Experience Nashville like a local and stay in it's most dynamic neighborhood 12th Avenue South! Ground floor - 1100 sq ft home. Discover all the charming shops, cafes, & restaurants in our safe neighborhood. Downtown, Vanderbilt, Belmont, Bluebird & Ryman within 5mi

The space

Permitted with Metro Nashville – complies with mandated safety inspections and insurance. Local taxes are included in list price.

Please note: though this space is very close to all the fun and entertainment Nashville, and especially 12 South has to offer, it is in a quiet neighborhood and is not suitable for loud noise and/or partying. There may also be guests staying on the floor opposite yours, please be conscientious of them. Smoking, vaping, and pets are not allowed.

Ground and second floors are independent units with separate entrances. Each unit includes: bedroom with queen-sized bed, living room, full bathroom, and a full kitchen equipped with refrigerator, stove, and microwave, and Keurig coffee maker. However, I definitely recommend the many great coffee shops and restaurants nearby. We’re in a totally safe, family-friendly, walkable area!

20 minutes drive/UBER/Lyft between the airport and my house.

If you are new to Airbnb, WELCOME! If you would, please submit at least three ID verifications, including your offline ID (driver’s license) with Airbnb. The hosts don’t see the ID’s, but supplying them adds security for everyone involved. Most of us (myself included) use phone number, email, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), and driver’s license for verification. If you have only a few or no reviews, please let me know a little about yourself and the reason for your visit. It makes things smoother and friendlier, and helps us to get to know each other.

If you're going to Nashville, stay in 12 South... If your staying in 12 South, stay at Blaine's Place. Beautiful house, very well appointed, clean and comfortable. It has everything you need and more to serve as your stepping off point for many great things to do and see in the area. The local restaurants are amazing for breakfast all the way through to late night cocktails. The area and house both feel very safe and private. I would definitely recommend this stay to anyone going to Nashville. Thanks Blaine for making this part of our trip so great!

Blaine's home was a great place to live during our time in Nashville. We stayed three blissful nights. His home is equipped with quality products and furnishings. The house is clean and spacious for a couple. It has everything you need for a most relaxing stay and sleep. Blaine's home is located in the 12 South area with many restaurants, boutique shops and two awesome music stores. It's about a 15 minute walk to the nearest grocery store, Kroger. We enjoyed dining at Bartaco and drinking at the Embers Ski Lodge. Lyft to downtown will run between $7-$9 depending on where/when you are going. You will like living in Blaine's home. Have fun, enjoy!

I booked this airbnb for my parents while they were in town visiting and it did not disappoint! It's just steps to 12 South, which is a prime location. The house was very clean and well maintained - would definitely recommend!
