Fully furnished duplex apartment on dead end street, exit 98 on I-65 and the place is only 1 mile down! (About 13 miles to the North of downtown Nashville). Pets ok with pre-approval, and addt'l fee of approx. $10 per night per pet. This amount goes (in full) to a local special needs animal rescue. The pet fee depends on more information regarding the pet, so please forward breed, age, weight, etc. Pets must be crated while you are away from the apartment, or we can board at the shelter we sponsor, and sometimes we dogsit for our guest. Crates can be rented from the shelter we support for about $5. This apartment features a full size kitchen with utensils , a refrigerator, stove, dw, and washer/dryer. It has 2 sofa's in the LR that make 2 twin size beds. It has a separate bedroom with a Queen bed that has a new memory foam mattress that is "unbelievably comfy", and another separate bedroom with a twin bed and recliner. It has a fenced rear yard for pets to play, and a convenience store you can walk to in 1 Minute. A library, community center, police station, Subway, Dollar General, Waffle House all about 3 minutes away. It is about 5 minutes (one exit, 2 miles) from all kinds of food sources, banks, post office, shopping, and the antique stores that Goodlettsville is known for. Downtown Nashville honkey tonks and football games etc are about a 15-20 minute drive time away ($22 approx with Lyft), and we are Lyft partners, so when you stay if you use our special code you receive upon check in, you get ride discounts! Airport is less than 30 minutes. Oprymills, Grande Ole Opry etc only about 15-20 minutes. If you want POSH, this is not it, but if you want a quiet, clean, decent place to hang out....THIS IS IT! Owner on site. Smoking allowed outside only, 3 areas for such. When you leave you will be responsible for broom clean condition. Available for booking 1-89 days. Weekly discounts available! Driveway has space for 2 cars side by side. Part of our proceeds go to a local animal shelter for support. WE are very animal friendly. Note: The back yard is private, privacy fenced, no other houses close, and level with grass and a big shade tree. We allow pets inside of course, but we do ask that you clean up after your pet, (inside an outside) you will be responsible for any and all damages, and if you are doing the tourist things and will be gone, we can suggest the following choices: Ask if we can go over and let your pup out for bathroom breaks, or, possibly we can babysit them at the shelter while you "paint the town", and we require that you crate them while you are away. Sometimes even the best dog baby in the world will get separation anxiety when in a new place, new smells, and mom and dad missing, and this place does not smell like you , so the abandonment fear can take hold. You are responsible for any damages, and we don't want your pup in stress, so make sure you arrange something with us prior to you leaving for the entire day etc. We love animals, we do animals every day! The shelter is only about 8 minutes from the apartment, and we both volunteer there, so we can run home and check on your pup. We do suggest addt'l donations to the shelter for babysitting your pup. All the pups at the rescue LOVE treats! So treats are always something we like for you to donate. Big Dog Heaven Animal Care says "Thanks for staying in our place!" Some of our reviews state concerns regarding a smell, this unit is only rented to travelers and is not occupied daily.Sometimes it is closed up for several days with only a fan on and it was built in the 50's...Nashville has had extra rain, and extra high humidity levels this summer...I smell nothing, some other guest smell nothing, some say they do, we put air freshners in and the next guest complains about the air fresheners, so, what to do??. It is clean, it does have brand new vinyl (pet friendly) flooring which has a new smell, is this is the smell??? Anyway, the vinyl is laid on concrete in a garage conversion area for, the secondary bedroom, which even with the backing my be sweating??? And the kitchen used to be the garage years and years ago which now has ceramic tile. During heavy rain I suppose it could get a bit damp underneath but that is why we have a dehumidifier in the unit, to insure our guest have every option of a great stay. IF you get here and you are not happy, immediately let us know, and we will correct any issue you think you may have if at all possible. IF you stay several days, check out,and act as though everything is great, then leave a bad review, well, that's just not the appropriate action. Like I said it is not POSH, not for this price, but it is clean, and like going to grandma's...….IF it was not clean it would smell like a evbody ever says it smells like a dog. I think we have some "copycats" on the reviews!! The real truth is, these few bad reviews are unfounded, were not reported properly to us during the stays, and since we support a hurts the charity. So sad, so very sad. But is you notice, we have many great reviews!! And we will continue to have them! Some of our former guest have become friends, and we still communicate, some still donate to the animal rescue, and some have even visited the rescue and handed out treats! One couple, even adopted while here.

Great stay - especially with dogs! Clean and comfortable! Attentive host!
What a great find! A clean and clean comfortable place that accepts (enjoys) dogs! We had a great weekend in Nashville and it was worth the short drive to have a dog-friendly accomodations. The house was clean and it was easy to find off the interstate. Thank you very much!
Really enjoyed meeting you and having you stay as well ! Thanks for the review, and all the special needs animals at Big Dog Heaven Animal Care Rescue also thank you and your family for helping us help them.....Hope to see you again.
This was a perfect place to stay,, not to far from Nashville and right off the highway.. But, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle!! Gloria and Sharon were awesome and did everything to make sure our stay was comfortable and had everything we need!! ☺
Rental was clean, bed comfortable, plenty of hot water n area quiet. Gloria was great to work w n we were glad we could help the animal shelter. Would stay again. would have enough beds for a family or small group
Clean and comfortable
This is the perfect place if you're traveling with pets! The fact that the house isn't all shiny and new is a benefit then -- you're not on edge about what the dogs might chew or get fur on. The bed is comfy, the area is quiet, and the hosts are really friendly!
