1 Bed/1 Bath In East Nashville minutes to Downtown but in quiet neighborhood
I'll start with location, location, location: 12 blocks and 1 turn to major freeway access going in any direction in the city; 5 minutes to LP Field, Ascend Amphitheater, and downtown by car; less than 10 minutes to Music City Center; walking distance to much that makes East Nashville such a great place to live and 2 - 5 minutes by car to all the rest of the great eats and shopping of East Nashville; 10 - 15 minutes to almost everything else including the airport, 12th South District, Vanderbilt area, The Gulch, Opryland and much more.
This cozy and comfortable 1 bedroom 1 bathroom apartment has everything you need whether traveling for business, pleasure, or checking out the area for a potential move here. Great for someone traveling alone, a couple, a family, or a small group of friends. This apartment is a duplex and there is a 1 bed 1 bath apartment on the other side that can be rented separately. Just ask me about renting both for groups up to 8 people.
There are hardwood floors throughout, central heat and air, and fully stocked kitchen with all the essentials including a dishwasher.
It sleeps 2 - 4 (or up to 8 if renting both sides) comfortably with a queen sized bed with memory foam topper in the bedroom, with plenty of storage, and a full sized futon couch, with memory foam topper, in the living room. The bedroom has cordless cellular shades to allow lots of light yet maintain privacy and also has black out curtains in case you want to sleep in. There is also a washer and dryer in the kitchen so it is great for longer stays.
As your home away from home the apartment is furnished with a 37" flat screen tv with basic cable, free wifi, and plenty of books and games for adults and children. There is plenty of parking on the street in front of the apartment and no permit is required.
If you are looking for a luxury apartment downtown, this is not it. If you are looking for a very comfortable, very clean, and well appointed apartment with free wifi in the fabulous East Nashville neighborhood, you found it! The apt is 2 miles to downtown, 1 mile to 5 Points and all its wonderful shops and restaurants, and 3 blocks to wonderful Shelby Park and less than a mile to Shelby Bottoms 960 acre Nature Preserve. The apt has 105 5* reviews on another site. Here are a few examples:
"Christy made myself and my girlfriend feel right at home! Her beautiful apartment is spacious, clean and very homely.

"Christy was accommodating and friendly. The apartment is comfortable, cozy and super clean. Highly recommend!" J.O. Feb 2016
"We had a wonderful time in our favorite part of Nashville - East Nashville. Christy's place is the perfect spot. We weren't more than 10 minutes away from any of the spots that we'd planned to go. The apartment is very comfortable and has everything you need for short or long stay. Christy was wonderful. She greeted us when we checked in and gave us some great ideas for food in the area. I highly recommend her place for your visit to Nashville. You can get to the touristy parts quick and easy, but get to come home to the area where all the really cool stuff is!" A. & R.B. Feb 2016
"Great apartment in a great neighborhood! Christy made us feel welcome and the apartment was fully stocked with anything we might need.

About Christy Koster
My husband, Chris, and I are not Nashville natives but lived in Nashville for almost 20 years and very much consider it home. Our teenage son, Zachary, is a native Nashvillian :-) We love sharing our space in our beloved East Nashville neighborhood. We think it is the ideal location for exploring the city. We love to travel and live like locals when we do. We hope you enjoy the opportunity to live like a local in Nashville as well :-)
Christy Koster purchased this Apartment in 1999
Why Christy Koster chose Shelby Hills
We love Nashville and think East Nashville is the best neighborhood (we are biased of course having chose to live here ourselves :-) In addition to being 12 blocks and 1 turn to easy freeway access to all of Nashville and less than 10 mins and less than $10 Uber ride to downtown, East Nashville has so many fabulous restaurants, bars, and shops in walking distance to the apartment. There is also the wonderful Shelby Park 3 blocks up the street. A 15 minute walk through the park takes you to Shelby Bottoms, a 960 acre nature preserve that runs along the Cumberland River. You are so close to all that downtown has to offer but you get to come "home" to a quiet neighborhood. At Shelby Bottoms you can feel like you are in the middle of the wilderness and still only be minutes from the neighborhood!
What makes this Apartment unique
Feel what it is like to live like a local rather than a tourist! So much more comfortable than a hotel room with living room and bedroom with hardwood floors and plenty of storage space, full kitchen including everything you need to cook, washer and dryer, and lots of little extras. The apartment is in a great walkable neighborhood with many wonderful independent restaurants, shops, and bars in walking distance yet 5 minutes to downtown and all that downtown has to offer. It is also 3 blocks to fabulous Shelby Park which previous guests have described as a "runner's delight". On the other side of the park is the 960 acre Shelby Bottoms Nature Preserve where you can roller blade or bicycle on the paved paths or walk on the many side wood-chip paths and see deer, birds, and tons of other wildlife. 5 minutes one direction, you are in the middle of the woods and 5 minutes the other direction, you are in the heart of downtown Nashville! Come see what we love about living in East Nashville.

Clean, Comfy, Good Location
Good location. we were able to easily walk or Uber to downtown Nashville. Quiet street nice place, with a good kitchen and bed.
Convenient, comfy and cute
My husband and I stayed at this adorable apartment for four nights. It was like being home. Comfort and convenience is what we had. We were 5-10 minutes from town. We drove down to Cumberland park area and parked for free on the street. We headed over the Cumberland bridge to downtown Nashville (broadway) every night we were there. I was told at booking it was a short ride and uber was available, however we had our own vehicle so cannot share our uber experience. The owner had our place prepared and even had some snacks waiting on our arrival. There was coffee available. It was a nice touch. A very clean and neat apartment and spacious. When we return to Nashville we will definitely book this great apartment . Also, there is plenty of street parking outside the apartment.
We loved our stay here. Great location!
Cozy home, great location, wonderful host.
Christy really knows what she is doing. Her home is very accommodating for the person/people that will be out a lot or staying in a lot. She supplies simple instructions and helpful suggestions. Also she is very responsive to questions. The WIFI went out temporarily, I let her know through text and she was quick to deal with Comcast to fix the issue. The house is very cozy with all necessary accommodations and much more beyond necessary. Location of the house is wonderful for getting around in any direction. Shelby Ave. Is a busy road but at the same time the neighborhood is pleasantly quiet. There are plenty of nearby stores for necessities and lots of choices for bars, music, restaurants, etc. And even a nice park nearby by the river. A Lyft ride most anywhere we went cost $7-$9. The bed is comfortable and the mattress on the futon is very comfy too. The house was very clean, Christy takes a lot of care into hosting her guests.
Excellent place to stay! Great location and super friendly owner!
We’ve returned to this property because of its convenient location and it’s very accommodating owner! The place is perfect for our needs and feels like home away from home. You won’t go wrong staying here.
Clean and Cozy Apartment
Would highly recommend this apartment
