About Sheilah O'Shea

Investor in Chicago & surrounding areas for the past 10 years. I choose places that I personally stay and enjoy with family and friend's!

Sheilah O'Shea purchased this house in 2014

Why Sheilah O'Shea chose Southwest

I always wanted a getaway from the city in a quaint beach town that I could walk everywhere and enjoy the beach life...and this is my little gem.

What makes this house unique

I covet the open floor plan so everyone can be part of everything no matter if you are prepping dinner, playing board games at the dining room table or relaxing in the family room. Backyard has ample space for socializing and activities for all ages.

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in New Buffalo and loved this house. It had everything we needed to feel at home, and is tastefully and comfortably decorated. Location is wonderful - we walked to lunch, to the beach, to Oink's for ice cream. Backyard was the thing we enjoyed most. Lots of space for our daughter to play - she loved the playset! Every night we ate out on the deck and sat around the fire pit. This house would is perfect for families, but would also be wonderful for a getaway weekend with friends. We loved it and hope we can return next year!

Really enjoyed our trip and loved this cottage!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at the Rustic Refined Cottage. It was so convenient and helpful that Sheilah provided so many nice extras like the laundry detergent, kitchen items, beach towels and even a beach bag (which I loved)! The furniture was so comfortable and nice and the beautiful dining table worked so well for our family with all our 3 boys (7, 3 & 3) being able to sit on the benches for meal times. My husband and I ended up sleeping on the pull-out sofa bed and found it to be extremely comfortable for that type of bed. We especially enjoyed the games with our 7 year old and all our boys loved the toys and DVDs - such a nice touch! Sheilah really thought of everything! We really were quit pleased! ~Nichole M.

It was an awesome location! Walking distance from Downtown; adorable and well kept!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend! The home was very clean and well taken care of. The main living space was perfect for us, and we definitely enjoyed the outside space as well. The owner was quick to respond to my question upon arrival, and we had no issues throughout our stay. I would recommend for future renters to bring additional paper products as the house was not stocked with much TP, paper towels as well as dish soap, etc. Would definitely recommend to others!

Owner's Response: It's standard to have a 'starter set' for paper products. This was also outlined in the informational packet provided a month before arrival for planning purposes.

Fabulous Family Fun

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd stay at Rustic Refined. I can say my kids think this house is our home away from home. It has everything you need, and a lot more! From the updated inside to the wonderful backyard. My kids are 3 and 6, both slept in the bunk beds for the 1st time, and though it was such a treat. We had one morning of rain and went to the local library, which has an amazing kids area. Thank you to the owner for allowing us in your home, and sharing so many great recommendations.
