Beachwalk Resort is an award winning beach community located right next to the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore on one of Lake Michigan's most beautiful stretches of beach. Sun King, and the included coach house Jester, combine to create one of Beachwalk’s largest properties, complete with 7 bedrooms and 6 full bathrooms. And Sun King is a true beach house—modeled after the Kennedy Compound in Nantucket—with a wrap-around screen porch, windows galore, and plenty of outdoor living. Unsurprisingly, it is one of the most well-loved houses in Beachwalk, with families returning year after year.

And Sun King is a true beach house—modeled after the Kennedy Compound in Nantucket—with a wrap-around screen porch, windows galore, and plenty of outdoor living. Unsurprisingly, it is one of the most well-loved houses in Beachwalk, with families returning year after year. One of the reasons for its huge popularity is that the owners annually reinvest much of the income derived from rentals into improving the property. For 2021, this offseason the house will be painted a fresh bright orange exterior, and interior floors will be refinished and walls painted as well. This to go along with a newly upgraded kitchen that includes two full refrigerators and a commercial grade ice maker. Sun King comes complete with the usual amazing Beachwalk amenities--swimming pool, tennis court, basketball court, beach volleyball, boardwalk leading to Lake Michigan's most beautiful beach, interior Lake Kai for kayaking, turtle-hunting, or relaxing, the custom sand castle park, kitty-corner waterfall park, next door to Central Park with summer concerts, and more! But unlike most homes, Sun King also includes a custom designed house golf cart for renter use, a large outdoor fire pit for marshmallow roasts and family bonding, a crib, a garage filled with beach and other toys, plenty of parking including one garage spot, an outdoor shower, and an incredible finished basement complete with a large television, ping pong table, and other assorted games. Sun King is gorgeous and in immaculate condition, with a wrap-around screened porch, hardwood floors, new kitchen counters and appliances, multi-level decks (several of which were recently replaced with new composite decking), and two dining room tables abutting each side of the open kitchen with seating for at least 20, including an enormous custom farmhouse dining table that itself comfortably seats 14. The farmhouse table sits below two end to end sea-shell chandeliers you will have to see to believe. Sun King was designed with large groups or families in mind; you will have your pick of 7 separate and private bedrooms spread across four finished floors in the main home and a recently renovated and totally private guest house perched above the garage, with its own kitchen, dining table, flat screen television, and full bathroom. And, of course, there is plenty of space for large groups to gather and spend time together, including the massive open concept main floor centered around a fire place and large television, the seemingly endless wrap around porch complete with seating for a crowd, and a large deck with outdoor shower off the back of the house that meets up with the wrap around porch. If you are looking for a beach house to accommodate a large group or family, look no further--you won't find anything better. (NOTE: From May-September, Beachwalk charges a $10 per guest weekly fee for use of the pool--this will be collected either by the resort staff upon arrival or you can pay in advance). More

About the neighbourhood
Indiana Dunes National Park sits right next door to the award winning Beachwalk Resort. Beachwalk is located alongside one of Lake Michigan's most beautiful stretches of beach, and has a private boardwalk entrance to the beach. In addition, Beachwalk has its own internal lake, Lake Kai, with free paddle board and kayak rental available. The homes are all multi-colored, with large porches, and designed with family time in mind. Beachwalk's custom designed sandcastle park and playground, its waterfall park, walking path through the dunes, and many other features make it a favorite with nearly everyone who visits. And its location, just one hour from Chicago, cannot be beat.
