A lovely apartment in the heart of German Village

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 weeks in this charming apartment, walking to dinner and enjoying the park that is only a block away. Jeff is friendly and made sure we had everything we needed.

Perfect German Village Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for 2 months (Jan & Feb) and absolutely loved it! The apartment was clean and cozy. The wood burning fireplace was an added bonus for the winter months. There's a great outdoor patio that we would have loved had it been warmer. The kitchen was fully stocked with all the items you would need. And the on-site laundry is great for an extended stay. The neighborhood is fantastic and we often went for walks around Schiller Park. There are quite a few restaurants to choose from all within walking distance. Grocery stores, post office, coffee shops, and other amenities are also close by. Jeff was quick to respond to any issues or concerns we had. I would definitely recommend staying here for a weekend or an extended visit.

Pleasant German Village Hideaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful month-long stay in this carriage house apartment. It was convenient to OSU (via the #7 bus) and within walking distance of everything we needed - wonderful cafes, restaurants, book stores, and grocery stores. We had a car but it would be possible to stay there without one. We loved the deck and ate fresh tomatoes and herbs throughout our stay. The bar-height stools and table were not ideal but the owner provided a regular height table and chairs at our request.

Great Location for German Village!

  • 4 of 5

Love the location of this apartment! We were going to Shadowbox Theater for an evening performance and touring the German Village for a few days, and this apartment was excellent for both! It's also right by Schiller Park, a great place for a morning run or afternoon walk. There are several great restaurants within walking distance and local shops as well. The apartment was beautiful and well kept, overall a wonderful experience!

Great property in the heart of German Village!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed here twice, and have had the best experience! The house has everything you need (a parking space, wifi, large flat screen with cable, fully equipped kitchen, linens, laundry, walk-in closet and loft for extra stoage etc.) We stayed in the summer and really enjoyed the deck space which had an herb garden for our use as well as tall shrubs which made it feel private even in the heart of the city. I would highly recommend staying here, and will definitely check availability next time I am in Columbus!
