Welcome to one of the best places on Lake Michigan. Hawksview Condo offers a getaway where you can park your car on arrival, and never have to drive again until you leave.

However you chose to spend your time you will be very comfortable in our 2 bedroom, 1 full bath condo, The private parking lot is on the East side of the building with 2 parking spaces. There are no stairs in this main level unit. You can comfortably sleep 6 with the master bedroom featuring a queen-size bed, the second bedroom has a full-size bed under a full-size bunk-bed, and the large open living area has a queen-size pullout sleeper sofa. Enjoy watching the boats go by from the spacious living room’s spectacular view overlooking the vibrant and active Black River. Oh, and don't forget the picturesque sunsets...
The family will love the big waves and sandy shoreline at South Beach, so grab your beach towel and it's a brief walk from this ideal location. Maybe you would like to go fishing, or rent a kayak or bicycle. If you own a boat, jet skis or would like to rent one this is the location for you. You can be in the open waters of Lake Michigan within minutes. When not on the water, we are within walking distance to quintessential downtown shops, eateries, entertainment, and all that South Haven has to offer!
Golfers will find a multitude of courses at all levels of play. For the athlete, we are at the beginning of the historic Kal Haven trail which offers 30 plus miles for running, biking, or hiking. South Haven is home to numerous festivals throughout the year and is known for their spectacular Blueberry crop. There are many specialty shops (art, clothing, and great antiques) in town, as well as many more just a short drive away. Local Art Communities thrive during the summer season and make for a great day of shopping, antiquing and dining.
When you are ready to settle in, our place has been updated including new furniture and is designed with relaxation and romance in mind. For your comfort the following are provided: central air conditioning, ceiling fans, washer, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, fully equipped kitchen, bedroom & kitchen linens, board games, and video library.
Kitchen table seats four plus four more can sit at the bar, and the full kitchen has all modern amenities. Great open concept for dinners and gatherings, or you can watch a movie on the 46” T.V. with DVD player and Netflix via Roku. Secure WI-FI is available for your wireless needs.
The building was previously the home of the South Haven Tribune that was has been renovated into condos. This quiet ‘Hawks View’ condo is a perfect alternative to staying in a hotel, and is available for WEEKLY rental only during the summer months between Memorial Day through Labor Day. The rental schedule is from Saturday at 3:00 PM through the following Saturday before 11:00 AM. The weekly rate applies even if you are unable to stay the full week. The weekly rental rate includes the cleaning fee and taxes, whereas other rentals charge over $100 for cleaning and 6% use tax. A payment of fifty percent (50%) of the weekly rental rate will be required to secure your reservation. The remaining half of the weekly rate must be received 30 days prior to the reserved arrival date, as well as a refundable security deposit of $200.
This is not just a summertime destination! Winter brings opportunities for snowmobiling, skiing, hiking, or just hiding out with good company and a bottle of wine from one of the local vineyards and wineries. It is only a 20 minute drive from South Haven to Saugatuck, 30 minutes to Holland, or 45 minutes to Kalamazoo. It is two plus hours to Chicago and three hours to Detroit.
This historical town that was founded in 1833 has a nostalgic light house guiding pleasure boats to the multiple marinas scattered along the Black River which runs through this idyllic town. Be sure to visit the South Haven Farm Market, Waterfront Skate Park, Kids Corner Park, Michigan Maritime Museum, South Haven Municipal Marina, South Haven Yacht Club, River Noire Yacht Club, and South Haven Visitors Bureau.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We live in South Haven again after living in Saginaw, MI for 21 years. We used to travel to visit both of our families that are located in the South Haven area. We have fond memories of the many festivals, eateries, and attractions. Janis owned a Hair Salon in downtown South Haven where Maria's Restaurant is now. We hope you enjoy the spectacular view, and create your own memories while renting a week or two in Hawksview.

Why the Owner Chose South Haven, MI, USA:
We have family history that is uniquely tied to the South Haven area and the local Blueberry Industry. Through the years we have made South Haven a vacation destination, often renting condos or choosing local accommodations. We had been looking for several years to purchase a property in South Haven. We had looked at so many houses and condos that we had almost given up. We had a very good feeling the minute we walked into this condo.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Location, Location, Location. 'Hawksview' provides a spectacular view of the Black River and Marina from the spacious living room. The feature of being on the main level with no stairs is hard to find in South Haven. You can park the car and walk to everything is a great benefit of this location.
