Overview

Southwest Michigan Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Queen Bedrooms, 1 Full Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Michiana Apartment #2 is available WEEKLY ONLY in June, July and August. The summer rental schedule is from Sunday after 3:00PM through the following Sunday before 10:00AM.

Michiana #2 is an affordable two bedroom, one bath ground level apartment ideally located on the northeast corner of Michigan Avenue and Indiana Avenue in downtown South Haven, Michigan.

The Michiana's original structure was built 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 #2 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 #2 has 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 an outdoor deck directly adjacent to the apartment with southwestern exposure which gets nice afternoon sun. There is also a natural gas Weber grill on the deck making so convenient to grill dinner outside. 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!

SPECIAL NOTE: This apartment is located in the same building as our other listings which is ideal for additional friends and family!!!

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 Southwest Michigan

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!

SPECIAL NOTE: This apartment is located in the same building as our other listing: vrbo 440330 which is right next door! This adds one additional bedroom and one additional bath. A great set up for additional friends and family!!!

Girlfriend Weekend - October

  • 5 of 5

I have no control over the weather so despite the rain and cold weather, our unit was warm and comfy. The location was really great - within walking distance to town when the weather is nicer :) It's a perfect getaway place for a small family or a couple of adults. There is an outdoor grill and table so I imagine it's quite nice in the summer. The town of South Have is a very distant cousin to Saugatuck with fewer shopping and dining choices. Mike B. (the owner) was really helpful and was very accommodating to our needs. The sheets and linens were all well maintained and the unit was really quiet. The unit is on the ground floor so it's four steps up to get to the deck and the decking all appears to be recently constructed and sturdy.

Wow, what a great place!!! Park your car and walk everywhere!

  • 5 of 5

1st time visiting South Haven and we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Michiana #2 had all the amenities we needed and the place was very clean and up to date. Was able to use the outdoor gas grill to cook some steaks we brought and the kitchen was stocked with all the utensils, plates and cook ware we needed. Beds were comfortable with all linens and had WIFI and cable. We seriously booked this place 12 hours in advance and the owner (Michael) was great working with us on such short notice. The best was getting a bite to eat and than taking a short walk to the beach to watch the sunset. Such a relaxing trip for our family, so glad I found this place on VRBO (1st time user as well). We will definitely be back to South Haven as we loved the small town vibe, excellent restaurants and shops.

Owner's Response: These guests literally called the night before to see if they could reserve for the weekend. Two young parents with a new baby looking to escape the daily grind. We accommodated their request and they drove up from Indianapolis Friday morning for a fun weekend on the beach in South Haven. What are your plans for this weekend? Why not get out and explore this big beautiful world? Why not spend the weekend with family and friends on the beach in South Haven? Why not spend the weekend in Pure Michigan! Please take a minute to review our almost always current online availability calendar. If your desired dates are not available, send an email anyway. We may be able to accommodate you at one of our other apartments at the Michiana or one of our other properties. We look forward to hearing from you and hope we can accommodate you in South Haven at the Michiana! Sincerely, Michael Biedermann

Perfect for a family of three or four!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased to find that the Michana #2 apartment WAS as conveniently located as has been advertised. Literally a three block walk from both the beach and the downtown area, perfect for us. The unit itself was comfortable and clean and offered all the conveniences of home (including a stocked kitchen, laundry and cable). We really used the indoor space a lot, due to a week of bad weather, and we were comfortable and relaxed while there. On the few nice days, we strolled to the beach, walked downtown and cooked out on the unit's spacious back porch. We would stay in the Michiana #2 again!

Added bonus!

  • 5 of 5

My family traveled to South Haven for the ice breaker festival and stayed in this 2 bedroom apartment. The size was perfect for the 4 of us! The property is very well maintained and we were even lucky enough to have off street parking. The apartment was very clean and updated! It had all the amenities and more! Stocked well with linens for the bedroom and bathroom and plenty of kitchen necessities. It was awesome being able to cook our own meals at home. The location is within walking distance to the downtown area and beach. We were in SoHa when a huge winter storm came through and dropped 13 inches of snow. Michael was nice enough to extend our stay a night, due to safety and travel concerns. Thank you, Michael, for your hospitality and accommodations!
