About Frank Finken/owner- Julie McPherson/Property Manager
At the time the house was purchased in 2002 the house was in poor shape and needed serious improvement. During the reconstruction papers were found dating back to 1872 in the walls. At the time I was working in Law Enforcement, and I along with my wife we came in from the east side of the state almost every weekend until the house was finished for that first summer. Since I retired in 2011, I have begun my transition to fulfill what I set out to do and that was to reside in the town, be more hands on, available and accountable in providing my investments in the community as I did in my career. I am here more and I am enjoying the change of pace as to what was, and is now my town to enjoy.

Why Frank Finken/owner- Julie McPherson/Property Manager chose South Haven
This home purchase was a great investment in an area that we fell in love with the town and the way of life. We enjoyed coming here ourselves, so we took the plunge not only to be used for others to enjoy but for our family too from time to time. The location was ideal located perfectly a three short blocks from downtown, four from the Lake, we parked and walked everywhere. It was a challenge to restore which was truly a labor of love. The plan was to set our roots and lay down the foundation for the future.

Family fun in a charming house
Kids and adults loved the location and assortment of treasures in this house! The outside does not belie the rooms it holds, and it was perfect for our crew. Enough space to escape for privacy, esp front porch or back patio. And dining space available for a large crew. We especially loved watching the parade from our the front yard and short walk to Farmer's Market.
Property was convenient for Beach and up town South Haven,Mi. It was very comfortable.
Thank you for taking the time to comment. Glad it was comfortable for you and your guests, we sure tried to create that atmosphere for our guest's vacation. Thank you for taking such good care of our home. I hope you consider returning to South Haven.
Not what we expected!
We have rented from VrBO for years and this was our least favorite.
Several overhead lights out. The back door wouldn’t shut much less lock. The flower beds were overgrown covering the walk way. This is not a good place for young children or older adults, due to many split floor levels. Dining table only accommodates 4 with 2 at bar yet the accommodations say up to 10. Yes there is outdoor eating but not always an option. Water pressure in front bath very low. The pictures look good but ...The air conditioner worked great.
We noted in our house book with contact numbers to always notify us if anything is noticed to be repaired. Would have gladly made a trip over, do not live that far, to have fixed the door especially and the lightbulb. Noticed and addressed by our cleaning crew after the extensive cleaning from your stay, it was a pretty easy fix. You had our number, I spoke with you to let you know the house was available earlier than expected since you were driving in from a distance. Glad to hear the air conditioning worked well during those Hot days. It does sleep up to 10 comfortably in the four bedrooms. Sorry to hear now this was not a good fit for your large group 6 adults, three children and many vehicles. Glad you were able to find parking for them. Thank you for taking out your garbage.

Thanks Pat! Glad to have all of you back again! Let me know if I can accommodate you again.
Friendly owners, clean, and GREAT location!
My family and I stayed for a long weekend and loved it! The house is so cute, homey, and clean! It is also conveniently located within walking distance to downtown and the beach. The owners are responsive and kind. We will absolutely be returning!
Thank you! Nice meeting everyone. Glad you had a great time!
We really enjoyed our stay at this home! Everything was clean and the owners were very thoughtful in their suggestions for activities around town.
Thank you for your rating and kind words. It was a pleasure and thank you again for taking such good care since I was under a crunch getting ready for my holiday. Hope you consider returning.
