About Barb Badley

I live just outside of the town of South Haven . I grew up on the East side of Michigan,moved to South Haven in 1980 because of

my husbands job. I am a dental hygienist doing fill in only at this

time of my life. We have 5 grandchildren. It has been a dream of mine for years to offer my home to travelers so they can enjoy our lovely town.

Barb Badley purchased this apartment in 1984

Why Barb Badley chose Southwest Michigan

We love South Haven so much, there is a real peace here.The

lake is so beautiful that we wanted to be able to enjoy its amenities especially the sunsets.I love this house and am so excited to be

ab;le to renovate it so others can enjoy the area also.

What makes this apartment unique

The fact that one does not need a car is why our home is so exciting. The lake can be seen from the

front yard. There is always a breeze off the lake that feels so good.

The sunsets are so beautiful!

Lovely place near Lake Michigan and walkable to downtown

  • 4 of 5

We spend a week (two adults) at this lovely place. It is decorated so nicely, and the kitchen is a dream---has everything you need to cook as much as you want. Barb is great to work with--available if you need anything. She welcomed us with yummy muffins and a very nice bottle of wine. This place is two short blocks from the beach and in a quiet, well maintained area. You can also walk to downtown South Haven. The screened in back porch and the nicely landscaped backyard with a grill, picnic table and great chairs for napping completed the wonderfully decked out home. We would definitely return.

Great location and nice accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 recently stayed here - the location was fantastic for 3 young children - easy access to both the beach and downtown. The house has been well cared for and recently updated. We would highly recommended staying here and the blueberry muffins that Barb left for us were amazing!

Terrific South Haven rental in a beautiful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to South Haven with our two children for five years. We know the area well, and this was an amazing location. Beautiful neighborhood in which the beach, riverwalk, AND downtown are all less than a ten minute walk, yet the neighborhood was peaceful and quiet. We loved it--we barely used our car!

Barb's home was very inviting. Wonderfully updated kitchen and bathrooms. The kitchen had everything we needed to grill and picnic in the manicured backyard. There is a screened-in porch to relax in after walking home from watching the sunset on the beach, AND an outdoor deck for enjoying morning coffee. We loved it!

My wife and I highly recommend Sunset Manor and look forward to returning ourselves!

A vacation retreat beyond our wildest dreams!

  • 5 of 5

We met our daughters at Sunset Manor to celebrate Memorial Day. Ms. Barb's rental home was beautiful, cozy, and spotless. Muffins and a bottle of Leelanau Peninsula wine awaited us. She even arranged for the weather to be perfect. From the beds to the baths, everything was top of the line. We enjoyed walking to the beach and walking into town for breakfast(The Golden Brown Bakery) and dinner(Clementine's & Venezia Pizza). We played cards in the screened in porch; we grilled on the new backyard grill. When we had a question, we called Barb and she came right over. I am looking for an excuse to return SOON.

I rented this property the weekend of Mother's Day for a girls weekend with my mom. This is the second time I have stayed here. My first stay was in the upstairs unit that was great and this time was the downstairs unit. This property is totally renovated, updated and beautiful. Barb was very helpful and very prompt on getting back with me on any questions I had. Great location! Walking distance to town and beach. It was a very relaxing vacation and I hope to stay there again one day. As a side note the muffins she left for us were amazing!!!!
