I had lovely stay at Dan and Jillian's house. I could not pick a better location.
The perfect place to stay in Memphis! A beautiful home and the kindest hosts. I would recommend to anyone visiting Memphis!!
Daniel and Jillian were fantastic hosts! Genuine and kind with a cozy, comfortable home, and beautiful calico cat, Feral.
We didn't get the chance to hang with the chickens or try out the hammock, but that's all the more reason to re-visit Memphis.
Thanks so much, guys!
What a warm environment and engaging hosts! I stayed with Jill and Dan while scouting out Memphis with a possible relocation in mind. They were kind and fun to talk with, and Dan was helpful on several occasions when I would otherwise have been hoofing it in the cold. Their guest room is super comfortable, and the house as a whole has a warm and inviting atmosphere. Looking forward to getting to know these guys more as a fellow Memphian!
Dan and Jill were such fantastic airbnb hosts. They have an amazing house and are just so sweet. They had great memphis recommendations and also it was great to have bikes. Their neighbourhood is so fun and filled with such delicious restaurants and bars that you won't want to leave. Thanks so much Dan and Jill + Feral
Dan & Jill made us feel right at home in their super cozy house! The house was beautiful. Their cat, Feral, was incredibly affectionate and followed us everywhere. We had a great time with her! Staying at their house was a totally unique experience. Dan and Jill are the perfect hosts (even though they were out of town during our stay). The whole house is open for guests to use (kitchen, piano, fireplace, living room, sweet backyard w/ chickens included, etc.) Overall, we truly enjoyed our stay and recommend staying with Dan and Jill for anyone looking for a place in Memphis!
This place is great! Dan and Jill have a very comfortable, interesting home in a great neighborhood. We loved playing with Feral the sweetest cat ever and watching the (quiet!) chickens roam the backyard. Post it notes explain all you need to know navigating the house (including how to turn on the fireplace...) in case they aren't home when you need something. They also have a great and specific binder full of detailed advice on how to get the most out of a short memphis trip. Dan and Jill clearly put a lot of care into what they do and we highly recommend staying with them.
It was a privilege to stay with Dan and Jill, who are funny, engaging and community-minded. They kindly let me join in on a group dinner they hosted and gave me some insider tips to make the most of my stay in Memphis.
Daniel and Jill were wonderful hosts. Their home is clean, warm and cozy. The room was great and the bed comfortable. They have a super friendly cat and we got to enjoy their fireplace a bit. Great exoerience, highly recommended.
Excellent location and very accomodating!
