Russell and Douglas are amazing hosts! They were very welcoming and I felt right at home when I arrived. They went above and beyond, making sure I had everything I needed. I woke up early most morning to commute to my work site and Douglas not only made sure there was coffee ready, but also provided to-go cups for me! As others have mentioned, relaxing on the back porch in evenings was fantastic. Their dogs are friendly and were a joy to have around as well. This was my first experience with a shared AirBnB and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The neighborhood is also great - there is a large park with bike trails and plenty of green space within walking distance and a myriad of good restaurants are just a short drive away. I would definitely stay with Russell and Douglas again!
My husband and I had a nice stay at their house! It was very comfortable. I loved the backyard and the garden! House is located minutes from downtown. Russell and Douglas were welcoming we arrived and showed us around the house. Bed was comfortable. The light breakfast and coffee was great!
Russell confirmed our expected arrival time and was home to greet us. He was welcoming and very hospitable.
The home is exactly as illustrated - better in reality, in fact. The bedrooms are very comfortable and backyard with covered deck and garden is a quiet retreat.
Clean and surprisingly private for a room within a home. Lovely, quiet, and safe neighborhood. Continental breakfast left for you each morning was a bonus. Gorgeous back covered porch overlooking garden.
This was probably the best airbnb I have ever stayed in so far. I am a host myself, and I was extremely impressed. They had a lot of nice personal touches for guests like a guest journal, and I may be incorporating some of their ideas myself. It was slightly farther from downtown than I wanted to be, but I knew that going in to it and booked because I like the listing, and the extra couple miles was totally worth it! The area is beautiful, the house is perfect, very clean, well laid out and well designed. They had some great music playing downstairs during the day, and the backyard deck was the perfect place to relax. Russell & Douglas were the perfect hosts, very friendly and attentive, recommended some great places, and even invited me to meet them for a drink. I would give these guys 6 stars if I could, they defiantly know what they are doing with airbnb, and this place will be on the top of my list for my next visit to Columbus. Well done guys!
Excellent accommodations! House was very comfortable. House is located minutes from downtown Columbus. Russell and Douglas greeted us as soon as we arrived and showed us around the house and to our beautifully decorated room. Bed was comfortable and I slept like a rock. The light breakfast and coffee was a great start to the morning. I would recommend this location to everyone I know and give them a five star rating!
Douglas and Russell are great hosts. This was our first experience with Airbnb, and it was definitely a good one.
The house is really cute and clean with great vintage charm. The room and bed were very comfortable and reminded me a lot of those in my aunt and uncle's B&B in the Adirondacks. The deck in the back was one of our favorite parts of our stay. It's a great place to relax with the calming sound of the fountain in the Coi pond and two very sweet pooches to keep you company.
Breakfast was provided, which was great as we were on the run on both mornings of our two night stay.
WIFI was also provided which was a great perk as well.
Inviting, immaculate, and very comfortable....what more could you ask for?
