We're cool with basic interactions and respect the need for space.

Staying with Arlene and Teresa was a lovely experience! Their apartment was beautiful, tranquil and spotlessly clean. Their dogs were adorable and so much fun. Their place is in a great location, walking distance to many great restaurants and cafes. I highly recommend staying with them!

I was looking to get away for the weekend, and decided to stay with Arlene and Teresa. The place is conveniently located in the heart of Louisville and it was a short Uber ride to get to downtown. I only used the bedroom and restroom and was barely in the house, so I can't speak on everything. Nonetheless, the place was quiet and a great place to stay.

We enjoyed Arlene's company and everything she had available to help us figure out the city and activities during derby week. It was a great location close to everything and the venues we were there to enjoy. Everything was impeccable, I have nothing but praise for our experience and would come back in a heartbeat if I ever return!

Arlene was a fantastic host. Unfortunately I was not able to meet Teresa, as she was out of town. Their apartment is very clean and comfortable and in a great location, close to everywhere we wanted to go, and the dogs are super sweet and cute and friendly. Communication with Arlene was excellent and she even provided us with a few necessities/toiletries we had forgotten! I definitely recommend staying with her.

We're a same sex couple, moms of two canine children -- Billie (terrier mix) and Talulah (catahoula leopard mix), social justice advocates, unbigoted consummate foodies, wine lovers, globetrotting aficionados, bookworms, and music enthusiasts--by way of Brooklyn, NY setting some roots here in Louisville. After experiencing some serious hospitality as guests of AirBnB hosts, we could not help but to pay it forward!
