About Deirdre Seim

In November 2011 I purchased this property because of it's outstanding location and 'good bones'. After an extensive remodel, it is ready to keep you in comfort and style for the duration of your Louisville residency. My family uses the house about 6 weeks a year, but it is available most dates. After many years in the hospitality industry, I know what makes a home comfortable and what amenities are most appreciated.

Deirdre Seim purchased this house in 2011

Why Deirdre Seim chose Louisville

Louisville is the home of the Kentucky Derby, of course, but it also has one of the nation's finest park systems, great live theater, huge arts festivals and (mostly) lovely weather. The Cherokee Triangle neighborhood is a vibrant, upscale but eclectic zone flanked by gorgeous parks on one side and nightlife, shopping and restaurants on the other-- I have lived in the area for 15 years and would not consider a move to any other Louisville location!

What makes this house unique

1-Same day booking available, just call 502-403-9839

2- 24 hour check in with our digital lock system-- no keys to pick up or return!

3. Perfect location with parks, clubs, restaurants all within a short walk.

Great location,but...

  • 3 of 5

Loved the convenience of this location...walking distance to many restaurants and a neat park! Wish they had mowed the grass and trimmed the bushes...especially where we needed to walk on the sidewalk to the house. Also wish the basement with the washer and dryer was more ready for guest use. We still had towels in both the washer and dryer running, and it was 30 minutes late for check-in. Later in the week we needed to request extra tp, trash bags, and laundry soap because extras were not available...and we were paying for 8 adults and 3 kids.

Owner's Response: I am a little puzzled by John and Marcia's review, but very sorry that the stay wasn't what they expected. We try hard to ensure our guests have a great stay. I think John (the guest I communicated with) may have misunderstood our home rental or perhaps there was a miscommunication of some kind. With our emailed arrival information, we send a list of what is stocked in the home-- towels/linens, etc. and "a starter supply" of tissue, local coffee, half&half, etc. Each of the 4 bathrooms is stocked with 2 rolls of tissue, 4 bath towels, 2 hand towels, 2 washcloths, hand soap and bath soap. When John said that 16 towels were not going to be enough, we brought in 12 brand new towels-- Because they were new, we had to take the tags off and run them thru the wash-- we told them the new towels were in the basement wash and assumed they would take them out of the dryer as needed and transfer the 6 still in the washer to the dryer. With the exception of the requested additional towels in the wash, the entire home was completely ready at check in time. We do not supply paper towels, but instead we stock clean dish towels. A previous guest left a partial roll of paper towels under the sink. When John called 4 days into his stay to complain that they were out of tissue and towels, I reminded him that we don't stock paper towels and that we only supply the "starter" set up of 2 rolls per bath. He was upset by this so we brought over paper towels and tissue. There was a large box of single use laundry detergent pods sitting by washer, I think John and Marcia may not have been familiar with those, so we brought over liquid detergent for their use. The rose bush was too big- so that you have to step a bit around it on the garage path- and should have been trimmed back. I should not have let it stay that big (it was covered in beautiful red roses and I hated to cut all the buds off). We have trimmed it back now and I will cut it back at the end of the season so that it will be smaller next year. We don't have grass to mow-- As you see from the pictures, the home has a rock garden and large deck in the back. The front has ivy growing down the slope to the sidewalk. The only grass like plants are the daylillies that grow between the back fence and garage path and a bit of ground cover around the dogwood tree. After blooming, we let daylillies die back naturally- so perhaps they are what is referred to in the review.

Perfect for our group!

  • 5 of 5

Deirdre's home is absolutely lovely, and she was a terrific hostess! Our group of 10 fit pleasantly in a great mix of bedrooms and comfortable pull-out couches. The 4 bathrooms were also well appointed/laid out, so we were never running into each other! We enjoyed the proximity to downtown - Slugger Field was just a short walk after about 15 minutes on the #40 bus (stop at the end of the street) or approximately a $10 Lyft or Uber ride. This part of Bardstown Road was also great since we could easily stroll to restaurants and bars. We all had a wonderful time - thank you!

Great Gem in Louisville

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect thing for us. There is plenty of space to spread out and a lovely back patio and front porch. The location cannot be beat- we walked to breakfast every morning. A 1-minute walk to shops, restaurants. One night there were some noisy people in the street, but otherwise was very quiet despite being so close to everything. The owner was terrific- available immediately when we had a question and needed an extra sheet. Check in and out was so simple with an automatic lock. Loved it and would stay there again.

Awesome House, Awesome Owner

  • 5 of 5

Not only was this house and property just amazing, the owner was as well. Upon arrival, we discovered the AC in the master suite was not working properly, but she went out of her way to buy a brand new unit and installed it herself before it could even have any significant impact on our stay (on a holiday weekend none-the-less). The house itself was beautiful and perfectly accommodated our group of 8 people. The master suite was just as awesome as it looks and all of the beds were ridiculously comfortable (I'd love to know what type they were so I can buy one for my own house). We really loved the area of town as well, it's only a short walk to some fantastic bars and restaurants (check out Roux if you've never been). The next time we return to Louisville we will absolutely want to stay here again!

Great house for a girls weekend

  • 5 of 5

Great property and great location. The neighbors we encountered were wonderful and the house itself is amazing. We did not want for anything as it was already provided. The front and back porch areas were great hangout spots.
