About Chip Krebs

Welcome to South Bend!

My wife and I are South Bend natives. We currently live on the south side and keep our home open to our friends and family as a destination for everything social. Our rental house is an extension of that hospitality. The property was designed for people visiting the South Bend area who are looking for the amenities and comforts of home while enjoying our great city.

Chip Krebs purchased this house in 2005

Why Chip Krebs chose South Bend

Kathleen and her five other siblings grew up in this neighborhood. Their childhood house is across the street and three houses down. Many of the neighbors her family grew up with are still living in this neighborhood, so there are a lot of good memories and old friends to talk to when we're there. It's a very safe and friendly neighborhood that's tucked away and rather private (xcept for ND Football games). It's so close to campus, that it's a perfect place to park and walk to the stadium, so there's a lot of fans flowing in and out of the neighborhood on Football Saturdays.

What makes this house unique

Location, Location, Location. The house is located 1/2 mile from the Notre Dame campus in a safe, quiet, private neighborhood and central to downtown South Bend and Mishawaka providing convenient access to everything fun, interesting and entertaining in our community!

This was the perfect place to stay for our ND/Navy game. No need for a car. It's just a short walk to the stadium. Very clean,comfortable and safe. We will definitely book this one again on our next visit.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

Chip's place is clean, comfortable, and well-appointed. My wife and I were in South Bend for an academic conference, and the house was a nice calm place to retreat to after a busy day. Highly recommended.
