Comfortable, well-equipped house in very attractive and convenient neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We had a very comfortable one-week stay with our adult son in this cozy house (although it is neither quaint nor a cottage) in a quiet, leafy residential neighborhood. The wine and chocolates were welcome. The kitchen is clean, well-appointed, and well-stocked. The master bedroom on the first floor is very roomy and comfortable, and the closet/drawer space is amazing. It has a door onto the deck and backyard with BBQ, which are wonderful, although it unfortunately was so hot the week that we stayed that we were unable to take advantage of them. But the central air conditioning in the house was great.

More information on certain aspects of the house would have been helpful. For example, the house is on the corner, and the entrance to the parking space or garage is around the corner from the front door. (There is room for 2 or 3 cars to park off-street.) An unusual feature to be aware of is that the master bedroom has two entrances, and only one of them has a door. The other entrance, from the hallway next to the bathroom, has no door, and therefore there is no visual privacy in the bedroom if someone else uses that bathroom. Anyone in the living room or dining room can hear anything that is going on in the bedroom, whether that is snoring or some alternate activity. Also, the bedrooms and bathrooms on the second floor and in the basement are not nearly as comfortable as those on the first floor.

The house is not really within walking distance of restaurants or other attractions. However, the neighborhood is quiet and lovely. There are 2 excellent Krogers supermarkets within a 5 minute drive. Many Louisville attractions are an easy 10 to 20 minute drive away. We particularly enjoyed the Mayan Café and Joe Ley Antiques, both on East Market Street.

We would look forward to returning to this rental as a couple and would consider returning as a party of 3 or more

Quaint Cottage in Bird Sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

The house is cute and furnished well. It is centrally located to all the things we wanted to do. The kitchen is to die for and I would have loved to have it in my home. There was plenty of clean sheets, towels and we had fun grilling.

The wine and chocolates were a nice touch. The only thing I would have wanted was a reading lamp in the living room. My girlfriend and I are avid readers and the light was a little dim. We enjoyed the quiet upstairs while the men watched their games downstairs. The showers were great, the house was clean, the groceries were in the refrigerator and since the ice maker did not work there was a bag of ice in the freezer for us to use.. Thank you very much for allowing us to stay with you.

Great Central location in a quite neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

Great setup for four guys on a bourbon trip. Centrally located for cheap Uber shuttles to the best restaurants. Easy access to the highway for daily excursions to the distilleries. I found working with the owner to book to be seamless and he gave us great suggestions for our nightly dinner bourbon tasting adventures. The neighbors even brought us over freshly baked coffee cake for breakfast one morning. Would book again or recommend a booking for a friend
