About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

If you are looking for the perfect home to spend a Notre Dame home football game weekend, then here it is. Just seven miles from the golden dome and Notre Dame stadium lies this four bedroom, two and a half bathroom home. The neighborhood is minutes from many local restaurants, shops, and bars. Also, if you enjoy the cozy atmosphere of a local brewery, Bare Hands Brewery is just a three minute drive away, and is arguably the best beer in the state. The Indiana toll road, exit 83, is five minutes from the house, making the drive to Notre Dame just 15 minutes. With over 2,500 square feet of livable space (including a finished basement), this house can accommodate a large number of family and friends. Each of the four bedrooms have a bed (Master - King, 1st guest - Queen, 2nd guest - 3/4, 3rd guest - Full). If you include the futon in the basement, large sectional in the family room, and leather couch in the living room, the home can sleep up to 12. There is a large, fenced in back yard with a patio and gas grill. Don't worry if you forgot something at home, we provide everything you would need including towels, linens, toiletries, coffee, and gas for the grill. The kitchen is fully stocked and appliances are brand new. The home has high-speed wireless internet. The dining room boasts a hand-made table that seats ten, comfortably. Additionally, the kitchen seats seven.

About Property Manager/Owner

My wife and I moved to this home in 2014 shortly after our daughter was born. We love everything about this house and have put in so much work to making it our own. When we first saw the house and the neighborhood, it was love at first sight. We grew up in the area and can provide local recommendations on just about anything for our visitors. From where to eat, where to shop, and where to find free parking on game days. Just ask!

We had a wonderful experience in this home. Owner, Derek, was very easy to work with. The house was perfect for our family.

The house was just as described, clean and welcoming. I would recommend this house to friends and family.

Great house, clean, modern and in a great neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Every year for the past 8 years, my friends and I have travelled from Los Angeles to South Bend for a Notre Dame football game. The group has grown to about 7 guys and hotel rooms are no longer worth it. The cost of hotel rooms on football game weekends is ridiculous and it was a much better option to just rent a house this year. The photos of this home caught my eye and I immediately put a deposit down.


- The house was clean, although a person who slept on the couch said you could tell a cat or dog lived there. - The neighborhood was very well maintained and safe.

- The bedrooms, sheets, showers, toilets were all clean.

- Most major toiletries were provided (shampoo, body wash, etc).


- It is a little bit of a trek to Notre Dame from here. Uber will run you about $13-$15 to campus during normal times and around $60-$75 one-way on Saturdays. You're looking at about a 15-20 minute drive.

- The coffee maker didn't seem to work correctly -- we couldn't get it to brew a pot correctly. It would sit and steam for an hour but never really yield any coffee.

- There's no cable, only streaming services (Sling, etc). We were worried about missing playoff baseball and NFL football, but we were able to make it work between the local channels they receive and the Sling.

I think the key is to rent a car, and it's probably what we'll do next year. Having to Uber to/from this location to Downtown South Bend, Notre Dame or Eddy Street can get really expensive. When you're splitting fairs it's not a huge issue but for others it might be. Having a car would have opened more possibilities and allowed us to take advantage of the house rental more (cooking meals, less fast food, etc).

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5

I came out with 8 friends and family members for a Notre Dame football game and was extremely happy and comfortable with the house. It was very convenient and comfortably slept all of us. I would recommend this house to anyone coming out for an ND game or that needs to rent a house in the South Bend area. In addition, the owner was very accessible, accommodating and quick to respond to any questions I had. Great house!

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed for a weekend stay in Indiana. The home looks just like the pictures and was very well kept. Plenty of extras and for us all of the baby toys and pack n play were so convenient to have for our one year old. The neighborhood felt very safe and was really quiet and lovely. Very close to restaurants, grocery stores and other necessities. All of our questions were answered in a timely manner. We highly recommend this home to anyone thinking of visiting the area.

The house and yard were just has shown in the VRBO offering. Very comfortable and clean.

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely wonderful. The location worked well for our purposes. It is close to a major grocery store that has a Starbucks, fantastic bakery and deli. There are several locally owned restaurants nearby that are within walking distance. The owners were easy to work with and very quick to respond to any communications sent to them throughout the whole process. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen refrigerator was completely emptied for us, which was very convenient. Wifi was available and easy to access. The house is located in a quiet little housing division that you could walk around or ride a bike in. The yards and other homes are well maintained and very nice. Just the normal goings on with the neighbors, no loud parties. We absolutely recommend this property!!!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Our family and extended family members stayed here during our nephew's Notre Dame graduation weekend. It is a lovely, spacious home with plenty of room for a group and it was just a short drive to the campus. We were even able to have the graduation dinner there. The kitchen is great and the large dining room accommodated our group for dinner and games afterward. The hosts were very accommodating. It's obvious that the family has put a lot of love into this beautiful and immaculate home. The only concern was that some family members are allergic to cats and had some allergic reactions even though the cat wasn't there. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. It was a wonderful weekend for our family.
