Overview

South Haven Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bdrm/1 Bath Ideally Located Between Downtown And South Beach

THE MICHIANA APARTMENT #4.

Available WEEKLY ONLY between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

The 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.

The Michiana was originally built was 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 #4 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 #4 has recently 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 a sun soaked outdoor deck directly adjacent to the apartment with western exposure which gets nice afternoon sun. There is also a natural gas Weber grill off the deck. 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!

A great set up for additional family or your best friends but you still have your own private space!!!

Apt #3 and Apt #4 at the Michiana

  • 5 of 5

I previously rented Michiana Apartment #3 and thoroughly enjoyed it. Last weekend I stayed at Michiana Apartment #4 and enjoyed it as well. Both Apartments 3 and 4 are on the second floor and have great natural light. Apartment 4 has two bedrooms and one full bath. Each bedroom has a queen size bed and is located at the opposite end of the apartment which adds a little privacy. The bathroom in Apartment 4 is recently remodeled with very nice finishes. Like Apartment #3, there is a large, newly constructed exterior deck for Apartment #4. Given the weather, the deck was not used however I hope to enjoy it on my next visit this summer. Both apartments are well furnished with everything one would expect to find in a vacation rental by owner. These two apartments both have a higher attention to detail than some other locations I have previously stayed at. The best thing about the Michiana Apartments is the location. They are directly centered between the South Beach and the many restaurants and bars in downtown South Haven. Everything is within walking distance and most everything is a very short walk. Michael has been very easy to work with and always responds promptly to all inquiries. This last visit was admittedly on very short notice and he was extremely accommodating. I will return for a visit to South Haven again this year and when I do, I will be staying at the Michiana Apartments.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

It was a weekend of intense study of curriculum for next year for our families, as we are both homeschooling moms with the same ideas, but we live in different states. We met for three days, and had plenty of room to spread out material that we had gathered over the years, as well as clean out paperwork, review new curriculum online, and spend some time just hanging out. The place was very clean, organized, and easy to manage. The kitchen table provided a nice opportunity to switch off cooking duty-one sat and enjoyed being nurtured (such a big thing for us moms) while the other prepared the meal. The living room was nice and cozy, providing an atmosphere for stimulating conversation, as well as catching up on each other's lives. The rooms were cozy and peaceful, and had the weather been warmer, the deck would have been perfect for afternoon cocktails. To be "holed up" anywhere, this was a perfect place. If we each would have had two more days-I think all of our "to do" items would have been accomplished. The coffee shop was a short three block walk away, and there was a used bookstore around the corner. We could see the frozen lake, and the downtown area/marina, was only about a five minute walk.

The owner was easy to work with, and very accommodating. I would stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review Kelly. We appreciate receiving reviews as it helps our future guests understand what you liked about the accommodations and the location. It is interesting to note that this stay was for a March work weekend to review school curriculum and the Michiana Apartment #4 seemed to work for this purpose. We feel our off season weekend rates are very affordable and hope you are able to take advantage of these savings. Please take a moment to review the "RATES" page on our listing which breaks the rates down per month. If you see the rates are still not within your budget, let us know what your budget is and we will do our best to accommodate you. Also, please click on "CALENDAR" to see our current online availability calendar. If your desired dates are reserved, please check out Apartment #2 at the Michiana. The link to Apartment #2 is http://www.vrbo.com/343005. Apartment #4 is directly above Apartment #2. This is an ideal situation for two small families, four couples or four adults looking for accommodations under the same roof. We look forward to hearing from you and hope we can accommodate your group in South Haven at the Michiana! Sincerely, Michael Biedermann

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was my third stay at the Michiana! I have stayed in Apartment 2 and 3 and now Apartment 4. I have been extremely impressed with the accommodations and the host. There was a "weather situation" while I was here and I couldn't have been more comfortable. The apartment is clean, well furnished and had everything I needed. I was able to still attend a local church, get my groceries, have wonderful meals at local restaurants, attend the theater. This is definitely my favorite place to stay. The on-line description was totally accurate. I am looking forward to staying again this spring and summer. Each time I visit, I discover more places to visit! Hiking the dunes is awesome in the summer, but try it in the winter. This is an experience we should all have. You can walk anywhere: library, post office, shopping, church, restaurants, pier. South Haven has a lot to offer; however, the owners of this property make it an exceptional experience. Thank you so much for all your hospitality.

The location is truly ideal and in the center of where you want to be! Only a short three block walk to all of the quaint shops and restaurants located in downtown South Haven as well as a short three block walk to the South Beach. The location is also very residential and quiet so you do not have to listen to the late night crowd howl at the moon when they stumble out of the local watering holes... which is something I never did when I was there age. Smile now please!

A great set up for additional family or your best friends but you still have your own private space!!!
