About Megan M

Connector | Traveler | Hostess | Dreamer | Animal Lover | Above all: (Grand) Daughter | Wife | Family | Friend | Believer! My husband Richard and I now call Nashville home after moving from Florida in January, 2013. We love to explore the amazing sights, sounds and tastes of Nashville- and every other city we visit for that matter! While we have a lot of fun hosting, we also take it seriously. We follow local laws and pay taxes to avoid any issues for you (and us). I sit on the board for a local short term rental organization that helps advocate and educate within the community. What all this means for you? You're safe when you choose to stay with us! "Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends."- Maya Angelou

Why Megan M chose Greenwood

We ended up moving to Nashville ourselves because I first traveled here regularly for work. We settled on The Gulch (just off of downtown Nashville) area for our primary residence but always find ourselves exploring hip, cool neighborhoods like East Nashville because of the awesome, local vibe. You don't find many chains on the East side because its mostly locally owned restaurants, shops, etc. East Nashville truly represents some of the best of Nashville. When we got the opportunity to buy a home there, we were beyond excited. This home was love at first sight- ok, maybe lust. :) We'd been looking for just the right place and it took us over a year to find. While it definitely needed a lot of “attention,” we felt like it was a great way to preserve a historic home in Nashville while updating it to serve modern purposes. Since I travel regularly for work and pleasure, it was really important to us to think of all of the little details and incorporate things you would be accustomed to in a hotel but with the experience of a vacation rental with local hosts.

What makes this House unique

Our guests repeatedly share that this is truly a homey environment but in a hip, central and safe location. That is a rare find these days.

                                      What a great little bungalow!! It was so neat and tidy... beautifully decorated and well stocked! Beds were super comfy and the owner left some yummy snacks!:) Basically anywhere downtown was under a $10 Lyft ride! We had a ton of fun!!! Thank you to the owner for sharing your awesome home with us! Would definitely stay here again when we return to Nashville!!:))


                                      Mollie O.

                                      I rented this house for my birthday with my friends! This house exceeded our expectations! Perfect location to go out down town at night! 5 minute walk to the grocery store up the street! Next time I stay in Nashville I will be booking this house, I highly recommend it!

                                      loved everything!

                                      Christina P.

                                      The house was perfect, the neighborhood wonderful and East Nashville a great area to stay. Good restaurants, especially the Peninsula 350 ft. away!


                                      Christina & Family

                                      Wow! Wow! Wow!! The Best Place We Have Ever Stayed!! Deserves 10 Stars!! Would Stay here anytime!

                                      Phyllis A.

                                      The house is incredible, but what truly sets this place apart from any where my family has ever stayed is the host! Megan felt like family! We did not meet her in person, but her interactions are so personal they make you feel like you’ve know her forever! We were celebrating our twins 13th birthday! Megan had balloons and cupcakes waiting for them! Our puppy, Beast, had treats and bowls waiting as well! If you want to feel like you are staying at a true home away from home, book with Megan now!

                                      The location is perfect! No where we went was more than 20 minutes away and most were under 10 minutes!! The neighborhood felt safe and like home!!

                                      Nothing about our stay didn’t deserve 5 Stars or more!! Thank you from my family for an amazing trip Megan!!!

                                      Owner's Response:

                                      Wow! Wow! Wow back! Thank you so much for the kind words. We couldn't agree more. Y'all were just such a pleasure to host and we absolutely loved hearing about your time with us and the pictures, too! I hope that the boys enjoyed their birthday and that welcoming their teenage year in Nashville will be one to remember. Do come back and visit us - and stay in touch! :)
