We live a few doors from the home so we are always available. Owner designed and built the home for a vacation get away for multiple families and/or reunions, retreats....

Kate purchased this house in 2007

The Houseofkells and the Celticknot are very close to the wooden beackwalk to Sheridan Beach. The house is very flowing and yet has many private areas.

Imagine yourself on the swing on the front porch or in the hammock on the deck in the Coach house.

Perfect for large gatherings

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 22, 2009
  • Stayed: Dec 2008
This home is perfect for a multi-generational family gathering. The house is very well-equipped. We cooked a full Christmas dinner here and had everything we needed in the kitchen. The decor is light and neutral, with everything in great shape. Lots of pillows, blankets and towels were available. You must cross the street to get to the beach, but there is a lovely boardwalk to the beach, it's extremely close, and the beach itself is flawless. There is a ping-pong table in the basement, but otherwise bring your own cards/games. Decent grocery shopping within a few miles (nothing w/in walking distance). A lovely park about a mile away is fun for the kids. Large, beautiful play structure 1/2 a block away. Owner very responsive and easy to get in touch with for pre-trip questions.

Wonderful Weekend!

We absolutely loved and enjoyed our stay at House of Kells. It was the prefect location for our fall women's weekend away. Great location for running, walking, near the outlets for shopping, and even close to a great Mexican restaurant...La Hacienda. We all enjoyed the large gathering area, the smaller sitting areas, and the well equipped kitchen. Thanks for a great weekend!!!

Best Family Rental Ever!

I did not want to allow too much time to pass without letting you know that my family thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at Houseofkells!

My husband and I really set the bar high when we chose your property; so much so that the next family member who selects the 2013 vacation spot has big shoes to fill! What put our selection of Houseofkells over and above all other homes we've stayed previously was the proximity to the beach, zoo etc., and the home's spacious layout and the Beach-walk community in general. The neighbors were very friendly, and we even took advantage of the bike rental. The only thing that would have made it better would have been to book it for one more week!

What a great property and the experience for the entire family!

All the best!

Great Place, Well Done

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 4, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
It is hard to define the small details that make a weekend in a rental enjoyable. This place seemed to have the fine details down. Simple things like LOTS of forks and spoons, to plenty of glasses. With 20 people in a house there was plenty of space for 9 kids and 11 adults. I would HIGHLY recommend this property to ANY prospective renters. Location was GREAT, very close to the beach. The only MINOR issue is the VERY steep driveway. Most homes in the area seem to have the same or similar issue. We have a long minivan and it could not go down the driveway or into the garage. Any SUV or short car should be no problem, but the long car would bottom out.
Owner's Response: Thank you.

More than Expected!

What a wonderful home for a large family reunion, and yes it was like being home. Everything we needed and more than what we expected! We were six families - all ages - senior citizens, adults, teens, a child and a baby! The layout of the house was great. We were able to eat together as a family every night. And yes, you could also find a place for quite time. The house was in excellent condition, well maintained and well stocked. It was a short walk to the community pool or to Lake Michigan. The train in town took us to Chicago without the hassle of driving. The owners were easy to contact and responded quickly. I would highly recommend this home.
