About the Property

6 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 16

Located in the acclaimed Beachwalk resort community in the Indiana Dunes on Lake Michigan, just one hour from Chicago, this house ("Moondance") and its perfect central location is a Beachwalk favorite.

Unique among Beachwalk homes, Moondance has an open floor plan with a stunning cathedral ceiling perfect for hosting large family gatherings. Moondance has a large fully stocked kitchen with granite counters and glass tile back-splash along with all new stainless steel appliances. A large great room has seating for everyone, and porches and decks galore mean gathering spaces for the whole family, plus privacy when you want it. Indoor dining space for 16. Outdoor dining for another 16, plus a special outdoor kids table that seats 8. Bedrooms (including both ground floor and second floor masters) with all the right touches will suit couples, children, grandparents and last minute visitors. Moondance even comes complete with its own custom painted house golf cart (except in winter) for your use and enjoyment! Recently, Moondance' owners worked hard to finish the 1,000 square foot basement, which is now a playful rec room complete with 46 inch flat panel DVD player, and DirecTV with whole house DVR (there are five total in the house), and a multi-colored striped floor that kids love. (NOTE: The basement has 6 foot ceilings, and thus is ideal for kids or for watching movies, but it is not habitable space by code and thus it cannot be used for sleeping.)

In addition, Moondance is steps to everything Beachwalk has to offer: community private pool, private tennis, basketball, and beach volleyball courts, a short walk to Beachwalk's own Lake Kai complete with free kayaks and stand up paddle boards during the summer, custom sand castle playground and, of course, Lake Michigan's most beautiful beach. Unlike many rental homes, the owners of Moondance put much of the rental income they receive into upgrading and improving the property each year.

Most recently, for 2017, the owners invested in all new furniture for the great room, including three new couches, and added a second full refrigerator (if you are like us, you arrive with a week's worth of food and need somewhere to put it!), and replaced all the deck handrails for increased safety. This house has everything you could possibly want. You will not regret it.

Peak Season (June-August) Friday-Friday rentals only.

Beachwalk Vacation Rentals

About: The owners, Adam and Jessica, are a young professional couple from Chicago with toddler twins, a boy and a girl. Adam grew up in Chicago and his family would spend at least one week every summer renting a house on Lake Michigan, either in the Indiana Dunes or, more often, somewhere in Michigan. Some of Adam's greatest childhood memories are from times spent on the beaches of Lake Michigan and he has long dreamed of owning his own beachhouse one day. Jessica grew up in South Dakota, where the lakes are nothing like Lake Michigan. She soon learned to share Adam's love of Lake Michigan and his dream of owning a beachhouse. A few years ago, Adam's family rented a home in Beachwalk, and both Adam and Jessica knew they has found the perfect place for them. Beachwalk is close to Chicago, on one of the most beautiful stretches of Lake Michigan beach anywhere, with the additional charms and activities available with interior Lake Kai. And Beachwalk is super family friendly. Adam, Jessica, and their twins absolutely love spending weeks or weekends at the beachhouse, which they named Moondance, driving around on the golf cart, making sand castles, throwing the frisbee in Lake Michigan or in the pool, searching for turtles in Lake Kai, kayaking, playing at the amazing custom playground, watching the most gorgeous sunsets known to man, or just relaxing on one of the many decks. Adam and Jessica have come to especially love Beachwalk in the quieter off-season, with beautiful foliage, apple picking, sledding in the dunes, or enjoying a quiet spring morning. Truly a paradise just an hour drive from home.

Why Michigan City, IN, USA:
Before they purchased Moondance (then called Pleasant Palm), Adam and Jessica looked at many homes in Beachwalk, but knew this was the perfect home for them the moment they stepped in the door. Unlike many homes in Beachwalk, Moondance has an entirely open first floor, perfect for entertaining and hosting large groups. The enormous vaulted ceilings provide a charm unmatched in Beachwalk. Add to that the four large decks and an absolutely prime central location, and Adam and Jessica were soon collecting their pennies to try to put together an offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Moondance, is managed by Beachwalk Vacation Rentals, benefits of which include on-site staff to welcome you at check-in, answer questions, 24 hour maintenance, and provides the security of the afterhours answering service for emergencies. Additional benefits include access to Rentals including Golf Carts, bicycles and the beach wheelchair. DVD's located in the gift shop free for all of our guests to check out during your stay.
