About the property

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 fifteen minute walk to town puts you in the heart of shops, museums, 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.

About Connie

I was a graphic designer and creative director that worked in advertising for many years. I had my own design agency and now I like to paint as a hobby. Love watercolors!

I have always wanted to get into vacation rentals and eventually I did just that. This is my seventh 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.

Connie purchased this condo in 2008

Why Connie chose South Haven

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.

What makes this condo unique

Indoor pool and hot tub

Peaceful setting that's also close to the action

Washer and dryer


Newer appliances and air conditioner

Fully equipped grill and utensils that we keep clean

Harborside condo experience !!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at the condo

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves with no disappointments.

The bedrooms are great size

The upper open floor plan is great for family interaction and enjoyment.

The top deck is beautiful for morning coffee and watching boats come and go in the channel.

The lower deck and gravity chair was great for brunch and evening quiet time.

The clubhouse pool and hot tub was great for us for to unwind and enjoy more family time together.

Location is near everything

Quiet and cozy

And we will be booking again next year

Connie is awesome and great to deal with

We miss it already !!!

Great Stay!

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and well-maintained. Good location, too. Indoor pool was great for cooler weather, or rain. There were more amenities than I expected! There was a welcome goody basket, which my boys loved! Items for the beach, including towels, chairs, umbrellas shovels, pails, etc. Movies, games and CD's galore! She even had an extra tank of propane for the grill, just in case!

Owner's Response: What great guests! You were so pleasant to talk to – I love it when my clients enjoy their stay. Thank you for letting me know you had a great time, and the great review. I know what you mean about the ducks, I love to sit on the deck in the summer and watch people walk by.

Another GREAT STAY!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th year staying here and always a pleasure. The place is spacious, fun and near everything. You can walk to town, walk to the beach and see great sunsets daily. If you're thinking of staying some where in South Haven, stay HERE!!

The neighbors are quiet, nice and friendly.

Enjoy your stay.

South Haven Harbor View

  • 3 of 5

Great location to shops and eateries as well as easy walk to beaches. This is our 9th year staying in weekly rentals. 3.5/5 stars!

Condo easily accommodates six people with plenty of extra air beds, bedding and beach things. Dishwasher soaps were provided as well as kitchen towels. Kitchen was equipped with cooking utinsels and good amount of dinnerware. Nice stack washer/dryer. Laundry soaps/softener was not available and more coffee filters were needed. Baseboards and /corners/cobwebs could be cleaner.

We lost power a few times one evening but may have been due to storm previous day and high (90) temps.

Indoor pool-needs to keep some of the Windows open and air movement as severe chlorine air condition. We really didn't use the pool much because it took at least an hour to make air breathable. Women's shower did not work. Hot tub was nice feature as water was not heated which was fine for us.

Nice place to stay. This was our first time in a condo vs a home. Quiet, safe and would probably stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! I am so sorry about the shortage of filters this time, just an oversight on my part. I listened and consulted a professional cleaner on the dust bunnies. We have re-vamped the cleaning crew’s tasks and feel we can live up to Carole’s standards in the future. That will not be easy, she is one the cleanest guests I have had – and they are all fantastic! Her attention to detail was simply superb. Thank you! I will bring the pool issues up at our next Association meeting. Once the Association agrees, we will move forward on fan repairs – I think that’s the problem.

Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

I visited with my family in February and enjoyed the rental very much. Great location near town, lovely living space upstairs. Would be great for a spring or fall weekend when we could also enjoy the outdoor patio spaces.

There were lots of games and books and the kitchen was fully stocked for cooking. I noticed beach toys and blankets as well for summer renters.

Connie was a delight to work with both before and after our stay. Everything went smoothly from making the initial reservation through the return of the deposit.
