Our brand new pool house comfortably fits two or three. In a completely separate house behind our home, this perfectly located residence in East Memphis provides wonderful amenities including a kitchenette with granite countertops, WiFi access, a 50' flat screen TV and Blu-ray DVD, and lots of privacy. The pool house is 2 miles to Clark Tower or Baptist Hospital, 3.5 miles to Crescent Center and 10 miles to St. Jude/Downtown.
Our cozy pool house boasts a comfortable and clean queen sized bed. The kitchenette maximizes both function and beauty allowing guests to pull up a bar stool and sip a quiet cup of coffee in the mornings. The spacious walk in closet doubles as a second sleeping space for young children in either a pack-n-play or on an air mattress, either of which we are happy to provide. The 50' flat screen provides an opportunity for guests to kick back and relax. For your convenience, there is also a Blu-ray DVD player. The pool and woods are not available for guest use, however it does provide a beautiful view.
Guests have an exclusive parking spot reserved for them in the driveway (if you are in two cars, you'll need to park the second on the street). Guests will be given key access so you can come and go on your own schedule. You may come and go any time of day or night, and late check ins are no problem.
Interaction with Guests
When you stay at our pool house, our hope is to provide you the maximum amount of privacy as possible. If you would like to meet and have some interaction, we are glad to meet you, but we offer a turnkey experience for guests with primary communication. You are not likely to see us much unless the kids are playing in the driveway or backyard (which happens much more regularly on the weekends and the summer months). In general, expect minimal interaction and plenty of privacy.
We LOVE our neighborhood. We live just a quarter mile from a smaller neighborhood park designed for one-year-old to adults, and we are a mile from access to the Memphis Greenline, a rails-to-trails system that covers a large portion of Greater Memphis. From there, you can walk, run, or ride to all kinds of options including High Point Pizza and Shelby Farms, the largest municipal park in the U.S.
Generally speaking, Uber and Lyft are readily available from our house. Our home is centrally located in East Memphis, just five minutes from Poplar Avenue, Sam Cooper Boulevard, I-240 or I-40. When it comes to getting around quickly, you really can't find a better location in East Memphis.
If you're looking to use public transportation, you should know that Memphis does not have a great public transit system, particularly this far east. That being said, our house is a 0.5 mile walk to the nearest MATA stop at Walnut Grove and White Station.
Other Things to Note
The pool house is cozy (not huge) and has just one full size bed, therefore we recommend this space for one or two adults. Beyond that, we are happy to provide a pack-n-play and/or an air mattress for smaller children if you'd like. The closet is large enough to fit both, creating a cavernous darkroom for your little ones (or just your suitcase)!
We have a Labrador on site, who is friendly but won't bother you much (she's mostly inside but does have access to the backyard, where you'll be), so we do not allow other pets.
Sorry, no smoking in the house or anywhere on the property.
