About Elizabeth

We are year-round South Haven residents and we love everything that southwest Michigan has to offer! We especially love spending time at the beach in the summer. Our favorite places to visit in town are Sherman's, Kid's Corner and Taste.

We are both teachers and foster parents, so we kept our love of kids in mind when we set up the house and added in lots of beach and house toys!

Elizabeth purchased this house in 2005

Why Elizabeth chose South Haven

We have worked hard to ensure that we can create a budget-friendly vacation experience for all families!

A very enjoyable place! Super close to the beach. Other comments had said that it was in a "iffy" neighborhood, but I disagree having stayed there. I felt completely safe. The beach equipment was a really nice commodity.

Wonderful Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost I would like to share is that the owner, Beth, is fantastic. She was very communicative and accommodating to all our requests/needs. She answered every phone call (which proved important when we locked ourselves out of the house!) and responded to emails quickly.

The house was perfect for our family of four and two dogs. Our girls loved having their own room with adorable accents on their beds (my 5 yr old is obsessed with mermaids, so the mermaid decor was perfect!) There was also a closet full of toys, games, movies etc that kept my girls busy on the rainy days. Not to mention the garage FULL off beach accessories, strollers, and toys. We literally didn't have to bring a thing!

The living space was large enough for us all to convene in at the end of the day. I would say the only downfall is the lack of space in the kitchen and accessing the back patio you have to go through the garage, but overall it served its purpose.

There was a wagon in the garage which held both our girls perfectly as we walked to the beach and park (with a huge playland for kids) which was about a 5-10 minute walk depending how fast you walk, definitely easy to do with young kids. The area overlooks South Beach, with access to the beach down a couple flights of stairs from the bluff. Very easy. If you're a church goer, St Basil's is also down the way from the park, about 10-15 min walk from the house. You can acutally walk to downtown if you want, it's about 20 minutes.

We absolutely loved our stay in South Haven. I would recommend staying here.

Great vacation house !

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time! The house was perfect for our family. There was lots of games and beqch toys for my son and the kitchen was fully equipped to cook in the house. It was close to the beach and town and a nice yard to grill and for my son to play in. The only negative thing I would say is I was a bit weary of the neighborhood. The first night the neighbors had a very loud party until almost 2 am which kept us up. This was the only problem we had. But at first look the neighborhood looks a bit sketchy. Overall a great experience.
