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 South Haven

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 Place for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I brought our daughter, son-in-law and 3-year-old grandson for four days. The location was PERFECT; quiet neighborhood, one block from a very nice park/playground and one block from the beach! Plus, within walking distance of downtown South Haven. The house was more than big enough for the five of us, and having the choice of charcoal or gas grills was awesome! Our grandson enjoyed the nice play area outside that was shaded part of the day and the use of beach toys that Chris provides. Lots of toys/games inside helped us to pass the time when we wanted a break from Lake Michigan. All in all, a wonderful time! I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Awesome House and Location for Families with Kids

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at BeachPark Place this past September. The house was perfect- we loved the outdoor deck and fire pit and the huge kitchen table and living space. There was more than enough room for 2 families with kids and we liked the numerous sleeping options. Do not worry about packing toys or games! There were so many things to keep our kids entertained in the house including books, beach toys and even strollers!

Location was perfect. Steps to the fantastic kids park and beach and a short walk to shops and restaurants.

Owner Chris was extremely easy to work with. Thanks for a great vacation! We will be back!

Fantastic house and location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! Absolutely perfect location for our 3 families with big kids (ages 13-28). Our kids were constantly walking or riding bikes downtown or going to the beach. South Haven has a lot of shopping and restaurants, we were never bored. The house itself was clean, comfortable and well suited to our needs. It is BEAUTIFULLY landscaped with a great deck and brick paver area. The owner was quick to respond to all of our questions and we had no trouble at all renting. We would love to return to this house!

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!
