We had a great stay at the FEMA guesthouse. It was spacious, yet cozy and in a fun neighborhood-Cooper Young. Great for a family or friends traveling together.
I stayed at Chere's guesthouse for around 2 months while working at Memphis University. The house and the garden really gives you the Memphis feeling and it's located in a interesting and nice area (Cooper-Young), with everything from farmer markets, hipster coffee joints to tasty restaurantes and cool shops such as Urban Outfitters and Flashback.
Chere was the perfect host. Everything was always taken care of, even though I had many different guests coming around all the time. She borrowed me her bike, which I used the 2 months and she took me to a church that feeds and shelters homeless to 'experience the Memphis love and grittiness,' as she called it. She always took her time to talk to me and my guest about Memphis, the US, places we were going to see, experiences we have had and many other things. She even invited my parents for dinner to taste homemade Louisiana Gumbo.
Chere is just one of those persons that you instantly connect to and like, and I would recommend her and her guesthouse for anyone that wants to experience the Memphis feeling and hospitality. Thanks a lot Chere, I'm already looking forward to my return, Kris.
We were so glad we stayed at Chere's Guesthouse, a much better option than one of the downtown hotels.
It's hard to find an AirBnB more convenient and hospitable than Miss Chere! She welcomed our small family warmly and even provided art supplies for our two young girls. The play kitchen in their room was their favorite, for sure.
The King bed upstairs could not have been more comfortable. We had everything we needed and it was all so convenient to everything in Memphis. Great neighborhood and a serene sitting space outdoors.
A good place for warmer weather, unfortunately it was too cold for us. Other wise the accommodation is as described.
FEMA Guesthouse was great for my needs, and exceeded my expectations. Moreover, Chere was a generous, interesting, inclusive, and gracious hostess,
Another great Airbnb stay. Chere was quick to get back to me with any questions. Check in was simple and convenient. The place was clean and comfortable and had more than enough space for the 3 of us who stayed there. There was a little bit of train noise from the tracks not far away, but nothing too bad.
What a lovely host Chere was to my friend and I.
We asked her for a Memphis experience that was outside the box, and boy, did she deliver!
She took us to a bunch of art galleries along a hip strip of downtown Memphis, and we also got to have dinner with her.
Her property was charming, the neighborhood was centrally located and the fema house was cozy.
We arrived late, and Chere was waiting for us! She was so hospitable and shared her knowledge of Memphis with us. The Guesthouse was so adorable and cozy. We'd stay here again!!
Chere is a super nice host who will take care of whatever request you may have. The house is kinda old and a little quirky, however very spacious and has two AC's that keep it cool and comfortable. It is definitely a good value for money. You can't beat this location in Cooper-Young. It's the nicest neighborhood in Memphis and is close to everything.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
