The Space

This is a new house I designed and built so that my 2 kids that are off to college would have a nice private suite for themselves when they came to visit. It just so happens that this is also perfect for airbnb travelers!!....Suite 1 has virtually the whole first floor to itself. All the suites are soundproofed between each unit, and each unit has its own lockable door. The big plus is that its only about $6 taxi fare to the downtown entertainment district or 2 blocks over to the Music City Circuit stop (free downtown loop bus service 6AM thru 6PM), or 25 min walk!

No Taxes..No Cleaning Fees..No Deposit.
But take care of my home!!!

New Home just completed in May 2012 - 1 Bedroom Suite with its own private full kitchen, open Living room and Dining area. Master bedroom suite on 3rd floor with roof top terrace and a great skyline view of downtown Nashville, whirlpool tub, and cathedral ceilings! There is also a half bath on the living area floor. Kitchen has full refrigerator, oven, microwave, and dishwasher. This suite also has its own 2nd level covered porch! Living room has 70" 3D TV with full satellite channels including HBO, Cinemax, and Showtime. Bedroom has 55" TV.

If you need a 2nd bedroom, Suite 2 may be available and you will have the complete 2nd and 3rd floors to yourself.

Come and go as you please. Beautiful new suite located on the second and third floors of my home is just 2 blocks to Bicentennial Mall State Park and Farmers Market, and just a few more blocks to Germantown restaurants and downtown Nashville.



Before your arrival you will be given a 4 digit code to the front door, and your room key will be on the table in the dining area. You can checkin any time after 3. There is parking on the drive.

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 if you need anything.....just give me a shout!!

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 7 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. But just do as i do and walk...only about 25 mins to the downtown entertainment district!!

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Fantastic space and host. The home was very clean, beautifully decorated and well appointed. Everything was just as the pictures show and Rick made himself easily available though we did not need him for anything. It may seem trivial for others, but the best part for us was the bed. My husband is 6'4" and we are used to our California King at home, staying anywhere without a King isn't really an option and Rick's bed was very comfortable. All in all, we felt like we were home, rather than uncomfortably placed in someone else's space. The location was perfect and we will definitely be staying again on our next trip to Nashville.

  • The penthouse rooftop/terrace was amazing. It was very clean and has very nice decor. Quiet street, full kitchen, two private decks, close to grocery store and farmer's market. Not too far from downtown (about 25-30 minute walk or 7 minute walk to a free bus to take you downtown) It had everything we needed. Be prepared to walk a few flights of stairs while staying here. One set to the main entrance of the house, second set to the penthouse entrance and third set to the bedroom with very private deck. With that said... it has some nice views to downtown from the top deck and it'(email hidden) to watch lightning storms. Rick was very easy and available to communicate with us. This one's worth a few nights stay! Thanks Rick!

  • I can't say enough good things about Rick's place. This was my first time using airbnb and I was a little nervous. Now I'm afraid that no other property could live up to this!! It was super clean and bigger than it looked in photos. My daughter was getting married and got ready there also. I didn't meet Rick in person but he is very responsive and friendly. The smoke detector started to chirp at 5:30 am and he had someone over quickly to fix it.

    The location is minutes from downtown and down the street from great restaurants. We tried Monell's and The Cupcake Collection. Both were spectacular.

    What I appreciated the most was that Rick's place had "incidentals" there. Such as tape, plastic bags, aluminum foil, coffee/cream/sugar and shampoo, etc. You get the picture. It was like being in someone's home while they were away!

    We loved it and will certainly be back!

  • We had an absolute great time in Nashville! The accommodations at the house were fabulous. We had so much room, it was a pleasure being there. We really wanted to take advantage of the porch and deck, but the weather was a little too cold to sit out there during our stay. Everything at the house was immaculate and the decorations were just beautiful. We are already talking about returning there! Having a car, though, makes it so much easier to get around, we were glad we rented one. Can't wait to go back!

  • We had a very nice stay at Rick's place. We loved having morning coffee on the patio. Convenient location only minutes from Downtown. I would recommend staying here on future visits.

  • My wife and I stayed at this property of Rick's and I would highly recommend it for anyone travelling through Nashville. It was on a quiet street, the balcony's (email hidden) to sit and relax with a glass of wine and only 5 mins to downtown. Our favourite part of the house (although it's all beautiful) was the bed. Most comfortable bed we have slept in. Rick (email hidden). He gave us our privacy, but also was very quick to respond to any email we sent prior to our trip. Thank you Rick for providing (email hidden) to stay!

  • Beautiful home, wonderful location, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Rick made sure to do all he could to ensure that we had a great weekend, even with some last minute changes in plans that could have possibly impacted the dates I was planning to stay in the home. Rick (email hidden).

I know your not coming to Nashville to visit me, but i will do my best to (email hidden) 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!!
