About the property

Five sleeping areas, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)


This house was chosen by ABC's Sweet Retreat television series as one of the best three vacation rentals in Memphis. You can see the intersection of Beale and S. Main from your front door. No dark side streets here!

This house is on South Main in the South Main Arts District--THE most desirable address downtown! Only step out the door for the trolley, or walk the two well lighted blocks to Beale!

Absolutely THE best address in downtown Memphis. Have private enclosed two car garage that you enter through a GATED area. There are three GATED New Orleans style patios facing South Main for your private enjoyment of the streets. Very secure....yet in the middle of everything.


This house 1/2 mile from new BASS PRO SHOP! RIDE TROLLEY!


Regular rates listed (below) are for a 3 night minimum with SIX (6) occupants. Rates vary according to number of occupants and number of nights rented. Please scroll down to "notes" under "Rental Rates" to determine potential rate .Contact owner for YOUR rate. ALSO I DO NOT ADVERTISE ON CRAIG'S LIST--only on VRBO. I also own VRBO 279405 and VRBO 566632 which are side by side.

You do not have to walk blocks to catch a trolley or get to BEALE Street, Orpheum theater, or FEDEX ARENA! Only step out the front door, wave to the trolley driver and you will be picked up right there! This house is 15 steps from the trolley and two short well lighted blocks to Beale! You will NOT need your car. Park in my private, two car garage that you enter through a SECURITY GATE...... and catch the trolley or walk! .

Remember the trolley stops at 12 a.m.! Stay where you can WALK back ON WELL LIGHTED SOUTH MAIN!!!

About Dr. Linda Heard

I am a professional writer that greatly enjoys the privacy my townhouse provides---while being in the center of the entertainment district. As a single professional woman, I work long hours in solitude and its terrific walking out my front door, catching the trolley in a dozen steps, and riding all over downtown, or simply walking two blocks to Beale Street and listening to great music with friends! Memphis is the BEST! And, my street is the BEST location in downtown Memphis. Great people, great restaurants........

Dr. Linda Heard purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Dr. Linda Heard chose Downtown

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, South Main Arts District. Totally private yet in the middle of EVERYTHING you'd come to Memphis for.

What makes this townhome unique

Can work hard, sleep late, be left alone.......OR can walk out the door and PARTY! Best neighbors ANYWHERE!

A beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

This home is very well maintained and the decorating adds to the fun of staying in the beautiful city of Memphis. The town home is located in the heart of Memphis and is an easy walk or trolley ride to many of the attractions in the City. We enjoyed the comfortable ambiance of the home and the lovely furnishings. A great place to start the day and relax after touring. We would definitely stay here again and will tell any friends headed to Memphis that this is the place to stay.

Great location - perfect for a boys weekend.

  • 5 of 5

The Tru Playez basketball league had our annual "meeting" and used this property as our home base. It could not have been better. Everything is walkable - don't miss the civil rights museum. Get breakfast daily at the bedrock and your drinking home base can be green beetle. City is friendly and you're right in the middle of it. Thanks, Linda!
