Anybody have additional info on VRBO property 441672?

I find it just a little unsettling that this property has no reviews and is still available for the week we'd like. Last time we came to South Haven we stayed on the other side in a condo. We are coming this time with extended family so we need more space. Any info you can provide about the immediate neighborhood, ease of access to the beach, how long 7 blocks feels to dinner, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Please respond ASAP. Thanks!

Who did the decorating? :-0 Not a bad neighborhood, actually good. The area deteriorates quickly to the east of the property though, but there are a couple of blocks of buffer and its only a block from Lake Michigan.

With that said you need to walk a block north to Kids Corner and then west a block to a public beach that we call "The Blue Stairs". Its the very south end of the South Beach so its a quarter mile from the stairs to the beach facilities or back up the stairs to the restrooms at the east end of Kids Corner.

I'm not sure which way they're walking to town but I'd put it at 10 maybe 11 blocks to town, do able but a hike.

You will get some nice sunsets from the bluff at the Blue Stairs, and a great view of the South Pier. Not from the house of course. Let us know if you need more.

My other option is in the 800 block of Edgell. Better or worse location?

Rono is spot on as usual. :-) The hike to "downtown" for dinner, etc will a long hike if you have small children.

I would pass/worse on Edgell. Way too far away from beach and still a hike to downtown.

I would say Edgell is a worse location. I don't see an 800 block of Edgell. Edgell crosses the 800 block of Indiana, Kalamazoo or Center streets though. Regardless, the St. Joseph house is much closer to the beach and only a block farther from town.

PS I agree with Cold. we posted at the same time.

been in that area....Rono is spot on as usual...7 blks with little kids is LONG...unless you bring a wagon....then it's doable....and you CAN always drive to the beach....pay your 5 bucks and leave your car there all day....very walkable from there!! I like Packard Park for that!!

Correction I meant the 500 block of Edgell but I think your recos will remain the same, correct?
