Dayton, OH

"This space is the cleanest, coolest, and most stylish space I have stayed in so far. Highly recommend and the view is just amazing!"


Raleigh, NC


"I selected this place because of the beautiful pictures on Airbnb for a short, weekend trip to explore Cincinnati. The home is even more stunning in person, and the interior design is exquisite. Red Whale not only creates a beautiful space, but a welcoming experience with sweet personal greetings on the chalkboard and plenty of travel amenities. It is literally steps from restaurants and bars and Mt. Adams and within ten minutes of all my favorite local hubs for entertainment."


Montgomery, OH

"This was a great experience! We rented this home for a girls night to celebrate an upcoming wedding. This home was perfect for us! The home is beautiful and exquisitely decorated. It has an awesome view of the Ohio river and downtown Cincinnati, with a very large deck to view it from. It is in a great location near lots of things to do. We appreciated all of the amenities, such as coffee, water, etc. and their hospitality in always responding very quickly to our texts and emails. We also appreciated all of their welcoming touches, such as an adorable slate welcome sign in the kitchen, all of the beautiful lighting and clean smelling air fresheners. This home is absolutely beautiful, very clean and we ALL loved the decorating! We all thoroughly enjoyed this home and had a wonderful experience! We will definitely be back!!! THANK YOU! :)"


El Paso, TX

We needed a place to stay while we were in town for 10 days to be seen at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. For such a long stay, this place served as a wonderful home. The beds were very comfortable. It was beautiful, clean, spacious, comfortable, and the location couldn’t have been more perfect. Every detail was so well thought out and the design was so nice. The backyard was awesome and looked so beautiful especially at night. Parking was never an issue. Mt. Adams was such a lovely neighborhood to be in.


Clarksville, OH

"This apartment is sooo beautiful! I booked it for photoshoots, and it was beyond my expectations! I loved it so much. Super clean, amazing design & decor, and Jane was very helpful! Wish I could’ve stayed longer."
