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 #TeamMCL 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,

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

This loft is located in the heart of the tourist area of Nashville. 2 blocks to lower Broadway, a block from the Ryman and a short drive to the other popular Nashville areas. The beds are super comfortable as are the pillows. The walls do not extend up to ceiling so there is no real noise separation from the other sleeping areas. Once the first person gets up everyone can hear. There is no real view to speak of and you have to be quiet after 10pm. This was our biggest challenge...going out to listen to music and enjoy the honkey tonks (aka drink!!!) of lower Broadway brought us home around 1-2am. It was hard to be silent! Overall a good stay and a great location!

This is by far the best place to stay! Suzanne is awesome and can't thank you enough for letting us in a bit early to drop our stuff and do a light shopping! The lofts are extremely comfortable an cozy! Nice kitchen to cook if you like or just get take out and bring it back to the room! There is a Liquor store and a market within a block of the lofts which is great! When you talk about location! WOW literally two blocks from Broadway! doesn't get any better. No need to rent a car we used UBER the whole time we where there which wasn't much because you could walk to everything Make sure you go to Jacks for Ribs best ribs in town! Music playing by 10:30 in the morning its incredible our fav was at Nudies! Best bands! Dance dance dance! Be sure to go to Pickers it's amazing tried to get a book signed but no luck guess they are to big now for the little people but still amazfing to see! Grand Ole Opray was a disappointment but was amazing to see too! We were at the end of the season so didn't see much. Make sure you go to the Music Hall of fame well worth it! We are hoping to go back an rent the 10 person unit that we got a sneak peek of! Definitely will go back though Thank you so much Suzanne sorry this took so long

Gorgeous Loft! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this wonderful property! The loft itself is as beautiful, comfortable, and spacious as the photos make it out to be, and the location simply can't be beat. We were within walking distance of Honky Tonk Row, the Ryman Auditorium, the Bridgestone Arena,great restaurants, a wonderful cafe, etc. etc. etc.

We were a little bit concerned about noise when we first arrived and found packages of foam ear plugs in every room, but we had absolutely no issues with street noise or noise from other guests during our stay.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property, and I would stay there again if we get a chance to return to Nashville.
