About Julia Wood

A native of South Haven who grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan. I live just four houses from the vacation unit and am available 24/7 should you have any questions, need suggestions on where to dine or if problems arise that require attention.

Julia Wood purchased this apartment in 1978

Why Julia Wood chose Southwest

My grandmother lived on North Shore Drive as did my late husband's parents, so it was the natural place for us to be.

What makes this apartment unique

Across the street from a public park and beach, half a block to Stanley Johnston Park, two blocks to Captain Lou's; three block to Joe's and the Vineyards; four blocks to the Michigan Theatre and downtown shops of South Haven!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at SeaVista North, and we love it. We have 3 young kids and this is the perfect spot. The house is across the street from the beach and also an easy walk into town (lots of restaurants, shops, movie theater, etc.). The house is always clean, very spacious, and has a great patio. Julia is a great hostess. She lives a couple of houses down and is there if you need anything. Highly Recommend!

Prime location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at the Seavista North. It's absolute prime location (without spending a fortune on actual ocean front). It literally takes less than 2 minutes to walk across the street to the beach. And it’s approx. 10 minutes to walk downtown. We are a family of 5, kids age 3,5 and 8. The house is spacious, well equipped and it was spotless clean. Julia was a great host and did everything possible to make our stay perfect – there was even a bottle of wine for our arrival  We’ll stay here again

The Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Seavista North is the all around perfect place to stay when vacationing in South Haven.

It's spacious, comfortable, immaculately clean, and as close to the beach as you can get without the lake front prices. With Packard Park and beach right across North Shore Drive how could you go wrong.

We stayed for the 4th of July week and even though it was a holiday, the price was just right and you could see the fireworks from the front yard or the grass portion of the park.

There's plenty of room for all of your stuff and sleeping areas for 5 or 6 plus a toddler bed if necessary.

It felt so much like home we actually slept better there than our own house.

We are so happy we stumbled upon this gem and will definitely stay again the next time we vacation in South Haven.

Great family place

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful, affordable and comfortable place for a family (kids ages 12 & 15). The bathrooms were extremely clean, the beds were comfortable, and the kitchen well stocked with everything we needed. Great location just minutes from the beach. Loved the fresh flowers and the chilled bottle of wine for the adults!