Comfortable, clean and Enjoyable stay. And the cost was a bargain at that!!!
We had a very enjoyable stay here. The place was very clean when we arrived and all the essentials were there to use. Plenty of everything right down to the papertowels & toilet paper. We loved the location as it wasn't that far and quick to interstate to downtown Nashville. The host Sharon was wonderful to deal with and responded quickly with correspondence. Miss Gloria was next door and just a delight. I loved the (Right at home feeling we got staying here. We will come again!) loved the hot water and water pressure for the shower (a pet peeve of mine so that was great!) Air conditioning worked great and there was a humidifier available which we liked. The television has access to over 10,000 movie with Roku and movie channels plus live t.v on Pluto. Wi-Fi available. The beds were amazing. Even the pull out couches have great matresses (theres 2) with memory foam ( that usualy never is the case with a pull out couch so that was a great addition ). Everything worked and was functional and the neiborhood is quiet, private & peaceful and well the overall experience was a good one and we travel about 75% of the year..So I'm giving this place a 5 star and an eternal thumbs up for the effort in making your home feel like our home..Thanks again and we will be back. Eileen
Wow, what a great review. I can tell you put a lot of thought into that, and I very much appreciate the remarks and time spent on making them. I am so happy you stayed for 2 weeks and enjoyed it all. You obviously work very hard, long hours when you travel, as you were away every day for quite a while. I knew you would love the memory foam mattresses! I hope you do come back thru the Nashville area, and stay with us again. We have several who do come back, and we always look forward to seeing them again. Be safe on your travels, until next time.....be happy.
Sharon and Gloria
Oh, and Gloria says she really enjoyed meeting you both, and that you left the place in great condition. She too hopes you do return.
Very nice owner, not a very nice property.
Nashville is my favorite city and we left a night early just because we couldn’t stand to stay another night in this house! My family and I were only going to be in Nashville for 2 nights, Friday and Saturday. We found this and thought it looked decent with a great price. When we got there, it was really smelly. Honestly it just smelled old and musky. It hadn’t been cleaned thoroughly considering there were old, used wash cloths in the shower. The hot water wouldn’t work so we had to find the breaker box ourselves to fix it. It was so hot in the house, even with air conditioners, that we couldn’t even sleep in the room off the kitchen. We had to use the pullout couch beds which were so uncomfortable that we hardly slept at all. Literally everything needs updating. The only positive is that Gloria is SO nice. If it weren’t for that, this place wouldn’t deserve any stars.
Madison L. You never said anything to us about any of this...after you checked out you started demanding I return the $200 security deposit, I tried to tell you" I dont hold the money for that the site does" 4 times. You badgered me with this $200 refund issue even after VRBO had verified they had already paid you the $200 deposit back. Then, you said I was rude because I could not refund your money, but you already had the refund...I can't help the site held it for (less than a week), and you needed it to buy (in your words) concert tickets. That has nothing to do with me or my unit. You statement is not accurate about it being unclean, we told your mom the water heater breaker was off and she said "no problem we will flip it on". So THERE IS HOT WATER, You got mad at me on something I have no control over, and you have attempted to ruin my business. The house was built in the 50's...so it might smell like a 1950's house. It is not rented everyday and Nashville has had it's rainiest season so far.....Nashville always has allergy issues and this season had x-high humidity which could cause smells, why we have a dehumidifier in the unit. The details we describe about this property are accurate, & it clearly says "IF you want POSH, this in not it, If you want clean, comfy and homey this is it" I stand firm on my reports, not yours, as you are angry you did not get your concert tickets and your security deposit back the same day you left. Your review is unreasonable, vicious, and false. If it was unclean, you would have let me know as soon as you walked in the bathroom on day 1... not (over 2 weeks) after you left. And you would have also requested a refund of your booking fee, which you did not. We have sent many text after you left, and this is the FIRST mention of any issues with the apartment, you only complained about the security deposit refund taking 5 days and also it refunding during a holiday weekend where the banks were closed an addtl day, NOT MY FAULT And, your mom told us you were leaving early because 1. your pet sitter was leaving a day early, 2. you were all "vacationed out". I gave you a 5 star rating "which I wish I could revoke". However, I know this was your first VRBO trip, you have no idea what you are doing or talking about, nothing to compare our place too, and with your false perceptions and improper reviews and actions, you probably will never ever get another 5 star review so enjoy it. Peace!
Goodlettsville is know for it's antique shopping experiences. Multiple stores filled with history! Reminds you of Mayberry.
Additional information about rental rates
Please do not use more beds than the number of persons booked. If you do, there will be an additional charge upon check out for $20 which covers the laundry and maid service fees for the additional bed change. Pet fees are on a PER NIGHT charge and may be paid as an additional adult when booking. Fees may be adjusted depending on the pet, number of pets, size of pet, age of pet, or temperament of pet. Best if you speak with me PRIOR so we can be precise on handling the pet charges, and establish a fair charge for such individual pet per rental. Also we add an additional $25 for cleaning after the pets visit for a total cleaning charge of $65 when you stay with pets. YOU are responsible for all damages. IF you travel with pets, we ask to be present when you check out to do a final walkthrough to check for damages, TOGETHER. WE do not give refunds. IF you check out alone, and we enter to clean and find damages, we will ask you to return to file a damage claim. If you do not return, we will file, give no refund of your payments/security deposit, and/or may continue and file civilly if necessary for recovery.
