Covid-19, A SPECIAL NOTE (including number of guests): We want you to know we are doing our part to help our guests stay healthy and safe. There’s a reason why all of our 800+ reviews rate us 5 stars on cleanliness! We have taken it even further by staying up to speed with all cleaning recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). As an extra precaution to provide safer accommodations, we are limiting the number of people who come in and out of our properties. Please keep in mind that we’re requiring that all guests to respect local and state guidelines about gatherings and social interactions. You may not bring in any more guests than what you have registered for. This includes visitors. Again, the number of people in our home must match the number you registered for (with host approval). We require that you use hand sanitizer and wash hands each time you enter our home. Reach out if you have any questions or special requests.

The Slanted House is perfect for a small group to solo travelers, business trips, families with kids, and furry friends. You’ll feel like you’re at home with a fully-stocked kitchen, out door patio, Netflix and Apple TV, Alexa through out, drinks, coffee, snacks and more!

This suite is located on the first floor of a two-family and allows for super easy on-street parking right in front of the home. There is relaxing patio space located alongside the row house for sipping cocktails or coffee.

BE A GEEK in this Smart Home and control the Hue Lighting, limitless music, and house temperature with your personal assistant Alexa. There is also extremely high-speed wireless internet and a multi-port USB station for charging up devices. For your ENTERTAINMENT, we offer free Netflix and Apple TV. Feel free to log into own accounts too (Hulu, HBO, Sling, Amazon Prime, etc. All the apps are there! Note: we don't have cable but we do have an antenna if you need local channels.

Snuggle up in a gel-infused memory foam queen-size bed in the BEDROOM or chill on the living room couch which pulls out to a full-size sleeper sofa. There is a single air bed available too if extra space is needed. Then ask Alexa to help you drift away with sleep sounds or soft music. There is a desk in the bedroom for private workspace.

The LIVING ROOM has a 55-inch Apple TV, games, puzzles, and toys for the kiddos. We provide the popcorn!

In the BATHROOM we provide all towels, linens, and toiletries like shampoo, conditioner, toothbrush / toothpaste, and bath gel so you don’t have to tote them. Enjoy the personalized tall shower with many unique settings such as waterfall and massage.

The KITCHEN is decked out with everything you’ll need for preparing meals at home. If it’s not there, we want to know so we can add it! Take a peek through our cabinets and drawers - you’ll find spices and herbs, pots ’n pans, baking dishes, cutting boards, personal smoothie blender, knives, and many other helpful items. We have a high chair available upon request.

As hosts of 3 other Airbnbs and approaching 1,000 5-star reviews, we always hear “you’ve thought of everything!”. Let us know if we didn't ...

Need MORE space? "Always Friday" is located upstairs (sleeps 4) so you could rent the entire home! We also own "The Tres House" and "The House of Liebe", just one street over, for larger groups of up to 6.

Family of 4 from the Greater Cincinnati Area! Doug is an amazing film-maker, composer and sound guy; Vicky was a top podcaster on iTunes and blogger for 10 yrs focusing on "What Really Matters"; Aidan is our charming, handsome guy - a senior in HS, foodie, chef, tech-geek and all-around-good-kid; and Ellie is our adorable little princess - nick-named "Friday" for believing every day can be Friday when you're doing what you love. She loves music, her friends, art, pets and school. And then there is Granny (a.k.a. Linda) who is #5 to our Airbnb Venture. Granny is retired and loves to help at the Airbnbs when she can. It's her FREE Thornton gym membership. She loves meeting guests and takes as much pride in hosting our homes as the rest of us. We all LOVE food, movies, travel, people, and the city we live in! We have been landlords for over 25 years and our first Airbnb (House of Liebe - love in German) was the first home we bought together in Covington. The other half of this historic two-family is our other Airbnb (The Tres House - tres for three floors and our third Airbnb). It has been so much fun and successful we opened up two others, just a street over (The Slanted House and Always Friday - of course named after Ellie). And yes, The Slanted House does lean a little to the west if you are looking at it from across the street. So yes - we love hosting on Airbnb and always beautify-ing (a.k.a. cleaning) our homes to share with others.
