Why the Owner Chose Midtown, Memphis, TN, USA:
We have been renting the house on a long term basis. However, when it last came available, we decided to do something different. We have done some private meals here and decided it would be perfect for people who wanted a unique place similar to home to stay for a weekend or a month.
