About the Property

4 BR, 3 baths, unbeatable location close to town and beach.

This charming +100 year-old Victorian home is located in desirable South Beach. It is two blocks from downtown South Haven and four short blocks from the main beach entrance. A major renovation of the house was just completed.

The kitchen and dining room were expanded and completely redone. You'll find everything you need in the new, large kitchen, and enough room for multiple chefs!. The dining room table seats +14. The large living room has plenty of seating, a flat-screen TV and a gas fireplace.

The first-floor bedroom has a queen bed and an en suite bathroom (the bathroom has a second door opening to the front hallway so that it also serves as a first-floor powder room). Also located on the first floor is a tiny hall bedroom with a twin bed -- close the door on one side, close the drapes at the other, and you're ready for bed!

Upstairs, the Purple and Orange Bedrooms each have a queen bed. Flexible sleeping arrangements are provided in “the Dorm," with two bunk beds (one bunk is a triple) and a queen bed. There are two large, full bathrooms on the second floor which can easily accommodate a crowd., one of the bathrooms also acts as an ensuite to the Purple bedroom.

The outdoor space is superlative. The house is set on a double lot, so the yard is unusually large for South Beach, and features a badminton/volleyball set, fire pit, hammock, and basketball area. It is beautifully landscaped with oak leaf hydrangeas, catmint, grasses, lilacs, wegelia, and more.

You can enjoy the outdoors in a variety of ways here. The front porch is seasonally screened or closed in. Off the dining room is a large patio/deck with BBQ, dining area, and hand shower. The patio table has a tiltable umbrella for shade protection during the day, and two super-comfortable benches; with side chairs the table can accommodate up to 12 people. We also have a small kiddie table with benches.

For the most part, during High Season the property is only rented weekly. However, there are a few weeks each summer which are available Monday-Friday only. MONDAY-FRIDAY RENTALS ARE DISCOUNTED- please contact Owner.


A/C and high-speed internet (complementary).

Check-in is at 4:00; check-out is at 10:00. Cancellation is allowed despite what is set in the VRBO text -- see our rental agreement.

THIS HOUSE CAN BE RENTED AS PART OF A FAMILY COMPOUND FOR ONLY TWO WEEKS DURING THE HIGH SEASON -- See http://www.vrbo.com/800039

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

Why the Owner Chose South Haven, MI, USA:
We bought this lovely 100-year-old Victorian charmer for its superb location and extremely spacious yard. The house is located just two blocks to town and four short blocks to the main entrance to the South Beach. We furnished it simply and comfortably. The huge yard is beautifully landscaped and offers plenty of room for football and sunbathing. It was designed to be a real family home for both our family and our guests..
