  • Peaceful riverfront property

    5/5

    Can't beat the river views from this property, my family and I loved watching the sunsets. The house had everything we needed and it was just a short drive to downtown Louisville.

  • Lovely home with great river view

    5/5

    We enjoyed staying in this lovely home while exploring Louisville. Sitting on the deck and watching the sunset and lightning bugs was a highlight. It was luxurious, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen was nicely equipped and spacious. Susie was a gracious hostess and communicated well with us.

    The place was just what we needed for Derby weekend! It has a beautiful view and setting. The beds were so comfortable. Fully stocked with everything except dishwasher soap. Will definitely stay again if available.

  • Lovely House -- Some Issues

    4/5

    My family stayed at this lovely home on the Ohio River in March of 2021. The house is exactly as listed and in good condition. The neighborhood is quiet and allows wonderful access to the river and a private family experience.During our stay, we had a few issues...water heater failed, wifi password missing, and bugs. I will detail these below:Water heater -- after discovering the water heater was broken, we tried to reach out to the owner/host. The response time was not ideal...but after 1.5 days, the water heater was replaced. Thank you to the owner for this solution. Wifi Password -- same as above. Needed this password upon arrival and it took a full day to receive and get it working.Bugs -- unfortunately, the house (and apparently the neighborhood) have a problem with stinkbugs. I am not sure if this is seasonal, but we removed more than 40 bugs during our short stay. Much worse at night...as they are attracted to the indoor lights.Overall, the house is clean and updated. Nice beds, furnishings, and a good experience once we had hot water and wifi.
