About Gail Bindi

This home is owned by the Bindi family from Michigan. We purchased this home because of the location, and the ability to house multiple family members across generations. We like to cook big family meals, take walks on the beach, sit on the front porch with a glass of wine or cup of coffee, and enjoy all the great things South Haven has to offer.

Gail Bindi purchased this house in 1997

Why Gail Bindi chose Southwest Michigan

We purchased this lovely home to enjoy annual get-togethers with family members gathering from Michigan, NY and California. The home is great for cooking and comfortably sleeping a large crowd, and it is situated in an ideal location! South Haven has something for people of all ages, from toddlers to teens to empty nesters... playgrounds, gorgeous white sandy beach, boat-watching, shopping and dining... and it is all just steps away.

What makes this house unique

Location- Location- Location! You can park your car and leave it for the week. You can walk everywhere- beach/town/shopping. The living and dining rooms are large and great for a crowd. Also you can escape the sun and relax on the covered front porch with a good book or glass of wine ...and soak-in the charming neighborhood.

This house was perfect for our visit to South Haven!

  • 5 of 5

If you want a perfect location for your South Haven vacation, this house is for you!

It is 3-4 blocks from the South Beach and 3-4 blocks from the shops and restaurants in town. The neighborhood is very nice.

While the house maybe 100 years old, the owners ongoing refurbishing makes it feel much more modern. The kitchen, dining room, living room, bedrooms and baths are in very good condition. The front porch is very relaxing and well- appointed.

If you are an "old timer", there is a very nice American Legion just across the street.

Gail Bindi is excellent to work with, very responsive and helpful.

I hope this house is available for our next trip to South Haven.

Amazing Location

  • 4 of 5

There was so much space and the location could not have asked for a better location. We were able to walk to downtown, the park and the beach. We were able to ride our bikes and feel safe. Each room was big enough that you felt you had room and not on top of one another. House is dated, but very usable and met our needs. Gail was amazing to work with, answered by questions in a timely manner and never made me feel like a bother. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location to the beach and downtown. We enjoyed relaxing on the porch with our morning coffee .

  • 4 of 5

We shared with the owner several items that needed attention to maintenance and comfort ;

However, we think that with several upgrades and attention to making the property more livable and comfortable, we would rate it five stars. Attention to cleanliness throughout the house is high on the list for suggestions .

Nevertheless we had a wonderful time on the property

Lake Michigan- South Beach
Car: recommended

South Haven is a beautiful beach town on the shores of Lake Michigan. Enjoy long walks on sugar-white sandy beach just 2 blocks from the cottage, and stroll out on the pier to see the lighthouse and the beautiful sunsets. The marina and Black River are one block away from the house and you can watch the boats go in & out or sit and listen to an outdoor concert. Short walk to downtown restaurants, bars, boutiques, movie theater, ice cream, salon/spa, farmer's market, Kid's Corner... and short drive to sand dunes, U-pick farms, wineries, golfing. South Haven has it all!
