Perfect choice.

  • 5 of 5

Catherine made my stay memorable between the beautiful house and the garden it was a perfect choice. Our bedrooms were immaculate and all we could need was there for us.

Not only she gave us advice where to go but even gave me bugs spray as we were going to an outside concert!

The internet works perfectly, her street is very quiet, the beds very comfortable and cozy!!

We can also walk to German town from her house and have the choice of few nice informal or more formal places to have a bite.

She is a wonderful hostess and all was so perfect, I do recommend her house to everyone that need a place to stay In Nashville, just one word, loved it as much as my friends did, Bravo Catherine!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is my third visit to Cathrine's. I can't say enough about the hospitality shown to me during my stay. The grounds are very nice, and the house is clean and welcoming. Cathrine's breakfast selections are delicious and plentiful. Close to the Broadway strip, and many restaurant choices near by. I would recommend a visit to this beautiful home in Nashville to everyone.

We travel a lot as a family and always book homes through various sites online. My husband always tries to reserve really wonderful accommodations. We paid a lot of rent and a ridiculously high damage deposit for this home, but were met with disappointment. Firstly, the owner waited until the last minute to inform us of some important information. 1) she has a tenant who occupies part of the home; 2) the fountain was not clean; and 3) the gate to the driveway was broken. Not wanting to spoil our vacation,and being adaptable travelers, we told her not to worry. When we arrived we found much more than these things that were wrong. The garden was in disarray with the furniture turned over and soaking wet and a tree was laying down. The fountain water was not just green but very dirty and muddy and mosquitoes abounded. We were forced to do street parking due to the broken gate. The outdoor garbage cans were filled to the top. Inside the home, sticky traps for insects were scattered around with multiple insects in them all. Sinks in the bathrooms were small and made it impossible not to have water splash everywhere when trying to wash there. There is an annoying voice alarm that screams "lock door" every time the door is opened. The smoke alarm near the kitchen is very sensitive and went off twice from just using the toaster and boiling water for pasta. As a final problem, our last day there, we were without hot water and were promised via email from the owner, a full night's rent which she later withdrew and she sent less than half the amount.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry that you found the house in such a state, but the previous tenants who left that same morning left us a very nice review! We had expected that week tons of rain and bad weather, so we had to leave for safety the furniture on the ground so they would not fly out. Remember we had the tail end of the Hurricane in Nashville and the reason for the green water in the fountain (due to huge amount of rain) and the gate being stopped. We were very concerned about your safety and when you wrote me about the water problem on Sunday, I did call an emergency plumber (I was in France!) to come and fix the water heater. The water was back in order the same afternoon. I did offer you to go to an hotel and give you back a full night, but you choose to stay at the house and I sent you back 1/2 night as a gesture for your water problem that last only that day. I am sorry to see that this is not sufficient for you on a three nights only stay. Best, Catherine

A wonderful place to stay in Nashville

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property. There was lots of room for everyone, the garden is lovely, and everything we needed was there. It's convenient to downtown and all in all a great place to settle in for your Nashville visit.

Beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

Great service from the owner. The house was beautiful and clean, but it is an older home, and as such smells a bit wet. However, that didn't really bother us as we grew up in older homes. Grounds are beautiful. Everything we needed was provided; we really enjoyed Nashville. Wonderful people.

We had a wonderful time! The neighborhood offered local places to eat and an easy uber ride to everything. Such a warm inviting home with outdoor space for your morning coffee and located close to everything. Would highly recommend to others! As a last minute rental Catherine was wonderful in providing all the information we needed.
