Overview

About the property

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

This charming +100 year-old Victorian home is located in desirable South Beach. It is two blocks from downtown South Haven and four short blocks from the main beach entrance. A major renovation of the house was just completed.

The kitchen and dining room were expanded and completely redone. You'll find everything you need in the new, large kitchen, and enough room for 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 large, sunny living room has plenty of seating, a flat-screen TV and a gas fireplace.

The first-floor bedroom has a queen bed and a new ensuite bathroom (the bathroom has a second door opening to the front hallway so that it also serves as a first-floor powder room). Also located on the first floor is a tiny 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 bathroom (the bathroom has a second door opening to the hallway so that it can be shared). 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 crowd.

We are all set up for babies and toddlers with a pack and play, stair gate, highchair, and more.

The outdoor space is superlative. The house is set on a double lot, so the yard is unusually large for South Beach, and features a badminton/volleyball set, fire pit, hammock, and basketball area. It is beautifully landscaped with oak leaf hydrangeas, catmint, grasses, lilacs, wegelia, and more.

You can enjoy the outdoors in a variety of ways here. The front porch is seasonally screened or closed in. Off the dining room is a large patio/deck with BBQ, dining area, and hand shower. The patio table has a tiltable umbrella for shade protection during the day, and two super-comfortable benches; with side chairs the table can accommodate 12 people. We also have a small kiddie table with benches.

For the most part, during High Season the property is only rented weekly. However, there are a few weeks each summer which are available Monday-Friday only. MONDAY-FRIDAY RENTALS ARE DISCOUNTED- please contact Owner.

A/C and high-speed internet (complementary).

Check-in is at 4:00; check-out is at 10:00. Cancellation is allowed despite what is set in the VRBO text -- see our rental agreement.

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

Why Elaine Soble chose Southwest Michigan

We bought this lovely 100-year-old Victorian charmer for its superb location and extremely spacious yard. The house is located just two blocks to town and four short blocks to the main entrance to the South Beach. We furnished it simply and comfortably. The huge yard is beautifully landscaped and offers plenty of room for football and sunbathing. It was designed to be a real family home for both our family and our guests..

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!

Great Place in South Haven MI

  • 5 of 5

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.
