About Cyndi Cappel

We both grew up in Cincinnati and love it here! We have raised our three children in Cincinnati. We bought this house as an indirect result of our empty nest. We sold our home and while renovating our new one, found ourselves in need of extended, short term housing. This is when we learned that there is VERY limited month to month housing available and it is VERY expensive. So, we bought this home in hopes of filling that need for others. Our hope is to provide a comforatable, affordable place for those in need of a home for 2 weeks to 4 months.

Cyndi Cappel purchased this house in 2014

Why Cyndi Cappel chose Cincinnati

We love the Oakley area. It is urban while still being a nice, quiet neighborhood. There are many restaurants, bars and coffee shops within walking distance with new ones popping up in the area every day. It is perfectly located close to downtown, Xavier University, University of Cincinnati and all major highways. The people who live here are the friendly, fun sort that the mid west is known for.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for a great stay. We will be back soon I hope. This house was perfect for our needs - needed to be in this area, have a nice kitchen and be comfortable. We liked that it was not on a through street so there was not much traffic. We walked to lunch, grocery store, etc. (The pathway through the gulley was nice too.). One feature that is particularly nice is the long driveway allowing two vehicles to park off road.

Quiet street, clean home, close to everything that we needed

  • 5 of 5

Great property where my wife, 3 daughters, and I stayed for close to three weeks. We enjoyed the home and location and were able to have guests over a couple of times to enjoy a dinner. The location is great with a Fresh Market less than a minute drive away, a Kroger, Meijers, and Fresh Thyme no more than 5 mins drive away.

The home had all of the appliances and utensils that we needed (including crockpot, charcoal grill, etc.).

We would stay there again - thanks Cyndi!

Comfy home in great location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location in Cincinnati! Home is walkable to restaurants and grocery. Home is in perfect condition. Everything you need is there. I stayed for two and a half weeks while attending a teacher training program. It was wonderful to come home every evening to such a lovely place.

Great updated "Nest" in a great neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

The Nest is a beautiful updated home with lots of charm in a neighborhood that is convenient to all tha Cincinnati has to offer. Cyndi was excellent to work with and we enjoyed all of the personal touches in her property.

The house is a 5 minute walk away from outdoor eateries, grocery and night spots. Great neighborhood for walking! Excellent experience.

Lovely Home, Tastefully Decorated

  • 5 of 5

We found this lovely home to be perfect stay for our Christmas/New Baby visit with our daughters.The remodeled and well-equipped kitchen was ideal for food prep and the spacious dining area provided pleasant dining experiences for our meals together. Two full bathrooms allowed our daughter and son-in-law a private area to stay. The location made it easy to grab last minute food items, gifts, and restaurant visits, being just minutes from Krogers, Starbucks, Kenwood Mall, and new favorite eats - Piadas and Sleepy Bees. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and could easily make it feel like a permanent home!

Wonderful holiday stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday at "The Nest". The house is immaculate and Cyndi is extremely responsive. The kitchen has everything one needs to cook. I made several dishes on Thanksgiving morning and lacked for nothing. Our daughter made her signature cookies on Friday with the same experience. We have family living in the area and we anticipate staying at this lovely property many times.
