Our humble adobe, yes we said adobe not abode :) is a huge two-bedroom apartment with hardwood floors and LOTS of natural light. We believe sharing is caring, and seeing as how we will be sharing our toilet and common areas, we also look forward to sharing: conversation, a bowl of cereal, and/or a glass of wine with our guests (no pressure). We reside in an apartment complex in Old Louisville, one of the most eclectic and charming neighborhoods in the city--beautifully historic preserved homes, bike friendly roads, tree-lined streets, all within a diverse community and a short distance away from just about everything:

While Bourbon, all-things Louisville Cardinals, The Kentucky Derby and the St. James Arts Festival are the city's staples, Louisville is also filled with great eats, an amazing lively arts scene, and some really genuine folks--very comparable to other major cities such as NY, Chi-town, Philly and San Fran without breaking the bank! During your stay, we'll be equipped and eager to share and recommend some of the city's gems!
If you'd like to experience a thriving city with something for virtually everyone, come to Louisville! It's big city living on a small city budget!

The apartment and room were exactly as described and pictured! We were only there for one night and regrettably did not get the chance to speak with our hosts very much. Had a wonderful time and a great experience.
These ladies and their home were so lovely. I stayed here during a trip to the Humana festival, and this gorgeous home was a warm and convenient home base.
I had a lovely time staying with Arlene Y Teresa. I was in town for work and it was an easy 5 min cab ride to the convention center. They were very helpful and knowledgeable about restaurants and neighborhoods. I would highly recommend staying here. Cheers!
A great experience, as our first airbnb stay. Our hosts were very kind, and helpful. The place itself was great as well -- clean, comfortable, and in a great location with easy access to downtown via bus, taxi, or on foot. I would recommend Arlene y Teresa to anyone looking for a place to stay in Louisville, unequivocally.
These ladies were so sweet, and we had a great time even though we were only there for a day. The rooms were very comfy, warm, and inviting, and we definitely felt at home. This was our first AirBnB experience, and we're so glad we got to spend it with Teresa and Arlene!
Arlene Y Teresa were absolutely wonderful! The space was exactly as listed, and our hostesses were above and beyond accommodating. It was a pleasure to get to know them both as well as enjoy the conference we were attending.
I would stay with these ladies again in a heartbeat if my travels take me back to Louisville!
We're a same sex couple, moms of two -- Sonny (cavachon) and Billie (terrier 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!
