Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit to Michigan City, Indiana and our stay at About Time. The Beachwalk Resort community where the house is located, is wonderful. There are lots of amenities, such as playgrounds, a pool, tennis courts, etc. The community is very family friendly. We loved that we had such a short walk to the beach. About time is a nice home and our group of ten people had plenty of space. We hope to return!

  • 4 of 5

Perfect location near the boardwalk.

Perfect size, kitchen accessories for cooking, plenty of space for eating with a large group!

Loved all the places for quiet conversation, in addition to the large area for big groups! The two vinyl chairs, adirondack chairs on the porch!

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just got home from our six day trip to Michigan City and we stayed at the About Time residence. There were eleven of us total, including friends, and we had no issues with not having enough room. When we initially walked into the home it was very clean and well maintained. It also felt very homey which we really liked. It is stated that there are two cameras in the downstairs living area but at no point did we feel like our privacy was being infringed upon. In regards to communication, the owners were very quick to respond to emails so that is always a plus in my book. They also emailed us some helpful information prior to our stay about the home as well as the Beachwalk community. I could go into more detail but all in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay at this home again. We plan on Michigan City being a yearly get away for our family.

Perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our time at 'About Time'. From the moment we walked in, everyone felt right at home. We stayed with another family, so total 4 adults and 5 children in the house. There was PLENTY of space for everyone. Loved that the house was well stocked with everything we needed, including games and stuffed animals for the children. Great location, just a quick walk to the pool area, and only a bit farther to the beach. Great stay, thank you!!

Teacher's Retreat

  • 4 of 5

"About Time" offered a great gathering place for our family of Educators from Michigan for our annual "Spring Retreat". The open kitchen and family room allowed space for us all to hang out, play game, catch up and socialize. We so enjoyed that the house was so close to the boardwalk to the beach for us to watch the sunset on Lake Michigan and the catch the view of the Chicago Skyline. What a great place for a group of teachers to get away to! Nice location located close to the "Lighthouse Outlet Mall" for teachers to do a lil Spring Shopping, and catch a bit of fun and entertainment at the nearby "Blue Chip Casino".

Most rates are all inclusive - rental, linens, bath towels, resort fees, final cleaning, renters insurance and all taxes are paid. Because of this, the rates are front loaded for the first two days then a standard daily rate applies. Email me for details as the system doesn't allow for this pricing structure.
