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.

Simply the best

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough good things about this property and the owner! We have used this house for a group vacation with high school seniors for the last three years, and the house never disappoints. The home is well-decorated and is very comfortable, with every amenity you could possibly want. The kids love all the video games and theater room, and there are tons of bikes, a paddle boat, mopeds, a golf cart, and a bags set to entertain everyone outside, as well as free access to the Beachwalk pool and chairs and "toys" for a day on the beach. We have stayed at other properties in the past, and they have offered nothing for the kids to do on the inevitable rain day that happens, so this house saves us a ton of money by having all the entertainment we need. Questions for the owner are quickly answered and he goes above and beyond to make sure all needs are met. I can't imagine staying anywhere else in Michigan City.

We had a great time staying at this house. They have so many extra's that I don't think any of the other rental houses in the area do. We did have a couple issues/questions but the owner was quick to try and help and easy to get in contact with. I would definitely recommend this house to a friend or return myself for another visit.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
The house is simply amazing. The amount of activities included in the house are by far the best I have ever had while using VRBO, Jeff has personalized robes which everyone loved. The game room and projector screen are awesome for playing video games and watching movies. The neighborhood is very nice as well, some of the areas in Michigan City are sub-par but this location is in an extremely nice area. All and all the house was by far my best VRBO stay in my 6 years of using it. I would highly recommend this house to anyone who is looking for rental in Michigan City, there is something here for everyone of any age. Thanks for everything Jeff!
