What makes this house unique

A lovely, comfortable 1900 square feet home away from home with all necessary amenities in Louisville's most sought after neighborhood. We love our sweet home, situated on a charming one block walking court, lined with blooming dogwood trees in spring and beautiful fall foliage in fall.

A Great Find!

  • 4 of 5

We loved your house! It was perfect for what we needed and in a really good location. It was far enough away from the night life that it was still a very quiet neighborhood, but close enough to walk there if you wanted to. We got to the Expo center in 10 min and felt we were close to just about everything! The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. We had 3 moms and 3 teenage daughters and we never felt crowded, even with the 2 full bathrooms, it worked out fine. We would definitely stay there again. Thank you for letting us stay there. :)

Charming house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time staying in this neat house in a fantastic neighborhood. The house is homey and very comfortable. The owner had a variety of flavored waters in the fridge as well as all the basic condiments and coffe. The beds were comfortable, the towels plush and the location is fantastic. The house is on a quiet street but just a few blocks from great restaurants, bars and boutiques. We enjoyed dinner nearby and then relaxing at the house. It was very convenient to get to the places we had to be each day. I would definitely stay here again.

So warm and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We (3 adults and 2 children) were in town for a student activity at the convention center, and this home was conveniently located in that practical aspect. However, we fell in love with the place over and above its convenience to our task. The location/neighborhood is wonderful, the home is comfortable and so charming, and Chrisna was very responsive and welcoming. We would definitely stay again if traveling to Louisville!

Comfortable and lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this home. We used to live in the neighborhood and we loved being able to walk to all of our old favorite places including coffee shops, restaurants, ice cream shops, and a wonderful farmer's market with the best omelets in the world. We will hopefully be back to stay at this house again. It is a very family friend place to stay and my two little boys appreciated the books and soccer balls. The only slight issues were some trouble with the lock box and the neighbor across the sidewalk getting fussy when a soccer ball was in the vicinity of her pachysandra. Overall, it was great though. Thanks for sharing your home with us!
