About Michael Biedermann

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!

Michael Biedermann purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Michael Biedermann chose Southwest Michigan

The Michiana was originally built in the late 1800s as a large single family home. It was then converted into four apartments consisting of two, two bedroom apartments and two, one bedroom apartments. Since we purchased the property, 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'!

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.

Also... this apartment is located in the same building as our other listing: vrbo 343005 which is right next door! This adds two additional bedrooms and one additional bath. A great set up for additional friends and family. The more the merrier!!!

Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great long weekend in South Haven. I would highly recommend Michiana Apartment #1 for a couple or single wanting to "get away from it all". I needed to find a place on short notice for a family reunion in South Haven, and Michael was so accommodating and wonderful to work with. The apartment was so quiet even though there are four units. I love how the apartment has been modernized and is decorated. The location is ideal as everything you may want to do is within walking distance (beach, downtown, restaurants, etc.). I would definitely rent again.

South Haven Perfection

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed a weekend trip to South Haven at Michiana Unit #1 this past weekend. The unit is immaculately maintained and had every amenity we could have wanted for a beach weekend. The property is updated, clean, and was a please to stay in. This location provides the perfect location to enjoy walks down the channel, to the beach, and around town. My wife and I have spent many, many days in South Haven, as we lived in Kalamazoo for 10 years and it was a short drive. The in town location gave us a WHOLE new perspective and level of enjoyment of one of our favorite towns.

A Bit of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was my fourth time staying at the Michiana; first time at Michiana #1. The accommodations are always wonderful. The apartment is well-furnished and very comfortable. We used the deck for dinner each evening, walked to the sunsets each night, farmer's market on Wednesday, and beach walks daily. The location is ideal for those of us who enjoy being active as we could also ride bikes to the trail-head on the Kal-Haven trail.

The homeowner is very friendly and accessible. Should any issue arise, there would be an immediate response.

Love South Haven and love the Michiana.

Owner's Response: To have one of our guests take the time to submit a positive review is a very nice compliment. To have them return for a fourth stay is the highest compliment we can receive. It is our goal to have our guests come back to stay again and again. We want our guests to feel at home on their first visit but to feel as though the Michiana is there home away from home and come back year after year. We hope you will feel the same. Please take a moment to review our almost always current online availability calendar to see if your desired dates are available. If not, send us an email anyway. We may be able to accommodate you at one of the other apartments at the Michiana or another property we own. We look forward to hearing from you and hope you will become our repeat customer! Also, thanks for taking the time to read this review. You can stop looking for accommodations, the Michiana is the place to stay! Sincerely, Michael Biedermann

Smartly Designed, Immaculately Clean Apartment for relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for a get-away for our anniversary. The apartment is immaculately clean, with a smart, crisp, modern redesign of older home. Every square inch is thoughtfully put to its best potential.

The unit is in an excellent location on a quaint street within walking distance to coffee shops, restaurants, and of course, the lake and beach.

The owner, Michael, was very accommodating, making sure we arrived safely and had everything we needed, giving us feedback with any questions we had.

We would recommend Michiana #1 to anyone looking for a charming, appealing and delightful place to stay in South Haven.

Cute Beach apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had an enjoyable stay. The apartment was very clean and tidy... And because of that we felt very comfortable. It was a short walk to the beach. The water was clear. Everything we needed was provided for us. Thank you for everything.

Perfect spot to relax

  • 5 of 5

We came up for our 35th anniversary. The apartment is located in the perfect spot, close to downtown and close to the beach. Both are in walking distance so we were able to get pLenny of exercise while we were there. When you walk into the apartment you just get a feeling of arriving to your destination. No need to bring anything other than food. This is a very quaint and friendly town with plenty of restaurants. The owner was so accomondating with anything we needed, he gave us a tip on a place to eat when we first arrived.

You can't go wrong with this one.

Thanks again for making this apartment available,

Hank & Maureen

Owner's Response: We accepted this reservation the morning of the guests arrival. It was an impromptu vacation to celebrate their wedding anniversary. We happened to have the dates availabile and were happy to be able accommodate them. Our listings will say that we rent weekly only between Memorial Day and Labor Day however we will accept a reservation for less than a week if possible. Most often this will need to be a last minute reservation with at least three days stay. Please take a minute to review the availability calendar on our listing to see if your desired dates are available. If not, please send an email and we might be able to accommodate you in one of our other apartments at the Michiana. Thanks for taking the time to read our reviews. We look forward to hearing from you and hope we can accommodate you in South Haven at the Michiana Apartment #1! Sincerely, Michael Biedermann
