About Laura Wills

Laura and her husband Jonathan purchased this home right after they were married in 2004. After pouring much sweat into updating every room and finishing the attic and remodeling the kitchen, it was decided that sharing the house with others would be more meaningful than just selling it. "We love this neighborhood, we love the neighbors, we value hospitiality and VRBO/HOMEAWAY is a perfect fit for us". Laura is a homeschooling mother of 3. She loves to run, and sneak vegtables into every dish. Jonathan is a photographer who calls KY home but speads much time shooting abroad for clients like Onesight, P&G, Google and many more.

Why Laura Wills chose Dayton

This property is a blend of history and convienciene. If you love to cook this kitchen will satifify that desire. If you need rest the bed rooms are comfortable and well thought. This property is in the walkable town of Bellevue which is home to some great dining optios such as Virgils, Bellevue Bistro, The Laughing Cow and Siam Orchid.

This house also offers a closed in backyard with a charchol grill and patio furniture.

What makes this house unique

The third floor offers a great space for kids to hang out and watch movies, play games and have fun. For those looking to add a little excercise into their stay the Dayton KY running path on the flood wall is an easy 5k (down and back) or wind your way through the historic streets of Bellevue.

Great House for a Large Group

  • 5 of 5

We had a total of 6 guys on our Football Trip and everyone had there own beds and plenty of space. Its an older house but very modern inside. Short drive to everything and a very quite neighborhood.

Communication was great and the owner was able to give us details on some wonderdul places to eat. I'd recommend this house to anyone who is looking for a quite place right outside of Cincinatti, Ohio.

Hospital Stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was cozy and very close to Cincinnati's Children's Hospital where my daughter had an extensive surgery. All went well and we were able to leave earlier than expected. My dog Maggie was obsessed with the backyard and very much enjoyed herself. Close walking distance to restaurants and shopping. Laura was the sweetest and would always check in to see if we needed anything. Upon arrival we had donuts and treats and she dropped off some fresh bread one morning; can't say enough about her caring personality. I would recommend this house as it is in a safe neighborhood and close to everything.

Wonderful Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ofallon house. It perfectly met the needs for our family staying there. It was incredibly clean and well-equipped. Its location was close to the sights that we wanted to visit. To top it off, the owners are accommodating and even provided a local favorite treat for us upon arrival. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others in the future.

This home is tucked away in a small town with boutiques, ice cream, great food, and bars. Yet it is so close to downtown, you are an easy 1.5 mile ride to downtown. You can catch a reds game, or any of our local entertainment districts (Downtown, Fountain Square, The Banks, Newport, OTR).
