About the property

Huge 7 BR, 5.5 BA Home in family-focused resort community

NO PROM GROUPS. Irish Eyes is a spacious newer home in the award winning Beachwalk Resort community and the resort's largest and grandest home! Irish Eyes has 7 bedrooms, 5.5 baths (sleeps 20) and its Bailey’s Irish Cream coach house has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath (sleeps 5).

Rates include taxes and cleaning.

These two homes can be rented independently or together, depending on your needs. Together, they can sleep a total of 25 people, making them a great location for family reunions, weddings, football weekends, church or scrap booking groups or business retreats. Irish Eyes and Bailey’s offer your group a comfortable, spacious setting to relax and enjoy your time together.

Irish Eyes has a screened observation tower which overlooks the beautiful Beachwalk Resort community and its private Lake Kai. Cook and eat inside or cook outside on the gas grills with 2 picnic tables on the private deck or table for 6 on the screened porch.

The 1st floor fully equipped kitchen seats 20 and open to the huge 24’ x 27’ living room- perfect for scrap booking and group gatherings. The living room has a gas fireplace, 46' flat screen TV, couch, love seat and chaise lounge. The first floor also includes a screened porch off the living room, a sun room off the kitchen area and a handicapped accessible master bedroom suite with full bath–perfect for older folks.

The 2nd floor has 5 bedrooms including 2 additional masters with private baths, one with a king bed and baby crib, a queen bedroom, and two child friendly rooms with double bunk beds, so it is perfect for families traveling together.

The 3rd floor loft room is perfect for a family unit with a queen bed, twin bunks and a double futon.

The lower level is a gathering/sleeping area with two futons and a TV, perfect for the kids to bring their gaming systems and have their own private play area! The lower level also has a full bath and a laundry area with washer and dryer.

The optional Bailey's Irish Cream coach house has two bedrooms and a full bathroom. The main floor has a kitchen area and living space with a pull out sleeper sofa and private deck with table for 6.

Other home amenities include free WIFI, gas grills and wagons for transporting your beach toys or kids to the pool or beach.

HAVE A REALLY BIG GROUP? We also own Kathryn Rose (HomeAway #314355) which is only one vacant lot away and with its Rose Bud coach house, can sleep 24. Ask about our 4 house discount! Rent all four homes and you can house 49 people in comfort -- or rent each home or any combination that best suits your group--the perfect setting for your family reunion.

Our four homes are located in the award-winning Beachwalk Resort community where there are activities a plenty right outside your doorstep: tennis, basketball and volleyball courts, a heated pool and wading pool, a playground and park, putting green, snack shop and Lake Kai, a small private lake for swimming, fishing (no license required), and non-motorized watercraft use. In the summer, Beachwalk sponsors outdoor kid’s daytime activities and evening family movies. The homes are located next to a school which has a great play ground and wonderful sledding hill in the winter. Ice skating is also available on lake Kai-only 1 block away!

Also within easy walking distance is Beachwalk’s private entrance to the beautiful Lake Michigan Sheridan Beach where you can enjoy swimming, jet skiing, fishing, sailing and water skiing.

Other attractions in the area include Washington Park, the Zoo, the Blue Chip Gambling Casino, the Lighthouse shopping mall, 3 museums, winery tours and a host of fine restaurants. The Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and State Park boasts 8500 acres of lake shore, bogs, forests, and enormous sand dunes and is only minutes away. Activities there include swimming, fishing, hiking, picnicking, horseback riding and cross-country skiing.

Come join us in the off-season for a Notre Dame football weekend-only about 40 minutes from South Bend.

Women love coming for get-away weekends to shop at the Light House Mall or spend the weekend scrap booking!

Please note that Irish Eyes maintains a smoke-free and pet-free environment. Beachwalk is family-focused resort with nightly 10 pm Noise Curfew. WE DON'T RENT TO PROM GROUPS.

Why Carol or Jon Schroeder chose Indiana

Irish Eyes is ideally located in the center of the Beachwalk community, only one block from the community pool and away from the busy and noisy main Beachwalk lane thorough fare.

What makes this house unique

Parking is at a real premium in Beachwalk, but not at Irish Eyes which boasts parking for 7 Cars.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have been renting houses for family reunion many years and this is by far the best house and location. The responsiveness of owners to problems large and small can't be beat.

Large Group Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had a multi-family group attending festivities at Notre Dame. The facilities at Irish Eyes and Baileys were perfect. Plenty of space for the adults and kids to spread out. Ample bathrooms and parking spaces and of course the loft area was a huge hit with the kids! We can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Dear Moncrief family, We so appreciate your positive and detailed review! Happy to read that Irish Eyes and Baileys amenities and space made your stay relaxing and enjoyable -- especially the the third floor dorm bedroom with queen, bunk beds and two single beds which, yes, is a kids and teens favorite. We look forward to having you back -- we welcome guests year round! Jon and Carol Schroeder

Amazing experience - everything you need for fun!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a great option for those looking for a beautiful, large space. We stayed here with six other families and there was plenty of space for all, including parking spots for all seven families. The residence was very clean and the owners were very accommodating and responsive. We had a blast as the location couldn't be better for those that like activities including swimming, tennis, basketball to name a few.

AMAZING house on premier location within Beachwalk

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family and the absolute best location within the Beachwalk property. It was a very short walk to the beach and the pool. My kids absolutely loved the house and from the second we walked in they began exploring all the different areas of the house including the cupola and all the rooms with bunk beds! The screened-in porch is perfect for late afternoon card game or casual dinner. We LOVED this house for our family get-away and will definitely be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for providing your comments on Irish Eyes & Baileys! We are happy to know that your stay was relaxing and met your family's needs! Our location is convenient to the beach and heated pool. It's wonderful to read you enjoyed so many of the home's amenities: screened porch, the third floor screened in towel for views of Beachwalk, and the variety of beds (king, queens, bunk beds, single beds). We look forward to your family coming back again -- thank you! Carol and Jon Schroeder

Amazing stay for a family reunion

  • 5 of 5

A group of us rented Irish Eyes for a pre-Easter family gathering and it was perfect! The gathering spaces are plentiful and HUGE!!!! The adults hung out in the family room and kitchen and the kids had the lower two levels for their game playing! The bedroom configurations are perfect with most having private baths. The house goes on and on.....it is much larger than it looks in the photos. The house was perfectly stocked and we loved having two refrigerators!

Carol was very responsive and promptly answered all of our questions!

I highly, highly, highly recommend staying here!
