About this listing
Furnished short term housing available by week or by month for visitors to the University Circle area schools and hospitals. Walking distance from shops, grocery, restaurants, live jazz music. 10 minute drive to UH & CC.
This is a very spacious & soulful 2nd Floor, 2 bedroom apartment. We knocked the wall down between the kitchen and the dining room, and this move really opened the space nicely, so, the chef is not cut off from the liveliness of her/his guests.
During the re-hab project, we resurrected the fire place, so it is working and it adds so much charm to the place.
It has a covered balcony which is excellent for meals outside and evening cocktails.
Apartment features cable, wi-fi, includes utilities, very comfortable-quiet & non-smoking environment and laundry .
Certain services, including grocery shopping, laundry, meal preparation and transportation can be arranged.
You will have access to the laundry machines in the basement, on site parking and a storage cabinet in the event that you have a lot of gear.

Brooks was very attentive and flexible during the move in. I had an unexpected delay (1 day) on my arrival to Cleveland, and he worked with me to meet up and get keys/ show the apartment. The apartment is fantastic and the location is very desirable. If I find myself in Cleveland again for business I will be contacting Brooks without a doubt.
Brooks was very welcoming. We appreciated the opportunity to have an early morning arrival after coming in from the West Coast on a red-eye flight. He was attentive to issues we had with parking and reimbursed us for an unexpected ticket (please note there is no overnight parking on the street), as well as internet connection problems. He checked in with us during our stay and was very responsive. I would recommend him as a host.
Future guests should be aware that this unit is a second floor apartment and there are permanent tenants above and below. We had no issues with this and there was not excessive noise, but we did hear the neighbors in the mornings and at night. Just a good thing to know going into the rental.
The location is very close to Case Western University, as well as all of the Cleveland Clinic facilities. There is an excellent bakery at the east end of the street, and the apartment is close to Cedar-Fairmount, which has a close Starbucks, as well as another bakery and nice breakfast/lunch restaurant. The location was ideal for our purposes in visiting Cleveland.
Brooks made me feel very welcome upon arriving at the apartment. The apt was as pictured and clean. I welcomed Brooks' weekly check-ins to make sure things were going well. I had no major issues during my stay. My only complaint is that I requested a laundry basket as the W/D are in the basement. Brooks said he would get one to the apt the same day I made the request. One week later he said he had forgotten and would get it there as soon as he could. I never did see a laundry basket. Not a major thing but it's irritating when you are told it's not a problem and there is no follow-through.
Brooks sent me several emails prior to my visit to make sure that he was able to meet us to make a nice transition and to go over anything with the apt. He was VERY responsive to texts and emails and was very conscientious in making sure we were enjoying our stay while there.
Brooks was incredibly accommodating and helpful. He always checked in to see if we needed anything and made sure we were very comfortable. The apartment was very clean, which we really appreciated. The neighborhood is nice, with relatively hip restaurants, coffee shops and a wine bar nearby.
What a great host Brooks & his family were! We traveled 1200 miles & was so pleased with the beautiful apartment. Brooks was so nice working with us to get a place to stay. He was vary attentive throughout our time in Cleveland & made sure we had everything we needed. We would highly recommend Brooks as a host.
It was a great neighborhood and a nice, basic, safe, clean space which is what we wanted. Brooks was a super host, checking in to make sure our needs were met without ever being intrusive. I would recommend this to anyone.

About the Host, Brooks
From our years as landlords, my wife, Mika and I have made our places home for hundreds of people; we love the friendships that we have created and we love taking care of people. We are very health oriented, we eat organically, we have a beautiful vegetable garden and we are very physically active; Mika is a yoga instructor, 2 kids are college athletes and 1 kid is a wilderness guide.
We feel that we have created wonderful spaces at our properties, and, influenced by what we were hearing from transplant families, we felt that we would like to provide healing, healthy and comfortable spaces, on a short term basis for anyone attracted to what we've created. We do this FULL TIME. Our guests include lots of Cleveland Clinic and University Hospital people, both patient families as well as md's, people between houses / jobs, film makers, travelling nurses, visitors, etc.
If we can't help you in time, we will refer to our comrades.
