Hey y'all! My name is Dani Dubetz and I created my short-term rental business in 2012.

Prior to moving to Nashville, I played volleyball for Florida International University and later worked as a news reporter for WPTV in West Palm Beach. I learned telling a sad story every day wasn't really 'my thing.'

I moved to Nashville, like many, in pursuit of a music career, working as a beverage cart girl at a golf club, waitressing and coaching volleyball. As humbling as it was to go from being on TV to paying my rent in $1 bills, I didn't regret my decision.

Unfortunately, I quickly realized that the talent in Music City was far beyond any I'd come across in South Florida and surely, more than I was capable of as a self-professed Karaoke Queen and front woman of my Florida cover band!

From 2009-2012 I bounced between jobs in search of my purpose, a career that would allow me to utilize my talents, gifts and creativity and make a positive impact. My mother was a successful 'house-flipper' in our small town, Lanexa, Virginia. She was gracious enough to teach me her business, in loving support to help me keep my head above water! I flipped one or two houses a year but was never quite successful enough where I didn't need a day job. In 2010 I went against my mother's advice and purchased a loft in downtown Nashville, intending to flip it.

In my 27 year old mind, sleeping on an air mattress in an empty loft, spending my free time listening to music in the bars just two blocks away was a pretty sweet gig. I was naive and ignorant to the fact that… it was 2010! Downtown properties were foreclosing faster than they were being purchased. My brilliant idea turned into my first failed flip. Between that and getting fired from a few jobs, my confidence was completely wrecked.

My mom helped me furnish the loft, thinking staging the property would help it sell. Meanwhile, an acquaintance mentioned she'd listed her house on a web site and was renting it out nightly. As all of my personal belongings were packed up to move back home, tail between my legs and head low in utter defeat and self-loathing, my mom convinced me to use the last available funds on my credit card to list the loft online and, 'You never know. Maybe if you get a reservation you can get by for a little longer until you find your next job?'

In hindsight, I realize I actually failed my way forward. As I still kept finding jobs that would call me back to Nashville, but less optimistic that any of them would stick, I practically lived out of my car. When my loft was rented, I slept on friends' couches. If my loft was rented and I was again unemployed, I would travel to real estate seminars to make the most of my time. Eventually I realized that the career I had been searching for — an opportunity to build and grow a brand — was being met by my loft.

I set to work finding a way to purchase more lofts in the building. I was passionate about creating the 'authentic Nashville experience' for my guests by providing a space that featured work from local artists and thereby, helping support my community.

This passion has grown into something far beyond what I ever dreamed for myself or imagined possible. I never wanted to be a boss, I just wanted a job and one that I loved! I now have an entire team that not only loves Nashville, but deeply cares about helping our guests get the most from their visit.

Our cleaning team is top-notch, as they understand all of the marketing we do on the front end means nothing if you walk in and aren't completely blown away! Our security team, Asset, are former military guys who not only provide comfort for our guests entering the building after a late night on the town but are extremely professional and courteous. We think it's awesome to have our guests looked after by 'Captain America!'

On the reservations side, we have rockstars who truly care about your upcoming visit whether it be for a vacation, reunion, bachelorette party or conference. We not only want to give you an amazing space to call home and help you experience Nashville like a local, but we want to give you customized recommendations and resources so you fall in love with our city and want to come back again and again!

Suzanne is the head boss of guest experiences. She has been with the company since the beginning and you truly will not find someone more passionate about Nashville and its music scene. You're in the best hands!

A little about how Suzanne and I came to work together, because I absolutely love telling this story — In 2012-2013 we were roommates. I was visiting with banks all day, trying to convince them that #TeamMCL was something to believe in (which at the time, had never before been seen at such scale in Nashville) and staying up all night answering e-mails and fulfilling reservations. Suzanne walked out of her home office (mine was the kitchen table) to tell me she was cut from her company in a corporate downsizing. Realizing I needed to not only get some sleep, but keep whatever little funds I had in-house so we could avoid eviction, I asked her if she wanted to work for #TeamMCL. Her classic response, which I will always remember, a very unenthusiastic, 'I guess I have to.'

It's so comical to remember that day because while she begrudgingly agreed then, she is a total rockstar now!

Suzanne has grown to not only be an irreplaceable teammate, to whom I am forever grateful to helping me make this business possible not only in operations, but in the emotional support that I needed when times were really hard and no bank would give me the time of day, my mother's passing and my first business partner's ALS diagnosis (Former Tennessee Titan, Tim Shaw. Check out his book 'Blitz Your Life' because it's GREAT!), but she is a true champion of #TeamMCL and the authentic Nashville experience we are trying to provide for our guests. She maintains the properties to a high standard of expectations and she delights in hearing our guests' stories, connecting with them and giving them personalized recommendations of shows and events. A recommendation from her is like getting the 'inside scoop' on up-and-coming artists, so you can feel like one of the 'cool kids' when you come to town and get to experience Nashville like a true local!

My vision for #TeamMCL is this:

We aim to create a world-wide brand of privately owned vacation rentals, starting with the Music City, USA. The industry of private home rentals is extremely variable and uncertain. I have traveled and stayed in homes all over and have asked these very same questions. I have collected my own terrible experiences where the property wasn't as advertised, wasn't clean or I didn't feel safe. I have also stayed in places that didn't feel authentic, but were stale and run-of-the-mill, where I may have just as well stayed in a box-store hotel chain! Overall, the property you stay in can significantly impact the quality of your trip, your emotions, adventure, experience and ultimately, your memories! Knowing this and what I've learned through my own experiences and from our guests since renting out my first loft in 2011 before establishing MCL as a company, I have a dream to bring a standard of comfort, quality and consistency into the vacation rental world, all while creating spaces that are 'authentic' to that city by supporting local artists and reflecting that city's unique culture and vibe.

