Wow. All I can say is that I wish I had more reasons to visit Lexington, because Matti's place was great. He met me when I arrived, and upgraded my room, which was really nice. He also had great information about the distilleries, reccomended a great brewery, and assured me that he was only a call or text away. The house was beautiful. Easily the nicest house on the block. The kitchen was great, open, and clean. My pup, Copper, and I really enjoyed walking the park just a block away. Highly recommend.
The place was clean and efficient and well located. I would certainly recommend it to people traveling through Lexington and looking for an affordable place to spend the night.
My first Airbnb experience, and it couldn't have been better. Chatted with Matti (cool dude), and really enjoyed the accommodations. Charming air-conditioned older cottage with decent upgrades to the common areas, shower/bath, and great kitchen. Location couldn't have been better ... a block to a nice park, an easy 1-mile bike ride to downtown, and about four blocks to a grocery. If you visit, be sure to check out Common Grounds coffee house about half way between the house and downtown ... bagels, sandwiches, loose leaf tea. Awesome first trip to Lex.
Matti and the place were great- very clean and comfortable home, right near downtown. He was very reachable/helpful and we had a wonderful time. Thanks matti!
Matti was warm and welcoming. He even had a couple basil and strawberry infused waters waiting on us. Boom! Place was nice and comfy; he even upgraded our room at no charge. Great location for walking to all things. Would definitely return.
Matti's place was great! Very easy and convenient check-in / out, and in an excellent location. Beautiful house, clean, well maintained, and a fantastic host who will even take you on bourbon tours! :) We stayed one night en route south from Canada, and my only wish is we stayed a few more nights so I could cook up some yummy eats in that stunning kitchen!! All in all, I highly recommend this place. Cheers!
