Awesome house. Great for large family gatherings.
This house was awesome! Given that I had previously planned a family reunion in 2012 (the owners graciously provided me with a full refund when I had to cancel the rental at the last minute due to a family illness), I talked to the owners many times in 2012 and again in 2013 when we decided to try the family reunion again. They were easy to work with and very professional. But after reading the negative review about the house (with my rental less than 2 weeks away), I got a little nervous and decided to reach out to both of the owners with my concerns. They assured me that the house was ready for my upcoming rental, and although I believed them, I will admit that I was nervous as I was driving down to Louisville. Once I walked into the house, though, my concerns evaporated. First of all, the house is HUGE! I've been to other houses where the owners overstate the number of available beds--but that is not a concern with this house, as it had no fewer than eight beds and a ton of couches/futons for overflow. Also, the huge number of bathrooms in the house meant that no one had to wait in line for the bathroom or shower in the morning. The patio/pool/hot tub/dry sauna/wet sauna were amazing. Our kids were in the from dusk to dawn, and the adults were able to relax on the patio. We also set up a croquet game in the large yard, too. The kitchen was big and well stocked and we were able to cook and BBQ all of our meals for our entire four day stay. Every room of the house was immaculate and provided our various family members with separate spaces to be alone and peacefully read books. When we arrived, the owners also showed us that we could hook up our IPhones/Music to the house's stereo system so that we could stream in music on the house's WiFi router and then pipe music throughout the house and the patio. Finally, when we were getting ready to leave, I had to contact the owner to advise him that we ran into an issue with the pool cover on the last day. Even though I was calling with bad news (i.e., an issue with the pool cover), his first reaction was to ask me if I needed someone to come out and look at the cover because he wanted to make sure that our kids could enjoy swimming on the last day. When I told him that we were all done swimming, he told me not to worry about it and wished us safe travels. In sum, nothing but professionalism and courtesy from the owners. It bears repeating: the outside pool and patio area is absolutely amazing.
