Updated: Jul 11, 2016
Charming 2 bedroom refurbished summer Bungalow

A charming home located on the South side in an older South Haven neighborhood with plenty of off street parking. This home has two queen size beds and two very comfortable sleeper sofas. The floor plan is open and airy with plenty of space for every one and very comfortable. There is a small deck off the back and a very well stocked kitchen that has most of your kitchen comforts. The dining room table seats 8. A gas grill and a charcoal grill is located right off the deck. The front porch is perfect for that good book or a cold beer. This home is located six blocks from downtown and four blocks to Kids Corner and the South Beach. Wifi and cable included. Several bikes available to tour the town and beaches. This Summer getaway home never disappoints.

About the Owner

I have been coming to South Haven for 54 years. My mother still lives there. Her home was purchased in 1960 and my family summered there. I can honestly say there is really no place quite like South Haven. I live in Kalamazoo and work for a big pharmaceutical company with a very busy schedule. This is such a nice fit for my down time.

Comfortable and pet friendly.

  • 5 of 5

Great location for walks to the beach or downtown. Home is well maintained, spacious and has room for everyone to relax in their own space. Owner is very accommodating and easy to work with. We will definitely stay here again next time to get to South Haven!!

Cute & Cozy inside, awesome location

  • 4 of 5

Cut & Cozy was truly cute and cozy inside. It is kept clean. Charmingly decorated, with a surprising amount of living space to spread out. We could dine in the back room off the kitchen and our kids could spread their projects on the dining table and all over the front porch. Comfy couches. Biggest kitchen I've had in a rental--fridge, full stove and oven, dishwasher, all dishes and utensils.

Beds, towels, and linens were fine, lots of fans provided.

One of the best parts was that we could easily walk to two different parks and to the beach. The kids could play at Kids Corner while we sat on the benches overlooking the water, and we could go back and forth between the beach and park easily. (Bathrooms and water fountain at the park).

Bikes are provided, but we didn't end up using them. Also a moveable fire pit.

Owner was very relaxed and easy to work with.

Some thoughts: This is not for you if you are expecting immaculate, 5-star, or complete seclusion--I think the previous reviewer was expecting too much. It is well-cleaned, but it's an older house, so it doesn't have a new-hotel smell--the slight mustiness goes away with open windows and fans. The bathroom doesn't have a fan, which is probably why the previous reviewer mentioned mold. There is a tiny bit along the window, but definitely not something I had to scrub at! Mostly the bathroom is very clean. You will have all the dishes, cups, utensils you can possibly need, but they won't be matched sets. The appliances are older model. But you're in a great spot, with everything you need. Probably the most alarming thing to some people will be that one of the houses next door is in poor repair and has two large dogs. Just remember, this is South Haven, and you are safe, even if a neighbor isn't keeping up their property. The dogs do bark some, but it wasn't "all night" like the previous reviewer claimed. Most of the time they were quiet, and only one night they barked occasionally until pretty late. This isn't something the owner can help, but good to know what to expect.

Overall, we had a delightful vacation, and really enjoyed having Cozy and Comfortable as our home base.

Great Pet Friendly House

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay in South Haven. This house allowed us to bring our dogs with us on vacation. We enjoyed being close to town but not too close. We enjoyed having the bikes to be able to ride each night. The owner was always available to answer any questions we may have. Thanks for a great relaxing get a way.

Labor Day Getaway- great and gracious owner

  • 5 of 5

We head to south haven every year but needed additional housing as our 20+ person clan keeps growing. We were very happy to find Mike's place as he was extremely accommodating and went above and beyond to make our stay a good one. Additionally, he is pet friendly which is great because I hate to leave my pup behind. This house is quaint, charming and clean. This neighborhood is more locals than tourists and everyone was friendly. If you're looking for a reasonably priced south haven getaway (not far from the beach) this is the place!

Renter Beware!

  • 2 of 5

It was great that Mike allows pets...but neighboring dogs barked all night. The beds are very uncomfortable and mattresses move every time you do. Had to scrub the bathroom black mold on ceiling and around tub. Furniture in the living area is outdoor furniture with homemade cushions....very uncomfortable. Also mixed neighborhood.

Owner's Response: With over 60 rental bookings, this is my first complaint. I meet all of my tenants and walk them through the home always asking if they see any problems. I did the same with you. My home and work phone numbers are provided in the event there is an issue. You never called me. It is unfortunate that you didn't as I said I am always available if there is an issue. With over 50% of my bookings being multi-year renewing tenants, I must be doing something right. I'm sorry you were disappointed. As a property owner, we want everyone to have a great time.

Relaxing family trip

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable home with everything a family and a dog need. Great location, close to town and the beach. Enjoyed the front porch, back deck, the grills and firepits. Mike, the homeowner could not have been easier to work with. Responded to emails and phone calls quickly, was very knowledgeable about the area and happy to answer questions and make recommendations. Made us feel at home. We have stayed at this home twice and plan to return.
