Roomy with a backyard waterfall! Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at this house. While we didn't get to enjoy everything (like the large decks), we made full use of all of the space to celebrate my milestone birthday.

We made meals together in the well appointed kitchen, ate and played games together around both of the large tables, and snuggled on the comfy furniture in the living and family rooms.

The well stocked bathrooms and roomy bedrooms was perfect for our large group and we even got to enjoy the piano as one of our budding musicians played us his favorite tune.

The kids loved the table tennis and also the massive number of closets which were perfect for hide and seek!

My favorite part of the house was the gorgeous waterfall in the backyard. Even though you can't see it from the house, it is absolutely worth the walk down the hill through the soft leaves to check it out! What a gift!

While in Louisville, we went to the Mega Caverns and also explored Cave Hill cemetery, the final resting place of Muhammad Ali.

Thanks for playing a part in making my birthday special!

Cozy mid-western home

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and cozy. This is a pretty big house. We were 5 enough bathrooms that no-one had to wait for the use of a bathroom (showering). The Kitchen was a perfect size that we were able to cook as a group. Cooking together is very important to me. If you are ever in Louisville you cannot go wrong staying here.

A great comfortable stay in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for letting us stay in your home, we enjoyed our time there and in the event we return we will definitely be in contact. The neighborhood was fantastic and quiet. The beds were comfortable and the home had everything we needed. We especially enjoyed the back deck during the evening. The kitchen had everything we needed, this was our home away from home. Wendy was the best, extremely reliable and ready to answer any questions we had. Thanks again.

A spacious, comfortable, and beautiful home for our KY Derby celebration!

  • 5 of 5

After the wettest KY Derby on record, we could not have had a more comfortable home in which to dry out!

Ten of us stayed in this large home in suburban Louisville for four days. The house is fully stocked with amenities from hair dryers to kitchen essentials, and we arrived to delicious “Kentucky Proud” Welcome gifts. We had room to spread out and hang out, lots of space to cook, grill, and eat, ample bathroom space, and comfortable beds in which to crash. We saw cardinals from the back deck and took photos of the lush backyard and creek with its small waterfall.

The house is within several minutes of three highways, a synagogue and churches, parks with walking trails, and every type of shopping one might need.

Check in and out were a breeze. The house owner was warm, hospitable, informative, and accessible. Were we to visit the Ville again at Derby time, or any other time, we would check out this property’s availability before looking anywhere else.

Perfect for a large group hitting the bourbon trail

  • 5 of 5

I hosted 8 guys for a bourbon trail weekend. This house was perfect - it was large enough for everyone to have their own bed or couch, it was a 15 uber ride from downtown and close to good places to eat and good liquor stores. The ping pong table was also fun. Finally the owner was very good - communication was excellent, it was very easy to get the key, and everything was exactly as described (it was clean with clean towels and linens). I'm very glad I chose this over renting a bunch of hotel rooms.

Louisville was voted the #1 destination city in the country in 2014. We have a host of attractions here including Louisville Slugger Bat Factory and Museum, KY Derby Museum and Churchill Downs horse racing, Bourbon distilleries, Belle of Louisville paddle wheel boat, Louisville Stoneware pottery, The Underground Mega Cavern and ziplines, the Glassworks, Falls of the Ohio State Park, Frazier History Museum, the zoo, an amusement park, historic homes and so much more.

With one of the top culinary schools in town, we have become one of the big "foodie" cities in the country. LOTS of cuisine choices and so many restaurants from high end to a quick bite. Enjoy plenty of bourbon infused dishes and fresh farm to table meals.

There are ample bourbon experiences downtown and within one hour of Louisville are the big distilleries on the KY Bourbon Trail. They welcome guests wanting to learn about how bourbon is made and aged and of course, offering a tasting of their products! Louisville also has many bars on their Urban Bourbon Trail. Each bar has anywhere from 50 to 150 kinds of bourbon on the shelf!

We have a professional soccer team, a Triple A baseball farm team for the Cincinnati Reds, the annual Ironman competition, lots of boating and kayaking on the Ohio River, we are a cycle friendly city and there are numerous wonderful golf courses in the area. Just south of town are a number of caves for hiking, exploring and spelunking (including Mammoth Cave) and we have a terrific local park system offering the usual range of activities... hiking, tennis, baseball, BMX tracks, playgrounds, swimming, disc golf, etc. The Mega Cavern is home to the country's largest all underground BMX bike park as well as all underground zip lines, some launching from 90 feet up!

People are always amazed when they get to Louisville how much is actually here. It's pretty phenomenal so plan to come visit and stay at our wonderful, relaxing vacation home offering easy access to all of it!
