The condo is on the second floor and only accessible by stairs. You will have the place all to yourself with a fully stocked kitchen, cable TV, streaming Netflix, a queen size bed in the bedroom and a queen size sofa bed in the living room. There is a washer and dryer and full bathroom as well. There is one assigned parking space in the gated/pin code accessible parking lot in the condo complex.
There are not currently many options for groceries or convenience store items in the area. City Market is 0.6 miles walk down Main Street. Kroger is 3.6 miles away and Fresh Market is 4.4 miles away. I recommend planning your grocery pick up in advance.
Typically, I rent the condo for two night minimums if it includes a Friday or Saturday night. For example, if you rent a Friday night then you must either rent Thursday or Saturday night too. Same goes for Saturday night. Any other week night is typically one night minimum depending on if it is a holiday weekend or special event in Memphis. This is at my discretion and if it is last minute and the house is still available that weekend, check with me for one night rentals.
Note there is only 1 queen size bed and 1 queen size sofa bed. Also, I have a single/twin rollaway bed. However I get requests for groups of 6 or 8 sometimes and those groups are willing to sleep on rollaway beds or couches or air mattresses. So I list that I can accommodate that many.
Guests have full access to the condo. There is wifi, Netflix, cable TV, full kitchen, and a washer and dryer.
If you have time, I am always up for meeting for a drink or dinner.
Very safe area to walk day and night. 1 bedroom and 1 bath condo in South Main Arts District! Walk to the trolley line that takes you to Beale St. and other downtown Memphis locations. Walk to Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken or the Memphis Farmers Market on Saturday mornings. Eat at the Arcade Restaurant where Elvis was a regular and scenes from The Firm, The Client, and Walk the Line were filmed. The National Civil Rights Museum is just three blocks away.
Other restaurants in the area are The Blue Monkey, Central BBQ, Happy Mexican, Rizzo's Diner (famous Lobster Pronto Pups), Cheesecake Corner, Bluff City Coffee, Pearl's Oyster House, and Spaghetti Warehouse. Oh yeah and Gus's!
There is a trolley line just a block away on Main Street and a city bus line and taxi cabs. The Amtrak station is just a few blocks away and the Megabus arrives nearby.
Keep the condo clean. Be respectful of other condo residents especially during late night hours. The condo has a wooden floor so be mindful of the residents in the condo below me especially with boots or heels or anything that might sound loud on the wood floor.
There is only one assigned parking space for my condo. If you bring a second car, you will have to park it on the nearby streets. Please don't discuss my vacation/short-term rentals with anyone you may encounter in the condo complex. Short-term rentals are actually a new concept in Memphis and various hosts are working together to make it more acceptable but we'd rather be the ones presenting it. Just tell other building tenants you are friends.
A terrific experience from start to finish. The condo was the perfect size for our 3 adult group but could easily accommodate 4 adults. We found everything we needed plus the local beer and coffee were quite the extra bonus. The location was great for both Beale St and many of the attractions south of Beale. Corky was a perfect host, we'll be back!

Staying in Corky's apartment was great! The apartment was cozy and felt like home -- complete with everything we needed for our 3 night stay. This was our first trip to Memphis and the location made it easy to explore and enjoy everything we wanted to see in the city! Being so close to Beale Street made our evenings relaxed and stress-free, and it was interesting to walk around South Main on our way back and forth. We even got to check out a Grizzlie's game the first night we arrived (also in walking distance). No complaints, everything was great!
We enjoyed our stay at Corky's place! It was great to have a kitchen where we could make some of our meals and the apartment had everything we needed. It was great being able to walk to so many restaurants and historic sites. We would definitely recommend to a friend!
We loved this place - although not fancy it had everything we needed. We definitely felt at home.
Although we didn't meet Corky, he responded almost immediately to any communication. It was easy to get to the location from the airport and to get in the apartment.
The bed is comfortable as is the living room. The complementary coffee was very welcome. The kitchen is well equipped so if you want to do some cooking you can. It was also great to have a washer and dryer.
I would certainly return to this apartment if we visit Memphis again.
Corky couldn't have been more helpful in making our experience easy. We never met him face to face but he provided very clear instructions and there was a really handy binder with tons of information. The apartment was very clean and nicely appointed. And the location was convenient to all of the attractions of Memphis.
This one-bedroom condo comes with everything you need for a fantastic stay in downtown Memphis. Fully equipped kitchen, nice bathroom with all amenities, washer/dryer. Our group of 3 felt very comfortable as the condo is even more spacious than the photos indicate. Check in was easy, and Corky responded to all texts immediately. Loved the added touch of coffee and beer! A great value- highly recommend!
