Cozy room in a safe neighborhood with private point of access. Visitors may use backyard as well as kitchen. Coffee and tea provided. Private bathroom accessed via the kitchen. Perfect for a couple looking to getaway, and enough space if you need to bring an air mattress!
This room is an add-on to the house, built in the 1930's. It's generally quiet and peaceful, with a good amount of sunshine during the day. There is a private point of access, which gives guests freedom to come and go as they please.
Guests can access their own room via a private outside door. It's very safe and secluded at night. When you arrive, please walk to the end of our driveway and through the gate to the backyard. Your room can be accessed through the SECOND door on your right. Your key will be hidden for you in a black key holder in the green flower bed next to the stairs.
The house is a bit confusing as it makes one big circle! Once you exit your bedroom into the main house, make an immediate right towards the laundry room. If you then make a left, you will be in the kitchen. Walk straight through the kitchen to access your private bathroom, which will be to the immediate right.
The kitchen is shared, but guests have their own coffee pot and sink in their room to use at their disposal. You can also use out hot water pot to boil water for tea.
Interaction with guests
We'd love to interact with you as much as you want or as little as possible! Both Josh and I are musicians, and we typically know of fun, local things going on. If you stay over a weekend, you can most likely catch Josh out on the town playing with his band!
Other things to note
We have a dog and a cat. The dog (Bettie) is great for security purposes and loves to play fetch. The cat (Pinky) is nice and would love for you to love her, if you feel so inclined. Although we love our pets, we hate their fur; so we do our best to keep things really clean!!
We ask that you stay within the section of the house that is designated for you! Quiet times begin at 11:00pm (unless specified otherwise) and end at 8:00am. If you use the kitchen, just clean up! :) No outside pets - sorry, our animals don't always play well with others.
Please, NO SMOKING in the house or on the premises! Evidence of such may leave room for cancellation of the rest of your stay. Thank you very much!!!
Janina grew up in small-town Nebraska but has been living in Memphis for the past five years. Joshua, on the other hand, has spent his entire life in and around Memphis. Janina and Josh love to explore all this world has to offer, and are two big hippies at heart!
We both LOVE good coffee and have learned a great deal about it as baristas. We actually met over coffee while working together at a local coffee shop! We also currently write and perform music together, and Josh is a lead singer in a local band called Star & Micey.
One of the ways Janina expresses her creativity is in cooking. She loves to cook with AND for others! She has been playing the piano since she could talk, and one of her lifelong goals is to make music accessible to all who desire to learn. Joshua is an avid songwriter, singer, and guitar-player, and together we aim to make beautiful melodies come alive. Our faith and spirituality form one of the bedrocks of our lives, and we are on a constant quest to grow and learn from our relationships with God, others and the world.
