This Charming destination is only two blocks from South Beach, two blocks into downtown and a few blocks from the park, yet on a dead end street away from the hustle and bustle. This convenient location offers great walking, hiking, biking, beaching, shopping, games, and family cookouts. Enjoy the convenience of this location yet enjoy it's quiet and relaxing setting of home. New for 2017!!!! We are building a new large upper deck! Wait til you see the beautiful private deck where all 4 of you can sit and enjoy the outside. There will be a grill on the deck for easy grilling. It's a really great new feature for this unit.

Beaufully decorated and furnished: Designed and owned by a Residential Designer, great care was taken to give you the perfect home away from home. We want you to come and feel like part of the family with a quaint and lovely place to stay.

With the beach and town just two blocks away, enjoy the easy access to the beautiful town of South Haven. Hear the waves crash the beach at night while you lay in bed or listen to the music on Thursday evening at the Marina from your private upper deck. The upper deck features a grill and seating to enjoy some outdoor seating.

Nearby fun!: The Kal Haven trail is just one mile away. You can ride bikes(can rent them a few blocks away if needed) to the trail or Kayak up or down the Black River. There are a couple of levels of Kayaking I can give you for ideas. This is a beautiful trail. In the winters, you can cross country ski or Snowmobile the trail. Take a picnic lunch and stop by the gazebo along the way.

Why Marla Bruemmer chose South Haven

The location and architectural features of this building attracted me to this area. I love Lake Michigan and hearing the water at night. The proximity to town and the water are perfect. The charm and character of this building brought a strong sense of home to me.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our small family. It was clean and well-equipped overall. The property is very well maintained and the owners are friendly and accommodating.

The apartment's location is also ideal - it's on a quiet street, but within easy walking distance of the downtown area and beach.

The only minor thing we would recommend would be bringing extra door hangers or something for drying towels, swimsuits, etc. There's only one towel rack in the bathroom and you are not allowed to hang items outside.

There are other apartments available on this property. Enjoy your stay! We did!

Well maintained apartment rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this property in July of 2016. This is a large home with 3 apartments. We stayed in the front apartment and it was very nice. Everything was in working order, and nicely decorated. It is a short walk to downtown or south beach. The owner lives onsite so this is a bonus because they are around if something should go wrong. This is a place for families who want a quiet relaxing place to stay, it has limitations on the number of guests per apartment and is not a party house. The only downside is the check in and check out times. You check in on Saturday after 4:00 p.m. and have to be out the following Sat. at 10:00 a.m. This makes the first and last days rather short to do much.

Well maintained / beautiful in excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

My family has been coming to South Haven for the last five years. This property is located one block off of the Black River. We were able to walk to everything (kids park, public beaches, great dinning and shopping. The only time we needed to get in the car was to go Gingerman Raceway in the evenings for some car racing.

The owner really captured the essence of South Haven for us in the decorating and was able to design the space to seem very spacious for a family of three. Every thing was well appointed. Having things like a coffee maker, wifi and cable tv made everything so comfortable.

You know you had a good vacation when no one wanted to return home. We will be coming back again soon. Thank you for having such a wonderful space at a great price.

A wonderful place to escape

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have always enjoyed South Haven in the summer, but had no idea how wonderful it would be in the fall. We rented this beautiful apartment that was within walking distance to the pier, beach, and downtown restaurants and shops. We loved getting away on long weekends and really relaxed. The apartment was spotless and furnished with everything we needed. We’ve already signed up for a month in the spring.
