About Robyn Henrickson

My husband and I grew up in Michigan, myself in South Haven and he in Allegan, but we didn't end up meeting until we both lived in Chicago after college. We spent ten years in Chicago before moving back to Michigan when we started our family. We loved our childhood memories enjoying every season Michigan has to offer - beautiful spring flowers; summer beach days; fall colors, pumpkin patch and cider milll trips; winter sledding, ice skating and skiing. We wanted those memories for our children too.

My husband, myself and our two children live full time in South Haven and are so happy to be able to let others enjoy our rental home, spend time with their family and friends, and enjoy everything the season's have to offer in this beautiful town.

Robyn Henrickson purchased this condo in 2009

Why Robyn Henrickson chose Southwest

We first purchased our condo for our own use when we were still living in Chicago. The location was perfect for us - walking distance to beach and town but on a quiet side street. We figured it would be a nice little get away on the weekends. Then, when we moved back to South Haven permanently, we started to share our home with others vacationing in South Haven.

What makes this condo unique

My husband and I completely renovated the condo after we purchased it to make it our 'own style'. We have included all the comforts and modern amenities that we enjoy having to give an 'at home' feel for our guests. We take so much pride and care with our condo and enjoy being able to share it with our guests.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

This was a very smooth trip. The condo was very nice and had everything needed for a nice weekend away.

We probably made the trip a little early in the season as it was still a little cold and many restaurants and stores were not open yet, but we'd definitely consider making a summer trip back with the whole family!

One word: Fabulous. The condo was clean, location was ideal. The condo was close to the beach and the downtown area. We drove to North Beach because we had small kids. One of our favorite parts of the vacation was sitting out on the balcony, watching the boats go by on the Black River. Having an indoor pool was definitely a plus.

All in all, I would recommend this property. Very affordable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback and I am so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay! Our kiddos love the indoor pool as well, especially on those rainy days or for after beach swims. Watching the boats go by from the patio is one of our favorite activities as well. There is such a great view from both decks! Hope to host your family again for future vacations. Robyn

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a week stay at your condo and absolutely loved it. The condo is perfect. Super clean, updated, quiet, and comes with everything you need for a day at the beach. Excellent location. This was our first trip to Michigan and we spent time exploring the town and the beach, the beach at Tiscornia Park in St Joseph is fantastic. Loved the Dune Rides in Saugatuck and Michigan Adventure Amusement Park. We even had a great view of the meteor shower from the deck. Thank you for sharing your condo with us!

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. We also enjoy the location of the unit as it's not only close to our cities beach and town; South Haven is also a good location between neighboring towns so you can make day trips to Saugatuck or St Joe as you did. We hope you visit South Haven again soon and look forward to having you! Robyn

My family and I stayed here last week. We loved everything about this condo. It is beautifully decorated and was spotless when we arrived. This was the first time we have stayed an entire week in South Haven and it couldn't have been better. Our days were spent relaxing on the beach and paddle boarding. We took in a movie on a rainy Sunday. The condo is in a great location with short walks to town and the beach. The complex was quiet. We couldn't even tell the were other tenants. I can't say one negative thing about this property. We would absolutely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your stay and the condo. We take great pride in ensuring our condo is up to the standards we look for in rentals (ex: amenities, cleanliness, etc). We also find the unit quiet and peaceful, you would never know we are in such close proximity to downtown and the beach since it's so quiet. We hope you visit South Haven again soon and we'd be honored to host your vacation if you do. Best Robyn

Charming and beautifully renovated Condo close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent three lovely nights at this gorgeous condo last week (May, 2016). It was beautifully renovated with gorgeous wood floors, granite and stainless in the kitchen and a lovely Master bath. It boasts two balconies which we enjoyed, and also has a fireplace that makes us want to make another booking for a cozy stay in November or December!

The condo was spotless and extremely well maintained. We come to South Haven regularly and we usually stay at the B & B around the corner. We decided to try a condo this time for a bit more space and we're both very glad we did!

The location is great and we walked to the beach and into town each day and evening. It's a short and easy walk to both.

There are two small things to keep in mind when renting this condo. 1. If you like soft (feather) pillows then bring your own. 2. Pack some beach towels.

I looked at SO many places before selecting this condo and won't stay anywhere else when in South Haven.

Owner's Response: Mary - I am so glad to hear you had a nice stay and enjoy the amenities of the condo as much as we do! We take great pride in ensuring the condo is well kept for our guests. We want to make sure it feels like a home away from home. Also, we appreciate the feedback on the beach towels and pillows. With your feedback we went out and purchased beach towels for the unit and our guests to use. We also try to provide a mix of pillows so those who like softer or firmer pillows have at least one choice in the unit. But understand we probably cannot find the best pillow to suit everyone. We do hope you visit South Haven again soon and look forward to hosting your vacation! Robyn

I can't say enough good things about this condo! The pics don't do it justice. It is SOOO clean, so nice with hardwood floors, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, etc. Very "cozy" too. A nice fireplace and balcony. The bedding and towels are so nice too - a biggie for me when renting. Our kids LOVED the indoor pool - that sealed the deal for me when comparing condos. You could easily walk to town and the beach (though we drove with our little ones). I've done the comparing and shopping around for you, trust me! STAY HERE :-)

So glad to hear you love the place just as much as we do! Can't wait to host your vacation in South Haven hopefully again soon! Robyn
