About the Property

Rents Sunday to Sunday. Steps to the beach! Only $4500 per week!

Rented Sunday to Sunday, this 1960's-style home has recently been totally transformed inside and out into a spacious, charming and modern vacation getaway. Having one of the best locations on South Beach, this lake house is only a half block from the award-winning beach and is directly across the street from Kids Corner, a large children's playground and ball field. As an added bonus, you will enjoy an easy walk to the famous lighthouse pier, marina and South Haven's delightful downtown. With 5 bedrooms, (including two spacious master bedrooms) and 3 1/2 baths, this home comfortably accommodates 13. It's the perfect summer retreat that offers something for everyone--a place to relax, to have fun and to create memories.
On the outside...Begin and end your days on the brand new expansive front patio or the new second floor wrap-around deck. Both offer a wonderful gathering place with unobstructed, fabulous views of the lake and South Haven's breathtaking sunsets. There's also a large backyard for playtime plus a charcoal grill and eating space for the perfect summer barbeque experience. Both front and back yards are enhanced by beautiful landscape design.
On the inside...An open floor plan creates an easy flow from room-to-room which is particularly necessary for bigger groups. With distinctive beach and lake-themed touches throughout, this home screams 'vacation'! The newly remodeled, roomy kitchen and dining area are fully equipped for those days and nights you decide to eat in. A huge family room awaits those who want to watch TV, play a game (provided) or read a book from the collection supplied. There's also a full basement with a TV and pool table for those that want their own space. Bedrooms are furnished with new beds and each has its own beach personality.
Whether inside or outside, this home boasts all the amenities necessary to truly call this 'A Great Lake House'. Call us today and experience it for yourself.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: Gary and Nancy Gage Although they live in Chicago most of the year, Gary and Nancy discovered South Haven eight years ago and literally fell in love with it upon first sight. Gary grew up in New Jersey and had fond memories of going to 'the shore' every summer. When he first saw the expanse of the beach and shoreline of South Haven, it brought him back to those summers at the shore. They purchased their first South Haven property in the South Beach area and have always considered that decision to be one of the best they ever made for their family. By the way, if you see someone in town feeding a golden retriever black cherry ice cream, it's the owners and their dog, Joey! Take a minute and say hello -- they would love to meet you!

Why South Haven, MI, USA:
Gary and Nancy purchased this property since it was just a stone's throw from their family retreat. With a growing family, it was a perfect place for the overflow of relatives and a wonderful way to introduce the wonders of South Haven to others.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
A Great Lake House offers many unique benefits to renters. The home is roomy and welcoming at the same time. The sunset views from the upper deck or the front patio are amazing. Each night brings you a new photo opportunity. Having the beach just steps away is so convenient; you might even want to come up from the beach for lunch. A beautiful stroll or bike ride along the lake and the Black River leads you into downtown South Haven where great restaurants, quaint shops, and a wonderful farmers market await you. Park your car for the week and you will never have to move it!
