About Diane Sesler

In 2010 we lost our home and most of our personal belongings to the devastating Nashville flood. It wasn’t an easy process but there’s a spark of sunshine in every situation. We lived in the backyard of our flooded inhabitable home in a 33’ trailer for over a year. It took that much time for the government to go through with their promises.

Humor, among other qualities, kept us afloat. How can you not find humor with 2 people living in a backyard in a teenie weenie trailer with 1 giant Doberman named Nookie Pookie and a bad tempered cat named Monster.

It was business as usual for my husband David who is a computer programmer. I began a blog called Sardines In The Hood. It kept me sane. One of my stories was published in The Tennessean newspaper and an online magazine Dancing Noodle picked up some of my stories. It was my first time at being professionally paid for writing. I’m a visual artist who likes to work with paper. I have done sculptures and other types of artwork that have been featured in galleries, boutiques and shows.

We both love nature. We are passionate about the environment and animals. Our flooded home overlooked the Cumberland River. We sat on our dock many nights looking at sunsets, observing migrating birds, and other creatures that made us appreciative of what we had in our life.

When we found this home it needed a lot of work. It wasn’t pretty but we had a vision. The government finally bought our flooded property so that we were able to move on and finally live in a home after 1 ½ years. We cleaned, painted, renovated and made this new home joyful. Part of the landscape was designed by people who do foodscaping. All the flowers, bushes, trees have a purpose that feeds the animals as well as humans. We hope this becomes a popular trend with everyone on this earth. We also have started a vegetable garden. We hope to have plenty of vegies to share with our guests.

We are happy.

May this home bring you happiness too.

Diane & David

Diane Sesler purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Diane Sesler chose Nashville

Peaceful ...overlooking park but close to many restaurants, galleries, shops, bakeries, pubs, and of course downtown. Our beautiful art gallery/meditation room is loved by everyone. East Nashville is home to many musicians, artists, a fantasic web of eclectic and artistic community .

What makes this townhome unique

Certified Wildlife Habitat. We provide a designed landscape which organically feeds both humans and animals. Some plants, trees & bushes were here when we purchased the property. We have tried since then to implement many new indigenous species. A perfect blend with the picturesque park which borders the property. It is the best of both world ...staying in a green property but close to downtown

Perfect Nashville Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house we stayed in was excellent! It was clean, roomy, and a perfect location for pretty much everything we were doing. This was our third stay here, and we are excited to come back!

Has it all

  • 5 of 5

Our family had room to be comfortable, cook great meals, and play with the dog. We could run and bicycle at the park next door and Uber to town for a concert and night out. We will be back. Thanks Dave and Diane!

Perfect home!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we first spoke with the owners we knew this was where we wanted to stay. When we arrived we were greeted with a lovely note welcoming us and Goo Goo candies for all of us. They are delicious and you will want to get more. The house location is perfect. It's only minutes from Downtown Nashville and there are really cute places within 2 miles of the house as well, plus a nice park right next door. Across the street was tennis courts, basketball and a play area for smaller kids. We thought to bad we didn't bring rackets to play, but to our surprise they had some rackets and balls at the house. You will love how the home is decorated, it's so cute. It has a lower level that has a living room with a nice tv and board games another room to gather in and a bedroom plus a half bath with washer and dryer included. The upper level has two more bedrooms and another family room with a tv. The kitchen has everything you'll need to cook with and to get you started like coffee filters and paper towels. The bathroom upstairs is a full bath with tub and shower. They owners really have lots a little things there in case you would happen to forget something. Which was so nice since something always gets forgotten. I wanted to also mention that the house was super clean too. We will definitely stay here again!

Great house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The place was very nice with everything needed. The location was great - close to the dog park to take a walk and a short drive to the city and just about everything else. Our family really enjoyed it, thank you!

Great house... bigger than we anticipated!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a girls weekend with my sister and daughters.... the house was so roomy. It was very clean and we loved the patio in the backyard and the deck to the side. We walked in the park too. It was only a $7 Uber ride downtown and we loved all the restaurants and bars! I highly recommend this home. Diana was quick to respond to any questions and quick to refund the deposit. Would definitely return to this cute property!!!

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

Property was perfect to meet our needs. The owners made several sweet gestures to make us feel welcomed. The rooms were beautifully decorated and beds were comfy! Our pups had plenty of space and the park next door was so convienent. We could easily uber downtown or to other local "hot spots". Neighborhood was quiet yet easily assessable. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review. We enjoyed meeting you and learning that you were part of the DaVita group who helped us during the flood of 2011. Small world. We thank you from the bottom of our heart for being kind during this difficult time. It really helped us. You were perfect guests and I can't wait for you to come back. Diane, David and grumpy Nookie
