Property description

BEACHWALK Vacation Rental In South Haven is a great summer retreat for your family. Thank you to many repeat guests! Grab this opportunity to spend this holiday on the Lake Michigan Beach before someone else does!

'BEACH WALK' family vacation home is located right between South Haven and Saugatuck. Our neighborhood community of Glenn Haven Shores enjoys gated access to its' own private beach. Our beach has NO Stairs and has drive down access. This is almost unheard of in South Haven! Our 1500 ft. beach access is a short 5 minute walk from the house or a 2 minute drive. Park in the shade and there's the water! Buzz back to the house when you need something.

Tennis, Ping Pong, XBox 360, Direct TV, 10 free bikes, golf clubs, beach chairs, beach toys, and hula hoops to hammocks!

Our home is not lake front and does not have a lake view. What we do have is a very nice gated access to our neighborhood association's beautiful private beach - walk down or drive down.

Mornings with a cup of coffee we're often the only ones there scooping up beach glass treasures! Campfires, alcohol and leashed pets are allowed on our private beach. These are not allowed on the public beaches in the South Haven to Saugatuck area.

Our beach is also more accessible to physical challenges due to lack of stairs and drive down option.

Sunset Park is yet another nice spot that's also privately owned by our association and sits on the bluff overlooking the lake with a couple benches. It's about a 3 min. walk from the house with a glass of wine & a delightful spot to enjoy the sunset.

Pack up a couple beach chairs and an umbrella (they're in our garage), and grab a cooler while you're out there. Get a book from our library shelves and head down for a relaxing afternoon beachside! Now you're on vacation.

At the beach, there's a foot wash, and in the summer season there's also a portable toilet. We frequently find beach glass and Petoskey stones on our beach.

'BEACH WALK' Michigan family vacation rental home is awaiting your arrival. A light, bright, open home layout provides several different 'conversation areas' while providing some separation for a larger group or family.

Enjoy the cozy fireplace room w/a library and games, This room also features a leather rocker / recliner, a full size sofa, child's rocker, and a loveseat.

'We appreciate that you pay such attention to detail' is a comment we get frequently from guests and a compliment that I most appreciate. We know that you arrive at Beach Walk ready to start your vacation and we strive to make sure everything is clean, in working order and 'ship shape'.

Our TV room has cable TV (and so do all the bedrooms), DVD, stereo with CD, a full size sofa, loveseat, comfy armchair, ottoman, and wicker rocker. Wireless internet is provided for your laptop computer.

The kitchen is fully equipped. We also provide paper products and dish soap. The kitchen provides a center island with 2 bar stools as well as kitchen table seating for 7. There is additional seating in the adjoining dining room table for 6 more. A highchair and booster chair are available as well.

The bathrooms are well-stocked with towels and washcloths as well as paper products and hand soap. We do ask that you provide your own beach towels.

2.5 Baths: There is a full bath with tub/shower combo upstairs. There's an additional full bath with garden tub and shower combo off the main level master bedroom, and there is a convenient half bath just off the kitchen.

3+Bedrooms are comfortably furnished with fresh linens, pillows, blankets and comforters. Bedrooms are laid out as follows: Master on the main floor with a queen bed, cable TV and adjoining full bath. Upstairs there is a very large bedroom with a queen size bed, a twin size bed, and a twin trundle bed (an additional twin that pops out from under the top twin and the 2 beds side-by-side are the size of a king-size bed). This room will sleep 5. There is also a table w/4 chairs in this room. This makes a nice room for a family as it has the game table and cable TV/DVD. We also have 2 mesh rails that can be added to any bed if you have a child that might roll out.

The second upstairs bedroom features a queen bed and cable TV. Both upstairs bedrooms have their own remote controlled air conditioning (in addition to central air) for your added comfort. The upstairs has a full bath and there is an additional twin bed in the hall/loft area upstairs.

A full-sized crib and/or a pack & play are available.

The house has central air and heating and full garage w/opener. Furnished front porch area is one of our favorite spots. Deck and patio area in back with umbrella tables and multiple chairs. Nice lawn area in front and back. Hammock in a shady area of the back yard.

We frequently see deer, tree frogs, hummingbirds, rabbits, and the Southwest Michigan black squirrels. Gas grill, Weber charcoal grill, and grill tools. Firewood usually available to take to the beach for campfires.

Other amenities include: iron and ironing board, washer, dryer, and hairdryers. We provide clothes detergent and dryer sheets. We also provide beach chairs and umbrellas, water toys, coolers, lawn games, multiple bicycles, golf club sets, a ping pong table, and tennis rackets and balls. We know you can only bring so much in your car, so we try to provide most of what you need.

There are tennis courts available for your use about a 1 minute walk away. You can see the fence from our front porch and we have tennis rackets/balls. Our home is on a cul-de-sac and the area around and down to the beach is lovely for walking and/or bike riding.

A well-behaved pet will be considered (pet fee applies). We provide our guests with a resource binder to use for the towns of South Haven Michigan (10 minutes away), Saugatuck Michigan (12 minutes away), Glenn Michigan (2 minutes away) and surrounding areas.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Carl has lived in Kalamazoo, Michigan all his life and has many fond memories of visits to South Haven and Saugatuck as a child. I (his wife) am from the land-locked state of Kansas and have learned to love the Michigan lakeshore as well. After many years of weekend trips to the lake area, we were excited to purchase this great property in 2002. We treasure our time here and enjoy sharing our home and our knowledge of the area with visitors. When we're on vacation, we always rent a home and we like cleanliness, comfort, and convenience - and lots of fun. That's what we try to provide for vacationers who rent our home - a nice place to make memories.

Why the Owner Chose South Haven:
We love the Lake Michigan area and always looked forward to relaxing in and around the lakeshore towns of South Haven and Saugatuck. This property is less than 1 hour from our home in Kalamazoo, so it's a convenient escape to 'vacation mode'. The location of the home in the quaint town of Glenn, Michigan is perfect for us since it's right between the 2 towns we spend our time in: South Haven and Saugatuck. We offer a lot of added value in nearly a dozen bikes to choose from, free tennis (rackets and balls supplied), ping pong, several sets of golf clubs, lawn games, beach toys, coolers, beach chairs and umberllas, hammocks, Xbox 360 w/games, Cable TVs in all bedrooms and TV room as well, marshmallow forks for your campfire and more! All that's missing is you.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We really enjoy the serene feeling here, while being right between 2 major Lake Michigan beach resort towns. This year we had a small Bambi look-alike that would visit the pear trees in our yard. Hummingbirds are frequently seen, as well as raccoons, rabbits, black squirrels, and deer. We love to take walks and ride bikes - either down to the beach or just around the gated neighborhood. But the private beach is probably our favorite where we can walk for miles and have a campfire if we want to. Soft sand, clear water - you just can't beat it. If you want more action, just drive 10 minutes either way.
