The house is a beautiful +100-year-old Victorian home just blocks from the public beach, and the great shops and restaurants in downtown South Haven.
We recently renovated our home, and more enhancements are currently underway. The expansive new kitchen can accommodate multiple chefs, and has pass-through windows to both the outdoor BBQ and dining room. The dining room table easily seats +14. The big sunny living room has loads of comfortable seating and a large flat-screen TV.
The house is well-suited for multi-generational families. The first-floor bedroom has a queen bed and a new ensuite, semi-private bathroom. Also located on the first floor is a small hall bedroom with a twin bed -- close the door on one side, the drapes at the other, and you're ready for bed!
Upstairs, the purple and orange bedrooms each have a queen bed. The purple bedroom has a newly redone ensuite, semi-private bathroom. Flexible sleeping arrangements are provided in “the dorm," with two bunk beds (one bunk is a triple) and a queen bed. There is a new large, full bathroom on the second floor with a big shower and double sinks to easily accommodate a large family. We also offer two pack-and-plays, stair gates, high chair, and more.
There are two indoor/outdoor areas: The front porch is seasonally screened or closed in, and a large patio/deck has BBQ and dining areas. The patio table has a tiltable umbrella for shade protection during the day; two comfortable benches and side chairs accommodate 12 people. A small kiddie table and bench set is for the little ones in your group.
The outdoor areas are beautifully landscaped. The house is set on a double lot, so the yard is exceptionally large for South Beach. We offer a badminton/volleyball set, fire pit, hammock, and basketball area.
An extra treat in this house is the artwork -- the home belongs to a retired fine art dealer. There is a wide variety of art and antiques, most of which are available for sale.
