                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Our family has been coming to South Haven for several generations and for many reasons. We enjoy swimming at the beautiful beaches. We enjoy golfing. There are several great golf courses such as Hawk's Head and Beaches. We enjoy biking. The Kal-haven Bike Trail is near our home and is a 33.5 mile long multi-use trail linking Kalamazoo to South Haven. Most of all we enjoy family. South Haven is a place where family memories are created and remembered for a life time.

                  Why the Owner Chose South Haven:
                  Our home is a nice retreat when you want to get away from it all. With a well equipped kitchen, you can grill in the huge back yard, play a little badminton and volleyball, then dine and relax on the patio and porches. You are also just steps to restaurants when you don't feel like cooking. We enjoy the convenience of walking to the restaurants and downtown shops while also enjoying quiet time on our beautifully quiet tree lined street.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The home is just blocks to the Kal-Haven Trail a 33.5 mile long multi-use trail that links South Haven to Kalamazoo. The trail is not only stunning but is a preferred destination for biking, hiking, cross country skiing and snowmobiling. A new skateboard park has been added at the entrance of the Kal-Haven Trail. Great for teens!
