Cute little cottage for family retreat

  • 4 of 5

This little cottage was great for our family of 3 (I originally reserved for 5 people). The house was fairly clean and had most of the basic amenities available. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils, dishes, and cookware, etc - we enjoyed being able to prepare meals and not having to eat out every night. The location is close to the beach, which was what we were looking for. Pat & Tony were very welcoming and helpful hosts. Overall we had a great and relaxing stay!

This place has it all!

Can't beat the combination of price, location, and privacy. Not to mention there were multiple beach accesses within a 5 minute walk. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks again Tony and Pat-you guys are great!

A great family vacation!

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice and clean. Enough room for our 3 adults and 2 small children. The location was good. Just a short 5 minute walk to the beach. We had a blast at the beach. The water was higher on the lake so the beach is narrow. And there are about 30 steps down to the beach. You have to cross a street but that was no problem not much traffic. The house is behind another cottage. You park in front and walk past that cottage to get to this one. The area is really nice and clean and a good neighborhood. Really not close enough to walk to town. Lots of things to do but also a nice cottage just to relax and enjoy. Tony and his wife greeted us when we arrived and was very helpful if we had questions. Didn't see him again until we were getting ready to leave. They live across the street from the cottages. A very nice couple. We had a great trip and nice accommodations.

A Plus!

  • 5 of 5

The location was great. It was very close to the beach and downtown quaint South Haven. The house was extremely clean, and so open that there wasn't any feeling of tightness . The owners are very nice and comfy talking to. We will certainly go back.

Amenities not included

  • 3 of 5

Listing said included linen- beds were hard with very outdated bedding, no hand towels in bathrooms, no washcloths or bath towels. Listing said laundry- there was no washer or dryer. No tissues, paper towels, or anything else that is normally in a house. Notes in house said renters should wash and put away dishes but no dish soap. Was fairly clean. The place had walls and a Tv with cable and wifi. That's about it

Owner's Response: We are very sorry to hear we did not meet your expectations, as we strive to provide an enjoyable experience to all of our Auntie Pat's Cottages guests. You have brought some important points to our attention, for example, we have the opportunity to improve our descriptions of what we do not provide so our new guests do not need to make inferences based on what we state we do provide. Having been in business for over twenty years, with the majority of our guests being repeat customers year after year, we sometimes forget that not everyone understands the differences between renting a cottage versus a hotel room. While we would have hoped to hear from you to clarify the location of the laundry facilities, we realize we can also improve our signage as a measure to better enable guests to find them without our assistance. We hope, despite these issues, you were able to enjoy your visit to our beautiful South Haven town!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I rented this place for a weekend and had a wonderful experience. The cottage is immaculate, comfortable, and cozy. The beach is only a block away and it is only a short drive into the downtown area. We enjoyed the shops, restaurants, and wineries nearby and also spent some time in nearby Saugatuck. The couple that own this property are very helpful and accommodating. I highly recommend this place and will certainly visit again.
