About The Owner

Why have a generic experience when you can experience the city on a more personal level. We are always available to offer suggestions on things to do, etc. Having rented from VRBO ourselves, we understand what it takes to offer a unique property and look forward to hosting you.

Why The Owner chose Indianapolis

WHY WE'RE DIFFERENT:

This is the ONLY property on VRBO that is located in Indianapolis' premier residential & retail area making it safe and highly accessible. The Cottage is nestled within an award winning garden on an acre lot, yet is still minutes from downtown and suburbs.

THE EXPERIENCE:

The cottage is professionally designed and is the flagship property for Pink Elephant Home, a design and organization company. Comprable to a 4 star hotel junior suite, the cottage offers luxe amenities (seasonal linens & signature toiletries) and an unmatched client experience within a garden setting.

What makes this cottage unique

Some of the comments we've received have been how tranquil and relaxing it is to unwind in our guest house. The gardens are in bloom year-round and depending on the season, the display of flowers varies. Whatever time of year, it is a special place to be. When you're ready to explore, there are many big city cultural attractions nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Claudia:

Thanks again for everything--we really enjoyed our stay in Indy and loved

the cottage! I'm just sorry we did not have more time to visit and get to

know you and your family, it was a pretty intense basketball weekend---and

one that ended with a championship for the good guys in green and white!

What a wonderful way to cap off our first ever tournament experience, it

certainly made the weekend worthwhile. Everyone at the arena was so nice

and so helpful and we just really enjoyed ourselves.



You have a wonderful oasis and it was just perfect for us, you have

thought of everything to make your guests comfortable.



We will certainly recommend you to anyone we know that is headed to Indy

and we hope to see you again!



Thanks so much,

Eric & Sharai

Cute and quaint!

A fun stay at the cottage for a couple days! It is a quiet and unique place to stay. If you need a night away to read, write, decompress, or work....perfect little spot.

Lovely property and great location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is perfect for a short stay for 1 or 2 people. The location is wonderful ....good neighborhood and close to lots of restaurants. The kitchen is very small but fine for breakfast. Internet connection was good. We would definitely stay here again.

Absolutely Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The Pink Elephant Cottage was even better than we imagined. The décor was lovely, and the cottage has great amenities. We had a quiet breakfast on the patio in back. The community of Carmel is nice and the drive into Indy on Meridian Dr. with its historic homes was fun.

The owner Claudia was very nice and helpful, making sure we had everything we needed. If you're looking for a getaway in Indianapolis, you can't miss with this place.

Storybook Setting

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay at this beautiful property! Situated right off 465 and conveniently next to Meridian, you are literally close to everything the Indianapolis region has to offer. The cottage itself is perfectly appointed, with no comforts spared - and the grounds are simply breathtaking! Many thanks to the owners for a truly enjoyable getaway...we look forward to returning!
