About Dr. Linda Heard

I am a professional writer that has enjoyed my wonderful Memphis home in the South Main historic arts district of downtown beyond description! Perfect location for a single female looking for a safe environment to work and play.

Dr. Linda Heard purchased this house in 2005

Why Dr. Linda Heard chose Downtown

I originally bought this property as a single professional woman that works long hours as a professional writer-- and wanted a place that brought me privacy---but allowed great opportunity to meet people and for entertainment. I have been able to sit and write for long hours.......and then walk out of my house on to South Main that is just alive with excitement. My heart always beats faster when I walk South Main toward Beale St. I LOVE DOWNTOWN MEMPHIS--YOU WILL TOO!

What makes this house unique

WALK TO FEDEX FORUM two blocks, Orpheum Theater two blocks........BEALE Street is two blocks...WALK TO ALL EVENTS!!! You can actually SEE the Orpheum, Beale St., and FedEX from different vantage points in my townhouse. Frank’s Deli is located a few short steps across the street, and will deliver food and liquor to your door. The Green Beatle Sports Bar and Restaurant is located adjacent to Frank’s Deli across the street and will also deliver food and liquor to your door. The Rumba Room, VERY popular party place, is located across the street adjacent to the Green Beatle. They give FREE dance lessons to prepare you for the night! Hollywood Disco, THE premiere party place in Memphis is located right behind my house. You can walk to it from my gated back entrance. The owner owns a house adjoining mine. So, you’ll have automatic entry into the VIP room. Two short blocks from the world famous Orpheum Theater where major Broadway plays are always scheduled. The FedEx Arena for sports events, including the Memphis Grizzlies, and major musical events featuring world famous musicians. S. Main Gallery Walk last Friday of every month, where art galleries stay open late, FREE trolley rides all over downtown, and just general downtown party atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Amazing!!!!!! Glenda Broadnax-McCoy Atlanta

Review Submitted June 11, 2012 Date of Stay June 7, 2012 Our group booked both units. Prior to booking each unit, Linda was very helpful with any questions or concerns I had. I sent her 500 emails and she answered each one with a joyful and helpful attitude. That put me at ease for such an expenditure. We were arriving from all over the country and I was nervous. Linda put me at ease and helped make the booking easy-breezy. We rented both condos for our mini-vacation and was not disappointed. Each unit is more than the pictures could possibly display. Each unit had personal and welcoming touches that made you feel at home. The colors were wonderful, the furnishings gorgeous and the ambiance was inviting. Everything you could ever need was available or had already been anticipated. We were met by Karen (Manager) who walked us through each property and made herself available if we needed anything or had any questions. She even checked up on us to see if we needed anything.... Wonderful. The units were well maintained, clean and beyond all things ....ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL. Beale Street is only 2 blocks away, but the units are so nice we ended up spending more time there than on Beale Street. Also, the units are located in an area that is thriving with art and wonderful stores. The Green Beetle across the street was wonderful. Everyone was very friendly and a wealth of information. We took a stroll down Main St and found wonderful restaurants and stores (opposite direction of Beale St.). The Trolley runs right in front of the unit and you can easily travel anywhere downtown. When we come back to Memphis, we will book these units again. No one (out of 11 people) was disappointed and THAT'S saying a lot for 11 picky people. Actually, no one wanted to leave ...LOL... we are trying to figure out how to convince Linda to sell us this unit.... Oh Wait ... can NOT leave without saying something about the 'Man Cave'. Even the women loved it ... and THAT'S SAYING SOMETHING. Thank you Linda for these units. You made our stay unique and wonderful. Rating:

In the heart of the entertainment district. Restaurants and sports bar across street will deliver food..3,000 sq foot immaculate home on four levels each with balcony/patio for street view. Have manager that lives in the neighborhood that will greet you with keys, codes, and the house tour. She is available to you 24/7 during your visit. This is the arts district with art galleries stretching all down S. Main. The Orpheum Theater, FED EX Arena, and Beale Street may be viewed from my house as they are all within 2 blocks. The trolley line is 15 steps from my front door to ride all over downtown for $1.00. No walking blocks in the dark or heat to catch the trolley!!!!!! Just step out the front door!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful place to stay! This property exceeded all of our expectations. The accommodations were perfect for our needs. It was comfortable and very roomy. Loved the décor and Memphis feel about the house. The owner, Linda and the Property Manager, Lori were great to work with and available if anything was needed. Location was great. Close walking distance to Beale Street and other downtown attractions/restaurants. Always enjoy the Green Beetle, Gus’s Fried Chicken, and Pearl's Oyster House when we visit. We have been to Memphis several times and this by far is our favorite place to stay. We look forward to coming back.

We had a wonderful time staying at this property. Everywhere one needs to be downtown was within walking disdance. From tea at the Peabody to a Broadway show at the Orpheum, the house was a perfect location. Thank you for allowing us to stay. Hope to rent from you in the future.

What a wonderful place for 6 people! This home is in a perfect spot, easily walkable to any place downtown! My girlfriends and I felt very safe all weekend and loved that there was off street parking for our cars. We also enjoyed the places to eat and drink right across the street, as well Beale Street being a few blocks away. The home owner and her staff were excellent with any question we had. This place will be my go to for any upcoming Memphis stays.

Can't say enough about this gem in Memphis!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed just after Christmas for the Liberty Bowl, 6 adults. Literally, this is within walking distance of the National Civil Rights Museum, Central BBQ, and even Beale Street! Loved the convenience of the 2 car garage that was gated. If ever in the area again, I wouldn't hesitate to book with Linda. Lori, the manager, was fantastic! Thank you both so much for the wonderful stay!!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My high school girlfriends and I spent 3 nights here and had a wonderful time. The place was immaculate. We loved the way this home was centered around Memphis attractions. Lorie was there to greet us and gave some helpful tips.

We highly recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind review. Yes, I have amazing cleaning staff that have been with me for 10 years now! And, although Lori is new, she is getting great reviews for her service as a manager. I"m glad you loved the location. I do too! This was my private home and it is special among my three (side by side). It is absolutely the best location downtown! Please choose my house for your next visit. Lori said you left the house great! So appreciate!
