The North Shore Condominium complex has my one bedroom modern, 600+ sq. ft. CORNER unit on Lake Michigan. This LAKE FACING ground level unit is fully furnished and comfortably sleeps four adults with a king-size bed and a pullout U-shaped leather couch.

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 2 bedroom unit at this same compex on Homeaway #3469300 & 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 2005

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.

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 it in 2005.

We love our unit since it faces the lake and is 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 here 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!!!

FOURTH CELEBRATION

  • 5 of 5
This was our second summer renting this condo. This year for 2 weeks. The view is breath taking. We enjoy the pool and the close location of the condo to the deck. All the comforts of home. Love walking into town everyday. We have already booked for next year.

A GREAT WEEKEND GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
A friend and I were so excited when we discovered the convenient location for our weekend get away, but then we opened the door to where we were staying and we couldn't believe it. We were so glad that we opted to check into a rental by owner, rather than a hotel. The condo was very secure, clean, very homey and quiet. We really enjoyed being able to walk along the beach, down to the piers, and to shopping and restaurants downtown. The Farmers' Market was great, Clementine's restaurant was really good and an afternoon at Captain Louie's dock watching the boats go by on a beautiful afternoon was really relaxing. The people in town were really friendly and it's just a short drive to Saugatuk for more shopping. I also heard there are nice golf courses nearb that I'm sure my husband would love. I would highly recommend this location and working with the owner was very comfortable, it was a great first experience of vacation lodging by renting from owner. We really look forward to going again some day.

Owner's Response: Wow Laura, thanks so much for the great review!! Besides the nice Golf course you mentioned your husband would like, also the Kalhaven trail by the Black River is a nice biking or walking attraction in the area!! Hope to see you again to make our home your home!!

A PERFECT SPRING WEEKEND AWAY FROM EVERYDAY LIFE

  • 4 of 5
We highly recommend this condo... perfect romantic private weekend for two!

Very cozy, very clean, very comfortable. The location is absolutely perfect!! Right on edge of the sunset hitting the sand! 10minute or so walk to the quaint downtown area. (Or a very quick drive if you intend on eating in town and there is so much good food option, you'll be too full to walk back.)

Owner's Response: Dear Mary, wow I couldn't agree with you more!! Don't forget about my two BR unit that also has a great view of the dunes in the park next door and the Northern Coastline!!

That's what so much fun in South Haven, go out for a great meal and then the next day walk off all of the calories.

GREAT CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
Great condo! Nicely decorated and well furnished. Its right on the lake and offers a great view. Close to several wineries and to other towns such as Saugatuck. Regarding restaurants, I recommend Tello Italian Bisto and Clementines in South Haven and The Butler in Saugatuck. We also enjoyed a movie at the Michigan Theater and ice cream at Shermans is a must do. We enjoyed our stay! I would highly recommend it to others.

GREAT GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Very NICE!! The property was as described and pictures were an accurate reflection of the condo. Very clean, nicely decorated and everything worked (that's worth mentioning as I've stayed places where appliances didn't work). Everything was there that I needed for cooking dinner. Bed is very comfortable but the couch is AMAZINGLY comfortable plus the view can't be beat. This was a weekend for me to unwind so I spent a lot of time gazing out the window at the pounding waves and listening to the wind howl - very relaxing. The beach is right out the back door for a long walk on the beach - it was very windy so I also walked down the street and enjoyed looking at the various beach houses. Really nice place, very secure for a girl by herself but also great for a romantic weekend. Thank you very much to the owner for sharing this lovely home with me.

Owner's Response: Dear Rozanne, thank you for your review!! We are SO glad that you appreciated LAKE MICHIGAN in the offseason. As a kid growing up in South Haven, we had the beach to ourselves and were able to hear the wind/waves a far way from the beach. My condos do offer you the opportunity to recharge your batteries!! Marij loves to cook so she insists we have everything she needs when we come.

Sincerely,
Harold & Marij

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!
