ADDITIONAL GUEST FEES
Please note we have additional guest fees. The purpose for this is so we can offer the apartment at cost effective prices to both small and large groups (for example, an apartment may be able to sleep 10+ guests but we lower the rate so 2-4 guests can rent it as well). The additional guest fee rate is per person per night and the amount fluctuates during our high and low seasons. Please see the quote breakdown when entering the number of guests and dates for your trip. Please let us know if you have any questions!
You will have access to the entire apartment, shared fence-in backyard, and rear parking area (see PARKING section below for parking details)

• Please note during your reservation planning: There is only ONE bathroom and it is located on the second floor. This apartment can sleeps over 6 guests- we have hosted larger groups several times, usually for shorter periods of time, and this was not an issue for them.

We suggest renting one of our nearby VRBO listings to spread the number of guests out or by staying in one of our listings that has more than one bathroom.

Is the neighborhood safe?
We live nearby and feel the neighborhood is relatively safe. Please note this is the city- we do have petty crime in the Short North and University area, and always advise to practice not leaving valuables in your car (we have not had any issues at our apartments, I state this because we are in the city) and walk with a buddy at night on well-lit, busy roads such as High Street, Summit, and 5th Ave.
