What a gem! Great space, great hosts, and plenty to see in town. They had more than a few maps available when we arrived along with plenty of local tips.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and the Victorian charm of Melanie and Geoff's home. The house felt like home away from home and works perfectly for 1-2 people. I enjoyed exploring the beautiful Old Louisville neighborhood, and the home is just a 5-10 minute drive to the KFC Yum Center and downtown.

The house is fantastic, and in a great location. It's an easy walk 20 minute to down town Louisville, as well to the Cardinals stadium. The house has a great mix of art and furniture, and the kitchen has all mod cons so if you want to eat in there is every appliances needed. If your a lover of Victorian architecture you won't be disappointed. Walking the historic area is a treat, as there is so much to see. Melanie kept in touch with us, and made sure we had everything we needed, and was always available when we had any questions. Off street parking was a big plus for us. All in all it was a great place to stay, in a great city, and I can highly recommended it.

We are from Louisville KY, a great food city, we love to travel, eat, drink, explore. Geoff is a fine art photographer who photographs the works of many local artists and also works as a realtor. Melanie is a business owner and lover of the slow food movement and farmers markets.
We love Louisville and enjoy sharing the many wonderful things the city offers. We can point you to the latest bars, restaurants, music and happenings around the city. We have stayed in Airbnbs in different countries and all over the States, most recently a trip to Italy.
