“Just what summer at the lake should be.”
Reviewed 29 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The home was cozy. The community is family friendly, and has all of the classic summer amenities. My daughter, her friends, and many other kids found the smooth community drive to be perfect for zooming around on their scooters. The kids and adults loved being able to swim in the pool, and in Lake Michigan. We very much enjoyed our short walk to the beach, as we got to see all of the cute cottages. Using a paddle board or kayak on Lake Kai, each day, gave us an opportunity see turtles, and herons. At the pool we had soft serve, lemon shakeups, and cheeseburgers. Mint Julep was clean, and bright, with a full kitchen, and a wagon provided to haul your stuff to the pool and beach. The manager Tabitha and her fiance sugessted great restaurant ideas, and told us to take the Kids to Captain Eds Used Furniture and Candy!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our week. We only have one suggestion, and maybe we shouldn't have bothered on vacation - but, we would have liked to have had an iron and ironing board. We have been vacationing in Michigan City for 5 years, and would like to come back to Beachwalk.

“Great getaway”
Reviewed 25 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Very clean with nice finishes, and perfect size for my teen and I. I didn't see photos of the master bath, but upon arriving was pleasantly surprised that it had been recently remodeled. Marble counter, tile bath, fresh paint - and very well done.

Would definitely return every year! More than I expected!!! went for a weekend getaway with the wife and kids. The booking process was easy and the owner very friendly. Wanted us to enjoy it. The house is A1. kids loved it and we will definitely be making this part of our summer kickoff ritual. Beach is great, and the small lake on site also had activities. Close to shopping and casino too!

“Better than expected family vacation”
Reviewed 30 May 2015 for a stay in August 2014

Our family - 2 adults and 3 children- stayed a week at this house in August. This was my first visit to Michigan City and the Beachwalk community and we all had an amazing week. The house was very nice, clean and bright and the owner was wonderful to work with. They had a pack and play & high chair so we didn't have to bring one. They had free live music in the park and activities for the kids. We spent most of mornings at the beach on Lake Michigan and the afternoons at the pool. Parking is overall a little tight in this community, but besides that it was perfect!

“Clean & Quaint with a Touch of Construction Next Door”
Reviewed 25 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

person found this review helpful

My husband, infant daughter, and I just spent 3 nights at Mint Julep. The owner was very friendly and attentive as was the care taker. However, they failed to mention that there are 2 new construction homes coming up right next door which meant that we were woken up to pounding & hammering each morning (including Saturday) on our "relaxing" 3 day getaway.

The unit was very clean and updated, perfect for 2 adults and 1 small child max. There is no outside sitting area or deck off of the main level. There's a small terrace on the top floor but awkwardly situated, so not the most ideal location to sit and enjoy a BBQ. The wifi is spotty so be prepared to not use it. This unit is closer to the train tracks which are in the distance but the sound of the train isn't annoying. While there were two chairs and a dining table, there wasn't any separate area to sit in, just the main level and the upstairs bedrooms which on a rainy day can give you cabin fever pretty quickly, read small.

Overall it was a nice rental & about a 10 min walk to the beach however, we could have done without the construction and maybe added some outdoor seating.
