Just like home!!

  • 5 of 5

Marta's house is a dream come true for vacationing families. We had 10 adults and eight grandchildren and had plenty of room for all. Everything's included, chairs, beach toys, towels and the house is lovely inside and decks and space outside for all your needs. Lots of bathrooms, close to the beach when the little ones needed a break, & the weather was fantastic ! We enjoyed the fireworks, night sunsets, the bikes and being able to walk to town!

The kitchen is fabulous and we had a great time cooking up local meats from Bobs Meat Market. Thanks, Marta it was a vacation to remember!!

Perfect Location ~ Perfect Accomodations!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time I've stayed at Marta's properties. They have all that you can possibly need ~ from bikes and beach towels to any spice or condiment!! Awesome is how I describe it. The 5 bedroom house with the other two cottages was perfect for our family reunion. Right across from a park and the beach! Many bikes to choose from to ride the trails... Great gourmet kitchen with tons of seating space. The only problem is that we all wanted to stay longer. Marta is the ultimate hostess leaving lovely bottles of wine, snacks and treats!! Thank you, thank you...

Amazing, totally filled the bill. The owner was so pleasant and easy to work with. A real treat.

  • 5 of 5

We came as a family of 15 and the facility totally met our needs. Lots of area to spread out so everyone had their own space. The front deck itself allowed all of us to even eat together. The fact that so much was within walking distance was another plus. It doesn't sound important but even private parking was so helpful.

I need to comment on the cleanliness of the whole facility, it was amazing. Not many places I go into that I don't feel like I need to clean first. The fact that it was to totally furnished was so helpful, all the basics were provided, even down to kitchen condiments and beach towels.

We were able to take advantage of some of the locals, Express Yourself/Art Barn in/near Douglas/Saugatuck, Farmers Market, I regret that we didn't find time to take in the old downtown theater, I understand that should have been a must. So many options we needed another week to fit everything in.

I'd love to be able to do it again, we'll see. Ruth Birman

Marta thought of everything!

  • 5 of 5

Marta's capacity to anticipate all the things you will need/want for a week at Lake Michigan is outstanding! There were more than enough beach towels, beach wagons, plenty of chairs, bikes to ride, port-a-cribs for the little ones and welcoming local beer and wine for the adults! :) We loved the big, open deck out front, the fenced yard and the lovely view toward the lake. The upstairs bedrooms and baths are especially nice. The kitchen had plenty of seating for all of us. It is an easy walk to the downtown shopping area, which is an added bonus. We highly recommend this home--in doing so, our only concern is that it could get booked before we get a chance to book it for ourselves the next time we are ready to vacation together! Enjoy!

We had a wonderful family vacation in South Haven!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Marta's main house and cottage for our family vacation this past week. It was a lovely vacation home..we especially appreciated how clean and well kept the home was. With 8 bedrooms and 8 1/2 baths, our children and grandchildren had ample room to make themselves at home. The kitchen was stocked with the basic pantry items needed and the kitchen appliances were top quality. We loved the long granite bar with stools as well. The large deck and small intimate outside areas were all great. It was fantastic to have just a very short walk to the beautiful beach! Our children loved that they could take walks to downtown South Haven and get coffee or visit the shops. We went bike riding on the Kal Haven trail, which was beautiful. It was a wonderful week of family fun! Thanks again Marta! The Fuelberths
