Recent South Haven guest reviews

We had a great experience at this property. Upon arrival, we immediately noticed how clean it was. The furnishings appeared to be brand new and very stylish. The property was nicely remodeled. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen provided all the necessary accessories and appliances. We especially enjoyed spending the our evenings around the large firepit. The yard had a children's play set as well as plenty of space for them to run around, while enjoying various games and sports. Inside there was a good amount of toys available to keep our little ones busy. It was located in a great spot, as the beach and downtown area were both easily accessible by a short walk. Stores were also a short walk/drive away, making it easy to pick up groceries or necessities. We would definitely go back and highly recommend staying here! Thanks!

Affordable, clean, quaint one bedroom condo with perfect location for access to beach, or downtown shopping, eating, etc…. A must visit and stay!

As a first time visitor to Michigan I am so pleased with my choice of accommodation at Appy place. The central location in close proximity to the delightful towns of South Haven and Saugatuck made it so easy to explore the area and we especially loved the exclusiveness of the house being part of a gated estate. The sun drenched porch in the beautiful leafy garden was my happy place to relax in the morning and in the evenings we took a short walk to watch the spectacular sunset over Lake Michigan . We had family time at the beautiful private beach on Lake Michigan, with use of the beach limited to only the gated estate residents. The spacious and spotlessly clean house was everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. The hosts *** and **** have a list of perfect activities. I’ll definitely come back to Appy Place. Ps the name Appy is derived from the two apple trees on the property - it’s a perfect play on words because I felt so happy there.

Where is South Haven, MI?

This port city rests where the Black River meets the vast waters of Lake Michigan. It’s tucked in the southwestern corner of the state, in the heart of Michigan’s wine country, where you’ll find many charming rural towns boasting local color. Saugatuck and Douglas, with their bustling arts and food scenes, are just a 20-minute drive north.

Things to do in South Haven, MI

It may come as no surprise that the abundant water activities are a big draw to our South Haven vacation rentals. There’s something for every interest, from a day adventuring in your kayak rental to strolling along the beach with someone special.

Spend an afternoon exploring the shores of Lake Michigan at North Beach, a park open year-round where you can lounge on the sand and splash through the waves in the summertime. Cooler months mean a more tranquil beach experience and peaceful sunset views.

No matter the time of year, you’ll have views of the beloved South Haven Light. Built in 1903, this lighthouse is a fixture of the community around our South Haven cabins. When the weather is right, you can walk along the pier to admire it up close. During stormy weather, the waves crashing against it are a sight to behold from the shore, and in the winter the frozen lake water leads to incredible ice formations on the lighthouse. No matter the season, a trip to the South Haven Light is a must.

If you just can’t get enough of the lake while visiting your South Haven beach rental, the Michigan Maritime Museum is a must. Not only are there interesting exhibits on South Haven’s history as a port city, but you can hop aboard a number of boat rides, from replicas of 1800s sloop ships to modern day yachts, for a day cruising the seemingly endless waters of Lake Michigan.

Our South Haven vacation rentals offer everything you need to experience this charming city and the surrounding areas of Saugatuck, Douglas, Fennville, and beyond. Browse our homes today and start planning your next trip to beautiful Lake Michigan.
