About this listing

Come share our home in the historic Cooper-Young neighborhood in the heart Midtown.
Our house is inviting with plenty of space to spread out. You can expect a safe, inviting, and walkable neighborhood. Downtown is only a few minutes by car or bus.

The space

We are opening our house and its spacious modern floor plan in one of Memphis' most historic neighborhoods. The guest bedroom is in the front of the house and is furnished with a full bed and futon chair that lays down for sleeping.

Guest access

Guests will have full access to guest bath, laundry room, open living room, large kitchen, and private backyard with grill, fire pit, and hammock.
Books, records, DVDs and video games are available to keep you content on a rainy day.
We have three bikes available for use as well.

Interaction with guests

We love to have company and entertain but will happily give you as much space as you like. More than likely Jonathan will be cooking and likes to cook for a crowd. We're open to eating, drinking, and trading stories or will happily point you on your way to adventures in the city.

Other things to note

We have two giant friendly dogs that only stay outside and two cats that rule the indoor kingdom. They all love attention but will stay out of your way if your not an animal person.

Jonathon and Alison were great hosts. Everything was perfect. The house was really clean and the house is close to really good restaurants. The cats add to the hospitable environment.

I arrived very late at night, but getting in was simple and their friendly cat was up to greet me. The house was spotless, the bed was comfortable, and the private bathroom was perfect. Another great AirBnB experience.

The home is lovely and the cats are amazing. Cleanliness and preparedness for a guest was wonderful. Jonathan and Alison were great communicators and quite responsive to any questions that I had. The location of their home was great and their home was really nice! Nice upgrades but still cozy!

This place is a hidden gem and an outstanding value. This was my first Airbnb experience, and it was a fine introduction to the concept. I'm glad I tried it and would be glad to stay here again. The house is on a quiet block of a rather obscure Memphis street in the Cooper-Young neighborhood, a development built around the turn of the last century. (The house itself is modern but fits the neighborhood style.) The house is within easy walking distance of the center of Cooper-Young, where one finds a variety of bars, cafés, and restaurants for every taste. Parking is on the street, because the driveway is too small to accommodate more than a couple of compact cars, but the street itself is so quiet and out of the way, that there need be no concern about security. Major Memphis streets and the Interstates are only minutes away. The rental room is the front bedroom of the house. The room is quite spacious, perhaps 275-300 square feet, with 9-foot ceilings (as is true throughout the house). The room was spotlessly clean, as was the guest bathroom immediately next to it in the hall that runs the length of the house. The room features a full-sized bed, very comfortable, a free-standing rack where the guest can hang his or her clothes and place luggage, two bedside tables, an overhead fan with three speeds, controlled by a remote, an interesting retro "lamp cube," perhaps 5 1/2 feet high, operated by a foot switch, an overstuffed chair, and a credenza with a 36" flat screen TV. The guest bathroom, just next door, is also spacious, filled with a variety of soaps, shampoos, and body lotions, and with plenty of hot water in the shower. Alison and Jonathan are a very pleasant young couple who strive to make their guests feel welcome and are happy to accommodate guest requests. Two cats roam the house, and although they are not overly aggressive, one will dart into the room whenever you open the door and even seek admission in the early morning. There are two dogs in the back yard. The place overall is clean, spacious, appealing, and nicely managed, and I highly recommend it.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful experience staying with Jonathan and Alison! Their house is so beautiful, inviting, and extremely clean. The bed was super comfortable as well. We had a fully stocked bathroom, wifi, Netflix, etc. I cannot say enough good things about them! We had some very unfortunate car trouble during our stay (putting that lightly), and they were both extremely generous, helpful, and gracious to us while we were trying to get everything situated. Their pets are wonderful, especially the adorable loving kitties. They live in a fantastic neighborhood with lots to explore and gave us awesome recommendations! Plus they are just super fun to hang out with if you want some company! I would highly recommend them a million times for anyone wanting to stay in Memphis!!!!!
