LAKE MICHIGAN'S PREMIER 2 BR BEACHFRONT CONDO-BOOK YOUR FALL VACATION!

South Haven Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms 2 Bathroom Sleeps 6 : Lakefront, coastline views, pool, on beach

PRICES BASED ON FREE ECHECK PAYMENT AND NOT CREDIT CARD(NOT PROPERLY DONE ON 'BOOK NOW' FEATURE).

Please review availability on my calender. Weekly rentals ONLY in Summer months!! Please consider our 1 BR GROUND FLOOR CORNER LAKE FACING unit also available at this complex(VRBO #100633)!!

The North Shore Condominium complex has my two bedroom modern, 900+ sq. ft. TOP FLOOR CORNER unit on Lake Michigan. This LAKE FACING unit is fully furnished and comfortably sleeps six adults with a king-size bed, 2 twin beds and a pullout couch. This condo is considered to have the best Coastline views in the complex and maybe the whole town!!

The unit is both poolside and beachside and it features unbeatable sunsets and coastal views while sitting within the unit. The private pool is just steps away from your bed and the private beach.

The complex is next to a city Park and just a short walk from the quaint downtown of South Haven where there are plenty of shops and great little restaurants.

This historical town (founded in 1833) has two light houses guiding pleasure boats to the multiple marinas scattered along the Black river which runs through this idyllic town.

It takes only 20 minutes to drive from South Haven to Saugatuck, 30 minutes to Holland, two plus hours to Chicago and three hours to Detroit.

South Haven, not just a summertime destination!!

Also, please see our 1 BR CORNER unit with great views as well in the same building @ VRBO #100633 and also consider my other property with golf in Naples, Florida, Homeaway # 968390.

About Harold Neal

Welcome to your “home away from home”!!

We have traveled to many parts of the world and we feel South Haven is one of the gems of the world with it’s quaintness of the small town, the slow flowing Black River running through town, the wide, golden beaches and the famous, red light house protecting the many pleasure boaters.

We hope you enjoy our condo as much as we do and we hope you find your vacation relaxing, fun filled and memorable. We encourage you to visit our LAKE FACING 1 bedroom unit at this same compex on VRBO #100633 & our Naples Condo site as seen on Homeaway # 968390 to enjoy staying on a golf course and nearby the Gulf of Mexico beaches.

Welcome to our home!!

Harold & Marij

Harold Neal purchased this condo in 2013

Why Harold Neal chose South Haven

I had the great fortune of being born and raised in South Haven in 1956. As a kid, I thought this small town was too slow for my likes especially during the long, snowy winters. As I matured, I realized how lucky I was to have experienced the lifestyle of this community.

I remember participating in the clubs and sports the community had to offer, enjoying the Blueberry Festival and Fourth of July events. Some of my favorite activities were water skiing or fishing in Lake Michigan and snow skiing at nearby Timber Ridge. We have cooked blueberry pancakes for breakfast on the beach during the summer and climbed the ice bergs in the winter.

I have brought my wife and kids back for the past twenty five plus years. My kids have experienced the joys of the town throughout their life and I know they will continue the traditions with their children.

I hope that you can feel a small piece of what joys this town has given to me during your week vacationing in South Haven.

What makes this condo unique

We have admired this property over the years when we took our kids to the public beach at Packard Park. My wife always said “that is the place we should find a unit in”. It has so much to offer with it’s own private beach and pool. The terrace is huge and is great for entertaining or eating your dinner while watching the sunset. This dream continued for many, many years until we purchased out 1 BR unit in 2005 and added this 2 BR unit in 2013.

We love our units since they face the lake and they are so comfortable to sit and read. We love sleeping with the window open and hearing the waves crash on the shore. It is great just walking out the door onto the beach for a stroll to the North Pier.

The location of the unit and the size of the town allows you to walk into town for shopping or meals. Go try the onion rings of Clementine’s or the bucket of perch at the Thirsty Perch in town. You must go to Captain Nemos for ice cream and don’t forget about the Golden Brown Bakery.

Once there I am sure you will agree that it’s great having a pool and being on the lake at the same time and that you will want to return year after year to realize life’s simple pleasures!!!

