South Bend townhome description

This brand-new, 3,000 square foot townhouse is the perfect entertaining venue for out-of-town guests. The townhouse is decorated in an 'elegant western' theme with a Notre Dame themed basement.

The townhouse is located across the street from the University and is literally a 10 minute walk to the stadium. The immediate area around the townhouse offers several restaurants, Martin's Grocery Store, Starbucks, and a Hollywood Video.

There are four bedrooms - two rooms with king beds, a third room with two sets of bunkbeds (the bottom beds are doubles), and the fourth room has a set of bunkbends (the bottom bunk is a double) and a queen bed. There is a lot of sleeping space.

While I have listed this property as not suitable for kids, let me just say that kids are welcome but there are no child safety locks on any cabinets and renter would be responsible for any damage to the townhouse.

Keywords: Brand new, across the street from Notre Dame campus, condo, rental, townhouse, elegant. 3,000 square feet of finished space.

                            My friends and I rented this unit from Brigid for a reunion weekend in Feb 2014. The place is amazing and the pictures do not do it justice. It is a new townhouse in a small gated community that is right on the edge of campus. You can see the stadium from the front deck. Although we did not stay there during the football season, this would be a perfect place to enjoy a home game. It is also perfect for reunions, graduation or other family type weekends in south bend. The place would sleep 10 comfortably in my opinion and has plenty of space for people to hang out on each level of the townhouse (including full entertainment centers in both the basement and on the 2nd floor). The kitchen is great and the kitchen table area would seat ten as well if you wanted to have a full meal. There are multiple decks, a grill, 2 car garage, etc. She even had supplies for us (beer, water) and nice welcome basket with wine and other treats waiting for us when we arrived. It feels like home (or better than home) staying there and I would definitely come back for future trips. Brigid was also very easy to deal with and extremely responsive over both email and text. She offered to return the deposit a couple days after the stay (once the cleaners had been through the property) but I elected to put it towards a future football weekend there. Can't wait to come back!

                            We stayed here at the recommendation of another bride who used the place for her home base during her Notre Dame wedding. So we did the same. We are SO glad we did! With being from out of state, we didn't know where to stay and wanted an actual Home rather than a hotel. We had plenty of room to accommodate us (the parents of the bride), the bride and her five attendants. We had room for more but didn't want to make the days any more hectic than necessary. We stayed a few days before the wedding and it was convenient to all our appointments with wedding vendors and the campus. I was pleased with how close to the campus the townhouse was located. The house was spectacular! I really cannot emphasize this enough. Everyone who came over to visit was impressed. Having the washer and dryer on site was very handy. There were plenty of bathrooms even with seven females putting on makeup and needing sinks at the same time. After the wedding reception (ended at 4pm) we had a few friends over and the great room was perfect for entertaining with lots of seating and the bar area to set out the food and a fridge up there (second floor) for drinks too. The owner, Brigid, was very nice, helpful and accommodating from start to finish!!!! This was the first time we ever did a VRBO so I didn't know what to expect. She certainly set the bar high for the next place we may rent someday. Thank you so very much for opening this beautiful home for us to use during one of the most important weeks of our lives!

I think your review will help others who are considering renting our townhouse sight-unseen! I know that can be very difficult! Come visit us again! :)

                            I rented this beautiful town home for my daughter's wedding weekend. Since everyone was travelling to South Bend for the wedding, it provided an excellent home away from home where we were able to complete our last minute tasks in comfort as opposed to cramped hotel rooms. Right off the Notre Dame campus, it was conveniently located to everything we had planned. Once we all arrived, our daughter instantly relaxed because of the homey feel of the town house and having all the family in one place. It was clean, fully furnished and stocked with all the essentials. Every time I went looking for some random thing (like a piece of tape), I found what I was looking for. There were plenty of places to gather in small groups or larger ones and the sleeping accommodations were exactly as described. Brigid, the owner, was very easy to work with and she was very responsive to all our needs. I highly recommend this home for rental for ANY Notre Dame/South Bend trip! It was worth every penny!

                            Owner response: So happy you were all pleased with the accommodations! More importantly, so glad the wedding weekend was a success! Saw some of the pictures on-line and your daughter looked gorgeous and happy! Please visit us again!

                            I rented this townhouse for a girls' weekend/ND reunion in May of 2012. While the decor is a little more masculine, the girls were extremely impressed and happy with everything. The owner is incredibly easy to work with and very accommodating. The location is great - literally a few minutes walk from the edge of campus. There was more than enough room and the number of bathrooms were a huge bonus for a group of ladies. Everything looked new, incredibly clean, and very well-stocked with anything you would need. I was so happy with this rental, I am using it again this May with families for a wedding.

                            Brigid & Tim Just a note to let you know what a wonderful time we had this weekend at your home in South Bend. As a previous guest had commented , the pictures do not do your home justice. The townhouse is just so tasteful and very elegant. The rooms are spacious and the beds were so comfortable. There was plenty of room for all 11 guests. All of the family and friends with us could not stop talking about your home. We all loved the convenience to campus , the toll road, and all of the stores nearby. When you asked in your email to suggest any improvements I couldn't think of one. We all hope to make this ND football weekend an annual event and we hope your home is available. Thank you again for sharing your lovely home - Carol

                            Owner response: Thanks so much for your kind words, Carol! We are glad your whole family enjoyed the weekend. Your group is a great example of who will enjoy our townhouse- several branches of the family tree together under one roof for lots of "hanging out" time! We would, of course, love to have you back again!

