Just got back from a weekend at Beachwalk. I have to say that this house was perfect in every way. Anything you might need was right there. Plenty of room for everyone. I cannot tell you was an awesome home this is. I would recommend it highly!

Fun fun fun cottage!!
Fun fun fun cottage!!
This house is amazing!! From the beer nuts on the bar in the theatre room, to the x box and tons of great 3d movies, This home satisfied everyone. The women spent hours on the two porch swings looking out over Lake Kai. The men bonded over ruthless ping pong games, and pool. There is a fire pit, vintage bikes, six in all. The park and pool are steps away. The beach is as beautiful as being on the east coast. The sand is soft and smooth. The dunes are soothing to the soul. This charming community has a true cottage feel, warm and inviting. Jeff was fun to work with. He is extremely helpful and has truly thought of everything in appealing to people of all ages. The kitchen is stocked with basic items, spices etc. I have rented homes that have you feeling like a visitor the entire time. This home is designed to make you feel truly at home. We came away rejuvenated and are already planning a repeat visit! Thanks Jeff for going the extra mile with all the surprise touches.

The house is a destination
The house is a destination
This house is a destination in itself with the home theater, movies, pool/game/ping pong table, large hot tub in back, and bikes. The owners have thought of everything, providing cereal, snacks, baking items, appliances, and an ice machine. We loved the screened porches and comfy beds.

Well wouldn't you know it rained and snowed almost the entire 5 days that we stayed.(spring break) BUT not to worry there was so much to do in this house even with two 10 year old daughters. We watched movies on the giant 12 foot screen. The 3 D movies were especially good. Ping pong was also a big hit! During the few times it was not raining or snowing we rode the golf cart and really enjoyed the very large hot tub. We had a nice surprise when we opened the house and it was decorated with Easter baskets and ornaments, filled with goodies. The belgium waffle maker was also a nice surprise! The furnishings are very nice with a "beachy" feel. The owners are wonderful with great communication! We would highly recommend it!

Bachelor Party Weekend
Bachelor Party Weekend
This house has it all! We were impressed at the location (despite entering the back way). The neighborhood is laid out well, and the house is a 5-min golf cart ride from the beach. The house had plenty of beds and space with large TV's for watching the NCAA tourney. We loved the 3-D theatre, and the fire pit made for a great time for conversation. If going to Blue Chip Casino, I recommend a Taxi as opposed to the casino shuttle. Cab ride is $10 one-way. All in all, we were very impressed with the house even if we didn't use the hot tub. This house is highly recommended by all in our group.

Best Beach House Around
Best Beach House Around
I rented out this beach house for my family during the summer. Its been many months since we rented, but the kids won't stop talking about it!!! The movie theatre with 3-D glasses was such a wonderful treat, especially since there were so many movies to choose from. The house was very clean upon arrival and the owner (Jeff) is very accommodating and truly cared that we had a good time. I will definitely be back to enjoy what this beach house has to offer!!

This is our second time renting this house. No doubt, that we found the perfect home for our huge family to spend the holidays together in Michigan City. Thank you, Jeff for the wonderful service, and for letting us use/rent your home. You really exceeded our expectations. I hope you found the special bottle of wine that we left for you in your kitchen, as a token of our gratitude - enjoy it! Thank you. We will be back next year!
