The house is very spacious and designed to optimize views of the majestic lake Michigan from several rooms on the first and second floors. There are enough bedrooms and bathrooms for even a large group of people. The kitchen is huge and equipped with high end appliances that make meal prep enjoyable for the days when you choose to cook at home. You can sit around the kitchen and dinning table to have your meal while you enjoy the breath taking views of Lake Michigan.

We had such an enjo

The bedding and bath towels were also very high end and comfortable. The house is very clean and well maintained. There is easy access to Blue star highway and yet the house feels nicely secluded and calm. It is an easy drive to Westside County Public access Beach and an equally easy drive to the both Saugutuck for dining and entertainment and South Haven for access to dining, beaches and entertainment.

My wife and I were able to schedule a long weekend at this lovely home with our twin daughters, who were off of school for Fall Break. Once we arrived, we fell in love with the property. The girls enjoyed the large backyard which leads you down a path to spectacular views of Lake Michigan. There was no access to the beach - although it is noticeable that stairs existed at some point before erosion more than likely wiped them away. (it would have been a lot of stairs to climb so we were happy with taking in the views from the bluff) We also enjoyed the privacy the home offered with a fenced in backyard.

Wildlife is all around you. Each day we saw deer on the property. This can cause some light hearted anxiety when taking the garbage out and hearing a sudden rustle of leaves.

Due to October's unpredictable weather, we brought our own board games to play with the girls. We soon realized our board games could have stayed at home and provided more room in our trunk, as a closet near the kitchen provided an ample array of games and puzzles to help keep us occupied during the cold, windy days.

The home had recently been updated with many renovations. Our favorite room was the kitchen, where we spent a considerable amount of time. The home was very comfortable and had a warm cozy vibe to it.

The proximity to downtown South Haven was another bonus. A trip into town was 5-10 minutes max. This was nice for grabbing coffee in the morning or eating lunch or dinner later in the day. We also took advantage of nature trails which were conveniently located a few miles down the road.

We had an AMAZING time! The girls have already asked when we can come back. We definitely would recommend this home for families looking for a relaxing beach getaway.

We paid for a beach house and when we arrived we discovered there was no beach and no beach access. Disappointing at best. The house is lovely but is falsely advertised. It should have been half the price.
Manager response:
Hi Robin, we appreciate your feedback. We apologize for any disappointment. This home does have a private beach. During your visit, the lake level was too high so the beach was not usable. When you got in touch with us, we let you know what was happening with the water. We also offered alternate beach locations that were still visible and offered a discount for the inconvenience. We would love to host you again in the future.

The house was very pretty
It has a great back and sunroom. Rooms were a lot smaller than expected and the extra room was in the laundry room. That kinda made me upset because you’re paying so much to have a small getaway and end up sleeping in a creepy laundry room. There was also nothing much to do in the house for the price they charge. No beach, no indoor activity games. And I felt there was information inaccuracy . It never mentioned a bed being in the laundry room. And I could not find that other room with only the double beds. There was nothing like that picture when we showed up. It was good considering our circumstances but I would not go again
Manager response:

We appreciate your feedback and hope to provide you with a more comfortable experience next visit!

The house was clean but the pots and pans were not. We had to wash everything prior to use. There is NO BEACH - even though property is advertised as having one. Instead there is a Cliff. we got the beach house so kids could play on the beach, but instead it was a huge safety hazard. We had to pack up our car everyday and haul all the stuff and kids to a public beach. Then park a ways away and haul heavy bags of food, beach towels, umbrella, etc, along with kids, from parking to an open public beach spot. Huge pain. Also the internet was so slow and intermittent- it was basically non-existent and cable wasn’t working. One of the days was pretty awful because even though the rules say quiet hours are from 10pm until 8am, the entire house was rattled awake with landscapers, who started at 5am CST and didn’t leave until after 6pm. Also the garbage cans were taken away the first night we were there and not brought back until the day we were leaving so we had to keep our dirty garbage in the hallway (we put it outside the first night and it was torn apart by animals and spread all over the property so we had to clean up yucky garbage off the lawn - gross). There is no pantry or cabinets for storage, so all dry food and snacks for the week had to sit on top of the counter making the kitchen look and feel cluttered and messy. We could not get a hold of anyone who could make any decisions regarding the property. We emailed ahead of time to confirm beach was accessible- no reply. It is not. We tried to extend for one day to make up for the lost day- again could not get a hold of anyone. The only interactions we had were with the local cleaning people and landscapers. The management company was MIA.
Manager response:

The views! Wow! Located nicely between a lot of the local wineries and downtown South Haven we had a wonderful time and the house was stunning. From the moment you walked in to the decor and cleanliness throughout - the place did not disappoint. Ample space for a bigger group / family or friend getaway with each room being luxurious so you didn’t have to worry about “who gets which room” as they all were beautiful.

This home is spectacular. The view is incredible. The entire backside of the house is windows overlooking a picturesque backyard that gives way to an infinite view of the lake. The furnishings inside the home are all luxury and well chosen colors and textures. It’s a perfect getaway with friends or family. We would definitely consider staying again.

Why we didn’t give 5 stars: With two simple adjustments, we would have given 5 stars. The master bedroom door does not have a lock on it. There is no way to lock the door at night. This was frustrating. Also, the internet service was poor - bad range and slow. Both of these items could be easily corrected. For such a luxurious home, we were surprised by both of these problems.

Highly recommend this property!
Manager response:
Thank you for staying with us, Jesse. We will be replacing the bedroom door knob and appreciate your feedback regarding the matter. Due to the home's location, the internet does have a hard time when multiple devices are connected. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused your group during your stay. We hope to see you again!

Alyssa was great! We had a recent death in the family so I had called to see if we could come a day later and check out a day later. Even though we weren't able to do that, Alyssa left a beautiful hand-written condolence note for our arrival.

Caitlin was wonderful. She was very professional and responsive to any issues and questions we had. We enjoyed the beautiful house and property. The peace and quiet Was worth a million dollars.
