We had an amazing family Christmas

  • 4 of 5

This comfortable home offered all the best for a family Christmas -- excellent kitchen & dining area and plenty of room for family members to relax and enjoy. We certainly would recommend to others for walking distance convenience in getting to shops, grocery & restaurants.

Thanks so much!!

Clean, Easy and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean, comfortable and in a safe neighborhood. The property owner was responsive which made for a very easy transaction. Lexington is a small city and this central location is idea. We will definitely stay here again.

Great neighborhood!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely older home that has been nicely updated in the wonderful Chevy Chase neighborhood. Many nice restaurants within easy walking distance. Our only reason for not giving 5 stars is the uncomfortable beds.

Close to Campus

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home with another family of 4 this past weekend. Both families had children competing in a swim meet at the aquatic center on UK campus. This house is charming and is much larger than the photo's show. Size wise it was really great for 8. Also there are 2 bedrooms in the front of the house and two in the back of the house. GREAT for our families as one child had to swim at 7am and the other family had a swimmer at 1pm. We took rooms to split the families so the early swimmers could bed down earlier. The kitchen was ample and fully stocked for all your cooking needs. We could walk to just about anything you need as well as the aquatic center(which is a huge bonus as parking was difficult). The reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 was the beds. They were really on the small side. Not Queen, but full size. Both families had husbands over 6 ft tall, so it made for a very snug fit! Just having Queen size beds would have made this a 5 star plus home.
