First and foremost, Yana is AMAZING! I found the rental and booked almost 2 months in advance. I have never rented a vacation rental before because we always stay at hotels, so I was a little nervous! Yana was very easy to communicate with and very pleasant.
I was coming into town for a training event and we had a total of 10 people in our unit alone. Since she owns both units, my friend rented the other side which was PERFECT seeing as we all love getting together when we go away. We even hosted a dinner and had MORE friends come over. There was so much room for us, it didn't even feel crowded. Some awesome memories were created that weekend. I loved the open floor plan because that made conversations flow and the people in the kitchen could take part in all the fun. (I was one of the cooks.....HUGE plus for me!!!)
Half of us were driving in from NJ and the other half were flying. We ended up getting there earlier than the scheduled check in time, but I had advised Yana the night before that we decided to drive out there. We were so exhausted from our drive. Yana was there to welcome us, she showed us into the rental and even offered to make us coffee!!
I thought we were gonna have an issue with parking, but we made it work. We had more than 4 cars since we had our other friends in Unit 2 driving in from NY, Texas, and Florida. We also had 3 cars from our Unit.
Everything was clean, in fact Yana was cleaning right before we got there.
The only thing missing from the Units were full length mirrors.
Over-all we had a BLAST!! And we were so happy with our choice to stay there instead of a hotel. A lot of our friends were a little jealous that they didn't think of the same thing, seeing how much fun we had.
The supermarket was down the road and we saved so much money by cooking most of our meals.
Hopefully, any future rental properties we stay at will have a person like Yana to handle everything.
THANK YOU SO MUCH YANA!!!!!

We stayed at Brownsboro's Nest for 5 days. We were warmly welcome by Yana the owner! The apartment is very spacious with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with showers, a large kitchen and dining/living room along with a family room off the kitchen. The apartment has everything you would need and the kitchen is well stocked! You have free WiiFi and great cable. There 3 television sets. The apartment is very clean. The most important is its location! You are close to everything...airport...Churchill Downs..downtown...shopping malls and tons of great restaurants. One street away is Frankfort Street which has boutiques and fantastic restaurants! Location for sure for us made our stay more pleasurable! The !apartment is ideal for one or two couples.
My family and I had a great time staying at this rental. It was far more convenient than staying in a hotel. There were a couple things that brought the experience down a little. 1st) it was advertised as having 2 bathrooms plus a shower cabinet. We opened every door we found and never found that other shower. 2nd) It was an upstairs unit. My mom has a bad knee and has trouble with stairs, it would have been nice to know ahead of time that there were stairs. 3rd) Really the only "stressful" part of the weekend was the parking situation. The unit shares it's parking area with another unit, I assume we both were told we could bring 3 cars each, and it's possible to fit 6 cars (carefully) into that area. However, there are no lines. The tenants from the other unit arrived before us and just parked wherever they wanted in the space and we weren't able to fit our cars in even though you could see that there was room if they had just parked courteously. I don't know if that's something that the city would have to take care of, or the owner, but it was really annoying.
Again, we had a great time and I would stay again. Just those little things were surprising/stressful.

I found this property to be as described and it certainly measured up to my expections. Yana was very accommodating and helpful. I thought initially it may be a little too far from downtown Louisville, however, we found it was just a couple minutes away and was not "out of the way" at all. It was compfortable and clean, well maintained,and had all amenties needed to enjoy a stay away from home.
