About Property Manager/Owner
Jim is a retired photographer, now a property manager; Rebecca is a retired teacher, now painting and co-managing the short-term rental properties. We both love to travel. Jim loves to cook and garden. Rebecca loves to practice yoga, swim, read, paint, and write. Rebecca taught French for many years. We love to visit French-speaking countries. Jim speak a bit of Spanish and is a pro a Mexican cuisine, so we love to travel to Spanish-speaking countries as well. Jim is a native Memphian, so he know a lot about the city and its history. Rebecca is a native Arkansas, graduating with a master's degree in English from the University of Arkansas. We have a son, Carter, who, along with his girlfriend, live in Pasadena, CA. We enjoy trips to see them as well.
Property Manager/Owner purchased this Apartment in 2004
Why Property Manager/Owner chose Vollintine-Evergreen
This duplex on Crump Ave., a quiet street off of McLean Blvd., was a long-term rental before. It was purchased as rental property. We wanted to try the short-term rental option. So far, it has been a very pleasant and worthwhile experience. We love hosting guests from all over the US and world.
What makes this Apartment unique
The Getaway is very convenient, very close to Overton Park where the Memphis Zoo, Brooks Museum, and the Levitt Shell are located. It is also just a few steps from the Greenline, beautiful hiking/biking trail which goes west to the Sears Concourse and east to Shelby Farms Park. It is just blocks from Rhodes College, a straight shot to downtown using the Parkway. We sincerely enjoyed sharing our original photographs and paintings, furnishing the apartment, choosing the color scheme. We are experienced STR hosts and take pleasure in offering safe, convenient, and pleasant accommodations for visitors to Memphis. We believe our property gives visitors a sample of what is best about our city and our neighborhood.
