About the property

Minutes from Downtown in a quiet neighborhood with great shops & restaurants

We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do. It is a 1929 Craftsman Bungalow with hardwood floors throughout the downstairs and cool architectural details like archways in the dining room and built-ins in many rooms for plenty of storage. The downstairs is 1400 square feet and has two bedrooms and two bathrooms (the second bathroom has a bathtub only, no shower). The upstairs in-law suite is 400 square feet, has its own bathroom with shower, a kitchen, and full-sized bed. It is a converted attic with typical slanted walls so it is cozy. The upstairs is accessed from an outside staircase only. There is no inside access to the upstairs, allowing for additional privacy.

In addition to the two bedrooms, the downstairs has a comfortable living room, dining room, kitchen, and family/tv room. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need, including a gas stove and dishwasher. There is cable tv, wifi, and washer and dryer for your use. The house has central heat and air. There is also a couch that converts to a double bed in the family room that can provide additional sleeping space. The living room has games and books for your enjoyment. There are also tennis rackets and balls and a tennis court just three blocks from the house at the entrance to Shelby Park.

These are some reviews from our duplex that is right next door to this property. I copied and pasted only what was said about the neighborhood and/or our hosting style, as this would be the same for our house. Please let me know if you might be interested in renting the duplex as well.

"It's located in safe and unique East Nashville and is close to the stadium and downtown activities. The owner is prompt and professional and goes above expectations to make your stay wonderful." Susie C Jan 2017

" location so convenient! Her home was so close to everywhere we wanted to explore in Nashville. We rented a car, and most places only took 10 minutes to drive to. The park at the end of the street also made for great walks. Although we did not meet Christy in person, she was very responsive to any questions we had. We had a wonderful first time visit to Nashville!" E.S. Nov 2016

"It was a short and inexpensive uber/lyft ride in and out of music row/downtown. We loved coming "home" to a quiet neighborhood after a busy day in downtown. We only explored this neighborhood a little, wished we had more time. We enjoyed breakfast, lunch, and the local creamery, all less than a mile away." Karen S Oct 2016

" location. 2 miles straight shot into downtown or $6 Uber rides. Never waited more than 3 minutes for a car. Owner is friendly and available to answer any questions. Highly recommend wandering around east nashville and the 5 points area. 2 for 1 beers at all the bars on sundays." Peter E. Sept 2016

"She was so accommodating and helpful. One of the things we were most impressed with was the neighborhood. Absolutely loved it!! We will definitely make this our first choice the next time we visit Nashville." B&B Sept 2016

"Perfect location! Short uber ride to downtown Nashville and walking distance to five points for our east Nashville food tour. Christy was available to answer any questions and was easy to communicate with."

"Loved this location in a east Nashville! Neighborhood was super cute with lots of great restaurants within walking distance. In one direction, you were only a short drive (or 30 min walk) into downtown, and in another there was a beautiful park. Christy was an amazing host!" Kharli T April 2016

" a nice neighborhood with wide streets & sidewalks, but close to everything that Nashville has to offer. There were several restaurants & coffeeshops (try the Post!) within an easy walk & a great park is just a few blocks away. The road goes straight into downtown, so you can go exploring without getting on the highway. Best tip was to park (for free) on the east side of the pedestrian bridge and walk over it into downtown. You could walk the whole way (less than 2 miles), but I was to lazy for that. Christy was a great hostess,..." Tammy W March 2016

Guestbook comments from the owner

Christy's home is about 5 mins from downtown where everything is going on. Her home is very welcoming and comfortable. She has everything you need and other essentials you might forget on your trip like hair dryer, etc. I would recommend this to other travelers going to Nashville!

Christy is a wonderful hostess. She was very responsive and helpful and it made the 7 week rental so much more pleasant. There is plenty of closet and drawer space. The bathroom is roomy and clean and functional. The kitchen was workable, and there was a gas stove/oven which is great. The pull out sofa in the family room is VERY comfortable. East Nashville is a great location, near some hip, funky cafes and restaurants and shops. It's a less-than-10 minute Uber ride to downtown, and just a few minutes more to The Gulch. There has been a lot of rain in Nashville recently, and she may need to keep her eye on problems with moisture moving forward. I would certainly call Christy if I need to return to Nashville again.

Great location, great find, great house!

  • 5 of 5

Christy's house is just great all around. It is so conveniently located to get downtown or to East Nashville (where there are restaurants, bars, ice cream, art, etc.) and we loved sitting on the front porch in the morning watching all the people go by. It is also a short walk to the park where there is a greenway, nature center and pond.

There was plenty of room for 3 adults and a toddler to live comfortably for a long weekend. Having a fully stocked kitchen is a great bonus. The beds and seating areas were all comfortable and we felt right at home.

I have stayed in Christy's other properties and this one is as well loved and cared for as the others. She is an awesome host with a great attention to detail and care for her visitors. I look forward to staying here again!!

Perfect location to fall in love with Nashville. Comfortable, clean and fun.

  • 5 of 5

Christy's place was great for us - a quick ride to Vanderbilt University and walking distance to 5 Points for tons of great restaurants and unique shops. Christy's place has the most comfortable beds we ever slept on. We also liked the dependable internet, nice appliances and well stocked kitchen. The family room was the perfect place to kick back and relax. I was also able to get away from the kids and read in the living room. Christy's house is awesome, and we will definitely be back.

Fantastic location! Clean, comfortable and fun. THE place to fall in love with Nashville.

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I came to Nashville to see Vanderbilt University. Christy's place was in the perfect location...a quick ride to Vanderbilt, walking distance to 5 Points, with tons of restaurants and unique shops, and Shelby Bottoms for a beautiful walk. The house is awesome, with the most comfortable beds we ever slept on, dependable internet, very nice appliances and a well stocked kitchen. Christy also left a giant album filled with information about Nashville, local restaurants, transportation, family adventures, music and night life. Although my daughter didn't choose Vanderbilt, we will definitely be back for everything Nashville has to offer.
