About This Listing
My adorable and ultra-private casita offers a restful and cozy environment for late-night crashers or week-long adventures in Nashville. It's a great space, 15 min to downtown. Be yourself, nap your naps, and plan your days exploring our city!
NEW! The casita is getting a makeover in late June, so updated pictures are to come!
The casita ("little house") is a cute, cozy, standalone cabin in West Nashville, owned by a cool young person who can help you find neat things to do in town! The casita has a separate entrance, a queen sized bed, a minifridge and microwave, and guests also have access to a full kitchen inside the main house if you're looking to cook up some grub. I love hosting people (and their pets) of all kinds, whether you're looking for a short midnight road trip crash or a longer trip to Nashville.
Only 5 miles from downtown, 2 minutes from I-40 (which will take you anywhere you need to go around town), my Casita is just what you're looking for!
The casita will accommodate 4 guests comfortably: 2 on the comfortable queen-sized bed and 2 on a comfortable futon.
The casita also has a desk and chair, room to hang clothes, robes for your use during your stay, and a big window looking out into the backyard and watch the birds chow down at the feeder. Towels and bathing essentials are provided.
Enjoy some coffee! The casita has a Keurig and a kettle so you can help yourself to a cup of coffee or tea when you wake up to the sounds of the neighbor's chickens and lazy rooster clucking away.
For those who have food to store or prepare, the casita has a mini-fridge, a microwave, and a selection of hot teas. For more elaborate cooking, guests will have free use of the main kitchen by request.
Check out is 10am, check in is 4pm, but I am flexible - just make arrangements at least 24 hours before your stay if you'd like to arrive earlier or stay later.
Free street parking, or optional use of the enclosed (gated) driveway if you prefer. Dogs welcome and cats in crates are fine; I have a large black labradoodle who does not have access to the casita, though he will be in the backyard to meet and greet you. Big fenced backyard with fire pit and lovely back porch that you're welcome to enjoy on your stay!
Getting back to the house from downtown is no problem (taxi), but I suggest that you take a Lyft to get INTO town.
Lyft is an app-based taxi service that works on Android or iOS devices that allows you to contact a driver directly and they come straight to the house. Way more reliable and faster than the cabs in Nashville. A trip from my house to downtown is about $18. Use my promo code CHMU36 to get $25 off your first ride!
A NOTE about my dog: I have a happy and large labradoodle named Mowgli, who is sweet and well-mannered, but he is big. If you're timid around large dogs, know ahead of time that he will definitely want to meet and lick you, though he's very sweet-natured and does not bite.
I look forward to hosting you!
You'll have access to the backyard, the casita, the patio dining furniture, and the main house kitchen by request.
Interaction with Guests
I tend to leave the interaction level up to the guest. If you're a people person who wants to go out or have dinner, let's do it! If you need time and space to work or catch up on rest, I will not disturb you.
West Nashville has all the necessities covered (groceries, target/walmart about 6 minutes away), plus great restaurants (try new Flip Burger, the Blue Moon, or the Stone Fox!) and fun thrift shopping on Charlotte Pike if you're into funky and eclectic vintage stuff. My house is located in a super safe and friendly neighborhood, with an adorable family-friendly park (Charlotte Park) just 2 blocks up the street - great for morning/afternoon walks. Small community grocery store 2 blocks away for last-minute needs.
There is a bus stop about 1 mile from my house. If you plan to come without a car of your own, I strongly recommend making arrangements with in advance about getting rides about town. Due to Nashville's small size and many sporting and entertainment events, getting a taxi to come out to pick you up when you're at the house can mean a long wait on the wrong day - which is why Lyft is a great alternative. I'm open to dropping you off in town or at a bus stop if you need -- just make arrangements before your stay.
My neighbors are very relaxed and easy-going, but I still want to keep in their good graces. For that reason I ask that if you come in late (after 10), you keep your voice(s) down as you park and walk to the casita.
No smoking allowed in the casita, but you may smoke in the yard or on the uncovered section of the back porch. I will revoke the security deposit if you smoke anywhere indoors.
The queen-sized bed is comfy and I hear from a lot of guests that they sleep better here than they have in a long time...I think it has to do with being in a tiny, private space all your own.
It was fantastic. Room was exactly as described. There was a huge backyard. Charlotte was a pleasure to talk to and I enjoyed socializing with her, but it was obvious she would have given me space had I just wanted a place to crash. I didn't have too much time in Nashville, but she had a great list of things to do and even offered me dinner! Great room. Would definitely use again and will recommend to friends.
Charlotte & Mowgeli were the best hosts anyone could ask for! Nashville is such a great place and this casita made us feel at home. The casita has so many unique little touches that is something you can't find just anywhere. There is a nice wooden swing by the casita as well. We found it to be a great spot to relax after returning home from the crazy downtown Broadway.
Mowgeli immediately greeted us and was by far one of the friendliest dogs I've ever encountered. And he's cute too!
Charlotte was so accommodating. Her bathroom was always open for use. The pedestal tub/shower was great too!
Honestly, the casita made our Nashville trip. We can't wait to come back to visit the casita and our new friends!
Charlotte was an incredible hostess! She went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable. She had really good recommendations on good places to eat and drink. The casita is super comfy, cozy and cute. Plenty spacious. Her house is beautiful and the neighborhood was quiet, safe and nice. Would definitely recommend !

About the Host, Charlotte
I'm a PhD student at Vanderbilt University in Nashville.I love traveling, and am so excited to be a part of this awesome home sharing community!
I love being a hostess, from baking to making coffee and finding ways to meet the needs of guests. I'm a knitter and spinner (yep! I Spins my own yarn!) and love my dog. .
I'm so thrilled to be a member of airbnb, and have loved being both a host AND guest in this community. If you're a little nervous about it - don't be! That's what public reviews are for, and email/phone exchanges make you feel better about the whole process if it's your first time. I recommend that you utilize airbnb's tools like messaging and calling, so you can get to know your hosts and the charm their city has to offer.
