Chere was a great host. She was out of town when we arrived but everything was ready for us, it was easy to access the house and we were able to communicate with her by text. The house is cute and cozy, good for a small family. The kitchen is dated but has everything you need. The air conditioners worked well. The internet stopped working at one point but we were able to reach Chere about it and were given instructions on how to fix it without problem. Overall a good experience. It was cute and comfortable and has the feel of an older guesthouse. The neighborhood is good and a very easy walk to Cooper-Young area, but be careful which direction you walk because Memphis neighborhoods change from good to bad in a matter of blocks.
Perfect house in a great location. Easy walking access to Cooper-Young and plenty of space if you need to hang around the house. Super easy to communicate with owner. Made the trip a breeze.
The guesthouse was in the perfect location in the neighborhood of Cooper Young. It was very comfortable for four guests. The only issue we had was a bit of trouble working the Internet and cable. Chere was very accomodating.
We were on a cross country bicycle trip and pit-stopped in Memphis. The cottage was lovely and Chere was as accommodating as possible. We plan on going back next year-but for 2 weeks!
Chere was a great host and had made the appropriate arrangements for my family and I to feel right at home even when we arrived in the middle of the night. She even allowed us to stay for a while after the check-out time since it wasn't being occupied immediately afterward -- very kind. Cooper-Young is also a pretty good neighborhood with a coffee shop a couple of blocks from this place that you absolutely must visit. I recommend Chere's place to anybody looking for a place to stay in Memphis. Oh, and you will find her own wonderful paintings hung all over the place!
The guesthouse was quite roomy and very conveniently located. Although an older structure and a little lopsided, we found it charming, along with our hostess, Chere. She contacted us ahead of time and remained in touch throughout our stay. There are several great eateries and a Saturday market within a block or two. Our family was made to feel welcome and we appreciated the space and flexibility to come and go on our own schedule. Thanks.
Enjoyed my stay with Chere. The coach house was clean, just a problem with shower. Only draw back was the dingy face towels.
Chere was a fantastic host! She responded to our booking right away and was super helpful in answering any of our questions. We had just moved to Memphis, but did not have a place to call home yet. We stayed in the FEMA Guesthouse for a week while house/apartment searching. It was a large space for two people and gave us an opportunity to discover the Cooper-Young neighborhood. You can walk to bars and cafes in 5 minutes. I had to work remotely during the weekdays and Chere was so kind to offer her printer, washer dryer, etc if I needed anything. You can't ask for better hospitality. Thanks Chere! Hope to see you again around town!
We had a great time at the FEMA guesthouse. The house was plenty big to house me, my husband, our toddler, and two grandparents for a long weekend. It's located in a wonderful neighborhood (Cooper-Young) with lots of restaurants and coffee shops, and it's close to downtown and other activities like the zoo. Chere was a wonderful and very accommodating host. We'd definitely stay here again.
Our group of 4 enjoyed our 2 night stay here while visiting Memphis. Chere was lovely. The house was quaint and perfect for our needs. There is a row of nice little cafes and bars within a 5 minute walk. Downtown with Beale St, the Civil Right Museum, etc, are a 10 minute drive away. We highly recommend a stay here.
