Where you’ll be

Columbus, Ohio, United States

Olde Towne East is a charming residential neighborhood with history around every corner. In the late 1800's and early 1900's some of Columbus' wealthiest and most influential citizens built beautiful homes on Bryden Road. Technically we are located in the Franklin Park Neighborhood but everyone around Columbus usually refers to the entire area as Olde Towne.

I’ve been an Airbnb host since 2014 and since I love to travel I have also been a guest with other hosts in the US and internationally. People always ask if it’s weird to have strangers come and stay in my home with me and the answer has always been “not once!” I really love having the opportunity to share my home and city of Columbus Ohio with travelers from all over the world. So far I have welcomed people from 6 out of 7 continents coming from more than 50 different countries. When I bought my home in 2008 it had broken plumbing, boarded up windows, and had been the ugly house on the block for a long time. It’s taken a lot of time and patience but a house that was forgotten and uninhabitable became a warm and charming place I like to call home. I’m proud of the work I’ve done to bring a historic building back to life and update it in a way that kept much of the original character. Be careful asking questions about the process because I may not stop telling stories for a while. In the fall of 2019 I adopted a husky/boxer puppy. Her name is Juneau and she is super friendly and loves welcoming guests to our home.
