Having lived in Omaha previously, it is a place I like to return to from time-to-time, especially when I feel the need to slow down, unplug, rest, relax, reflect, and restore my spirit. When I first saw Jerry's listing and how cute, well-located, and affordable it was, it seemed almost too good to be true, but it was! So I snatched it up for a winter week during the holidays!
Jerry was incredibly accommodating, responsive, and attentive. I was arriving very late in the evening on Christmas Eve, and I didn't want to arrive like some Dicken's ghost, in the middle-of-the-night, disturbing family evenings and holidays. Jerry was extremely gracious and hospitable in arranging for a local friend of mine to get the keys to his place, so I wouldn't need to disturb them. But he made sure I knew that if I have any problem at all, that I absolutely could reach out 24/7.
When I arrived late my first evening, everything was picture perfect and exactly as described. It was like pulling back the veil and being transported to a slice of a former life. Every detail - the furniture, the decor, the ambiance... just to die for, especially if you appreciate vintage style and experience! Any apprehension you may have about staying in a vintage condo will be laid to rest when you see everything you need is included - a full kitchen, full bath, cozy bedroom, and fast wifi, TV, and more, if that's to your enjoyment - truly a full home to enjoy for however long you need. And the building was peaceful, quiet, and almost still, with many nearby parking options and along several bus routes.
Location - ideal. Within minutes of the Old Market district and Downtown Omaha, in the heart of Midtown Crossing. Within a block or two are a pharmacy, a grocery store, a movie theatre, and plenty of restaurants and bars, many with a distinctly local feel and flavor. And for everything else, you have very easy access to the interstate.
I cannot say enough good things about the condo, the set up, the location, the value, and of course the host, Jerry. If you're looking for a great stay in Omaha, this is it!
