About Roger Vivas

I am a Venezuelan adopted by Columbus, which I proudly call my second hometown.

I have traveled the world extensively and my best experiences always came from small places owned and managed by people who really cared; not only about their business and their guests but also their community. With Vivas Guesthouse, I have the opportunity to make a difference to those who visit this great city and to the German Village neighborhood.

I am apart of this community; an ambassador who is eager to share my knowledge with others so they can understand why Columbus is so great! I can suggest what to see, where to eat or even cook for you myself. I am here to ensure your stay is wonderful.

I have dedicated my career to hospitality; worked for years in hotels and restaurants and wanted to get away from the cookie cutter. A destination like Vivas Guesthouse will save you from having to feel like a stranger occupying one of the hundreds of identical rooms. Vivas Guesthouse is a boutique destination that feels like home. You can use one of the many bikes to explore the neighborhood, stay in the master suite that I built with my own hands, and even cook a meal in the fully equipped kitchen. Or even better, have me cook that meal for you. I hope you enjoy your stay.

Warmest Regards,

Roger Vivas

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at the Vivas Guesthouse was excellent. The property is conveniently located in a beautiful neighborhood just steps away from Schiller Park and several other German Village gems. The property is beautiful decorated. We were well equipped for cooking and more. We'd definitely stay again.

This house is very well thought out; with a beautiful decoration and offering everything we needed. Free wifi, cable, outdoor space. Not to mention the location; we LOVED German Village.

This place is a MUST and with an amazing host!

Exceeded expectations

Excellent experience! Location was ideal. Close to downtown but in its own great area. The house was spotless and perfect for our families. Roger was wonderful, very accommodating and accessible. Can't recommend this house enough!

Clean, spacious and great location

  • 5 of 5

This lovely, comfortable house was perfect for us while staying in Columbus visiting friends. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking, the bathroom was clean and modern, all three bedrooms had nice beds and plenty of space for us to keep our things organized during our stay. In a world of over promising and under-delivering, this place is the real deal.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

Third time staying at Roger's place. As usual, he was very responsive and accommodating. Our son goes to OSU and this home has become our base in Columbus.

The neighborhood is a gem with tons of charm.

The price is incredible for all the pluses this property offers. We look forward to staying again next Spring

Columbus Marathon Weeekend

  • 5 of 5

EXACTLY what my family needed. We travelled to Columbus for the marathon and needed a place where one person would be able to rest without holding the rest of the family captive. :) A hotel would not have been ideal. This place was perfect. It had all of the comforts of home and plenty of space for everyone to be comfortable. We loved the decor and there were plenty of towels, pillows and extra blankets (all of the things I typically have to request at a hotel). We were able to make coffee and meals with ease and the atmosphere was fantastic. This is a very beautiful neighborhood too! Close to everything we needed . . . Including a very pretty park. The owner is fantastic. We got in late our first night and saw him the next day. "Check in" was easy and convenient . . . He sent very detailed information ahead of time. Every detail was well thought and we needed nothing. Excellent trip. We will be back. :) THANK YOU!!! 😃🏅

This inviting and relaxing home is located in historic german village, steps away from gorgeous schiller park; a quiet, friendly neighborhood that is listed on the national register of historic places and was recognized as a preserve america community. Located just south of downtown, you will enjoy strolling through the brick streets looking at the beautiful homes and gardens throughout the neighborhood. Walk to popular fine dining at g. Michaels or barcelona or stroll down third street and visit the original max and erma's! Get a taste of germany at juergan's bavarian bakery or schmidt's sausage haus, and don't forget the cream puff! There are many other great restaurants in the area to sample, too many to mention! Set time aside to wander through the 32 rooms at the bookloft then head to schiller park for shakespeare summer theater. If you leave german village during your stay you will want to check out the brewery district, the arena district and the short north.

We are approximately 1 mile to both children’s hospital and grant hospital, 1 and 1/2 miles from the theater district and the state house, 3 miles to capital university, 5 miles to the ohio state university, and walking distance to schiller park and countless restaurants and attractions!

Less then 10 minutes from popular destinations to include nationwide arena, the columbus clippers stadium, the crew stadium, the convention center, the expo center, the state fairgrounds, the ohio state university, capital university and berliner park. Approximately 20 minutes from the columbus zoo and aquarium, ohio dominican university, rickenbacker air national guard base, hiking, golfing, dining and much more!

If interested in adventure sports, i can arrange mountain biking tours, hang gliding flights and hikes to hocking hills.
