About Owner / Property Manager

We moved to Louisville from Colorado in 2006 with a 1.5 year old. Now we have 4 kids and love it here. We love the neighborhood this house is in and Louisville in general. It was quite a change to go from bears being on the back porch in Colorado to riding a bus to work and getting on an elevator to my office. Josh is an actuary (boring math stuff but hopefully not as nerdy as Ben Stiller in Along Came Polly) and Beth works with an organization to place foster children with adult mentors. We have 4 kids (now ages 2, 8, 10, and 12). We love good people, good beer, and good food and Louisville has all three.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this house in 2008

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Louisville

The house is almost 100 years old and has plenty of the original work and detail that makes it so charming. It also has some improvements from when we moved in, like a finished basement and more outdoor space (long story but our chickens burned down our garage and we didn't rebuild it). We like it better with more yard anyway.

What makes this house unique

This house is close to everything that our guests typically want to do. We are within 2.5-3 miles (and in some cases closer) of Churchill Downs, downtown Louisville, Bardstown road area, the EXPO center, and the Convention Center, not to mention U of L if you want to catch any Cardinals sports games while you are here.

very cozy, great location, clean

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time and thought the location was ideal for all the activities we had planned. There was also plenty of space and beds. It was nice to have the basement to have everyone together as a group and the dinning room table for playing cards and doing breakfast. Also was nice to have plenty of towels, blankets, and dishes.

Thank you. We had a great retreat!

Great house/location in Louisville!

  • 5 of 5

Josh was a wonderful and accommodating host, and we greatly enjoyed our stay! We had a large group of 14 and while the house was a little tight, it worked out perfectly! The location was great and walkable to nearby cafes and stores. Would definitely return if I'm in the Louisville area again!

Nice house

  • 5 of 5

This was a very nice house to stay in. We had 6 adults with us and it was comfortable for all. It was an easy drive to downtown and Bardstown Rd. The owners were very friendly and easy to work with. Thanks for a nice few days get away.

Where do you live?

Very clean, well decorated home!

  • 4 of 5

This house is very well located with plenty of fun things to do close by. It is just a few minutes from the airport. The neighborhood was nice and quiet. Inside, the house is nicely decorated and everything was really clean. There was plenty of room for our group of six and we didn't even use the upstairs rooms! If you are looking for an affordable, clean place to stay this would be a great place. The owners were also easy to contact and were great at keeping in touch with us. Would stay again sometime if we are in the area!

Wonderful property owner, wonderful location, great property.

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost, the property owner, Josh, is absolutely wonderful. He was quick to reply to my messages/questions, very accommodating with our trip, and there if we needed anything (which we didn't).

The house is lovely and is convenient to all necessities...restaurants, grocery stores, entertainment. We were there for the VEX Robotics Worlds Competition that was held at the Kentucky Exposition Center. The house is only 5 minutes away...which was very convenient.

We had an awesome trip!!! Thanks Josh for helping make that happen for us!!!!!

Great location close to the KY Expo Center.

  • 5 of 5

We had three families, 9 total, in town for an event at the Expo Center. The house seemed small from the outside, but had plenty of room for all. We even had the team meeting in the living room / kitchen. There is also a large playroom in the basement.

The house is located in a neighborhood with local restaurants and bars (good ones suggested by the owners). There is also a supermarket close by. The Expo Center is maybe 15 minutes away.

Check in and check out were very easy also. We all had a very positive experience.
