About John and Pamela Christmas

JOHN - I'm born and raised in Memphis. I am a musician, singer/songwriter, audio producer. I also build recording studios through out the country. I enjoy motorcycle riding, concerts, hiking and cycling. I am a vegan and love to cook and garden.

PAM - We are new the vacation rental community and we are excited to meet our guests! I am originally from Liberty, Missouri. I am a graduate of the University of Colorado at Boulder. John and I lived happily in this home for 7 years then decided to turn it into rental property. We rented it for years but this year we decided to change it to a vacation rental.

John and Pamela Christmas purchased this house in 2002

Why John and Pamela Christmas chose Tennessee

There's so much to see and do in Memphis. You are close to everything as we are right of the 240-40 interchange. Our home has a large half acre yard. It is very spacious inside. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you could need to cook yourself some lovely meals.

What a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this house. John was such a gracious host. The house was clean, comfortable and a fully stocked kitchen. The fresh fruit was a very nice touch. The house was perfect for the three of us. I would highly recommend this property for a visit to Memphis!

Truly a home away.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and sister and I stayed 4 days at John and Pamela's while our other sister was a patient at Baptist Memorial Hospital. The location was very convenient to the hospital, as well as restaurants, shopping, etc. We found the Blue Plate Cafe on Poplar and had an excellent breakfast. There is a new Walmart conveniently nearby for grocery shopping.

The property was very clean and well maintained and had everything we needed. John was very welcoming. One night we inadvertently left a car window open. John woke us that morning to let us know it was going to rain and when my husband went out to close the window, John was holding a towel or blanket over the window to keep out the rain that had just started. He went above and beyond.

We are so glad we stayed here rather than a hotel. It was very quiet and private and we enjoyed all the comforts of home. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend this property.

This location is the perfect spot to explore the city of Memphis. John is an excellent host and gave us many tips to navigate Memphis. His recommendations of restaurants was spot-on. The house is very comfortable and clean. We will stay there again if vacationing in Memphis! Thanks.

Comfortable and Quiet!

  • 5 of 5

After spending three days at the Beale St Music Festival, this property was the perfect retreat! The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. I have trouble sleeping away from home but had no problems falling asleep here! Comfortable furnishings and VERY clean! John made sure we knew our way around the house and town, and also was very accessible if we had any questions. Loved our stay! If attending the festival next year, bring rain/ mud boots!!!

Perfect House!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came down to Memphis for our son's wedding. We needed something that was conveniently located to the church and the reception hall. This house was great! We could hop on the highway to get to the church and the reception hall in no time. It's close to the highway but tucked away in a nice neighborhood that is quiet. The house is very clean and the owners add little touches to make your stay relaxing. We would definitely recommend this house for your stay in Memphis.

Notes:
Our updated and remodeled home was the original farmhouse and the neighborhood was the farm. Over time the farmer sold off parts of his land and the neighborhood built up around it. Several of the homes in the neighborhood are on large pieces of land (2 acres to the left of us and two acres across the street from us) and many other of the houses are just normal neighborhood home. You get a nice mix of country and suburbs in our neighborhood. We are right down the street from Shelby Farms which is a huge park.
