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 New Buffalo

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.

Well-stocked and clean

  • 5 of 5

This was the most well-stocked kitchen and linen closet at any VRBO we have ever had. It was so clean, well-cared for. Our family enjoyed the backyard a ton. Is not a huge house, is great for up to 5 people but can’t imagine fitting more. Would go back in a heartbeat.

Great location and well maintained

We love the location as it is a quick walk to the marina and town. The home is extremely well maintained and the owner is kind, fair and clear with her expectations pertaining to check out. We look forward to returning next year!

Fantastic, well appointed cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! Sheila was super responsive and the place was immaculate. It’s perfect for a small family- very well thought out with every convenience in mind. The only annoyance was the noise from the nearby siren when there was a storm but otherwise everything was perfect. Walking distance to downtown and quite airy and lovely. Highly recommend!

Loved this property. Was clean, decorated nicely, and had a great back yard. We enjoyed using the grill one night and loved it was so close to downtown that we could walk any where. Would def recommend to others!
