The Space

The seat cushions double as the bed mattress - each with a top layer of memory foam that molds to the contours of your body and regains its shape when you get up.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Melvin's condo in the Henry Clay building was great. Walking distance to all the places I needed to go. Would definitely come back. Melvin, you checked on my mom and i and we really appreciated it and all your help. You are so very sweet. Thank you again.

  • What a space! Great views of downtown from the top floor of a gorgeous building. Very nicely decorated, and even has a fun spiral staircase! Plenty of room, including the two pullouts in the loft area.

    Melvin was very nice and had everything we could need available when got in. Check in and out was a breeze as well. Highly recommended!

  • Melvin was a great host! The apartment was in a great location and very well taken care of. The hosts were laid back and made things very easy for us. Communication was quick and easy. Definitely will rent from them again!

  • A group of friends and I stayed at Melvin and Steven's place for the Derby this year. We had nothing but positive things to say about our stay. Melvin and Steven were very responsive, responding to a few logistical questions that we had in advance in a timely manner, and also checked in with us to make sure things were going okay during our stay on more than one occasion. They were extremely gracious hosts and easy to work with. The place itself is well kept and in a great location. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Louisville.

  • This was my first Airbnb booking and I hit the jackpot!
    Melvin and Steven were great hosts, being proactive and extremely gracious. From reaching out the days prior to the trip, giving detailed instructions on getting in and checking in to see if we were good while we were there!

    The space is fantastic and clean with all the amenities one could need. Location was great to walk to dinner(Proof) and an easy cab ride to check out the Highlands area.

    Louisville is a great getaway trip from Chicago and I have a feeling I'll be back and crossing my fingers that this space is available when I do!

  • Myself, my wife and her parents stayed in this beautiful apartment for a week while my wife's parents were visiting. This is an exceptional place but even more exceptional was the cordial welcome we received from Melvin and Steven. They were always ready to answer any questions without delay and made sure our stay was excellent. The apartment was perfect and never did we feel as if we were staying in a residence but felt like we were staying in a five star hotel. We had clean and nicely folded towels as well as individual hygiene products, from shampoo, conditioner and body wash. They also understand that many tourists stay in their residence so they provide a plethora of maps and brochures to help you navigate and explore Louisville. I would recommend anyone stay here. It's breathtaking, relaxing and luxurious.

  • We really enjoyed our stay in the Henry Clay Penthouse! The view is wonderful and the upper deck such a comfy place to visit. It's a great place to stay just a short walk from downtown!

  • I almost don't want to say how great this apartment is in fear that it won't be available the next time I come into town. I was in town for the Humana festival and it was a wonderful short walk to Actors Theatre of Louisville. Melvin was so accommodating and easy to reach via phone, text and email. Overall a fantastic experience!

    April 2014
  • I was here with coworkers for a convention. The apartment was perfect! Clean and they even had coffee for us. They were even kind enough to call on day 2 to see if we needed anything. This was my first stay at an Airbnb and it really was great. I could not ask for more! Wonderful location, close to sushi, American and even 1 dive bar (Freddie's) we found ourselves at. Also only a few blocks to 4th street live. We will definitely be back.

  • I was in Louisville to lecture and the location and the accommodations were perfect. The apartment is very large, comfortable, and even has a jacuzzi tub, which I did take advantage of. The location is a few short blocks from the convention center and I was able to walk everywhere I wanted to go. I would definitely stay there again.
