Great getaway

Everything was excellent including all of the extras, however, the hot tub was lukewarm and the chemicals seemed high. Lots of burning watery eyes and lungs. Loved everything else!! Would definitely go back!!

The Greatest Day in the Life!!

  • 5 of 5
There are not enough great things to say about our stay at A Day in the Life! We had every age group represented and there is truly fun for all ages. The little kids loved the jungle room and the movie room, the (almost) teenager loved the video games and the pool table/ping pong table, and the adults loved the wi/fi, coffee, and snacks (and all the trips to the grocery store we were spared for forgotten items by having all the amenities available at the house). The golf cart and beach access is wonderful and even in late September when Beachwalk Lane has almost cleared out, the beach was beautiful and sunny. The owner has really thought of everything! From fluffy towels and robes to shampoo and toiletries to movie treats and popcorn, it was impossible to be bored for a minute. There is hardly any time to relax with all the activities that the house provides!
Although almost everything you could imagine needing is supplied and the whole house is very user friendly, the owner was accessible and texted back immediately to answer any questions that we had and tell us where everything could be found. And don't forget to check out The Stray Dog in nearby New Buffalo, MI for dinner and drinks!
We look forward to spending many more vacations in the future at a Day in the Life!

Awesome!

"A Day in the Life" is everything it is described to be - and more. Our family of 6 (with 4 kids ranging in age from 5 to 13) had our best week of the summer here. The house has something for everyone and Jeff has included all of the extras. We didn't even have time to take advantage of all of the great things about this house. Our highlights included the pink golf cart, the unbelievable (and fully stocked!) movie theater, game table, stocked kitchen, and bikes. Thank you Jeff for all you did to make our stay so memorable. We're already looking forward to our return trip :)

Visit to a "Day in the Life Beach Cottage"

Visit to a "Day in the Life Beach Cottage"
  • 5 of 5
A “Day in the Life Beach Cottage” is truly everything it’s described to be and more…if you can believe it! The owner of this home truly has class and loves to share it with others! The home is extremely accommodating and is probably better stocked than my own with amenities. The location is superb and love being able to see Lake Kai all the time. The convenience of the golf cart, mopeds, bikes, etc. truly adds to the experience….and all without the hassle of arranging rental with someone else. We had a few cooler nights, even in July, and the hot tub provided great entertainment for us. The themed rooms were a lot of fun. Of course, everyone loved the theater room, and the younger two loved the themed animal kingdom room. One of my favorite conveniences was the ice machine and it came in extremely convenient for packing coolers for the beach. Again, the owner of this home is extremely generous and has definitely set up this rental home as a full-service resort without being there. With all that’s provided, it’s very easy to pack light, even for a whole week’s stay at the beach. This was our third visit to Beachwalk and the most comfortable and accommodating home yet! We will definitely be back!! Thanks again for such generosity!

Awesome Stay!!

  • 5 of 5
My family consisting of 3 couples, 2 adults and 3 children three years old and younger really enjoyed our stay at this great house. The house had everything you need. Don't bother packing beach towels, or lawn chairs, the owner provide plenty and much more. The house's decor is of a true beach house. It is bright and beach themed. The kids absolutely loved the jungle room's animals. The biggest obstacle I had in finding a beach house for our group was finding bedrooms for everyone. My husband, son and myself used the theater room as our bedroom. We thought we were taking one for the team, but it ended up being the best choice for us. The room is huge, with a very comfy pull out, and it's the only one with an amazing bathroom and did I mention the screened in porch that we had access to. The house is a short golf cart away from the beach, which is beautiful and clean. If your family is looking for a fun, fully equipped house, with days on the beach, evenings riding bikes down to the park, and night by a fire pit, this is the house for you. I couldn't tell you the number of times I heard people waking by saying, look at what that house has, I wish ours had that. There are no worries at The Day in the Life!

family reunion

  • 5 of 5
The owner of this property mentioned he wants his quests to feel like they are staying at a 5-Star Luxury Hotel; and I have to say everything possible has been done to exceed that promise.
I planned a family reunion for 20 people and we rented A Day in the Life and the property across the street, an awesome combination for a group that included young and not so young adults. A Day in the Life was our “activity” house; designed for play with an unbelievable set-up. Even the décor won’t allow you to get bored. Great posters!
The theater room made it difficult to get out into the sunshine, so a few rainy days were welcome. With many persnickety chefs in our group, we were delighted to find a well equipped kitchen with high quality appliances and tools. I was even surprised that there were multiple size pillows on most beds for those who prefer thick or thin.
The owner has notably worked very hard to provide anything you could possibly need. Forgot sunscreen? Got it. Need duct tape? Got it. Foot powder? Got it. Jacuzzi tub with Mr. Luffa? Covered. Need Advil? No problem. Balls, bats, bikes, jump ropes, paddle boat, kayak, moped, golf cart, swings, porch furniture, fire pit, grill, poker, pool, ping pong, coffee, espresso, soda fountain, games, video games, ice, and the list goes on and on.
I was a bit concerned; photos don't show bathrooms and all the beds, but you shouldn't be. The beds were queens or twins as mentioned (no full size) and mattresses very high quality. The twin bunk room has a small TV and is larger than it looks. There is a nice size bedroom on the first level that sleeps five; 2 Queens (one with twin bunk). It's next to a bathroom so anyone who needs quick access in the middle of the night; this is a good room for them. I slept on the futon in the theater room one night and it's comfortable and steps from the nicest bathroom in the house with walk-in shower and big tub. The third bathroom is in the hall on the same floor next to the hunting room and jungle room. It has a tube for washing up kids at the end of the day with "Kiddy" style towels – too cute.
I have tried to think of one negative thing to mention about this property, but challenged to find a complaint. All I can say is you won't be disappointed.
