Blue Acres is a very unique house that can accommodate a party of one or ten! There are actually two houses on site - a main house and a back house.
The main house features two bedrooms with queen sized beds plus a walk-through third bedroom with a twin bed (as well as an air mattress), so there's lots of room to spread out. We are also happy to provide a pack-n-play to accommodate little ones. The main house also features two bathrooms, plenty of closet space, a nice den and two dining areas, and a laundry room with washer and dryer, which you are welcome to use.
The kitchen comes complete with fridge, gas stove, dishwasher, coffee maker, and microwave - all you need for an overnight stay or multi-week visit.
The back house has two bedrooms (a queen and a standard) and a full bath, along with a beautiful kitchen and den combo. The back house is only included in your reservation if you make a reservation for ten people.
The listing is priced for one guest or ten - the price will adjust according to how many people you add to your group. Note that if you reservation is for one to six people, it will be just for the main house. If your group has more than six people, please make a reservation for ten in order to include both houses.
The large backyard has a six foot privacy fence, so you'll have the backyard all to yourself. If the weather permits, enjoy some time on the brick patio, soaking up the Memphis sun.
There are dedicated parking spaces for you in the driveway. (If you are in more than two cars, there's plenty of additional space on the street.) You will have private access, so you can come and go any time.
Interaction with Guests
The house is all yours, so kick back and relax. Keys are provided via combination keybox. Before your arrival, we will provide instructions for check in and check out.
The house is centrally located in Normal Station, the residential area by the U of M. Go Tigers! It's a great neighborhood, two minutes from campus and just a ten minute drive or Uber from Midtown, Downtown or East Memphis.
The house is just a half-mile from tennis, golf and the Memphis Botanical Gardens. The Links at Audubon Park is an 18 hole golf course. A round is $30 during the week, $36 on the weekend (both prices are with a golf cart). Leftwich Tennis Center features four indoor and eight outdoor courts, and the Memphis Botanical Gardens offers beautiful gardens, a summer concert series and the amazing Big Backyard for kiddos.
Other Things to Note
Let us know if we can do anything to help make your stay in Memphis more pleasant.
Pets will be considered based on size and breed. A $50 pet fee will be charged at the time your reservation is made. Please provide a photograph of your pet for consideration. All pets must be crated when the owner is not present. Please be sure to pick up any pet waste out of the yard and dispose of it. A dog crate/bed is provided for your use if needed. Please keep all pets off of the furniture and beds. Thank you for respecting our home in this way.
Note: If your reservation does not include both the main house and the back house, it is likely that another guest will be staying in the other spot. (We do have the back house listed separately for renting when the main house is occupied by a smaller group.) That being said, there is plenty of room for all cars and enough space between the two parts of the property to allow for privacy for all guests.
