About Sharon Holt
Hi! My name is Sharon. I am a retired realtor, native Nashvillian, mother of 2 humans and about 40 animals. Now I operate an animal orphanage that handles special needs animals of multiple species called Big Dog Heaven Animal Care. We also rescue and find forever homes for stray pups on death row at county shelters. A portion of our rental proceeds are forwarded to help support the animal rescue shelter. Big Dog Heaven Animal Care has been my dream for my entire life, and now with the help of travelers like you, we are IN BUSINESS! Thanks so much for your interest in booking with us!
Sharon Holt purchased this House in 2011
Why Sharon Holt chose Goodlettsville
All the necessities of home. Clean, decent place to stay with comfy beds, sheets and towels, pots and pans, washer and dryer, stove refrigerator microwave and coffee pot provided, on a dead end street, a grocery store within walking distance and still only 15-20 minutes from almost anything you can think of in the Nashville Tn area! NO SMOKING INSIDE THE UNIT! We have places set up for outside smoking. We support a 501(c)3 animal rescue charity. And, it's pretty darn private here. Animal and 420 friendly. It's not so fancy, but it's clean and private, and Gloria is just next door if you need anything : )

Good value, friendly people, just like staying at Grandma's.
This was a very peaceful, dog-friendly and safe place to rest our heads. Our dog barked with every little sound at the hotel we stayed at prior to this place, so we were thankful to get the great sleep we did at Echo. We enjoyed talking to the local people, especially the co-owner Gloria who lives next door. She gave us great tips on eating places and things to see. It was nice to have a full sized refrigerator so that we didnt have to eat out every meal.
We'll definitely use this as a home base the next time we visit the area.
Sandra and Jim, Absolutely LOVED having you both stay with us! Hopefully we will see each other again! YOu guys were fantastic guest and I am happy you enjoyed your stay. WE try so hard to keep everything as good as we can for our peeps! Stay safe, healthy and happy...until next time......Gloria and Sharon
Great Place to Rest
We booked a place over a year ago and apparently they cancelled when they heard the NFL draft was coming and could rent for more money. So, we lucked into this location. Convenient to the highway, easy Lyft or drive into Nashville. It is an older place with somewhat dated furniture, but the bed was very comfortable, hot water and great water pressure. The toilet area is a little tight if you're a bigger person. Internet TV so you'll need to know how to Roku or Netflix. We weren't there much except to sleep as we were going pretty non-stop. Our host Gloria was great, right next door and provided extra towels upon request. Only negative was the towels smelled a little like smoke. We would stay here again.
Location was the only downside
The communication was there, the hospitality was there, but presentation was not. We had free WiFi, roku tv but barely used it. My traveling companions were very skeptical when we drove up to the house, due to the locations perception. If you’ve ever had the chance to stay in An Airbnb then this should be no problem to you. Instead of horns honking you have roosters crowing!
Zach, I know you only stayed with us one night, and you were celebrating your birthday with friends. You orig reserved our place due to you planning to bring 2 dogs with you. Obviously as we are PET FRIENDLY and have no size restrictions on these pets, we are in a location that as advertised is PRIVATE. This allows us to allow our guest to bring pets with no problems with neighbors and noise from barking when the pets are left alone and the guest are out doing the tourist things they do. Our heading states it is 15 miles from Nashville, so you should have been understanding we are just a bit out of the hustle and bustle of a largely public area. One of us lives onsite and has for years, so we know it is safe, and are they to assist our guest with whatever they may need. We have never had any police issue on our property, and I swear I have never heard a rooster, so I don't understand that comment at all : ) Are you sure your birthday celebration did not involve human crowing? hahaha We do support a local animal rescue organization charity, but they are not cose enough to hear them for sure...
Cute, quiet, and accommodating!
Gloria was phenomenal and extremely welcoming! The place was clean and quaint. We enjoyed our stay here and would definitely stay again upon returning to Nashville! Definitely recommend this stay!
