Property description

SUNDAY TO SUNDAY RENTAL DURING PEAK-PLEASE NOTE! ***2015 updates-we have replaced the portable fire pit with an in ground, stone pit. All bikes and yard toys now in a new shed in the yard***2014 updates-we now have HBO/SHO/MAX and HD Premier Sports, a new patio adjacent to the deck and an outdoor shower!*** “NamaStay of South Haven” is new to the rental market in 2013! The entire home has been gutted to the studs, fresh and sparkling for your vacation (original home built 1928)! Everything is new, top to bottom, inside and out, including all furnishings, from the dishes, to the drywall to the 2 decks! This spacious and well laid out, Zen like retreat is waiting for your group to experience. 3 blocks to town or kids corner, 4 blocks to the beach, the location is perfectly central to all S.Haven has to offer while affording privacy in a park like setting. Enjoy a lazy stroll into town for breakfast then load up the beach toys in the cart (all provided) and walk straight west 4 blocks until your toes hit the sand on the best stretch of South Beach in SoHa. Need to escape the world for a while? Read a book, practice yoga or meditate in the Annex off the master suite or on the secluded screened in porch. Feeling energetic? Grab one of the bicycles (provided) and pedal down the Kal-Haven Trail. Finish off the afternoon with a nap in the hammock in the shade while listening to the sound of the babbling brook, contemplating the insides of your eyelids. End the day with a dinner of fresh, local items from the phenomenal and extensive farmer’s market (3 blk walk), grilled and enjoyed on your private deck in your secluded yard with a dessert of s’mores around the fire pit. We have thought of everything so you don't need to think of anything while you are here...the ideal vacation. Leave your car in the driveway and your cares on the highway-you have arrived. Welcome Home to Pure Michigan Perfection!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We live in the Chicago area and have been vacationing in Michigan all our lives. We LOVE the beach! We think South Haven is the perfect spot, not too far but not too close either! The water is warm (thank you wind from the windy city), the beaches are clean and wide, the town is big without being too big and the people are friendly. We think we have found a piece of heaven here for our precious vacation time.

Why the Owner Chose South Haven:
We knew this was THE house the moment we walked in. The house was completely renovated to the studs in 2013. We added on the front porch and back deck, the gorgeous hand scraped flooring on the first floor and painted every wall in colors that spoke 'relax' to us, in a whisper, not a shout. The location is ideal, equal distance between town and beach with a wooded view for ultimate privacy and remote feeling, without being remote! We feel we have found a one of a kind gem and are super excited to share it with you!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We furnished the home with YOU in mind. You will not find a lot of knick knacks or clutter. There is space for your things so you can immediately make it your own. There is open space which gives your mind rest and the chance to slow down and go on vacation with your body! Our photos are current and descriptions are accurate-you need to know what you are getting for your vacation dollars so there is no bait and switch here leading to frustration and disappointment. We want repeat guests that care as much about this home as we do. Our home is truly your home and we hope you immediately feel that when you walk in the door the first time.
