The Space

Great house for families traveling with little ones, or for larger groups who want to stay together in the Highlands. Fully-equipped kitchen, large backyard deck, a piano, and a finished basement.

Our 1925 two-story Dutch Colonial is located in the desirable Highlands neighborhood, 3 quick blocks from Bardstown Road and pretty much a straight shot down Bardstown Road to downtown Louisville. We are in the Seneca Gardens area of the Highlands, half a mile to both Seneca and Cherokee Parks (great running neighborhood and park), and a short walk to grocery, post office, margaritas, sushi, farmers markets, and more. It's currently set up to sleep 6 plus a baby. There are also two couches on the main floor if you have extra people and a futon in the basement bedroom.

Though the listing price is for the entire home (we stay with family in town when our home is rented), please send an inquiry if you're interested in just a guest bedroom. We enjoy hosting and could probably work something out.

Main floor: living room, kitchen, sun-room, dining room. Formal dining room has french doors that open on to a large, multi-level deck.
2nd floor: Three bedrooms (not huge, but comfortable) and one full bathroom. Two bedrooms have queen size beds. The third bedroom is currently an infant's room, so it contains a crib, change table, and glider.
Basement: Brand new carpet, full bathroom (shower not tub), full-size bed, and a futon. Please note that for winter bookings, the basement is significantly cooler than the rest of the house. We have multiple space heaters that we use down there, but because it's below ground-level, it requires the space heaters to keep it warm. For summer bookings, the basement room is cool and pleasant, but the house might be better for smaller groups in the winter times.

Our house has a front yard herb garden (fresh mint during Derby season), a huge backyard deck, and hardwood floors throughout. We love to cook, so the small kitchen is fully-equipped.

There is a no driveway, but two cars fit in front of the house on the street, as well as other street parking places. We are one house away from a church parking lot that is available for parking, should you feel more comfortable than leaving your car on the street. This is a very safe neighborhood, so we always just park on the street.

We are near several major bus routes (Bardstown Road and Taylorsville Road), if you do not have a car.

Other amenities: a well-furnished kitchen with a gas stove, an acoustic Yamaha studio piano, a digital keyboard (though some weekends we take the digital piano with us, as Brigid is a professional musician), various stringed instruments (again, when not in use for gigs), firepit on the deck, a grill.

We have wireless internet and a 32" flat-screen television. We don't have cable, but we have Apple TV.

Our home isn't like a magazine, but it's a nice, older home with many amenities. We love living here, and we hope you enjoy your stay.

If you are traveling with a child: we can also provide a Pack and Play, a swing, a stroller, and various toys. Please let us know what you need, and we'll see what we can put together for you. As people who travel quite often with a baby, we understand that having some of these "necessities" already in your destination for you can be really helpful. If you don't need baby stuff, don't worry, we'll put all baby supplies away during your stay.

less than a mile away:
Heine Brothers Coffee, Java Coffee, Breadworks, Mucho Queso, Cafe Lou Lou, Dundee Tavern, Queen of Sheba (Ethiopian), Oishii Sushi, Saturday morning Farmers' Market,- Morris Deli & Liquors, Sol Aztecas, Homemade Ice Cream & Pie Kitchen, Kern's Korner

  • We were traveling to Louisville with our 3 girls to visit family over spring break and were fortunate enough to stumble upon Brigid & Davids listing on airbnb. We've stayed in hotels in the past since no one in our family has a home that is able to accommodate 5 extra people for a week. Not the most ideal arrangement since my family is spread across the city. Brigid and David's home was a perfect match! The size of the home gave all of us our much needed "space" (7 yr old, 11 yr old and 13!!) While the location couldn't have been better. It was minutes from everywhere we need/wanted to go. We were able to celebrate my older daughters 13th birthday in the Highlands at Boombaz (which is 5 minutes away) with over 20 family memeber's, and enjoy Ramsey's, Jack Fry's, Highland Mornings, Heine Bros. Coffee and Graeter's just to mention a few places to eat just minutes away from their home!! WE LOVE and MISS THE HIGHLANDS!!!!

    Although we never met Brigid personally, she was wonderful to communicate with electronically and with post it notes! Which my girls LOVED!! I cannot say enough about their graciousness in accommodating us on short notice (and THANK YOU for leaving us the much needed yummy coffee!!) We also loved the eclectic mix of furnishings of their home! Fun seeing a blend of Texas and Kentucky references as well as amazing musical taste (love EC!!) A true home!

  • Brigid was super speedy in getting back to us throughout the process, from initial inquiry to final logistics a couple days before we arrived. She also paid special attention to some of the needs of our family since we had an infant.

    Moreover, the house is located in a great neighborhood. I went on a few runs in the vicinity and found that I was just minutes from a beautiful park, trails, lots of fun shops, restaurants, etc.

    I couldn't recommend this home and the hosts more highly!

  • We had a wonderful stay at Brigid and David Kaelin-Caldwell's home. Their home was very clean and comfortable in a very quiet neighborhood.

    December 2013
  • Brigid and David's house was such a blessing to us! If you have a child and need a place to stay this is the place! They provide a crib, changing table, high chair, etc AND toys! Our son was in heaven! It was so nice to stay in a place that was child proofed so we didn't have to worry about our little one getting into everything. Brigid and David were very accommodating, stayed out of the way and even flexed to allow us to stay an extra night. Great house, great location, great couple. We hope to get to know them better!

    October 2013
  • Brigid's and David's house was absolutely perfect for our large family who gathered together for the week prior to our daughter's wedding! We took over the whole house, and the comfortable, relaxed atmosphere helped us feel completely at home while in Louisville. The neighborhood's location was ideal -- an easy drive to most anywhere in Louisville. Brigid is an excellent communicator, super clear in all her messages, and hospitable as could be. We would highly recommend a stay in Brigid and David's home.

    August 2013
  • We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at Brigid and David's house. They have created a home where everyone feels comfortable. It is in the perfect location, the neighbors were friendly, and had ample space for my brother and i to spread out. Being able to start and end the day sitting in their backyard was an added bonus. For anyone looking for a place in Louisville, this is the place.

    June 2013
  • We had a wonderful visit in Louisville in Brigid and David's home! The house exudes charm, is comfortable, and Brigid and David are amazingly warm and hospitable. The neighborhood is easily walkable and eclectic-great friendly vibe. I highly recommend their lovely home in the Highlands!

    June 2013
  • Great House in Great Area.

    May 2013
  • A truly delightful stay, hosted and guided by conscientious and caring hosts. The house was well suited to our party of seven — including a baby and two pre-schoolers — attending a family wedding. The open plan on the main floor, which included the living room, dining room kitchen, sun room and deck, worked great for socializing. The neighborhood, which was a combination of renewed upper-middle class gentility and funky chic, added to the fun. We would look forward to staying with Brigid and David on our next trip to Louisville.

About
Brigid is a Louisville native, but David is from West Texas. We've been married for two years and have an 18-month old boy who we hope to send to college someday -- our AirBnB income goes directly into the wee boy's college fund. We spent two years living in Scotland, where our son was born, and we absolutely love travel. Now that we're back in Louisville (and not traveling as much), we've enjoyed meeting the people that AirBnB has led to us. We love adventure, food, whisk[e]y, live music, libraries, castles, cobblestone paths, soccer, travel, flip-charts, historical markers, innovation, talks with good friends.... the list goes on. David is a consultant, and Brigid is a professional musician. This home is our primary residence, but we stay with nearby family while it is rented. We are also open to renting out just the guest bedroom or basement room, rather than the entire home. Send an inquiry; we love hosting people.
