Great house close to lake beach
We have been coming to Miller beach for many years. This house and location worked out the best for us. We loved the backyard with swings and TV in every room. Great location close to lake. We enjoyed dinners at outside patio and campfire at night.
The Blue Butterfly house is very nice. Lots of space and very clean. The house is one that you image would be sitting directly on the beach someplace that has been in someone’s family for decades. We really liked it. It is in an older neighborhood and the house next door is an awful site. But luckily you only see it coming and going. They also provided a lot of supplies like paper towels, toilet paper, shampoo, soaps etc. Over all we would recommend this house.
Great family getaway
The Blue Butterfly was everything we were looking for in a vacation rental. We had never vacationed with our dogs before so were a bit apprehensive about how it would work out. The house was perfect for us and our pets and I would recommend for anyone wanting a comfortable and clean environment to kick back and relax in. The beach we spent the most time at was close, mostly private and we we're lucky to have perfect weather for our 5 day stay. The house was also close to other attractions and we personally checked out the Lighthouse outlet mall and Xscape Quest escape room which were both in nearby Michigan City, Indiana. I would recommend both to anyone looking for entertainment nearby.
House plan is great and met our family needs. Just some minor issues.
The house plan/lay out was great and matched what was on the website. Outside had a lot of weeds. As a person who does not like weeds, found myself wanting to start pulling/cleaning up the outside. Also think there is poison ivy, sumac or some other poison vegetation out there as we had to keep telling the kids not to touch anything.
Per the pictures on the internet, thought the back yard was bigger. Brought a badminton set, as we though it would fit, not enough room. Swing set was great for the kids. There is a large hornet nest on the overhang above the deck, that was a concern as we hung out on the deck/back yard a lot. Do want to compliment: the place was fully stocked with toiletries, kitchen is stocked with pans/utensils, garage had extra charcoal, lighter fluid, beach items. The beach chairs were great. We are a family that brings a lot of this stuff with us. The website said you had everything, we still brought our own stuff but wouldn't have needed to,. As far as cleanliness, our biggest issue was that every time we would sweep the dinning area and kitchen there were always "hairballs". Not sure if they were human or animal. Also, the dinning chairs had hairballs on the bottom of the legs. We have pets and that is one thing I do when I clean is wipe off the bottom of the chair legs because hair accumulates there. There was no light bulb in the refrigerator. The outside door molding on the sliding glass door kept falling out of place and had to be manually pushed back in place. The kitchen sink is not attached to the counter top, the seal had previously been broken, and appears to be supported by the piping. The left side sink leaks between the seal and the tail pipe. This has been an obvious on going issue as the cupboard under the sink was wet and there is water damage in the cupboard and on the floor in front of the sink. After realizing this, we did not use the left side of the sink. We thought all this would have been caught by the cleaning crew.

Thank you for letting me know about these issues. I have addressed all of them within 24 hours of receiving this review. I always ask my guests to let me know if there are any issues or if there is anything I can do to make your stay more enjoyable. During peak season, we have about four hours to clean the house and prepare it for the next guests so it's imperative to get feedback as soon as possible so that I can schedule maintenance and take care of my guests if there are any inconveniences during their stay. I take safety and maintenance repairs very seriously and need to know about these things asap to ensure the home is in its best condition for guests. If you find something wrong, please let me know because I do not defer maintenance.
Property owner tries to have everything available for you that they can. Plenty of toys, games and beach gear. Close to beach, Michigan City and casino. House is clean and neat.
Everything you need!
This rental was more than I hoped for. A short walk to the beach, this house is well appointed and the outdoor space was so relaxing. The beds are so comfortable and the game room was great. Loved the keyless entrance allowing all of us to come and go as we pleased. Neighbors were nice too. A great little community and absolutely spectacular sunsets! Hiking is so close at West Beach. We had a delightful stay and thanks to the owners who always answered the phone and for sharing their wonderful home. Pack your swimsuit and toothbrush and head here.
