Michigan City House Rental Photos and Description

Come check out the fabulous new touches on Moondance! Located in the acclaimed Beachwalk resort community in the Indiana Dunes off of Lake Michigan, this house ("Moondance") and its perfect central location is a Beachwalk favorite.

Unique among Beachwalk homes, Moondance has an open floor plan with massive cathedral ceilings perfect for hosting large family gatherings. The home was beautifully refurnished for 2013. The home has a fully stocked kitchen with granite counters and glass tile backsplash. A large, yet cozy great room with seating for everyone, porches and decks galore mean gathering spaces for the whole family. Indoor dining space for 16. Outdoor dining for another 16, plus a special outdoor kids table that seats 8. Bedrooms with all the right touches will suit couples, children, grandparents and last minute visitors. Moondance even comes complete with its own house golf cart for your use and enjoyment! Moondance is steps to everything Beachwalk has to offer: pool, tennis, basketball, 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. This home has everything you could possibly want. You will not regret it. Peak Season (June-August) Friday-Friday rentals only.

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.

Christy, Jennifer, Julia or Vanessa purchased this house in 2012

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.

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.

Reviewer Comments:
The house is beautiful, spacious, and well stocked with anything you might need. It's a great house for children as they have games, toys, but no clutter. The front and back porch was amazing and since the weather was gorgeous we made good use of those areas. The house is a few blocks from the main beach and maybe 4 blocks from a cool park that's set up like an obstacle course (wish we had more of these in the Chicago suburbs!). It was a wonderful stay and we hope to return to this house in the future!

We are renting Moondance as a group of six therapists and two trainers for several weekends this year. The house is absolutely beautiful, comfortable, extremely clean and stocked with everything we need for a relaxing training during the day and relaxing in the evening. I can see how families would very much enjoy their stay there, going to the beach, cooking out, visiting or sunbathing on the several decks. Lots of space to be together and also to be alone if one desires. Go for it!

Great open space concept for the purpose I was there...scrapbooking retreat. The natural light was great!

Only complaint was that it was a bit dusty with certain areas not well cleaned/maintained.

Reviewer Comments:
We rented Moondance for my sister's 40th Birthday.
The house was large enough for all 15 of us to sleep
comfortably. The open floorplan made it perfect
for all of us. Very clean and organized with all the
amenities for cooking. We could not get the fireplace to work
and nobody could help us with that after hours. Great location!
Cant wait to come back in the summer.

Manager responded on 3/13/2014:
Michelle, we are so happy to know you had a wonderful stay. I am sorry to hear that you couldn't get the fireplace to work. We do have a 24 hour number you can call for help with any and everything. Do you have any suggestions on how we can advertise this better for other guests so that this problem doesn't happen in the future? Thanks, Beachwalk Staff
