About Jodi

I grew up in Louisville and am happy to help with planning your vacation in any way I can. Our family loves living in this location, as we are close to everything we love to do. We love the outdoors and KY has beautiful trails to bike, lakes to fish and scenes to admire. My husband and I have relocated several time with his military service, but we are thankful to call Louisville home now. It is a great place to raise our family.

Jodi purchased this house in 2010

Why Jodi chose Louisville

Why call Kentucky home? Besides the beauty of the state, the people are as generous and hospitable as you will find anywhere. Louisville is a great central location, as we can drive to Chicago or Atlanta in less than 6 hours, we can be at the beach or the mountains in 10 and 14 hours, respectively. There are camping, hunting, rock-climbing, and boating opportunities within a very short distance. Plus, my extended family lives in the area, so our children are being raised with a strong family tie. My husband and I met and married here, and we have an amazing church family. We hope you enjoy Louisville as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

This property has an amazing outdoor area. The pool, pool deck and yard will add so much value to your stay.

Comfortable home with exceptional owners

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we booked, the owner was helpful and accommodating. We have rented homes many times, but have never had such a thoughtful owner. We were welcomed with a Derby Pie and Ice Cream and throughout the home there were thoughtful accommodations. It is a beautiful comfortable home with a great outdoor area and pool. Great home and great hosts!

The house was a perfect place to stay for my family and I. The house was clean and the area was great. The pool makes a huge difference with the kids. Great restaurants with take out and delivery close by. Recommend having a car. Uber was $25 to downtown. No complaints as all was great and highly recommend.

We felt right at home when we stepped through the doors of this lovely home. Jodi was such a sweet hostess. We enjoyed the Derby Pie & the Fresh flowers through out the house. Everything was so organized & extremely CLEAN. Can't wait to go back & visit the Gorters again.

Beautiful Home and Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a home in the Louisville area for a weekend away with our family. There were 6 adults and 1 infant and this home was perfect. It was very spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need to cook and we enjoyed grilling and eating by the pool. We spent most of our time by the pool and patio area, it was beautiful and very relaxing. The location was great, the neighborhood was nice and quiet, but it was close to restaurants, shopping, golf and about anything you would need. There was a basket of goodies for us when we arrived and lots of information on restaurants, places to go and things to do. Jodi was so helpful from the start to do what she could to make our stay comfortable and topped it all off with a delicious Kentucky Derby Pie. We had a wonderful family weekend in this home and would definitely stay again if we were back in the area.
