"The pictures don't do this home justice. It is larger than the pictures appear. The renters are very nice. Walking distance to the beach and zoo. Loved the outside shower to get the sand off the little ones. I would definitely come back again."

"My family I recently stayed 5 days, 4 nights and had a great, relaxing time. There were 4 adults, two children, and a teenager and there was more than enough room for all of us. The house was very clean and was stocked with all but food. We arrived Sunday before official check-in time, and Albert was fantastic and let us check-in early! We dropped our bags off and made the short 5 minute walk to the beach. The beach was GORGEOUS!. Soft sands and crystal clear water. On the ultra clear days, Chicago skyline is very visible from the beach. Since the house is located in a community, you also get the benefit of the beach being private!. Monday-Thursday, there were literally only one or two other families on our stretch of beach! The Indiana Dunes and Marquette Park are each a definite must, as both offered amazing views of the lake from the top of a dune. If you are looking for a place that was vibrant nightlife and places to go each night, this will not be the place for you, but if you are looking for a quiet relaxing time with all of the necessities, then this will be perfect. I would definitely stay again, as essentially having the beach to yourself, on a hot sunny day, with nothing but the sound of your kids and the small waves hitting the shore, is priceless. Small bonus, there is a Doe and her two fawns that live in the wooded area behind the house, we got to see them multiple times. :)"

Great accommodations, very clean, spacious, and hospitable hosts.
"This was a great family vacation as I had Both adult sons and their wives along and 2 grandsons plus my dad. Enough room to spread out and not be on top of each other. Room to go outside and do things if we weren't out in our boat."

"My wife, 3 children and I had a wonderful time staying at the Cool Beach House! the beach is just steps from the beach. The neighbourhood is very quiet and not touristic at all. The beach is perfect, with the skyline of Chicago within sight. The owners are very attentive and helpful. Frans, The Netherlands"
