The SpaceSpacious, Clean, Charming 3-Bedroom, 3-Bath Townhome in Historic Little Italy, Next Door to Omaha’s Famed Old Market.
You can’t beat this anywhere downtown. It’s the best of both worlds: a quiet and relaxing oasis near all the downtown action. You will love the fully-furnished comfort and repose of my quiet, comfortable, luxurious 1780 square foot town home, which comes with high-speed cable and wireless, DVR, full kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, range, refrigerator and freezer, dining room, living room with high-end sofa, tall ceilings, three full bedrooms (five rooms in total), three full bathrooms (one with bath, all three with shower), a sweet porch with two outdoor chairs, your own attached one-car garage, washer and dryer, maple hard wood floors, maple cabinet, stainless steel appliances, granite counters, refrigerator, central heat and air, towels, linens, hairdryer, a full supply of cooking and eating utensils, coffee-maker, tea kettle, toaster, filtered water, all in an open, clean and refreshing space, with absolutely amazing neighbors.
My home is only a ten-minute walk (2 minutes by car) from the impressive galleries, bars, restaurants, boutique shops, architecture and cobbled streets of the Old Market National Historic District (whose highlights include The Boiler Room, Le Boullion, La Buvette, V. Mertz, Blue Sushi, M’s Pub, Jackson Street Booksellers, and the the famed Blue Barn Theatre, relocating soon to only a few blocks from my door). Moreover, within a few short blocks of my home, you not only have the Con Agra campus and the Durham Museum, but you also have the sundry landmarks of Little Italy (Orsi’s Italian Bakery, Cascio’s Italian Restaurant, St. Francis Cabrini Church, Santa Lucia Hall, Marino’s Italian Grocery, and the Sons of Italy Hall). Also nearby is the Omaha Rail and Commerce Historic District, Dahlman Park, the Bohemian Café, a local Cross Fit, yoga studios, massage, several groovy cafes, plus incredible views high above the mighty Missouri River.
Within a 15-minute stroll north you are at "The Link," a.k.a. the Century Link Center (home of great concerts, the annual Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders Meeting, and the nationally ranked Creighton Bluejays college basketball team), Ameritrade Stadium (home of the annual College World Series), Slowdown (a club co-owned by Omaha’s own Conor Oberst of the band Bright Eyes and Saddle Creek Records), Film Streams (which shows excellent retrospectivies, plus indie works), the Holland Performing Arts Center, Kaneko, the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, bike trails, parks, and more. And within a 3-minute drive to the south, you are at Sokol Hall (where all manner of cutting edge rock bands perform) and the Omaha Botanical Gardens. Within a five-minute drive south you are at Interstate I-80, which will take you quickly to all parts of Omaha and nearby Council Bluffs (including casinos, Lake Manawa and more). Within a seven-minute drive to the south, you are at the world-renowned Henry Doorly Zoo. Within a 7-minute drive to the north, you are at Creighton University. Within a 12-minute drive to the west, you are the University of Nebraska Medical Center and UNO.
And to top it all, you are only a 12-minute car, cab or Uber ride from the Airport.
This pet-free, nonsmoking, drug-free oasis is also near all manner of easy public transportation (there’s a bus line a few blocks away on Dodge; and there are plans to build a trolley right up nearby 10th St.). Parking is free all around the neighborhood, which is safe, evocative, and beyond cool.
I’ve been a successful Airbnb host in NYC for six years. I know what guests want. And I go out of my way to ensure that their visit is beyond compare.
If you or someone you know is clean, quiet, and highly responsible, and looking for a pristine place to stay in the heart of Omaha, please send name, phone number, the precise number of people in your party, and two references. And please make sure to fill out your airbnb profile before booking. This will speed acceptance of your reservation. Tx! Guest AccessTop secret access. No worries. Interaction with GuestsYou have the entire home to yourself., except for the downstairs bedroom (where I stay). You can use the laundry room near the basement bedroom when I am gone during the day. If you want to socialize, or if you have questions or needs, I am available. But I stay in the basement bedroom - and only pop up to use the kitchen at night - and will not bother you unless you want company. You get the best of both worlds: an onsite guide who stays to himself. I literally am almost never around. The NeighborhoodLittle Italy is an amazing, hip and historic neighborhood right next to Omaha's Old Market. See description above. Here you go: (URL HIDDEN) Getting AroundYes, within a few blocks. See description above. Other Things to NoteSee the long description above. It covers everything. I prefer a two-guest minimum, though am open to other arrangements. Just let me know and we can usually work something out. That said, no bachelor or bachelorette parties. No big shindigs. This is a very quiet neighborhood. Eight people max. You can fit two people in the two upstairs beds. Another two people can sleep on the huge long L-shaped living room couch. I also have a spare futon mattress in the storage room, if you want to bring upstairs. I stay in the basement bedroom, though am almost never around except in the evenings. And not much even then. So, if you put two people in each bed, two people on the futon, and another person or two on the couch in the living room, you can squeeze in eight people.
