Lovely Home! Lovely Owners!

  • 5 of 5

Home Sweet Home was how I would describe our experience in this home. We were there for the Kentucky Derby. The house was in close proximity to shopping and the freeway access so it was very easy to make the drive into Louisville to the Derby. We did not mind it at all. The owners were wonderful to work with. They were responsive and overly accommodating. We loved the gift basket upon arrival - classy touch! We would not hesitate to rent this home again. There there three couples staying in the home and it was not crowded at all. We played games, watched television and cooked every night.

Thank you!

Rented for Kentucky Derby weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate and very well maintained. Tons of room for gathering for meals and socializing. Very short distance to Churchill Downs with restaurants and all amenities located within a short drive. Homeowners made sure we had everything we could possibly need for an enjoyable weekend! We'd highly recommend staying at this property.
