Fly right in to the Eagle Creek Airport in your private plane or Indianapolis International Airport for commercial flights! This two bedroom condo is situated on the north end of the quaint, Eagle Creek Airport and next to the reservoir. It is located just 25 minutes from Indianapolis International, 15 minutes to downtown, 10 minutes to the Indianapolis 500 race track and 2 minutes to Eagle Creek Park. The name of the housing area is called "Cobblestone." Cobblestone condos are cedar shake sided with cobblestone fireplaces on the exterior and are tucked in an upper scale section of Pike Township in Marion County.
National Geographic lists Eagle Creek Park in Indianapolis as a "top birding spot" in the U.S. It is the nations fourth largest municipal park and offers boating, swimming, bicycling, hiking, birding and zip-lining. This condo is located just one mile from the entrance to the park! Kevin Carlsen designed and created the best ornithology center you will find and it is located inside the park! So, if birding and photography is what you are after, this is a park to visit!!
The Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a short drive away. You can save a lot of time by dodging the race day traffic by going in the back way to the track from the condo. The museum is a must see for race fans and is located inside the track.
Locals like to hang out down the street at the popular Rick's Cafe Boatyard and watch the sunset across the reservoir. The Indianapolis Sailing Club, small sailboats and Hobie Cats adorn the landscape. Take a before or after pontoon ride from the dock at Ricks. Other restaurants are nearby, too. You have your choice of franchise places such as Cracker Barrel, IHOP, TGIFriday, Mike's Sandwiches, Taco Bell, Burger King, Arby's and MacDonalds. Georgetown Market is the closest health food store and offers organic food, supplements and a lunch bar complete with freshly made foods and drinks. Trader's Point Creamery is also a great place to visit for artisan cheeses, fresh, organic food and dairy products from grass fed cows. You may have lunch, brunch or dinner there, too.
After dinner and daily activities, head for a comfy night's rest in the home of a nature photographer and world traveler. This one-level condo, dressed in safari chic, has two bedrooms and one bath all on the main floor. Sit on the back patio and enjoy the view of the pond and pool/cabana. If it's warm enough, take a dip in the pool. Located 15 minutes from downtown and close to all interstates, the international airport and the Indianapolis 500 Motor Speedway. Walking trails, the nation's 4th largest municipal park and golf course are less than 2 miles away. Go birding in one of National Geographic's top birding sites - Eagle Creek Park and visit the Ornithology Center! A welcome basket awaits you!
Interaction with Guests
I leave the keys to the home at the front door for guest(s)' convenience so they may arrive at their leisure so often times I do not get to meet guests.
Imagine nature at your door step but actually having a city address. It's the best of both worlds here at Cobblestone! Sip a glass of wine and walk to Hobie Beach. Go to the park and rent a kayak, sailboat or pontoon. Go hiking or biking or birding. Dine or hang out at Rick's Cafe while enjoying the views. You might just spot an eagle or two!
Quiet time 11:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. No need for towels, sheets, etc. Everything you need should be here -- except a car. Two bicycles are conveniently located in the one-car garage. Trash day is Tuesday. Pool is open and key is next to front door. This is a no toxin, smoke-free zone! Please leave keys & garage door opener inside the home upon departure!
This was a great experience right from the start when I told Joni why we were coming (the Indy 500 race) and then after I booked she quickly contacted me when she realized I had booked for the wrong weekend! I was so thankful she caught my mistake right away and I was able to switch it to the correct weekend saving us from a big problem! When we arrived to the condo there was a very nice welcome basket with goodies for us which was a pleasant surprise. The condo was well maintained and had more than we expected as far as amenities. I have used Airbnb before and this was my best experience. Joni was a great host and very responsive when I had questions. She even included a map of Indianapolis as well as some local restaurants and places to check out. If we ever come back to Indianapolis, I will definitely stay at Joni's place again. The condo was just as pictured and described, as well as being in a very safe and comfortable neighborhood. We also enjoyed the ducks and geese that came up to her patio every morning and the eagles flying around above our heads.
Joni's home is in a great location and convenient to many of Indy's activities (loved being so close to Eagle Creek park). A beautifully decorated interior made this a very comfortable place and I thoroughly enjoyed my 30 day stay. This was my first Airbnb rental and I'm glad I chose this unit to start my trip. Definitely set the bar high for future rentals:)
Joni is a true professional, and her property is a great value, in a good location, easy off/on to the main highway. I consider it my home away from home if I have to travel to Indy!
Joni is a great host. The condo exceeded our expectations and was spacious and comfortable. Highly recommended!
Joni is a true professional, she made all of my concerns about using this service (first timer) vanish. She is a strong communicator, was very concise with directions and made the whole process simple.
Her condo is extremely comfortable and well appointed. The neighborhood is very nice and seems very safe. Joni added the extras that really made us feel at home. Would stay again, and want to thanks again, for taking such good care of us.

About the Host, Joni
I am an outgoing, friendly, adventuresome woman who has taken time off to travel the world. Full of stories and adventures, I love life and love to hear the stories of others. In 1995, my boyfriend, a pilot, was killed in a tragic airplane crash so I left the law firm in which I was working to travel the world for eight months starting in January, 1996. From diving off a yacht in Aruba and landing on an Octopus, sleeping alone on the Serengeti plains and being visited by a male lion at 4:00 a.m., being pushed off a boat, alone, in the Indian Ocean treading water as the boat motored out of sight, to having a near death experience with malaria in Zanzibar! It has been a wonderful life! Someday, I'll write a book! Live your dreams and enjoy the adventure called life! And don't forget to love one another.
