We loved staying here. It is beautifully decorated, clean, and in a perfect location. We had no problem booking with John and Paula. We hope to stay there again.
South Haven Lofts
John was a great Host. He met us at the Lofts on the day of checkin. Walked around with us explaining how everything worked. The condo is a short walk to downtown South Haven and about four blocks from Lake Michigan. The condo was clean and very well kept. Had a great time and would highly recommend staying at the School.
We were SO happy with this condo. The pictures do not do justice to just how nice it is. We felt like we were staying in something we had seen on HGTV. Well maintained, lovely decor, comfortable beds, great location. Everything was more than we expected. You didn't feel like you were in a rental you felt like you were at a friend's home. John was so helpful at check in making sure we had everything we needed and multiple phone numbers to reach them if we didn't. I would certainly recommend this to anyone and hope to stay there again in the future ourselves.
Fun family weekend!
Our family enjoyed our long weekend at the Central Lofts. Plenty of room for all 5 of us. The location was great- close to the Farmer's Market and downtown with a short drive to the beaches. Thanks, John!
Close to Everything!
Nice clean, comfortable, and roomy condo that is close to everything! We enjoyed the pool and movie theater. Great place to stay in one of the best Michigan beach towns.
Thank you for the nice review. My wife and I are glad you and your family enjoyed your stay!
A Long Holiday Weekend
For those who are new to the South Haven area, accommodations during a holiday weekend are limited. You essentially have to make your reservations about 6-10 months ahead of time. That’s when I stumbled on this gem. Obviously, it’s gorgeous and the location was perfect. Without skipping a beat, I immediately booked our Fourth of July weekend trip.
Everything about this condo lived up to its expectations. The pictures were accurate, and the condo was less than a 10 minute walk to downtown and less than 20 to the beach. In the days leading up to our trip, John was very responsive and quick to answer all of my questions. For future reference, you’ll have two copies of the keys, and there’s plenty of parking available. Even on a holiday weekend, my friends didn’t have any issues finding a parking spot.
John and Paula have done an exceptional job decorating the bedrooms and living areas to make it feel like home. The kitchen came equipped with basic cooking supplies, and they even had a slow cooker. Despite having 6 people in our party, none of us ever experienced any issues with the wifi.
Although we didn’t have a private outdoor space, the communal area contained a 5ft pool, hot tub, and 3 gas grills. It was perfect for a couple lunchtime BBQs. If you’re into farmers markets, there’s a massive one just up the road from this former high-school. My friends were awestruck with the uniqueness of the complex. It’s been years since any of us have stepped inside a school. Contractors can do amazing things with repurposed buildings, and it’s a trend you’ll notice throughout South Haven. Most of the tenants are permanent residents and AirBnb/VRBO customers. If you’ve noticed other “similar looking” listings, there’s a chance they’re in the same complex.
My boyfriend and I visit South Haven about 2-3 times a year. We were so excited to introduce the city to our friends. They loved every minute of our trip. Between the condo and nearby attractions, they were never bored or wanting more. I’m hoping this is a start of an annual tradition for us.
