Overview

About the property

2 Bdrm/1 Bath Ideally Located Between Downtown And South Beach

THE MICHIANA APARTMENT #4.

303 Michigan Avenue, South Haven, Michigan 49090

The Michiana was originally built was in the late 1800s as a large single family home. Years ago it was converted into two one bedroom and two two bedroom apartments. Apartment #4 has two spacious bedrooms with one queen bed in each bedroom. Each bedroom also has a closet, a dresser and a chair. The living room has comfortable seating as well as a table and chairs for dining or a game of cards. Apartment #4 has recently had both mechanical and cosmetic updates while still retaining some of the original historic details and finishes. The apartment has a very functional floor plan (see pictures) that can comfortably accommodate a family of four or two adult couples.

There is a sun soaked outdoor deck directly adjacent to the apartment with western exposure which gets nice afternoon sun. There is also a natural gas Weber grill off the deck. Directly next to the deck is the off street parking area so you do not have to carry your luggage or your groceries too far when loading and unloading.

It sounds like such a cliche', but the location is truly ideal. The Michiana is what we like to call 'Close, but not too close!'. By this we mean that it is an easy walk home from the restaurants and night life on Phoenix Street, yet far enough away that you can still sleep peacefully at night. The walk to South Beach is only three blocks west straight down Michigan Avenue. This is the best of small town Americana! Have your morning coffee and sweet roll on a bench on Main Street, or in this case Phoenix Street, and watch people stroll by. Then head back home to change into your swim suit and walk down to the beach for a day of fun in the sun. We feel the Michiana is centrally located between downtown South Haven and the beautiful South Beach.

We hope you agree and can come to South Haven and stay at the Michiana. Remember...

Location. Location. Location.

We will see you at the beach!

About Michael Biedermann

We live in the north suburbs of Chicago however we feel South Haven is our home away from home. We can not say enough great things about the community and the people of South Haven. We both have very demanding schedules and spending time together in South Haven allows us to focus on each other and our four children.

Michael Biedermann purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Michael Biedermann chose South Haven

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!

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!

A great set up for additional family or your best friends but you still have your own private space!!!

Clean, nice little deck.

  • 4 of 5

Could use some updating, and stairs going up need a motion light or porch light. Very dark at night. One of the bedrooms smells like water damage, I have a reaction anytime I walk into an area like that, so we had to sleep in the smaller bedroom.

I had wanted to add an additional nights stay onto our already existing reservation and for some reason I couldn't get that to happen after about 4 emails, asking the same thing, so I gave up and booked a hotel for the additional night. The owner said he'd book that night, once he received the amount that included another cleaning fee and all the other fees when you do be vrbo...so we Would've had to pay it twice!! That doesn't make sense to me...that's pretty bad.

Now I'll tell you about the good: clean, cute little deck, enough kitchen ware, comfortable. Owner wanted to make sure we got in ok via text. I asked if we could have a little later check out due to that being our wedding night, and the owner graciously agreed. We appreciated it.

I never write reviews, but I hope that mine helps to do some fine tuning.

Car: recommended

The location is truly ideal and in the center of where you want to be! Only a short three block walk to all of the quaint shops and restaurants located in downtown South Haven as well as a short three block walk to the South Beach. The location is also very residential and quiet so you do not have to listen to the late night crowd howl at the moon when they stumble out of the local watering holes... which is something I never did when I was there age. Smile now please!

A great set up for additional family or your best friends but you still have your own private space!!!
