Be kind to our cat, Feral. She is super friendly.
This is our home, we are people who love people, so bring the positive energy, leave the negative behind!

Daniel and Jillian were great hosts! Their Memphis neighborhood is charming. I spent my first evening chatting with Jillian on the front porch swing enjoying the spring weather. The bed was super comfy too, something I always worry about when traveling. This was a very positive experience with a great couple in a beautiful home!
Jillian, Daniel (and their cat Ferral) offered comfortable, friendly Memphis hospitality. It was nice to put a few items in the fridge and freezer. Next time in Memphis we will try to stay here. Their description and the previous positive reviews are all accurate. Thank you!!
We had a lovely time staying at Daniel and Jillian's! The proximity to Central BBQ proved essential, and the entire Cooper-Young area was exactly the kind of neighborhood we hoped to fall into in Memphis. Thanks guys!
We arrived in the snow and ice to a very beautiful, comfortable house with a fire crackling in the living room! We only met Jillian during our stay, she was very friendly, chatty and gave good recommendations of places to eat and drink. The room was an excellent size, comfortable and clean. Nearby Cooper street was fun to explore with good places to eat, and the city centre was only a few miles away. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this listing, thanks again!
Daniel and Jillian were great! Very friendly and welcoming, and they made our short stay very pleasant. They also recommended some great places where to go out, which was very helpful since we did not know our way around the city. The room was cozy, and we especially liked the fireplace and the piano in the living room :)
Last night was an excellent experience! Jillian is very nice and the little kitty Feral was so friendly and cute!
Daniel and Jullian were exuberant hosts, and kind enough to take a little time from their full schedules to answer our questions and point us in the right direction. Their home is amazing and their neighborhood is a vintage treasure! We enjoyed our all to brief stay.
Daniel and Maria
