Description from owner
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. 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).

“Definitely needs update”
Just came back from a weeks stay at the Sun King and Jester. We were a family of 17. The house is spacious and roomy but was very disappointed because it wasn't clean and is very run down. You… More
Response from the owner We are sorry to hear this. Yes, floors are hard to keep clean in a sandy beach environment. That is a truth anywhere at the beach. Also surprised to hear about the freezer complaint considering the house has four full refrigerators in addition to a commercial ice maker. That is plenty of space even if one is on the fritz (which was promptly replaced after your stay).
“Room,space for everyone!”
The wealthier was miserable, which we realized could happen to us but it did not stop us from totally enjoying ourselves...from bridge to board games to charades, it was all about a reunion and being… More
“Beautiful and spacious home”
We stayed in this house with a group of 4 families, and had plenty of space for everyone! We really appreciated having two eating areas so that everyone could sit at the same time, with a bit of sepa… More
“Perfect fit for our group”
We stayed at Sun King/Jester for a long weekend with three other families. There was plenty of room for us to spread out and play games. We loved the two tables--one for kids to eat at, one for the ad… More
This was an excellent place. Plenty of room for the kids to play and parents to visit. Short walk to visit the beautiful great lake.
“Wonderful Family Holiday”

“She's a beauty”
I'm not much of a review guy, but I felt compelled to do so with this place. My family and 3 others ( a total of 8 adults & 10 kids) decided to get away for a weekend, so I did a little rese… More
“Beautiful, as always!”
This is the second year my family, friends and I have booked this home in Beachwalk. We cannot say enough wonderful things about the space, as there is plenty of room to move around without feeling ov… More
“The community was great the house left a lot to be desired.”
Sun King and the Jester has potential. BUT!!!! The house is tired and rundown. On a whole the house was not clean. Floors had been wet mopped but not really cleaned. Rugs are stained. Furniture … More
Response from the owner We are sorry you felt that way, Alfred. We take new photos every year, so the photos are current. The carpeting and rugs are literally brand new as of this April. And the porches are cleaned prior to every arrival. After your rental we reached out again to our cleaning crew to emphasize the importance of their role, recognizing that the beach is inherently sandy. We put tremendous effort into keeping this a first class rental and have rented this house with great success year in and out and, gratifyingly, your negative views appear to be unique.
This place was amazing! Everything is set up so nicely and it's roomier than I ever could have imagined. My family and I, along with some friends, went up here after I got married and spent a few… More
