Property type studio


About the property

Our Separate Studio Is Immediately Off Of The Gemini/Polaris Exit @ I-71.

Our separate studio is designed to offer you rest in your own wooded sanctuary while being close to the city. You will have your own private living space with private entry, gas fireplace, kitchenette, bathroom, washer & dryer, large covered patio, & fire pit. Our goal is to provide a peaceful, comfortable, clean, and safe space so you rest & enjoy yourself as if you were home.

Below is a description of the private studio with private outdoor space:

The living space is designed for comfort and rest. It includes a new leather couch with two large recliners, tables, a large desk, a rocker, a new ipong chair, bookshelves, and plenty of shelving for your personal items. A 50" Smart TV with Free Private WiFi and Direct TV.

The small kitchenette includes a table & 2 chairs, a small refrigerator & a large refrigerator for extended stay guests, a small convection microwave oven (operates as an oven and as a microwave), a Keurig coffee maker with coffee or tea, a drip coffee maker, sink with garbage disposal, toaster, electric skillet, 2 single induction burners with pots and pans,and other essentials.

There is a large walk in closet with plenty of hanging space as well as 2 dressers, a full length mirror, and an iron & ironing board. This feature helps make it an ideal space for extended stay lodging.

In attempting to provide you with a cozy good night's sleep we have chosen high quality mattress, upscale sheets, blankets, and duvet for the queen size bed. You will also find your choice of pillows from soft, Hilton's medium down pillows, and Brookstone Biosense Memory (which is firm). There are reading lamps on each side of the bed that move from side to side and go up and down for you reading pleasure & comfort. There is a ceiling fan above the bed for those that prefer moving air over them as they sleep. ALL bed linens are washed after every guest.

The bathroom has a new toilet, a walk-in shower with seating, shelves and a couple of drawers. We have selected high end towels for your use and other nice additions. There is a powerful blowdryer, a wall make-up mirror, curling iron under the sink for your use. For the bath we offer the natural EVERYDAY BY Alaffia products of body wash, shampoo, conditioner, & body lotion. In addition, we have many extra items such as a shower cap, hairspray q-tips, cotton makeup remover pads, good disposable earplugs, etc...

If you enjoy nature you will see plenty of wildlife as the outside wall is floor to ceiling windows. We love birds and intentionally seek to bring them in. So there will be binoculars for you to use should you so choose. Weekly if not daily you will see deer in addition to the other common wildlife.

If you have children, there is a swing set which includes a baby swing and sandbox that we would be thrilled for them to enjoy. We have a pack in play for an infant or toddler as well as baby jumper, changing set, play mat with mobile, baby blankets, baby towel, & more. We have an extra long twin mattress & plenty of bedding near to washer and dryer that you can bring out for a child to sleep on.

We love nature and flowers and so depending on the time of year you will be surrounded by flowers, gardens, and the beauty of nature. Your walkway is lined with roses, hydrangeas and others flowers.

We are just off of the east side of the new Gemini Exit @ I-71. We are literally 3-5 mins to IKEA and 5 mins to Cabela's.

With no traffic (outside of the rush hours which are 7-8 am and 5-6:15pm) we are 5 minutes off of I-71. During rush hour expect that to be anywhere between 10-15 minutes.

While we cannot offer smoking inside the studio but you are welcome to smoke on the patio or at the fire pit.

We are a couple in our early 60's. We love family, friends, and meeting new people. We like to offer people a private peaceful place to retreat and feel safe while traveling. We hope the comfort of our space will help you to feel at home and enjoy yourself. We are obsessive clean freaks so everything (including light switches & knobs) is cleaned and sanitized after each guest. We tend to give guests their space and so if you see us it may just be when we are watering or perhaps shoveling the snow from the walkway & driveway. If you would like less privacy we make ourselves available. We also send our guests before arrival our private mobile numbers so they can reach us with questions or needs.

Please inquire for our extended stay rates of 28 or more days as we will need to do an adjustment to the set fees on VRBO.

Fee breakdown for reservations:

$90 a night

7-27 days (1 week or more)= $80 a night

28-56 days = $70 a night

57 or more (2 months or more)= $65 a night.

There is a $50 cleaning fee per stay.

Rates are subject to change until reservation is confirmed.

We look forward to hosting you!

It is near to the city. Columbus/Gemini/Polaris Pkway is just over our backyard fence so everything is convenient and yet it feels like you are in the country with the woods and nature all around you.

Everything we needed for a week's stay

  • 5 of 5

The studio has all that you need. Nice, quiet location, near to Polaris. A bit dark, but it's a lower level apartment, so it's to be expected. Be careful on the laminate kitchenette floor: it can be slippery.

Very comfortable space. We would come back any time.

Perfect little hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed here twice, and both times it was a perfect retreat while we explored Columbus and the surrounding area.

Comfortable Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay. Very close to major shopping centers and attractions, but hidden in a beautiful, peaceful spot. The host were very friendly, and were available if anything was needed, but left us to relax and enjoy our visit.

A marvelous place.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many places in the Columbus area but we have found nothing to compare to this home away from home. With a serene peaceful setting it's hard to believe that you are only a short distance from city business and convenient shopping. The inside of the studio apapartment is well designed and decorated. Teresa and Addison have thought of everything a person could possibly want.We would give this rental a six star rating if that was possible

Restful and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Teresa and Addison have thought of all the details for a relaxing stay. The studio is so well stocked from choice of pillows, to magazines, books, choice of tea and Keurig coffee, bath products, water for our bedside and a snack to hold us over until dinner. Everything is top notch. Decor is beautiful and restful, there is a roomy, open feel, towels are plush and soft, the fireplace is a great touch and the bedding is truly luxurious. And, the studio is immaculate - makes you feel like you are the first to stay there. The neighborhood is quiet, and the view of the woods is really lovely. We have stayed at many bed & breakfasts and inns, and this ranks right up with the top. Communication was so thoughtful and helpful too. Thank you for such a terrific place to stay!
