About Chrisna Byck

Why Chrisna Byck chose Louisville

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 a 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.

Great location, Very uncomfortable bed

  • 4 of 5

This home is located in a nice neighborhood within a couple minutes walking distance to one of the main streets for restaurants, coffee, and shops. It was a short drive to many of the locations and destinations we had on our list. Felt very safe walking around the area. The bed in the Master Bedroom was super firm, like laying on the floor firm. I would have given 5 stars if the bed had been the least bit comfortable. The rest of the home was very nice.

Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The last 3 times we've come back home to Louisville, we've stayed in this beautiful house. The house is so charming. We are able to walk to the shops and restaurants on Bardstown road. You can also walk to Cherokee Park. The house has enough room for us all to enjoy with all the necessities. The owner, Chrisna, is always so accomodating! Driveway for parking but plenty of street parking available, too. The house faces a tree-lined walk way. There is a swing on the front porch to enjoy the serenity. This is a fabulous place to stay and is our official 'home away from home'! Can't wait to come back.

Thanks, Crisna!

Gena and family :-)

Staying in the Louisville Highlands

  • 4 of 5

This home was a great fit for 5 men on a ministry trip from Columbus, Ohio to attend a conference in Louisville. The owners were very responsive and helpful. The Highlands neighborhood offers convenience and culture. The home is historic, but was clean and had everything you would expect to facilitate your stay.

Charming home for 4 girlfriend getaway

  • 4 of 5

This home was perfect for 4 women on a getaway weekend. We brought an aero bed for the living room and it all worked quite well. The house is extremely clean with two baths (one up and one down) a well stocked kitchen and a comfortable living room for late night gab fests. The area is perfect for shopping and restaurants and even though we had a rainy weekend there's a marvelous front covered porch and a back deck too.

The only reason I did not give 5 stars is the house needs more lamps, I deplore overhead lighting and because we had a dark and rainy day the house felt very dim. An additional two lamps in living room and stronger lamps in both smaller bedrooms would help with reading too.

A Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This place deserves five stars for three reasons: first, the neighborhood is fantastic. There is a huge park for walking, hiking, running, biking, or just playing to the east and a fantastic strip of shops and restaurants to the west (hooray ice cream) - all in walking distance. It was very convenient to get downtown and to all the sights we wanted to see.

Second, the homeowner was SO easy to work with. I had a lot of questions and she went above and beyond in answering them. When we had an issue during our stay, she was very responsive and dealt with it swiftly. But best of all was the check out procedure - it was short and simple. I've stayed in many rental homes and I think this one had the easiest check out policy - usually you pay a cleaning fee but still have to strip the sheets, take out the trash, and on and on. Not here, it couldn't have been easier (and in trying to leave with young kids in tow, that in itself is worth 5 stars).

Third, the house was great and offered at a good price - it had plenty of room, everything was clean, the kitchen was small but offered lots of appliances (including a blender!). I usually cook on vacation, and in some places it's really tough, but this house had everything I needed - lots of pots and pans (and nice ones too), measuring cups and spoons, even spices.

A bonus: this house is VERY child friendly with baby gates for the stairs, a high chair, a crib, a pack & play and toys galore. We barely brought any toys with us and my two young kids had plenty to keep themselves occupied.

Highly recommended!
