Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: 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 the Owner Chose South Haven, MI, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
