About this listing
We invite you to come and stay in our beautiful, clean home, on a quiet street. Friendly hosts. Easy access to all parts of Memphis. Private bathroom. Light breakfast. Max. 3 people (in 2 rooms). You'll sleep very well here.
We can accommodate up to three guests traveling together, and we have two separate rooms. One of the rooms has a comfortable queen-sized bed with a good quality (firm) mattress, and freshly ironed cotton sheets. There's space for clothing in the dresser drawers and closet. The other room is just as big, but has a twin bed, and does not have any storage space, except the table where you can put your suitcase. The beautiful full bathroom is right next door, and you'll have it all to yourself (towels, shampoo, soap are of course provided). It has been completed renovated in July 2015.
No other guests will be here during your stay. Please note that this is a two-story house, and the bedrooms and bathroom are all upstairs. It's our home and we live here too.
The basic price is for one or two people using the larger bed. If there is a third person, there is a small extra charge for using the second room. However, if two people each want their own room, the extra charge will be applied.
If you stay 4 nights or more, you can use the washer and dryer. Other things you might need (hairdryer, iron, etc) are always available, just ask.
What makes this home unique is the quiet, very safe location and beautifully landscaped back yard, best enjoyed in spring or fall, a gardener's delight.
If you're new to Airbnb, we recommend that you make an "inquiry" before making a reservation, and let us know a little about the purpose of your visit, etc. ALSO PLEASE BE SURE TO HAVE A COMPLETED PROFILE AND PHOTO OF YOURSELF!
We can discuss any cooking you might want to do on an individual basis, and it won't usually be a problem - but please ask first!
Guests have access to everywhere (except our bedroom). The house is spacious, and you are welcome to use the living room to read, watch TV or hang out with us. There is a beautiful, secluded garden and deck where you can sit and have a drink. A self-serve light, healthy, breakfast is included in the price, and we try to adapt this to your preference.
Our kitchen is available for light cooking, just let us know ahead of time so we can plan.
Interaction with Guests
We have really enjoyed the diversity of our guests, and have had some great conversations over a drink or even dinner. We love friendly guests, that's what Airbnb is all about. But on the other hand, if you prefer to keep to yourself, that's just fine too. We will totally respect your privacy.
This is a great location, an established, upscale, safe neighborhood, known as East Memphis. It's part of the city (not a suburb) and many people consider this the best part of Memphis. Our little street features nice homes, lots of trees and it's very quiet. You will sleep well here.
We are close to the Memphis Botanic Garden, and the Dixon Gallery.... and the only Whole Foods store in Memphis (great for take-out).
There are several excellent grocery stores less than a mile away, as well as many restaurants, nice shops, a movie theater, museums, parks, etc., all within 5-10 minutes drive. We're also near the Racquet Club, if you're here for a tennis tournament. We're about 15 mins away from Midtown, 25 mins to Downtown or Graceland. (It's a very easy drive, one straight road all the way downtown.)
We recommend you either bring your own vehicle (which you can safely park in our quiet, cul-de-sac street) or you can use Lyft or Uber (cab service). Bikes can be stored in our garage. We have been known to pick guests up or drive them somewhere, when we are able (usually weekends).
Other Things to Note
Check-in time is between 5 PM and 9 PM, please. Check-out is before noon. We do need to know your approximate arrival time, so we can be sure to be there to welcome you.
The person making the booking must be the same person who is staying, and we may ask to see photo ID if there is any doubt.
Check-in is after 5:00 PM, and before 9:00 PM. We can occasionally accommodate a different check-in time, e.g. at the weekend. We ask you to please be quiet after 10:30 PM (I get up very early for work). No pets and no children under 10. No smoking inside the house, but careful smoking is allowed outside. Please put your luggage on the luggage rack or on the floor, and not on the clean bed. Only water to drink in the bedroom, please, and no food. And please... after you take a shower, don't leave the curtain all at one side, spread it out; Memphis humidity makes it easy for things to become mildewed.
We were welcomed in a beautiful house with a large garden. Our hosts were very friendly and pay attention to every single detail. Breakfast was awesome, the house is neat and J&E were very helpful.
House is about 20 min straight drive to downtown. Pleasant neighbourhood.
As first time AirBnBers, we didn't quite know what to expect. Well, our entire experience was excellent. Juliet and Ed's home was easy to find, in a very nice neighborhood and we made to feel very welcome. Our accommodations and their whole house were lovely, comfortable and spotless. And we very much enjoyed our interaction with Juliet and Ed.
They have set a very high standard for our next AirBnB to meet!!
We highly recommend their home and hospitality.

Yet another perfect stay at Juliet's and Ed's house. We really love it there, this is our second stay at the house because it is just the perfect location and a really nice home/neighborhood. Juliet and Ed, again showed helped to make our stay as comfortable and convenient as possible. 5 stars and will definitely stay again. They really make the whole process easy.
We are really thankful to our hosts for the best AirBnB experience we've ever had. It was a very comfortable stay in a wonderful house, Juliet even prepares breakfast! It is a 15 minute ride to Graceland or Beale Street which is not a problem at all if you travel by car.
We loved to stay in this very nice house with the beautiful garden. It was a great pleasure to spend a few days in that loving environment. Juliet and Ed are really very communicative,always very helpful and lovable host. We would be very happy to meet them again.
Ed and Juliet are very friendly and welcoming hosts. They were very helpful in providing all the information we needed about the local area - which includes a Wholefoods Supermarket just up the road. The house and garden are wonderful, and in a lovely peaceful location an easy drive from the centre of town.
It was a delightful stay! We had everything we needed and more, Ed and Juliet were very helpful and accommodating, and I would definitely recommend staying there to my friends should they ever need a place in Memphis. Also, there was a blanket that was like a little piece of a cloud. Sooooo comfortable.

About the Host, Juliet And Ed
Hi, I'm Juliet and Ed is my husband. We are active, adventurous baby-boomers!
We love to travel and have visited many countries in Europe and Latin America. We really enjoy using Airbnb, both as hosts and as guests. We are non-smokers; we like walking, swimming, gardening, reading, visiting museums, live theater, good food and wine, good conversations. Ed likes to ride his bike and in 2013 he rode halfway across the USA, from Chicago to Maine. Last year (2014) we both rode along the Danube, from Passau to Vienna. If you bring your bikes, Ed can show you some places to ride - we're near the Greenline. And if you like to cook, perhaps we can make dinner together one evening (I'm mostly vegetarian). We'd love to share a cup of tea or glass of wine with you, whatever your preference!
We are avid supporters of protecting the environment, and we try to practice sustainable living: we recycle, compost, grow some of our own vegetables. Don't be surprised that we only provide cloth napkins.
We don't have any pets. Ed is a retired pharmacist; I'm an occupational therapist, still working. I was born in England, and lived for many years in Spain. I speak fluent Spanish, and reasonable French. Ed is originally from Ohio. We have really enjoyed meeting all our Airbnb guests from all over the world ... And we'd love to meet you! Venez nous voir si vous parlez français! Si prefieren comunicarse conmigo en español, no hay problema!
