About The Owner

Though we've lived and traveled all over the world, we are born and raised Louisvillians. We love Louisville. It is an incredible city and we're thrilled to share the Louisville experience with other travelers. We're creative types who enjoy great company, great books, great music and great food.

The Owner purchased this house in 2012

Why The Owner chose Louisville

This area is close to everything Louisville has to offer and it is in a quiet, beautiful neighborhood. The huge private yard and unique layout were huge selling points. It is within 1 mile from the Louisville Zoo and hiking trails. Close to historic Germantown and antiquing. Traffic is much better than in other parts of the city as well!

What makes this house unique

You can see stars at night from the comfort of the living room couch!

Great house, super convenient

  • 5 of 5

This very organized home was perfect for our weekend visit. The owners were helpful and patient before, during, and following our stay, answering all questions. All essential items were provided. The location was close to stores and easily led to the downtown area for Ironman events. Would highly recommend this rental and owners!

Great Derby Location, Pleasant, Quite, Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This location can not be beat for Derby weekend. The home has a lovely yard and is nicely maintained. The owners are pleasant to work with and greeted us with locally made Derby Pie and locally roasted coffee. I would definitely recommend, especially for the Derby! I would have given five stars, but, the beds were a little small for my adult children. This is a perfect five star home for those traveling with small children.

We took advantage of the nearby park for walking/running and the grocery store is just around the corner. The neighborhood is quite and family oriented. Although it is close to a shopping complex (grocery, restaurants, etc) we felt tucked away and safe at this location.

Perfect location, great accommodation!

  • 4 of 5

This property was exactly as described. The owner was very nice and accommodating to us when we had a last minute guest added. He was also very knowledgeable about the area and provided good suggestions for dining options. The home was in a great location and just what we were looking for. The only downside was when the owner stopped by to pick up a personal item on our second day in, which sort of felt like he was checking up on us. Overall though, a GREAT experience and HIGHLY recommended! Thank you for being a gracious host!
