About The Owner

My name is Frank Julian. I am a local attorney with an office inside the neighborhood where this home is located. Prior to attending Notre Dame Law School, I served as an officer in the United States Navy.

The Owner purchased this house in 2014

Why The Owner chose South Bend

I bought this property because I know that this neighborhood is quiet, safe and the perfect location for Notre Dame events.

What makes this house unique

This home is perfect for two families (or one large family) to rent for any Notre Dame event. With two kitchens and two full bathrooms, it is ideally set up for entertaining.

All the Comforts of Home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this remarkably well appointed rental home in South Bend and we have it booked two more times this spring and summer. The owner, Frank, really knows how to make his guests comfortable. From leaving the lights on because he knew we were coming in late to the box of fresh donuts, snacks and wine he left for us on the table to the baskets of toiletries in each bedroom, Frank makes your stay in his home as comfortable and relaxed as possible. The home has everything you will need and sleeps at least 12-15 people comfortably. The outdoor fire pit and ample front porch allow guests to socialize and enjoy the outdoors, but there is plenty of comfortable seating inside as well. The addition of another 1/2 bath upstairs makes the home much more functional for big groups. The proximity to Notre Dame and Eddy Street is the best feature. It's only about a half mile to campus. I recommend this rental home without hesitation.

Frank has created the perfect house for a football weekend. Large (six bedrooms), spacious and clean, the house also features two kitchens, a gas grill and a backyard fire pit! We had eight adults visit and there was plenty of space (we plan to bring the kids next year!) - the two large flat screens insures sports 24 hours/day! House is close to campus - we walked everywhere after parking our cars in the driveway. Frank was easy to work with and gracious enough to provide refreshments and adult beverages upon our arrival. GREAT house even when the IRISH lose!

Fantastic family weekend!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family flew in for a ND football weekend and stayed at this great house ! There were 9 adults and 6 kiddos and iwe all had plenty of room! Frank, the owner, even bought groceries for us before we arrived which was wonderful to have since we arrived late in the evening. Two kitchens, two washers and dryers were fantastic and we sure enjoyed sitting around the fire pit in the evenings! Walking to ND was great-- no hassle about parking or getting through traffic. Loved our weekend just wish the Irish could have pulled it off! Great house and plan on staying here every time we're lucky enough to be in South Bend!!!

Great for Notre Dame family events

  • 5 of 5

Spectacular house for gathering family for an event at Notre Dame. Sleeps 10 comfortably with couches and air mattresses for another 3-4. Big enough to allow everyone private time and designed perfectly for indoor and outdoor groups. We had 50 in the yard and it was comfortable. Oir group ranged from 86 years old to 18 years old. Great owner. Takes care of every detail. Outstanding location (short walk to Linebacker, short 2 minute drive to campus, Martin's grocery, gasoline, liquor store etc). I'd rent it again. Price was reasonable.

Home Away From Home at ND

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Frank, has absolutely thought of everything to make your stay at his home in South Bend comfortable and fun. From the mouthwash to the hairspray - Frank's got you covered! He even left us a basket full of delicious local snacks and cinnamon rolls with two bottles of wine to welcome us! The pictures really do not do this home justice. It is a really large home with 6 comfortably appointed bedrooms - one King, four Queens and a huge bunk room with a full bottom bunk, single top, another full sized bed and a couch. The beds and linens were extremely comfortable and we got a great night's sleep the whole time we were there. Frank appointed the home with extra linens, blankets and even aero beds. Two of the other Queen bedrooms have couches in them which would be great for families with small children. I can easily see a family of 18-20 staying here comfortably! The home is perfect for family gatherings with the two kitchens and the huge backyard area with fire pit. Frank even has folding tables in the garage so that you could set up a buffet! Our family's favorite part was the outdoor fire pit area with comfortable outdoor pit group. We lounged out there and listened to music and talked for hours each evening while the fire pit was blazing. Frank even provided an unlimited supply of logs for our enjoyment. This place really lends itself to relaxing and enjoying the company and conversation of family and friends. This home would be so perfect for a Notre Dame game. I'm not in great shape, but I walked down to campus everyday while we were there and then walked all around campus with no problem. I wish we could come back and enjoy it this season, but our son has Friday night games and we have to fly in from Florida on Saturdays to visit ND games this year. We will definitely rent this place again from Frank in 2018!
