Overview

About the property

A beautiful 3,000 sq. ft. house in an upper-middle class neighborhood, 7 miles from the University of Kentucky and downtown Lexington, and 5 miles from the airport and Keeneland. There is a small park across the street and a grocery store (Kroger) about half a mile away.

FYI, the cat mentioned in some reviews was moved to another property in February of 2017; there are no longer any pets living at this house.

~~~~~

In accordance with zoning ordinances and/or to address problems that have occurred with past guests, the following additional rules are enforced:

1) MAXIMUM OF 4 UNRELATED GUESTS (i.e., not related by blood, marriage, or adoption) due to zoning restrictions on single-family housing.

2) MAXIMUM AWAKE-TIME VISITORS on the property is one per paid guest at any given time (for example, if you have 5 paid guests then you can have a maximum of 5 additional awake-time visitors the house at any one time). If you anticipate having more visitors than paid guests then you must obtain written permission (to do so, write to me with the purpose for the visitors, the total number of visitors, and the day/time range that they will be visiting).

3) QUIET TIME is 10pm to 7am. This is a quiet family neighborhood; if the neighbors can hear your voices or your music from their property then you are too loud.

4) INTERFERING WITH THE SECURITY SYSTEM IS PROHIBITED. This includes tampering with, disabling, repositioning, or covering the cameras or security system equipment. (The cameras are positioned to watch all entrances/exits from outside of the house; there are no cameras inside the living area of the house itself.)

Most guests followed these rules even before they became explicit rules, but those who didn't have upset the neighbors. Therefore, failure to comply with these rules can result in police involvement, eviction, and/or forfeiture of the deposit. Please note that the neighbors are aware that this is a short-term rental and I have encouraged them to call the police and/or me if problems arise. That said, follow these rules and everyone will be happy. :)

Great for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six drove to Kentucky for Spring Break. We spent 2 nights in Lexington. The house was perfect. We had room to stretch out and not be cramped as we were in hotels. We also liked being able to use the washer & dryer. The location was great for getting around the town & surrounding areas. The neighborhood was nice and safe.

Wonderful property with an excellent owner

  • 5 of 5

It's our second year staying at this property, and we could not be more pleased. The house is clean and spacious, exactly as described in the listing, and the owner is responsive and great to deal with.
