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!!!

Great Getaway!

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

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 day getaway at this condo. Although I was hoping for crisp fall weather and colors, we weren't expecting snow and hail which we actually had upon arrival! The condo was as described with a perfect lake view, and was very clean with all we needed. Harold was great at responding to my questions. We enjoyed walking the beach in warm coats and gloves. The colors were still beautiful, and we loved Maria's, Clementines and The Thirsty Perch.Would love to go back and enjoy the pool in warmer weather! Thanks Harold and Marij for a great surprise birthday weekend for my husband!

Owner's Response: Dear Sherry & Forest, thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review and spending your special time with us!! We were very happy to hear that you loved the condo and South Haven. We would also recommend trying Taste for some tapas. Even though it was cold, we are glad you took advantage of the beach. It is great to experience the power of Lake Michigan in the fall & winter without anyone there and to sleep with open windows allowing you to hear the waves crash upon the beach!!!

South Haven, not just a summertime destination!!

Harold & Marij

We had a wonderful time at the condo. The condo was very clean and had everything that we possibly needed. It was great to be able to walk out the door and enjoy the patio and the beach that we walked daily. We also enjoyed the wonderful sunsets, and close distance to downtown. We will definitely come back. The owners were very helpful when needed, too. Thanks so much for sharing your condo with us. Lynn and Joe
Owner's Response: Hi Lynn & Joe, we are so happy that you enjoyed your stay in our home and in South Haven!! It's amazing the great weather you can still have during the fall! We hope to see you again soon!

We truly enjoyed our time at this location. Harold was very helpful in providing all the information we needed for our stay. The condo looked wonderful in pictures and was even better in person. The location to town was ideal for walking and the proximity to the beach was hard to beat. We would love to come back when the weather is a little warmer to take better advantage of both the beach and pool. Melissa

Owner's Response: Dear Melisa, thank you so much for your review. We agree with your comments and personally we love September and October in South Haven. The crowds are gone and you can walk the beach by yourself! You can't beat Indian Summer!!!

We also enjoy relaxing & reading a book or taking bike rides to on the Kalhaven trail to see the fall colors. We hope to see you again next year!

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!
