality.

Rebekah and Dennis Smith purchased this house in 2014

Why Rebekah and Dennis Smith chose Southwest

We drove past this house on a Sunday morning and called the realtor listed on the sign. After walking through the house, we fell in love. It felt so cozy and inviting and we loved the backyard. It was very important for us to find a home that was in close proximity to everything we wanted to do. We ended up making an offer right away and the rest is history!

What makes this house unique

The backyard and new deck are perfect for hanging out during the day or night. The hammock is perfect for relaxing with a good book or taking a nap. There is a lot of outside seating if you want to bbq or a fire pit for a late night get together. This house is within walking distance to everything you want to do in South Haven.

Charming, Comfortable, and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The house was comfortable and immediately felt like home. The kitchen was well stocked with both cooking utensils, pots, and pans. Just a couple blocks up from the beach, we were able to walk down to watch the sun set over the lake every evening and still put the kids to bed early. Hammock was loved by all. Great place to stay with kids.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Would definitely stay again! House is well kept and cozy. Loved the short walk to the beach and downtown. Owners were super responsive and very accommodating. Lake Michigan cleanses the soul, while the hammock rests it. Thank you for the memories. -The Fishers

A wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the cottage. The place was exactly what we hoped for, plenty of space and stocked with good supplies, very, very clean and the perfect location to downtown and the beach. We would definitely stay there again!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Great location and accommodations! We loved being able to walk or bike to the beach, playgrounds, downtown restaurants and shops, and bike trails. We visited during the blueberry festival which was fun and kayaked the black river one day. The house was nice and the kids enjoyed playing the board games provided.

Great Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My family and I -- wife, daughter and three granddaughters -- spent a week at the house. It is a three-block-walk to the beach and the kids of all ages playground. It is also minutes by car, or a bit more if you want to walk, to the Maritime Museum and its sailing adventure or lake tour, Julia's, Brix, Kilwin's ice cream, the Farmer's Market, Black River Books, and other favorites. The house was well-equipped with everything we needed in the way of towels, linens, cooking and dining utensils, grill, fire-it, etc. The washer and dryer came in handy. We didn't watch the cable TV but did use the DVD for a movie. Bring beach towels. The sunsets are spectacular. The owners were very cooperative, answered questions quickly, and were quite helpful.
