About Michael Biedermann

We love South Haven!!! We live in Glenview, Illinois but consider South Haven our home away from home. When we are there we feel more relaxed. It is easier for us to focus on and enjoy spending quality time with each other and our children. We can feel anxiety, stress and blood pressure levels go down when we are there. We hope after a few days in South Haven at the Michiana, you will feel the same way.

Michael Biedermann purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Michael Biedermann chose Southwest Michigan

Location! Location! Location! We enjoy the location of the Michiana as it is so easy to walk to the South Beach Public Park as well as the less than five minute walk to all of the great shops and restaurants in downtown South Haven. Once the groceries are purchased, there is no need for your car again.

What makes this apartment unique

The Michiana was originally built in the late 1800s as a large single family home. It was then converted into four individual apartments consisting of two, two bedroom apartments and two, one bedroom apartments. Since we purchased the property in 2004, we have made a significant investment of both time and resources to update the building and individual apartments. We feel we have retained the original architectural character while providing most of today's modern conveniences. While the location is incredible, we also love the charm of the place itself. It says 'Home'!

Fun in South Haven

  • 5 of 5

Great location, short walk to dining and beach. The apartment was very nice, lots of light, and comfortable with everything we needed. We enjoyed biking on a nearby trail, eating at local restaurants, visiting the beach and river, and relaxing on the deck outside the apartment.

Perfect for 2!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed at Michigan #3 for four nights and we loved it. It was super clean, cute, and perfect for 2. It is on a quiet street but walking distance to the Main Street inSouth Haven, the harbour, and Lake Michigan. We even found a put-in for our kayak close by! We absolutely recommend the apartment and will be back!

Your welcome to a great stay with all you need to keep your off time relaxing, and a location that lets you be steps away from the beach, the river walk and downtown South Haven. We could see all these units (4) have comfortable deck space and grills and ovens that make your decision to visit local eateries a choice, not a must. Our visit for mid September was very warm, hvac was outstanding. This property is clean, well maintained and very updated. The neighborhood is pretty and relaxing.

We enjoyed our stay and will definitely try next year for a longer stay in a different unit at the same place; with more family who saw our posts, we will need a larger space, why go anywhere else! Owner is very attentive and any questions, you get a quick response.

Loved our visit and this property, will be back again.

Charming, comfy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Michiana - the place was totally adorable and perfect for a romantic getaway for two. Beautifully designed and with everything we needed to cook our own meals, hang out in comfort, and it's just a block from the main street where there was tons of fun shopping and great places to eat. We love South Haven and plan to come back soon!

Enjoyed our visit to South Haven

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I were in South Haven for a family reunion. This apartment was great. It was not only within walking distance of town and the beach, but was also conveniently located to the houses rented by other family members. Michael was very quick to respond to the questions that came up when we first arrived. The kitchen was equipped with the necessary tools for making simple meals. South Haven is a nice little town, and we really enjoyed our stay.

Clean, Relaxing Apartment in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Michiana 3. Michael was very gracious in answering our questions before our stay. There were beautiful fresh flowers on the counter upon arrival which was such a lovely touch. This apartment is in a prime location in town. It’s only a few blocks walk to the beach, and a few blocks walk into town. There are so many wonderful and fun things to do in South Haven; we had a fabulous trip! The apartment was very clean and the cooking materials that were provided were perfect for a week’s stay. The bed was comfortable and it was easy to control the temperature of the apartment. We loved eating meals outside on the patio and grilling. The bedroom has a large closet which was perfect for hanging our clothes and storing our belongings. The cable selection was very comprehensive and we were glad to have the relaxing love seat to cuddle on after sunset each evening. The washer and dryer in the basement was so convenient. It was fantastic to be able to take home clean clothes at the end of the trip. We used the outdoor shower after being at the beach. I was so impressed with how clean it was; it was immaculate! I was also so glad that it had nice hot water. Check in and checkout was a breeze. Overall, the apartment is beautiful with the perfect beachy vibe and is in a great location.

Owner's Response: We truly appreciate when our guests take the time to write a review of the accommodations at the Michiana Apartment #3. We realize that there are many options to choose from when selecting accommodations in South Haven. We try our best to constantly update and improve on the accommodations. We also try to provide clean accommodations for our guests. This is admittedly not always easy however we do try very hard and are happy to hear that the apartment was clean upon arrival. We also try to provide unique conveniences such as free onsite laundry as well as a beach shower with hot and cold water. We also have a Weber grill right outside the back door on the private deck should you decide to cook a meal during your stay. Please take a moment to review our always current online availability calendar on our listing to see if your desired dates are available. If they are not available, send us an inquiry anyway as we might be able to accommodate you in one of the other three apartments at the Michiana. We look forward to hearing from you and hope we can accommodate you as our guests in South Haven at the Michiana Apartment #3! Sincerely, Michael Biedermann

Car: recommended

The Michiana is ideally located on the Northeast corner of Michigan Avenue and Indiana Avenue. The Michiana is within a short three block walk to both South Haven's beautiful South Beach as well as all of the retail shops and restaurants in the downtown area. Once you turn off your car, you will not need to turn it on again until it is time to go home!
