Why Marilyn Darby 1062 LAKE MI AVE, SOUTH HAVEN MI 49090 chose Casco
We have lived in our home on Lake Michigan Bluff for 30 years. Living here is a beautiful experience regardless of the weather. We have watched many amazing sunsets as well as the strong storms. The cottage property joins our home property. We felt we wanted a place for people to come and experience the beautiful lake, the serenity of the location. We are open for seasonal renters during the spring, summer and fall months, and would like a long term renter for the winter. 2018 Township Ordinance are to be strictly followed, Fines will be applied by Casco/Allegan County Police Department if the ordinances are broken and or violated. 1.

What a wonderful little gem! A FANTASTIC view of blue Lake Michigan! Very clean. Beautiful landscaping. The large front yard was great for playing games (they have yard games available) or just catch. Beautiful sunsets! Great location as it is near several fun areas - South Haven, Holland, Saugatuck/Douglas. This was a trip with adult family members. Our only regret is that we didn't get to spend more time with the owner - a truly sweet woman (we didn't get to meet her husband, who I am sure is great too!). She gave us EXCELLENT dining recommendations, and is a wonderful source of information, so please, talk with her! We will make the trek from West Virginia again - it is worth it!

SERENITY SUNSET IS A PARADISE. IF A WEEK ON LAKE MICHIGAN IS WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THIS WOULD BE A PERFECT LOCATION. BRIGHT AND SHINY CLEAN. BEAUTIFUL YARD WITH GRASS, FLOWERS AND TREES. APPROPRIATE FOR ANY AGE. SOUTH HAVEN HAS GREAT SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS. THE OWNERS ARE FRIENDLY AND WANT YOU TO ENJOY YOUR STAY. THE SUNSETS ARE BEAUTIFUL. THE BEACH IS ALWAYS CLEAN. A GREAT BEACH FOR A WALK AT ANY TIME OF THE DAY.
Having made many great acquaintances has made our years of renting our cottage on the bluff of lake Michigan a great pleasure. We want to express our appreciation to both our past and future renters.

SERENITY SUNSET IS A PARADISE. STAYING SOMEWHERE ELSE FOR A SUMMER VACATION WOULD NEVER BE CONSIDERED. IT HAS EVERYTHING:SUN, SHADE, GRASS, TREES, SUNSETS, A BEAUTIFUL BEACH AND FLOWERS. SOUTH HAVEN HAS GREAT SHOPS AND RESTAURANTS. IT IS VERY CLEAN AND SPACIOUS. THE OWNERS ARE FRIENDLY BUT ALSO GIVE YOU PRIVACY. A GREAT PLACE FOR ALL AGES.
Thank-you for your great review-- I agree 100% and we are so glad to have others realize the hard work my husband and I have put into our cottage and surrounding yard.
Bob and MJ
We have stayed at Serenity Sunset for several years now. It is consistently the best vacation we could ask for. The accommodations are spotlessly clean and comfortable. The views are spectacular, and the beach is heaven. Every year. The owners are fantastic hosts and truly care about our vacation. We love the location between Saugatuck and South Haven. It leaves many options for a day or evening out. The nearby little town of Glenn is quaint and has necessities without going into the city. If a beach vacation is what you are looking for, this is it!
Thank-you Bob and MJ I am privileged to know your family and spend time with all of you over the years. Watching your children grow has been an enriching experience and I have great respect for all of you. Your friends the Darby's
Three generation family gathering - Very special!
This property was accurately portrayed and even more beautiful than photos show especially for gardening aficionadas! Lots of room for all our family to gather - inside or out for games, barbeques, or just to relax on the spacious front deck for the breathtaking views and evening sunsets. We could watch the July 3rd fireworks in South Haven right from the property's beach and enjoyed the July 4th parade in Saugatuck, both so close by. Also took the grandchildren to Holland's Dutch Village. Each town had farmers markets, music on the greens, and just minutes we were lucky to catch the town of Glenn's famous pancake breakfast that was yummy. Glenn also has wonderful homemade pizza and sides at their general store which we used to cater a huge family reunion and our grandchildren loved their town playground. We were fortunate to have gorgeous weather, gorgeous sunsets and many wonderful days down on the beach to collect rocks and driftwood, frolic in the waves of Lake Michigan and walk the shoreline. Evenings by the fire pit roasting hotdogs and marshmallows topped off our perfect days. We even rented the next door little cottage so we could have extended family members visit for overnights which made everything all the more special. A huge thanks to Joe and Marilyn Darby for their kind hospitality and sharing of such a priceless gem of beautiful "Pure Michigan".
Joe and Marilyn appreciate your wonderful review. We are truly thankful for the satisfaction you expressed. I love to garden and I am so pleased others can enjoy our effort to make this a relaxing, enjoyable surroundings.
