Overview

About the property

4 BR, 3 full baths, unbeatable location close to town and beach.

The Erie Street Beach house is available weekly in June, July, and August. The house is also available for shorter stays during the off-season the remainder of the year.

The house is a beautiful 100-year-old Victorian home just blocks from South Haven's south beach, and all of the great shops and restaurants in downtown South Haven. We invite you to experience the tranquility and beauty in this recently renovated home. You'll find everything you need in the new expanded kitchen, large enough to accommodate multiple chefs. The kitchen has a large wall blackboard for the artist in your group, and pass-through windows to both the outdoor BBQ and dining room. The dining room table seats +14. The big sunny living room has plenty of seating and a large flat-screen TV.

The house is well-suited for multi-generational families. The first-floor bedroom has a queen bed and a new ensuite, semi-private bathroom. Also located on the first floor is a small hall bedroom with a twin bed -- close the door on one side, the drapes at the other, and you're ready for bed!

Upstairs, the purple and orange bedrooms each have a queen bed. The purple bedroom has a newly redone ensuite, semi-private bathroom. Flexible sleeping arrangements are provided in “the dorm," with two bunk beds (one bunk is a triple) and a queen bed. There is a new large, full bathroom on the second floor with a big shower and double sinks to easily accommodate a large family. We also offer a pack-and-play, stair gate, highchair, and more.

Enjoy our beautifully landscaped outdoors. The house is set on a double lot, so the yard is exceptionally large for South Beach. We offer a badminton/volleyball set, fire pit, hammock, and basketball area. The front porch is seasonally screened or closed in. Off the dining room is a large patio/deck with BBQ and dining area. The patio table has a tiltable umbrella for shade protection during the day; two comfortable benches and side chairs accommodate 12 people. We also have a small kiddie table and bench set.

An extra treat in this house is the artwork -- the home belongs to a retired fine art dealer. There is a wide variety of interesting and beautiful works of art, most of which is available for sale.

During High Season the property is only rented weekly. However, there are a few weeks each summer which are available MONDAY - FRIDAY, which is a great way to avoid the weekend crowds!

THIS HOUSE CAN BE RENTED AS PART OF A FAMILY COMPOUND FOR TWO WEEKS DURING THE HIGH SEASON -- See http://www.vrbo.com/800039

Why Elaine Soble chose South Haven

We have just completed an almost total renovation inside and out -- updating and improving the home while retaining its charm. The huge yard is beautifully landscaped and offers plenty of room. It was designed to be a real family home for our family and our guests..

This was the perfect house for our girl's wine weekend! Fully stocked, adorable, PERFECT location!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect location for our girl's wine weekend! Everyone was comfortable, there was a ton of communal space, the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to make meals and both downtown and the lake were within walking distance. We'll be back again!

Very nice family time!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed and really enjoyed the house for a small family reunion. The house is literally about a block from in town and several from South beach. Very clean and spacious - perfect for our families. We really enjoyed the outdoor area as we had about five kids 10 and up! The front porch was also perfect for morning coffee or a later glass of wine. All in all Elaine and her husband were wonderful! Thanks so much for the enjoyable stay! Would stay again!

Perfect for our large family, inside and outside! Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

The house was large and recently renovated. There was plenty of room for our children and grandchildren. The kitchen was large and beautiful, and the big dining room had space for everyone. Having three full bathrooms was a bonus that we appreciated. We loved the outside space for playing and gathering too. It was perfect for us! The owner, Elaine, was great to work with and very nice. Five stars!

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

House is in a prefect location for any in town activities; loved the farmers market, beach and restaurants. There were 16 of us; another bath room would have great or turn the the outside rinse off into a shower stall would be awesome. The only thing that was a bummer was the trash pick-up; the recycling should be picked up the same week as the trash, it doesn't work.

Owner's Response: I agree -- the recycling should be picked up the same week as the trash, but that is not in my control!

I was really impressed with this property for a family get away. Great location. Near the beach but not crowded. Close to restaurants yet quiet. Beautiful house totally updated yet cozy. A perfect place for a family get away....

Awesome house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home, right in the heart of South Haven. It is within walking distance to the town, beach, parks, and riverfront. The house has recently been renovated, and has a gorgeous new kitchen and three new bathrooms. There is also a great screened in porch and a back deck with a large grill. We had a big family gathering at the house, including children and seniors, and everyone had a fantastic time.
