THE B-HIVE ON THE NORTH BEACH: 5 BDRMS/3 FULL BATHS SLEEPS 10!

South Haven House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3 Full Bathrooms, Accommodates up to ten (10) guests comfortably.

The 'B-Hive' is available on a weekly basis only between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Shorter stays are allowed September through May with a two night minimum. This beach house is perfectly located just steps away from South Haven's beautiful North Beach. The key to this location is that there are no huge hills nor endless staircases to climb when walking to and from the beach. This is an important detail many property owners forget to share when describing the location of their property!!!

The B-Hive has five (5) bedrooms with three (3) full baths and is the ultimate family retreat. The bedrooms consist of four queen beds and the fifth bedroom has one combination twin trundle bed. All of the rooms are tastefully decorated with antique furniture and reproduction pieces providing a comfortable feel throughout.

Please click on our up to date calendar to see if your desired dates are currently available.

New fixtures, finishes and furnishings!!!: The house has been remodeled with new finishes and appliances while maintaining the feel of it's original character and architectural details. The outdoor patio is approximately 400 square feet and is perfect for a barbecue after a relaxing day at the beach. Within walking distance are several excellent restaurants, parks, shops, and the new municipal marina.

With something for everyone, the B-Hive is without question the best location for your family's summer vacation!

Please click on our availability calendar to see if your dates are available.

Three full baths!!!: We often hear from our guests that previously rented homes that accommodate ten (10) guests with only one or two bathrooms. Do not spend your vacation waiting in line to use the bathroom. The B-Hive has three beautiful bathrooms for your use. Two full bathrooms are located on the first floor and one full bathroom is located on the second floor. The first floor south bathroom is a private en-suite bath dedicated to that bedroom. There is also a 50 gallon, high efficiency, quick recovery hot water heater so the last of your group taking a shower does not have to do so with ice cold water.

Just a few of the many details we paid attention to when remodeling the B-Hive.

Please click on our availability calendar to see if your dates are available.

No hills! No stairs! No bluffs!: Remember these words when booking your family's summer vacation. How relaxing is the vacation when you have to walk up an endless flight of stairs after a long relaxing day at the beach?

We love South Haven! It is a place that is very special to our family. We have welcomed and said good bye to members of our family on the beach. Our children are the fifth generation in our family enjoying the beautiful beaches of South Haven.

Michael Biedermann purchased this house in 1998

We are parents of four young children. We wanted a beach house to escape from the hustle and bustle and focus on family. Historic Monroe Park is the neighborhood that is directly adjacent to the North Beach. The key to this location is there are no huge hills nor endless staircases to climb up and down when going to and from the beach. Kind of an important thing to remember with small children and grandparents who want to join you down at the waters edge.

B-Happy @ B-Hive

  • 5 of 5
Do not hesitate to make your reservation for the B-Hive right now! It is beautiful, CLEAN, has great layout for large groups, 3 full baths, very well stocked kitchen, high quality furnishings and is well maintained. Very new renovations are lovely. Location is perfect, literally no more than a 2-minute straight shot to the beach and concession stand. We had 6 adults and 5 yo and 8 yo grandsons and we all fell in love with the B-Hive, Lake Michigan and South Haven. Big hits enjoyed by all: 11 mile bike ride and picnic lunch on the Kal-Haven bike trail, the beach, The Taste restaurant, Golden Brown Bakery donuts, breakfast at The Phoenix Cafe, suckers from the "bridge master" when we crossed bridge walking to downtown, the Village Market grocery and SO much more. Village Market has good organic selections and specialty items for individual dietary needs. Michael, the owner is great to work with. Give him a call!

The B-Hive was a perfect vacation home for my family and I. We had 3 small children with us, and the accomodations were perfect. We will be back to South Haven again!

This was the second time we (group of friends back to the 60's) have stayed in the B-Hive. Love the house inside and out; close to the beach, plenty of room, nicely decorated. Close to downtown South Haven which is nice for shopping and eating and so close to the lake.
We do this annually and will probably go back yet again.

The B-Hive house was very clean, nice, and well equipped. We had 9 adults and it was so nice to get my family together and not have to burden my mom by piling into her house. The location was great for small kids and my 84 year old grandma who could get to the beach without stairs! We easily walked to the marina, downtown, park, and beach. The Kal-Haven trailhead is about 1 mile from this house, and the athletic ones used it. We're in the process of reserving for next summer in a Biederman property in this location of North Beach and this will likely become a family tradition.

Owner's Response: The B-Hive is located in the Historic Monroe Park neighborhood of South Haven Michigan. This historic neighborhood is bordered to the west by the expansive and beautiful North Beach. The house is just south of Avery Street which is at the north end of the North Beach. This location is ideal in that the concession stand is right at the bottom of Avery Street and the top of the beach. The concession stand offers a variety of food, beverages, ice cream as well as public rest rooms and a foot shower. The B-Hive is actually less than one mile to downtown South Haven which is at the intersection of Phoenix and Center Streets. This location is so convenient that once your grocery shopping is completed, you will not need to get back in the car until the dreaded ride home!

Please take a moment to review our current on-line availability calendar to see if your desired dates are available. We have also posted our rates on our listing as well. Thanks for taking the time to read our reviews and response. We hope you find them helpful in making the best selection for your vacation rental.

Great set-up, great location

  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay at the B-hive. The location is perfect as it is very close to North beach without the endless steps, but because it is tucked away off the road still feels secluded. The owners added extra landscaping last year which adds privacy and beauty to the property as well. We had some special circumstances arise prior to our trip that put us in a difficult position. When I called to explain it to the owner he bent over backwards to accomodate us. No hassels. I will definitely be staying here again.
