Our stay was wonderful! The house was clean and exactly how it was presented - but there were so many more extras that really made the stay. The owners have clearly thought about how to make a great stay for families with kids - the outdoor space was wonderful and equipped with swings and outdoor toys my kids loved. Inside was no different - toys, games and both a pack and play and a booster (we didn't use but a great detail!) The rooms were comfortable and my kids loved the bunk beds! Nightlights and fans throughout the home were a super nice detail. It was a comfortable walk to the Kid's Corner playground (my kids loved) and the beach entrance there is great as well. We didn't walk to downtown but could have (and driving was easy enough - especially since we were there in the off season. I can imagine traffic being more difficult in season.) South Haven itself is a joy - beautiful beaches and still warm enough to be out and even swimming in late September (it was cold but my kids could care less!). We truly enjoyed our stay - we definitely would stay in this home again!

Really just a perfect Labor Day weekend. The house was super close to town and walking distance to south beach although we spent most of our time at the north beach. Absolutely would stay again it was lovely.

This house worked great for our family. It was very clean and had great amenities, a few not listed like the swing set which was a big hit and an awesome back yard!

We take a family vacation once a year with our adult children and grandbabies. This beautiful house was just perfect for us. Anything we could have wanted was there for us to use and the location was great!! It was a comfortable home away from home for us.

It's an AWSOME home to stay in. You want for nothing. The owners have put a lot of time thinking of everything to make sure you have what you need to keep busy. I would rent it again in a heartbeat

What a lovely home! This was the best stocked home I've ever rented; even had toys and books for the kids as well as a collapsible wagon for beach transport. Would definitely return. Even the neighbors were friendly.

What an outstanding vacation home! It was everything we could have asked for and more! Jaqua realtors was very accommodating. The home was gorgeous with a fully equipped kitchen. It was spotless. There were little touches that made it feel like home- plenty of extra towels, night lights everywhere, toys and games, as well as books to enjoy. It was comfortable and felt like a home away from home. Walkable to restaurants and the beach! We also enjoyed a day at the Dutch Village in Holland. We used the pack n play and booster seat! 10/10 would definitely stay here again
