Old Louisville charmer

  • 3 of 5

Coury was a pleasure to work with before and during our stay. We had a lovely bouquet of roses and a bourbon cake awaiting our arrival. Our party was comprised of 6 adults (two of which were are 80) and while Coury tried to accommodate us, the bedroom situation was less than ideal. The master bedroom is very nice, but the other bedroom on the 2nd floor has a set of three stacked bunkbeds. There was no way that my 82 year old dad could squeeze into the only bed at normal height. We ended up stacking the three bunk mattresses on the floor for him to sleep on which wasn't great. The 3rd floor bedroom was fine but the steps to the third floor are extremely steep and include a sharp turn (which Coury warned me of but were a lot harder to navigate than expected). We also had an issue with the heat in the house. The weather was unseasonably cold but we had no way to increase the temperature on our own. I was able to text Coury and get the temp increased, however, later that night after we went to bed, the house got extremely cold again and our entire party was awakened due to the cold. The house is quaintly and uniquely decorated and the exterior of the property meticulously maintained, but the neighboring houses were boarded up and obviously not nearly as nice as this one so while there were no incidents with safety, the overall neighborhood isn't great.

Owner's Response: Mary and her team were great to host. My wife and I kept in close communication and tried to accommodate them to the best of our ability, especially that there were elderly people within there party. The entire time, Mary said, and I quote, "Everything is good". It's unfortunate that we learned of any issues post stay, especially trying hard to accommodate and communicate during there stay. Bottom line, being that this is a historical 3 story home in the center of the city, it may not be best for elderly people who have a hard time with stairs and Nest thermostats. In the 6 years we've rented, we've received 5 stars across the board and people praise the neighborhood, location and the setup for groups of any size. Always room for improvement in making guests stay more enjoyable, however, Mary and her team just weren't the right fit for the home it appears. And that is unfortunate. One other correction on Mary's review is that there is 1 home out of 12 on the block that is under renovation and is boarded up. She made it sound like the neighborhood isn't great because of boarded up homes.

Outdoor hang-out space is great!

  • 5 of 5

The backyard and screened in porch were great! We used the fire pit every night there. Coury, the owner, was friendly and quick to respond and had great recommendations for places to go to eat. Within walking distance of some restaurants and bars. Very easy to drive around and to catch an uber.

The home had alot of charm and history as did the rest of the neighborhood. Very lovely!

We slept 10, but if we had more I think it would feel cramped in the sleeping quarters unless you bring an air mattress. The bunk beds were uncomfortable according to the couple who slept there -- maybe more suited for if you are bringing children. Although everyone else slept comfortably.

I can't wait to visit Louisville again! Wonderful city!

Cute and spacious house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay during our trip to Louisville. The house is in a nice central location. We had cars, but enjoyed the local bars and bourbon tours, so we mostly took Ubers and they were only about $7/ride. The owner is very accommodating and checked in to make sure we had everything we needed. The descriptions and pictures are accurate of the rooms and space. The bedroom with the bunk beds is big enough to fit several air mattresses if you have a larger party. We had a great stay and would rent again for future visits to Louisville!

An awesome property with an accommodating host.

  • 5 of 5

This house greatly contributed to an overall great first trip to Louisville for myself and to a fun-filled weekend with friends. This old home with all the modern updates provided plenty of space for the six people visiting. There was plenty of space to entertain within the home. Our favorite hangout was probably the kitchen with the screened in back porch and fire pit being a close second. The house is also short uber ride to downtown ~$8. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this house again and would definitely recommend it to friends heading to the area.

Great home for groups

  • 5 of 5

We had a party of 11 and this house was great. The screened in porch in the back is awesome to hang out in. The house is close to downtown and it was a quick drive to everything. Coury always responded quickly and was great host - He also had great food recommendations. I would recommend this house to anyone.
