house rental amenities

For almost thirty years our aim has been to enhance, without losing the charm that distinguishes our "cottage" from just another vacation rental home.  Instead of cable television we provide you with movies from our DVD library and high speed wireless access. There's even XM satellite radio throughout.  Our family grows closer by spending winter weekends and lazy summer vacations sunbathing at the beach, shopping & dining downtown, riding bikes, playing games, reading, and simply socializing together.  For us South Haven is a place to relax and not only step back from our busy lives, but actually step back a little in time.  We take turns washing the dishes by hand and the laundry is done after we return home.  Most days find the windows open to the breeze but there are excellent window air conditioning units for the occasional heat wave.  

In the private back yard you are invited to cook on the gas grill, lounge in the hammock, or enjoy games of badminton and croquet.  The back deck is a perfect gathering spot for family and friends.  We encourage guests to also enjoy the many books, puzzles, and board games we've collected over the years.  Also, as we have not child proofed our cottage we ask that any children be well behaved.  We want all of our guests to feel at home and to care for it as if it was theirs.

Provided for you: 

As mentioned there are 3 bedrooms & 1 bath:  1 queen and 2 fulls.  6 person maximum.  Please no smoking inside and no pets.

  • All Bedding (we use Duvet Covers & Shams that are laundered between each guest so that all bedding is fresh and clean!).
  • Soft white Bath towels, hand towels, washcloths, and bath mat.  
  • Beach towels.
  • Hairdryer, Iron & Ironing Board.
  • Kitchen is fully equipped with everything you should need including microwave and coffee maker. 
  • Gas Grill off the back deck. 
  • Private back yard.
  • High Speed Wireless Internet, XM radio, DVD/CD player.

traveler reviews for this south haven house rental

Best cottage experience ever

Review submitted: July 16, 2012   Date of arrival: July 6, 2012

This cottage was the best I've ever had the pleasure of staying in. With a child and an elderly mother with limited mobility, I could not have asked for better accommodations. You need nothing but your own clothing and food, everything else is provided including beach towels, beach chairs, umbrella, beach toys, coolers. There was even sunburn ointment in the bathroom for us to use. It was truly a home away from home where you can focus on relaxing and enjoying your vacation. The beach was a very short walk and was never crowded or overly noisy. The owner left a convenient binder with a lot of useful information about the area. The home was well kept, clean and extremely charming. We sat on the deck in the evenings and the swing on the front porch in the mornings. Awesome. Worth every penny.

Lovely cottage, close to beach

Review submitted: September 4, 2011   Date of arrival: August 26, 2011

This beautifully decorated cottage comfortably accommodates three couples. It is the most completely appointed vacation rental I've ever found. The kitchen has everything, including the salt and pepper--just bring your own food! There is a gas grill and a nice deck with lots of chairs and a table for dining. The yard is picture perfect, with a shed full of beach toys, chairs, and yard games. It is a very short walk to the beach! It's an excellent value with a perfect location. It's also an easy bike ride into the darling town of South Haven, which has excellent restaurants, a movie theater and a fantastic farmer's market.

Darling get away home

Review submitted: August 7, 2011   Date of arrival: July 29, 2011

My family and I enjoyed our stay in South Haven at the Banner Cottage. This was just a hop, skip and a jump to a private beach and just a mile from town.I would highly recommend this to anyone that is looking for a fun and relaxing getaway from this fast paced world we live in. It actually took time for my kids to adjust to no access to cable television but in the end it made us realize how much we miss out on quality family time with things we take advantage of in our every day lives. There were so many things to do. Anything from shopping in South Haven to the Dune Rides in Saugatuck. A lot of restaurants in town to choose from but expect to wait. The owner of the banner was more than helpful with assisting us on local attractions and made us feel very welcome in their home. Had a wonderful time.
