About Chrisna Byck

We are a couple of documentary filmmakers, with 2 young boys aged 7 and 4, who live a bit of a circus family life. We travel a lot, spending our time between Louisville and Phoenix, AZ. We LOVE coming back to Louisville and our home and gorgeous, friendly neighborhood.

The Highlands has many locally owned and independent restaurants, antiques shops, bars with live music, a natural food store, movie theatre, hardware, coffee shops, a skateboard shop, music stores, hair salons, wine and liquor shops, a bookstore, a brewpub, a musical instrument shop, tattoo shops, vintage clothes stores, a cigar shop, galleries, florists, a weekly farmers market, & ice-cream shops, etc. make up the eclectic mix along Bardstown Rd. that makes it a vibrant and fun place to stroll, dine, and live.

What makes this house unique

We love our sweet home, situated on a charming one block walking court, lined with blooming dogwood trees in spring and beautiful fall foliage in fall.

The park features a hiking trails, bike trails, playgrounds, a scenic loop, golf course and more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great stay at this home in Louisville. The home is very spacious, clean and walking distance to Bardstown Road and Cherokee Park, my two favorite places in Louisville. Love the big front porch and porch swing! Perfect place to stay if you are coming to Louisville.

Charming house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice time staying in this neat house in a fantastic neighborhood. The house is homey and very comfortable. The owner had a variety of flavored waters in the fridge as well as all the basic condiments and coffe. The beds were comfortable, the towels plush and the location is fantastic. The house is on a quiet street but just a few blocks from great restaurants, bars and boutiques. We enjoyed dinner nearby and then relaxing at the house. It was very convenient to get to the places we had to be each day. I would definitely stay here again.

So warm and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We (3 adults and 2 children) were in town for a student activity at the convention center, and this home was conveniently located in that practical aspect. However, we fell in love with the place over and above its convenience to our task. The location/neighborhood is wonderful, the home is comfortable and so charming, and Chrisna was very responsive and welcoming. We would definitely stay again if traveling to Louisville!

Comfortable and lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this home. We used to live in the neighborhood and we loved being able to walk to all of our old favorite places including coffee shops, restaurants, ice cream shops, and a wonderful farmer's market with the best omelets in the world. We will hopefully be back to stay at this house again. It is a very family friend place to stay and my two little boys appreciated the books and soccer balls. The only slight issues were some trouble with the lock box and the neighbor across the sidewalk getting fussy when a soccer ball was in the vicinity of her pachysandra. Overall, it was great though. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

Great location, Very uncomfortable bed

  • 4 of 5

This home is located in a nice neighborhood within a couple minutes walking distance to one of the main streets for restaurants, coffee, and shops. It was a short drive to many of the locations and destinations we had on our list. Felt very safe walking around the area. The bed in the Master Bedroom was super firm, like laying on the floor firm. I would have given 5 stars if the bed had been the least bit comfortable. The rest of the home was very nice.

Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The last 3 times we've come back home to Louisville, we've stayed in this beautiful house. The house is so charming. We are able to walk to the shops and restaurants on Bardstown road. You can also walk to Cherokee Park. The house has enough room for us all to enjoy with all the necessities. The owner, Chrisna, is always so accomodating! Driveway for parking but plenty of street parking available, too. The house faces a tree-lined walk way. There is a swing on the front porch to enjoy the serenity. This is a fabulous place to stay and is our official 'home away from home'! Can't wait to come back.

Thanks, Crisna!

Gena and family :-)

Staying in the Louisville Highlands

  • 4 of 5

This home was a great fit for 5 men on a ministry trip from Columbus, Ohio to attend a conference in Louisville. The owners were very responsive and helpful. The Highlands neighborhood offers convenience and culture. The home is historic, but was clean and had everything you would expect to facilitate your stay.
