Overview

About the property

Enjoy comfort & repose of my luxe 1780 sq. ft. home, just blocks from Old Market

You can’t beat this anywhere downtown. It’s the best of both worlds. Enjoy the fully-furnished comfort and repose of my quiet, comfortable, luxurious 1780 square foot home, but be right near all the major highlights of Omaha and Council Bluffs.

My lovely Little Italy home is fully outfitted 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 (plus plenty of additional free parking right nearby), washer and dryer, maple hard wood floors, maple cabinet, stainless steel appliances, granite counters, central heat and air, towels, linens, hairdryer, iron, ironing board, a full supply of cooking and eating utensils, coffee-maker, tea kettle, toaster, telephone, all in an open, clean and refreshing space, with absolutely amazing neighbors.

My home is only a seven-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, Jackson Street Booksellers, and the the famed Blue Barn Theatre (now relocated to 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 Heartland of America Park, but you also have the sundry landmarks of Little Italy (Orsi’s Italian Bakery, 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 10-15minute 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 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 famed Omaha Botanical Gardens.

Within a five-minute drive south you are at Interstate I-80, which will take you quickly to all other parts of Omaha plus 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.

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 (no matter how young), plus two references. And please make sure to fill out your profile before booking. This will speed acceptance of your reservation.

You will love it here.

About James Crotty

I prefer to keep this private. I will reveal all once a reservation is booked. For now, I will say that I am a writer for several American publications.

I look forward to hosting you in my cozy, clean centrally located, Omaha town home.

Warm Regards,

JC

James Crotty purchased this house in 2014

Why James Crotty chose Omaha

I bought this property because of its close proximity to the Old Market and all major transportation, yet it has a warm, secure, and quiet neighborhood feel. It's the best of both worlds in the hippest part of Omaha that is adding new attractions almost every month, including fabulous cafes, restaurants, a year-round farmers market, and the new location for the Blue Barn Theater.

What makes this house unique

Clean, new, near Old Market, in wonderfully hip, quiet, creative, yet old world ethnic neighborhood.

It also has a nice shower. All bathrooms come with linens and are super clean.

  • All the bedrooms are super clean, comfortable and exquisitely furnished. I have a fourth bedroom of sorts in the storage room, which has a futon, table and is workable, especially for young children, since the ceiling height is a bit less than five feet. Also, I have two beds in the downstairs bedroom: a nice elegant standard bed, plus a futon couch that is already folded out into a nice comfortable bed. So, if there are two people per bed, one can fit 10 people on these five beds. And, of course, you can bring an air mattress too, which would bring the guest total to 12 max. But, I prefer to keep the number of guests at 8-10 max. Thank you.

Great getaway for 6 girlfriends

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for staying with college girlfriends. We didn't use the kitchen, but very comfortable and well-designed place for 6 women visiting for the weekend. We wanted a comfortable base to lounge that wasn't a hotel and this worked great! Easy coordination with owner. Easy and cheap to uber to downtown.

Great Omaha Option

  • 4 of 5

The option of one unit for the entire family (multiple generations) was great. Kitchen allowed cooking meals, multiple bathrooms gave flexibility to schedule, multiple bedrooms accommodated individual family units with all areas wrapped in clean and comfortable setting.

Clean and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great except the kitchen supplies. It would be helpful to have measuring spoons, potato peeler, mixer, and more spoons. We were having a Thanksgiving dinner, however, so our cooking needs may have been more than the average guest.

We really liked that it was close to Old Market which was very fun.

Owner's Response: That's so funny. Most people say I have too many kitchen supplies. Hey, what can you do. Maybe you folks didn't see the extra set of utensils underneath the top set of utensils in the utensils drawer. Sorry about that. But, for the record, the house does have all the supplies mentioned. For future guests: just ask me during your visit if you can't find anything. Thanks.

A great home away from home to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky to find your little house in a quiet ( except for the train) neighborhood. The location was perfect for our daily adventures, and the Old Market had good restaurants, and stores to browse in day or night. The bedroom downstairs was very comfy and quiet. Upstairs has a nice cozy living area and kitchen to seat all of us. Parking for our 2 extra cars was no problem. Thank you!
