Literally felt like home away from home! This home has beautiful furnishings, modern amenities, felt super safe and we loved having our own house for the weekend. A few animated games of darts were had by our party! So fun! Large new deck off the kitchen made spring evenings on vaca very enjoyable. Highly recommend. 5 star experience. Thx for letting us stay


Really beautifully and tastefully decorated little house in a great area, just as described! We really enjoyed all of the amenities and thoughtful touches the home offered! Well kept yard, space for everyone, and even things to do inside during a rainy day! Proximity to entertainment was very very close, we could definitely walk if we wanted. Felt extremely safe. Could not have asked for a better stay!


We enjoyed the beds so much we asked where they got them! Our group had lots of space to spread out. Very clean and had all amenities listed. We would recommend to anyone and look forward to coming back. Hosts were excellent!


A sweet house in a great location. We visited in order to attend an event downtown and were able to get there easily and quickly. The house is adorable -- nicely decorated and cozy. David was always quick to respond and very helpful. The neighborhood is quiet and safe with shopping and restaurants nearby.


Great place!! The beds were comfortable. The communication with the host was wonderful. Very easy check in/check out process. Very cute home. Would definitely recommend the lemon drop house!


This is a charming older home in one of the best Louisville zip codes. Not party central. Very convenient to local restaurants, shopping and coffee shops. Quiet and safe!


David's place has lots of character and is conveniently located near a variety of stores and bars. David quickly responds to messages, which was helpful and appreciated. I recommend this space.


First all, the place was not clean. I was aware that it was a new listing, but David had many great reviews for his other properties so I thought it’d be okay- wrong. There were stains on the sheets and we found hairs in them as well. The bathrooms looked like they were not cleaned before our arrival (showers and toilets were kinda gross) and there was open found left in the fridge and cabinets. My family and I were staying there because we were in town for my cousin’s visitation and funeral. Unfortunately he passed away unexpectedly. We arrived late on check in day (Sunday) and then the next day (Monday) was the visitation. I messaged David about everything late Monday night and was quickly countered with how many great reviews he had and asked why I did not contact him sooner. After messaging back and forth a few more times I FINALLY got an apology for the state of the house. David then asked what I would suggest he do about it all and I said we deserved some sort of refund, AND THEN HE NEVER MESSAGED ME BACK. Also, when we got back to the house on Monday evening the AC was not working and the whole house was hot, so that was just great. Be forewarned though - even if the AC is working the upstairs bedroom and bathroom are very warm! They unfortunately never cooled off for us. You should also know that the basement bedroom is the ONLY part of the basement that is finished. You can’t tell this from the pictures. My little brother was supposed to sleep down there and then when he saw the basement wasn’t finished he was too creeped out and had to sleep upstairs on the living room couch. There also weren’t any curtains on the windows in the basement bedroom so people could peer in if they wanted to. Overall this was the worst AirBnB experience I’ve ever had. Accommodations and cleanliness are the last things you want to worry about when you’re saying goodbye to a loved one. It made our stay in Louisville that much more awful. I will say though, as annoyed and angry as I am, it does seem like this is unusual for this host. The place was decorated nicely and from the reviews it seemed that most guests (at his other properties) has good stays. I get that you can control somethings but you can control your reaction to them. I feel like David could’ve been much nicer about the situation and down more to accommodate us.


Great location and cute house!


We very much enjoyed our stay at David's place when attending a graduation. The area abounds with coffee shops, restaurants, and boutiques and is perfect for a morning stroll. The house is small, but pleasantly decorated and convenient. The TV system is awesome!


Cute, clean home. 3 nice bedrooms. Restaurants, coffee shops and pubs plentiful and nearby. David is an excellent host.


This is a typical quaint cozy st matthews home. Check in was very easy. The location is great and within walking distance to a great strip of restaurants and bars. The house is an older home and partially renovated but not for someone that is expecting fancy accomodations. One bedroom is in the basement- the bedroom is nice and the rest of the basement is unfinished. The upstairs bedroom is pretty toasty but there is a fan. There were a few bugs in the house as well but it is the beginning of summer in an old house.


