5/5 Excellent

Just easy and enjoyable. Such wonderful hosts that let us just enjoy our time. Highly recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Nice Stay, Perfect Hospitality
The property was in good condition, clean, and comfortable. We had both floors, and it was big enough to host 3 couples upstairs OR down. Buff communicated everything promptly and we had a flawless stay. Full disclosure, this property is the best one amongst the neighboring properties. But it was conveniently located, especially if you're going for the Derby or any other Churchill Downs activities.

4/5 Good

Beautiful updated home fora large group
We had a great stay at this location. Plenty of room for six people. Everything was clean and the beds were comfy. The host was amazing at responding whenever we had a question. The reason for the four stars instead of five is because the homes surrounding the property were unkept, and we felt the neighborhood was a little questionable.

Everything you need for a friends getaway
Check in and out process was easy. The place was exactly as expected. Easy access to downtown and great deck space! Thank you for a fun weekend!!

5/5 Excellent

So chic and classy
Great house and great decor. Everything was exactly where it was said to be per the description. We definitely appreciated the back porch and enclosed look :) This would be an awesome location if going to the Derby! Please take Buff’s recommendations as to where to eat and places to check out. Thanks for a great stay for my family :)
