About this listing
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.
From Dec 01, 2015 - Feb 28, 2016 the minimum stay is 3 nights.
Corky was awesome and his place was fantastic! He was easy to communicate with prior to our arrival and gave us detailed instructions for the house. He also responded quickly to any queries we had during our stay. The house itself was brilliant. Good space for 4 of us and the beds were extremely comfy. The place was in a nice, quiet part of town but was only a short walk to Beale Street. Fantastic stay, would definitely recommend!
Just as advertised ...I strongly recommend Corky's. It was a home away from home with the right location and very good price. We will be sure to come back for Elvis Week next year.
The apartment was perfect for what we needed. The place was very clean and had everything we could want. We didn't spend a lot of time in the apartment but when we were there we felt very comfortable. Very walkable to Beale St. is a big plus. Also some of the best fried chicken I've ever had right around the corner. Couldn't ask for much more.
One of the easiest check-in/check-out process to date!
Everything in the apartment was as described. I enjoyed the location being walkable to Beale Street but not so close that I had to endure the nightly loud music and crowds.
There are also a few great local restaurants within 60 seconds of walking from the apartment and a few minutes walk to tasty (but fattening!) breakfasts at The Arcade Restaurant. The Arcade is kinda run down and not all the servers are friendly but I did enjoy the food and the walk there each morning.
The proximity to the Civil Rights Museum to this apartment was a bonus.
Corky was also easily reachable and responsive to the questions I had before and during my stay.
I'd stay here again next time I am in Memphis for business or pleasure.
Fantastic location, we have enjoyed the convenience of being able to walk to Beale Street to listen to the music, see the bikes on Wednesday and visit the museums, We really appreciated the selection of local beers as it gave us a clue as to what to order in the bars! We found the hospitality at the Green Beetle Bar wonderful, we did two Monday night Steak Nights meal and would highly recommend it to anyone especially as it is only two or three minutes walk away! The condo had everything we needed, even for a longish stay. There was plenty of information about the local attractions and an extremely welcome local map. Should be lucky enough to return to Memphis we will definitely looking you up.
Corky was great! As was his place. Clean, convenient, and comfortable. I would definitely stay there again.
