Interaction with guests
Though we are busy ourselves with dental school and work, we very much enjoy getting to know our guests. Our dogs, Bentley and Luna, love to interact with guests, but we will give as much space as our guests desire.
Our neighborhood, although quiet and quaint, is always teeming with folks walking their dogs, families biking the streets, or friends catching up on their front lawn. We are situated two blocks from the popular Greenline trail where you can walk, run, bike, roller blade, or whatever activity you prefer. We are also a half mile from a neighborhood grocer, pizza place, sandwich shop, and local pub. A short 10 minute drive will get you to the popular midtown area that is full of bars, hip restaurants, and unique shopping. If the nightlife and fabulous restaurants of downtown is more your scene, we are only 15 minutes away from there as well. Have the best of both worlds with a safe, quiet neighborhood that's 15 minutes from everything (including the airport).
If you don't have a car yourself, taxis* are the easiest way to get around. If you make it downtown there is a trolley line that runs through the heart of the downtown area.
Sam Cooper Blvd. is very close allowing for quick access to the Memphis area. Otherwise, let us know and we can try to help you out with a ride as our schedule permits.
*If you don't have a car, we recommend Uber or Lyft (you know, staying with the sharing economy theme...)

Hello! We are Jeff, Julie, Bentley (woof) and Luna (woof).
We are 29 year olds who love Memphis! Julie, born and raised in Memphis, works full time for a family business where she is lucky enough to bring her pups, Bentley and Luna, to work every day. She also works part time at a local cycle gym called Cyclebar. Jeff, a native Nashvillian, is a full time student in dental school at the UT Health Science Center. Between the two of them, they can recommend the best restaurants, museums, parks, coffee shops, BBQ joints, attractions, YOU NAME IT, that Memphis has to offer.
They are travel junkies! During college, Julie spend a semester in Granada, Spain and got to see all the amazing things Spain and other parts of Europe have to offer. She loved it so much, she and Jeff went back to Europe for a month over Christmas in 2013! They are also outdoorsy people who always prefer to be outside. Jeff spent 4 months hiking the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine after undergraduate school. Overall, he has visited 41 states. Julie needs to catch up!
Some of their other interests include: DIY projects around the house, frequenting the dog park, brunch, maps, antique furniture, music, documentaries, but mostly we enjoy being together, being active, and eating good food to make up for it!
Our favorite part about hosting is getting to know new people. We have been a part of the Airbnb community for 3 years and have enjoyed every minute of it! We love our home and think you will too! Hope we get the opportunity to host you.
