                                                    Great place in a great location

                                                    Kyle J.

                                                    I needed a last minute place to stay for a couple of days somewhere in Memphis. Having never been to the area before, I wasn't sure where to stay. Thank goodness I looked at VRBO and found this gem! So much nicer than a pricey hotel, and in a location that proved to be ideal. So much to do within walking distance. The accommodations are safe, comfortable and clean. A comfy, quiet bedroom, living space that is also comfortable with a good selection of tv options, clean and charming bathroom facilities, and the perfect kitchen space, including a washer/dryer. This is one of the best stocked rentals I have ever booked. And there are easy printed instructions for any of the equipment in the whole place ensuring you don't push the wrong button! Parking is on the street, but it is a dead-end street with very little traffic, and it's only a short walk up the paved driveway to the door of the bungalow. The owner is very responsive and helpful...I had many questions before and during my stay and she quickly answered telling me just what I needed to know. This was the perfect place to stay for this solo traveler! I will definitely stay here again if another visit to Memphis comes up, and I hope it does!

                                                    Thank you for choosing The Bunkhouse Kyle. It was a pleasure to have you stay in Memphis and realize the excellence of location, accommodation, and comfort. Please plan a longer visit and come back to stay at The Bunkhouse! Diane

                                                    Very comfortable, great location, would happily book again

                                                    Mel K.

                                                    We (my husband and I) were disappointed to only have three nights in Memphis as we loved everything about the city, the music and our stay at Bennie's Bunkhouse. We only booked a couple of days before staying, and Diane was very prompt to confirm our booking. She was an excellent host, popping over to meet us on our first night, answering all our questions and giving us some great advice on where to see, visit and eat.

                                                    The location of Bennie's was excellent - we were able to walk to a supermarket for supplies as well as to many great places to eat, drink and listen to live music. It was very easy to get to the main tourist places (we had a car), and great to be away from the main tourist area after a busy day. The Bunkhouse was very well set up with everything we needed, including an extremely comfy bed.

                                                    We have stayed in a lot of VRBO accommodation over the years and this was one of our favourites. Thanks Diane. We hope to see you again soon, either in Memphis or Australia.

                                                    The house was very well set up, very accommodating! The owner was extremely helpful, as well as the neighbors! I would stay here again! My wife, our son and I stayed for 2 nights! The back patio was nice, private and peaceful!

                                                    We loved it!

                                                    Tori J.

                                                    The property was in the perfect location for a wedding we attended in Memphis! We arrived late and check in was super easy! In a super fun part of town, but on a quiet street. We thought there was plenty of room, and everything was kept up nicely! We would highly reccomend!

                                                    Fantastic stay!

                                                    We loved Bennie's Bunkhouse! It was beautifully appointed with a nice kitchen, bathroom and comfy bed. The neighborhood was great, and very close to the park. The owner, Diane, was super helpful in giving us advice, including letting us know about the wonderful free concerts in the park nearby. Diane even made sure to leave us a waterproof blanket for the park concert after it rained! All together a lovely time, and we hope to come back again!

                                                    This was our second time staying at the bunkhouse. Its location is great -- a quick walk to Overton Square, a five minute drive to Rhodes College, and a short drive to either downtown Memphis or the Germantown area.

                                                    The apartment is well-equipped and well-designed. Diane is very helpful.

                                                    A strong recommendation for the bunkhouse if you're coming to Memphis.