Our family of 6 enjoyed our stay at the Lemon Drop! Great location and super-comfortable beds. As a new listing, there are still some details to be worked out (curtains for the basement bedroom, check-in communication, etc), but we'd definitely consider staying here again!


Overall we had a good stay at David's place. Check in and out went smoothly, and there was plenty of space in the house for 6 people to stay comfortably. The neighborhood was very nice and quiet, so was great at night for sleeping. We were also a quick uber ride away from downtown and other areas around town. David was responsive before we arrived and made sure we have all the information we needed. It is worth noting that the house smells like cigarettes - this may have been temporary, and was not particularly overpowering, but we did notice it every time we came into the house.


David's place was awesome, cute and friendly. We came down for a bachelorette party and the house was a perfect home base for us. Its simple, clean and in a good neighborhood. the last day, David was accomadating in allowing for late check out and it was so incredibly kind. We will be back!


Amazing little house (that is actually a lot bigger inside)! Communication with the host was super easy and this location is PERFECT for a Louisville stay! Would definitely book again.

We rented the Lemon Drop for s friend’s wedding at The Olmstead for us and two other couples and it was the perfect location. The accessibility to the restaurants and shops was amazing! We loved being able to walk wherever we wanted! The lockbox was wonderful too! Perfect because we had people from our group arriving at different times! Highly recommend for a weekend getaway.


This was a cute place to stay. Location was great! Had little issues in the kitchen cookware and food was left in the refrigerator and freezer from people before us. Other than that David was great and the place charming.


An amazing place with an excellent location. It’s hard to find 3 bedroom places with 2 baths! We loved being at the Lemon Drop. Easy parking, safe neighborhood, close to everything we wanted - cute shops, great produce places. The style is home comfort and relaxation - everything was there that we needed. There was a big TV in every bedroom, and each bedroom had a comfortable style and memory foam beds! We all slept well. We look forward to staying at David’s place every time we are in town. We had a great time! Thanks, David!!


Very nice home and in a great, quiet location. Within walking distance of groceries, coffee, etc. About a ten minute drive from downtown Louisville. Easy check-in/check-out. Would definitely stay again!


I would not recommend staying at the Lemon Drop. I know that there has been a bad review in the past where the user was badmouthed by the host and it seemed to have been dismissed. We were just in Lousiville for a weekend getaway, and were looking for something in a good location that was affordable. This house was. However, upon arriving, the first thing we noticed was the front screen door. When we opened it, the glass fell out into the person opening the door. Once inside, it smelled HEAVILY of cigarette smoke (despite saying no smoking in the rules). We left shortly after dropping off our bags. When we got back, we took a closer look around and noticed multiple issues. The first one was that there was what looked like a cheeto dust stain on the "freshly laundered" sheets in the main floor bedroom. Also, when walking into the kitchen the floor was very sticky and the fridge had spilled food in it. Multiple rooms had burnt out lightbulbs, and the living room blinds were broken and dirty. Be aware that the basement bedroom is the ONLY finished part of the basement and is very dirty. The side tables were sticky and you could see rings where drinks were left. There were cobwebs on the ceiling, the dryer was held shut with a metal rod, and there was an old cup with a cigarette butt on the window sill. When first expressing our issues with the house, David was very responsive and apologized for the way the house looked. However, he took no responsibility and instead blamed it on the previous guests saying they destroyed the place, which seemed very unprofessional. David also said that if there was anything we needed to just ask. When we asked for replacement sheets for the cheeto bed (and sent him a picture as proof) David did not respond. There are pictures of the things described on Instagram under airbnb_reviews


David’s place is in a nice location and is worth its value.


Main floor of the home is nice, master bedroom was nice. Master bathtub is stained and basement area is a little less finished.


David’s place is super convenient. Each bedroom is on its own level. We found it to be exactly what we needed for our family of 6 adults.


