Hello Fellow Traveler and Future Friend!

I have one clean, very private, basic room to let that can accommodate two people. Clean, basic private bathroom with shower and bathtub down the hall. The bed is comfortable, the sheets are tight and clean, and there's a window and plenty of closet space.

If there are more than two people in your party, I have a spare overflow bedroom with a super comfy airbed with all linens that can also be rented for $15 per person per night.

Guest Access

Guests will typically have their own full bathroom with bathtub and shower. (On rare occasions, there is a third guest who will share that bathroom, but it's never posed a problem for guests.) I have my own bathroom and will never get in your way.

You are welcome to use my kitchen and anything you need to prepare food. In the summer, you can use my gas grill.

You can use my yoga/artist salon to meditate, exercise, or practice music. (I've had some musicians make recordings here!) The yoga salon also has some simple workout equipment and a television with roku player and free fitness channels.

Interaction with Guests

I am happy to sit and chat when I have time, but mostly I will be out of sight, out of mind.

The Neighborhood

My neighborhood is safe and quiet and convenient to fun parts of the city, such as Broad Ripple and downtown.

I am situated on the NW side of Indianapolis, and it's very easy to get downtown (abt 15-20 min drive), to Broad Ripple (15 minute drive, 30 min bike ride), and to Carmel (15 minutes).

Close to Eagle Creek Park, Indianapolis Museum of Art and Hundred-Acre Wood, Holliday Park, and the Central Canal Tow Path biking and running trail, and YMCA.

Nearby are some low key, authentic ethnic restaurants, including Vietnamese, El Salvadorian, Indian, Iranian, Ethiopian, Cuban, and Venezuelan, and a good Mexican restaurant.

While you won't find any upscale martini bars within walking distance, Broad Ripple is a quick drive away, just about 15 minutes.

Basic shopping: Trader Joe's, Tropical Foods, Costco, Kroger, Mexican supermarket, Goodwill, and an army surplus store.

My neighborhood is safe for walking and running, and there are bike trails all around.

Getting around

Close to I-65 and I-465 for road warriors!

Easy drive downtown and to Carmel.

Free parking in my driveway.

Buses: IndyGo Route 34 is 0.7 miles from my home.

Other Things to Note

For an additional fee and advance notice, I would be happy to escort your party to the best local craft brewers. I have empty growlers on hand, so you can choose your favorite brew, have it filled, and enjoy it at the Beat Lounge.

If you are road-weary after a day of travel, I can make you a light and healthy candle-lit intimate dinner on your arrival for an additional nominal fee and advance notice.

House specialties are pasta (vegetarian available), homemade focaccia, and salad, plus a split of red wine; or salmon croquettes, hot vegetable, and whole grain side dish plus a split of house red wine.

In warm months, you can eat under the twinkling stars and tiki torches on my deck.

I can also arrange a healthy breakfast for you for an additional nominal fee and advance notice. House special is Irish oats with fruit, honey and geek yogurt and coffee or tea.

At night I offer an assortment of complimentary herbal, green, and traditional teas upon request.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Amy was the perfect host! I needed a place last minute and she was super kind to accommodate me! Her home is beautiful and my room was very comfortable. Amy was very easy going and kind! I would definitely book with her again!

    April 2014
  • The place is lovely! Good location close to most everything we were looking for in Indy. Also the most wonderful pets.

    March 2014
  • Amy's place was perfect for my short stay in Indy! She was very accommodating and helpful. The room was clean and very big and private. If I'm ever in Indy again, I'm staying here! Also met a fellow traveling musician who was staying there at the same time which made for some great conversation. Thanks Amy!

    Response from Amy:

    Thanks, Bekka! Glad you enjoyed your stay!

  • It was a great stay with Amy. There was a schedule glitch but Amy made it possible for me to stay with her anyways. She was a gracious host and I enjoyed her travel stories since we've both been to Chile.

  • First experience with AirBnB and it was wonderful. Amy is a wonderful and welcoming host. It was a last minute thing and I got a reply almost instantaneously. I owe Amy one for that. Although she already had guests over she made quick arrangements to accommodate me for the night and I moved to the actual bedroom the night after it. The aura of the house was very pleasant. The room was clean, quiet and very comfortable. Her pets were fun to have around. All in all it was a great experience. Thanks Amy!

  • Amy was a fantastic host. The room was clean, comfortable, quiet, and a really good size. Her neighborhood is beautiful and just a quick drive away from downtown. I didn't have to drive longer than 15 minutes to get anywhere I wanted to go. Having a private bathroom was wonder. Her dog and cat are well-behaved and extremely snuggly. Amy obviously loves Indianapolis and she knows it like the back of her hand, so she's a great person to stay with if you're looking for recommendations from a local on what to do and where to eat. My only regret about this visit is that I didn't have time to check out all the cool places she suggested! I wouldn't hesitate to stay with her during my next visit to Indy.

    August 2013
  • Amy was a very gracious host, and the house is very nicely appointed. The bed was very comfy and everything was clean and orderly. She has a very sweet and mellow dog, Primo, and a nearly invisible cat, but it was nice having them around as well. She accommodated my schedule and even let me make use of the performance space! :) Recommended!

    March 2013
  • Amy is so friendly, warm, and generous. Her house is lovely, and in a very safe neighborhood. I felt very warmly welcomed by Amy and her pets. : ) I only needed a place to stay for the night, but Amy was more than accommodating, the room I stayed in was beautiful, and I had my own private bathroom as well. I would highly recommend Amy and her home as a place to stay for any traveler and would absolutely stay with her again if I was ever back in the area.

    February 2013
  • This is from Anu who stayed with Katherine at Amy's place. I've been hosting on airbnb for 1.5 years and this is my first time being a guest. Amy is amazing.

    Her home is in one of the best neighborhoods I saw in Indy. The room is cozy and isolated from the other rooms. We had our own full bathroom. I had parking in the driveway. She let us use the kitchen and was very nice and offered us coffee.

    But the coolest thing for me, being a musician, was seeing her bonus room as place where she hosts musicians.

    She's only been doing this for a couple of months, but I know will be a top airbnb'r soon. I highly recommend staying here.

Hi future friend! My name is Amy. I work IT by day and write and produce plays at night. I love to surround myself with the "fringe" artists here in my town--everyone from actors to dancers to musicians. I'm also an indie music promoter and a concert reviewer. I can't stand staying in one place too long! If I don't have the luxury of traveling, then I open my home as a AirBnb host and live vicariously through other travelers. I've hosted travelers from near and far, from writers to photographers to actors to musicians to sculptors to opera singers. I love traveling internationally, but since air travel has become such a hassle, I have spent the last few years traveling in my own country! I love San Francisco, Key West, and the Smokey Mountains. I also love the Great Lakes! I am soon headed to Alaska, Vancouver, Washington, and Oregon. I like to run, bike, hash (it's an international running group), camp, play with my best friend--that is my handsome dog, and shop for old record albums. I also have an intimate concert venue in my home. If you're an artist with a following and CDs, hit me, and we can work out a concert/lodging deal! If you love music indie music, especially stuff you've never heard of before, then maybe you'll get lucky and stay with me some night when we have a concert scheduled.
