a quiet getaway close to the action
We (2 couples) spent a relaxing Labor Day weekend in Memphis. The condo had everything we needed. There were some interesting quirks, like the grill is actually in a shared area of the grounds, the location is right on train tracks so we did hear some train noises at reasonable hours, a frying pan of grease left in the oven and food in the refrigerator, and the living room television had some issues getting the football game on ABC (just ABC) to come in clearly with sound, but the TV downstairs received it perfectly, so we just turned down the sound upstairs and turned up the sound downstairs. :)
The third bedroom downstairs would have been a bit awkward to use if we'd had a third couple since the bed was between the front door and the door to the garage, but we could have made it work if we'd needed it.
The distance to Beale Street and all the sights and sounds of Memphis was great. We could get to the places we wanted to see within a short drive and didn't have to hear all the late night parties upon returning. We definitely got our exercise going up and down the stairs from the garage on the first floor to the second floor living area and the third floor bedrooms, but the rooms upstairs were very private and comfortable.
Not recommended for kids due to the metal stairs, but it was great for 4 adults looking to get away from the craziness of life for a few days!
Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay. The grills are located in common areas as is the case in most condo type living as we are not allowed to have them on the balcony due to fire hazard. We do tell our housekeepers to keep leftover condiments and spices in the kitchen as it makes it more convenient for incoming guests. We stock spices, coffee and Splenda, toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, liquid soap and dishwasher detergent as well. Condiments and spices are very expensive and it doesn't make sense to throw them out. My guests are only here for a short time and most of them appreciate the fact that they do not have to run out and buy these things. The TV situation will be taken care of. The signal problem has not happened before so I am sure it will be an easy fix. Everyone staying at my townhouse has my cell phone number included in the check in instructions and are encouraged to call me if they have any issues arise while they are there. Even small ones.
We turned the downstairs room into a third bedroom as we typically have six guests staying. The room has a closet and large bath with walkin shower so it is designed to be a third bedroom even though its on its own floor. It's a great room and works really well for most folks. We do advertise that we are a three story condo so yes, we have stairs. And I always tell people with children that we are not set up for small ones because of the stairs. The way my condo is set up allows for everyone to spread out and have some privacy if they like. The condo is located in the downtown area very convenient to all Memphis has to offer. I am glad you appreciated the quietness and convenience. Memphis is a train town so there are tracks all around downtown. I am glad you felt the condo was quiet in spite of the city noises. Please know that I take very good care of my guests and if any issues arise during their stay they only need to call me and I will take care of it immediately. My housekeeping staff prides themselves on the way they take care of my condo and you can see that reflected in the other reviews. Thanks!
