About April Dace

My name is April Dace. I grew up in the Motor City. Seventeen years ago, I moved to Nashville to work in the entertainment industry as a video producer and story teller. Nashville’s southern charm immediately won me over. It's a city that breathes creativity and provides an environment for creatives to express themselves through many outlets.

My passion for all things creative spilled over into interior design and a fascination with historic homes. Turning Sweetbriar Patch into a respite for travelers visiting Nashville has become one of my favorite unexpected hobbies.

April Dace purchased this apartment in 2016

Why April Dace chose Belmont/Hillsboro

Sweetbriar is my second VRBO property. I love creating environments and sourcing pieces to fill a space, so I wanted to find a property that was historic. When I came across this house I knew it had the charm and location perfect for guests who wanted a taste of what Nashville is like--especially it's 12 South and Hillsboro Village burgeoning neighborhoods. I hope my Sweetbriar Patch will provide a tranquil place for you to relax during your stay in Nashville.

Lastly, since one of my passions is serving. At the heart of my job, I serve people--clients, artists, and my crew. Alongside my love for home renovation, design, and my city--I look forward to creating and sharing my little corner of the world with you.

What makes this apartment unique

The location can't be beat whether you're visiting the universities or coming to Nashville for a getaway. Downtown is less than 3 miles away. Belmont, 12th South and Hillsboro Village are great boroughs with killer shopping, restaurants and coffee shops. And you can't leave this town without a taste of Jeni's Ice Cream!

Great location but otherwise below average.

  • 3 of 5

The good:

- location and convenient to most attractions.

- nice shower

The negatives were:

- overall condition very poor, needs a lot of work, poor lighting and lights not working,

- bed needs better mattress

- pillows were like a pancake

- kitchen not what expected. No frying pan, fridge door can’t be opened fully, no dishwasher.

- tiny bathroom, tiny vanity, had to put stuff on dining table

- laundry worked fine but very noisy and no separation from living area

Overall price too high for the place especially adding cleaning fee. Better off with hotel room.

Very Disappointing

  • 1 of 5

I did my research, read all the good reviews, and the communication with the property manager was good... then I arrived.

The place is pretty old, lanolium floors, plastic shower walls, cheap furnishings -to give a few examples.

There were no sheets for the pull out bed, all but 1 towel had significant rust stains on them, there was a big, noisy party in the first floor unit, 3 lamps had burned out lightbulbs, The outside lights didn’t work which made the very steep, rusted out staircase even more dangerous, and some of the dishes had been put away dirty. Trying to figure out all the lighting that didn’t work, we had to move some furniture around to access outlets. This is when we discovered that the floors were only swept in the pathways. There was dirt, dust, coins, and other debris behind the living room and bedroom furniture.

The property manager did take care of the other noisy renters, told us where to find the key to the locked closet to get sheets, said he would bring new towels - which never arrived, and offered a full refund if we left the property - it was 9:00 PM and I was traveling with my older mother in law. Trying to find a new place that late just wasn’t feasible. We stayed, but had to wash all the dishes and linens before we could use them.

In hind sight, I should have left as I have become ill while staying here and am certain it is from the unclean environment.

I use VRBO often and have never had a bad or even disappointing experience until now. I do not recommend this rental nor would I ever stay here again.

Could not have asked for a better place for a long weekend get away! The location is fabulous walking distance to tons of restaurants and shops and a quick uber ride downtown. It is also right off the highway making it easy for airport and further traveling. Everything was clean and decorated very cozy! The place has everything you could need while traveling. Owners were also so great and prompt to work with. Plan to stay here again on my next Nashville getaway!!

Great jem in a cute neighborhood close to the city

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Nashville and the Perch was the perfect place to stay. Having a rental car was a plus to get around the city and different neighborhoods and the parking behind the house was great. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. We would definitely stay at the Perch again if we come back to Nashville.
