About Victoria McIntyre

I purchased this - my dream home - in 2012 and am loving every minute I can be there. This is my second home that I am very proud of.

Everyone who visits simply falls in love with it.

Why Victoria McIntyre chose Southwest

You will love the feel of the home as soon as you drive up. Once inside, a feeling of casual chic comfort puts you right at ease. You know as soon as you walk in the door you have made the right choice. This one will be a repeat.

What makes this house unique

This home is 2 blocks to the beach - the most important aspect of renting a home close to Lake Michigan. It's South Beach - and it's massive! (not on a bluff). The pier is right there, too. It's two blocks to Kid's Corner - very popular. It's an easy 10 minute walk to town. If you happen to be a member of the American Legion, there is a huge one just 3 blocks from my home with the best view in town - gorgeous.

Beautiful cozy getaway, easy distance from Chicago

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were looking for a quick, weekend getaway from Chicago and came across "The Hive" in South Haven. It's a great little house (I say little but it packs a lot within its walls!). It has are 3 dedicated bedrooms, 2 full bath, really comfortable living space and perfect little kitchen. It's about 2 blocks away from the beach and big playground for anyone traveling with kids.

Even when the weather turned on us a little during the weekend, the house has lots of games, movies, WiFi and cable, so we were never short of things to do. The owner is very responsive and a delight to work with. Highly recommend The Hive for anyone's trip to South Haven.

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This little house in South Haven was perfect for an unseasonably cold spring break in west Michigan. The convenience of being able to walk to the beach and pier as well as the downtown shops was wonderful. The kitchen is well equipped, everything was clean, and the wi-fi access worked well. The highlight was the outdoor hot tub - not sure how old it was, but it was perfect for relaxing in the freezing rain and snow... in April. Communication with the owner was timely and pleasant. Highly recommend this place!

Great home, well done!

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families stay comfortably in this very well stocked house. The entire home is cozy and nicely redone. The kitchen has absolutely everything you could possibly need. There are also 2 bikes, beach chairs and other beach toys as well. And the basketball hoop was the boys' favorite. The hot tub and deck were super clean, with a nice yard as well. I would definitely stay at The Hive again. Very easy walk to the beach or town. The owner was fantastic to work with, no problems at all!

Location, Location, Location. South Haven is known for it's quaint, quiet, clean atmosphere. The beaches are vast and walkable. Millions of dollars of improvements to an already beautiful little town has made South Haven a must-see area. More improvements are being made every year.
