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 South Haven

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'!

Michiana #3 was a great space for 2.

  • 4 of 5

We got off to a bit of a rough start with some miscommunication over access codes and correct unit number, but beyond that the place was really nice. You might notice a bit of noise from other units, but it was fairly minimal. #3 is very well appointed; a great space and very walk-able to town.

Great Accomodations at a Great Price

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Unit #3 of this property for a weekend getaway. The place is immaculate, nicely decorated, and everything works the way that it should. WiFi internet worked great, and importantly, this property is within easy walking distance (~10 mins) of both the downtown South Haven area and the Lake Michigan Beachfront.

The property owner was very responsive to all texts with requests for information.

We would stay here again without any hesitation!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

It can be difficult to find accommodations near the beach and downtown for just two people. This place was PERFECT. It's close to everything and just the right size for a couple. Very clean and modern. Michael was really easy to work with and always responded quickly.

Wonderful place in South Haven

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Michiana #3. You can tell the apartment has been taken care of well and the location is just perfect. Located about halfway between downtown and the beach, it is a short 10 minute walk to each.

Very nicely furnished and updated. Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, clean and well furnished. The deck outside was well laid out providing privacy for all the guests at the house. Proximity to the center of town is outstanding. We felt like we were in the heart of it all but on a quiet street.

We have been here twice and plan to come back soon

Clean, pleasant, convenient

  • 5 of 5

This little apartment was perfect for my needs. I was working in the area and found this place. Michael was a great host, very attentive and responsive to email or text. The place was very clean and bright! IThe kitchen was well stocked for cooking. The sleeping accommodations were comfortable and linens clean. Michael knew I was working long hours and assured me the other apartments would not be rented to loud, partying people. He was good at his word. The location is quiet and within walking distance to the lake and downtown South Haven. If I return to the area would surely look this place up first! Thank you, Michael!

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!