More than being a successful company with a culture we can be proud of, we intend to be a force for good. We feel it's our mission to give back to our guests by delivering an exceptional experience where our guests feel genuinely cared for, but as a company we aim to do so much more to positively impact the world. We want our guests to know that while they are getting what they pay for and having an amazing experience worthy of a 5-Star review, a portion of their hard earned money is being paid forward toward a cause, whether it's ALS research, disadvantaged and orphaned children, or teen moms needing additional career education and encouragement.

Having faced personal struggle and the challenges of starting a company, coming through victoriously to other side, I truly believe that anything is possible!

Our core goals include:

* Setting the stage — Owning romantic real estate in romantic cities, all over the world

* WOWing our guests with cleanliness, quality and customer service — Creating a world-wide brand of vacation rentals that travelers can trust

* WOWing our guests by delighting five of their senses (Sight, Smell, Touch, Taste and Sound) through our properties and personalized recommendations of authentic, unique and local experiences

* Be WOW Memory Makers — WOW our guests so they can experience joy, delight and adventure, through our properties and recommendations so they can create memories they will cherish for a lifetime when they Stay {Somewhere} Awesome!

* Positively impact our Team, our guests and our community through passion, growth/learning and contribution

Thank you, in advance, for giving us the opportunity to meet our goals as a team. We are looking forward to serving you and earning your 5-Star Review. We live and die by them. If there's anything you need from us during your stay, please contact us so we have the opportunity to deliver! Also, word-of-mouth is essential for us to grow and thrive so if you loved staying at a #TeamMCL loft, please tell your friends!

With Sincerity and Deep Appreciation,

Loved this loft it was as beautiful as the pictures and a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This loft is located in a perfect location with an easy walk to Broadway. Convenient to a corner grocery store, liquor store, Starbucks, and Brothers Dunn. There is also a small bar located in the bottom of the building. Would certainly stay here again and Dani was very prompt to answer any questions.

sub-par experience

  • 1 of 5

If you like to keep up with current events by watching cable TV news in the morning or at night, or if you like to watch sports on ESPN or any other cable TV network while you are in your room, do not stay here. This is the first rental property or hotel I have ever stayed in that did not have cable TV service. The year is 2018, so this was shocking, to say the least. They told me in an email that instead of watching TV I should get out into the city and see Nashville. On top of that, the toilets have a flow problem and the entire sewage system downtown makes the building smell. Nashville is growing so fast, the sewage system in the downtown area gets backed up, and this building is right in the heart of it. It is billed as a 2-bedroom, but it is a loft. The upstairs "bedroom" is blocked off with a large piece of cardboard. This does give you visual privacy, but certainly not even a small amount of audible privacy, so consider this if you are traveling with another couple.

Owner's Response: The guest contacted us with regards to not having cable and wanting to 'update the cable package'. He stated in his email, "It never occurred to me that I should check the amenities". (Each vacation rental varies on what's provided and therefore we strongly urge all guests to review listings in full detail including the amenities section. Everything we provide can be found within all of our listings for review prior to making a reservation. We want everyone to have a BLAST in Nashville and it's very important for guests to pick the property that's best for them!) As anyone who has worked with a cable provider knows, a cable package is not something that can be immediately 'updated'. The building does not offer cable as part of the HOA at this time. Being we have 16 lofts in the building that would require 16 separate cable contracts. While we are moving towards offering cable, we just aren't there, yet. We advised the guest that there was a lounge in the basement with couches and tv's where he could watch CNN and ESPN. He seemed dissatisfied with this solution. We encourage guests to get out and go to one of the countless bars that offer every game you could want, make new friends and memories to get the most out of your Nashville experience! With regards to sewage, we do NOT have an issue with sewage in our building and this is the first we are hearing of it... The upstairs loft area does not have cardboard in it. It's an upstairs loft so yes it is open. We have a curtain to pull closed to give what privacy the space allows. This guest failed to mention that they DEMANDED a late check out the night before check out. We advised him that all late check outs must be done in advance as indicated on our rental agreement. This advance notice is required in order to properly schedule the cleaning staff and ensure the digital door lock code is created for the correct time prior to arrival. The guests stayed in the property 3 HOURS after the check out time AFTER we told him it wasn't available. Our security team almost had to be called to have them removed from the property. They also left 2 garbage bags full of garbage for us to collect and dishes all over the loft for us to clean up for him. As indicated in our rental agreement this kind of behavior allows us to keep the $400 damage deposit so that is what needed to happen for this guest not following our house rules. A minimal level of participation is required from our guests, as with many vacation rentals.

Great location but needs some TLC

  • 3 of 5

The location is fantastic and the loft would be amazing if not for the need of some pretty basic maintenance. Repair is needed to the towel rack, door stop, and ceiling tiles. The couch has seen better days. A little sprucing up and it would be perfect.

Beds are very comfy and loft is clean. Kitchen is nicely stocked with pots, pans, dishes, glasses etc. Bring spices if you plan to cook. Coffee pot is a Kuerig.

The bar downstairs is awesome. Great music and friendly, attentive staff. It was nice having somewhere so convenient to start and end our days.

Rental staff was very easy to work with and efficient.
