“Beth and Kevin couldn't have been more perfect to exchanged a home with. Their home is beautiful and in a beautiful subdivision. About 25 minutes from the airport and Churchill downs. We felt very comfortable with them and in their home. They gave us all we needed to know about what to see and do in Louisville. It was one of our very best vacations. We were in their home for 10 days and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Lots of shopping and restaurants.”
Beth's reviewsAs a host (5)
“When we received an exchange invitation from Beth and Kevin from Louisville, KY (USA), we didn't hesitate: yes, we wanted to go! It turned out to be a very good choice. After a very easy and pleasant email exchange with Beth we decided to book our tickets. We even had the chance to hand over the keys ourselves. Beth and Kevin are lovely adventurous people and after meeting them we were sure that they would take good care of our house. Beth en Kevin's house was beautiful, spacious, clean and comfortable and it is situated in a serene area just 15 minutes away fom the city and shops. We also met some of their neighbours and relatives and we experienced some true Southern hospitality! There was plenty to see, do and experience in Louisville and its rural surroundings. We went to several musea, historical towns and we enjoyed the nature. Because of the central position of the state of Kentucky we had the chance to also visit other states, We had a great time in Memphis and Nashville (Tennessee) and we enjoyed the beauty and different cultures of Alabama and Mississippi. During our trip we kept in contact with Beth and Kevin through Facebook and email. It felt as though we had known each other for a long time. We are very enthusiastic about this first exchange and we can definitely recommend Beth and Kevin's place and Louisville, KY to everyone who wants to experience the Kentuckian way of living and the Southern part of the USA!”
“We spent 2 weeks in Beth and Kevin's house in Louisville Kentucky. Their house is very pleasant and comfortable. As we were just two, we used only the ground floor, with a large room with en suite bathroom. Large kitchen, nice deck, speedy wi fi. But there is an upper level with 2 bedrooms and baths. Everything was OK, and exactly as announced in the website. We used the Toyota Prius, the golf stuff, the folding chairs etc... Most important is that they are great exchangers, with many contacts before, after, and during the stay. They sent their daughter Erin, to pick us up at the airport, and ask all their relatives to take care of us, so we've been invited in many homes, asked for golf etc... The house was in more than perfect condition, and so was our. Louisville is a nice city, and Kentucky is a wonderful place to visit and enjoy, with incredibly friendly people, although its not on the unsalable touristic roads. So we highly recommend that exchange. Michel and Gabrielle De Paz”
“ This exchange home is set in a quiet, beautiful neighborhood with easy access to surrounding sites and restaurants. The quiet surroundings invite you to relax with a good book on the front porch, have a quiet dinner on the back deck, or take time to enjoy the swing in the back yard before heading out to enjoy the area. Since we had a simultaneous exchange, Beth and Kevin were not able to meet us, but they planned well for our visit. Books and maps of Louisville and smaller surrounding towns are available to plan your daily sojourns. Louisville was cited by MSN in Oct of 230127 as one of the upcoming travel destination in the USA. Walking tours, distillery visits, art museums, historical sites, Churchill Downs, and Louisville Slugger Museum are nearby along with favorite restaurants recommended by our hosts. Not to be missed is a stroll across the Ohio River on the Big Four pedestrian bridge. It was a wonderful week thanks to our hosts.”
“This is a comfortable three bedroom, three bath home in the suburbs of Louisville, KY. Beautifully furnished with everything you need for a comfortable experience. We found several excellent restaurants and beautiful scenic drives. Beth was very helpful in making our stay wonderful. She even went to triple A to get us maps for our scenic drive through horse country. If you\'ve always wanted to visit Louisville, this is the place for you. Sharon, Bonnie and Helene”
