The Space

I'm offering my wonderfully charming, quiet, and spacious 1 bedroom apartment in the heart of Louisville!

The apt has a kind of eclectic, playful, comfortable, and sophisticated feel. It sits on the second floor of an older building that has been converted into four apartments. It's a place with a lot of charm, character, and warmth!

The apartment has a large bedroom with a queen bed, and a very sizable living room with a very comfortable fold out couch that becomes another queen bed. Please note that accommodating 4 means that I have 2 available beds to use/share between 1-4 people (unless other specific arrangements are made ahead of time).

The bathroom has a shower/bathtub and clean towels. A/C is available in the bedroom and living room-the unit in the bedroom is brand new! It has two balconies, one overlooking the beautiful Highlands. The kitchen is cute and fully functional for any kind of meal preparation with a 4 burner stove top, an oven, and a full size fridge. I am the only one located on the second floor, so the apartment is very peaceful.

Free parking available in the back of the building! I always leave coffee for the morning, and drinks in the fridge for all guests.

I would be happy to host you in my home, and provide you with any additional information in order to make your stay as enjoyable as possible! I love giving recommendations!

Guest Access

Guests have access to everything in the apartment except for the obvious personal spaces such as the two clothes closets, dressers, and the utility closet.

Interaction with Guests

I am not present at the apartment during your stay. I usually try to meet guests with the key (if I'm not able to meet guests when they arrive then I leave very detailed instructions) and/or before check-out, and I'm very much available at anytime via phone to answer any questions.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is fantastic!! It can't be beat, actually. It's located a block from The Tap Room, Holy Grale and Grale Haus, El Camino, Flanagan's, Monkey Wrench, Hammerheads, Nach Bar, and other great bars and restaurants. There's also fantastic nightlife activities within a very short walking distance (bookstores, movie theatre, nightclubs, coffee shops, a local movie store, a grocery store, Walgreen's). Honestly, I cannot overemphasize how wonderful the location is for anyone who is looking for a neighborhood feel with all the urban fixins. It's also a 10-12 minute drive to Churchill Downs, and a 7-10 minute drive/bike ride to downtown/Greyhound bus station.

Getting around

There are bus stops going in every direction a block from the apartment.

  • Location, location, location!

    Staying at Sara's apartment served as a perfect base for those wishing to be in easy walking distance to the eateries, shops, and watering holes located in The Highlands in Louisville. The apartment was clean, comfortable and charming with off-street parking which was a big plus.

    Sara is a thoughtful host who was very present in email communications to make for an easy check-in and check-out during our stay, and we would recommend choosing this locale for those who are looking to stay in this hip neighborhood.

    Thank you, Sara!

  • Our communication with Sara was flawless. We were easily able to check in and get situated, even when we arrived later than planned.

    The apartment was very eclectic and fun to explore. So much personality!

    The Highlands neighborhood has so much to offer. We pretty much walked everywhere and were pleased that Sara provided a list of recommended hot spots to check out. We felt safe the entire time and would definitely recommend this listing to others. A definite gem!

  • Sara's apartment is full of charm and is located within walking distance of many wonderful bars, restaurants, coffee shops and parks. Communicating with Sara was also a breeze. This apartment is a great choice for exploring Louisville!

  • This apartment is super cute and comfortable. The decor was a wonderful change from the blank white walls of a hotel room. My boyfriend and I stayed one night here. We played some games that Sara had and enjoyed a bottle of wine after we got back from dinner. I used to live in this area of Louisville and it's wonderful. There are tons if restaurants, bars, a grocery store, a liquor store, a movie theatre, and a fabulous park. Sara's apartment is a wonderful choice for anyone looking to stay in Louisville.

  • Sara's place is cute and charming! It's quite spacious and very warm and inviting. Sara was great to coordinate with and she definitely added personal touches like little notes and suckers! The location is wonderful as there are many, many places to check out in the area. I would recommend Sara's place to anyone looking for a more local experience when visiting Louisville.

  • Our stay at Sara's apartment was terrific. We arrived on the later side, so we weren't able to meet up with her, but Sara did a lot to make sure our check in was smooth and easy and our stay was enjoyable. And the apartment is comfortable and located in a great neighborhood. We would certainly recommend Sara's apartment to anyone looking to explore Louisville.

  • Unfortunately I wasn't able to meet Sara during my stay but the experience was great. Sara provided a little area guide to point me in the right direction and even had some drinks in the fridge for guests. The apartment is quiet, charming and the bed was very comfortable. I slept well every night. The location is perfect! Walking distance to Bardstown and there's something there for just about everyone and downtown Louisville was only about 15-20 minutes away. Parking for the apartment was super convenient and I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone thinking of visiting Louisville.

    May 2014
  • The apartment was charming, clean, spacious, and close to the best amenities Louisville has to offer. Sara was flexible, easy to communicate with, and went above and beyond tailoring our visit with recommendations and amenities. This is the place to stay when exploring the city.

  • My stay at Sara's apartment was great. She has a lovely apartment which makes you feel home immediatly. I wasn't able to meet her in person unfortunately, but she gave me all the necessary instructions to get there. It is so nice to be able to stay in a typical Louisville home rather than go to a hotel.The neighborhood is great and I made friends just walking down those streets! Thanks Sara for sharing your beautiful home and I'm sorry it was so hard for me to communicate since I didnt have my laptop and such. Loved Louisville and loved the apartment's decoration
