Lovely Home in Evergreen District

  • 5 of 5

In years of using VRBO to rent homes around the country, this cottage is my absolute favorite. The property itself is both exquisite and casual with a lovely garden and yard area, everything impeccably maintained. Minutes walk to Overton Park, a short drive to downtown, Cooper-Young or Overton Square. Wonderful Memphis neighborhood and perfect hosts. Truly a treasure in the heart of the city and an authentic Southern retreat.

The most charming cottage ever!

  • 5 of 5

The lovely furnishings and lush garden made us feel right at home, with no detail overlooked. It was so beautifully appointed with antiques and interesting items that we were "taking notes" on decoration ideas! The home is centrally located just a few minutes' drive from shopping, sightseeing, dining, and nightlife. We were also lucky enough to meet the owner Bill on our walk in the historic neighborhood, and he was so nice. All of us guests agreed this was the best vacation home we've stayed in (and we've stayed in many.) Thank you, Bill, for a very memorable experience in Memphis!

The cottage and property are magnificent! Beautifully furnished with well stocked pantry/kitchen/bath and comfortable beds. The garden is serene and tranquil--we found ourselves spending all of our free time in the backyard. The owners are personable, available, and accommodating. When in Memphis we will stay here again. Thank you William for a wonderful stay.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We have family in Memphis but needed extra space. This home was perfect. The 2 bedrooms were just what we needed and everything was just top-notch. The home itself was beautiful and very comfortable. The antiques and artwork made the stay even more interesting, and the layout was great for our family. Some of us could hang out in the 'den' with the tv while other sat in the living room and chatted. The 2 bathrooms made it easy to get ready in the mornings and the music made it fun.

We loved it!
