We offer a very private "mother-in-law suite" of bedroom, sitting room (or second bedroom, but the two rooms are interconnected) and private bathroom. You can also enjoy your own kitchenette in an additional space which is not as private. Although our guests basically have one level of the house to themselves (1/2 flight of stairs down), the entrance foyer and stairway are shared with the rest of the house; it is not a stand alone apartment. Surcharge on more than 4 guests. Pets are negotiable.
There is a comfortable full size bed (sleeps two), dresser and a large closet in the inner bedroom. The outer room of the suite has a desk, chair, plenty of shelves and a futon couch that can be set up as a second full size bed for two more guests. A small private bathroom is immediately adjacent. The whole suite is in the lower part of the house which makes it secluded from the rest of the house, but the entrance foyer and the stairway are shared. There is a small refrigerator and cooking area in the lower part of the house for the guests convenience. In the summer you can take advantage of our patio and outdoor eating area facing into a quiet backyard.
Other then the"mother-in-law" suite, the whole lower level of the house is freely accessible together with the kitchenette and patio on the same level and laundry in the basement. The upper bedrooms are private unless you make arrangements with me directly for a larger party.
Interaction with guests
We are both working long hours so we are available only in the evenings or on weekends for face to face interactions which we enjoy whenever possible. Even if I am not around, I will be happy to help via text or email at any time during the day. Check in and check out could be self help depending on the time.

I am originally from Prague, Czech Republic but the winds of life landed me in Ohio. I love to explore new places, people and food. I work as a student science labs manager at Ohio State University where my husband is a professor of economics. Our two sons are students at the same university.
I usually travel with my husband Dean and sometime with our adult sons as well. We tend to travel by car and stay with friends whenever we can. We hope Airbnb will help us make friends in places where we do not have any yet.
We love using Airbnb as travelers and so we also became hosts. As empty nesters, we hate to see the space in our house idle. We have always welcomed friends from around the world, but Columbus does not seem to be a hot spot tourist destination (imagine that!). Airbnb gives us an opportunity to host more often.
