About Jim Pappas
An Engineer/Architect since 1995, my specialty and passion is designing, building, and managing luxury beachfront homes to accommodate very large families and groups to entertain, relax, and celebrate special occasions together.
Completed in 2009, the Miller Beach Dream Retreat and attached Guest House offer all the luxuries, premium fixtures, and custom amenities to truly have a spa-like experience. The layout and flow is functional with both large gathering spaces to entertain inside and out on a grand-scale as well as comfortable, cozy nooks for managed solitude.
I’ve been a commercial real estate investor since 2001 and have finally built a dream home for my family to call home. We always look forward to 'our private oasis on the beach” to escape from it all...
I truly hope you enjoy our home as much as we do. Please see www.MillerBeachDreamRetreat.com and call (773) 264-1000 to book your chosen dates. We fill up very fast, take credit cards, and are first come, first served.
Hope to see you soon!

Jim Pappas purchased this house in 2009
Why Jim Pappas chose Miller Beach
We chose Miller Beach, IN for several reasons. It is THE closest beach side community to Chicago (35 minutes by car or train, 60 minutes from O’hare Airport, 30 minutes from Midway Airport), is right on the Indiana Dunes National Park, and has the BEST “semi-private” sugar-sand beach!
Our backyard and beach IS the IN Dunes National Park!
Unlike most beachfront rentals that are crowded, noisy, and offer little or no privacy, Dream Retreat is built on a quiet, cul-de-sac street, corner lot, the only house on the corner, and 350 feet from the closest neighbor!.
Your views to the North and East are Lake Michigan, the Dunes, and the Chicago skyline. We installed 6’ and 8’ privacy fences to further isolate the outdoor living spaces and Pro-sand volleyball court from the street.
Just follow our trail to the sugar-sand beach and enjoy the 150ft sand bar and crystal clear, warm water. Our beach has no rocks, no muck, and no algae. Also, because we are the Southern-most tip of Lake Michigan, the water gets the warmest fastest and stays the warmest the longest--even well into Autumn.
The choice is obvious...
become “one with nature”, have no noisy neighbors, enjoy the ultimate in luxury and privacy, and be only 35 minutes from Chicago--one of the largest and most culturally diverse cities in the world!
What makes this house unique
No other beachfront vacation rental offers this level of privacy, beauty, and luxury. Our guest list is confidential, but includes A-list celebrities on-site during filming of major movies, professional sports stars, and noted journalists.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Met with a bunch of girls who all Scrapbook. That's what we did from Thursday until Sunday in Nov. 2011. Beautiful home, beautiful location, beautiful times!! Would I do again? In a heartbeat!! Oh and did I mention the hot tub. This would be a great place for a small family reunion or maybe a New Years Eve party. Very lovely--hoping to make plans to do it again.
