For the last 10 years Mike has also spent much of his spare time helping people with housing issues through a non-profit organization, Love Knows No Bounds.

Perfect place with plenty of space for my young family of 5!

  • 5 of 5

The place was very clean, organized, and perfect for what we needed. It is a great property just south of IC and really easy to get in and out of town. We’d love to return someday! Thanks!

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Huge apartment, the entire basement of the house. Bed is super comfortable. Use of a pool! Nice owners. Someone noted lack of bedroom plugs. There is a power strip next to the bed, so not an issue any more. The only thing to note is that this is a daylight basement, and there is a damp smell. Humidifiers are running, but the smell is definitely there. We were not bothered, but this could be an issue for some.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us, and taking the time to write a review as well. It was a pleasure having you here. We always welcome feedback on how to improve our guest space, and wanted to note that we are installing an A/C unit to further decrease the humidity. We also think the smell may have been more noticeable because a plumber had been clearing a grease clog in the guest space and flooded the floor under the sink. It took a little time to dry properly, but seems to have abated now. Our apologies!

Ellis Haven Rocks!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this apt. for my elderly mom and my brother each of whom have their own physical challenges. Sherri could not have been more gracious. My mom (who had never stayed at a Homeaway property) loved meeting Sherri and truly appreciated the accommodations.
