              South Haven is simply AWESOME. Our beaches are the best AND, one can easily walk from either North or South Beach right into town for lunch and shopping. We have a beautiful lighthouse with zero industry coming up our river, we're the sweetest little picturesque gem in Southwest Michigan! I Hope you experience the natural beauty and lovely shops and restaurants we proudly offer our visitors!

              Here is what the visitor's bureau has to say: Please visit their site for more information!

              Welcome to South Haven - It's a feeling! One that's hard to put into words, but once you visit you'll feel it too. It's an experience you'll never forget. It's what keeps you coming back for more. From the moment you arrive until the time you have to leave, you will know you are some place special. This one-of-a-kind Michigan Beachtown cannot be fully appreciated by reading about it in a brochure, cannot be touched even through the most technologically advanced website, and all the beautiful sunset photos in the world cannot do it justice. But don't take our word for it; come here and see for yourself or trust glowing reviews from publications like: The New York Times, Midwest Living, Michigan Travel Ideas, Chicago Sun Times, Chicago Tribune, Detroit Free Press, Underwater Journal, SkyWest Magazine, Western Parent Magazine, Art Showcase Magazine, and many more!

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: Welcome to your “home away from home”!! We have traveled to many parts of the world and we feel South Haven is one of the gems of the world with it’s quaintness of the small town, the slow flowing Black River running through town, the wide, golden beaches and the famous, red light house protecting the many pleasure boaters. We hope you enjoy our condo as much as we do and we hope you find your vacation relaxing, fun filled and memorable. We encourage you to visit our LAKE FACING 2 bedroom unit at this same compex on Homeaway #3469300 & our Naples Condo site as seen on Homeaway # 968390 to enjoy staying on a golf course and nearby the Gulf of Mexico beaches. Welcome to our home!! Harold & Marij

              Why the Owner Chose South Haven:
              I had the great fortune of being born and raised in South Haven in 1956. As a kid, I thought this small town was too slow for my likes especially during the long, snowy winters. As I matured, I realized how lucky I was to have experienced the lifestyle of this community. I remember participating in the clubs and sports the community had to offer, enjoying the Blueberry Festival and Fourth of July events. Some of my favorite activities were water skiing or fishing in Lake Michigan and snow skiing at nearby Timber Ridge. We have cooked blueberry pancakes for breakfast on the beach during the summer and climbed the ice bergs in the winter. I have brought my wife and kids back for the past twenty five plus years. My kids have experienced the joys of the town throughout their life and I know they will continue the traditions with their children. I hope that you can feel a small piece of what joys this town has given to me during your week vacationing in South Haven.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              We have admired this property over the years when we took our kids to the public beach at Packard Park. My wife always said “that is the place we should find a unit in”. It has so much to offer with it’s own private beach and pool. The terrace is huge and is great for entertaining or eating your dinner while watching the sunset. This dream continued for many, many years until we purchased it in 2005. We love our unit since it faces the lake and is so comfortable to sit and read. We love sleeping with the window open and hearing the waves crash on the shore. It is great just walking out the door onto the beach for a stroll to the North Pier. The location of the unit and the size of the town allows you to walk into town for shopping or meals. Go try the onion rings of Clementine’s or the bucket of perch at the Thirsty Perch in town. You must go to Captain Nemos for ice cream and don’t forget about the Golden Brown Bakery. Once here I am sure you will agree that it’s great having a pool and being on the lake at the same time and that you will want to return year after year to realize life’s simple pleasures!!!
