MICHIANA #2: TWO BEDROOM ONE BATH IN DOWNTOWN SOUTH HAVEN!

South Haven Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Queen Bedrooms, 1 Full Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Michiana Apartment #2 is available WEEKLY ONLY between Memorial Day and Labor Day. The summer rental schedule is from Sunday after 3:00PM through the following Sunday before 10:00AM. If you want to stay for less than a week, you can but the full weekly rate will apply.

Michiana #2 is an affordable two bedroom, one bath ground level apartment ideally located on the northeast corner of Michigan Avenue and Indiana Avenue in downtown South Haven, Michigan.

The Michiana's original structure was built in the late 1800s as a large single family home. Years ago it was converted into four separate apartments with two one bedroom and two two bedroom units. Apartment #2 has two spacious bedrooms with one queen bed in each bedroom. Each bedroom also has a closet, a dresser and a chair. The living room has comfortable seating as well as a table and chairs for dining or a game of cards. Apartment #2 has had both mechanical and cosmetic updates while still retaining some of the original historic details and finishes. The apartment has a very functional floor plan (see pictures) that can comfortably accommodate a family of four or two adult couples.

There is an outdoor deck directly adjacent to the apartment with southwestern exposure which gets nice afternoon sun. There is also a natural gas Weber grill on the deck making so convenient to grill dinner outside. Directly next to the deck is the off street parking area so you do not have to carry your luggage or your groceries too far when loading and unloading.

It sounds like such a cliche', but the location is truly ideal. The Michiana is what we like to call 'Close, but not too close!'. By this we mean that it is an easy walk home from the restaurants and night life on Phoenix Street, yet far enough away that you can still sleep peacefully at night. The walk to South Beach is only three blocks west straight down Michigan Avenue. This is the best of small town Americana! Have your morning coffee and sweet roll on a bench on Main Street, or in this case Phoenix Street, and watch people stroll by. Then head back home to change into your swim suit and walk down to the beach for a day of fun in the sun. We feel the Michiana is centrally located between downtown South Haven and the beautiful South Beach.

We hope you agree and can come to South Haven and stay at the Michiana. Remember...

Location. Location. Location.

We will see you at the beach!

About Michael Biedermann

We live in the north suburbs of Chicago however we feel South Haven is our home away from home. We can not say enough great things about the community and the people of South Haven. We both have very demanding schedules and spending time together in South Haven allows us to focus on each other and our four children.

Michael Biedermann purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Michael Biedermann chose South Haven

It seems with most beach towns in Southwest Michigan, if you stay at the beach, you have to drive in to town. Conversely, if you stay in town, you have to drive to the beach. South Haven offers the ability to walk to both. The South Beach and downtown area are only a short three block walk from the Michiana. Life is good and the living is easy!

What makes this apartment unique

We enjoy the easy access to the South Beach as well as the less than five minute walk to downtown South Haven. Once the groceries are purchased, there is no need for your car again. We have said it so many times but it is true... once you come to South Haven, it feels as though all of life's struggles seem to be lifted. We hope you are able to experience the same feeling!

SPECIAL NOTE: This apartment is located in the same building as our other listing: http://www.vrbo.com/440330 which is right next door! This adds one additional bedroom and one additional bath. A great set up for additional friends and family!!!

Great long weekend trip to South Haven!

  • 4 of 5
We had a fabulous trip to South Haven last weekend and Michiana really was the perfect location--just a few blocks to the Lake, the marina and the city center. Can't wait to come back with friends and stay at Michiana again! We stayed in and cooked one night-the kitchen had everything that we needed. Really appreciated how clean the unit was upon arrival and LOVED the renovated bathroom and porch.

Charming apartment in great location between downtown South Haven and Lake Michigan beach

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic place to stay. This was a perfect location in South Haven. I went with my girlfriend for a weekend trip. Easy drive from the Chicago suburbs. Once we got to the apartment, we were pleasantly surprised on how everything was walking distance away. Activities for us included: gorgeous/clean beach (great scenic lighthouse too), antique shopping all along the main road of South Haven, great food (Italian - Tello, great date night location; Phoenix street cafe - if there for breakfast, order the California eggs Benedict and thank me later - corned beef hash also phenomenal), boat and jet ski rentals, etc. The owner of this building was very hospitable and came to the apartment when we got there to make sure everything was in order. My girlfriend and I are already planning our return trip :)

Feel at home at Michiana

  • 5 of 5
This was our family's first vacation to Lake Michigan, and I'm so pleased we found the Michiana in South Haven. After doing a lot of research, we chose South Haven because of the town's layout and easy beach access, unlike many other Lake Michigan beach towns. With a small budget, we weren't expecting to stay in luxury, but thankfully we found the Michiana! I was thrilled to find a cozy place so close to the beach and within a safe neighborhood. With a two-year-old, we needed a place that would be an easy retreat for naps, etc.

