This is an outstanding family home to rent. There were several of us staying there, as well as day visitors. The back screened-in porch seemed to be our hang out place. There's a relaxing table for talking, etc. that backs up to the woods.

The kitchen is fabulous. All of the cabinets are perfectly organized, everything is easy to spot, and I mean everything. No need to bring pots, pans, dishes, cups, glasses, etc. Best yet, when you open a drawer you see sparkling clean. The bathrooms have several little items that you may wish to use if you forgot something. It's quiet and dark out there at night, definitely clean your high beams before you leave if you are traveling at night!

Nice furniture in the living room, bedrooms, washer, dryer, whatever you need. It's a wonderful place to go for a family reunion. You have everything you need here. When you walk in you are ready to get started having fun.

Lovely house! We felt right at home immediately!

  • 5 of 5

Beach is short walk or drive away (there is a parking lot if you decide to drive). 5-10 min drive into downtown South Haven and blueberry picking is 2 min away. Owner was very kind, responsive, and thought of everything - from books and games (for kids and adults), family dvds, comfortable beds, extra pillows, wi-fi, you name it, they had it! Can't say enough great things! Thanks for a great week!!!

Perfect House, Perfect Experience, Perfect Vacation!

I can't stay enough about this property and the owner. Wendy was wonderful to work with. Flexible, accommodating, responsive. She goes above and beyond to make sure you are informed and have all you need before your visit so you can just concentrate on relaxing. The house is fantastic. The decor has a 'beachy vibe' which really makes you feel the minute you walk in like you are right on the coast! The house was superbly clean. The beds were comfortable and everything that you need to cook a meal is right there for you. It was nice all the extra touches as well.....the wireless speaker, charging station, Keurig machine, complimentary bottles of water! Wendy left a bottle of wine for us and a nice welcoming note. Everything in the house is labeled and binders are provided with lots of useful information about the property and South Haven. It's those little touches that really set this property apart from all the others You can tell that they really take pride in and care for this little cottage. Lots of towels are provided too--which is nice when traveling with a lot of people. We had children with us (they loved the bunk beds) and the provided movies, games, books etc. were really a nice touch. We also liked that there were night lights in each room! We enjoyed the fire pit one night (some wood is provided!) and by far our favorite spot in the house was the screened in porch! Not one bug got in--we sat out almost every night and not once had any issues with getting eaten up! We went to the beach everyday and it was such a help to have beach chairs, wagon, cooler etc. provided for us at the house for our enjoyment and use. It is right down the road from the main part of South Haven but far enough away that it is peaceful and quiet! I would not hesitate to book this cottage again, it was absolutely perfect.....we are already looking at dates to see when we can go back!
