We don't have too many rules, other than respecting our property and our neighbors.
No smoking in the house, but we have a porch with swing bench and we'd be happy to provide ashtrays out there:)
We had a family gathering using this home as our base. It was a wonderful home in which to do that. The house was exactly as described and fit our family perfectly. As former Louisvillians, we love the Highlands area and this home as a perfect location. The house is located on a very quiet street, yet it is just a short walk to Bardstown Rd. and it's many restaurants, shops, and bars. Going the other direction from the house, you can enter Cherokee Park, a beautiful, large green space. Our daughter is a runner and really enjoyed training in this area. Additionally, our two granddaughters found the house to be very kid-friendly. They especially enjoyed the front porch and swing. We would stay in this home again if the occasion arose and would recommend it to others.
Charming house a short walk from Bardstown Street! Chrisna was a wonderful host and very responsive! The house has everything you need for comfortable stay! Would highly recommend if you want to stay somewhere that's close to everything! We had a great time!
Great place to stay in Louisville! Six of us were in town for a festival and this was the perfect place to call home for the weekend. The house was clean and well-kept, had all the essentials, and the huge front porch was a great place to hang out in the morning. The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of room. Chrisna was a great host and made us feel very welcome, she even provides restaurant recommendations in her guest book. The neighborhood was great too! We were within walking distance of lots of shops and restaurants and took full advantage. We hope to return soon!
The house was beautiful and is in a great location. Chrisna was very helpful to deal with and was a great host. We would definitely stay again.
We had a fantastic time in Louisville.. Our trip coincided with St Patricks celebration in Louisville..weather was fantastic and the entire place was lively due to celebrations and events all day around
To top that we got lucky with such a wonderful accomodation. Chrisna has a very nice place in a very beautiful neighborhood very close to downtown. Her house was clean and had all the amenities we were looking for. Checkin checkout process was simple. I would highly recommend her place
This Highlands house offers the comfort and conveniences making this the perfect home away from home! I can truly say this home was absolutely perfect for our group of 6 (3 couples). The house was spacious, well taken care of and perfectly located!
I can't say enough about how welcoming (and responsive) Chrisna was and went above and beyond when our group was snowed in for an extra night. Without hesitation and with open arms, she welcomed us to stay another night!
Our group fell in love with Louisville, from the restaurants, bars, bourbon and kind people. We are so thankful to have picked a house located within walking distance of the best couple miles Louisville has to offer! We can't wait to go back!
The house was amazing! The location was perfect and we could walk to anything we needed. The house faces a walking path that separates the neighbors' yards (why isn't every neighborhood like that?). The piano in the living room even got some use. Maybe my favorite AirBnb?
