A lovely house with a few quirks
We just stayed at Mia's house over the Thanksgiving holiday. Mia is fantastic. Her communication and friendliness were just amazing. Not only did she let us use her Mercedes SUV during our stay, she installed the appropriate car seats for our 2 young sons, FedEx'd keys to me, parked and left the car at the Memphis International Airport for us to pick up on arrival, and then let us drop the car off again at the airport when we left! That made everything so much easier for us.
She put out so many age appropriate books and toys for my sons, and even had new toys waiting for them. We ordered Instacart to have food delivered to her house before we arrived, and she had it put away in the fridge and cupboards. The house is spacious and was just great for the 4 of us.
She has a washer and dryer and they work very well, but just know that they are smaller than your standard front loading washer and dryer and you'll end up doing more loads. The sink in the first bathroom off the hall is strange. Beautiful but very limited in its usefulness. Water splashes everywhere. Not a huge deal, but just don't plan on washing your face there.
While the house looked clean at first glance, we realized the floors (which are lovely) had a lot of dust on them. We used a Swiffer and Wet Swiffer to get them clean. Also the gray rug in the playroom was loaded with many tiny toys and pieces of toys and coins and even a thumbtack. Nobody got hurt, but when I shook it the rug out it just rained all these minuscule objects on the floor. I swept them up and put them on the bookshelf and then it was fine.
There was initially a shortage of towels, but Mia remedied that pretty quickly.
Even with these minor complaints, we were overall very happy to be staying there. The next time we go to Memphis to see my family, we'll definitely check to see if Mia's house is available. It's priced higher than many nice short term rental houses in my Silver Lake neighborhood in Los Angeles, but it was certainly the nicest option we could find in the East Memphis area.
