Guestbook comments from the owner

We so enjoyed our three nights at this clean, green get away! Located in an amazing residential neighborhood in the heart of Nashville, the best part of our stay was taking the time for a couple of morning strolls--one through the neighborhood and the other through Vanderbilt university's campus. We truly loved everything about it. The beds were comfortable and clean with crisp, white linens. The apartment is decorated in an interesting, stylish, and simple way. We were very comfortable and at home which says a lot since we traveled with our five month old! We would recommend it to anyone!

Traveled to Nasheville for a conference at Vanderbilt. This locatio was perfect as I was able to walk to the courses. Quiet and safe neighborhood. Easy parking. Comfortable for myself and my two daughters. Also, very accessible to downtown and all sites

Cozy, comfortable, responsive host & highly walkable location

  • 5 of 5

This unit was one of the most comfortable we've been in. Not huge, but great, great beds, washer and dryer in bathroom with seventh generation laundry detergent ready to use.and a fully equipped kitchen. Everything worked, not usually something to mention, but we've stayed in many places where one thing or another wasn't working. One morning, Christmas Eve day, we had no hot water. Within minutes I received a response and it was remedied within a few hours with many updates sent by the host. When returning to Nashville we will look no further and stay here again. Being able to walk to parks, cafes, movies, and a grocery is another huge asset. Thanks for an awesome Christmas experience!

Super cozy, comfortable & convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during Vanderbilt Family Weekend. The flat was perfect for our needs - plenty of room for everyone. No complaints. It is located closest to the stadium/Blair School of Music part of Vanderbilt campus, so we walked to the football game. We are newer visitors to Nashville, and the owner was very accessible and responsive to our questions. At first we were nervous about finding street parking, but we never had an issue finding a spot close to or in front of the house. BONUS: The water pressure in the shower is great :)