Michael was quick to respond and provided answers to all my questions in detail. I was amazed at how easy it was to rent one of his properties. Everything was set up perfectly when we arrived, and we had no trouble finding the location or getting settled. Don't hesitate to contact him if you have any concerns. He wants to make sure you enjoy your stay and will do what he can to make it happen.

We spent most of the time walking around the town, along the beach and taking in the picturesque views. The neighborhood in which the Michiana is situated is beautiful and filled with lovely older homes. You will enjoy your stroll to the beach along the pretty streets!

We hope to visit again - we'd like to stay during the peak summer months to experience warmer days on the beach and u-pick blueberry season!

Don't bother with a hotel room; you'll get much more mileage from a property rental like this one. If you are looking for a budget-friendly family getaway, rent the Michiana; you won't regret it.

A Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
This was my first visit to South Haven MI. I was so taken in with the family oriented town, with beautiful homes, yards, and flower gardens. For a person who lives in Phoenix, AZ, this town was a piece of heaven. The Michiana was above and beyond what I had envisioned. The place was so clean, and decorated in such a lovely way. My sister met me for a getaway time and the 2 bedroom split layout provided us plenty of space and privacy.

The location is perfect, a few blocks to the beach and lighthouse and a few blocks to the downtown shops and restaurants. We never needed to drive anywhere once we were there. We met so many nice people and families during out time there.

The most important part of this VRBO for me was the owner Michael. I had an extenuating circumstance that Michael was willing to work with me on. Not only did he communicate quickly with me by e mail but he took the time to call me and work out a favorable outcome. He was willing to go the extra mile to make our stay perfect.

I would highly recommend the Michiana My sister and I had a beautiful week of relaxing on the porch, walking the beautiful neighborhoods, catching amazing sunsets by the lighthouse, and of course reading books on the beach. I am already looking forward to a return visit to South Haven and I would stay in any of Michael's properties.

LOVE IT!!!

  • 5 of 5
Sometimes when you find a property on the internet you get there and it isn't all it was represented to be. The Michiana does not fall into that category. If anything the pictures don't do it justice. The location is perfect! When a family issue arose Michael (the owner) was BEYOND accommodating! He was ALWAYS accessible and treated me as a valued guest. I will be coming back to South Haven later this summer and will definitely be staying here again. It's nice to know I no longer have to look for a place to stay...I have found my home away from home! I would highly recommend this property to anyone. Don't look any further. You won't be disappointed!

Owner's Response: Dear Future Guests,
If we can make a prediction, it is that life can be unpredictable! Coordinating multiple schedules, family members, etc. can be stressful just to get away from it all and relax for a few days. At times, simply scheduling a weekend away can create stress. When an issue came up with this particular guests schedule, we worked with them and tried our best to accommodate their needs. We have enough stress in our lives trying to do all that we are trying to do. We do not need to add more stress just to get away. We want our guests to feel relaxed and rejuvenated and not rushed nor stressed. For off season weekends, we allow you to arrive and depart at your convenience so long as the dates immediately preceding or following your stay are not reserved. If there are special needs, please let us know. We are happy to help.
Please take a moment to review our current on-line availability calendar to see if your desired dates are available. If not, email us and tell us what you are looking for. We may have another property that is currently available. We look forward to hearing from you and hope we can accommodate your family or group in South Haven at the Michiana!
Sincerely,
Karen and Michael Biedermann

The perfect location....

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was not only perfect for the 4 of us, but the location is fantastic. We walked everywhere; to the beach, to town, to the marina.....It is situated in a beautiful neighborhood and had all of the conveniences we needed. The owners were easy to work with and everything was as promised. I would stay again in a heartbeat!!
