Why Deirdre Seim chose Louisville

This townhome is ideally located for the Louisville visitor-It is new construction (2004), but located in the city's premier historic preservation district; The Cherokee Triangle. It occupies a magical spot between urban and residential-- offering a quiet arboretum and tree lined streets in one direction and a bustling district of restaurants, shops and cafes in another. Close to downtown, close to Churchill Downs and far, far from the cookie cutter suburban experience.

Great location. Not luxurious, but everything workable. Good interaction with owner.

  • 4 of 5

This condo is in a terrific location. Several good restaurants in easy walking distance. Parking spaces are tight, but manageable. Overall the condo is a little dated, but comfortable. Would have liked: more reliable, faster WIFI; better water pressure; faucets in 3rd floor bath that leaked less; firmer mattress on 3rd floor bed. Owner was easy to work with. If we visit Louisville again, we would be happy to stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review-- I am sorry about the leaky faucet on the third floor, it is now fixed! To me, luxury is crisply ironed, top quality, all cotton sheets and fine bedding; great, soft towels and quality carpet that is soft on bare feet. Those are priorities to me and what I have in the townhouse along with quality appliances and good quality, classic furnishings, a well stocked kitchen and flat screen televisions in the bedrooms and living room. I think your water pressure may have been affected by the water company working on a nearby main during part of your stay-- I checked the pressure as soon as I read your review and it is fine now. The third floor king bed has a 3" memory foam pad on top of a very firm Stearns & Foster mattress. We added the foam topper in response to a guest complaining that the bed was too hard. For now, we are keeping the foam pad in place, but if future guests feel similarly, we will remove it. We have the fastest internet package available in our area, but it still sometimes seems slow. Thanks again for staying with us!.

Great Location/Clean/Secure

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the location. We could walk to a great number of restaurants, bars, shops, coffee houses and even walk to just walk. It was easy access to downtown and all the major hiways. Well stocked even though we were missing facial tissue and paper towels but our stay was a short one and we really didn't use the kitchen so it wasn't a issue for us. Nice, large bedrooms. Closets have lots of hangers. Just be aware that there is also lots of stairs! Deirdre was very responsive to emails prior to our stay and extremely helpful when we arrived and went to the wrong location. Her suggestions for eating were well appreciated and we were not disappointed. We appreciated the secure parking. Since this townhouse is so conveniently located it is in a rather congested area for traffic so it was really nice to not have to drive everywhere we wanted to go.

very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful family trip and this townhouse was the perfect place for us to stay. The location is fantastic Very walkable to many restaurants- bars - Starbucks & Walgreens. Its very clean and has everything you need. Everything worked great and the beds are comfortable. One point to make would be on weekend nights if there is a DJ at the bar nearby you can hear it and it goes on pretty late. There are white noise machines in the bedrooms and that helped. You can't hear it as much from the master bedroom. I hope this unit is available next time we plan to come to Louisville!

Spacious in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property layout. The 1/2 bath, kitchen, dining area and living room were on the main floor. Each bedroom was on its own floor with their respective en suites. We were in town for a trade show and brought our two children so the separate levels allowed for lots of privacy. On top of all that, the location was amazing! Starbucks was on the next block along with a Walgreens for any forgotten essentials. Lots of pubs and restaurants in walking distance. Quick access to downtown and the expressway. There is a Kroger grocery headed south on Bardstown Road and a Winn Dixie just off Eastern Parkway for bigger items. The owner was very helpful. I definitely recommend this property.

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

This property was so nice. The perfect spot to meet our friends. The town house is spacious and was very neat and clean. We loved the arrangement and being able to do some cooking in the well supplied kitchen! The location was perfect for a down town concert. We so enjoyed the neighborhood and the cute shops. It is a great place to walk!

We will definitely choose this wonderful townhouse in our next visit to Louisville.

Deirdre was a wonderful hostess and answered any questions we had. We appreciated how neat and clean the townhouse was join our arrival. The little extras made it seem very homey. Thank you for such a wonderful place to stay in the Louisville area.
