Our guests love the 'right size' house which is ideal for 2-3 families. 2 sitting rooms, a huge dining table, plus the well shaded deck (and adjacent patio) are much appreciated. Guests also like that 3 of the bedrooms have Queen size Serta pillow-top mattress sets!

About Chris Dolan

My wife, 2 kids, and I live in Flossmoor, a suburb of Chicago. Our family had been vacationing in South Haven for years prior to us purchasing 'BeachPark Place'. We just love the South Beach area. Close to the beach yet an easy walk into town. When not busy communicating with guests I work for Philips Lighting, coach soccer, and am active in our church.

Chris Dolan purchased this house in 2007

Why Chris Dolan chose Southwest Michigan

If you read the review you will get a sense of why people love our house. If you don't want to read the's a combination of the location and the house itself. People really like that inside we have 2 distinct sitting areas. The kids tend to gather in the back room closer to the games and books. Guests LOVE our big dining table that can accommodate their entire group. They like that 3 bedrooms have queen size beds. They appreciate all the games, toys, and books in the house.

Outside, folks like the big shaded deck and the adjacent patio. They like that the back yard is fenced in... and that we have a warm water outdoor shower for rinsing off the sand.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We loved it. The location was perfect. It was very kid/family friendly. All needs were anticipated! We liked the big dining room table, toy area, and the multiple bedrooms. Nice deck.

Great property - great location

Our family had a great time at this property. Lots of beds, nice fire pit, and rear deck. It was lovely - and so close to the Kids Corner park and to the beach!

Very spacious house, close to beach & Kids Corner

  • 5 of 5

Our family (6 adults and 3 kids and an infant) love the location, close to the beach and Kids Corner. We found the family room to be an extra bonus, it was a great place for the kids to play and watch TV. The house was very well equipped with everything we needed, including beach toys and a stroller. We plan on returning in 2017 for another great week at Beach Park Place!

Perfect family cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have rented in South Haven for years, and this home provided the best layout, indoor and out. The ample bedrooms made it easy for kids and adults to share the space, and we all enjoyed the deck and firepit in the evening. Kid's Corner was so close we could let the bigger kids go out on their own. Some of us even found a "quiet" moment on the front porch to read :) Thanks for a great vacation spot!

Awesome location and great house!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome location! 3 minute walk to the beach and lake, 1 minute walk to the playground for the kids, 10 minute walk to Downtown, 15 minute drive to Meijer. 4 different types of restaurants, 2 bakery's, 2 ice cream shops, all different kinds of shopping and Night Life.

Awesome House! Gas barbeque was great, grilling seafood, steaks, burgers, brats. Kitchen was great, refrigerator was big enough to hold food for 12 people. House is big enough to where you didn't feel like you were falling over each other. We had enough room at the dinner table for all of us. We were even able to catch a Tiger game and NASCAR Race.

Awesome Owner! Great communication, responsive, on time with everything stated in contract.

I would rent from again in the same location and house.

Charming house close to the lake

  • 4 of 5

My family (6 adults and 3 kids under 5) rented this charming house for a week in July. The house was very comfortable for us all. The bedrooms were spacious and the back family room was nice for the kids to hang out and watch movies. The house is an easy walk to the beach access and the kiddie playground was less than a block away. We found the kitchen to be very well stocked and the outside grills (gas and charcoal) were great. We used the fire pit several nights and the kids enjoyed s'mores a few times. The house comes with a wagon and jogging stroller which were nice to haul kids and stuff to the beach. We had a very nice week and would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for a comfortable and relaxing week in South Haven.

beach park place: great house/ location

  • 4 of 5

Beach Park place was the perfect pick for our family. The house was clean and spacious. The beach playground and town were all within easy walking distance. The house has been updated very nicely. We enjoyed the deck and outdoor space. We were surprised at all of the games books and kid's toys that were provided. Very handy for a cool rainy day. I have recommended the house and South Haven to many friends. The owners were very helpful and responded to all correspondence quickly.
