About this listing
Over 600 square feet of 100% private space in a brand new apartment in heart of East Nashville / Lockeland Springs. Full kitchen & laundry room just for you. We live next door so we will be available if you need anything.
Over 600 square feet of 100% private space in heart of East Nashville / Lockeland Springs. We built this loft specifically for the perfect Airbnb experience! Great couch in living room that folds out into a full size bed. The guest apartment has it's own HVAC thermostat, so feel free to adjust the temperature to your convenience.
We spent 6 months planning and building this space to create the ideal Airbnb retreat. It starts with a private off-street parking space. A freshly poured walkway leads you past our house to the rear of the property to the detached guest loft. Motion detection overhead lights as well as lighted stairs ensure a safe late night arrival. A keyless door code on your entry door lets you self-check in late without worrying about disturbing us. A bright foyer greets you with a Guest Book to sign and a map for you to add a pin of your hometown.
Up the stairs with ornate wainscoting and Nashville posters you'll find a wide open floor plan with soaring vaulted ceilings, recessed lighting, natural light everywhere, and of course your very own full kitchen with brand new shaker style cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. This setup is perfect for longer stays. We have plenty of entertainment options in the living room: DVD player, HD tv, Apple TV, and Comcast tv and high speed Internet with a dedicated network specifically for our guests.
In the living room is a new full size memory foam sleeper sofa, and a nicely stocked mini bar for our guests - no trip to Nashville is complete with a sip (or two) of Jack Daniels on the house!
The kitchen is nicely stocked with dishes, cups, utensils, pots and pans. There is a Keurig with K-Cups to shake off the morning cobwebs.
The bedroom has a pocket door and brand new queen size bed with a super comfortable brand new mattress. We made sure to install plenty of outlets by the night stands for your electronics. The two large overhead windows flood the bedroom with light.
Right off of the bedroom is a laundry room with full size washer and dryer for our guests - feel free to use them! And the bathroom has a beautiful tile shower, 36" marble vanity, custom shelving stocked with fresh towels and all the amenities you might need while traveling.
We've worked really hard to try to think of all the things you might need whether you need a quick last minute overnight stay or if you're staying for a week (or even a few months!)
Here's a list of goodies:
Extra toothbrush if you forgot yours
High speed WiFi (with your own separate and private network)
Apple TV with HBO/Netflix/Hulu Plus/ESPN
39" 1080p flatscreen HDTV
Coffee and Tea Station
Assorted snacks (Granola / Nutri-Grain bars etc)
Umbrella for rainy days
Iron and ironing board
Walk to coffee shops, restaurants, bars, etc. Very quiet, peaceful and safe neighborhood, but only 2.8 miles from downtown! About 4-5 blocks to 5 Points, and only 3 blocks to one of Nashville's best kept secrets - Lockeland Table! Very close to: Rosepepper Cantina, Two Ten Jack, Jeni's Ice Cream, Holland House, The Pharmacy
While this house is GREAT, the odds are you will book this guest space because of the area.
This is a detached 100% private loft on the rear of our property that we painstakingly designed and built for the perfect Airbnb experience. There is absolutely no sharing of any spaces, every picture you see is specifically for our guests, this apartment is yours and yours alone!
Interaction with guests
By default, we will leave you alone! You can text us if you have any questions or requests. We love people, but we always assume that guests want maximum privacy. If the guest wants to come have coffee with us, they're more than welcome! But we will be just a text/call/knock away if you need extra sheets, towels, restaurant recommendations, ANYTHING at all!
Our neighborhood is very walker friendly - the sidewalks are filled with joggers and families walking their dogs on nice afternoons! It is mainly filled with older renovated homes, mainly from the 1890's to 1930's. Filled with mature trees and friendly people!
Lockeland Springs might be the best overall neighborhood in Nashville. Very safe, clean, close to downtown, and walking distance to dozens of restaurants, bars, and shops!
A bus does drive right by our house, but if you need to get outside of the neighborhood, it's always easier to drive. But there's so much to do within walking distance you won't need to leave! (If you aren't renting a car, we are more than happy to give you a lift downtown if we're free, evenings and/or weekends usually!)
Other things to note
We have now been AirBNB hosts for over 2 1/2 years, and this has been an amazing experience to put it mildly. What started out as an experiment of sorts has turned one of the most rewarding experiences we could have imagined. We have met some of the nicest, most interesting people from 30 minutes away to some far reaches of the world. We have become somewhat of 'last minute specialists' having accomodated some guests on 1 hour notice or less.
International guests? Check. We are avid travelers ourselves, and know firsthand how stressful it can be navigating a foreign country with different languages, cell phones, food, driving laws, cultures etc. We will help take that stress away!
Whether you're coming to Nashville for the food or the hospitality; for the music or the people; for business or holiday; for relaxation or night life - we can't wait to meet you!
Unfortunately, we can't accommodate animals in the Airbnb space. We do have a dog and 2 cats that live in our house completely separate from the guest space.
Please, no smoking inside.

David is a Consultant, Cindy is a Social Worker. We discovered Airbnb in 2014 when we were trying to decide how to fund our travel addiction. We became hosts before we became guests and have found that we love being both. This is the best way to discover a location and experience the culture.
As a host, we will give you the amount of privacy you desire. We love interacting with guests but understand the need for privacy. We want you to feel welcome and comfortable in our space. We also understand the stressors of travel and will be more than happy to assist with any needs that may arise during your stay.
