The Shaw house is perfect. Our family was in the area for a week and it kept us comfortable the entire time. The Shaws are very accommodating and made our vacation the best it could be!

Great weekend

  • 4 of 5

We had a crew of 16. The house accommodated us easily. All had a place to sleep - cots, rollaways & air mattresses in addition to the beds. All could eat at a table. It was a challenge with only 2 bathrooms, but we managed. The place was well stocked with snacks & drinks.(Best I have experienced) Linda went above and beyond, even to the extent of bringing a fire stick so we could watch the Clemson game! She was readily available - and so cheerful!

Cozy and "homey"

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been using VRBO for our Christmas get together for the last 3 years. Each place was nice. But I have to say "The Shaw " is my favorite. When Miss Linda walked us through, it felt like I was in my Grandma's house. Such an atmosphere of family and love. We enjoyed ourselves here so very much. It may just be the best Christmas we'very had in a long time. I highly recommend this home. Thank you, Shaws, for all the love you put in those rooms.

Family Christmas

  • 4 of 5

My family enjoyed The Shaw. It was very homey and comfortable. The owners are wonderful! I cannot express their thoughtfulness. Many fun extras were provided. My bed in the

"Recovery Room" was very comfortable. Linda and John were very helpful when we had an issue with the power to the house late on a Sunday night. You will enjoy your stay. It is in the country but still close to "it all".

Great times at The Shaw

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at "The Shaw" rental. It was very comfortable and more than large enough for our group of 10. Mrs. Shaw was very welcoming and lives close by and is available for any problems. It is a short drive to restaurants and stores in Millington, about 30 minutes (depending on traffic) to downtown Memphis. If you have a large group and are looking for a quiet place to stay close to Memphis, I would recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: We want to make sure our guests feel at home away from home. The Shaw's goal is make sure the time you spend with your friends and families is filled with fun and memory making moments of fellowship that will endure forever. We look forward to an opportunity to help make more memories. Thank you for choosing us.

Notes: lists a calendar of most of the current events in Memphis. Also, Memphis, Egypt of the Nile, has 27 historical markers downtown that make for a good walking trail to highlight our city. Our Pyramid, recently bought by Bass Pro, is the only one like it of it's kind in the country. check out Stax & Sun recording studios Also the entertainment districts at Overton Square and Cooper Young have a variety of restaurants and theater for nice dinner and cocktails. Our personal recommendations are Downtown, Gus' world famous Fired Chicken on Front street Fried Mushrooms at the Flying Saucer near Beale Cocktails at the Beauty Shop in Cooper Young Cafe Soul Fish in Cooper Young Paulette's in Harbor town Downtown, formal dining
