About Donna Kavanagh
I am a local media person who travels quite a bit. I love animals, children and seniors! I want the 'Avondale Estate' to be as fun and comfortable a getaway for all ages, as it has been for me ! NO CRABS OR SNOBS allowed, just fun seekers, please ... lol ... Come chill at the seasons are lovely here !
Donna Kavanagh purchased this House in 1961
Why Donna Kavanagh chose Long Beach
The 'Avondale Estate' is located only 50 yards or 1/2 blk from the beach, but is set back far enough that you don't hear the action. It is a large, lovely home with 'fun' built in. The property is lovely too! NOTRE DAME FOOTBALL season is 30 minutes from South then home to the beach ! Purdue is only 45 minutes away....
What makes this House unique

We are kid, senior and disability friendly (ramp available) NOTRE DAME is 30 minutes away PURDUE, only 1 hour ! Skiing in the winter is very near in neighboring Michigan. Great family reunion house!

This is a beautiful home, gigantic, colorful, and much room for you. A great living room, vaulted ceiling, privacy everywhere. Steps away from the beach, oh did I say this was a great home? The restaurants and shopping were not far away and the big raised deck was a bonus. My family was here for a Mother's Day gathering and we cannot wait to do it again next year! Great place to stay!
DO STAY AT OUR HOUSE ! and thank you to Brian and his family from Chicago for this glowing review.....we are happy to accommodate everyone, their children, their pets.....their
mother-in-laws lol....come stay here with us !
Stay away from this property!
My wife and I have rented for the past ten years in The Long Beach area and this house is by far the worst place we have ever stayed! The ad says three bedrooms, in reality there are 2 bedrooms with a pull out couch on a porch that leads to the deck. The kitchen sink was being held in place with Notre Dame tape! The water pressure in the bathroom was so low it was hard to take a shower or even brush your teeth! There were no hangers to hang your clothes in the make shift closets. There was a junk van in the driveway behind the house. The furniture was covered with throws and blankets. The couches had cat scratches on the arms. The carpet was stained and smelled. I went and bought 4 air fresheners just to survive the smell. We rented for a week but only stayed in the house for 3 nights, that was how bad it is! The sliding door to the deck didn't close properly. The blinds in the kitchen and bedrooms were filthy and bent. If you noticed in the ad that only 3 pictures out of 19 were of the inside, I wonder why? I made the mistake of not driving there to see the place before renting because the owner said they were "renovating". If interested in this house make sure you look at it first!!! Unless the owner does extensive updates I cannot recommend this house to anyone!
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL MY MANY HAPPY RENTERS WHO HAVE STAYED WITH US AND LOVED OUR HOUSE....however...THIS renter was the 'GRINCH' !....they only stayed in our house for a few days (yet they write this review almost 6 months later....really! )
The REAL reason they left, is because they got a 'FREE RIDE' from someone they knew, who let them stay with them, for free. .....
They never once contacted me about any of these TOTALLY FALSE, EXAGGERATED AND OUTRAGEOUS COMPLAINTS THAT ARE NOT TRUE....
I am an 'onsight owner' and always happy to talk to you.
They left without even a word to me, but that was before they had a BIG PARTY AT MY house breaking all the rules ....I guess if they were so upset...why did they invite people over to 'party'.
My house is a BEAUTIFUL, OPEN, CLEAN AND LOVELY BEACH HOUSE, built by a Chicago Alderman who founded the Chicago Skyway our link to Chicago.
I always say...if you have any questions...just call me..
If you come to my house in 2014, I guarantee you will have a lovely experience (however 'Grinches' not welcome LOL )
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY HEALTHY Welcome to you all in 2014
Come stay with us and join the hundreds of families who have had
a lovely time at the AVONDALE ESTATE Peace
Thank you for the memories
I had visited Long Beach a few summers in the 1970s and am so glad that you let me stay at the home we summered in back then. This is truly a LB classic and beauty. There was time when everyone envied us there. It is restored to grandeur and yet a comfortable beach home.
I found my days back at the beach to rejuvenating and restful, but at the same time the sun tan and sunset walks on the beach will never be forgotten.
This is great home at a great location near the beach and oh yeah, I loved finding the beach glass on my walks.
Thank you once again for renting me this home at the bottom of Silvertip Hill and at the Top of World in the Hoosier State. There is an ocean called "Lake Michigan"!!!!! Donald
Thank you for the lovely review.....I am looking forward to 2014
we have a great house in a great spot 1/2 block from Lake Michigan
Blessings and happy travel in the New Year !
Experienced the 4th of July in Long Beach, IN
I had always heard about the beach, the parade, the 5 k run through the neighborhoods, but this year I had the opportunity to sit on first fairway of the Long Beach Country Club and watch fireworks that were simply amazing. My stay was very very fun and pleasant, and the beach and people were amazing.
I checked in and the week went so fast, I am looking forward to staying here again next year. I saw it was open this week and only wish I could get off work this week. The weather is glorious this time of year. I recommend taking a step back in time to when life was simple. I live and work in air conditioned buildings and this home was amazing and clean with new paint and very livable.
Thank you VBRO for your service. Owning a summer home is out of my budget, but for the price of some other trip, I can step off the treadmill, and stay in height of luxury and pretend that I, too, own a second home along Lake Michigan. :)
Within 50 yards of a beautiful Lake Michigan beach!
