About this listing
This vacation rental l is for three bedrooms two baths on the upper level. The lower level has a separate entry and is occupied by myself.
We are located in South Haven/Saugatuck. Five minutes to the Glenn beach. Pier Cove is very close as is Waikena Nature Preserve. Grill, decks, grill, fire-pit, piano, games and Dish television and a DVD player. A nice LP player with a good collection of LPs. Also, we have a nice old piano that many of the guests enjoy playing.
This is a comfortable modern home built in 1998. It is bright and has lots of natural light. I rent out the upstairs and I live in the downstairs of this beautiful home. If you wish to have the entire grounds to yourself, I have another listing for that but it is more expensive. Both sections of the home have private entries and I respect your privacy.
There is an old piano that many guests enjoy playing and your welcome to use it.
You will have access to the entire upstairs which includes kitchen, family and dining room. There is also a fire pit and a grill. The home has a separately keyed apartment on the lower level and chalet in the rear which I use as an office and sometimes sleep out there depending on the weather or circumstance.
Interaction with guests
I enjoy interacting with guests and will accept invitations if this is something you are interested in. I'm very conversant on a variety of subjects and have had some interesting conversations with guests in the past. If you wish to be alone, that's okay to and probably the norm with this rental. I can also provide gourmet French Press coffee and donuts in the morning if you like.
Nice location between South Haven and Saugatuck. Great access to beaches and areas of local interest.
