Why Marta Petter chose South Haven

It is large beautiful home with special views and access to Lake Michigan beach. With thick plaster walls, high ceilings and now walls of windows it is an upscale house at the beach.

What makes this house unique

Across from Packard Park with 300 feet of beach. This house and cottage sits on two City blocks with plenty of yard and space. And it is a quick stroll to downtown.

Superb Michigan Rental Home

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous home with full amenities, plus loads of charm and comfort. We have rented several homes for many years in Michigan and beyond. Marta knows what she is doing and provides a wonderful experience for her guests. Hands down, best rental home, by far! Spacious, well-equipped, clean, and decorated beautifully. An unexpected bonus, Marta leaves you a nice welcome basket upon arrival!

Best in South Haven

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay on this property, and once again it was wonderful. Close to everything. So amazingly equipped with everything-in the house and for the beach. Marta is a great owner, and is always quick to respond to any questions.

We highly recommend this house to nay large family gathering.

Repeat visitors - loved it as much as the first time

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Marta's beautiful South Haven home. The location is excellent in terms of access to the beach and the town. The house is beautifully decorated, well appointed and well stocked. This was our second week long stay and we loved every minute of it. In addition, Marta was so attentive! We had trouble with the wifi and she popped over immediately to fix it with the cable company. And we managed to lock ourselves out -- and again, Marta was over in a blink to let us in. Delightful all around.

AMAZING house and location!

  • 5 of 5

Marta's house is so beautiful and comfortable. The house includes everything you can imagine - extras like - wagons, bikes for kids, bikes for adults, beach toys, beach towels and lot more. We went with a group of 13 folks and there was plenty of room for both adults and kids. The whole house was super clean and organized. The location is spectacular with access to ALL the major attractions in the South Haven area. Highly recommend this house! We can't wait to go back.

Perfect in every way for our family

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay in South Haven at Marta's home was everything we hoped it would be. The accommodations were perfect for our four adult couples and four young children. She had everything we could possible need and more including bikes and beach toys. The sandy beach was beautiful and enjoyed by all of us daily. It is an easy walk into South Haven to enjoy the farmer's market, ice cream, and restaurants! Fishing and golf were fun as well. We would highly recommend any of Marta's properties as she is a very responsive owner. Thanks Marta!
