                                                Another awesome vacation

                                                Sarah S.

                                                My family and I had another great vacation at the Pineapple Retreat! We couldn't believe it had already been 5 years since we had been there before and we don't know why we waited so long. The house is SO nice. They provide everything you might need including a wagon, stroller, booster seat, beach bag, beach blanket, movies, you name it! We enjoyed the pool a lot! The kiddie pool was great for my toddler. The beach is a 5 minute walk away. And we also enjoyed the Washington Park Zoo that is a 3 minute drive, if that. Thank you, again!

                                                Ashley T.Indianapolis, IN

                                                We had a girls weekend at the Pineapple Retreat and had the best time. The house is in a perfect location and so close to the beach. The community is absolutely adorable as well. We did the winery tours and were in great location to that. There was a small hiccup in checking in, but the owners were very accommodating and sincere. The owners respond quickly and will help with any recommendations.

                                                Even though we did a girls weekend, this house is perfect for families as well. The house is set up in a great way with plenty of beds to sleep. Loved the back patio area and grill! All the linens and kitchen utensils are provided. They have many spices and condiments available for use.

                                                I would recommend this to any of my friends and family. Great location, great house, great owners. Thank you for everything!

                                                Fantastic Home and Great Location!


                                                We spent a week at the Pineapple Retreat with our children and grandchildren and we loved the house and the surrounding area. Things we liked best:

                                                1) The kitchen and family room open layout is very inviting, comfortable and great for conversations and fun.

                                                2) A spacious kitchen stocked with every utensil and appliance you will ever need plus spices, condiments, and other essentials. Ideal for anyone who loves to cook and/or eat!

                                                3) Very short walk from both the pool and Sheridan Beach (so beautiful!)

                                                4) Few minutes’ drive from the Washington Park Zoo, the outlet malls, and great restaurants (Shoreline Brewery, Stop 50 Pizzeria, and Pickle & Turnip – yum!).

                                                We very much enjoyed our time at the Pineapple Retreat and I’ve already recommended it to family and friends. We will definitely be back!!!

                                                What a great stay!


                                                We stayed for a short weekend, but wish we had booked more time. The home is perfectly positioned in the Beachwalk community. Walkable within a half of block to the beach or pool. It appeared golf carts were available for rental as well if needed for $80/day. The house is set up nicely for two families sharing. There are two larger rooms with king/queen beds and then two smaller rooms with bunk beds for kids. An open concept LR kitchen with a great front porch area and back screened in porch. Nicely equipt with kitchenware. We had a great stay!

                                                Wonderful home with All Amenities

                                                Sharon N.Chicago, IL

                                                This home is absolutely perfect for a beach vacation getaway. It is really beautiful with a great open layout on the main floor and spacious bedrooms upstairs. We had two families with 5 kids total, but could have easily had another family. Pineapple Retreat is filled with everything you could possibly need--from a sandpit for the kids to play in to beachchairs to beach coolers to games for kids and adults to a fully stocked kitchen (more dishes, cups, wine glasses, cookware, spices and condiments than you could imagine.) It is the perfect distance between the pool and the beach. We kayaked, learned to paddleboard and spent countless hours at the beach and playing in the pool. Wonderful home and wonderful vacation.

                                                Perfect family vacation!

                                                A guest from Buffalo Grover, ILChicago, IL

                                                We stayed at the Pineapple Retreat with a few families including a few young children and everything about our stay was perfect. The house is stocked with everything you might need including cots for young children, plenty of linens, kitchen supplies/condiments, screened porch, etc. The home is beautifully decorated, clean, more spacious than the pictures make it seem and child-friendly (cushioned stairs covered with non-slip mats, minimal/no sharp edges/corners). We have stayed at a few different homes on the Beachwalk and so far this has been our favorite. We hope to be back again soon!
