Here are some places I would recommend in the area:

– One block south is Tinker straight which is one of the top restaurants in town and pretty reasonably priced.

– The canal is a 10 to 20 minute walk away and features a beautiful walk. If you want to grab a bite there I would recommend the burgerhous restaurant right on the canal. They have wonderful burgers and also some good pescetarian and vegetarian options.

– Next I would recommend the downtown monuments which are off of Meridian Street going south.

– Mass Ave is the entertainment center of downtown and features many wonderful restaurants and shops. It is about a 20 minute walk or 4 minute drive.

– Some more great restaurants I would recommend are Mesh on Mass Ave., Saint Elmo's if you really want to go all out Union 50, and there are many more great restaurants.

– For Indian food: Haveli, Thai food: Bangkok, Mediterranean food: Ali Baba, Chinese:Best Taste China, Mexican: La parada.

About Gilia Chazan

I am a world traveler, holistic practitioner and trained as a scientist. I also do some real estate investing. I love traveling to new places and stay there for a while to get to know new countries.

Gilia Chazan purchased this house in 2011

Why Gilia Chazan chose Indiana

I bought this house into thousand 11 and poured my heart and soul into it. Now that I live in this house sporadically I really enjoy all the design detail that I put into it. The house was built in 1872, right after the several more. I designed it to be a combination of old and modern and extremely convenient.

What makes this house unique

This is a historic neighborhood right near downtown Indianapolis. This is a beautiful walkable neighborhood and a 20 minute walk from downtown. There is ample street parking .

Beautiful historic home!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house is immaculate. It is very close to everything in Indy. The owner was awesome! We were attending a national swim meet at the IUPUI and the location of the house was perfect. We even walked a couple of times.

The house is very spacious and we were all able to eat together and gather together to relax after each swim session.

I would certainly recommend this property.

We will be renting again when we come back to Indy.

Thank you!

Beautiful house with an Amazing Hostess!!

  • 5 of 5

The Downtown Villa was perfect for our family and friends. The location makes the house central and within 10-15 minutes of everything in Indianapolis. The house is huge with plenty of room for several families (we had 3 families at the house with 2 other friends). The first floor kitchen/dining room/living room is a great place to hang out, and the bedrooms were very comfortable and very clean! In particular, the master bedroom and bathroom are very luxurious, and the top floor bedroom is the perfect place for a family with older kids or a big sleepover. Probably more importantly than the house is that Gilia, the owner, is an amazing hostess. She is incredibly responsive (usually got replies within a few minutes of sending an email - I have no idea how she does it), and is completely committed to making your stay perfect. We needed a few airbeds for our group, and they were there waiting for us when we got to the house, fully inflated. One time, we didn't even request a small household item, and she took it upon herself to ship it to us by Amazon. (Thanks Gilia!) I really can't express how great of a hostess Gilia is, and I am positive that if you book her house, you will be really glad you did.

Great house for big groups - totally updated and very nice.

  • 5 of 5

This very large updated home was perfect for our large group, open kitchen to dinning room and living room allowed for socializing. Nearly every area of this house was brand new. Great location, within walking distance to everything Indy or an Uber drive got us around in minutes. Neighborhood is being revitalized, we felt very safe and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this rental for anyone coming to Indy.

Average for the price

  • 3 of 5

House was nice. Owner has cameras all over the place, which was weird, though she assured me she didn't watch or record. Kitchen had grease on stove and cold coffee in pot. Since owner stayed and unloaded dishwasher, I figure she was running late with prep - but for price point, I'd recommend a cleaning service. One of the bathrooms was dirty - I even searched for cleaning supplies. Mater bedroom is lovely, but again, housekeeping average. So, house nice, owner nice, experience average. We felt like we were kicking her out of her home.

Owner's Response: Dear Margaret, thank you for letting me know and I am sorry your experience wasn't up to what I aim for my guests to have. The security cameras have been removed. There were actually only 2, and could have easily been unplugged, which I mentioned to you and you said you did not need. I'm not sure why you felt there were many, you may have confused the thermostat sensors for cameras. I do have a cleaning service that usually keeps the place immaculate, I have addressed the issue and it will not happen again. I did have a group leave that day and that is why I was running a little late. I will take note of your comments and make sure this never happens again. If you visit the area again I hope you stay in the Villa and I promise that the place will be in immaculate condition for your enjoyment!

Great location and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our youth group was participating in a mission trip for a week, and the owner was awesome to work with and so accommodating for us. The house was perfect for our needs with a sitting area, large bedrooms, and a kitchen. It didn't take us long to get anywhere in the city. I would recommend this property and would book again!

Great location for IUPUI medical school and downtown

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the comfort and well designed rooms for celebrating our sons graduation from Medical school. Especially wonderful gathering for meals and group relaxation in a spacious living room, dining area and kitchen layout. Having coffee on the deck was a treat. The owner was attentive and welcoming, answering questions prompltly during our stay. All-in-all, this was a delightful, first rate experience for our special weekend together.
