About Julia Wood

A native of South Haven who grew up on the shores of Lake Michigan. I live just four houses from the 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 South Haven

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!

Property was very nice. Very well equipped. Very clean and comfortable. Ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

Our reason for going was to have a nice quiet and relaxing weekend getaway. Our goal was not only met but exceeded. Everything worked out perfectly. Property, because of it being quiet, comfortable, well equipped, and ideally located, was a major factor in the success of the getaway. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Perfect location in South Haven!

  • 4 of 5

This is in a perfect place in South Haven as downtown is withen a 5-10 min walk where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. There is a beach right across the street and there are 2 more withen walking distance. Everything was spotlessly clean, however a few things were dated a little like the furniture and maybe the cabinets could be refurbished some. A complimentary bottle of Draught Apple Cider was a nice touch as well as the cookies that the kids enjoyed when we took them home. The only thing that I can think of that should be replaced would be the drapes in the living room as there was not much privacy because they were thin. Overall my wife and I enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others especially since this was a decent sized place.

Great locatoin and great hostess

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying on the North Side of South Haven and the location and the apartment could not of been better for our family of 4. The access to the beach was amazing and we really enjoyed some of the smaller beaches just North of North Beach. The apartment was clean and quiet. Highly recommend this apartment and Julie was awesome.

The location of this house is perfect.

Front porch is perfect for meals and house had all needed items. We appreciated not having to bring towels, kitchen items, etc.
