Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Attractive, comfortable, quiet room, looking out to the back courtyard. Very convenient location on Madison Rd, between Hyde Park and O'Bryonville. Val and John were very welcoming, happy to give recommendations, and sit and talk over a cup of coffee; but also quiet as church mice when we were sleeping in! We hope they continue to be Airbnb hosts in the future.

  • Total sweeties! Beautiful, quiet room, fun hangin' out with them, well-located, great value. I've stayed at a ton of AirBNB listings all over the country and this one comes HIGHLY recommended by me!

  • Val and John are genuinely kind people and offer a very comfortable place to stay. I was there over a weekend with focus on a training in the Hyde Park area, and it was all smooth and appreciated- easy parking, clean and quite house, warm bed and fresh towels, and gracious hosts. I would certainly stay there again when back in Hyde Park. Mahalo!!

  • Val and John were lovely hosts! Their private room and bath was perfect for us. We enjoyed the Hyde Park area as it was close enough to downtown (where we were conference-ing) but far enough to enjoy a more residential area to come home to. Val offered us breakfast every morning and even a nightcap when we came back from our busy days. Highly recommended!

We're Val and John, and we live in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA and love to travel. We're empty nesters and decided we'd love to share our extra space with the kind of interesting people who think airbnb is a great way to travel. We know how much more we get out of travel when we stay with someone who really knows the area instead of in a hotel. (That's us in Puerto Vallarta, where we stayed with John's college roomie & partner and had one of the best vacations ever because we were staying with locals.) We're lifelong residents of this area and happy to give you recommendations for what to see and do and where to eat and shop. As guests we're pretty easy, except for one thing: I (Val) am an early riser and often wake up at 4am and want to read and drink coffee until the rest of the house is awake. But I'll tiptoe around! I love writing and talking about food and food issues, visiting local farmers' markets and unique restaurants wherever I travel, and cooking. I'm happy to cook for you or with you whether you're my guest or my host! John's an attorney for A Major Consumer Products Company here in Cincinnati. He loves craft beer, politics, and reading non-fiction. We have two college-age kids, one at Muskingum University (in New Concord OH) and one at Colorado College (in Colorado Springs.)
