Recent Review by Chyna:
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!
REVIEW FROM STEPHEN G. JAN 2013
We loved this place. We were in town for an event taking place downtown. Compared to the cost of hotels in the area, there is just no way you can pass up a deal like this. The home is beautifully designed and furnished with a gorgeous kitchen. There is a nice TV with at least basic cable in the living room and the Master bedroom. We also had access to wifi. The bedrooms were more than ample for us. We loved the bathroom and big closet off of the master bedroom. (Give the on demand hot water heater a minute to warm up and you'll have lots of nice hot water - you can reflect on the fact that you're using such an energy-efficient system while you wait.) We also took advantage of the washer and dryer. The entire house was clean and very comfortable. Though we never got to meet Rick in person, he was very quick to communicate via text or email. He left Pepsis and water in the fridge for us. The location of the home is very convenient to downtown - you can see the skyline down the street. It only takes a minute or two to be right at the farmers market by the state capitol building (and there's a grocery store on the way). Taxi fares downtown were less than $10 even on a weekend night. If you aren't used to "transitional neighborhoods" you might feel like you've taken a wrong turn once you're near Arthur street, but we felt quite safe in the area around the house. The area in front of the house is well lit and we enjoyed the off-street parking. The neighbor on one side of the house was really nice. Oreo the dog gave us some suspicious barks, but was nothing to worry about. The other structure next door seems to be a boarded up day care... which means there were no loud kids playing outside! There seemed to be a nice couple living in a little house at the back of the courtyard. They were quiet and we never had a chance to interact with them. All in all the experience was excellent and the price was really extraordinary for what you get - proximity to downtown in a beautifully appointed private townhouse in a "transitional" but apparently relatively safe neighborhood. We would love to return and will highly recommend it to others.
Response from Rick: Thanks for the great review...the church on the corner just bought that day care next door to (URL HIDDEN) now they own everything in between my house and the church. I'm working with them to get that torn down. And yes....that is Miss Margaret that lives next door..sweetest little grandmother around! She would always make me a meal whenever she had her family together! ..and Oreo wouldn't hurt a thing. The studio out back is rented on Airbnb separately and has its own entrance thru the back patio area. I do love this neighborhood. It is up and coming as you can tell from the 4 new luxury townhouses being built just past the church and the 2 newly finished ones across the street. This is the 3rd house that i have built on this street. I sold the other 2 and lived in this house until July of last year, when i moved into my new house which is only a few blocks away. Once again, I'm glad you enjoyed the home, sorry i missed you!
Check out this video of the area:
UPDATE June 2014: The homes 2 doors down has jsut undergone a complete renovation!!..and the house 3 doors down is in the process of renovation!! On the other side 3 more houses have been torn down and the lots cleaned up. Not sure whats going in there..but i suspect condo's or something as the area is bursting with new construction and renovations!!! Looking great!
Entire house and patio.
Interaction with guests
With the front door code locks installed you are free to arrive at anytime after check-in without me having to meet you, But i am just a few blocks away if you need anything!
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.
Other things to note
Check in is anytime after 4PM. Check out is by 11 AM. If you need in earlier, let me know. Please text me at checkout so i can let the maid know. She likes to start as early as possible.

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!!
