Room with double bed & private bath
1 Mile to Titans Stadium/Central Business District/Honky Tonk Live Music Bars/Bridgestone Arena/Music City Convention Center (Safe 20-25 minute walk)
You'll have your own private bedroom with a double bed and a private, connected bath on the 2nd floor of my 6 year old home. Convenient to downtown, safe, clean and comfortable. My home is well decorated, modern, and close to EVERYTHING!
I am looking forward to having you stay in my home. When you are one of my guests, you are part of the house and part of the family. No security deposit. I just ask that you take care of my house while you're here.
I have a small 16lb. Jack Russell Terrier that is quiet and stays in her crate. She's a cutie. Almost everybody that meets her wants to abduct her and put her in their suitcases.
Free wireless internet, coffee/tea/drinks, hairdryer, steam iron, and HDTV with Apple TV provided. When I can accommodate (especially for international guests that arrive at Nashville International Airport), I'm happy to give free rides to downtown or the airport. I also provide toiletries (soap shampoo, lotion, medicines, hairspray) and towels and fresh linens for your double bed during your stay. There is also a hair dryer and a iron and ironing board in the room to use at your disposal. A TV is also in the room, along with a DVD player (not connected to cable). Bring your own DVDs to watch movies in bed if you'd like. Redbox is also up the street one block.
My guests are my friends. Hosting on airBnB has been such a blessing to me. I love it!
You'll have your own key to the house once you check-in. When you arrive, i'll help you get your bags, park, and catch your breath. Once we get a chance to say hello, I'll take you up to the room, give you the wireless key for your tablet, laptop, or mobile phone.
Come and go, as much as you'd like--late or early. You're welcome to hang out with me and my friends if you'd like. I've taken guests to the bar with my buddies. I've tagged along with them. We often go to dinner together. I love getting to know my guests! That's the main reason I host. If you're new to the South, don't be shocked by my kindness. I'm from Alabama and we treat guests like family where I come from.
I have developed a 20 minute tour [by car] of the downtown area to highlight key places and areas you might want to visit while on your stay. This is obviously up to your discretion (and my availability), but I am more than happy to do this. Of course, it is complimentary and just an added perk that you can enjoy by staying with me in my home during your visit to Nashville!
Nashville's diverse dining, entertainment, and cultural events at your doorstep, the Germantown neighborhood is the perfect location for guests visiting Nashville. Germantown was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979 and contains beautifully diverse architecture spanning from the early 1800s to present. This close-knit community features unique events such as the annual Oktoberfest Street Festival, Farmer's Market, as well as regular concerts and music festivals. The Germantown neighborhood also offers easy freeway access, as well as access to the Cumberland River Greenway and Downtown nightlife.
The area my home is in is called the Capitol District. Why? It sits in the shadow of the Tennessee Capitol Building, the seat of our State government. You can look the area up if you want more information. It is truly a wonderful area, and its undergoing an amazing renaissance that will bring even more amazing bars and restaurants, housing options, and outdoor spaces to live, work and play. It's one of Nashville's hottest areas in which to live. The new $150M First Tennessee Park, the new home of the Nashville Sounds baseball team, is going up 4 blocks from my home.
If you're visiting Nashville from outside of the U.S. (and pending my availability), I always like to either pick you up from the airport or take you to the airport on your way out of town. I have my own business, so I have a flexible schedule. I try to be as available as I can be, so i'll absolutely offer rides or activities that you can participate in with me and my friends whenever possible!
Ask me for guidance on the best ways to get around town. It's 0.7 miles to Broadway, 1 mile to the Titans Stadium, and Gulch bars and restaurants. 1.3 miles to Music City Convention Center. $5-6 cab ride home from the bars on Broadway. $25 cab fare to the airport.
There's off-street parking available for free.
We have UBER and Lyft in Nashville. They are ride sharing services that are to cabs what airBnB is to hotels. If you're not from the area, they often have promo codes that will give you free credits for getting around when you're in town because you're new to the service. You won't have any problem getting around town, I promise!
No smoking in the house, of course.
You're more than welcome to interact with my dog (Alice) as much as you'd like. If you want to take her on a walk, fine. If you want to play with her, fine. Don't let her in the room as she has been peeing on the carpet recently. Just remember to leave her in her crate at the bottom of the stairs before you leave the house. She is a super sweet, easy going dog. She's the hit of the house, hands down.
Michael is a very attentive host. Make sure to take him up on his offer for a tour, it was very informative and provided great photo opportunities! The location of the space is convenient. Nashville offers a free shuttle service which has a stop at the nearby Farmers' Market and will easily bring you downtown.
Staying at Mikes was perfect. Room was great, private bathroom, everything supplied. Close to downtown, got free Uber ride to downtown thanks to Mike. Would definetly recommend staying at his home. Next time we will be going to Nashville I will hopefully stay there again.
Everything was exactly as we had read on the listing page. Michael was a great host, giving us tour of Nashville when we arrived so we could get our bearings and made us feel very welcome in his home. It was a great location close to everything. Thank you Michael!
Originally there was some miss-communication between the check in time. Michael wasn't prepared for our arrival and was caught off guard. The bedroom was clean and organized but the apartment itself was not as well maintained as shown in the pictures. I'd recommend Michael because his place was close to downtown and the bedroom is nice, but it was initially awkward and unprofessional.
I hoped my hospitality would mask how awkward and embarrassed I felt by Andrew's unexpected noon arrival for the 3PM check-in he and I discussed and agreed upon. I was probably too overwhelmed to put on a genuine smile under such circumstances. A "professional" host at the Hilton or Marriott would have turned Andrew and his friend away at the door for showing up three hours ahead of the agreed upon check-in time. I chose to extend a warm welcome to my guests because this is my house they're walking into-- not my business. I'm proud to say that I've earned my 5 stars over 300+ reservations for being hospitable, not professional. Hosting airBnB guests isn't my job. It's something I love to do. I don't think Andrew got the memo. Poor thing.
Such a pleasant experience! Mike was incredibly helpful. The space is neat, clean, exactly as described, and supplied with everything you can think of.
Mike is great! This was my first time doing Air BnB, and he made me feel right at home! I was busy at a conference out of town, so didn't have a lot of time to hang out, but I enjoyed his guided tour and his food recommendations. Great location, great pup! I would definitely recommend Mike to prospective Nashville travelers!
Foi a melhor possível. Michael é realmente o melhor anfitrião possível. Nos ajudou em absolutamente tudo que precisamos, esteve sempre disponível e atencioso. Foi maravilhoso!
I'm a 31 year old guy living in Nashville, TN. I built my house downtown 6 years ago, close to downtown and the bars/nightlife. I've hosted around 300 (crazy, I know!) airBnB guests since April 2013, so i've gotten the hang of things and think i've got things set up nicely. I know that if you come stay the night or week, you'll have a wonderful time in Nashville, and at my house as your home base. I'm happy to make restaurant recommendations and guide you towards public transit and must see sights and sounds. My house is 1 mile from the Gulch, A 20 minute walk to Broadway, and less than a mile from the Farmers Market and the brand-new $150 million First Tennessee Park, the upcoming home of the Nashville Sounds baseball team in 2015. I'm well connected to the nightlife and social scene here in town, so i'd be happy to point you to places i'd go or you could always hang out with me and my buddies when we head out. Hands down—airBnB is one of the best things i've added to my life in recent years. I've stayed as a guest and i'm an experienced host. What an amazing experience it has been.
