Althea was an incredible host. Everything about the booking process and our stay was perfect. Althea was very prompt to reply to our messages and messaged us to check in and make sure everything was going well.
When we arrived at her beautiful apartment, we felt right at home. Althea left us fresh bread, Nutella and muffins on the counter. Her apartment was extremely tidy and well decorated.
Bed was comfortable, AC worked well...all things that make for a good stay in the south.
It was a pleasure to have Althea as a host and we have only great things to say about our stay in Memphis.
Althea was a WONDERFUL host! My husband and I stayed at her house for two nights in May 2013. Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet her since she was out of town, but she was always easily available by phone or email. Her home was perfect for what we needed, and it was definitely plenty spacious for the two of us. Parking was super convenient and easy. The area definitely felt safe, but I still appreciated that her building was gated and required a code for entry. The neighborhood is wonderful. It’s on the trolley line, close to Sun Studios, and right next to a couple of great restaurants. With just a quick trolley ride (about 5 mins), you’re in the Riverfront/Beale Street area. Her condo building also has a very nice, private courtyard area, which we took advantage of quite a bit after busy days and nights in the city. AND, she even left us bagels and fresh fruit to snack on! All in all, we couldn’t have asked for a better host or house. Thanks Althea!!
Althea's apartment is a great space in a really good location. The trolley stop is just outside which gets you into the centre of town in about 5 mins. I actually walked the first time and it took about 20mins to Beale Street. Sun Studios is just around the corner (plan your visit as the tour was booked up when I arrived). The apartment was comfortable and quiet and Althea was kind enough to leave the contents of her fridge for me! She was also on hand to answer any questions I had. There is secure parking at the back and a nice cafe opposite the trolley stop. The surrounding streets are pretty quiet but as a single female I felt safe. Would recommend for any stay in Memphis.
Althea's place is the hippest joint in Memphis! If you could stay at the Stax Museum, she might have competition. The place is beautiful and modern, it's very convenient to downtown and attractions, especially Sun Studios (only about a block away!) Althea provided towels and soap and left a loaf of bread and some clementines and said we could help ourselves to food, which she really didn't need to, as there are lots of good restaurants relatively close by. The place is very near to the charming old-school trolley that goes right downtown in a matter of minutes. Highly recommended!
Such a great stay! Althea is so kind and so cool. She went out of her way to accommodate our weird schedule so that she could show us the space, and even gave us full access to a stocked kitchen!
The coolest thing is the apartment itself - such an awesome space. It's a gorgeous loft, super spacious, so beautiful, with a comfortable bed, large living room, bar, full kitchen -- everything you could need. And only steps away from sun city studios and walking distance to downtown and Beale Street. Would recommend it to anyone coming to Memphis! Thanks Althea!!
Loved seeing the city and loved staying in this part of town. Proximity to the Trolley made it very convenient. The flat was very sunny and we enjoyed opening the windows! Perfect set-up! We will be back!
Nothing but good things to say about Althea: clean, considerate, friendly, and easy to communicate with. Don't hesitate to host!
Althea's apartment is in a great location and it's easy to get to the downtown spots using Memphis' cool old trolleys.
She is a welcoming and friendly person who will no doubt enjoy the opportunity to make guests feel comfortable and at home!
