About this listing
The gate to the backyard is unlocked, and when you check in the door to the Guest House will be unlocked. The key is right in front of you on the little table when you walk in so you can lock up your things.
This is a safe,beautiful neighborhood.
If privacy and quiet serenity is what you would like, then my little Guest House will be a comfy respite! The sliding glass doors that open onto your own private garden patio is my favorite feature. This feature is what makes it perfect for a pet friendly place because your pet will be safe, and can enjoy having free access to indoor outdoor entry. Birds and 100 yr old oaks & pines gives you a natural air conditioner, & cool breeze!
University of Memphis, The Highland Strip, Poplar Plaza are in walking distance. Cooper Young, Overton Square, Overton Park, & Audubon Park are close in bike riding distance. I have a cool handmade Italian Tommasini bike for rent $5/day. Bike paths connect my place to Downtown, Midtown, & out East, as well as the Greenway Bike Paths.
Interaction with guests
Interaction with guests depends on the guests. I am available if guests need anything, otherwise I provide them with plenty of privacy as well.
Texting is the fastest way to reach me, but you can call me as well at anytime.
Other things to note
You have a full kitchen with a refrigerator, New Wave cook top, Gourmet Coffee, coffee pot, microwave, and toaster. Private bathroom with great shower. And if you want to enjoy a beer and cigarette on the private patio you may without being disturbed, eventhough the Guest House itself is smoke free!
Memphis is Home of the Blues and the birth place of Rock n Roll ; however I
like the roads less traveled like: The Civil Rights Museum, Rumba Room (303 South Main/open Friday & Saturday nights) a diverse, beautiful Latin dance club, the Mississippi River, and great cycling trails!!!

I was born in Memphis, worked for FedEx for 17 yrs.,moved to Colorado with my husband for 5 yrs., then to San Francisco for 11 yrs. I loved San Francisco, but after my divorce it was too expensive and I moved back to Memphis. I graduated from San Francisco State University in Urban Planning and worked in the Central Valley, Monterey, and San Jose in Planning! When I came back to TN I got a teaching certificate in Biology and taught high school for a while, and now I am retired. I am still working part-time as a nanny and I love it!!!
