I really enjoy living at LC Idlewild. Its a beautiful property in a great location. The people are nice and it's extremely dog friendly. The only thing I don't like is the small pool. It's super crowded during the summer because it's so small. I would recommend expanding it if possible. I would also recommend creating two dog parks for small and big dogs. We have nice open areas between building, which would be perfect for much needed parks. It also would be a great way to meet other dog loving neighbors.
Hi Melinda, We really appreciate your feedback and your suggestions! Let us know if there is anything else that we can address or take care of for you!
It is nice living in a community where there is always something to do, whether it's group fitness classes, trivia at the Goat, or holiday events. It is extremely enjoyable living in our apartment. The residents are also friendly and helpful. We love our apartment
Thanks for the review Megan! Let us know what else we can do to make your time here the best it can be :)
PARKING I live in the back of the complex so parking is super easy and there is tons of it. However, the closer you live to The Goat, the worse the parking gets. NOISE Personally, I'm not bothered by hearing my neighbors upstairs walk around. It's part of living in an apartment complex. This isn't for everyone though. For instance, the neighbors living right below us came and asked us to keep it down the first week we moved in. Keep in mind, there are two of us and we had no dog or kids running around so they literally just heard our foot steps and probably our dropping boxes and stuff the first two days of moving in. 3-4 months into their lease later they've moved out. Not sure it had to do with us but if it did then I really hope they rented a house next as I TIP TOED after they came and told us to keep it down. Summary There is a normal amount of noise so don't move in here if you're going to be unreasonable about noise expectations. GROUNDS Beautiful buildings and landscaping. However, this is the East End which means we've got some spoiled individuals that just REFUSE to pick up their dog's waste. I've stepped in dog waste twice so keep this in mind. I also have about 1800 cigarettes on the ground outside my apartment but that's not a complex-wide issue. Super pretty and clean complex in general. CONSTRUCTION The apartments are definitely fancy looking yet cheaply made. I'm happy because I don't care at all about fixing cabinet knobs falling off, flickering lights, etc. AND they've been good about fixing work orders quickly. STAFF Staff are super patient and nice and helpful Overall I adore the gym and the location. If it weren't for the free gym classes and convenient parking, I'd say the price isn't worth it. There is dog waste everywhere but that's a tenant issue as LC tries really hard to get people to clean up their pet's waste. SUMMARY CONS If you move in to any apartment complex accept you're going to hear your upstairs neighbors. It's not their job to make sure you don't experience the commonly known negatives of living in an apartment. There is dog waste everywhere so stay off the grass at all costs. East Enders drive like crazy people and frequently drive the wrong way in the traffic circles so drive really slow through the complex. SUMMARY PROS Beautiful Complex and clean looking. The staff is the best. The gym and gym classes are so great. The apartments are very nice and spacious. The trash collection service is super convenient. The location is great for eating and drinking out in Middletown or if you're a Frankfort commuter as I am.

Fun, affordable place to live with a roommate, with lots of things today and nice people to interact with.
Hi Andy, Glad you're having fun here at Idlewild! Let us know if you ever need anything!
We had lived here for 4 months, and we absolutely love it Management is friendly and professional, the yoga classes are a delightful weekly treat, and The Goat is a convenient place to meet friends for a homebody like me Neighbors are friendly, and I love how people like to sit out on their porches in the evenings and talk to each other. A large number of residents grow vegetables on their balconies or in their flower beds, which is lovely. We also feel very safe here. The community is super dog-friendly, and I appreciate how management will take the time out of their day to give our dogs treats when we walk by the office. Our few maintenance issues have always been taken care of in a timely manner. We have also never had any trouble finding parking. It's a quiet neighborhood as well. And we've never lived anywhere that has such great events I means seriously- a dinner cruise How cool is that LC Idlewild is an all-around classy place, and we plan on sticking around for quite some time. I don't think you'll find anything else like it in Louisville
Hi Mary, Thank you so much for your kind words! We love having you guys here on site and seeing the pups is always a treat:) Let us know if you ever need anything!
It's a good experience. Despite the drama involved with my move in day, the office staff were accommodating and offered acceptable consolations. I'm happy with my apartment thus far and have had no significant problems with it. I pay a little outside of my comfort zone for rent, but I think it's been worth it for what I get out of it.
Hi Jacob, We're glad you are enjoying your time here and we were able to make the experience great for you! If you ever have questions or need anything, always feel free to call or email us!

Hi Kendra! Thanks for your feedback! We are so happy that you are happy :) Let us know if you need anything!
I would tell them that it is like a small city that is for young professionals.
Thanks for your feedback Anton! You know where to find us if you ever need us for anything!
Issues are not resolved within a timely manner, been waiting on a repair to be executed for almost 4 weeks now with little to no effort put forth. Made several appearances to the main office asking for updates on the matter, they would always reassure me they would follow up with me via phone after each attempt. Finally received notification on the repair update after my third appearance to the office. The amount of effort put forth by the tenant should not exceed that of the property management. Parking also becomes a issue especially on the weekends with The Goat crowd.
Hi Harry, Thanks for your feedback, we really appreciate hearing from you. We hope that going forward if you have any issues, we can take care of you in a timely fashion! If you ever need anything or want to talk to us about your experience more, feel free to call or stop into the office!
Everything is great except parking and maintenance. Parking is very limited from 5-9pm or so. During any busy times at the Goat or when they have events you have to park on the other side of the complex. You can move your car closer after 10 or 11pm as most cars clear out. Maintenance is very quick to respond to issues, but I have had the same issue every six weeks with my air conditioner, and instead of doing a proper repair OR replacement, they just wait until I call when it is no longer cooling and come back an fill up with refrigerant. This is making my energy bill expensive and a pain to have to make arrangements for my dog so they can come in and service it again.
Hi Kyle, Thanks for your feedback! We appreciate hearing from you as it will only make your and others experiences better here. Thanks for sharing your experience with us! If you ever wish to talk to us in more detail about your time here, we would be happy to touch base with you!
