About Bob

Hi there! I'm a house/all-things-design lover with an occasional bout of electronics/amazon addictive behavior. Love making sure I've played with the lasted home audio, automation, lighting, A/V ... basically anything that can be controlled via my iPhone, iPad or Mac.

I'm a serial-entrepreneur and heavy traveler, so love having others enjoy the place while I'm gone.

Hope to get to meet soon. By the way, I have an awesome 'team' of folks here in Louisville who are the really smart ones ... so, regardless of my travels or general disorientation, they always make sure the house is clean and guest-ready, yard is looking great; towels are fluffed, coffee's ready for the morning, and guests are always happy.

Bob purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Bob chose Louisville

Ahhhh, where to begin ... the Carriage House is, for me, an 'escape in the trees.' This spot really has it all. Including beautiful, mature tree-lined streets and alleys, the city's best park and trail system and a couple blocks' walk to the best restaurants, shops, nightclubs and culture the city has to offer.

You're also only minutes from downtown, the Ohio River, Churchill Downs and the world's most famous horse race! Plus, be sure to plan to schedule a Distillery Tour ... you can sample bourbon at restaurants within blocks and plan day-trip visits to some of the most famous distilleries such as Maker's Mark, Woodford Reserve and more. The list is too long to mention here, but don't forget to add the Louisville Slugger bat factory, Muhammad Ali Center, Museum Row, Belle of Louisville Steamboat cruise ... just ask us for suggestions or help planning the perfect visit.

I've had an amazing response to the venture into sharing my home - and have met some amazing folks in the process. Even those I don't get to meet personally - but who share their great experiences of my place and 'hood are super-rewarding. Our calendar has been pretty busy, so if you're looking at available dates - let me know how I can help you get confirmed.

Look forward to talking to you soon - and helping you plan an awesome visit to 'the 'ville.' Bob

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bob was fantastic and really committed to ensure that we enjoy our stay. As foreigners to the US we were a bit lost but Bob overcome the international communications challenge and made sure we get to the right place. Thanks Bob!! The place itself was what we expected and completely fulfilled our expectations. Nice, clean and well placed. Good work Bob!

First Time to VRBO w/a Great Place and Experience

  • 5 of 5

We went to Louisville to have a girls weekend and see the Lion King. This was a perfect place. Plenty of room in the bedroom/bathroom for all four of us to get ready. This place is clean and adorable. Do not let the parking in the alley scare you the neighborhood is very quiet. I really did not even notice any one driving or walking in the alley. We made good time driving so we text to ask if we could check in earlier and we received a phone call back in about 15 minutes and were told it was no problem. We did not have any problems at all and would definitely recommend staying here. We will be back if we visit again. This is far better than staying in a hotel.

Great Louisville Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Two families, coming "home" to Kentucky from Alabama and Kansas-3 adults and 3 children and 2 dogs-stayed in this wonderful carriage house and we loved it! It suited all our needs! The carriage house is a quick trip to any shopping and dining, and an easy access to Cherokee Park and I 64. We had the space we needed with plenty of space to park 2 vans and 2 bicycles. The beds are comfortable and the Kentucky Welcome Baskets were filled with generous goodies for adults and children! We would love a second bathroom, but we rented knowing it just had the one. We appreciated the washer and dryer and dishwasher, complete with detergent! The location is quiet and residential and just minutes from town. The price is very reasonable and we would definitely stay here again!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing, it has everything you need, Bob really thought of everything we need to make our staying more comfortable; the location is great, so you can walk to one of the main streets (bardstown) and enjoy all the stores.

I really recommend this place for a great experience.

Perfect Guys Trip

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage house was exactly as described. The location was excellent for walking to nearby bars and restaurants and we could easily ($6 - $10) get down to the Market street area by Uber. The owner was very responsive to our questions and made our stay as comfortable and easy as possible! Would definitely stay again.
