Other Things to Note
You'll likely notice previous guests' reviews referencing our sweet orange tabby cat, Gus. He no longer lives at the house and is back in our home in Austin, Texas permanently. That said, any pet allergies should not be an issue.
No smoking of any kind is allowed inside the house, and please be respectful of neighbors and the neighborhood with noise levels. Please don't host a party or event with additional people without discussing this in advance with us. Our neighbors are also our friends, and they will alert us if anyone staying at the house is disturbing them.
We try not to keep many super firm rules. If you treat our home respectfully, we'll get along great. :)
This house is amazing! The house is very clean and well put together. So close to everything. The average taxi was 5-6 bucks to Broadway. There is a fun bar scene in walking distance from the house and really good restaurants. Matt and Harmoni are very accommodating with supplies at the house. They stay in touch with you during your trip always making sure you don't need anything. They provided a list of fun places and amazing food spots. I would love to stay here again. We had four people in our group and it was not crowded at all. If your looking for a great spot to stay this is it.
The cottage was as listed although maybe a bit smaller than I anticipated. It's cute and in a nice part of East Nashville. It doesn't feel very lived in but definitely better than staying in a hotel!
Lovely home in a great location, with everything we needed for a comfortable weekend stay. Matthew and Harmoni made everything super easy and were accommodating when we wanted to make some last minute changes to our plans.
This rental was the perfect rental for my weekend getaway. The home was as listed, clean and in a great location. The house came with some great recommendations for things to do in east Nashville and Matt answered any questions that I had. If I ever come back to Nashville I would definitely stay here again.
Perfect!! We loved staying here! Just as pictured and described. Quaint, nicely set up; a very clean, quality place in a wonderful section of the city. Enjoyed the sunny rooms, back yard with the double swing, front porch to sit out like the locals do, neighborhood architecture and excellent eateries, and the proximity to the District and the airport. Hosts Matt & Harmoni provided an excellent welcome book, surprise extras, and were always available if needed while completely respectful of privacy. Love Nashville, and we look forward to staying here again!
We had a great time and really enjoyed staying at Matt and Harmoni's. There house is lovely and the neighborhood is great, lots of neat things walking distance (less than .5 miles). There was a misunderstanding with check out procedures but Matt was very understanding.
Matt and Harmoni were very communicative and warm hosts. Unfortunately we did not get to meet them because of our travel schedule, but they were very connected and available by phone/text. Their home is lovely and very comfortable. Located in East Nashville, it is very convenient for tourists who don't want to stay in a downtown hotel. Within a very short travel to the bars/restaurants/BBQ/honky tonks. Would definitely recommend their home to others!
About the Host, Matthew & Harmoni
We are more recently from Austin, TX (a stint in Indiana for Matt and Louisiana for Harmoni previously) and are currently living in Nashville, TN. We work together professionally in tv/film/video production, both with college degrees in that field, and Harmoni works separately in music as a bass guitarist and vocalist for a variety of nationally touring bands and artists.
We love to travel, have been around the world a bit together, and are always looking to explore new cities, great food and drinks, culture, art, music, and more -- all while making new friends along the way. We are strong proponents of Airbnb and love being hosts and guests.