South Haven Serenity

  • 5 of 5
Outstanding views of Lake Michigan. It felt like we were in a penthouse suite in this 3rd floor/top floor corner unit Even when the weather wasn't as nice as we had hoped the relaxation of looking out onto Lake Michigan and listening to the waves calming effects made everyday memorable. I typically have trouble getting/staying asleep at night but the peaceful sound of the waves helped me sleep better than I have in a very long time. The condo was very comfortable and nicely decorated. My temporary office was set up with a laptop computer on the window ledge overlooking Lake Michigan, hows that for telecommuting. We are looking into another visit this fall as we were so impressed. The owner of the unit provided excellent customer service and addressed any questions or concerns we had promptly and with courtesy. I would recommend this condo to anyone except those who have difficulty with stairs.

Thank you for the great hospitality,
Craig

The perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5
An absolutely perfect location for gathering with friends, family or just staying by yourself. The accommodations were very nice, and the maintenance of the grounds & units was impeccable. Watching the weather over the lake from the patio, or from the comfort of the condo is a memory unmatched anywhere. Its a repeat logging destination for sure. Enjoyed every moment of two full weeks.

Owner's Response: Thanks Regina, we were so happy to hear how much you enjoyed the Condo and complex. We love being able to hear the wave crash onto the shore and take long walks on the beach throughout the year. The park next door with the dunes makes you feel you are the only one around. We hope to see you soon!

Ocean with no sharks

  • 5 of 5
The home is very clean and well supplied with kitchen needs. Having the "ocean" view and access is delightful. The pool is warm and clean too. Sandy does a great job of keeping the property sharp.

Owner's Response: Thanks Nancy for your review. It is funny, my wife's European family calls it a "Ocean" as well when they were here last summer. Besides no sharks, we also like the fact there is just sand and no salt. It's great having the heated pool if the water temperature is too cool because of a recent storm. Thanks for booking with us again in 2015!!

very nice

  • 5 of 5
very nice set up.. We did a lot of cooking so the large kitchen was very helpful and yes the view was wonderful. only detraction was since the second bed room does not have air conditioning or a window it got quite warm with the door shut, by the way the doors did not completely close do to I guess high humidity. Because it was cool at night we enjoyed having the windows open. we used the big fan to cool the back bedroom .

Owner's Response: Thanks Betty for your review! We also enjoy the large kitchen and hope you enjoyed the new dishwasher! Since the condo get's so much sun, we usually keep the shades closed when we are gone. I am glad the fan helped cooling the spare bedroom. We will look to see if we need to trim the doors to fit better during the high humity times.

South Haven At It's Best!

South Haven At It's Best!
  • 5 of 5
Our off-season week long family vacation to South Haven was perfect. The rental experience was excellent from the first email to the welcoming treats in the 'renter-ready' condo to the prompt return of the deposit-thank you Harold. As regular visitors to SoHaven we enjoyed our favorites like Phoenix St. Cafe and Maria's and then hit the road to Fennville for a tasty Salt of the Earth dinner. The condo location is a short walk into town which we enjoyed many times. I was delighted to prepare lunch in the condo for friends driving through on their way home to the UP - Marquette [my husband's hometown] from wintering in AZ. The 'front row seat' -out the many windows -for each night's sunset is beyond words. Don't miss the Farmer's Market-no matter which season you're in town. The only sad part of our stay was saying goodbye when our week came to a close. We will return. With sincere appreciation.

South Haven is simply AWESOME. Our beaches are the best AND, one can easily walk from either North or South Beach right into town for lunch and shopping. We have a beautiful lighthouse with zero industry coming up our river, we're the sweetest little picturesque gem in Southwest Michigan! I Hope you experience the natural beauty and lovely shops and restaurants we proudly offer our visitors!

Here is what the visitor's bureau has to say: Please visit their site for more information!

Welcome to South Haven - It's a feeling! One that's hard to put into words, but once you visit you'll feel it too. It's an experience you'll never forget. It's what keeps you coming back for more. From the moment you arrive until the time you have to leave, you will know you are some place special. This one-of-a-kind Michigan Beachtown cannot be fully appreciated by reading about it in a brochure, cannot be touched even through the most technologically advanced website, and all the beautiful sunset photos in the world cannot do it justice. But don't take our word for it; come here and see for yourself or trust glowing reviews from publications like: The New York Times, Midwest Living, Michigan Travel Ideas, Chicago Sun Times, Chicago Tribune, Detroit Free Press, Underwater Journal, SkyWest Magazine, Western Parent Magazine, Art Showcase Magazine, and many more!