Gloria had nothing but nice things to say about your visit!
Sorry I did not get to meet you, but I am so happy that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks for another great review to add to our list. We really do try to offer a safe, homey feel here, and would LOVE it if you were to visit with us again : ) All of the animals at the rescue we support also say Thanks for helping them by staying with us. Have a great 2019!
Caution! Don't stay here.
This house is not safe to be in. We checked out after a few hours. One smoke alarm, that doesn't work. Cans of paint stored in closet and kitchen cabinets. Water leaks from outside into kitchen cabinets. Black mold in kitchen cabinets. Used razor, wiskers, dirt and rust in medicine cabinet. Piles off dirt and pet hair behind furniture and appliances. Everything is filthy dirty. I wiped up a wet spot on the floor and the paper towel turned black. Fenced back yard is very small, has long grass and weeds, tree limbs and outside furniture is four plastic chairs covered with mold. NO cable or satellite tv as promised. An antenna wire is run from tv up over a picture on the wall and gets a couple channels. Roku connected to tv but gets free content only, no subscription included. Toilet is loose an rocks. Refrigerator has drain pan to catch water that runs out of freezer. I was told that when if I left the house during my stay I was required to put the key in the lock box so the owner could get in??? Don't book a stay at this place, even if it's the last place available in TN. After showing the owner all the problems with her house, she still should give us a full refund. She kept $255. VRBO was was very nice and paid for a hotel room for our entire stay.
First anyone with any experience renting thru the Home Away/VRBO site KNOWS that the homeowners DO NOT HANDLE THE MONEY! So, in essence, that alone shows you are uneducated on how this is done, and also a liar. I did NOT charge or keep the $255 you mention. Your remarks are unfounded and not true, you say you stayed "a few hours"...you stayed overnight! Your host, Gloria was onsite and met you @ your arrival, she went inside the apt with you and ask you if all was ok, showed you how to access the TV! You had ample opportunity IF you actually saw any issues to address them at that point. My other reviews are 5 stars and happy guest. If your concerns were TRUE regarding any REAL issues you had (when we were showing you how to use the TV) when you" first arrived", you should have stated them then. You SPENT THE NIGHT, SHOWERED AND EVEN COOKED while there, did not even take out your own trash(to the can located just outside the entry door) when you left. You also had a dog that you did NOT pay a fee for...all you seem to have really wanted is a FREE STAY. You harassed me for days after you checked out, regarding your refund, even though I explained" in full extent "that I do not handle the funding, you are misleading in your comments on this review to the point of a possible civil suit being enacted by me regarding this matter for loss of business. And the real point is.....the TV programs available would not offer you a pay per view sports channel you just had to have, Right? The guest prior to you had removed the battery from the fire alarm as she was cooking a large thanksgiving dinner for her and her family who very much enjoyed their stay with us, and forgot to put the battery back inside. That, is really all you have correct on this property, and YES it has a battery again now. I am copying the communication I sent you for the world to see..." I cant do anything about their fees Randy. You should know that. It is an issue you need to take up with them. I have agreed to accept the one night charge, the cleaning fee, the taxation, has to be legally collected, NOTE: the site fees are 100% controlled by the site and they do not refund commissions. My charges are accurate. You owe me a total of $144.36 which includes the one night fee, reset/cleaning fee, the hotel occupancy, city, county, state & federal taxes. I was also kind & early released a $200 damage deposit back to you early. The remaining you need to speak to them about, I have NO power on the $.
Incredible pet friendly.
Incredible pet friendly. Very nice owners. Cozy. Close to downtown Nashville and near about anything you might want to do.
Regina, We totally enjoyed having your pups....and you HAHA : ) Hope to see you again! Have a great holiday season!
Goodlettsville is know for it's antique shopping experiences. Multiple stores filled with history! Reminds you of Mayberry.
