Enjoy full use of this cozy and freshly updated two-bedroom cottage located in the Broad Ripple/Midtown cultural district. A convenient location and thoughtful amenities make this home a perfect choice for visiting family, business travel & weekend getaways. We offer walkable, bike-friendly access to markets, nightlife, and restaurants. Nearby attractions include locally-owned boutiques, galleries, eateries, and breweries. We’re close to The Monon Trail, Broad Ripple Village & Butler University.

The space

This snug duplex home boasts original hardwood floors, cozy rooms, a small but complete kitchen, and beds for 4+ (1 queen, 1 full, a small futon by request).

The home includes a furnished living room, a kitchen with a cafe-style table, a smaller bedroom and a larger bedroom. The home has central air & heat. Large grassy backyard with chairs & a picnic table. (Note, the yard is not fenced.) A washer/dryer available in the basement. There is dual-speed WiFi, and an Internet-capable Roku TV (you must sign-in to your favorite streaming services) with an HD broadcast antenna for local stations. (No cable or satellite service.)

Guest access

Guests will have the whole apartment. We keep two older, classic bicycles in the garage for guest use. You'll not win any races or conquer any trails on them, but you can toodle around town to your heart's content as they've been restored and tuned up.

Interaction with guests

We can meet you for move-in, move-out as seems good to you, but we usually just provide instructions and lockbox access. (Self-serve!) During your stay you will have the place to yourself.

Other things to note

We've stayed with AirBnB hosts in London, Montreal, Massachusetts, Santa Fe, Vermont, and other places but we're coming up on 3 years that we've been hosting. We like to pick-up tips from other hosts and travelers, so please offer suggestions to make your stay more pleasant, and please leave feedback if you had a great stay.

The base pricing is for 2 adults. For add'l adults please add $20/night per person. If you have kids with you, just price it based on the adults.

House Rules
No smoking
No parties or events
Check in is anytime after 4PM

House rules are simple: Guests are expected to leave the home as they found it and respect the guest on the other side of the duplex by keeping the music and voice levels at reasonable levels after 9:00pm. Guests are asked to wash their own dishes, strip the beds and gather used towels in a laundry bag, and carry their trash to the outside bins. We ask for no smoking in the home, and no throwing of butts in the yard. Dogs are welcome, but we expect you to pick up after 'em. And....enjoy your visit!! Please let us know if we can do anything to make your stay better. We aren't on site, but we aren't far and will respond if we possibly can.

Very nice little cottage in a good area for food and drink options, easy to walk to one of the city's fun neighborhoods.

The cottage is nicely laid out and decorated. It is most convenient to shopping and restaurants - we were a 2 minute walk from both! We were in town for GenCon, which is a very crowded and stimulating affaire, and were happy to be able to drive a short distance to get away from it all and rest quietly in the evenings. William is a considerate and attentive host, without being present. Check in is easy, and William contacted us via the AirBnB messaging site to make sure we were OK. I highly recommend this location for an Indianapolis stay.

This is a hidden gem in a great location. It's close to Broad Ripple and Butler, with a grocery store across the street. We were pleasantly surprised with the fresh fruit and additional groceries stocked in the pantry and refrigerator. William was the perfect host, checking in to see if we needed anything.

William's place has an awesome central location. It's walking distance to some great restaurants, the Fresh Market and is a short drive to the Indiana State Fair, Children's Museum, downtown and many other great spots in Indy. William was a breeze to communicate with, quick to reply and was willing to accommodate a late check out that turned into an additional night stay. A few things to note about the home; it is older than it appears in the photos, there is not a microwave available, there was a "stale" odor that was quickly alleviated by the candles that were available. We did notify William in regards to the home not being as clean as we would have liked due to pet hair throughout. He was apologetic and assured that it would be addressed for future guests. Overall, we were very happy with William's place and would stay again if in the area.
