2BR RENTAL NEAR NORTH BEACH, CLOSE TO DOWNTOWN AND MARINA

South Haven Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Great in the Fall!

The indoor pool is open year round. This condo is within walking distance to everything in South Haven. For those guests that are staying for a week or more it's also a great home location spot that lets you visit other towns and beaches along Lake Michigan like Saugatuck, Douglas, Holland, and Grand Haven.

Located on Black River Street, Harborside is just two blocks from the bridge and Stanley Johnston Memorial Park–where the art shows are held. The property has a large yard that is perfect for outdoor activities, an indoor swimming pool and hot tub, and a large outdoor sunning and picnic deck.

From the private condo deck you'll get a view of the Black River launch, letting you combine your morning coffee with some people watching. A ten minute walk to town puts you in the heart of shops, restaurants, a movie theater, bike and kayak rentals, boat and fishing excursions and the marina. Several night spots feature live music and fantastic views.

During the summer, there is a Saturday farmer’s market at the downtown pavilion. There are also several public beaches a ten minute walk from the condo. Festivals, concerts, art fairs and Lake Michigan sunsets on the pier–all are an easy walk away.

I am a graphic designer and creative person that has worked in advertising for many years. I have my own design agency and also like to paint as a hobby.

I have always wanted to get into vacation rentals and last year I did just that. This is my second season renting the condo out in South Haven and I really enjoy it. It's fun to meet people as they arrive, but it's also satisfying to see the happy, rested faces after their stay is over.

Connie purchased this condo in 2008

This is a really great location in South Haven that's close to everything. You can walk to the beaches, the marina, downtown or along the Black River.

I bought the property because I grew up in the area. It's a great place for my family to get together and we use it when it's not rented out.

I like to keep the property clean and well equipped, so we have beach equipment and toys, as well as towels and blankets.

If you like cooking, the kitchen has everything you need–dishes and utensils, cookware, even spices.

We have a few board games and movies. That's nice the night you come in and also helps entertain the troops.

We had a great time, again. Connie is a GREAT host and makes our stay great every time. If want a great place, walking distance to town or the beach than you should stay here. She has great neighbors and everything you need to have a wonderful stay in South Haven. We will stay again as long as Connie will have us :)

JUST WHAT WE NEEDED

  • 5 of 5
We had a great experience with our rental, and with Connie. She was always available to answer any questions we had (like how to adjust the thermostat, where to find the space heater and air mattress, etc). The bedrooms are good size, and the upstairs is warm and inviting. The upper deck is perfect for having coffee while the sunrises. Short 5-10 min walk to beach and downtown. All the conveniences of being at home. Clean and comfy (better than any beds I've had at hotels!). Thanks for a great trip Connie.

ANOTHER GREAT EXPERIENCE

We arrived for our trip and of course you're made to feel right at home. The place is spacious and is quiet. You can walk to everything, including the beach that is two blocks a way. If you want the true South Haven experience come here!!! We plan on coming again next year :)

GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed over the Fourth of July and had a wonderful time. Connie was very friendly and helpful. The condo was a good size for our family of four. There were air mattresses too in case we wanted to have additional company. We were very happy with the location because we were easily able to walk into town and walk to the beach. It was also nice having the indoor pool, it rained a couple of the days we were there, but the kids were still able to swim.

NOT VERY QUIET

  • 3 of 5
Upon check in my first impression was the front entrance was dark and damp... immediately entering the front door was stairs going up and a narrow hall where the two bedrooms were located. The upstairs was charming, nice appliances and sofas, and floors. The unit was extremely clean and had a nice small upper deck with grill and partial view of the marina. It was a distance to beach to walk, but not terrible.

Downstairs was where the bedrooms were located, it was dark and the floors from the above main living area creaked and every foot step could be heard. Seemed like all I could hear was water running and footsteps... it was not a great set up and traveling with an infant who still took naps with the loud living space above was not condusive for our family, my 8 year old and husband were the only other people in the house and it sounded like a party was going on upstairs, the floors were terribly loud.

The beds.... well they were both terribly uncomfortable and one was on a slant, they were old and mattress not comfortable, pillows were lumpy and old.

The aero bed mattress looked impressive once inflated but I awoke at 3 am to my daughter on the hard wood floor because the bed had deflated- and only had a battery powered devise which took too long, so she slept on sofa remainder of the trip because a friend joined us on the following day to use the second bedroom. It was cramped quarters for three adults and two children.

would not recommend this rental for a family with children, naps were impossible. The bedrooms were musty and damp smelling... and none of the bedroom doors locked.

Also at night there was no light on the exterior of the building and it was pitch black out with no light to try and get the key in the lock...

And lastly across the street facing the marina was a bunch of trailers, a barn and campers having late night gatherings and shooting off fireworks or what sounded like cannons, great for sleeping children.

The pool house was run down and not well kept, small and people kept doors propped open with rocks, quests did not appeal to us.

Owner's Response: I am truly sorry that this guest had a less than satisfying stay. I enjoy seeing rested, happy faces when my guests check out. This is our first year renting the condo and it’s an ongoing process to improve and upgrade the amenities. We get a lot great ideas from the guests and until now great reviews. I checked all of the points that this guest complained about and have had Building Management re-set the outdoor light timer. I found the air mattress was punctured during (or just prior to) her stay and have replaced it. Although I understand noise sensitivity I do not agree that this condo is loud. This area is much quieter than downtown or the marina and is also close to everything in South Haven–a short walk everywhere. The beds are comfortable. The linens are new this season along with the bath towels. I did replace two pillows. Most guests love the pool. The pool is in the middle of a three year renovation. Next spring the decks will be replaced. Although I try to make that clear, it’s possible she did not realize that prior to booking. I checked the door locks. The locks work fine but they did not catch in the door jam. I had those repaired. I also checked the humidity level and found it was normal not damp. I appreciate her feedback but wish it had been better!
