Fully furnished duplex apartment on dead end street, exit 98 on I-65 and the place is only 1 mile down! (About 13 miles to the North of downtown Nashville). Pets ok with pre-approval, and addt'l fee of approx. $10 per night per pet. This amount goes (in full) to a local special needs animal rescue. The pet fee depends on more information regarding the pet, so please forward breed, age, weight, etc. Pets must be crated while you are away from the apartment, or we can board at the shelter we sponsor, and sometimes we dogsit for our guest. Crates can be rented from the shelter we support for about $5. This apartment features a full size kitchen with utensils , a refrigerator, stove, dw, and washer/dryer. It has 2 sofa's in the LR that make 2 twin size beds. It has a separate bedroom with a Queen bed that has a new memory foam mattress that is "unbelievably comfy", and another separate bedroom with a twin bed and recliner. It has a fenced rear yard for pets to play, and a convenience store you can walk to in 1 Minute. A library, community center, police station, Subway, Dollar General, Waffle House all about 3 minutes away. It is about 5 minutes (one exit, 2 miles) from all kinds of food sources, banks, post office, shopping, and the antique stores that Goodlettsville is known for. Downtown Nashville honkey tonks and football games etc are about a 15-20 minute drive time away ($22 approx with Lyft), and we are Lyft partners, so when you stay if you use our special code you receive upon check in, you get ride discounts! Airport is less than 30 minutes. Oprymills, Grande Ole Opry etc only about 15-20 minutes. If you want POSH, this is not it, but if you want a quiet, clean, decent place to hang out....THIS IS IT! Owner on site. Smoking allowed outside only, 3 areas for such. When you leave you will be responsible for broom clean condition. Available for booking 1-89 days. Weekly discounts available! Driveway has space for 2 cars side by side. Part of our proceeds go to a local animal shelter for support. WE are very animal friendly. Note: The back yard is private, privacy fenced, no other houses close, and level with grass and a big shade tree. We allow pets inside of course, but we do ask that you clean up after your pet, (inside an outside) you will be responsible for any and all damages, and if you are doing the tourist things and will be gone, we can suggest the following choices: Ask if we can go over and let your pup out for bathroom breaks, or, possibly we can babysit them at the shelter while you "paint the town", and we require that you crate them while you are away. Sometimes even the best dog baby in the world will get separation anxiety when in a new place, new smells, and mom and dad missing, and this place does not smell like you , so the abandonment fear can take hold. You are responsible for any damages, and we don't want your pup in stress, so make sure you arrange something with us prior to you leaving for the entire day etc. We love animals, we do animals every day! The shelter is only about 8 minutes from the apartment, and we both volunteer there, so we can run home and check on your pup. We do suggest addt'l donations to the shelter for babysitting your pup. All the pups at the rescue LOVE treats! So treats are always something we like for you to donate. Big Dog Heaven Animal Care says "Thanks for staying in our place!" This unit is only rented to travelers and is not occupied daily. Sometimes it is closed up for several days with only a fan on and it was built in the 50's.. It is clean, it does have brand new vinyl (pet friendly) flooring which has a new smell. We also have a dehumidifier in the unit, to insure our guest have every option of a great stay. IF you get here and you are not happy, immediately let us know, and we will correct any issue you think you may have if at all possible. IF you stay several days, check out,and act as though everything is great, then leave a bad review, well, that's just not the appropriate action. Like I said it is not POSH, not for this price, but it is clean, and "like going to grandma's"...…. But is you notice, we have many great reviews!! And we will continue to have them! Some of our former guest have become friends, and we still communicate, some still donate to the animal rescue, and some have even visited the rescue and handed out treats! One couple, even adopted while here.
House, 2 seperate Bedrooms + Bedroom #3 Is in Living Room, 1 Bath (sleeps 5)

About Sharon Holt
Hi! My name is Sharon. I am a retired realtor, native Nashvillian, mother of 2 humans and about 40 animals. Now I operate an animal orphanage that handles special needs animals of multiple species called Big Dog Heaven Animal Care. We also rescue and find forever homes for stray pups on death row at county shelters. A portion of our rental proceeds are forwarded to help support the animal rescue shelter. Big Dog Heaven Animal Care has been my dream for my entire life, and now with the help of travelers like you, we are IN BUSINESS! Thanks so much for your interest in booking with us!
Why Sharon Holt chose Goodlettsville
All the necessities of home. Clean, decent place to stay with comfy beds, sheets and towels, pots and pans, washer and dryer, stove refrigerator microwave and coffee pot provided, on a dead end street, a grocery store within walking distance and still only 15-20 minutes from almost anything you can think of in the Nashville Tn area! NO SMOKING INSIDE THE UNIT! We have places set up for outside smoking. We support a 501(c)3 animal rescue charity. And, it's pretty darn private here. Animal and 420 friendly.
What makes this House unique
Easy off/on entry to I-65. Food store and gas at the corner. Very low traffic dead end street. Only 5 homes on the street, we are located at the end area of the street. Very private. Library just .5 mile down on left with small park across street.
Check-in: 2:00 PM
Check-out: 10:00 AM
100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
Caution! Don't stay here.
