About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Short Walk to beach, Outdoor Shower, Fully Renovated

We purchased this property because we loved the idea of being so close to the beach so we can walk back and forth for meals and naps. We also love this location because the house sits on a 'dead end' side street. It's very safe for kids and you don't have to worry about cars because of the location of the house. Our favorite feature is the fully enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold water...very convenient for larger groups and for kids to rinse all of that sand off!! Please no pets allowed, thank you!

About Brent Ladd

We are a Family of 5 that purchased this home for relaxing summers on the beach. We live in Kalamazoo, and absolutely love everything about South Haven for our family. Great atmosphere, restaurants and shopping. After a full renovation and a few great rental experiences we decided to rent this home during the summer when we are not using it.

Brent Ladd purchased this house in 2013

Why Brent Ladd chose South Haven

You won't find a better beach 'experience'....front porch swing, grilling, fire pit, outdoor shower....everything you need to have a great relaxing vacation with all of the amenities.

Can't get any better!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the time of our lives spending a week in South Haven. The house fit our needs perfectly and even exceeded some of our expectations. We literally parked the car when we arrived and didn't get back in it until it was time to drive back home. You are perfectly situated to Kids Corner, the beach, downtown and the pier that you can walk through the charming neighborhood and get anywhere you need to go in a matter of minutes. Hope to be able to come back and visit some day!

While the location is ideal the housekeeping issues were not. More accurately they were unacceptable. The one thing you take for granted when renting a house is that it will be clean, unfortunately this was not the case for us. Hoping it was a one time only occurrence. Cute house, great location but won’t be going back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to submit the review. This was definitely a one time occurrence. Our cleaning service did not execute properly and they have been super reliable for us for many years. This has been addressed, I can assure you!

Summer beach getaway

Our week in South Haven couldn't have been any better. Brent was very helpful and communication was timely. The house met every need we had. Close to kids corner, the beach, and not far from town.
