About Julia Burnett

Beach lovers at heart we were happily married six years ago on Chicago's Oak Street Beach. Searching for the perfect beach getaway lead us to a year long search for the best beach house available in South Haven.

We live in Chicago's Lincoln Park Neighborhood and stare across the lake remembering great times in South Haven.

Julia Burnett purchased this house in 2011

Why Julia Burnett chose Southwest Michigan

This location is ideal as you are a one minute walk to the beach (no stairs to climb) with white sandy beaches and to town where there are lovely shops and restaurants/bars.

What makes this house unique

Perfect location near North Beach and Stanley Johnson Park. Home has a large backyard, very unique for this prime location.

Great Place to Be if you have Rain!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Julia. We had a great time in spite of the rainy weather. With 9 of us ladies celebrating our 75th birthdays we usually find sleeping accommodations can be difficult. Not so in your home. Our 2 gals that are up quite a bit at night had their own bedrooms and the rest of us all had our own beds. The dining room table was perfect for meals and playing games. The seating in the basement for viewing tv was fantastic -many of us are Tiger baseball fans. All of the furniture is comfortable and the kitchen is very well stocked.

We also enjoyed shopping in the great shops in South Haven and the restaurants are terrific. We look forward to walking the beach on our next trip (hopefully it won't rain as much).

You are very easy to work with and that is a another big plus! Looking forward to visiting your home again in the future. Bev

Spacious South Haven Home

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 14 girls had a wonderful time in South Haven. We truly utilized every square inch of space for meals, fun, games, and lounging. The layout is perfect for large groups and allows everyone to be together at once--in a number of settings! The large dining room table, the cozy basement sitting area, the patio, and the upstairs living room were wonderful for our weekend get-away. The two bathrooms were a tight, understandably so, when we tried to get ready around the same time, and the firepit wasn't working, but due to the noise ordinance and the warm weather, it wasn't much of an issue. We cooked multiple meals at the house and were pleased to use the supplied kitchen tools and ample counter space. Julia kindly recommended we bring cups and paper plates which was a great suggestion--it definitely helped with clean up. The nearby convenience store and coffee shop next door were also hits with our group. We couldn't have been more pleased, and I recommend Julia's home to anyone looking for a comfortable, homey lake house for a group getaway. I hope to return with our group and even my big family sometime, too! Thank you Julia!!

Beach access and family time

  • 5 of 5

Great place where we had 11 adults and 7 children (10 and under) fit comfortably in this deceiving house. Close to North Beach and Woodman Beach access as well as a 10-15 minute walk to downtown or close by Stanley Johnson Park. Everyone in our family reunion loved the place and was appreciative of the beach chairs and umbrellas. Julia was great to work with and responsive!

Great Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Our children and grandchildren-- ages 6 and under-- all loved this house. The large family room, and the fenced backyard keep the children active and happy. The beach is just a few steps away, and the town( restaurants, movie,ice cream,----) is just a short walk so cars can stay parked. Also a large park with play area is down one block. Have already reserved our vacation week at 77 North Shore for next year.

Amazing House & Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing house and we couldn't have picked a better one! We had 14 ladies stay in this house for a bachelorette weekend in late May. We spent the majority of our time on the patio and beach, but if we would've encountered bad weather during the weekend, the house definitely had enough room, TV’s, games, and entertainment opportunities on the 1st and 2nd floor to keep a group of people completely occupied. The beds were very comfortable with new and clean linens, and the bathrooms were stocked with more than enough supplies needed. Although we didn’t use the washer and dryer in the basement, it was nice to know that a set was down there – especially if a group was staying for longer than two days.

The walk to the beach, downtown, and throughout the strip was absolutely perfect. The homeowners were extremely accommodating, allowing us to check in a couple hours early to unpack and stock the fridge. The kitchen has everything you would need, including utensils. It was extremely clean, beautiful, and organized. I highly recommend this house to anyone interested in an amazing vacation in South Haven. Thanks for making our weekend perfect Julia! :)

Great Lakehouse!

  • 5 of 5

Our group - 6 adults & 6 small kids - really enjoyed the house. It's definately bigger than it looks from the outside, and the layout really worked out well for us. The whole house felt clean and well-maintained. They really made great use of the space in this house (we loved having plenty of room for everyone to eat!). We had bad weather during our fall weekend visit, so we especially appreciated the huge basement space. We hope to return again next fall. Thank you!
