The home was clean and well organized. The neighborhood was full of young families, working professionals. There is plenty of easy to walk to pubs and restaurants. If you are missing the dog you may of left behind, there is a cute dog park 1 block over.

As a women, I felt safe walking. Parking was easy and well lighted.

cute efficiency with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting family nearby and needed a place to stay with our dog. Sarah's place was the perfect solution. Close enough to walk to Bardstowns road restaurants and bars, but far enough away from the noise. The place is charming and Sarah was very responsive. We will definitely be staying again.

Lively Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This place suited our needs perfectly. Its close enough we could walk just about anywhere we wanted. There are several breweries and pubs in the vicinity but it is far enough from the main road that the area is still quiet. Parking is not a hassle. The only improvement I would make would be to the bathroom. Its fine but could use some tile/grout repair.

Perfect weekend spot

  • 5 of 5

Location. Location. Location. We could not have been happier with this rental and where its located. Just a short walk from countless bars and restaurants - a great part of town we might not have seen if we didn't stay in it. Sarah was wonderful and responded very quickly to any questions we had. The rental was clean, easy to access, and the perfect size for a couple eager to explore Louisville. Would definitely recommend.

Perfect place for a couple to stay.

  • 4 of 5

Highlands is a nice old neighborhood, with kind of a young, funky vibe. Plenty of restaurants and bars around. Was nice walking the neighborhood with our dog. Studio apartment is roomy, clean, and nicely decorated. Small kitchen but you expect that. Could use a few more cooking utensils like maybe a whisk and ladle and a couple more sets of eating utensils. Great home base for exploring the Louisville area. We took a nice long walk with the dog along the scenic loop in Cherokee Park. Visited some bourbon distilleries. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
