Out house is airy and comfy for a small group or large. (With couches and airmattresses, we can sleep up to 10) We rent every year for Derby and throughout the year. For Derby, we are asking a three night minimum. Thanks so much for your interest!
I am renting the entire home for the Derby season. I am about 11 miles from Churchill Downs. My house can sleep up to 8 with people in 2 bedrooms and 2 comfy fold-out couches. This place is great to hang out and socialize. There's also some really cool bars and restaurants in walking distance. Listing says 2 night minimum stay, but if those 2 nights are Friday and Saturday, the price goes up. Write for more info.
My beautiful St. Matthews home was built in 1923. There is a wonderful porch and deck - perfect for morning coffee or evening cocktails. I designed this place to hold my extended family when they visit, so there's lots of gathering places. In addition to the porch and deck there's a big dining room table, kitchen table, living room and upstairs TV and music room. There are two bedrooms There's also a very comfortable (firm!) futon, as well as a daybed in the front room for additional sleeping arrangements. Upstairs in the TV room there's a foldout couch and room for an air mattress on the floor. There's one bathroom with a shower. I have a beautiful flower filled front yard.
The kitchen is fully functional. I'll stock it with coffee and breakfast items (let me know your preferences) with the basic rental fee. I will do additional grocery shopping for a reasonable fee.
The neighborhood is the star of the show - walk to coffee, bars, shops, restaurants, yoga, a wonderful busy park.
The bus line can take you to historic Highlands, Frankfurt Ave., or downtown.
NOTE ABOUT PETS: The dogs will be off property with me and cats will be locked in the basement, so there will be limited laundry access. IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC this is probably not the place for you. Though you'll have no contact with the cats and the house will be professionally cleaned prior to your arrival, this is still a home normally inhabited by 4 dogs and 2 cats. Please take this into consideration when renting.
Thanks for looking at my listing! Welcome to Louisville!
Guests will have access to everything except the basement (laundry) and garage. Laundry can be accessed upon arrangement.
Interaction with Guests
I will be there to greet you, then I will leave the house to you. I will be staying 30 minutes away and will also be working close by during the business, if the guests need anything. I'll be in every other day to check on the cats in the basement. So generally, I may stop in from time to time, but will give my guests their space.
No illegal drugs. Drinking is fine in moderation, but if you feel like really partying, may I suggest one of the very cool bars in walking distance?
Smoking (legal) is fine outside - very comfortable on the porch or deck.
Come and go as you please, but please keep it down if you come in late.
I can not say enough positive things about my family's stay at Teresa's home! She welcomed us with open arms (and native treats) and took the time to answer every question my family had. Her house was perfect, warm and cozy and the perfect place to come home to after a long day of traveling.
If I have another opportunity, I would love to stay here again!
Thank you, Teresa!

I've recently relocated to my hometown - Louisville! Prior to moving here last December I was in Los Angeles for 24 years. I miss LA but I'm really enjoying rediscovering Louisville. There's so much going on here. Music, Theatre, great restaurants, festivals and events.
I'm self-employed and work mostly out of my home. I'm also a yogi, vedic meditator and friend of Bill. I'm really easy-going and love having company. I also love my house. I'm a first time homeowner and am having a great time showing it off.
I'm a trained actor and still get work in that realm sometimes. I also write and sing. Generally love to surround myself with creative pursuits. It's a great life.
My nephew lives with me - he will likely clear out when I have guests. But it's cool - he's a drummer and the band rehearses in the basement. At least they're good! No worries - rehearsal will stop if you come rent the room!
Hope this site attracts some cool people to my home.
Namaste with your bad self.
