  • Michigan City rental

    "This is a very charming home just minutes away from the beach. Very bright with lot's of windows and plenty of places to sit and relax. The house had everything needed for a nice vacation. Off street parking was excellent as well."

  • Charming! Charming! Charming!

    "We stayed at Wildheart last summer and loved it! There is plenty of room for a big group. Large dining table with plenty of windows to enjoy the lake breeze. Comfortable furniture to lounge on in the living room. The screened porch is absolutely adorable! Perfect place to relax and read a book or have snacks and chat! We also sat out on the patio or took a nap on the hammock. The lower level is a great place for kids to sleep and hangout. Very clean and well maintained. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach, zoo, and park. Great area with wonderful restaurants and lots to do! We fell in love with the area and decided to buy our own place and will have relatives and friends stay at Wildheart when visiting! We highly recommend Wildheart!"

  • a true castle in the sand

    "A well laid out, roomie house. A well appointed kitchen, except the very old oven did not work. Could use an upgraded oven & dishwasher. Addition of a fire pit would be nice too. Loved the private deck off master & the roof top deck was a great spot for day/night gazing. Nice furnishings & beach decor. Huge beach towels provided (need hooks for drying tho) Close to beach. Have stayed in 10+ homes in BW, Would rent 'Castle' again."

  • Family Vacation Beachwalk Indiana

    "We had a wonderful time at this house. It was spacious enough to give us room to spread out but not so huge we were lost in it. The front porch was very wide and had a great swing, great for morning coffee. The screen porch in the back, although detached from the house was awesome, a table and chairs to eat at and comfortable furniture to rest on. The house was very close to the beach which was great for the little kids. We had plenty of room to put all the food and snacks we brought as the kitchen is a good size. A minor drawback was there is no where in the yard for kids to play as the landscaping is very thick and tall. There are playgrounds nearby but sometimes it would have been nice for them to play right there. All in all it was a wonderful week. We grilled out most nights and had great weather. I would recommend this house highly."
