About This Listing
My comfortable one bedroom with its own private bathroom is calming and relaxing—perfect for a quiet night's sleep. The second story room has a queen bed and comfortably sleeps two. You can use the kitchen and covered carport parking.
Coming to Indy? Perhaps to catch a sporting event or conference or just to visit the Midwest? If so, I have a quaint private bedroom in a two-story, brick home built in 1900 not far from downtown Indy. The home has been updated with a contemporary design. The bed is a comfortable queen with a brand-new memory foam topper, and the bedroom has plenty of privacy with natural light. You also get your own private bathroom (not an en-suite bathroom) that has been modernized with a great shower. This bedroom is perfect for a relaxing, quiet getaway from the hubbub of downtown or a place to settle on your way through town.
My home is ten minutes directly east of downtown or about 25 minutes from the airport. A bus line is directly across the street (eastbound) or a half block away (westbound) if you choose to ride the bus, and you use drive and park your car in my carport. Uber is about $10 one way to downtown.
My home is just a few minutes from Irvington and several locally owned restaurants, including Jockamo's, The Legend, Black Acre Brewery, and Steer In. Starbuck's is also a few minutes away. Fountain Square is only ten minutes away as well with a plethora of restaurants, bars, shops, and hangouts.
Be a guest in my home and relax. Complimentary continental breakfast served (yogurt, juice, fruit, coffee).
Sorry, but I will not wash your car.
You can utilize the living room (and watch TV with Netflix), the three-season front porch (and enjoy a cup of coffee), the back yard and patio areas, and the kitchen (and prepare a light meal), if you're tidy.
If you need room for more than two, I have a second bedroom with a queen bed that I also rent for an additional $40 a night. The two bedrooms share the same bathroom. If you're interested. I usually keep the second listing turned off unless guests have a need for it. Just ask me.
Interaction with Guests
I do come and go (I'm a busy guy), so my interactions vary. With some guests who are interested in carrying on a conversation, I love meeting new people. I have also gone out to dinner with a few guests. If you'd rather relax, I'll leave you to yourself. Just let me know.
I don't have any pets, but feel free to play with any dust bunnies if you find them, but I do strive to keep a very clean home, so don't waste your time looking for them.
My historic home is nestled about six blocks west of Irvington in the Bosart-Brown neighborhood. I have a fenced-in backyard with patio furniture, so it's a perfect place to have your morning cup of coffee or a mid-afternoon snack.
The neighborhood is an urban area, on the edge of the quaint village of Irvington. The house is located on Washington Street, which is one the main east-west streets in Indianapolis, which makes getting around very easy.
The house is a two-story brick home with new windows, and the room is in the rear of the house, so it's quiet and relaxing.
A bus stop with buses heading downtown is just two houses away. The bus ride is about a 15- to 20-minute ride, depending on traffic and the time of day. You can also drive in about 10 to 15 minutes. The bus stop for coming from downtown is directly across the street.
Please note: Taking the bus is a city-life experience, so you'll see people from all walks of life. If you're not accustomed to such, taking the bus may not be your best option.

Chad's place was very nice and clean. He had provided everything a guest would need to feel at home. He had very detailed instructions, including photos on how to find the entrance. I had a rental car so having a car port was very nice. He also checked on me via text to make sure I had what I needed. Internet speed was noticeably very fast.
What a great stay and home! I felt very welcome from the minute I first made the reservation all the way until we checked out after our stay. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us for a long weekend stay – everything was exactly as described in your listing. Indeed we found our stay cozy and the bed is super comfy. I love your bathroom, so beautifully styled! The neighborhood is good – very convenient to get to downtown. As a host, you also provided top-notch service – very communicative and helpful as well as ensured we had the perfect stay. Thank you for everything! I hope your listing is available the next time we visit Indianapolis.
This was my first time using airbnb, and it was amazing! Chad's room was spotless when we arrived, and he made us feel very welcome! He had a book in our room with recommended restaurants and things to do in the area, which was very helpful. When we come back to Indy, this is where we will stay!
Chad's house and the AirBnB room were spotlessly clean, inviting and cozy. Chad is a lovely host who made me feel comfortable while respecting my privacy. I was in town to do interviews, and was traveling all over the state. The location was perfect for someone with a car, and close to major highways, so perfect for my needs. There is also a bus (#8) that goes right downtown (15 minutes, $1.50), but the location might be tricky if you don't have a car.
Chad's place is amazing! He has beautiful art in his house and made me feel right at home. He even provided toiletries, water, coffee, and breakfast. I loved the journal he has for his visitors to leave a note. We did leave a note. :) Additionally, he stayed in touch with me the whole time and responded quickly to me if I had any questions. His kindness and generosity was amazing. I will be recommending Chad's place to my friends and family when they visit Indy. Final Grade: A++

About the Host, Chad
I'm a self-employed editor during the day and a high school and college volleyball ref by night. I also dabble in bartending, working at a local historic reception venue a couple times a month.
I am down-to-earth, sincere, genuine, loyal, and respectful. Life is so short and delicate, so live today like it's your last day.

My favorite countries include New Zealand, Australia, Argentina, Spain, Greece, and Brazil.
As an AirBnB host, I love welcoming people into my home. Since joining AirBnB three years ago, I have met and hosted people from all over the world—New Zealand, India, Canada, Singapore, Taiwan, England, Saudi Arabia, France, and so many places within the United States. I take hosting someone very seriously. I want you to feel comfortable in my home and city—in other words, my community.
If you're road weary and need a place for one night or you're coming into town for a conference or vacation and want to get away from the hubbub of downtown, I can help.

I'm LGBT- and straight-friendly as well as open to meeting all types of people. Mi casa es tu casa.
Just an FYI: My home is in a city. Indianapolis is a city of socioeconomic pockets . If you do take the city bus, you will go through some neighborhoods with a lower socioeconomic level on your way downtown. I wanted to give you a heads-up before you reserved, if you're not used to city living.
