2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
South Haven, Van Buren County, Michigan
The 'Sandbox ' will enable you to enjoy an area that has been saved for future generations. Sit on your deck in the privacy of your own dune and watch the children play in your front yard. No worry about automobile traffic at the Sandbox. Road deadends at the dune where the home is located. Only four homes on this private road. The dune is active and is always recreating a new dunescape. Your neighbors are the shifting, whispering sands.
