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 with the new Short North street parking rules in effect!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Excellent overall experience!
Catherine and Bryan's home is lovely. The location is fantastic for dining, nightlife, events downtown. All of the amenities you could hope for in a rental property Tell your friends to rent from Catherine and Bryan when in the Columbus area!
Good location. Nice to have parking. Appreciated Keurig and some cooking essentials. Fox in the snow was enjoyable.
Perfect spot for a Columbus weekend
Our family was in town for a wedding and stayed at this perfect spot in Short North. Modest on the outside but very warm and functional on the inside. Close to everything and a perfect spot for our visit. Hosts were super responsive and accommodating. Sorry the weather was a little too blustery to enjoy the backyard - it looked inviting too. Thanks for having us.
Overall our stay was good. Received check-in instructions very late. Door lock batteries were dead and door was unlocked upon arrival and would not lock the next morning. The issue was addressed quickly. I would return.
A group of friends were in town for a bachelor party and although I live in a different area in Columbus, we wanted to stay as close to the short north area as possible since that’s where all the great food and bars are. Catherine & Bryan’s place was in simple walking distance (2-5 minutes) from all the places we wanted to go and had plenty of room for our large party! A snow storm hit over the weekend and they even allowed us to delay our check-out time so we could safely depart. I really appreciate their hospitality and would love to stay at this place again during the warmer months so we can use the back yard patio space. Couldn’t recommend this place enough - if you enjoy being a short walk to breweries and food, and a $5 Uber to nationwide arena or the park street bars, this place is a must rent for you!
Charming quaint home
Perfect location. We had everything we needed and the hosts were quick to respond when I couldn’t figure out the tv (disclosure I’m technology challenged). Cozy comfortable home to just chill out in. Kitchen fully stocked with all the essentials for cooking and the layout makes for a quick easy cleanup. You will have to have some willpower to resist climbing into the beds and getting out as they are so comfortable. We will definitely be back if the hosts will have us. Highly recommend.
