Unwind in our charming 2 BR Carriage House behind our ca. 1908 home in Midtown's Central Gardens.

Voted Memphis' Best, Central Gardens is a gorgeous neighborhood between Downtown & Cooper Young/Overton Square with EASY access to all.

The space

Pretty, private back yard Carriage House with 2BR up & 1BA down. A queen air mattress can be provided in either BR to accommodate a 5th/6th guest.

You'll love the full kitchen with bar. It's a great place to hang out and have some cocktails, or head out to explore our gritty, soulful musical heritage and the fun to be had in the local music scene which is authentic, myriad and very accessible. The living space includes a cozy seating nook and Gramma's original 50's dinette set off the kitchen. Upstairs, the spacious Master has a double bed w pillow top mattress, BR 2 has two single beds and a reading nook w vintage recliner. Our air matress will fit in either if you have more than 4 in your party.

Perfect accommodations for Gonerfest, Memphis in May, Beale Street Music Fest, BBQ Festival, Memphis Grizzlies (playoff games!), Cooper Young Festival, Stax, Graceland, Sun Studios, The National Civil Rights Museum, The National Ornamental Metal Museum, The Memphis Rock and Soul Museum and so much more.

The guest house is also where our family stays when they come to visit, as well as a popular vacation home. The additional linens in storage and the dressers are reserved for the next guests and family. We provide a towel and washcloth for each guest listed on the reservation, as well as a handtowel for the bathroom. Please ask if you need additional linens so we can plan ahead.

We all had a really lovely stay at Matt and Kimble's place. Short Uber ride from town, lots of privacy and a cute and cosy place to stay!

I stayed for one night at this apartment. The communication was good. Top location. Apartment itself was ok. Bathroom needs an update but was clean. Bed and a/c making lots of noises.

Matt and Kimble are the model AirBnB hosts. Exceptional communication and organization, they are thoughtful and welcoming hosts and their place is a gem. The guesthouse is quaint and well-appointed, in a gorgeous neighbourhood. We wanted for nothing, and every aspect of our stay was a breeze. Thank you so much for being so awesome, Matt & Kimble!

The Carriage House is a wonderful home away from home. The location couldn't be better. It's in a quiet neighborhood that's close to Downtown and plenty of other spots in Midtown. Matt and Kimble provided excellent instructions about check in beforehand. My boyfriend and I had difficulty getting to the key (not their fault), but we knocked on the back door, and they were more than willing to help and give us a tour of the place. I have lived in Memphis before so I didn't need any recommendations, but Kimble was more than willing to give any advice on great places to visit or eat. Matt and Kimble even offered tickets they weren't going to use to see an Elvis impersonator! What host does that? My boyfriend and I are looking at moving to Memphis next year, but if we don't, we will definitely be booking The Carriage House again.

Matt And Kimble User ProfileMatt And Kimble is a superhost.

We love traveling but are always, always glad to come back to Memphis. It won't take you long to see why we love living in this city. I work for the Memphis Grizzlies and my husband is a finish carpenter, old home remodeler and sings in a couple of bands. I am a water baby, a basketball freak, love camping, music, old houses, and the big, wonderful family of friends we have found in our beloved midtown.