This house is not safe to be in. We checked out after a few hours. One smoke alarm, that doesn't work. Cans of paint stored in closet and kitchen cabinets. Water leaks from outside into kitchen cabinets. Black mold in kitchen cabinets. Used razor, wiskers, dirt and rust in medicine cabinet. Piles off dirt and pet hair behind furniture and appliances. Everything is filthy dirty. I wiped up a wet spot on the floor and the paper towel turned black. Fenced back yard is very small, has long grass and weeds, tree limbs and outside furniture is four plastic chairs covered with mold. NO cable or satellite tv as promised. An antenna wire is run from tv up over a picture on the wall and gets a couple channels. Roku connected to tv but gets free content only, no subscription included. Toilet is loose an rocks. Refrigerator has drain pan to catch water that runs out of freezer. I was told that when if I left the house during my stay I was required to put the key in the lock box so the owner could get in??? Don't book a stay at this place, even if it's the last place available in TN. After showing the owner all the problems with her house, she still should give us a full refund. She kept $255. VRBO was was very nice and paid for a hotel room for our entire stay.
First anyone with any experience renting thru the Home Away/VRBO site KNOWS that the homeowners DO NOT HANDLE THE MONEY! So, in essence, that alone shows you are uneducated on how this is done, and also a liar. I did NOT charge or keep the $255 you mention. Your remarks are unfounded and not true, you say you stayed "a few hours"...you stayed overnight! Your host, Gloria was onsite and met you @ your arrival, she went inside the apt with you and ask you if all was ok, showed you how to access the TV! You had ample opportunity IF you actually saw any issues to address them at that point. My other reviews are 5 stars and happy guest. If your concerns were TRUE regarding any REAL issues you had (when we were showing you how to use the TV) when you" first arrived", you should have stated them then. You SPENT THE NIGHT, SHOWERED AND EVEN COOKED while there, did not even take out your own trash(to the can located just outside the entry door) when you left. You also had a dog that you did NOT pay a fee for...all you seem to have really wanted is a FREE STAY. You harassed me for days after you checked out, regarding your refund, even though I explained" in full extent "that I do not handle the funding, you are misleading in your comments on this review to the point of a possible civil suit being enacted by me regarding this matter for loss of business. And the real point is.....the TV programs available would not offer you a pay per view sports channel you just had to have, Right? The guest prior to you had removed the battery from the fire alarm as she was cooking a large thanksgiving dinner for her and her family who very much enjoyed their stay with us, and forgot to put the battery back inside. That, is really all you have correct on this property, and YES it has a battery again now. I am copying the communication I sent you for the world to see..." I cant do anything about their fees Randy. You should know that. It is an issue you need to take up with them. I have agreed to accept the one night charge, the cleaning fee, the taxation, has to be legally collected, NOTE: the site fees are 100% controlled by the site and they do not refund commissions. My charges are accurate. You owe me a total of $144.36 which includes the one night fee, reset/cleaning fee, the hotel occupancy, city, county, state & federal taxes. I was also kind & early released a $200 damage deposit back to you early. The remaining you need to speak to them about, I have NO power on the $.
Incredible pet friendly.
Incredible pet friendly. Very nice owners. Cozy. Close to downtown Nashville and near about anything you might want to do.
Regina, We totally enjoyed having your pups....and you HAHA : ) Hope to see you again! Have a great holiday season!
This was a perfect place to stay,, not to far from Nashville and right off the highway.. But, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle!! Gloria and Sharon were awesome and did everything to make sure our stay was comfortable and had everything we need!! ☺
Happy that you were happy. We enjoyed having you! Have great holidays!
Rental was clean, bed comfortable, plenty of hot water n area quiet. Gloria was great to work w n we were glad we could help the animal shelter. Would stay again. would have enough beds for a family or small group
Great review, thanks so much! Good to have good people stay with us. You are welcome back anytime.
Clean and comfortable
This is the perfect place if you're traveling with pets! The fact that the house isn't all shiny and new is a benefit then -- you're not on edge about what the dogs might chew or get fur on. The bed is comfy, the area is quiet, and the hosts are really friendly!
Stephanie, Thanks so much for your great review. We strive to keep everyone happy. We really did enjoy you staying with us and hope you have a great holiday season.
Great stay - especially with dogs! Clean and comfortable! Attentive host!
What a great find! A clean and clean comfortable place that accepts (enjoys) dogs! We had a great weekend in Nashville and it was worth the short drive to have a dog-friendly accomodations. The house was clean and it was easy to find off the interstate. Thank you very much!
Really enjoyed meeting you and having you stay as well ! Thanks for the review, and all the special needs animals at Big Dog Heaven Animal Care Rescue also thank you and your family for helping us help them.....Hope to see you again.
Goodlettsville is know for it's antique shopping experiences. Multiple stores filled with history! Reminds you of Mayberry.
Additional information about rental rates
Please do not use more beds than the number of persons booked. If you do, there will be an additional charge upon check out for $20 which covers the laundry and maid service fees for the additional bed change. Pet fees are on a PER NIGHT charge and may be paid as an additional adult when booking. Fees may be adjusted depending on the pet, number of pets, size of pet, age of pet, or temperament of pet. Best if you speak with me PRIOR so we can be precise on handling the pet charges, and establish a fair charge for such individual pet per rental. Also we add an additional $25 for cleaning after the pets visit for a total cleaning charge of $65 when you stay with pets. YOU are responsible for all damages. IF you travel with pets, we ask to be present when you check out to do a final walkthrough to check for damages, TOGETHER. WE do not give refunds. IF you check out alone, and we enter to clean and find damages, we will ask you to return to file a damage claim. If you do not return, we will file, give no refund of your payments/security deposit, and/or may continue and file civilly if necessary for recovery. If you check in you have 1 hour to notify us of any issue you think you may have or see. After 1 hour of possession of the unit, NO REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN. We will consider full acceptance of these terms and conditions 1 hour after your arrival. IF you have a problem you may simply knock on the front door of the attached apartment next door, Gloria will be happy to assist you.
