Property description

Summer in South Haven!

This condo is within walking distance to everything in South Haven. For those guests that are staying for a week or more, it’s also a great home location spot that lets you visit other towns and beaches along Lake Michigan like Saugatuck, Douglas, Holland, and Grand Haven. The indoor pool is open year round.

Located on Black River Street, Harborside is just two blocks from the bridge and Stanley Johnston Memorial Park–where the art shows are held. The property has a large yard that is perfect for outdoor activities, an indoor swimming pool and hot tub, and a large outdoor sunning and picnic deck.

From the private condo deck you’ll get a view of the Black River launch, letting you combine your morning coffee with some people watching. A ten minute walk to town puts you in the heart of shops, restaurants, a movie theater, bike and kayak rentals, boat and fishing excursions and the South Haven Marina. Several night spots feature live music and fantastic views.

During the summer, there is a Saturday farmer’s market at the downtown pavilion. There are also several public beaches a ten minute walk from the condo. Festivals, concerts, art fairs and Lake Michigan sunsets on the pier–all are an easy walk away.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: I am a graphic designer and creative person that has worked in advertising for many years. I have my own design agency and also like to paint as a hobby. I have always wanted to get into vacation rentals and eventually I did just that. This is my fourth season renting the condo out in South Haven and I enjoy it. I don't always get to meet guests, but it's satisfying to hear the positive feedback after their stay is over.

Why the Owner Chose South Haven, MI, USA:
This is a really great location in South Haven that's close to everything. You can walk to the beaches, the marina, downtown or along the Black River. I bought the property because I grew up in the area. It's a great place for my family to get together and we use it when it's not rented out. I love the fall and winter in South Haven. I like to keep the property clean and well equipped, so we have beach equipment and toys, as well as towels and blankets. If you like cooking, the kitchen has everything you need–dishes and utensils, cookware, even spices. We have a few board games and movies. That's nice the night you come in and also helps entertain the troops.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Indoor pool and hot tub Peaceful setting that's also close to the action Washer and dryer Internet Newer appliances and air conditioner Fully equipped grill and utensils that we keep clean
