Overview

About the property

7 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, Sleeps 24

Sun King, and the included coach house The Jester, combine to create one of Beachwalk’s largest properties, complete with 7 bedrooms and 6 full bathrooms. In addition to being one of the largest, Sun King is also one of the most well-loved, with families returning year after year and consistently providing rave reviews. And it is one of the most well-maintained houses in Beachwalk, with the owners annually reinvesting much of the income derived from rentals into improving the property. For 2018, the owners are adding a completely new full bathroom on the second floor to minimize the need for families to share bathroom space with other families.

Like all Beachwalk homes, Sun King comes complete with the usual amazing Beachwalk amenities--swimming pool, tennis court, basketball court, beach volleyball, boardwalk leading to Lake Michigan's most beautiful beach, interior Lake Kai for kayaking, turtle-hunting, or relaxing, the custom sand castle park, kitty-corner waterfall park, next door to Central Park with summer concerts, and more! But unlike most homes, Sun King also includes a custom designed house golf cart for renter use, a large outdoor fire pit for marshmallow roasts and family bonding, a crib, a garage filled with beach and other toys, plenty of parking including one garage spot, an outdoor shower, and an incredible finished basement complete with a large television, ping pong table, and other assorted games. Sun King is gorgeous and in immaculate condition, with a wrap-around screened porch, hardwood floors, new kitchen counters and appliances, multi-level decks (several of which were recently replaced with new Trex decking), and two dining room tables abutting each side of the open kitchen with seating for at least 20, including an enormous custom farmhouse dining table that itself comfortably seats 14. The farmhouse table sits below two end to end sea-shell chandeliers you will have to see to believe.

Sun King was designed with large groups or families in mind; you will have your pick of 7 separate and private bedrooms spread across four finished floors in the main home and a recently renovated and totally private guest house perched above the garage, with its own kitchen, dining table, flat screen television, and full bathroom. And, of course, there is plenty of space for large groups to gather and spend time together, including the massive open concept main floor centered around a fire place and large television, the seemingly endless wrap around porch complete with seating for a crowd, and a large deck with outdoor shower off the back of the house that meets up with the wrap around porch. If you are looking for a beach house to accommodate a large group or family, look no further--you won't find anything better.

Reviewer Comments:

This house is perfect for a large group of people - we had 17 with ages ranging from 3-78 and still had extra beds we didn't use. We rent houses often and this is the most well stocked kitchen we have ever seen. There were more than enough dishes, and every appliance/kitchen gadget we needed for cooking a Thanksgiving dinner. The huge tables made seating everyone for meals together easy - again something that we loved and don't always get when renting. Also, ever the dishwasher going pretty much non stop and showers going all the time - we never had a shortage of hot water! The Jester was a nice place to get a way if someone needed a few minutes of quiet. The younger kids enjoyed the number of toys supplied and the teens enjoyed the ping pong table. The wrap around porch was really nice and even though it was November the weather was nice enough to enjoy it. The living room was a great place for all of us to hang out together and with the dining area right there we all had plenty of places to sit. We did have a small leak under the kitchen sink but it was fixed within 10 minutes of notifying the management company - that really impressed me. Everyone at the rental office was great to deal with from the first time we called to enquire about the resort to the day we checked out. I would highly recommend the resort and the Sun King/Jester. We plan to go back in warmer weather to enjoy all the outdoor activities.

Sun King/The Jester was a wonderful fit for our family of 22 including us as parents of 4 Children & 4 Spouses, 12 grandchildren. It was not on the main street but nestled more to the back of the properties located at BeachWalk. It was a short walk to the pool, sand volley ball, basketball court, and small dock for grandpa to take the younger boys fishing in the small lake. They caught several fish both evenings they went fishing! We enjoyed the fire pit on the evenings that were cool--plenty of chairs to sit and roast marshmellows. The golf cart came in very handy to ride up to the beach with all of the children and beach toys/chairs. We appreciated the washer/dryer that was available in our house. Plenty of tables and chairs inside and on the patio area too. The only thing we were disappointed in was the kitchen/dining room hardwood floor did not appear to be swept/scrubbed when we got there. The property managers at the office were very helpful.

Spacious and fun getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay for a girls getaway! It is a great location with shopping at Michigan City and Chicago -- just a short train ride away. The house itself is spacious with plenty of rooms for people to have their own space as well as great social areas for eating and having fun together. It would also make a nice family getaway. I hope to be back soon with my family to take advantage of the pool and nearby lake Michigan!

Great girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

We came for a girls weekend and had a great time! Plenty of room for us all to hang out together without being crowded. The house came stocked with everything we needed and there was more than enough room us all to sleep comfortably. Close to fantastic restaurants, shopping at the outlet mall, and the train for a day trip to Chicago. Hope to come enjoy this wonderful house again in the future!

Wonderful home!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great ladies weekend!! Very spacious home to accommodate all of us. Perfect location for shopping and wonderful restaurants. The office staff was extremely friendly and very helpful. Loved all of the space inside and out...screened wrap around porch and deck was fabulous. Would love to come back in the near future with a large group of friends to enjoy this home again.
