This rental is conveniently located to town. It’s nothing fancy but it would be a nice place to stay if you just need a place to crash after a day on the beach.
When renting it I had no idea it was a duplex. We went to south haven for a wedding and brought our dogs along with us. I never would have rented this knowing that we had neighbors right next door. Our dogs being nervous in a new place unfortunately barked at the noises next door while we were out at the rehearsal dinner and wedding. Frustrating for us. Frustrating for the neighbors. Could have been avoided if the listing was more accurate. We were very disappointed- if you have dogs reconsider because you will hear your neighbors (and so will they!).
Speaking of noises, we got to listen to animals/rodents scurrying in the ceiling or walls at night.... not the most relaxing way to unwind.
Also, no hot water. If you’re staying here plan for get clean by jumping in the lake because our water never warmed up past luke warm at best.
The backyard has nice setup and is pretty quiet. However, there is broken glass out there. I tried to pick up the pieces but I’m sure there’s more. Be cautious and wear shoes- and again maybe not the most dog friendly location because of this.
Overall the house was pretty clean, except for a dirty sock I found on the edge of the master bed.
This weekend was not relaxing, if anything it was stressful. It was mostly due to the fact that we had no idea we would have neighbors in a duplex. May be a good option for some people, but was not for us.
