Beachwalk is such a unique community that it is hard to explain to people who have never been there - until they arrive - and become believers themselves. I have had comments made like, 'If you would have put me in an airplane, blindfolded me, and brought me here I would have thought I was in Florida' or from an East Coast friend, 'This reminds me of the Jersey shore' (not the show - thank God - but the atmosphere). Even our friends from St Louis love coming here because it doesn't have the humidity they get down there or at the Ozarks.
The white picket fences greet you and the colorful homes amaze you yet you can settle in immediately, take a deep breath and quickly realize you are already relaxed.
Our home was designed for big groups. We created a large living space to congregate in and minimized the bedrooms (we figured the only time you want to spend in there is when you are sleeping). From the outside the home appears smaller than it is, surprising most of our guests when they first arrive. There is plenty of seating to relax and enjoy the time you spend at Picture Perfect. Speaking of the home name, we came up with it because we rent it out from September through May to scrapbooking groups for their weekend cropping getaways.

About the owner: Michigan City is like a second home to me. I have been visiting the area since 1978 when my family owned a boat and we kept it in Washington Park Marina. I love the beach life and now my family and I enjoy it on a regular basis. We built our home in 2004, designed by a life-long friend who is an architect and has built three of her own homes in the Michigan City, Grand Beach, New Buffalo area. Our family of five has created many fun memories of our time spent in Beachwalk and the countless hours spent on the beach playing volleyball, frisbee, bags, building sandcastles, bodysurfing the waves, skim boarding and so much more. Our ability to get out there is changing as the kids get older so we want others to be able to enjoy the same fun lifestyle.
Why the Owner Chose Michigan City: Beachwalk is the only true beach community along the shores of Lake Michigan in my eyes. Having access to a tennis court, basketball court, sand volleyball court, in ground pool, putting green, playground with big slide and mini zipline is great when the beach weather is not cooperative. Set back two blocks from the beach, it provides shelter from the elements. The picket fences and front porches are comforting as you walk around the community to view the multi-colored homes with unique architectural designs.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We decided to create a large living and dining area because that is where people congregate to spend time together. The home has 2,425 sq ft of living space and a large portion of that is on the first floor. Vaulted ceilings and a gas fireplace open up the home beautifully. We installed granite countertops for durability. The hardwood and tile floors are ideal for a sandy beach house. There is a second refrigerator for 'beverages' so they don't clutter up the food storage one.
