traveler reviews for this south haven house rental

Perfect Location!

Review submitted: February 28, 2013   Date of arrival: May 31, 2012

This was the perfect location! Close to the beach, close to the farmers market and all the shops downtown. Parked the car and walked pretty much anywhere we wanted to go. The house was cute, clean and had everything we needed for our stay. We got some wonderful fresh fruits and veggies at the farmers market. South haven is such a quaint town with a beautiful harbor. Loved walking the beautiful sand beach, and sitting on the pier watching all the different kinds of boats go in and out of the channel. We took a sunset cruise on the historic fishing tug the Elsie J., and got to view the town and coastline from the water ( a MUST do!) We loved South Haven and our stay at the Captain's Cottage! Shelly, Mark and family.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: I am so pleased that you found Captain's Cottage to be so enjoyable! We are indeed fortunate to be in South Haven!

Great home away from home

Review submitted: February 27, 2013   Date of arrival: February 1, 2013

We have enjoyed this cottage both in the summer and winter. The location is great. Just three blocks from steps leading down to the beach of Lake Michigan. You are close to shopping, dining, hiking, biking, you name it. The house is well kept and comfortable, great for two couples. You can dine out or cook your own meals in the equipped kitchen.

Owners response: Thank you for the kind words!

Weekend stay

Review submitted: September 20, 2012   Date of arrival: September 14, 2012

We began our weekend adventure in Kalamazoo at the Kal-Haven County Park Trail head. We had packed on our bicycles all that we would need for staying the weekend in South Haven. Since I and my two fellow cyclists are not campers, we had made arrangements to stay at this rental Property. We biked about 13 mIles to Gobles where we had delicious sandwiches at Mancinos and then continued to South Haven.
The Property is in a perfect location - close to town and the Lake Michigan beach. This made it convenient to bike ride or walk every where we wanted to go, especially good since we did not have a car! The house was nice and clean with spacious rooms, comfy beds, and a lovely quiet backyard.
We enjoyed downtown shopping at the quaint stores, a night time walk out on the breakway, and lounging on the beach. Sunday we returned to the bike path and headed back. We biked a total of 76 miles and had a wonderful time. Not bad for three ladies all 50+ years old :)

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, tourists without a car, romantic getaway
