traveler reviews for this south haven house rental

Guestbook Comment

Review submitted: July 19, 2007   Date of arrival: July 1, 2007

15 (8 adults, 7 kids) of us stayed at the house over Memorial Weekend 2007. We had a wonderful weekend. There was lots for everyone to do: pool, hot tub, swingset and sand box in the backyard, and the house was stocked with games and toys. This was the perfect place to stay with so many people! We didn't feel crowded and still had 2 extra bedrooms. The house was very clean and well stocked with needed items. South Haven was a nice, quaint community to visit. We enjoyed the beach, public playground, the shops, etc. We would definitely like to return for a visit in the future.

A perfect Winter Wonderland!

Review submitted: January 9, 2014   Date of arrival: December 23, 2013

We could not have chosen a more perfect location to spend our first Christmas away from home in thirty six years! The Ice House is large, roomy, yet cozy and inviting. We were greeted by a lit Christmas tree in the living room (which was one of the items I was concerned about leaving at home) and a huge kitchen, which was great because we spent our entire time in the house because of the weather/driving conditions. We were able to do lots of food prep/cooking without getting in each other's way! To our delight, we had our own Santa (Jim, the owner) who attended to our every anticipated need, even though he was on vacation with his family. My grand daughter was able to frolic in the snow filled backyard, play on the snow covered playground equipment, and enjoy the numerous games and toys that had been tucked away in one of the first floor closets. There were cribs, highchairs, every thing needed to accommodate parents traveling with young kids. Yet, the location of the three and a half baths was perfect for all of us seniors! The house is clean, well maintained and by all reviews, the beds were extremely comfortable. My husband wanted to take one of the mattresses home! Jim supplied us with the best customer service we have received in a very long time - before, during and after our stay! I would highly recommend this location and any other location owned by the Havliks. It was our first attempt at a vacation like this, and I look forward to doing more business with Jim in the future.

Nice place to stay with lots of room and extra

amenities. Owner is very helpful and

accommodating. I have rented large homes all

over the US. This was one of the best

experiences for my extended family.
