Easy to say we had a blast staying in this house. House had everything you need and then some. Great location with people not on top of you as they are in other areas of Beachwalk.
Great people to work with. We had a great time and will be back.
Extraordinary attention to detail. This vacation home feels like home. Our family had a ball!
"A Day In The Life" is a one of a kind vacation home. During our week-long stay we felt like every need was met---and then some. Our seven kids--ranging in age from 12y-24 we're able to enjoy each other at the lake, while watching movies on the theater or hanging out on the porches. We can't say enough great things about this being a wonderful place for families to enjoy Lake Michigan while enjoying each other. The house is huge, beds are super comfortable, and the kitchen has everything you'll need to feed your crew. Beachwalk, itself is a wondeful secret on Lake Michigan and we felt like kings and queens staying in one of the best homes in this lovely community. We'll definitely return to " A Day In The Life" for our next visit. Thank you for the fabulous memories!
We were really impressed in the amount of detail the Shaw's put into their home
There were 5 bikes that were beautiful for us to use the kids used the kayaks
The media room was a hit as was the jungle room very nice supplied kitchens with Rachel raye pots and pans as well as blenders and panini maker
We played pool and game boards before going out to a fire for s'more
The 2 golf were also a great time to get down to the beach
Pool was nice as was the hot tub
All in all a great experience
Awesome stay at Beachwalk!!
We have stayed at other homes in the Beachwalk resort, and this has been our favorite! It is absolutely perfect for every age!! Kids and adults alike wil love this home equally! We loved all the breakfast goodies, ice, water, pop, etc. that are included with this home. The entertainment systems in the home are amazing; theater room, updates televisions and gaming systems. The massage chair was the perfect way to relax while the kids watched a movie! The home is close to the smaller lake, and comes with kayaks and a paddle boat. You will never get bored renting this home, even if the weather doesn't allow you to be out and about! The golf cart is perfect for getting you to Lake Michigan and around the resort. The park is a quick walk away, and the pool just down the street!
I would definitely recommend this home to others!
It doesn't get any better.
Simply the best lakeside house destination you could ask for. Five stars isn't enough!
Place is awesome, can't beat the amenities
Even with bad weather we had a blast, would definately stay again
