Book now for Derby, Forecastle, and Ironman!!!

Welcome Home!!

There is a reason that Louisville was named Lonely Planets #1 Tourist Destination for 2013! And now you can find out for yourself!! If you are looking for a place to stay for Derby, you need look no further. Nestled in the charming and trendy Highland neighborhood, 1926 Roanoke Avenue will provide you with easy access to Louisville’s highly acclaimed restaurants, beautiful parks and boutique-style shopping; being centrally located, you will also be a short and easy drive to Churchill Downs, the airport, the Nulu District and downtown.

We are happy to "stock" the kitchen with any special requests (or if you want one less step to have to worry about) for an additional charge.

House Description:
Located in “the Highlands” neighborhood just off of Bardstown Road
Two to four blocks from restaurants, bars and coffee shops
Four blocks from Cherokee Park (and the Barnstable Brown Party…if you want to try and catch a glimpse of any famous people!)
Sleeps six to eight adults (three queen beds and one full bed)
Four large bedrooms, two full baths and one half bath
Master bedroom and bath are on main level

For Derby: As guests of our home we will provide you with:
Maps and directions to Churchill downs
Recommendations to many of Louisville’s “hot-spots” (restaurants, coffee shops, shopping, etc.)
Daily cleaning service
Breakfast basics (ie: bottled water, bagels, muffins, yogurt & granola, coffee/tea, and orange juice)
Complimentary umbrellas and poncho’s (just in case it rains…fingers crossed it won’t!)
If children are coming and you need a babysitter, I have some great recommendations!

For Ironman:
I have competed in Louisville Ironman (2008) and many triathlons, so I have detailed understanding of the course and the event. We have two bike trainers so no need to bring those. We also have additional bikes for any "spectators" that are coming with you that would like to easily get around the course. Oh and we have a vita mixer for all your smoothie needs! I am happy to recommend sports therapists or massage therapists.

If you have any questions about the area or festivities, we will be happy to help you in any way we can.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • Laura is the kind of hostess that every Airbnb traveler would be lucky to have! Prior to our travel date, she was easy to communicate with and anxious to arrange or facilitate anything that would make this trip memorable for us. Her home is in a quiet neighborhood and the layout is everything we expected. It was super clean and neat too! The location was perfect for going to Churchill Downs, neighborhood hot spots, downtown, and convenient for grocery stores and restaurants. (She even made up a binder of notes, tips and directions)! Our group of 8 was looking for a comfortable home that would accommodate all of us for the Derby. We couldn't have been more pleased with our stay.

  • We are treated as if we had know them for years. It was a warm & welcoming stay which made it feel like being at home. Close to everything & I would recommend to anyone staying in the Louisville area for a visit. I know we will be back at least 2 or 3 more times next year. Please take a look at this offering of their home. You will not be disappointed !

  • We were a group 8 going to the Derby for the first time and we had an amazing time. Laura and her house made this a great experience. The house was comfortable and clean and Laura was very thoughtful on the details: 1) There was a brand new grill on the porch that we used the first night 2) Laura provided us with water and snacks which was a really nice thought 3) It was raining that weekend and Laura provided umbrellas and ponchos for our group which we all appreciated 4) We stayed 2 nights and Laura had the house cleaned (much like a hotel) in between those 2 days. Everything was smooth and I would definitely recommend staying at this house - also, it is convenient to the derby and in a nice part of town with restaurants, shops etc.

Hello and thank you for looking at 1926 Roanoke Avenue. My husband and I are happy to open our home up to share Louisville's Unbridled Spirit to you and your family and/or friends! My husband grew up in Louisville and I have now lived here for 9 years, moving here for professional reasons. We love to travel and know how nice it is to find a comfortable and clean place to lay your head at night. I am constantly amazed with how much I have fallen in love with Louisville; it truly is an amazing city and there is so much to enjoy and see; from great restaurants, to quaint neighborhoods, to exciting events (Derby, Ironman, PGA to just name a few) and spectacular museums. It's hard to describe energy during the weeks leading up to Derby but there's nothing like it. If you are coming in for Derby, one thing is for certain...you will not be disappointed! We want our guests to be comfortable and will do our best to provide you with anything you may need. We look forward to hearing from you! Warm Regards, Laura and Keith Aubrey