This was a quaint little house. It was very clean with updated furniture and electronics, however the bath towels we were given to dry off with looked to be like rags. They were ragged and frayed, something I would dry my pet off with. The hosts were great communicating and were readily available throughout the duration of our stay. We did experience our car being broken into, but the host, David, was VERY accommodating and helpful during this unfortunate situation. These hosts are willing to go the extra mile to make sure their tenants are safe and have the best experience possible.


Great location. House is updated nicely and can comfortably sleep 6. Beds are very comfortable. Common areas are small to non-usable for parties above 3-4 though. House is a bit loud, so if you have people staying with you take that into consideration for sleeping arrangements. Overall positive experience.


This place is a surprise! You will love it an the beds were so comfy! An we felt like we never left home!


The house will sleep 6 but more than 4 people makes the front room and dining area quite cramped - a pretty good location in the east end and getting around town. We had some issues with heat in the upstairs bedroom since it’s an older house. The hot water heater was turned down - but they were there in 10 minutes to get it fixed which was great


This is a great home! Dont pay any mind to the reviews about the place not being clean. This home was was perfect.


Great place to stay! Only thing was the remote batteries in the living room were dead


The house was great for our family. Exceptional place for a get together.

Everything is okay


The house was very cute, and it had some great touches. I did not realize that there’s a railroad practically in the back yard. You sort of get used to the sound after a while though


We enjoyed our stay in this house. It was conveniently located near several good restaurants and a short drive to downtown. There was even a nice coffee shop in walking distance! The home was clean and all the beds were really comfortable. Check in and out was very easy and communication with the host was great too.


The place was great overall! We only had minor hiccups. The heater didn't work one night, and I'm not sure if maybe we just had it set weird or someone bumped it, but either way I messaged him that night and he came over to fix it the next morning, and even offered to take a night off the cost! We cooked alot, so it would have been nice to have measuring cups and a different selection of pans, the ones they had were a little rusty and warped. We truly loved the space and it's setup very cool. 3 stories, which was awesome since we had 3 couples staying. They had detailed instructions and the check-in was very easy, even letting us check in early. Would definitely stay again.


The location of this house is AMAZING! So many great restaurants and bars are within walking distance! The house perfectly sized for multiple people to stay. All in all the stay was very close to what I expected! Thank you all for having us!


Great location, cute house, would definitely stay here again!!

Very nice house. Loved it!


This house was lovely. It had almost everything you could need in a home away from home. The beds are amazingly cozy as well as the sheets felt so good too. Plenty of towels and even complimentary Body wash and shampoo in the showers. The house has so much space and even the "unfinished" part of the basement was very clean and not "scary" at all. I was so impressed with how quickly we got responses when little things came up and even when asking for tips for our stay. (Most issues were just weather related and had nothing to do with the house specifically. We lost power do to storm). I would recommend this place to any group traveling to this area. And I will for sure bring my business back here too!


This house is located in an established neighborhood, but close enough to restaurants, bars, coffee, and music. I enjoy having a full kitchen and socially friendly communal spaces. This property has that and even a nice yard and back deck. Check-in was easy and the house was ready when we arrived.


Quaint little home in a great area, walking distance to many restaurants and coffee places. Very clean, even the unfinished basement is super clean and not scary at all, you could throw a game room down there easily. Comfortably sleeps 6 adults, but just a note that if some one cannot tolerate the memory foam mattress you may not want to stay here as all the beds are that type, but they worked ok for a few days for us. It would be great to have another seat in the living room to comfortably seat 6 adults, same with the dining table as it can only seat 4. And a bigger coffee pot with 6 coffee cups to drink out of would be nice as the coffee pot only brews 4 cups at a time and there were only 4 coffee cups in the house. If you’re not a coffee drinker than no worries, ha! Overall a cute little place for a few days. The host is also quick to respond and let us take our time checking out which was super nice!


The home was really cute, and located in a really quiet neighborhood. It was in close proximity to everything!!!!


Great location, walking distance to lots of great dining and a very quiet neighborhood.
