Interaction with Guests
Although we are often very busy, we love entertaining, having travelers and imparting our knowledge of the hidden and awesome spots in Memphis to travelers.

We also respect the privacy of our guests and are sure to be considerate of their travel vibe. :-)

*We are what we repeatedly do*
We loved Jillian and Daniel's place! It was clean, comfortable, and very well furnished with all the towels and kitchen equipment we needed. The location of their place was awesome - literally a 7 minute walk from a ton of restaurants and shops. While we didn't meet Jillian and Daniel, their summer roommate was able to answer any questions we had about the house. We loved their garden and chickens too!
Dan & Jill have a great looking home located in a quiet neighbourhood. Beale St and Sun Studio are only a 10-minute car drive or 15-minute bike ride away and there's a Central BBQ about 10 minute walking from their house. Plenty of parking space, they have super fast internet and a very pat-friendly cat. Dan & Jill are an energetic couple and are happy to come up with some suggestions.
Everything was as listed! The neighborhood was great, as a prospective memphis resident, I think I've found where I want to move!
