“We're planning a second stay already!!”
Reviewed 15 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

My friends and wedding party stayed here and they are still raving about it. We are even talking about renting the house again next year so we can all get together again. The house had everything you could ask for: ample space, entertainment, great outdoor space. It was a mix of people so not everyone knew each other but by the end of the weekend, they were all the best of friends. How could you not be with fooseball, ping pong, a fire pit?? My only wish was that my husband and I could have stayed there ourselves! Though we did spend quite a bit of time there :)

“Excellent Home!”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were a group of 23 people. Our group comprised of mostly teenagers and staff. This home provided plenty of space for all of us to enjoy a few days away. We watched movies, played cards and games as a group. We had plenty of space to prepare meals and eat together. The home is wonderful! The neighborhood is charming, we had a great time using the pool as well as going to the beach. We took the train into Chicago and the station is only a few miles away from the house. There are plenty of grocery store options in driving distance. Overall an amazing home and great location. The teens we were with can't wait to go back!

“Enormous Amount of Room”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had 21 people staying at Sun King and Jester including nine children - six who are 4 or younger. This house has a tremendous amount of room for us all to relax, play together, eat together inside or outside, or to curl up by ourselves with a book or TV. The inside is bright and cheery. The kitchen is huge and well equipped. The bedrooms in the main house have extra space for pack-n-plays or just to spread out. There are games galore, action-figures, sand toys and a big sandbox. The chairs and beds were comfortable and clean. The surrounding Beachwalk community and nearby beach provide plenty to do. Adults and children alike thoroughly enjoyed themselves!

“2 families and some winter fun!!!”
Reviewed 26 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

person found this review helpful

Our family stayed at Sun King this January with a few other friends and their families. We knew Beachwalk is great in the summer---but, wow, we were blown away by how much fun we had in the winter. The kids went ice skating and sledding. The parents went cross country skiing. And we all ended the day playing games, telling jokes, and bonding around the fireplace at Sun King. What an amazing house. The bedrooms are seemingly endless and all fabulously appointed. The kitchen is better stocked than my kitchen at home. Plates, silverware, and glasses for a crowd. I cannot recommend Sun King enough if you are looking for a fun weekend getaway. Only an hour from Chicago. Can't beat it.

“Perfect vacation for a large group”
Reviewed 18 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We met up with a few of our friends with young families for a long weekend. It is a very cute place, smartly painted. There is a huge walk around porch when you go through the front doors, and though we obviously couldn't use it our selves, we thought how great it would be in the summer.

When we opened the door, we were immediately struck by the open area, the great amount of light coming in from the windows, and by the fantastic dining room table that looked like it could seat everyone. Unlike most rentals for big groups, we also found out later that they actually had matching settings for all 24 guests - it really felt like a home.

While each of the couples tried to hide it, everyone wanted to check out rooms and not get stuck in the famous rental double twin room - to our surprise, four of the bedrooms were perfect for couples! All decorated nicely, most with queens, and one with a king! One room even had a crib for their youngest.

The last couple that showed up was coming late and had a newborn, so they decided to stay at the coach house, the Jester. Turns out, it may have been the best place of all! They could be right in the thick of it when they wanted, but could get away for nap times and nursing in their own super cute private retreat.

Once we settled in, the kids spent time hanging out in the basement, watching movies and playing pool. It was great, as us adults could sit in the living room with the fireplace going and catch up.

The kitchen was one of the most fully stocked of any place we have ever stayed at, and it was great to have so many people around the table at once.

The next day, we wandered off to the beach to see the ice dunes, which are amazing. The beach is beautiful, and almost feels private as I don't see how people would be able to get there unless they live in the resort or houses on the beach. After that, we took the kids to the park, where they had a blast.

Everyone had such a great time, and we can only imagine how great a place this would be in the summer.
