We are one block from Sevier Park and located between the 12 South District and 8th Ave South/Melrose, and only 5-10 minutes from downtown.

Spectacular Place in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our accommodations. Beautiful place. The rental is located in a great neighbourhood. It's is a 5 minute walk to the 12 south shopping district, which is a very hip and neat place to shop. The rental was clean and the owners were spectacular to communicate with. Finally, my wife and I like to exercise while on vacation and there is a beautiful and recently built community centre which has a spacious gym (5 minute walk away). We highly recommend this vacation rental. Thanks!

Wonderful 12 South

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our first experience with VRBO. Our stay at the loft in 12 South was absolutely wonderful. It was so pleasant to come home at night to the loft rather than a hotel room and it was in a great neighborhood close to everything. John & Lorie were so kind to leave so many extras that included snacks , wine , coffee and cream. We were provided with all sorts of toiletries and everything we needed was in the kitchen. We loved our stay and hope to return.

Absolutely Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I booked the Loft for 7 nights, and we can not say enough good things about our stay. The place was cozy, and comfortable, and spacious, and IMMACULATELY clean! It had everything we needed, plus many extras! Bottle of red wine!! Whaaaat?? That was a very pleasant surprise, as we got in about 10:00 pm local time but had been up since 3:00 in the morning, and just sitting and chilling and winding down with a glass of wine was lovely.... The location was great - 12 South is a beautiful up-and-coming family neighborhood with great restaurants and fun bars. We made good use of the info that was provided, both in the well-organized binder, plus the multiple books and magazines about Nashville that were laying around the living room. The building is completely private, and we used our own little patio to enjoy coffee in the sunshine, while planning our day.

All our email interactions with the owners, John and Lori, were answered promptly and positively. We will most definitely go back to Nashville, and we'd stay at the Loft again, without a doubt.

Do check out Burger Up while you're there, awesome food, and amazing staff, and a short walk from the loft. We didn't rent a car, we bought week passes on the local buses, and used that as our transport into and out of town; there was only 1 night when we had to cab back to the loft, as the buses quit at 10:30 on weeknights. For $27 the week pass was really good value.

The home was exactly how advertised. John met us when we arrived and gave us a quick overview of the area. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. John and Lori stocked the home with all the necessities (coffee, creamer, etc) and a load of other goodies (wine, crackers, candy, etc.). The home is located centrally with easy access to the downtown Nashville area and visits outside the city. We highly recommend this home to anyone visiting Nashville and look forward to staying here in the future!!

Thoughtful touches

  • 5 of 5

The 12 South loft was perfect for our stay in Nashville. It was impeccably clean and the owners were pretty thoughtful of their guests. We arrived to find a refrigerator with bottled water and a few other drinks. They were stocked full with coffee and tea selections. There was even a drawer in the kitchen with several snacks. After driving for hours to Nashville, the last thing we wanted to do was to go to the store for a few essentials in the kitchen. Even some of the toiletries they provided were above and beyond what we're used to seeing at a vacation rental, much less a nice hotel. I thought the make up remover wipes were a nice touch. I noticed there was a container of contact solution and even a new toothbrush for the forgetful traveler. The owners are very organized- it shows in the binder with helpful info about the space, the neighborhood, and included suggested restaurants and menus. The location was a nice, quiet neighborhood, within walking distance from a lovely park, as well as a strip of boutiques and restaurants along 12th Ave. The drive downtown was always less than 10 minutes. We took Uber and Lyft a couple of times to different part of Nashville, and the trips were under $7 each time.
