About Chrisna Byck

We are a couple of documentary filmmakers, with 2 young boys aged 8 and 5, 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.

Chrisna Byck purchased this house in 2009

Why Chrisna Byck chose Bonnycastle

The Highlands is a vibrant integral part of the city and is centrally located with easy access to the airport, Churchill Downs, downtown, NULU, University of Louisville, St. Matthews...just about anywhere in Louisville. 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

A lovely, comfortable 1900 square feet home away from home with all necessary amenities in Louisville's most sought after neighborhood. 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. Come take a load off and watch the world go by on our swing porch. Take a stroll through Cherokee Park, a 10 minute walk away. The park features hiking trails, bike trails, playgrounds, a scenic loop, golf course and more.

The home is very comfortable, with 3 bedrooms, plenty of closet space, spacious living area, separate dining area, off-street parking.

We provide all the comforts of home: full kitchen amenities, linens and towels, washer and dryer, cable TV and wireless internet, plenty of storage space 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.

Perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely perfect for our needs! Loved the baby gates to keep my nephew from climbing up/down the stairs when needed. And the toys were a great touch. I HIGHLY recommend this house. The only thing I wish had been different was I wish there were at least 2 queen beds or 1 king & 1 queen. Even if that diminished the amount of space in the 2nd bedroom. But that would NOT keep me from staying there again! LOVE THIS PLACE!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review and feedback, Michelle. I’m so glad you loved our home:) Please come back anytime! Just to clarify on the beds: Two of the bedrooms have queen beds. The third bedroom(with the toys) has a full size bed. Take care, Chrisna :)

Cute house, loved the area!

We recently spent two nights in Louisville, and this house proved to be a great choice. Close to lots of restaurants, relaxing neighborhood, plenty of space, and all the amenities you could need. The owners were also super easy to communicate/deal with. Would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful hosts, charming home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the Highlands neighborhood in this home for our trip to Churchill Downs. The hosts were amazing; always quick to address any concerns I had. The home itself was very comfortable. It had plenty of room, and easy-to-use kitchen, and comfortable bedrooms. Best of all, the heat and air conditioning worked wonderfully, which doesn't always happen. I would stay here again.

Very nice place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and 4 kids stayed here for 5 nights. We had a great time here! The house was very clean, the kitchen had everything we needed (we cook a lot) and the bedding was adequate for 6 of us. There were even games and toys for the kids. Close to a nice big park and easy access to the highway. The owner was easy to work with too. Would definitely recommend this place.

House Rules:

1. The home is situated in a residential neighborhood – please respect our neighbors:
- Quiet time after 9pm
- Keep the front porch tidy during your stay – do not leave empty bottles,
glasses, cans, etc. on the wall outside. It is an eyesore and not in keeping with the character of the neighborhood.
- Do not enter or access neighbors’ yards. Specifically, please do not enter or kick/throw balls onto the property directly opposite us – the neighbor spends a lot of time and effort on her garden, and does not want plants to get ruined. A suggestion would be to play with balls further down on Edgewood Place or Cherokee Park is a 5 – 10 minute walk away with a huge field by Hogan’s Fountain.

2. Smoking is allowed outside on the back deck only. Please do not smoke on the front porch as the smoke travels over to the next door neighbor’s porch. An ashtray can be found in the kitchen in the skinny cabinet above the sink to the left. Please clean ashtrays and return them to the cabinet.

Thank you for your help in keeping our neighbors happy!

3. No illegal activities.

4. Keep the property and all furnishings in good order. We understand accidents happen, but please inform us of any damage, so we can fix it, claim against insurance or address it.

5. Pets are not allowed without permission.

5. Only use appliances for their intended uses.

6. Parking is available in the driveway, accessible from the alley behind the home. Street parking is easy and not restricted.

7. Fireplace: The fireplace is not operational. Do not attempt to use it.

8. Please clean the grill after use as a courtesy to the next guests, as our cleaning service does not clean this item.

Failure to abide by these rules will result in negative guest reviews and/or security deposit deductions. Thank you for your help!
