Incredible historic neighborhood. Very zen environs and set dressings make this an interesting peaceful place to stay with quiet spacious haunts throughout the home.
large 30's house off of historic west end. 5 minutes from downtown. easier to get to than most hotels. community minded people who enjoy travelers. main living space is common. large grand piano and wonderfully cozy vibey kitchen. house is right next to the greenway and beautiful sidewalks in the historic home district. there is nothing posh here so if you're looking for that please book elsewhere. the charm and warmth of this is that it is not without its eccentricities and fun foibles. We like it that way. come if you like vibe and are kind.
Wi-fi, netflix, kitchen, bath, linens, laundry, den, outdoor patio, living room, piano, record player.
Interaction with Guests
I love having guests. I like to follow their lead. If they have down time and would like to hang, I always enjoy the time. If not, that's ok too.
Oldest historic neighborhood in Nashville. !938 structure. House is vibey and cool. AGAIN, there is nothing posh here so if you're looking for that please book elsewhere. The charm and warmth of this is that it is not without its eccentricities and fun foibles. We are artists. Every room is a creative workspace. We like it that way. Come if you like vibe and are kind.
Bus stop right out the front door. Rent a car or Taxi or i can drive. Plenty of on site parking.
Other Things to Note
I love to make breakfast. Please request the day before and what time, and i'd be glad to make you something wonderful.
PLEASE READ GENTLY AND FOLLOW DILIGENTLY:
House rules are meant to protect the environment of the people staying here including you. Please respect and adhere closely.
10 to 10 are the Quiet hours. If you come in late, come in quietly. You'll want to say hello to the dogs when you come in. Not kidding.
No overnight guests who have not booked or been pre-approved. This is not a party house, it's a place of rest and warmth and love and kindness with intentional efforts made at keeping the energy peaceful. Please respect this and come be a part of it.
If you stay the night out elsewhere, please communicate with me. Coming in at 4am is NOT acceptable behavior.
My refund policy is moderate but that does not mean i will refund you if you come to my house and make a fool of yourself.
Last minute bookings must sign an electronic waver stating they will not give negative review based on readiness of the environment. In other words, don't come last minute expecting 5 STAR environs. There may be dishes to be washed and the maid might not have come to clean the basin. We are accommodating you. Respect that and be gracious.
i don't guarantee satisfaction. i do guarantee warmth and love and acceptance. if you're rude, we can visit about it and perhaps i can help. if you persist, i will THROW you out. read my (website hidden) page and my reviews and see that i am kind. but if you insult me or my people or my house, know that i am fiercely loyal. still, please forgive it. i ONLY add this house rule from experience.
i no longer accept "all-comers." i do however do my best to get a vibe on people and see if they are a fit for this house:
I WILL NO LONGER ACCEPT RESERVATIONS FROM PEOPLE WITHOUT REVIEWS, BACKGROUNDS, (website hidden) PAGES, AND OR SOME WAY TO KNOW WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU STAND FOR. I DO ACCEPT KIND EMAILS IN EARNEST, EXPLAINING WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU'RE ABOUT, THAT IS, IF YOU LACK REVIEWS.
ENTITLED PEOPLE, AND SNOBS ARE NOT ALLOWED.
this is not a hotel. clean up after yourself.
USE DESIGNATED COASTERS. YOU WILL BE CHARGED FOR WATER DAMAGED TO FURNITURE.
AND with that, my apologies to the innocent, we really do
look forward to you being here! :)
Josh and his father were super nice, southern hospitality at its finest. It was a great location, close to everything I needed to attend. I would welcome the opportunity to stay there again. I was going and going during my stay, but one afternoon I had free time, I came in and took a two hour nap, I never knew others were in the house. All in all I give them a galaxy worth of stars!
Josh's place was great. He went the extra mile and made to space as comfortable as possible. I was working nights and sleeping days. He made some additional adjustments to the room the facilitate the best daytime sleep possible. He was so pleasant to speak with in the brief moments we had in passing. He also offered to make breakfast, but I declined even after reading the prior rave reviews. I really loved the energy of the home, everything was calm and peaceful. The actual house had a wonderful charm. The animals were quiet and un intrusive and the neighborhood was beautiful. Although there were no real doors to the room I stayed in, only dividing curtains, he was a perfect gentleman in keeping my privacy and personal space. Parking was curbside. Josh even assisted me in getting my suv in just the right spot. ( My backing skills leave something to be desired lol) I will keep him in mind anytime I have a need in the area.
My best friend and I were in Nashville to celebrate New Years and ended up spending the majority of the time relaxing at Josh's place! It was truly such a warm, welcoming environment and Josh was so friendly and accommodating! He went above and beyond to help with anything we needed and made sure we were comfortable. His home is peaceful and serene. So much so that I slept better there than I do at home. Josh also gave us all kinds of advice about area, whether it be where to have fun, get exercise, or buy organic produce. It's also a great location within a few minutes of downtown. All around it was a perfect stay and I will definitely be visiting his place again!
It was an incredible experience staying in Josh's piece of paradise. He made me feel completely welcome from the moment I stepped into his yard. His furry family, Momma and Buddy, happily greeted me and I instantly felt like family. The room and bed is amazingly comfortable and every detail is taken into consideration in making his guests feel safe and comfortable. I encourage everyone to take advantage of this honor and privilege of staying in the Best location in Nashville's West End. It truly is the best and his breakfast - eggs and spinach are the most succulent I've ever tasted. AWESOME!! Thank you Joshua! You and your home are a gift.
For my 2nd experience with AIRBnB, I couldn't have dreamed of a more safe, comforting, and accommodating place and people. Joshua and his friends - 4 legged and 2 legged alike - were welcoming and warm. They gave me privacy and interaction. What a way to travel!!!
Joahua was very prompt in his replies. The listing was exactly like I had expected. It was listed as a couch, and indeed it was a couch. The house was very nice, and in a cool neighborhood. I was attending Vanderbilt and the location was ideal. The others in the house were really nice, and a pleasure to meet. It was a perfect fit. Everything went really smoothly.
I could not possibly have had a better experience staying with Joshua. Besides the fabulous central location off West End and the extremely reasonable prices, Joshua's hospitality was absolutely next to none. He included a wonderful home cooked meal and I met some delightful people, as well. His home is unique, clean, well maintained, comfortable, and welcoming. I cannot recommend the experience highly enough and would pick this place over anywhere else on Air B&B in Nashville. Joshua as a person is truly a wonderful person, too. He is kind and wise and is very flexible. He makes a mean breakfast (ask for eggs!), has wonderful taste in music (and also two gorgeous pianos), a great sense of humor, and am delighted to say my experience there was more than I could have imagined. Trust me, choose this location!
