South Haven Condo Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 6, 2 BR, 1 BA, Private parking, No stairs, Best location & view!

Welcome to one of the best places on Lake Michigan. Hawksview Condo offers a getaway where you can park your car on arrival, and never have to drive again until you leave. This lovely South Haven condo is located in the very heart of downtown, where a short walk will get you anywhere you want to be in beautiful South Haven. Gather your family and come to enjoy a week close to the beach, downtown, and the harbor. It has loads of character to ensure a perfect vacation destination!

However you chose to spend your time you will be very comfortable in our 2 bedroom, 1 full bath condo, The private parking lot is on the East side of the building with 2 parking spaces. There are no stairs in this main level unit. You can comfortably sleep 6 with the master bedroom featuring a queen-size bed, the second bedroom has a full-size bed under a full-size bunk-bed, and the large open living area has a queen-size pullout sleeper sofa. Enjoy watching the boats go by from the spacious living room’s spectacular view overlooking the vibrant and active Black River. Oh, and don't forget the picturesque sunsets...

The family will love the big waves and sandy shoreline at South Beach, so grab your beach towel and it's a brief walk from this ideal location. Maybe you would like to go fishing, or rent a kayak or bicycle. If you own a boat, jet skis or would like to rent one this is the location for you. You can be in the open waters of Lake Michigan within minutes. When not on the water, we are within walking distance to quintessential downtown shops, eateries, entertainment, and all that South Haven has to offer!

Golfers will find a multitude of courses at all levels of play. For the athlete, we are at the beginning of the historic Kal Haven trail which offers 30 plus miles for running, biking, or hiking. South Haven is home to numerous festivals throughout the year and is known for their spectacular Blueberry crop. There are many specialty shops (art, clothing, and great antiques) in town, as well as many more just a short drive away. Local Art Communities thrive during the summer season and make for a great day of shopping, antiquing and dining.

When you are ready to settle in, our place has been updated including new furniture and is designed with relaxation and romance in mind. For your comfort the following are provided: central air conditioning, ceiling fans, washer, dryer, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, fully equipped kitchen, bedroom & kitchen linens, board games, and video library. For your use, we now have a portable Coleman L.P. Grill that is stored in the utility closet.

Kitchen table seats four plus four more can sit at the bar, and the full kitchen has all modern amenities. Great open concept for dinners and gatherings, or you can watch a movie on the 46” T.V. with DVD player and Netflix via Roku. Secure WI-FI is available for your wireless needs.

The building was previously the home of the South Haven Tribune that was has been renovated into condos. This quiet ‘Hawks View’ condo is a perfect alternative to staying in a hotel, and is available for WEEKLY rental only during the summer months between Memorial Day through Labor Day. The rental schedule is from Saturday at 3:00 PM through the following Saturday before 11:00 AM. The weekly rate applies even if you are unable to stay the full week. The weekly rental rate includes the cleaning fee and taxes, whereas other rentals charge over $100 for cleaning and 6% use tax. A payment of fifty percent (50%) of the weekly rental rate will be required to secure your reservation. The remaining half of the weekly rate must be received 30 days prior to the reserved arrival date, as well as a refundable security deposit of $200.

This is not just a summertime destination! Winter brings opportunities for snowmobiling, skiing, hiking, or just hiding out with good company and a bottle of wine from one of the local vineyards and wineries. It is only a 20 minute drive from South Haven to Saugatuck, 30 minutes to Holland, or 45 minutes to Kalamazoo. It is two plus hours to Chicago and three hours to Detroit.

This historical town that was founded in 1833 has a nostalgic light house guiding pleasure boats to the multiple marinas scattered along the Black River which runs through this idyllic town. Be sure to visit the South Haven Farm Market, Waterfront Skate Park, Kids Corner Park, Michigan Maritime Museum, South Haven Municipal Marina, South Haven Yacht Club, River Noire Yacht Club, and South Haven Visitors Bureau.

About Janis Greiffendorf

We live in South Haven again after living in Saginaw, MI for 21 years. We used to travel to visit both of our families that are located in the South Haven area. We have fond memories of the many festivals, eateries, and attractions. Janis owned a Hair Salon in downtown South Haven where Maria's Restaurant is now. We hope you enjoy the spectacular view, and create your own memories while renting a week or two in Hawksview.

Janis Greiffendorf purchased this condo in 2013

Why Janis Greiffendorf chose Southwest Michigan

We have family history that is uniquely tied to the South Haven area and the local Blueberry Industry. Through the years we have made South Haven a vacation destination, often renting condos or choosing local accommodations. We had been looking for several years to purchase a property in South Haven. We had looked at so many houses and condos that we had almost given up. We had a very good feeling the minute we walked into this condo.

What makes this condo unique

Location, Location, Location. 'Hawksview' provides a spectacular view of the Black River and Marina from the spacious living room. The feature of being on the main level with no stairs is hard to find in South Haven. You can park the car and walk to everything is a great benefit of this location.

Great location and great view

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year in a row to stay at the condo, and as others have stated, the location and view are awesome. Some nice new additions: new flooring is nice, and the bed in one room seemed updated also.

So what there is no cable or local TV(you are stuck with Netflix and other stuff.) Great food at Taste nearby and Brix for pizza. Su Casa is good for Mexican. And, designated parking is a great plus. Will stay again for sure!

This condo is the BEST! You can walk anywhere in town, the walk to the beach is 5-10 minutes and the view of all the boats going down the river is awesome from the big window in the living room. It is very clean and has all the amenities you need. We have rented 2 years in a row and can't wait to come again next year! Thanks so much for sharing your condo!!

Owners are very nice and helpful.

Excellent location. Close to shops, restaurants beach and parks.

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as featured on the website. The condo was very clean and so comfortable. The full size bunk beds were perfect for my adult kids. The kitchen had everything I needed to cook and to store leftovers. It is furnished nicely but had a homey feel. Great place for families with kids of all ages as well as for adults. I would definitely recommend this unit to anyone that is looking for a relaxing get away . The condo is priced reasonably. I highly recommend this spot to all that want a downtown feel with a quiet location.

The owners did provide excellent customer service.

A gem in the heart of South Haven!

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at this great condo! First, the location is perfect..especially if you have young children and want to be near the shops, restaurants, harbor, and South Beach! We could walk everywhere and got to try many of the nice restaurants nearby. Would highly recommend Su Casa just around the corner for Mexican! The view from the main front window was spectacular. Even though our son went to bed early, we were still able to watch the boats go by and watch the sunset over the harbor from the couch. Having Netflix was a perk to catch up on some shows.

The condo was spacious, well-equipped and super clean with updated appliances in the kitchen. It was nice to have the pots/dishes needed for whatever we decided to cook. The beds were comfortable and they provided plenty of extra linens. We appreciated the welcome binder, which gave us info for parking, using Roku, and check out procedures. Everything was a breeze! We would highly recommend staying at this wonderful condo and hope to visit again soon! Thanks!
