South Haven House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Located 1.5 blocks from Lake Michigan South Beach, lighthouse, bluff sunsets+Kids Corner. Downtown shops are a short walk away along tree lined streets with views of the Lake peaking around charming City Cottages. Great City location easy access to the festivals,fireworks on the bluff, or casual stroll to your favorite restaurant.

The Seagull is a newer home,one level living, very open floor plan and low threshold shower in the master suite.

Easy access to the sights and sounds of South Haven without having to drive a car. There is a bright open cabana room w/nautical accents (if you are a boater you'll recognize some of the antique boat emblems on display).

Partially fenced large yard with flower garden, deck and gas grill. Kal Haven bike trail-easy access from back of the yard. Plenty room to store bikes in the garage when not in use.

Home is comfortable and offers all the amenities found in a new home. Decorated in the traditions of a true Coastal Living home. Plan some Lake Michigan fishing,go out on a charter or walk down to the pier and try your luck there. Jet skiis, are available for rent on the nearby Black River as well as Kayaks to tour the scenic, peaceful backwaters.



Plan a day exploring the nearby Dunes. Approx 3 miles to the South is the North Point Conservation area(website in place) or the Van Buren State Park, Pilgrim Haven all feature a wonderful beach, hiking trails and unspoiled dunescapes.Great area to search for a souvenir rock to take back home.

Why Maureen chose Southwest Michigan

Wonderful City location see the Great Fireworks display in your front yard. Walk to South Beach, Kids Corner, Riverwalk and the town with all it's festivals and attractions. No need for a car at The Seagull

What makes this house unique

Newer home only 13 years old. Lovingly cared for by previous owners-large spacious living areas and bedrooms. Hear the Lake and the fog horn from the lighthouse from the yards of the home.

Located on a private U shaped street with almost no traffic yet close enough to enjoy all the areas people like to frequent while visiting South Haven without the worry of where to park the car. Charm of an older home with all the new home comforts.

2nd time around just as great!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the seagull two years ago, and then again this summer for another mini family reunion. It was a great place to relax, close to beach and kids corner, perfect for different age groups, as it is a ranch. Just as nice as home. Owners great to work with. planning to stay in 2016 and give my son a yearly family tradition.

Perfect family house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 3 kids and my parents . There was more than enough room for all of us and the house is very comfortable . It is clean, charming and lacking in nothing! We loved being so close to Kids Corner and the lake. The cart, chairs and beach toys in the garage were perfect for our family. I would recommend it highly to anyone looking for a relaxing, memorable vacation!

Great house

  • 5 of 5

The Seagull is a lovely home. Immaculate, very comfortable, and nestled in a very nice neighborhood. It was a perfect distance to the beach, Kids Corner, and downtown. We had a delightful stay.

Weekend Too Short

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful long weekend at this house and it was just as advertised. Our only regret was that the stay was too short. Everything was very clean, attractive and comfortable! South Beach is close and very, very nice. Maureen was extremely helpful and easy to work with!

Great location, charming home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at the seagull for a week. What a wonderful home on a quiet street. Perfect for a family getaway! The house was clean, well appointed, and located near enough to everything that we walked to the park, the beach and downtown. It's also a short bicycle ride to the Kal-Haven Trail. The owners were very responsive to questions, and were there to welcome us on arrival. I would highly recommend this property to anyone who wishes to get away to the charming town of South Haven.
