Indy's #1 AirBnB on Hip Mass Ave

Apartment - Entire home/apt · N Park Ave, Indianapolis, IN 46202-3428, United States

The Space

Why stay somewhere without a reputation? I am Indy's #1 AIRBNB Residence with proven track record with over 90 reviews and Indiana's only AirBnB SuperHost!

Read my rave reviews and see why THIS is where you should stay in Indianapolis. My Park Avenue residence will put you on the corner of the very hip and trendy Mass Avenue with restaurants, coffee shops, restaurants and all the attractions of downtown Indianapolis outside your door! Less than a mile to the Conseco Fieldhouse, the Convention Center, Monument Circle and the Canal - Lucas Oil Stadium (Colts), IUPUI's campus,the National Institute for Fitness and Health (NIFS), Clarian, Methodist Hospital and Eli Lilly's World Headquarters are less than another mile away. Only 3 miles from the world famous Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the Indianapolis 500!!!

Former guests include Broadway Across America cast members performing at the Murat Temple two blocks away, professional athletes from Europe, animators who worked with George Lucas on Star Wars here for an iMax convention - summer law interns, med students doing a rotation, Lilly interns doing externships....they all LOVE the condo and location. Neighbors include Jimmy Buffet's manager and a Brazilian winner of both the Indianapolis 500 and Dancing with the Stars! Many professional athletes and members of various Indianapolis 500 teams maintain residences within a 2-3 block radius. They all appreciate the fine restaurants and shops, as well as the convenience of the Chatham Arch/Mass Ave neighborhood located in the heart of the arts district and DIRECTLY on Indianapolis' new and already world famous CULTURAL BIKE/WALKING TRAIL - literally outside the door of this magnificent condo.

The condo:

Originally built as a two bedroom shotgun home, this condo has undergone a renovation that landed it on the cover of Indianapolis Home Magazine's Inaugural Edition. It is the ultimate in urban living on Hip Mass Ave.

The front of the condo contains living/dining/kitchen - then a long hall with access to the kitchen, laundry and bath - and then a second large area, which was formerly a master bedroom and a guest bedroom, has been opened up, with all interior walls removed. The area is divided by a cubed book case with a KING SIZE BED on one side and a work area/den on the other (it is ALL open to each other - see pictures and captions).

There is also a SEPARATE room - a walk in closet - which has been converted into a small Van Gogh bedroom with a twin bed, table/lamp and chair. It has a door and is completely private, but small.

Please note the accommodation is for three people in two beds (1 king, 1 twin) taking into consideration two of those people will be in the king bed. I do NOT have three separate beds. As this has come up in the past, I am posting this clarification.

One bathroom. Completely renovated condo owned by local interior designer. Very nicely decorated. Please read my reviews, as they address everything from sleeping arrangements to local amenities to bus service, to being in town for major events (Final Four!) etc. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions.

The rate is $186 per night for up to three guests. Because the condo is open plan and does not have separate bedrooms, you will have the condo fully to yourselves and I will sleep off-site. Rates are preferential for extended stay guests (7 nights or more $139/night), monthly rate is $1954 ($69/night). All rentals longer than 30 days include on site private garage in a gated lot.

PLEASE NOTE: Actively looking for subleases in March, mid-May, summer and September 2014.

Airport Pick up/Drop off - Please contact me after making reservation, but I can usually pick up or drop off guests at the Indianapolis International Airport. $25 flat fee for up to 3 people per trip to airport.

Nationally acclaimed BLUEBEARD is a 5 minute drive away. MARSH SUPERMARKET, 3 blocks down on Mass Ave, has everything you need to stock up the fridge as well as a full recycling center. The Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library, NCAA HAll of Champions, the IU Natatorium (International and Olympic trial competitions) independent shops (MASS AVE TOYS, SILVER IN THE CITY) are a couple of blocks further - and only .75 miles from the Circle in downtown Indianapolis! You CAN'T BEAT this location!!! Easy for sporting events, concerts, conventions at the convention center, business downtown and Lilly campus. Quick drive to Goose the Market (one of Bon Appetit's top 10 sandwich shops in America - try the Batali!), the Indianapolis Museum of Art, the Children's Museum of Indianapolis, and Broad Ripple.

    April 2014
  • Beautiful place,a+ location, would gladly stay again If working in Indy again

    March 2014
  • This is a very comfortable place to stay. I highly recommend it. Price is a good value, location is fantastic if downtown Indy is where you want to be.

    December 2012
  • We loved Matt's beautiful home and his gracious hospitality. We ate our way along Massachusetts Avenue, so that was fun. A lovely place to stay in an interesting neighborhood...what more do you need?

    November 2012
  • Matt is great. This is the second time I have stay at his wonderful place. As before, it was perfectly kept. The location is great as well. In a very safe and private area of Indy. A block from the start of Mass Ave makes for a nice walk through the cultural district of Indy. About a 20 min walk to City Center/Monument.

    Again, can't thank Matt enough for his hospitality.

    November 2012
  • My husband and I traveled to Indy to watch our daughter compete in the National FFA Convention. The hotel rates were CRAZY HIGH so we turned to AirBnB to find a "cheaper" solution. This was our first time using the site so I was a bit apprehensive. Then I found Matt! His condo was 1/2 the cost of the downtown hotels, the condo was 1.4 miles from where our daughter was staying with her chapter, and it gave us the availability to get away from the 53,000 other kids that were invading the city! Matt was fantastically informative, patient with all of my questions and concerns and made sure that he answered each and every one of them fully and in an extremely timely manner. He was very easy to reach and communicate with. Upon arrival, Matt met us outside so the cab driver could find his way, brought us into the condo and explained everything in great detail. He even ran to the grocery store for us to get us bottled water! What a fantastic host! The neighborhood was quiet and safe and close to everything. If we ever find our way back to Indy, we will definitely be looking to stay with Matt! Thanks for everything!!!!

    October 2012
  • Matt was very responsive and maintained communication prior to our arrival and throughout our stay. He was very respectful of our privacy, the apartment was welcoming, clean and attractive, and we would definitely stay there again. Great location, great host.

    October 2012
  • Matt's apartment was not just a place to stay, it was a amazing experience! not just because of the wonderful host , perfect location and the great neighborhood but mainly because of how homy and peaceful the place is, an instantaneous home away from home, filled with memories and warm vibes, it is like walking into a sanctuary!
    Matt is very friendly and easy to communicate with, was very flexible about checking in and out and provided great insights about Indy.
    Definitely will stay there again.

    September 2012
  • Matt was incredibly friendly and responsive and helpful, and the condo was beautiful and within walking distance to everything on Mass Ave. We cooked in the well-stocked kitchen, enjoyed the night life, and had no complaints. I can't wait to come back!

    September 2012
  • What an amazing space and a wonderful host. We only stayed in Matt's condo for one night but we wish it could have been longer. Located just off a great stretch off Mass Ave, we loved everything it had to offer. Matt was also a really interesting, well travelled guy we could have spent hours looking at the fantastic pictures and books he has in the condo.

I have travelled to approximately 70 countries on every continent but Antarctica. I especially love foreign visitors! I consider the world my home. I am a very congenial host. The condo is open concept. I can arrange to leave breakfast or leave you on your own - there are several great breakfast places and coffee shops on my street. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions - I am pretty low key and happy to help you enjoy your visit as much as possible.
