About Marta Petter
I have an upscale historic house I remodeled and rent in Saugatuck - vrbo.com/444711 and used to live in South Haven so found this wonderful gem across from Packard Park and have remodeled it for upscale rental.
Marta Petter purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Marta Petter chose South Haven Charter Township
The location and setting is stellar.
What makes this Cottage unique
This cottage has plenty of windows, separate bedroom and open concept living, dining kitchen and then a nice patio and view of lake and 300 feet of sandy beach just across the street. Great beach walking, sun bathing, swimming, sunsets and all a quick stroll to downtown South Haven. Catalpa trees all around the property too! Private parking too.
Local Services & Businesses
Sports & Adventure Activities
Although the weather was uncooperative, we had a great place to stay. The property was in a great location where you could walk to restaurants and the beach was right there. Everything was so clean and the welcome basket was great. Definitely looking forward to another visit!
Wonderful getaway, super close to the beach and town!
We had an awesome weekend getaway in South Haven! The place was very cute, and perfect for us (2 adults and a toddler). It was across the street from the beach and within walking distance to the downtown area (Captain Lou's, coffee shops, shopping, etc.). Marta was super helpful, and also left us wine, cheese and crackers upon our arrival - so thoughtful. The bed was super comfortable and we really enjoyed the patio area outside of the cottage. We'll definitely be back!
Great location, cozy spot
Cozy & clean! Thoughtful amenities—all we needed and more, and a generous welcome of snacks & drinks. Thank you for sharing your home!
Relaxing weekend over Springbreak
Marta was very responsive to all questions and messages. The cottage is very clean and has the "Carribean beach" vibe to it. My wife remarked that "it's very cozy". It's literally about 50 yards from the beach. Also, it was very nice of Marta to leave a small snack out ( crackers and dip) - very appreciated with our bottle of wine.
Pro Tip for travelers: One thing to keep in mind if you are arriving late ( in the dark) - use little white fence ( about 6-8 feet long) as the parking lot entrance marker because it's hard to see the cottage from the street.
Thank you, Marta!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Marta's South Haven cottage. It was comfy, cozy, and filled with all the essentials and necessities. It was impeccably clean. The "Welcome Basket" was a nice addition, too. The location was ideal - short walk to town and beach/waterfront. Marta's attention to detail in the 'creature comforts of home' add a lot of value to the rental. We have rented a lot of homes and cottages in our travels and this one stands out at the top! Thank you, Marta!
Marta has an absolute beautiful place. It was very clean and she had everything we needed. The welcome basket was outstanding and a big surprise. We can’t wait to go back again.
Beautiful beach with not steps across the street. Long sandy beaches to walk or quick stroll into downtown with restaurants, nightlife.
