Simply the best hosts and the most gorgeous home
Thank you Donna and Bernie for sharing your lovely home and being such gracious hosts. Our group of 3 moms, 4 daughters chose Lexington to stay for our first Kentucky Derby to be in the center of horse country. Our home away from home was not only incredibly beautiful, but we were surrounded by horses every day. It was a real joy to come home from the races and relax in this wonderful place. We wish we could of stayed longer than 4 days, as there is so much to explore in the area. The hat shops in Midway, the delicious 5 course dinner, Bernie in the pouring rain taking our pictures in our Derby outfits, these are our great memories! Thank you for your gracious hospitality. Hopefully this was only our first derby and not our last, we would love to come stay with you again!
Comfortable and clean. Nice owners
This is a nice property but it is not as close to the horse park as we were led to believe (16 miles away). Also, one of our primary reasons for choosing this property was the heated outdoor pool. Apparently it’s not open until well after we had booked our stay. No one told us that it wouldn’t be available. Quite location and comfortable beds, living room, etc
Clearly listed on VRBO home site has the dates for pool opening May -September.
Using google maps will take you the long way around. There are other roads that take you directly to the Horse Park and are 7-10 miles from our home.
Relax among the horses.
Wonderful rental in beautiful horse country. Gorgeous views in every direction. Convenient to the races and Lexington. Very clean and well appointed. Best stocked kitchen I have ever seen in a rental. The only thing that could have been better was the weather.
Thank you for your kind words.
This property is hard to beat. Situated in the heart of thoroughbred horse farms, you can view the horses every morning as you enjoy your coffee on the sun porch or by the pool. The kitchen has everything you could hope for - it is the best equipped kitchen I've encountered in my travels. We easily entertained our friends following a day at Keeneland Race Track. The hosts were very accommodating and friendly. We definitely hope to stay here again.
Thank you for your kind words. We do love our magical Alkira Place.
This was our first experience with renting a home and I have to say that it was a wonderful experience! The owners were so hospitable and the home/property was gorgeous. It was delightful for us to come home from long days at the horse park to this slice of heaven. The home is updated and very well cared for. I read a review before we booked about the dogs barking, but their dogs were precious and never once bothered us at all. The owners do live there, but everything is separated enough to still feel very private. We enjoyed them being there and appreciated their knowledge of the area and answering our questions about restaurants, shopping, etc. I really hesitated to write a glowing review for this simply due to the fact that this will be our go to place any time we are back in Kentucky and I don't want it to be booked! However, we were extremely pleased with every part of this stay and would only hope that others find themselves staying here and discovering a peaceful, restful retreat in a beautiful part of Kentucky. We are grateful to have been able to experience this!
Very pleasant stay
We were here in KY for the Rolex 3 days horse shows and stayed for a week in Donna's home. It was lovely !! The house was beautiful and clean, Donna was an amazing host and always available.
If you're looking for a home in the lexington area do not hesitate !!
And again Donna thank you for opening your home :)
