The Space

You will be staying in my artist's loft in the heart of the Massachusetts Avenue Cultural District. There are over 10 bars and restaurants within a 2 block walk. Cute boutiques and shops are just steps from your door.

You get your choice of:
1 full-sized bed/private bedroom with double occupancy OR
1 bright & airy twin bed/ private bedroom that opens to the balcony

NOTE: This is my private home, so I am usually onsite in the evenings and sleep in the other bedroom. Whitney the mellow cat lives here as well. During the day, I am working in my art studio nearby but am close enough to attend to whatever may come up. If you require the entire condo for your party, please note that in your initial inquiry and I can quote you a separate fee.

Please view all the photos carefully--there are stairs! Some actually love this as it reminds them of past European trips. My Parisian guests laughed at me because there are so few steps compared to their flats. (Yipes!)

There is one bathroom (but Italian granite/tile makes it worth it!)
Breakfast (coffee, tea, baguette, yogurt/fruit parfaits-this varies)
Transport to and from the airport available
Absolutely smoke-free
Ipod/iphone docking

Starbucks across the street
Grocery store outside back door

The space is just under 1000 square feet

Clean linens and towels provided.
Parking space may be available, otherwise this (email hidden) for those who don't need a car, I can usually
ferry you where you need to go--especially handy for conferences.

There may or may not be a cat on the premises, sometimes she likes to visit her country cousins.

Fantastic balcony cathedral views. Really. It's stunning at night.

I will be available most all the time for questions about Indy, locations, best bars & restaurants, etc. but I'm also savvy enough to know if you like your space. :)

Don't hesitate to use me for Indy info. I've lived here since 1989 and in this neighborhood since 1997.

  • Krista is a quirky and fun person with limitless energy and enthusiasm. I was very comfortable in her condo conveniently located minutes from just about anything. What else can I say? Great host. Great place. I'd stay here again no questions asked.

  • Krista was friendly and organized and her place is very nice indeed. It is located in a nice part of downtown Indy in a building with a lot of character. The room itself is as quiet as one could expect in an urban environment and quite comfortable. It was a 10 minute walk from where my meeting took place, so was very convenient for me. I enjoyed staying there [and spending some time with her cat] and recommend it highly for anyone [or a couple] who are going to going to downtown Indianapolis.
    Krista was very welcoming and informative about the neighborhood.
    If you are someone who travels with a lot of luggage, note that you will have to lug it up a couple flights of stairs to get to the apartment.

  • Kritsa was a very warm and accommodating host. She went to a lot of effort to make me feel at home and she was great to talk to. It's a pity I couldn't spend more time there. The location is fantastic, it could not have been better. Close to a great supermarket, coffee shops and restaurants, all within easy walking distance.
    Kritsa went above and beyond what I expected and it's great also to stay with someone with so many experiences who is also very intelligent. Conversations were great.

  • Great location and host!

  • I had a lovely stay at Krista's condo! She was very helpful with showing me around the neighborhood, places to eat, and as a special treat, I got to visit her art gallery and studio downstairs. I was walkable to downtown where my conference took place and there were plenty of bike share rentals all around town. A great visit overall and certainly left me with a favorable opinion towards Indianapolis!

  • Krista's place was great! The location is wonderful-- right in the midst of all of Mass Ave's best attractions, and her home is comfortable, quiet, and lovely. Krista (email hidden)-- very accommodating and welcoming. We had a fantastic time staying there and would definitely stay again! I recommend highly!! I can't (email hidden) to stay.

  • This was my first time using Airbnb, and Krista proved to be as great as all of the previous comments stated. I was recently offered a new job in Indianapolis and needed a place to stay while apartment hunting. Upon arrival, Krista was great in recommending neighborhoods that would suit me, both professionally and personally. She gave me some great information about the surrounding neighborhoods as well as some cost-saving tips while here.

    In terms of the actual experience, it was great from beginning to end. The bedroom was clean and bed and pillows were very comfortable. Plenty of towels were available both in the room and in the bathroom. The living room and kitchen were designed very comfortably and I felt very relaxed in the space.

    Krista went above and beyond what I would have ever expected from an Airbnb host. She made sure to let me know a little about the city and how to navigate my way in case I got lost. She also answered her phone and messages quickly. Finally, she offered a delicious breakfast both mornings I was there before I headed out for the day to go apartment hunting.

    Overall, I would rate Krista and her place a 5-out-of-5 (higher if I could!). She is easy to get along with and very accommodating. Thanks for everything!

  • This was our first time using Airbnb, and we were so happy with our experience! Krista's apartment was delightful - clean, cozy and relaxing, with one of the best locations in Indianapolis possible. Not to mention a sweetie of a cat in Whitney! :)

    Krista herself (email hidden) - from welcoming us with iced tea, to giving us useful advice on the local area and how to make the most of the Indy 500 race day.

    When we return to Indy in the future, we'll definitely be making Krista's apartment our first port of call - so much nicer and more welcoming than a hotel!

  • Krista es una de las mejores anfitrionas que se pueden tener. Es simpática, inteligente (he aprendido mucho de ella) y muy generosa. Sus capacidades para hacerte sentir como en casa son ilimitadas.

    El vecindario tiene encanto, es muy seguro y está a pocos pasos de cualquier cosa que necesitas (tiendas, teatro, cines).

    Además, la casa es una preciosidad con un gran encanto.

    Sin lugar a dudas, recomiendo visitar Indianapolis y alojarse en la preciosa casa de Krista.

    Krista is one of the best host that can be had. It's nice, intelligent (I have learned a lot from it) and very generous. You will feel right at home.

    The neighborhood has charm, is extremely safe and is a short walk to everything you need (shops, theater, cinemas).

    Also, the house is gorgeous with a great charm.

    Undoubtedly, I recommend visiting Indianapolis and stay along the beautiful Krista house.
