"We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at this lovely home in early October. The location was perfect for us -- just a couple of blocks from the downtown area (far western end) and on a very pretty, quiet cul-de-sac. A 10-15 minute walk to the (South) beach/light house and a 2 minute drive. Easy walk to all the shops and restaurants for my elderly mother. The property has been professionally landscaped and appears newly remodeled. The home is immaculately clean and well maintained. Lots of windows and a bright, spacious feeling interior. The kitchen was beautiful and well-stocked with everything you need for a comfortable visit. Loved the first floor laundry. Bathrooms very nice. Master bath on second floor has separate shower and soaking tub, dual sinks. Towels were abundant and of a good quality similar to what you'd find in a Hampton Inn (mid-range, white, absorbent and fluffy). Bedrooms all on second floor with comfortable beds and plenty of storage space. MBR spacious with wall of windows and large deck, as well as a "crow's nest" loft . You can see the river from the second floor deck/MBR and the loft area. First floor had open living area with connected living and family rooms, and kitchen. Comfortable seating and flat screen TV. Books and magazines. Nice deck off kitchen, with dining table/chairs, good lighting and suspended wooden swinging bench. Gas grill located in small, but beautifully landscaped, fenced back yard. Back yard open to one next door neighbor whose property is professionally landscaped to blend -- very nicely done. Neighbors on all sides quiet and we rarely saw them. The covered front porch was cute and comfortable, with a couple of white rockers. Blinds and curtains for privacy on all windows except stairwell. Ceiling fans everywhere kept the house comfortable along with up-to-date central air and heat. We really appreciated that the owner was quite prompt in responding to our last minute request for accommodation and very easy to work with. Provided good instructions. Owner was easily available via phone/text. Highly recommend this home with super nice owners and would definitely stay again. Love the beaches, orchards (Dutch Farm Market and Crane's) , cute shops and restaurants, friendly people, "walkability", and nice, down-home atmosphere of South Haven. Nearby towns and beaches we also enjoyed visiting included Saugatuck and St. Joseph. Just a beautiful area"
