About the Property

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath. Sleeps 5. Condo Right on the Main Street Mall

Enjoy a luxurious, eclectically-furnished condo located in the heart of downtown, on the safest and prettiest stretch of Memphis: the pedestrian Main Street Mall. Ideal for those looking to take full advantage of a vibrant downtown right outside the front door.

NOTE 1: Before making a reservation request, PLEASE inquire first (click "send email") so that we have a chance to correspond. It's most helpful if, upfront, you tell me a bit about yourself, the other guests, and your trip. It also helps if you have your profile filled out. All this makes it much more comforting for hosts before renting our homes out. Thank you!

NOTE 2: Weekend reservations require a 3-night minimum, unless there are only 2 weekend nights available between other bookings or it's a last-minute booking. Also, unless you're wanting to book 5 or more nights or only weekday nights, I usually don't book reservations more than 4-5 months in advance.

ABOUT THE CONDO:
Nicknamed "My Memphis Mojo," the condo is situated within easy walking distance to all the Memphis hot spots: Beale Street is a short (and very safe) 3-block walk along the Main Street Mall, which is lined with restaurants, shops, and bars; the historic Orpheum Theatre and the Mississippi River are 3 blocks away; Fedex Forum as well as many museums are nearby; and the Peabody Hotel and Autozone Park are just one block away.

My Memphis Mojo was even featured as one of the three Best of Memphis vacation home rentals on the former national TV show Sweet Retreats on the Live Well Network. I take great pride in hosting and providing my guests with a special place to call home during their visit to Memphis.

Eclectically-decorated with a Latin and southern charm, the 2-story, 2-bedroom, 1.5-bath condo boasts a warm homey vibe. While you enjoy your complimentary bottle of wine in the living room, watch horse-drawn carriages cruise and passersby stroll along the pedestrian-only Main Street Mall, which is just outside the condo's floor-to-ceiling windows. The condo's street-level front-door entrance opens directly onto downtown's beautiful Main Street Mall.

As many guests tell me, they are pleasantly surprised to find out that the condo is bigger and better than they expected. I guess my photos don't do my place justice.

The master bedroom is located on the main floor with a comfortable queen-size bed and two spacious closets. The full bathroom boasts a huge walk-in shower and oversize tub, which is uniquely located inside the shower.

A stairwell from the main living room leads guests into a spacious downstairs suite that features its own private living room, which altogether takes up the entirety of the bottom floor. Downstairs is furnished with comfortable full and twin size beds as well as a chaise lounge couch, love seat and reading chair; among other furnishings. In addition to the full bathroom, guests also have access to a half bathroom.

The condo includes fresh towels, bath robes, and linens as well as shower gel and shampoo. A hairdryer and iron are also available for guests.

The condo features a fully-equipped modern kitchen with a marble-top bar overlooking the living room and the Main Street Mall. The living room includes a large-screen smart TV with cable.

The condo's back-door entrance connects directly to a secure public parking garage. For my guests, I provide a free parking pass to this garage, which provides you with one reserved parking space with unlimited in-and-out privileges and overnight security access. The reserved parking spot is just steps to my condo's back door.

The condo is ideal for two couples, a family of 5 or less, or a group of friends.

Most of the time, I will be checking you in personally upon your arrival to show you around the condo and to make sure you have everything you need. I will also make local recommendations for places to eat and drink, especially the cooler spots favored by locals. Throughout your stay, I will be available via cell to answer any questions that you may have.

I'm flexible on bookings and will do my best to work with you to accommodate your needs.

NOTE: Those who pay by e-check will get a surprise gift upon check-in.
NOTE: Higher rates may apply for special events and holidays.

*Important note: the rental is for registered guests ONLY. Hosting any events or house parties/get-togethers are strictly prohibited. Note that this is not a generic property rental. It was my home that has now been set up for guests but is still furnished with sentimental and irreplaceable objects, furniture and collectibles of mine, which is also what makes my condo a very special and homey place, as many guests have commented. Please respect my home, and it will provide you with a most enjoyable stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I’ve made it my mission to be a great host to those of you visiting Memphis and staying at My Memphis Mojo. This condo has been a therapeutic, and ongoing, work of art for me. So I get a warm and fuzzy feeling when my guests appreciate the place's eclectic yet homey vibe. I also get a kick out of greeting my guests personally upon check-in and recommending my favorite local spots in town. All this seems to make their stay a bit more special. I've met some really great people—and friends—through hosting; and I certainly look forward to meeting more. With all this positive energy, I’ve since managed to get my filmmaker chops going. My short dance film Bookin’ mixes a Memphis street dance called Jookin’ with ballet to a soundtrack that mixes hip-hop beats and cello…all at a famous juke joint in downtown Memphis. It’s been a hit on the festival circuit in both the US and Europe as it spreads the good vibes of cultural fusion, which Memphis is historically known for. Throughout, I’ve also been developing a downtown community arts center for my fellow emerging artists, right here in my funky home town of Memphis. I have a special love for this city. And I now have a love for hosting guests at My Memphis Mojo, which I’ve stamped with my own sort of funky vibe. As you’ll see, it’s decorated with a mix of Southern and Latin charm—just like me!—I may have been born a Memphian, but my blood is half Colombian. Gracias, mamá. So please come on down to Memphis. I’d love to meet you.

Why the Owner Chose Downtown, Memphis, TN, USA:
Downtown Memphis is becoming quite dynamic. I wanted to be in the center of that energy. Plus, the art center that I'm developing is just two blocks away. My heart and soul has been devoted both to that project as well as to Memphis. Thus my downtown condo has created a perfect home for me and my guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The floor-to-ceiling windows offer guests full views of the Main Street Mall. The condo's central downtown location provides an ideal location for Memphis visitors, putting them right in the heart of the action. A lot of love has been put into this home, giving guests a warm, homey and stylish environment.
