Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home in the heart of the Short North, one of Columbus' most vibrant neighborhoods. Steps away from High Street, where you will find everything from restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, yoga studios, breweries, art galleries, and so much more. Free off-street private parking for up to 3 cars + a complimentary gift card to our favorite local coffee shop included!

The Space

Chic decor, coupled with high-end, comfortable furnishings, creates a unique feel in this 1920 two-story home. Ceiling fans, central air/heat, cable TV, and WiFi are just a few amenities you will enjoy during your stay.

Bedroom #1 features a King handmade upholstered bed with memory foam mattress and reclaimed wood accent wall. A small ensuite bathroom w/simple stall shower, sink and toilet is attached.

Bedroom #2 has a Queen Serta bed, vaulted ceiling and a ceiling fan.

Bedroom #3 has two twin pillow top beds and a reading nook with large chaise lounge (about the size of a toddler bed). A double high Queen air mattress is also available to sleep guests #7 and #8 if needed.

Please note: All bedrooms and full bathrooms are located on the 2nd floor of the home. There is a small half bathroom located on the first floor.

Kitchen is fully equipped with major appliances, pots and pans, dishes and utensils, and a Keurig coffee maker. Keurig K-cups for the coffee maker are provided. Maytag front-loading washer/dryer are located off of the kitchen for your convenience.

Dining room is furnished with Crate & Barrel table and vintage chairs, which comfortably accommodates 6 but can seat up to 8. Living room has a 47-inch cable TV and is furnished with extra deep couches that are very comfy for lounging. The first floor half bath is located under stairs in the dining room.

2 private off-street parking spots located directly behind our private backyard area are available for guests to use during their stay. The backyard space is fenced in with a newly replaced 6-foot privacy fence, and includes a deck/lounge, a patio area with dining table, a gas grill and fire pit. String lights around the fence can be turned on to create a fun ambiance. Perfect gathering space for enjoying a cup of coffee or a cocktail at night!

**Important things to know about this property before booking**

1 - Guests must keep noise to a minimum at all times. As always, we DO NOT allow loud, disruptive behavior and ask that all guests observe quiet hours between 10pm - 8am. This is not the house for you if you are looking to have a party or bring the party back with you. Registered, paying guests only.

2 - All bathrooms are on the smaller side. One bathroom has a tub/shower, and the other bathroom has a 36” stall shower.

3 - All bedrooms and full bathrooms are located on the 2nd floor. There is one small powder room located on the 1st floor, off the dining room. There is a straight staircase w/15 steps between the two floors.

4 - As a general rule, pets are NOT allowed at this property. However, if you have one, ask us - we might make an exception.

Getting Around

If you decide to venture out, you're in luck. Our home has a walkscore of 90 and a bike score of 70, so it's easy to get practically everywhere you want to go by foot or bike if you're into that. If you'd rather catch a ride, our two favorites are UBER and the free CBUS circulator bus, which runs from 3rd Ave (3 min walk from the house) down High St to Downtown, German Village and Brewery District. Columbus' standard bus service (COTA) is also available on High Street, as well as Columbus' bike sharing program (COGO).

About Catherine and Bryan

We're Bryan & Catherine Williamson, a married couple with a passion for real estate, interior design, and old homes. Together, we own an interior design studio here in Columbus, in addition to hosting guests at our two (soon to be three!) vacation rentals in Italian Village (Comfy, Chic, Short North Home - 3719746) and German Village (Historic German Village Townhome - 4173697). We have hosted more than 1300 guests over the past 4 years and truly enjoy every minute of it. You can find out more about us on Instagram @beginninginthemiddle and on our blog, Beginning in the Middle (.net).

Catherine and Bryan purchased this house in 2013

Why Catherine and Bryan chose Italian Village

We picked this property mainly because of the walkability of the location. Having lived in NYC prior to this, we love that the Short North area is urban and close to everything (coffee, restaurants, bars - you name it), but also has a neighborhood feel.

What makes this house unique

Our décor adds a homey, cozy feel to the house. The private, fenced in backyard offers extra space to relax outside and enjoy a cup of coffee or a cocktail. Also, the off-street parking comes in handy on weekends when Short North parking is hard to find!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I stayed in this beautiful home for a weekend getaway and we had such a great time! The location is great....easy and quick walk to restaurants and shops. The owners are wonderful and made our stay extra special with some surprise goodies upon arrival! The house was clean, beautifully decorated (as it appears in the pictures!) and in great condition. We will definitely be using this for any future stays in downtown Columbus. Highly recommend this place....5 stars all the way!

My family stayed at this beautiful home over a weekend for my son's wedding. Everything about this property was great. The rooms are the perfect size for guests and the living room is so comfy for hanging out and down time. The bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds and the bathrooms were well placed for our needs.

The location makes visiting the shops, bars and restaurants in the Short North and downtown Columbus area very accessible and the off street parking located in the rear of the home was so convenient. My only regret was that the weather wasn't warm enough to enjoy the fantastic outside living space at the rear of the property. I would have loved to enjoy the fire pit and beautiful wood furniture in the space.

Beautiful property, excellent location, and responsive owners!

  • 5 of 5

This is a charming place to call "home" for 6 days. The location was perfect, our cars fit, and the house had everything for us to utilize. Catherine and Bryan were friendly and quick to respond. I highly recommend them and this home for future stays in Columbus. Thank you for a great first experience with HomeAway.

Catherine was very accommodating during our visit. She had a tree for us and decorated the family room making it Christmas and festive. This was our second stay and the location is perfect for getting around. ❤️👍?🏻?🎄?
