vacation rental description

Relax and unwind the minute you enter our spacious and lovely home stocked with every amenity you might need to enjoy your holiday.  Parkway Retreat is located in a restful, wooded setting with a private association beach.  Stroll to the wide, sandy beach that goes for miles.  Enjoy the sunset with a glass of wine or build a bonfire (both not allowed on town beaches).  Lounge on the front porch, upper deck or back patio and enjoy views of the professionally landscaped yard and surrounding forest with deer, foxes, and wild turkeys.  Parkway Retreat sits on four lots, so there is plenty of room for a game of badminton, horseshoes or bean bag toss (provided).  You can also walk to South Haven Golf Course.  

Parkway Retreat has plenty of room for two families.  There are 4 bedrooms - two with queen beds and two with two twin beds each.  There is also a sleeper sofa in the upstairs lounge.  There are 2 1/2 bathrooms and an outdoor, heated shower to wash off from the beach.  Adults and kids can enjoy some "alone" time with two separate sitting/TV areas. The downstairs has open plan kitchen, dining and living areas.  The dining table seats 8 with another 4 chairs at the kitchen peninsula.  The home has central air conditioning.

Parkway Retreat is located off of Blue Star Highway between South Haven and Saugatuck-Douglas.  Our location allows you to enjoy all of the local activities, with the option to escape the summertime crowds when you're ready to relax.

We are happy to provide suggestions on activities and restaurants suited to your interests and tastes.  A local concierge service is also available to address any service needs with the home or provide babysitters (extra charge).  We love our home and the area and we're sure you will too!

Sorry, but our home is not available for weekend-only rentals during summer, renters under the age of 25 unaccompanied by a parent, or large parties/events.

traveler reviews for this south haven house rental

Our July 2013 Visit

Review submitted: August 17, 2013   Date of arrival: July 26, 2013

This house was perfect for our summer family vacation. We had a great time; there were nine of us. The owner was very responsive to questions. The kitchen is well stocked; all you need to do is add food. The garage was well stocked with fire pit, wagons, chairs, etc. We brought our own bicycles and had plenty of storage in the garage for them. It's a nice quiet area to let younger kids bike around.

We love the South Haven area. There's so much to do with kids - sand dune tours, berry/fruit picking, beaches with playgrounds, etc. It's a charming community.

We mostly stayed in for our meals, but did visit Clementines, which has excellent food.

I would recommend the property.

Parkway Retreat in South Haven

Review submitted: July 16, 2013   Date of arrival: July 7, 2013

We loved the property. The house was had everything we would need for a week stay and more. The kitchen was well stocked in cookware even beach toys and towels.

We were surprised about the distance to the beach and the amount of steps down to the water.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway

Owners response: Our home is located in a private subdivision approximately 5 minutes walk from the community beach access. We supply wagons to pull belongings as well as bicycles to ride. Between South Haven and Saugatuck the beach sits at the bottom of a bluff so there are stairs to the beach. Our extended family, including grandparents and young children, uses the stairs without difficulty. However, if anyone has serious mobility issues and wants to access the beach, a location in town may be a better choice.

Weekend stay

Review submitted: May 1, 2013   Date of arrival: October 19, 2012

Description of property very accurate. Cleanliness and maintenance excellent. Very comfortable surroundings. Felt like home. Lots to see and do in the area. Loved the wine tasting! Beach was very nice. Liked that it was private beach access from this property. Neighborhood was very nice and people were friendly. Close to South Haven. Could ride a bike into town if so inclined.
