About Gary and Kim

Fun loving owners with two loving dogs

Gary and Kim purchased this house in 2014

Why Gary and Kim chose Southwest Michigan

We bought our home in SoHa after spending many years traveling up and down western Michigan. We fell in love with the town and it's wonderful beaches- perfect sand with manageable crowds. We know you will also love this warm and inviting town and area.

What makes this house unique

1920's home that has been completely renovated-- new kitchen, bathrooms, new beds/linens and completely stocked. The home is located just 4 blocks from the beach and 3 blocks to downtown South Haven.

South Haven Get-A-Way

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here but also traveled to Saugatuck and Holland. It's not too far to the roads we needed to get there, so that was a plus. It was close to South Haven's downtown but I wouldn't say within walking distance especially if you have young children. We didn't have to much trouble with parking until the weekend. The house is cute and well decorated. There is a window air conditioner in the upstairs bedroom which doesn't show in the pictures but works great. Please note that the stairs to the master bedroom are typical of a home of this age and since it isn't actually a full two story home the roof line on the second floor may be a hazard for anyone over 5' 7". I love older homes so this wasn't an issue for me. We weren't able to use the outdoor space because of the bugs but with Lake Michigan so close it wasn't an issue. Overall we were very happy with our choice. If you want a place to stay in South Haven with space for several people and you love the charm of an older home, this is an excellent choice!

Nice property in beautiful South Haven

  • 4 of 5

This house worked well for our family of 6. It was clean and well kept. We were able to walk a few blocks to town easily. South beach was about 6 blocks away if you take the stairs down. South beach is nice but very crowded especially with a good portion of the beach washed away. We ended up driving to north beach several times because there is much more room to set up your stuff and the beach is far rider. For us it was not problem to drive down and drop the crew off with gear and then park back at the house and take the 1/2 hour walk back. But it is about half hour walk at a good pace and would not be easy with chairs umbrella and cooler

We were slightly disappointed that there were no swings on the swingset as we have a toddler who would have enjoyed them. Grill was in ok condition as was patio set. Kitchen could have had a few more items like large cutting boards and plastic ziplocs for leftovers but overall had what we needed. We mostly ate out and leftovers as there are lots good places in town and surrounding towns. Meijer is closeby so we were able to get groceries at reasonable prices. TV has basic cable and it was good to have wireless access as well as laundry facilities.

4th of july week was busy during the holiday and it was fun to go to fireworks and parade. Rest of the week was not as crowded as I imagined which was nice so we didn't have long waits at resturants. Can't go wrong with South Haven in the summer!

This was a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The property was great. It is just a couple of blocks from downtown. Great location. The property was super clean and well stocked. Games, books, kitchen had it all. The kitchen and bathrooms had very nice features/upgrades. The fenced in yard also made it a wonderful vacation for our dog. We hope to be able to stay here again for our next trip to South Haven. My whole family really loved this property!
