Beautiful 5 Bedroom, 3 1/2 Bath Home Sleeps 12
This new, comfortable and spacious home is the perfect getaway in SW Michigan. It's located near everything, and you'll enjoy the open layout, beautiful new kitchen, relaxing porches, an evening outside cooking smores, and the AC after a hot day at the beach. Walk a few blocks west to South Beach for beautiful sunsets and a view of the lighthouse. Before you head to bed try out one of two jacuzzi tubs (one in each master bath) or give the kids a bath with a detachable shower hose - great for getting off sand!
There are stairs to get in either entrance, but once inside it is easy to enjoy one-floor living. The laundry room, kitchen, master suite and full bath are all on the main level.
There are five bedrooms:
Downstairs master suite with a queen bed
Upstairs yellow room with a queen bed
Upstairs blue room with twin over full bunk beds
Upstairs green room with full over full bunk beds
Upstairs master suite with a queen bed and a twin bed with a trundle bed
Pack and play can be easily located in any room.
Enjoy cooking with new appliances in a brand new kitchen. With two dining tables and a kitchen island, there is dining seating for 12 plus a youth chair and a high chair/booster seat that can strap on to a regular chair. The back deck has a small table that can seat up to 6.
Enjoy cable TV (during the summer, local stations rest of the year) on a 55" TV or enjoy TV in your bedroom (all rooms except kids' blue rm.).
We have a little free library on our front lawn - browse books, take books, donate books. More information about the little free library can be found at LittleFreeLibrary.org. Ours is number 35906. It is also on FaceBook at facebook.com/thebigbirdhouselfl
Southwest Michigan is chock full of great places to explore and ways to enjoy the outdoors. We supply a folder with maps, menus, activity information and great things to do within a short drive of South Haven.

About Joyce Hagen-McIntosh
Joyce grew up in Portage, MI and her family spent many evenings at South Beach in South Haven flying kites, having cookouts and enjoying the beach. In 2014 we built a house in South Haven and we enjoy spending time there with our sons, extended family, and friends. We are now a short drive from family in the Kalamazoo area and Grand Rapids. There are many great festivals in town and nearby (Blueberry Fest, Harborfest, Icecutter fest, Holland Tulip Festival, and summer art fairs!) as well as great golfing and winery tours for the adults. It is also near the Gingerman Speedway and son got to go last year and see the races. He loved it!
Joyce Hagen-McIntosh purchased this House in 2014

Our home is the perfect vacation spot - whether your idea of relaxation is shopping, dining out and going to a movie, and laying on the beach or taking a 20 mile bike ride on the Kal Haven Trail, hiking, para sailing, ice skating, cross country skiing, or hunting.

Amazing location, and beautiful house.
A great mini vacation and surprise family visit for my Mom, plenty of space for visiting and could sneak away for a nap if needed. Thanks again for sharing your house with us. The kids and adults uad fun doing Easter egg hunts in the backyard.
Great location, great grill and fire pit, had a blast making smores, hanging out by the fire each evening. Definitely recommend for any gathering. Plenty if space.
Perfect location. Beautiful new home
The house was in the perfect location. Easy walk to the town and the beach. The house was new, clean and has everything we needed. Perfect for large families. We would definitely rent this house again!
Perfect South Haven Family Retreat
This was a great family-friendly house. Everything was clean and in working order. The kitchen was well-equipped . But the best part for us was all the stuff for the kids. There was a pack and play, high chair , sippy cups, a double and single stroller, plastic pool, and all kids of toys and games all over the house. Loved the front porch and back deck. We could walk to the beach and downtown. The Kids Corner playground at the end of the street was wonderful. If you have small children , this is the rental for you!
Family Friendly Great Time
It was wonderful to have the best location in South Haven in such a beautiful new spacious home. It was so enjoyable to sit outside on the porch swing every morning, savoring my morning beverage on such a peaceful quiet street. The house had a fantastic open layout on the first floor. The tables were not only set-up great for dinning (not to mention the table on the back deck) but were great for playing games on. The bathrooms were lovely, so nice with the large Jacuzzi tubs and hand spray to rinse off the kids after a day at the beach. We used the large gas grill for family cookouts and delighted in late nights around the fire pit making s'mores. Joyce thought of everything we could possibly need from a well stocked kitchen, to a garage full of plenty of toys for the kids from push toys, kiddy pool (great when you just want to relax in the back yard), go carts, to bikes for the family (our grandson loved riding in the bike trailer). Joyce was wonderful, caring and easy to work with, always responding quickly to any questions. There was so much to do in South Haven and more great things within a short drive. Joyce made a very detailed binder that answered many questions and had many suggestions of things to do. We were there the beginning of August, during blueberry and peach season and had a great time going to the farms and orchards picking fruit and then coming back and baking the most delicious treats. If you don't want to bake but still want some great pie or hard cider, I highly recommend Crane Orchards. Another great highlight was the dune rides in Saugatuck (short 30 min ride away with fun shops to explore). We left with many great stories and wonderful memories. Perfect South Haven rental home! Thank you Joyce we look forward to staying here again.
Very nice home, great location
We rented this home for a getaway with our family. The home comfortably accommodated 8 people and it was obvious there was plenty of room for more (nobody slept in ine of the rooms that have bunk beds). The home was immaculate and offered plenty of amenities--an open, modern kitchen, a couple of options for meal seating, nice bathrooms, a gas grill, and bikes etc. we would rent this house again.
