Come and go as you please. Beautiful new 300 Sq.Ft. studio apartment located behind my home is just minutes to downtown Nashville, Bicentennial Mall, Farmers Market, and Germantown restaurants. Public transportation bus stop just down the street. I am a General Contractor and have built my home and 2 others in this super convenient up and coming historical neighborhood. Feel free to use the patio area to take a break!


And yes the neighborhood is in transition. I have built 3 new houses on this street and a 4th one just a few blocks over. I Iived in the main house for 2.5 years before moving into the 4th house a few blocks away. There is also more new construction being built on the street. Two luxury townhouses built across the street and down a few doors have sold last year, and 4 new high end townhouse were just finished and listed this month!! The church on the corner between my house and these 4 new townhouses just bought the 3 older homes between my house and the church. I am working with the church to get these houses torn down....hopefully this year!
UPDATE!! Those houses are gone! And 2 more houses are getting totally rehabbed!!

Recent Review by Chyna describing the main house and neighborhood:
What a beautiful and quiet house! This is new construction in a historic district, so it has the character and charm of a home that is much older with the amenities and cleanliness of a brand new property. My only regret is that we were so busy that we didn't get to spend much time in the house. The beds were very comfortable (MUCH better than the typical hotel bed), the kitchen was gorgeous and stocked with water, soda, coffee, hot chocolate, etc, there's a great walk-in closet in the master bedroom plus a large soaking tub in the master bath. The layout was perfect for a family or two couples, as the bedrooms each have their own bathroom and are situated on opposite sides of the house for maximum privacy. We didn't get to use the courtyard, but it is very charming, with a grill and nice deck/patio area. The neighborhood is close to everything - only about five minutes from downtown and 10 or so from Opry Mills, the Grand Ole Opry, etc. It is a transitional area so some of the houses in the neighborhood are run down - it's only a matter of time before they'll be snapped up and restored, but people who aren't used to staying in neighborhoods like this might be caught off guard. That being said, it was very quiet and safe and I had no concerns being there with my family. Rick was very responsive and wonderful to deal with, and you could tell how much he loves this house. He built it himself and only recently moved out, and it has been well-cared for. The decor is very tasteful with plenty of art, comfortable furniture, televisions in the living room and both bedrooms. This was our first AirBnB experience and it couldn't have been better!

I'm just a few blocks over...give me a shout if you need anything!!

Getting around

If you don't have a car I suggest downloading the LYFT or Uber application to your smartphone. This is definitely the best and cheapest way to get around the city by auto. It's about a $7 ride to the downtown entertainment district! Or you could walk (app 15 mins) to the Farmers Market and Bicentennial Mall State Park area. There you can rent bikes or catch the free downtown bus loop (Music City Circuit) that runs from 6 am till 6 pm at 7th and Harrison.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We used this studio as our honeymoon suite for our wedding in Nashville recently. It was everything as advertised and very nice. The location is very convenient and the neighborhood is easily accessible. Within the unit, the large closet was great for hanging our formal attire while the space was large enough for each of us to do our preparations. We would definitely recommend it and stay hear again ourselves.

  • We enjoyed our stay at Rick's Studio. Great location & pictures were very accurate of the room. The parking & entry were private so no disturbing the guest in the main house. We loved the Farmer's Market that Rick recommended close by!

    July 2014
  • What a charming and clever use of a garage! This host made excellent use of a space with lots of design touches such as incorporating a luggage rack into the closet. It had everything you might need including off street parking with easy access to the cottage. Keeping this in mind for our next trip to Nashville.

  • We had a lovely stay in this studio apartment. It was great to be able to come and go as we pleased. Very affordable and private. The patio was we landscaped and welcoming.

    June 2014
  • The studio was very clean with everything we needed. It was super easy and smooth checking in and out. The parking in the back was nice and convenient. Overall, it was a wonderful place to stay and will be staying there again when we return to Nashville!

  • Rick was extremely accommodating and attentive. He always responded to my emails within the hour and allowed us to leave our bags in the studio early so we didn't have to carry them around. The location is nice, a quiet neighborhood without much in the way of bars or coffee shops, however it is only a $6 cab ride from Broadway where all the bars/restaurants downtown are. Or you can take the bus but you will most likely end up having to transfer at least once. The place was very tidy, the perfect size for two people. Exactly as pictured here.

    If you stay here you must walk to Monell's for breakfast or dinner, it is about a 10 minute walk and the food is amazing!

    I would recommend staying here if you don't need to be in the heart of downtown Nashville!

    June 2014
  • Great location and great studio apt! Perfect for two people! We definitely recommend using LYFT to get around. It was very easy and pretty cheap. Great overall experience!

    June 2014
  • What an amazing place, exactly as described, the pictures are just a taste of what you find in Ricks lovely studio. Rick was around to help out when things went wrong, even gave me a lift to Wallmart to buy a new phone when I lost mine in a taxi. What a great guy, lovely place, the bed was super comfortable and aircon helped keep us cool in the Nashville Summer! Now there's a new super comfy sofa in place of the chairs to make it even more cosy and if you visit in Summer, watch outside for the firefly display in the yard around dusk....

  • Loved this private studio! Great location--within walking distance of Bcycle, grocery store, fun Germantown restaurants, Nashville Farmer's Market. Was in excellent condition, very clean, beautiful garden. Rick was very easy to work with. This was my husband and my first Airbnb experience and if we are ever back in Nashville we will certainly try to stay here again.

    June 2014

I know your not coming to Nashville to visit me, but i will do my best to provide a great place to stay while you are in Nashville! I am a single Dad with 2 great kids off to college! I built this home 3 years ago and love living near downtown Nashville. I am an avid walker and most weeks put in 15 to 20 miles just walking from my home to the Historical Germantown area, Bicentennial Mall State Park, Farmers Market, State Capital, Legislative Plaza, TPAC, then on to Lower Broad, 2nd Ave, and Riverfront park where all the honky tonks are located! That total distance is just a little over 2 miles each way. I was in the USAF and Tennessee Air Guard for 13 years where i was a navigator on C-130's. After my military life i became a General Contractor and started my own business. After being in the country for so long i decided to try the city life. I bought a vacant lot in this historical overlay district and loved it. Since then I have built 2 more homes on this street. I do love this up and coming neighborhood. I also love to hike the mountains! I have summed 3 12,000 foot peaks in the Rockies and last summer my son and I summed 14,254 foot Long's Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park. I must admit - it kicked my ass ... but wow!... what a view! Leaves no doubt there is a God! I also love to kayak and travel. But the best times are with the kids. We love to play strategy board games..Settlers of Catan, Acquire, and Cashflow. I love Axis and Allies, but its hard to get them to play that! I also play in a Texas holdem Poker League...for points...not for cash! UPDATE: That's my first grandbaby...Walt....Born 19 November 2012!!
