About Carolyn Slone
This house compliments our other weekly rental at 704 Kalamazoo.
Carolyn Slone purchased this House in 2013
Why Carolyn Slone chose South Haven
South Haven has an awesome beach and is only a 2 hour drive from Chicago. Metro Detroit are only 2-3 hours away, so it is a great midwestern resort location. 2 bicycles are included with the rental!
What makes this House unique
The Broadway House is remarkable for the size of its rooms. It has a huge dining room that easily seats 14 at it's table. It also has a living room and a large, separate T.V./game room with new leather sectional which is great for watching T.V. without bothering the people in the dining room and living room. Upstairs there is a bonus T.V. room with a day bed in it that is perfect for children. These spaces allow the house to accommodate a crowd easily, with lots of space for everyone to come together or find a quiet space apart. It also has an expansive rear deck with grill, tables and chairs, and picnic table for al fresco dining. The old fashioned front porch is covered.
Pack 'n' plays, crib, and high chairs available.
Minimum age of primary renter:25
No open fires or fireworks are allowed anywhere in the yard or property. Violators will be evicted and/or forfeit their entire security deposit.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Awesome for kids!
This was our 5th summer to stay in South Haven but our first time with a bigger party. The house had plenty of room for 5 adults and 8 kids. At least 3 of the bedrooms comfortably fit a pack-n-play and luggage with plenty of room to spare! Lots of room for adults and kids to relax/play. The location wasn’t quite as close to the beach as would be nice for walking with younger children but the fenced in back yard with the heated pool, sandbox, and swing set more than made up for that! The owner was excellent to communicate with and quickly addressed a couple small items that came up during our stay. We would definitely come again!
We are very happy the house worked out for your group. Our team works hard to keep the house the best it can be for extended family groups, and we pride ourselves on being responsive. Glad you noticed!
Great place for family gathering
Had a very nice stay here, especially enjoying the deck and pool. Property manager very easy to work with. Large dining room table was great for our large group, and kitchen was also very nice. Highly recommend.
We are very glad the house and yard worked well for your group. Our entire team works hard to make it as good as it can be for each group.
Great house for family get-away
This was a great place for our family (parents, children & grandchildren) to gather. The house was clean and nicely furnished; the bedrooms were comfortable and had nice dressers so you could unpack your suitcases. The TV/game room (separate from the living room) was nice as a separate (and quiet) sitting or breakfast room, and noise from there was not audible in the bedrooms.
Two of the bedrooms with Queen beds each had a trundle bed & a set of bunk beds and were great for the families in our group; also the crib, pack-n-play and two highchairs were perfect for us.
Although the kitchen countertop was a little small for our large group (10 adults, 6 children) the storage rack in the back entry area was great. We appreciated some of the grocery items left in the cupboards! Wonderful to have a few spices, olive oil, sugar, etc. on hand. Loved having the washer & dryer, and second refrigerator.
The manager and maintenance person were very responsive; the maintenance person came to fix a couple of minor things promptly (one of those being a corner of the outdoor awning had torn loose in the wind).
Loved the small outdoor pool; it was great, especially for the youngest children to cool off, play & get more comfortable in the water; and pool toys were provided. Although the pool ladder was flimsy, it was adequate; it rotated & latched in an upward position to prevent children from accessing pool without an adult present. The swing set/slide was nice, a good spot for little ones. We appreciated the gated backyard, to keep the children safely contained & it also provided a safe place to store our bikes. Also we enjoyed the outdoor deck and table for dining, games & conversation.
The beach and the marvelous Kids Park playground were easy to bike to, on quiet neighborhood streets.
We enjoyed our week at the Broadway house and we would consider gathering there again.
We are gald you enjoyed your vacation at the Broadway House. Our entire crew works hard to keep the house the best it can be for the whole season, and to be responsive when the occasional items arises. We hope you come back again next year.
Great stay in South Haven
Great rental with lots of room for multiple families. The back yard is a great set up for families with little ones! It’s a short walk downtown to all the ships and restaurants!
Glad you enjoyed the house and location.
Broadway House - A Big Hit
The Broadway House was a big hit with our family. The house was very clean, the kitchen was well-equipped and the bedrooms were roomy with comfy beds. The back yard was perfect. The adults had plenty of room on the deck to visit and watch the kids swing, swim and play in the sandbox. Lots of memories made. Thank you, Carolyn, for "this home away from home."
Thanks so much Jill for your great comments! The cleaning crew, pool guy, handyman, and I work hard all summer to make sure the house is the best it can be. We are all really happy your family vacation was excellent.
Perfect for our multi family vacation with 8 littles/babies
More amenities than advertised - kitchen items, beach toys, high chairs. Extremely kid friendly house but bring a baby gate if you have a toddler.
Our grandchildren had a marvelous time and bonded with their cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents.
The only thing I would say is the "6th bedroom" with daybed does not have any way of shading the sunlight so blinds would be helpful as found in all the other rooms.
Thanks for the kind comments and excellent suggestion Connie. I will work with the carpenter to find a way to install sun blocking blinds or shades in the 6th bedroom.
The United Pentecostal Church parking lot connects Green to Monroe street for a very pleasant walk directly to the beach.
The Kid'sCorner Park with baseball diamond, indoor bathrooms, fountains, and giant wooden playscape is 6 blocks away when you take the shortcut from our back yard. Our farmer's market is open every Saturday in South Haven's municipal parking lot downtown. Numerous fishing charters operate out of the Shouth Haven harbor. There is also fishing off of the pier. The Michigan Maritime Museum operates lake cruises on their tall masted ship 2 times a day from their dock in the harbor. They also offer tours of the harbor and Black River aboard their antique reproduction touring launch. Boat, dinghy, surf board, paddle board and kayak rentals can also be arranged in town. There are numberous golf courses in and around South Haven.
