Loved staying here. Would definitely stay again!
We frequently rent VRBO’s and Bill’s home ranks amongst the best of any we have rented so far. The house is very clean, well stocked and well maintained. The decorations in the house and in the garden are fascinating, almost like being in a museum! Most importantly, the beds are comfortable and coffee was provided. The fridge was stocked with fresh OJ and a few other breakfast items which was a very nice and totally unexpected bonus!
Great home, gracious host
Front and especially the back yard were a10. Art work through out the place was exceptional. Amenities in the kitchen were an extra big plus. Enjoyed meeting Bill. Very gracious host.
Having grown up in Memphis, I know the areas all over town. And as a newlywed, I'm breaking my 70-something husband into the "Southern Charm and Gracious Ways". He's eagerly absorbing it, and staying in the Evergreen area of Overton Park was the perfect choice. The home could not be better furnished for everything a guest would want to do! The hosts had thought everything out! The fridge had butter, english muffins and fresh squeezed orange juice. The artwork and furnishings in the home were very eclectic from the light whimsical to the deep Southern Charm of antique silver, crystal, and antique oriental rugs. Everything was immaculate. The private patio and gardens were calming and cozy. The owners either hired, or are, outstanding decorators with an eye for lighting, style and color. The neighborhood felt very safe. There were people out constantly walking, riding, and jogging. There's no question that going forward we're not to be staying at the Peabody, but here.
Great Memphis property
Sweet spot near Rhodes College campus and Overton Park. Bill is a great host and was very attentive via phone, etc. Highly recommend!
Fabulous - beautiful gardens and home decor. Highly recommended.
The gardens on this property are fabulous including a koi fish pond and antique brick walkways. Everywhere you look there is something interesting to explore from the plants to the wrought iron to the cement planters and statues. The home itself is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G, again with so many things to explore. The art and decor is superb. Everything is clean and fresh with plenty of towels and amenities. This owner takes pride in this rental; he has set the bar high. This is definitely a 5 Star - A+ Rating.
A truly unique vacation rental
This is not your typical VRBO. The property is stunning. The house and gardens are decorated with artifacts that the owners have collected in their travels over a 40 year period. There is so much attention to detail everywhere you look. The outdoor space is huge with several seating areas including a covered patio. The garden is full of beautiful flowers, fountains and trees. The house was well stocked. The kitchen is a little small but it's got everything you need in a vacation house. Bill and William, the owners, were so gracious and helpful. We would definitely stay here again when we return to Memphis.
