Good House for three generations.
This was a family vacation for my husband and I and our four grown children, 3 sons-in-law and nine grandchildren. We rented this house and part of the family stayed at another house. I stayed at this house along with my husband; a disabled son who is a full time wheelchair user; my daughter and her husband; and their four young children. All together there were nine of us in the house. It worked very well for us. While the house advertised itself as not accessible for people with disabilities, it was adequate for our son. There were just a few steps to enter the house, and a bedroom and a full bath on the first level. We brought Aero-beds for two of the kids to sleep on the floor in a roomy upstairs bedroom. The kitchen had everything I needed to cook with. I only wish there had been a dish washer and a garbage disposal. The back yard was just right for the kids. We enjoyed cooking outdoors on the grill and toasting hot dogs and marshmallows over a fire in the fire pit. There was space for the kids to run and play, and they played croquet with the croquet set we found in the basement. The house was in a good location, and the whole family had a wonderful time taking the kids to Kids Corner and South Beach. We also watched the sun set over the lake at Kid's Corner. The house was a good deal for the price and, we would like to come back some day.
First time renters with family
Overall it was a good experience. Everyone was comfortable and enjoyed the vacation. I was concerned with the Pit Bull in back of the house. I am not a fan of large dogs. So I am glad we did not bring my son's dog. The location was good but we did drive to the beach and the town because of our large group. I wish I had found the inflatable mattress sooner because the chair beds were small. Weather was great. Quiet neighborhood.
Thanks so much for your review, MJ! I'm so glad you and your family enjoyed the house an your vacation in South Haven!
I just want to point out that our backyard is fully fenced in with a privacy fence and there are no dogs in sight in our backyard. A few of our neighbors do have dogs, but you can't see them unless you look over the fence.
Adequate home, nicely furnished kitchen - we could have used a few more mugs forcoffee
Home was not at the level of cleanliness that I had expected. It was okay and we "made do" but I was disappointed with the overall property, although there were plenty of towels and bed linens. Unfortunately we had to reset the fusebox many times. I would not choose this location again - sorry.
Thanks so much for your thoughtful review! I'm sorry to hear that our home wasn't cleaned to your satisfaction, we have discussed this with our house cleaners and they have assured us that this will not be an issue moving forward. We have also purchased more coffee mugs and had an electrician out to rectify the situation.
Great vacation home!
Great place to take a vacation in South Haven to enjoy the beach and town!
Lake House Near Lake Michigan .....
We stayed in the Lake House near lake Michigan which was about a 10 minute walk to the blue stairs near Kids Korner Park. Location to the beach was nice and convenient.
The neighbors were friendly and checked in with us to see if we needed anything.
The house is older and found it comfortable; but lacking in some conveniences most travelers are looking.. The home is equipped with a washer & dryer in the basement; however renters must provide laundry detergent and fabric softener. The basement is damp and musty... mainly due to the age of the home.
The home has 3 bedrooms, 2 on the upper level. One has a closet; which was locked. And the other does not have a closet. So we found there was minimal storage for our clothing and personal items. The upstairs has 2 bedrooms which share a bathroom located in the upstairs hall. The bathroom has been updated with a new tile floor, vanity and showerhead. The bedroom on the first floor has 2 queen beds and a closet. It is located adjacent to the hall bathroom on the main floor; however has not been updated. Bath bar soap was not provided; there was liquid hand soap by each sink.
The kitchen has newer cabinets and adequate storage. We were disappointed not to have a dishwasher or garbage disposal. We didn't read the listing close enough!
TV.. if you're looking to watch live sports... the Basic TV coverage is minimal having only local channels. We were hoping to watch The Open but the cable channels were not on the owner's subscription. There is one TV in the home on the first floor. There is a nice selection of DVD's and some books for your use too.
We loved Michigan weather and found it ideal for grilling. The home has a large deck and it is a nice place to hang out in the evening. We used the grill several times as the evenings were a delightful temperature.
Nice, spacious house
Nice house with lots of space! Short drive to many attractions in South Haven: beach, Kids Corner and downtown!
Minutes away from some great wineries, breweries and casinos!
