Chicago, IL

Great place for a large group beach vacation!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we had a great time staying at the house (west side)! It is very spacious and it was great to only be steps from the beach. We loved watching the sunrise and the sunset over Lake Michigan from the back porch. Maria has a number of beach games/rafts/chairs that are available to use as well. The only things that made it slightly difficult were the dishwasher that didn't work and the dryer that took a couple of cycles to dry a full load of towel. The east side of the house is already renovated, and I'm told that the west side will be renovated for this coming summer, so that should take care of those 2 issues. Otherwise, it was a wonderful stay!

Best location

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family and friends enjoyed being so close to the beach, in fact right on the beach! A large variety of beach toys and chairs are provided. We rented the west side of duplex and it is rustic but easy to enjoy. We also enjoyed some fantastic sunsets (including some of Chicago's tallest buildings) from the large deck and campfires on the beach. A concert in Washington Park was pleasant and the zoo was fun too. Our ND family took advantage of the short (40 minutes) drive to campus.

Maria, the owner, was responsive and easy to reach.

We are looking forward to repeating next year!!

The Best Beach location !

  • 4 of 5

This is our 4 th year at this charming, comfortable beach house and we love every moment there!

The home is spacious and clean. Recently updated kitchen makes meal prep a breeze. Plenty of room for dining inside and out including the large enclosed porch ,

The beach is just a short walk from the back yard and there are plenty of beach chairs and toys for everyone.

We feel sunsets are an event not to be missed and we grab our glass of wine and hit the back deck and start the countdown.

great location

  • 3 of 5

The duplex was in a great location. It was on the beach and our families enjoyed the stay. We had small kids with us so the rental property on the beach was exactly what we were looking for. The owner told us that there will be updates to the kitchen and the porch. If that happens by next summer, we would love to come back. It was a close drive from home and a very nice beach.
