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.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2006

Why The Owner chose Indianapolis


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 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


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.

Cozy Cottage

Our family had a great time staying in the cottage! It was an easy 15 minute drive to visit the Children's Museum in downtown Indianapolis. Claudia was extremely helpful and hospitable- the cottage had everything we needed! We would definitely recommend it.

Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5

We visited for a basketball tourney in Indy. It truly felt like we were at home staying at the Cottage! I typically do not care for hotel stays. My wife (Butler alumni) and I have traveled the past 5 years mostly in our motorhome. The many conveniences of having our own place can be found at the cottage. Short inexpensive Uber ride from the cottage to Broadripple and for a few more dollars we were in downtown Indy. Great location, great owners, great stay!!!

I highly recommend it!

Safe travels,

Happy Campers

Delightful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Both mother and daughter had a wonderful stay at this lovely cottage in a beautiful garden setting. In spite of the rainy weather we were tucked cozy inside, comfortable with thoughtful amenities. Claudia was a gracious host offering great suggestions for dining while in the area. Though not far from our own home we felt like we were miles away in this darling retreat. We'd love to return.

The Perfect Place To Stay In Indy

  • 5 of 5

I can't express how pleasant my stay has been. The owners are very accommodating and did everything possible to make me feel welcome. The cottage is very comfy and private, but close many excellent eateries and shopping. It is like having living in your own home while traveling. And when my plans changed requiring an extension on my original check out day, they did everything possible to make it happen. This will be the first place I try to book anytime my travel takes me to Indianapolis. My total experience couldn't have been better.
