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 Saugatuck

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.

Car: recommended

Ox-Bow offers a variety of art classes throughout the Summer.

Great suite with a view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 2 nights and found it very clean, inviting, and quiet. The suite is in a great location and we loved that we could have our morning coffee and look out at the lake. We would definitely stay here again!

Would highly recommend this property! Location is within walking distance of everything in the town. Wally our host was fast to respond (contacted us rapidly even when he was on a vacation himself!) Great place and would request to rent again!

Appealing location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the suite. For a couple, it is a comfortable size, roomy bedroom and bath and steps from the water. It was so nice to walk out to the Lake in the morning with my coffee - very peaceful and there is a small deck/outdoor space as well. The unit is quiet, clean and on the backside of the gallery so it's fairly private. So easy to walk to local restaurants, coffee shops, walk through the beautiful neighborhoods, etc. The gallery staff were very pleasant and professional to deal with and for the price, this is a terrific value. The only negative was the deck area being next to a small driveway of a private home and parking lot. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderfully, Peaceful

Beautiful suite in the heart of Sagatuck. Beautifully appointed, very clean & comfy. Brilliant use of the space. Loved how close everything was to the action & a very short walk to the Kalamazoo River.
