Perfect for large gatherings

  • 5 of 5

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.

excellent home for families!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both homes for my mother's 90th birthday reunion and loved the spaciousness of the homes and all the decks that were available for people to use. My mother kept mentioning how pretty everything looked and there was plenty of room for all of us to gather in one large bunch, or to be in smaller groups. The best thing about this rental, however, is the service that Mike and Kate provided to us. They were very flexible to our particular needs and Mike came over to take care of a few issues as soon as we let him know of them. Their very responsive and friendly service is a huge plus when working with a lot of strong personalities! (i.e. my family!) We would definitely rent from them again.

Fabulous Vacation Homes

  • 5 of 5

We rented both homes for a family vacation with our grown children, their spouses and our grandkids and had an absolutely fantastic week! The community of Beachwalk is very charming...colorful 3 story homes, very walkable, a small lake for fishing, kayaking, etc., a community pool, a small cafe and more. This home is a very short walk to a beautiful stretch of beach on Lake Michigan. Both homes are outstanding! Everything you would ever need is available, including a kids wagon to go back and forth to the beach and the pool. We enjoyed both the screened in porch and the open air porch every single day! We loved the fact that the kitchen was large enough to seat our whole family for meals and games. We used the second table in the kitchen to do a 1000 piece puzzle. There is a ping pong table in the basement that we used for a family ping pong tournament. The HouseofKells is very spacious and allowed for family members to spread out and have their own rooms and space for all sorts of activities. The CelticKnot was perfect for our son and daughter-in-law who have two very small children. They were able to put the babies down for a nap & early to bed without interruption from the rest of us. The two homes are connected, which made it very easy for them to go back and forth between homes. Kate was fabulous and was very quick to answer my questions before our stay. She was very easy to work with and very accessible. We LOVED our stay and would highly recommend it!

Wonderful House - Great for a Group

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house to have a gathering place for my mother's 90th birthday... It was perfect! House is beautiful. Tastefully decorated, spotless, and well stocked. We had 15 people staying at the house for the weekend and a birthday party with about 50 attending. The families enjoyed the beach, playground and everyone enjoyed the many decks and porches. Kate was wonderful to work with getting everything arranged and the house was the perfect place for our celebration. Would recommend this property without hesitation - deserves more than 5 stars...

Warm, cozy home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I've been to House of Kells 6 times in 7 years. It's beautiful on the outside with fantastic views of Beachwalk. The uniqueness of the layout makes it perfect for group gatherings. It's a 2 minnie walk to lake Michigan where you have private use of the the lake and beach.

The inside of the house feels like home. The quilts on the bed, the kitchen has everything you need, all of the rooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated.