                            Our family rented this townhome for the week leading up to our daughter's wedding at Notre Dame. We wanted a place where we could all be together and also have space to relax and host friends and family as they arrived for the wedding. What an extra special treat awaited us when we arrived. The townhome is magnificent and immaculate and luxurious, and it was the perfect place for the week's activities! It is gorgeous in decor and ample in every way. Everything we needed (and more) was provided. To be able to spend time together in a home, rather than a hotel, was a wonderful blessing. We had a place to relax and be together, a place to finish the last-minute wedding details, and a place to entertain. It also made for a perfect setting for the pre-wedding photos of the bride and her bridesmaids. The photographer noted that she rarely has had such a lovely setting for the "at-home" photos. The proximity to campus was a significant benefit every day, as was the short time to the grocery store and Eddy St. Commons. After the Saturday morning wedding and on-campus reception, we hosted an intimate gathering of about 30 people to continue the celebration. The bride and groom said that other than the marriage itself, this time to relax and celebrate with family was their favorite memory of the day. The owner is exceptionally friendly and helpful and provides reliable, straightforward information, which made our planning quite easy. We had eight people staying in the home, though several more could be easily accommodated. We have very fond memories of our first visit to this townhome, and we hope to return as often as we can in the years to come. Perfect Bliss!!

                            Owner response: Carol - We couldn't be happier to hear how special your daughter's wedding week was at the townhouse. If we had any small influence on that happy event, we're so glad! We have tried very hard to set up the house to easily accommodate family gatherings. We look forward to your family's return for commencement 2014!

                            Our graduation celebration at this lovely townhome was wonderful. Truly, it was a 5-star experience!! Our daughter, graduated from Notre Dame Law School this past May and over a year ago, I started searching for a property that would accommodate 12-15 people including two 80-something grandmothers. Having never booked a property on the VRBO site, I was a bit hesitant. But the townhome owner was exceptional. She was so organized, helpful, and easy to work with. She even provided restaurant suggestions and mailed other South Bend information. She totally went beyond the call of duty! The townhome itself was immaculate and beautifully decorated. It looked ready for an Architectural Digest photo shoot, yet it was very comfortable and spacious. With all of the generations in attendance, one activity we particularly enjoyed was putting together a 1000-piece Notre Dame puzzle on the fabulous dining room table. It turned out to be a lot of fun. In addition, it was extra nice to be within walking distance of campus. We were literally a minute's drive from my daughter's law school apartment (Fischer Graduate Apartments) on campus! I could go on and on. You will just have to reserve it and see for yourself how perfect it is. My only suggestion---book it early. We had the best time ever!! Thank you very much!

                            We rented this beautiful townhome with several other parents to share for JPW weekend. The house was immaculate and had absolutely everything we needed to host a gathering of juniors and their parents. They even stocked toiletries. Bedrooms (each with its own bathroom) were nicely spread out so that we were not on top of each other. The location was just across the street from the athletic complexes of ND providing an easy walk to main campus, as well. Groceries stores (Martins) and restaurants are minutes away. Our stay was so enjoyable, we all booked this home together again for Graduation 2013. Beats the dingy hotel rooms around SB and feels like home away from home. If you have a group gathering for a game weekend, JPW or Graduation in the future (or any other gathering)...I highly recommend this place!! We contacted the owners via internet information on this listing. We have had no previous experience with the owners and found them to be a pleasure to work with, making everything very simple. They were quick to respond throughout the process. Awesome place and great memories!

                            We (10 people) rented the townhouse over the Labor Day weekend for the USF/ND game and were thrilled with the location, spaciousness and decor. I will have to say that the photos shown do not do it justice. In addition, the kitchen/baths were very well stocked and the owners were great to work with. If ever in the area, we would definitely rent here again!

If there is damage to the property beyond what would be reasonable, the repairs will be taken out of the deposit and the balance returned to the renter.

                          Payments made by personal check directly to owner. Credit cards not accepted at this time.


                          Always make sure to call the number on the listing to confirm payment details.
                          Only pay using credit card, PayPal, check or direct bank transfer. NEVER pay by cash or instant money transfer services such as Western Union or MoneyGram. Learn more

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: My husband attended UND and I attended SMC. I grew up in South Bend as did my husband's father. Both because of family ties and ties to the University, South Bend will always be a destination for us. As soon as we saw the location of this townhouse, we knew we were going to be happy. Because of our kids' activities, we cannot make it to most home football games and decided to look into renting our townhouse when we cannot be there.

                          Why the Owner Chose South Bend:
                          I am from South Bend and attended SMC, My husband attended UND. South Bend will always be a destination for us. We finally decided to buy this townhouse based on location, location, location!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                          When we have used the townhouse, we enjoy the proximity to the campus. We walk across the street and we are on the campus. We can walk easily to the ACC or the stadium for events. We have also enjoyed walking around the lake on campus or heading to the bookstore.
