Overview

About the property

We have two separate lovely, private condo-style suites with views of Lake Kalamazoo (Saugatuck's Harbor) and Coughlin Park in Saugatuck's downtown Historic District, steps away from premier shopping, dining and boating opportunities.

This listing is for Suite #1 (Amani Suite) which is located on the main floor at the back of the Amazwi Contemporary Art gallery building. See Listing # 40745 for information on Suite #2 (Ndoto Suite) which is on the second floor above the gallery.

The suites are located near the Saugatuck Center for the Arts where entertainment options range from live theater and music performances to workshops for the budding artist, and weekly Farmers' Market in the Summer. Stroll through town to the hand-cranked Chain Ferry that crosses the Kalamazoo River, then walk or take the Inter-Urban bus to world-renowned Oval Beach.

Art Lovers: during your stay, guests of Amazwi Suites enjoy a 10% discount on purchases at the Amazwi gallery, offering original fine art paintings, sculpture, jewelry and unique crafts from Africa.

About Wally

Amazwi gallery offers contemporary African paintings, sculpture, jewelry and unique crafts. 'Amazwi' is the Zulu word for voices, and out mission is to bring the voices (as communicated through their choice of media) of African artists and artisans to Southwest Michigan.

Wally purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Wally chose Southwest

This is a great 'in-town' location because it is within walking distance of everything, yet it is on a side street removed from the restaurants and bars so there is not street/sidewalk traffic at night. Across the street is Coughlin Park and views of Lake Kalamazoo Harbor.

Couldn't get much better!

  • 5 of 5

This rental is even better in person- clean, bright and great location with nice views of the water. Wally is a friendly, gracious host and it was so interesting talking with him about his trips to Africa. We loved our stay in the Amani suite and will definitely return!

Great find

  • 5 of 5

We chose this apartment for our Wedding Weekend, it was perfect ! Walking distance to all the shops and restaurants in Saugatuck and a great view of the water. The apartment was cozy and had everything that we needed. Best of all was the property manager, Audrey, she made our stay very special. We will definitely be returning.
