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.
Perfect location for visiting Memphis. Beale Street, Civil Rights Museum, Gus' world famous fried chicken all within 5minutes walk. Apartment was well presented with added bonus of some cold local beers waiting in the fridge and Netflix on the TV! Highly recommend this apartment for anyone visiting Memphis.
My first AirBNB couldn't have been better. Corky's place was awesome! The condo was very clean with cold beer and fresh coffee (I'm now hooked on J Brook's). The location couldn't have been any better. Just a short walk to downtown. Also, you can get on the trolley about half a block away; fee is $1 and takes about 1 min to get to downtown. This came in handy when leaving Beale Street late a night. I would highly recommend staying here.
I have to echo most of everyone's feedback and reviews! Corky does everything possible to make you right at home. He has beer on the fridge-which gives you a good idea what to (email hidden).
Corky knows what he is doing and planning, from coffee,coffee filters, shampoo, clean towels, iron and ironing board, menus, restaurant and bar recommendations. Everything has been well planned and thought.
Corky has set the standard high for my future Airbnb reservations!
Can't wait to come back to Memphis and staying at Corky's place.
Everyone was as exactly described! Corky did a wonderful job of making as comfortable as possible. This was our second stay with one of Corky's condos and he did again did not disappoint. I thank him immensely for our positive experience.
We had an awesome stay here! The condo is very comfortable, and we felt very safe. Before our arrival Corky sent us detailed information. The condo is in a gated community, in the heart of Memphis. We were within 3-4 blocks of Beale Street, Central BBQ, The Arcade, Civil Rights Museum, Peabody Hotel, Orpheum Theater and many more. We used our car to go to Graceland, some shopping, and tour around the Cooper-Young district in Midtown. I would defiantly stay here again!
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!
