PERFECT LOCATION TO BEACH AND TOWN!!!! SPECTACULAR VIEWS FROM FRONT & BACK!!

South Haven House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, sleeps 14, 3600 sqft, 3 levels all with decks & views

Once part of the historical Grandview Hotel that overlooked the bluff in 1905, this recently renovated home is 3 levels with decks on each level, front & back - spectacular views up & down the river & to Lake Michigan! You'll enjoy amazing sunsets as well as watching the boats up and down the river. It has 3600 sq ft of beautifully decorated entertaining space with gourmet kitchen that seats 6 at the granite bar with full amenities, 10 person dining table, large family room with multiple seating areas, backyard deck entertaining area with gas grill, firepit, dining table, 4 bedrooms on the 2nd level that sleep 6, one lower level queen sleeper sofa (open in living room), lower level bedroom with queen bed and twin trundle, 3rd level family room loft (has 4 twin beds loft style) with outdoor covered deck with views of river & Lake Michigan!! Home is equipped with 3 LCD TVs, DVD players, dish TV, kids playroom/toys, pack & play, beach toys. One block to town & 3 blocks to the beach - the Perfect location to easily walk to beach or town & enjoy the view!

Few blocks to Kids Corner!: Kids tired of going to the beach and want something different to do?! We are just a short walk over to Kids Corner which is a huge wooden play center with towers, bridges and hidden tunnels! Also slides, swings, tire swings, etc., basketball hoop/court, baseball/softball diamond, picnic tables and lots of grassy area to play other games!!

Concerts and Festivals: We are only a couple minutes walk to the river area where a lot of the free concerts and festivals are held. So, you don't have to pack up everything for the whole day - you can get home quickly any time you want to stop back in and take a break then right back to the festivities in minutes!!!

House made for entertaining: This is a place where we entertain and host our large family every year so we are set up with plenty of places for everyone to sit for eating and lounging around in the family room to watch TV. No more crowded seats with some people left out!!! Same goes for the outside back deck area. There are plenty of tables and chairs, plus a built in bench that lines the perimeter of the deck for extra seating.

Additionally, the third level family room/bedroom loft area is one large open space with 4 twin mattresses (two can be put together for a king bed) in the front of the space, and a large sectional and club chair with flat screen t.v. to the rear of the space and a 3rd level deck with plenty of comfy seating for viewing all of those spectacular sunsets or taking an afternoon nap!

I grew up in South Haven and lived there until I went to college at Michigan State. My immediate and extended family, as well as friends, still live there and I come and stay in my own home every summer! I currently live in Tampa, Florida.

Jill Panella - Owner purchased this house in 2005

This property was lovingly renovated by me after I purchased it in 2005. It was made for entertaining with upgraded amenities and a spacious feel for accomodating your family and friends. It is over 100 years old and was originally part of The Grand Hotel that overlooked the bluff.

Three levels of decks with views of the lake and river from both the front and back of the house!! Very open floor plan for entertaining, as well as extra large seating area in the family room for large parties. Additionally has a third floor family room with amazing views of lake and river and SUNSETS!!!!

Fabulous! Such a lovely home!

Gorgeous home and perfect location! The decorating, the amenities, and the location were wonderful- no one wanted to leave! An absolutely WONDERFUL week- and we hope to be back next summer.
NOTE: Towel rod/toilet paper holder in master bath, toilet paper holder in first floor bath- had been knocked off and marred the paint prior to our visit. Also, the refrigerator started beeping- but after looking up the model online, we fixed it. Sorry for taking the liberty, but who do you call at 10pm on a Sunday.
With great appreciation- Susan Cochran & family
Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and we will be so happy to see you back next year! Sorry about the towel bar and refrigerator!! These things happen with rentals and we fixed the towel bar as soon as possible and I greatly appreciate you taking the initiative with the refrigerator!! Should anything like that ever happen again, Coastal Concierge is available to call at anytime for local service/emergencies.

Just perfect! What can't I say about this place?! The house is so cute and comfortable. The kitchen and living room area are so spacious that even with 12 girls we never felt like we were on top of eachother. The outdoor space is amazing and perfect for big BBQ's. With the beach and downtown only a few steps away we took advantage of everything South Haven had to offer! We will definitely be repeat customers of this gem. Can't thank the Panella's enough!
Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review!! One of the great things about this house is the design of the main living space - you can have a ton of people and have plenty of room without feeling cramped!!! We hope to have you visit again soon!!!

We had such a great time at this Indiana Avenue house. It was perfect for our group and the weekend we spent celebrating a bachelorette party! We felt like we had everything we need - from fire wood and the ultimate grill to a fully stocked kitchen, wifi and a ton of clean towels. The house was beautifully decorated and easily accommodated our group of 12. We loved the view from the top floor and the location could not be beat. We were easily able to walk to town for all of the fun bars and of course to the beach. Thanks to the Panellas for a great stay!
Owner's Response: I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay at our house and had everything you needed!! Thank you for all of the kind words!! We hope to see you again in the near future!

This is a spacious, comfortable house with many amenities. We loved the walking distance to town and the beach. The house is great with small children, both spaces and equipment. Nicely decorated, yet felt very livable.
