Why the Owner Chose South Haven, MI, USA:
This is my childhood home! Although we haven't lived here in many years, we only decided in 2005 to make it into a vacation rental since it truly is in a wonderful location, and the property itself is ideal for large families wishing to stay together, yet seperate, between the three units. The 3 block walk to the beach is lovely and you are also only 2 blocks from charming downtown South Haven. Our guests come back again and again, letting us know that we are doing something right! We have tried to provide everything WE would want in a vacation home. Choose Three by the Sea for your large family gathering. We feel sure you'll want to come back!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Aside from a wonderful location, we have a garage stocked with a whole fleet of bicycles for nearly all ages, kayaks, gas AND charcoal grills, beach toys, a Burley to wheel everything to the beach, and more! There are plenty of outdoor areas to relax or play: we have a hammock, a deck, and a porch; we have a basketball court, a picnic table, and a tree chair swing that the kids love. Indoors we have comfy beds, a two large kitchens, two washers/dryers, games, books, and an open floor plan for games, t.v., and more.
