Overview

Photos and Description of this Italian Village holiday house

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.

The Space

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

King bedroom features a handmade upholstered bed with memory foam mattress, and reclaimed wood accent wall. One of the full baths (stall shower) is attached. Queen bedroom has a Serta bed, vaulted ceiling and a ceiling fan. The 3rd bedroom 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 provided to sleep guests #7 and #8 (if needed). All bedrooms are located on the 2nd floor of the home.

Kitchen is fully equipped with major appliances, pots and pans, dishes and utensils, and a Keurig coffee maker. Maytag front-loading washer/dryer are located off of the kitchen for your convenience. Dining room is furnished with Crate & Barrel table and chairs, which comfortably accommodates 4-6 but can seat up to 10. Living room has a 47-inch cable TV with Chromecast, and is furnished with extra deep couches providing additional sleeping space. Newly renovated main floor half bath is located under stairs in dining room.

2 off-street parking spots are located directly behind our private backyard area. The backyard space is fenced in with a 6-foot privacy fence, and includes a deck/lounge, a patio area with Ikea dining table that seats up to 10, a gas grill and fire pit. String lights around the fence can be turned on to create a fun, festive ambiance. Perfect space for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning, or a cocktail at night!

Getting Around

If you decide to venture out, you're in luck. Our home has a walk score of 85, so it's easy to get practically everywhere you want to go by foot if you like walking. If walking isn't your thing, several methods of public transportation are easily accessible, including the free 'CBUS' circulator bus that 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). Cabs are also available.

About Catherine and Bryan

We decided to move to Columbus after spending three years in NYC. We love the Short North area - it's the best area of Columbus if you ask us!

We're very laid back and enjoy exploring when we travel. We always have a better time when we get to experience the local culture (especially food!), and get to know the locals. We want the real deal. Because of this, we love hosting guests who are visiting Columbus and giving them a unique taste of the city and neighborhood.

Catherine and Bryan purchased this house in 2013

Why Catherine and Bryan chose Columbus

We picked this property mainly because of the walkability of the location. Having lived in NY prior to this, we love that the Short North area is urban, but also has a neighborhood feel.

What makes this house unique

Our unique 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!

Awesome property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Short North for a long weekend and had a great time. It is an awesome location and the owners were very helpful with local connections. The house is in an historic district with a lot of urban renewal actively in process. The home was very comfortable and exactly as promised. Would definitely recommend as a central location in Short North. Thanks so much, Catherine and Bryan!

Great home in the Short North

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect! Although there were only two of us, the house would be great for a reunion of friends or family. The decorating and amenities are all complete and up to date. The beds are very comfortable. The house is less than a block from High Street, yet was extremely quiet. A great social area in the backyard and wonderful restaurants, bars and shopping, plus the free bus that circulates makes the house a very convenient. We were able to walk to campus also. A great home away from home! Thank you for a great stay.

We came to Columbus to meet family for a football game. The house exceeded our expectations. It was adorable, the location unbeatable, and really just everything we hoped. Thank you for the hospitality.

Great trip!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a family wedding and it was perfect. It was a great location within walking distance of many shops and restaurants and the beds were so comfy! The weather was less than perfect so we enjoyed the large table for playing games and the big screen tv. We would definitely stay here again.

Exceeded All Expectations...

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend. Thank you so much! We loved the house and everything it had to offer. It was so comfortable and provided everything we were looking for an more. We absolutely loved the setting both indoors and in the backyard. The neighborhood was perfect. Absolutely loved the Fox in the Snow cafe (thank you again for the gift card). I will definitely recommend your home to anyone who is traveling to Columbus and should we return will certainly reach out to you and Bryan to check availability.

The check-in process and instructions from you could not have been more simple and clear. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you for your hospitality and professionalism from day one.
