South Haven house description

The 'B-Hive' is available on a weekly basis only between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Shorter stays are allowed September through May with a two night minimum. This beach house is perfectly located just steps away from South Haven's beautiful North Beach. The key to this location is that there are no huge hills nor endless staircases to climb when walking to and from the beach. This is an important detail many property owners forget to share when describing the location of their property!!!

The B-Hive has five (5) bedrooms with three (3) full baths and is the ultimate family retreat. The bedrooms consist of four queen beds and the fifth bedroom has one combination twin trundle bed. All of the rooms are tastefully decorated with antique furniture and reproduction pieces providing a comfortable feel throughout.

New fixtures, finishes and furnishings!!!: The house has been remodeled with new finishes and appliances while maintaining the feel of it's original character and architectural details. The outdoor patio is approximately 400 square feet and is perfect for a barbecue after a relaxing day at the beach. Within walking distance are several excellent restaurants, parks, shops, and the new municipal marina.

With something for everyone, the B-Hive is without question the best location for your family's summer vacation!

Three full baths!!!: We often hear from our guests that previously rented homes that accommodate ten (10) guests with only one or two bathrooms. Do not spend your vacation waiting in line to use the bathroom. The B-Hive has three beautiful bathrooms for your use. Two full bathrooms are located on the first floor and one full bathroom is located on the second floor. The first floor south bathroom is a private en-suite bath dedicated to that bedroom. There is also a 50 gallon, high efficiency, quick recovery hot water heater so the last of your group taking a shower does not have to do so with ice cold water.
Just a few of the many details we paid attention to when remodeling the B-Hive.

No hills! No stairs! No bluffs!: Remember these words when booking your family's summer vacation. How relaxing is the vacation when you have to walk up an endless flight of stairs after a long relaxing day at the beach?

                      Year Purchased: 1998

                      About: We love South Haven! It is a place that is very special to our family. We have welcomed and said good bye to members of our family on the beach. Our children are the fifth generation in our family enjoying the beautiful beaches of South Haven.

                      Why South Haven:
                      We are parents of four young children. We wanted a beach house to escape from the hustle and bustle and focus on family. Historic Monroe Park is the neighborhood that is directly adjacent to the North Beach. The key to this location is there are no huge hills nor endless staircases to climb up and down when going to and from the beach. Kind of an important thing to remember with small children and grandparents who want to join you down at the waters edge.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Location. Location. Location.
