                            We had 10 adults and 10 children on this vacation. Irish Eyes is amazingly clean and well cared for. The rooms were great -- each family had a place of their own. Location was perfect -- at the end of the street and right next to a school playground. Used the heated pool and took several trips to Sheridan Beach -- so beautiful! The community was quiet and peaceful -- we enjoyed just walking the streets. Visited the zoo, the lighthouse and Washington Park. Wish we could have stayed another week! Wonderful, relaxing family vacation spot. This was our first time renting a vacation home and Jon and Carol made the process very easy and uncomplicated. We plan to stay at Irish Eyes again!

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, families with teenagers, families with young children, girls getaway, adventure seekers.

                            Owner response: Kathy, Thanks much for your feedback on Irish Eyes! Jon and I are happy that you enjoyed our vacation home as well as the many amenities in Beachwalk, Sheridan Beach and nearby family activities. We're glad to hear our reservation process met your needs - we do our best to reply to requests the same day with emailed floor plans and a detailed Welcome Letter of what we provide our guests. We look forward to having your family back! Carol Schroeder

                            We are so glad we found this place. We've been coming to Michigan City for 6 years for an annual cousin's weekend and this was by far the best place we stayed at. It was new, with 9 private bedrooms (Irish Eyes & Bailey's) and everything was just in great shape. We will be back again next year for sure! Working with John & Carol was so easy! We give this place an A++!

                            Our Irish mother turned 80 on Ocotober 14, 2012. We asked her what she wanted to do to celebrate, and her response was to have her children and grandchildren together in Michigan City. When we saw Irish Eyes, we knew this was where we needed to be. The age span was from 2 years to 80 years old and we could not have found better accomodations. There is a main floor bedroom which has a bathroom which is handicap accessible. It was perfect for our mother. We had planned on eating out some of our meals, but the kitchen was so well equipped that we had a blast cooking all of our meals at Irish Eyes! We even baked and decorated the birthday cake there. The dining room table was great for meals as well as being utilized as a game table for all of us. There was even a high chair for our two year old grandson. There are two gas grills that definitely got a work-out. There was plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms so we didn't feel we were on top of each other. We used the separate game room and played several of the board games that were available. Another unique feature of Irish Eyes is the Crow's Nest. We loved this vantage point to watch a storm come in as well as to view the beautiful community. The proximity to the lake and beach was wonderful as we took advantage of early morning and sunset walks as well as the short drive to the Notre Dame campus. Our mother said at the end of our stay, that it was her best vacation and best birthday ever!!! Thank you to Jon and Carol for helping us to create such a lasting memory for our family.

                            Just a promised, the house is a wonderful get-away! Owners Carol and Jon made the stay comfortable. Timely responses to email and phone calls, on-site help with a tripped breaker and an abundant supplies made for a great family vacation. Clean and well maintained. Plenty of room to gather and plenty of room for privacy. The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking and baking utensils, we had very little need to eat out and enjoyed lots of family time around the table for 12. Home offers Wi-Fi and a television in each bedroom, for those who simply can't unplug for too long. Neighborhood noise ordinance effective at 10 pm each night makes for peaceful sleeping with the lake breeze cooling the bedrooms. The neighborhood is geared for kids. Places to play, swim, fish and streets and trails for walking. Great access to the beautiful public beach on Lake Michigan, unless you are afraid of a little walking. :) We enjoyed touring Barker Mansion in town for an inexpensive history lesson. Al's grocery is convenient and Meijer or Walmart are only a few miles if you need more than food items. Want some time in the big city? Take a train from the Carroll Ave station to Chicago, just about 3 miles away. The fare is about $9.00 each way and there are multiple departure times daily. There is also a local zoo, small water park and Indiana Dunes for more family activities. We hope to be back next Summer!

                            We have been delighted to spend a week of vacation over the last two years at "Irish Eyes." We gad plenty of room for all 22 of us and enjoyed all the nearby amenities like the beach, pool and playground. The community is beautiful and peaceful. We look forward to going back next year.

                          Why the Owner Chose Michigan City:
                          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.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Parking is at a real premium in Beachwalk, but not at Irish Eyes which boasts parking for 7 Cars.
