About Josh Gerry

We are a family from Wheaton Illinois and love South Haven

Josh Gerry purchased this house in 2005

Why Josh Gerry chose South Haven

This property is ideal for one or two families to escape to the beach for a week..close to town...pool...park...etc...

What makes this house unique

At 2 hours from Chicago..its amazing that you can feel so 'far away' and relaxed so quickly.......!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed the South Haven downtown fireworks, the house was perfect for our kids...from the toy room, to the playset to the pool and beach...we had a great time and would recommend to a family wanting to get away

Amazing Home and Views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time enjoying this house over the Thanksgiving weekend with our entire family. We all had very comfortable sleeping arrangements, loved the open floor plan on main level and beautiful view of Lake Michigan. The sun sets were beautiful. The kitchen had everything we needed for making meals. The boys loved the Xbox and the girls loved their built in bedroom upstairs. We could only imagine how beautiful this would be in the summer with the pool and beach in play. Very good location and close to South Haven for any food and grocery needs. We highly recommend this home and hope to be back.

Sisters Summer Getaway

  • 2 of 5

Although this home was spacious enough, my sisters and I were very disappointed in this home! The carpeting was filthy, the refrigerator and freezer were caked with spilled dried on food and drink, the cabinet where pots and pans were stored was a mess. With the cost of the cleaning service charge, we expected this home to be spotless and sanitized!. Another complaint was that we couldn't get the DVD to work. Finally, after paying the up charge for lake front property, we were very disappointed that we weren't able to get access to the beach for our daily walks.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughts… The main area rug in the main room receive some spills during the guest stay before you… We are having replaced that entire rug this week.. And we had a Change in our cleaning service which coincided with the week after your stay… Which is yielding much improved results ....I will take a look at the DVD player although the most recent guests mentioned that it did work for them…The water levels are the highest that the link is seen in decades… In the water levels actually rode to feed between June and August… Which illuminates anywhere from 103 The water levels are the highest that the link is seen in decades… In the water levels actually rose 2 feet between June and August… Which eliminates anywhere from 10 to 30 feet of beach ...we apologize for that… It has affected entire coast of Lake Michigan

Love the gated community and the house. However, for the price, the furniture was a bit old and we had issues with a broken toilet seat and dresser. Despite enjoying the area and vicinity to Lake I would not spend that much again, unless it's a bit more updated. Also beach was rocky and that was not noted in description.

Owner's Response: We strive to make all stays 5 star .. The water levels on all of Lake Michigan are at all time highs this summer and sandy large beaches are scarce ... We have enlisted Coastal Clean to behave as a 24 hour concierge service for our guests to fix any issues or assist...we have replaced all or our living room and family room furnishings in the last couple of weeks and will replace the pool table and chairs shortly... We take pride in an excellent and unparalleled experience and apologize for any inconvenience ...
