Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Quiet, conveniently located home in one of the city's most desirable neighborhoods: The Highlands. Guests will enjoy "run of the house" privileges, for the exception of the lower level, which is my private space and my private bedroom on the second floor. I rent two bedrooms on the first floor, and these two guest rooms share one bathroom. I sleep in a separate bedroom on the second floor, and use a private bath in the lower level.

The space
Coming to Louisville for a night or a week? Moving to town but not sure where to live? I have rent two extra first floor bedrooms with a shared bath in my comfortable 3 bedroom completely renovated bungalow in the Highlands area of Louisville. Your bedroom has a closet, dresser, nightstand and a firm queen size mattress with comfort padded top. The adjacent bathroom has a tub/shower with rain style shower head. For those who have allergies, note that I have 2, nine-year-old cats who are very well-mannered and affectionate, but pretty much stay to themselves. My place isn't all "furry" though. I'm fanatic about keeping my home clean and orderly. Often people comment that if they hadn't seen the cats they wouldn't even have known I had any. Nightly rate includes clean linens, towels, and bathroom essentials (shampoo, body wash or soap, etc), complimentary wi-fi, as well as your choice select Starbucks brand coffee and teas available all day long via my Keurig.

There are approximately 7 restaurants within a 3 block walking distance of my home. I am less than a half mile from Bellarmine University, approximately 3 miles from the University of Louisville, and less than 10 miles from the airport and 5 miles from the central business district downtown. I keep a fairly busy schedule so generally guests generally have the house to themselves. I am an avid cook (not professional), so if you are so inclined, you are welcome to use anything in the kitchen you find available. I also grow a variety of veggies in a fairly small seasonal garden, so depending on what's ripe, you're more than welcome to pick from the garden, which may include a couple different varieties of lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, yellow squash, zucchini, green beans, broccoli, cucumbers and some herbs.

Guests who stay with me can sign-out a Highlands discount card, which will give you discounts at over 100 restaurants, bars and other attractions near home. Guests who do not return the card at the end of their stay will be assessed a $50 card replacement fee.

NON SMOKING ONLY.

Guest access
My guests have full use of all areas of the home except the lower level. This area contains my private bathroom and media room. You are free to watch TV in the first floor den or use the TV in the guest bedroom. You are also welcome to cook in my kitchen. There are 2 grocery stores within a mile of my home. On a nice day feel free to lounge on the patio with a glass of your favorite adult or non-alcoholic beverage and relax to the sound of the tranquil waterfall in the backyard.

Other things to note
Oh, one final thing to note is that I do NOT have cable TV. I took the plunge this year and cut the cord! Instead I have installed a high-powered antenna on the house that picks up about 45 high-definition channels over the air. The bedroom has a high-definition TV. I also have TIVO service in the living room through which guests can access Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and more, so there's no shortage of stuff to watch, but with so much to do in Louisville, why waste your time watching TV?? :)

There is ample parking in front of of the house. DO NOT PARK IN MY DRIVEWAY.

Location

Louisville, Kentucky, United States

Deer Park is a neighborhood four miles southeast of downtown Louisville, Kentucky, USA. Most of the neighborhood was developed from 1890 through the 1920s as a streetcar suburb, with all but six of its 24 subdivisions being developed by 1917, and the last laid out by 1935, although some development west of Norris Place continued after World War II.

I'm a very engaging, but private professional who, after a few decades working in the corporate and non-profit sectors, decided it was time to do my own thing, and went back to school and became a licensed massage therapist. Book a room with me and enjoy the option of also booking a massage in my in-home studio at a special Airbnb rate - 20% off any massage service (must be booked during studio hours). My booking confirmation page will include a link to my business website where you can book your massage. I like to travel extensively around the world. I love to do home renovation projects, garden and cook. I like good wine and fine bourbon. I'm also an avid cyclist. If you bring a bike, we may just go riding together! I also recently became a Certified Tourism Ambassador for Louisville. I'm available to help you plan the most out of your time here!

During your stay
I do like to interact with my guests, as much as they may like my company. If invited, I've been known to go out to eat with guests, do a little bar hopping, or enjoy a nice dinner at home. I'm happy to make recommendations on places to see, eat and entertain. My guests are free to come and go as they wish.
