traveler reviews for this miller beach house rental

Loved this Guest House in the Dunes!

Review submitted: October 14, 2013   Date of arrival: August 26, 2013

The Guest House is darling! Stayed here for a late summer trip to the beach and absolutely fell in love with the place. Short walk on the trail to the gorgeous beach, surrounded by nature and secluded on a quiet street—my friends and I had THE best time. There were 6 of us and even though 1 couple stayed on the pullout couch, it was no big deal. The kitchen was great—had everything we needed and open to the living area, which was perfect, cause everyone always ends up there anyway right? Also had an amazing view of the dunes!! Who knew this was SO close to Chicago! Seriously—we will be coming back many, many more times.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: I completely agree. People always zoom right by Miller Beach to get stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic on there way to other less desirable destinations much further from Chicago with sub-standard beaches. For what? I don't know. The Guest House is LOADED with everything and is always priced right! Thank you very much for you stay and see you again in 6.5 months! Also, we are in the process of updating the furnishings in the Guest House as well.

Great Family Staycation

Review submitted: March 1, 2013   Date of arrival: February 8, 2013

I decided to book a quick winter “stay-cation” for my family and was searching for a comfortable, relaxing place where we could also enjoy the outdoors. I found the Guest House and knew it would be the perfect getaway.
The owner responded to my inquiry immediately and thoroughly walked me through all of the amenities and highlights of the home. As it turns out, we were also allowed to bring our dog!
Our stay couldn’t have been better. The kids spent the days playing in the dunes while my husband and I caught up on our reading and even a nap or two!
The house is situated on a quiet cul de sac and was such a delightful respite from our everyday hectic lives in the city. We were able to cook all meals in the fully stocked, open kitchen (with everything from utensils/pots and pans to a toaster oven, coffee machine and a dishwasher) and enjoyed having the entire family in one cozy space. All five of us fit comfortably in the house, with one bedroom for my husband and I, a room for the girls and a pull out sofa in the main room for my son. The kids loved the big screen tv/dvd player, hubby was glued to overstuffed leather sofa and I adored having a washer/dryer. The indoor Jacuzzi tub was also a huge hit with eveyone!
The Guest House was truly a great value…more fun and in the end more cost effective than a hotel! We will be back again, hopefully when it is warmer!

Owners response: Thanks Kim! I'm glad everything worked out so well. Hope to see you again soon!
