The Space

I am offering my cute apartment close to Churchill Downs for rental during Derby week. The apartment is located on three bus routes so it's a quick and easy trip to the track. You can also catch a bus (or grab a cab) to the many events downtown and at the riverfront (about 3 1/2 miles away).

Amenities in the apartment include central air (Louisville can be quite humid in May), cable/internet, big screen TV, wifi (with a desktop computer for your use), ample off-street parking, and a fully equipped kitchen (I love to cook so I have lots of gadgets...).A washer/dryer in the basement can also be made available. Both bedrooms have queen sized beds. I can also provide a cot for a child, and/or a couch (not a sleeper sofa) for another adult. Bedrooms are carpeted and common areas are hardwood.

There is no smoking indoors but both the front and back porch are covered. I have cats but they can stay in the basement during your stay. I will be staying nearby while you are here, so I am available to provide directions, make suggestions, and answer questions.

There are two coffee shops within a block of my apartment. There are also some dining options in the neighborhood, as well as a couple of popular bars. It is a short drive or bus trip, however, to Bardstown Road/the Highlands, which offers trendy shopping, great bars, and LOTS of dining options.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to the entire apartment.

Interaction with Guests

I will be staying in town so I am available to provide assistance.

The Neighborhood

It's very diverse--college students, upwardly mobile business professionals, working class residents, very queer-friendly, ethnically mixed, safe, close to everything.

Getting Around

Yes. The track is 2 miles away (3 miles by car), so it's a cheap cab ride. I'm on direct bus routes to the downtown area, the Highlands (an eclectic, trendy area with lots of dining, shopping, and clubs), and Old Louisville.

Other Things to Note

LGBT-friendly home.
