Why Theresa or Matt Koswenda chose Southwest

You pay NO additional fees to VRBO when you book this property. Fees quoted are all inclusive and VRBO does not take an additional fee because you pay property owner directly by check only.

Close to home but yet away from all of the stress of living near a large city. Quiet, peaceful neighborhood;exceptionally clean home! Can walk to the beach and see amazing sunsets. Or-walk to town and enjoy the great restaurants and shopping. Take a cruise on Friends Good Will--sails three times daily including sunset. New this year is a forty foot cruise ship. We discovered South Haven in the early 1980's and have been coming back every since. It is our favorite home away from home.

What makes this condo unique

This is a beautiful upstairs condo with its own private entrance. Driveway or Street parking available. Prefer to rent to couples and small families.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I stayed here from mid-July until after Labor Day. Your condo is beautifully decorated, clean, and in a very quiet location. I could walk everywhere--to the beach or to town. I would come here again and recommend it to anyone looking for a nice location very centrally located to South Beach and to the center of town.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 spent a weekend in South Haven (August 19-21). This property was absolutely perfect for us! Everything was as described, and the location was fantastic. My two youngest kids actually used the (huge) closet off the bedroom as their bedroom while we were there, sleeping on the air mattress that was provided in the rental. We cooked breakfast in the rental each morning, but went to Clementine's and Captain Lou's for meals. Cannot say enough wonderful things about this property! Location is number one and this place is in a perfect location!! We have fallen in love with South Haven and are already trying to plan our next trip back! Theresa was wonderful to work with! Very nice and helpful. Thanks again Theresa for sharing your lovely property with my family and me!

Best Place Around!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful rental to stay while in SoHa! This property is immaculate & very spacious and very well appointed in decor! The kitchen is equipped to cook a full meal if one wanted or it's just a short walk to one of the many unique restaurants in town. I think the best part of this rental is the proximity to the beach! In the morning we would take a short walk to the shoreline enjoying the fact that we had it practically to ourselves! Amazing quietness of the Lake and the view is one to behold! Theresa & Matt are awesome people to rent from and you will not be disappointed in their hospitality!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 have been coming to south haven for years but could only do a short trip this year. This property was selected as I was able to book for just a 3 night stay. That's hard to find during peak season! The rental is very clean and well stocked, as well as close to walking distance to town and beach. Theresa is wonderful to work with! A nice surprise was the size of the closets... the one in the bedroom is big enough to make a another 'bedroom' for kids with an inflatable mattress or a pack and play.

Mother's Day Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and comfy place! Space is comfortable for a family of 4. Extremely clean space. Wish it was a bit warmer so we could sit on the porch as it adorable. Everything you need for a home away from home. Surprised by the nice breeze from the lake through the open windows. Quiet neighborhood. Easy short walk to South Beach and the lighthouse. Downtown South Haven is just a few block walk. Stores are very quaint and friendly. Very relaxing weekend for all of us. Theresa was wonderful. We would definitely come back. Easy drive to Holland for Tulip Time!

Great time!!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice and comfortable place to stay. It has everything you need, just bring your clothes, food, and beach towels. Very clean. Nice bedroom, big living room, big bathroom, everything you need to cook, lots of storage space. Nice porch to sit out on. You can walk to the beach or the pier for beautiful sunsets. Nice park in walking distance. Quiet neighborhood, but close to attractions. Theresa is very nice, and great to work with. I had a wonderful, relaxing mini vacation and would love to go back.

Owner's Response: Thanks again for choosing our condo. It is very conveniently located and within a short walking distance to most of the attractions in town and of course, the beach! Golf courses and beautiful wineries surround the area, plus many other things to do for short day trips! I hope you will come back again to relax in our condo, have fun, and make beautiful memories!
