About this home

Lower level studio w/kitchenette in 1927 home w/ ideal location. Booking includes 1 visit in family-owned salt spa in next block. 2 min walk from food, shops, & bus stop. Roomy enough for a small family, private enough for couples & business travelers & dog-friendly (fully refundable deposit req'd for dogs, no cats). Unofficial off-leash dog park nearby. Low Ceiling! (height is 6'4"). Modest Kitchenette has small fridge, microwave, skillet & coffee pot.
Curtained sleeping area has queen bed.



The space



We’re glad you’re interested in our studio! Please note that we've included your occupancy taxes in the quoted price. This unique space with a locking sliding "barn-style" door offers a large living area, a curtained-off sleeping area, and a small kitchenette. The bathroom and laundry are both outside the locked apartment door (but on the same level). Both may be used by the family from time-to-time. When we have friends over (typically a Friday or Saturday night), we'll want that bathroom to be tidy since it is possible our friends will use that restroom.



*we also share the back entrance (we take a left into our home, you go down and to the right for your apartment). We are usually up and letting the dogs out that back door between 6 am and 8 am and let the dogs out before we go to bed (generally between 9 pm and 11 pm). The apartment is not sound-proof, so if you are a light sleeper, our apartment may not be a perfect arrangement for you.



*If you leave the door unlocked when you're gone, we'll assume that you don't mind us entering (to drop off some pillows or put away linens we've laundered, etc.), If the door is locked while you're away, we only enter in an emergency (i.e. electrical malfunction, flooding, etc.)



*Since this is a non-smoking unit, we request if anyone does smoke, they do so at least 50 feet from the house, and discard butts offsite or in an odor-free container/package in the green garbage can outback.



*Doors secure from inside as well for additional privacy or for use when you're sleeping. These latches prevent someone from entering even with a key (like a hotel latch)



*Since it is a sliding barn door entrance, please note that there is a sliver of a view of the room where the sliding door rolls over the top of the other door (similar to a bathroom stall). So IF someone were to stand right up against the door, they could see a small sliver of the living area (but not the sleeping area which also has a privacy curtain).



*Parking is limited to & free on the street.



*There is no kitchen, but the kitchenette has a compact fridge (probably 3 or 4 cu. ft. with no freezer), a microwave, a 3-in-1 coffeemaker, toaster oven and hot plate, and a hot/cold water dispenser. There is no running water there...just the sink in the bathroom...more than enough if you tend to eat out and just want to warm food or make a breakfast from time to time, but if you like to cook for real, the small space and lack of amenities would be frustrating.



*There is a fully refundable deposit of $150 for one dog plus an additional $50 per additional dog. Let us know if you'll be bringing a furry friend so we can make arrangements for that.



*Please ask for your salt spa gift card if you would like to take advantage of your free salt spa visit. The card has a $39 value, so it more than covers your cleaning fee!



Don’t get too excited when you see the hot tub. It has been

converted to a modified keyhole garden (but we may have some extra veggies if you get hungry!) We also have a condo in Hilton Head on Vrbo. It is called BeachMore. You can also read about two of our other businesses if you search for Phia Salon or Philosophi Salon. Let us know if you need more help.


Once you book, you’ll be issued a code for the rear door that you can use for the duration of your stay. We ask that the exterior door stay locked at all times (you can always re-enter with your code). The key for your studio will be in the lock which you can use as you desire.



Guest access



Electronic lock on back door of house gives entrance to shared space. Private lock on door of bedroom/sittingroom/kitchenette area.



Interaction with guests



We own businesses and often work out of our home, so at times we are available for guests. Sometimes we may have time to socialize, most of the time we'll be busy. Always open to letting dogs run together in the yard if guests are amenable.



Other things to note



PLEASE NOTE: Though this is a lower level, it is a dry basement unless Columbus floods. When we receive flood-warning level downpours, we may get some dampness or water. For this reason, if our guests are out during a downpour, we reserve the right to enter the locked area without notice to ensure there is no issue or to dry up water and start up a humidifier if there is a leak.

    Very Comfortable.

    My wife and daughter stayed over the weekend for a mother/daughter getaway and some shopping. They had a great time. They had nothing but good to say about the apartment and the host. Thanks for a great stay.

    Very clean, comfortable & had all the amenities I needed for the week stayed.

    My stay in Columbus was an R&R for me. I pick the right place. Even though you could hear the walking upstairs it wasn’t really distracting after the first day. It’s in a quiet, colonial style house and neighborhood (they live across the street from a small castle house). It’s a beautiful place to walk (early Sept). Starbucks is a two minute walk or a ten minute walk depending on which way you go. They provide coffee, their coffee pot only make 4 cups at a time.... They own a Salt Spa and offer a free one (two minutes walking distance)... I highly recommend using it, very calming and relaxing. There’s also a massage chair in the living room. If you spill something let them know, they have a natural way to get stains out that works. They have a beautiful pup, she got along fine with my service dog. They have a nice deck and a tented area w a table in the back that are both very nice and comfortable. My overall score is a 4-1/2 ⭐️ ‘s. The Bella’s were wonderful hosts, left you alone unless you asked for something and they helped out with all my needs. I highly recommend this property to anyone staying in the Columbus area.

    Hospitable hosts, quiet location.

    Our hosts were hospitable and helpful. The neighborhood is upscale and quiet. Lots of restaurants on the nearby main road. The rooms were large and the low ceilings were not too low for my 6'1" husband. The bathroom, with shower massage in the shower stall, was spacious and we basically had it too ourselves. The bed was a little firm for us, but we often find the same in hotels. Everything was clean. There was a scented oil infuser in the room. We could hear the footfalls of our hosts above, but it was not overly loud or disturbing, and not at odd hours. The kitchenette area has a purified water cooler/dispenser, but there is no sink there for dish washing. We had to ask for help getting the TV going, and for the WiFi access, which we did not bring with us. Perhaps a few added instructions for these would be good. Overall, this was a good value.

    Great location

    The neighborhood was terrific for walking. There were several parks nearby that were suitable for walking the dog. We were close to the attractions we wanted to see during our short visit. The only reason it was not a 5 star was do the noise of the people walking upstairs at 11:00 pm. All in all it was a good alternative to staying in a hotel as we started our trip to the southwest.

    Just okay..

    While overall the property was fine, that’s really all it was. The steps down from the outside we very steep. The shared bathroom was adequate but the shower was moldy. There was also no soap for the shower. The apartment itself didn’t feel secure at all. The “barn door” seemed like it was a homemade space filler. There was no real lock and to “lock” the door at night from the inside we had to use carabiners. The “outside” lock from the shared space into the apartment was a master lock. The whole door moved and felt as if at any point, anyone could push hard and it would fall over. There was a huge comfortable couch, and giant TV with awesome surround system ...that had like 10 channels, most of which were random old shows networks. If you brought your own chrome cast or anything, you could use it but, who brings their own? The massage chair was ancient, like had a cassette player in it, and was noisy and uncomfortable for anything over a 15 mins. The bed was comfortable but the bedding seemed old. There was literally a sign that said “Don’t worry, the linens have been washed but our cat likes to lay around a lot so there might be hair” Seriously?? And yes, I found lots of hair, not just of the feline kind. The kitchenette was no such thing. It was a mini fridge and a microwave. There was no running water or a sink. Also two plates, 2 spoons and 2 knives. Overall it felt like it was your old grandmas basement that she lets you sleep in when you come to town but you’d rather stay at a hotel. It worked for our two nights but I wouldn’t stay again. Mike, however was very nice and easy to talk to.
