I just completed a wonderful visit to Memphis for the first time and the FEMA Guesthouse really contributed to the stay. It was clean, organized, well appointed, charming and in a great walkable neighborhood with dining, coffee and nightlife options within a five minutes walk. Chere was a very accommodating and communicative host and the check-in was simple and effortless. I really hope to come back to Memphis and would definitely make this cute cottage my home base again.
Chere treated us like family and was communicative when we had questions about the house. She was prompt with replies and a very gracious host! We enjoyed having coffee outside in one of a few seating areas in the well-manicured backyard. The house is in the heart of a fun neighborhood and is walkable to coffee shops, restaurants, bars, and Goner Records! The carriage house has all of the charm and quirkiness one would expect in a Midtown Memphis home.
Our stay here was amazing! Chere was friendly and answered my questions (and I had a few as this was my first stay using AirBnB!)
The property is very spacious, clean, tucked away in an amazing yard that's perfect for relaxing after your day running around the city. Very large rooms, two true bedrooms, and a kitchen that's large enough and stocked with everything you need to cook, plus some basic supplies.
We were right around the corner from everything. The area in general was quiet and easy to locate. We really enjoyed our stay here! Thank you for giving us a great place to stay while we visited friends and celebrated our son's birthday!
It was great! The house was clean and the location was right by my favorite place, Cafe Olé! Will be booking again!
Stayed at the place for 9 nights - relocating for a new job, and needed a spot before our lease began. Really great location in Cooper Young, close to taverns and places to eat. BUT, very close to the rxr tracks on southern ave and right below the flight line for the airport. If you're a light sleeper, beware. Highly recommend for a couple night stay, especially in cooler months as the place could be a bit warm unless you crank the a/c. Great backyard and seating area. Really easy to communicate with the host, very responsive even while she was out of town.
Chere worked with us on different arrival times. She was there to greet us and allowed my daughter to get settled in before I arrived. The house was just as nice as advertised. We liked the location very much.
Chere was a fantastic host with a great guesthouse! The location was great and the back guest house is like a country cottage hidden in the middle of Memphis. 5 minutes from most of what cooper young has to offer and plenty of room!
