Frequently Asked Questions

1.Are parties and large gatherings permitted? No, this is a quiet neighborhood where the homes are close together. Loud music and voices outside on porches and patio carry and may disturb neighbors. If you are asked to leave, Refunds will not be given.

2. What is the sleeping situation? Sleeps up to 6 people king bed in master suite, a double bed in second bedroom suite (both are upstairs) and a Queen pull out platform bed in the 3rd bedroom downstairs. The sofa in the LR is also very comfy. Each bedroom has an attached full bath (3 full baths).
3. What is the best way to get downtown - cab, walk or drive? Our guests have done all three. Some guests have walked the entire way to the downtown action. Some have parked their cars at the base of the bridge and walked over the bridge to take the trolley. The bridge is only 2/10 of a mile long. Others drive and park downtown at the many garages, meters, lots or free parking. Your drive to the action would be about 2-3 minutes were it not for the traffic lights.
4. Are cabs hard to get? Cabs are readily available, just look in the phone book or on the net and call them up. You can also catch them in front of the hotels on your way back.
5.May I have an address so I can map it? So sorry, we cannot give out the address until the house is booked, but you can use this address to get a general idea of directions and distance:
113 Harbor Town Sq.
Memphis, TN 38103
Once your payments clear, you will receive the address, directions and entry instructions.
6. Do you rent by the night? Yes, but a one night will cost $500.00
7. How far away are you from Graceland? Total distance: 10.2 miles.

8. When is check in and checkout time? Check in is at 4:00 PM and checkout is at 10:00 AM. We ask that all guests please stick to the 10:00 AM checkout time. The housekeeper needs much more time to clean an entire house between guests. PLEASE DO NOT CHECK IN EARLY WITHOUT CHECKING WITH THE AGENT.
9. Are linens available? Yes, the house is equipped with linen, towels, spices, start up paper products (to purchase more supplies, there is a grocery store in the community or off the island. You will want to bring your personal grooming products.
