A brand new home in East Nashville, this two bedroom unit is situated conveniently close to all of Nashville’s amenities. The airport and Nashville’s best eateries and entertainment spots are found in the area. Welcoming you as you enter the house is a well-decorated living room with brand new furniture. The design of the interior is simple yet inviting, making you feel right at home from the moment you walk in. The flight of stairs leads you to the top floor where the two bedrooms are. Emanating from both is a relaxing aura. This could be because of the queen beds, spread with attractive bedding. It might also be because of the lovely décor which is kept simple. Whatever the case, you’ll enjoy your nights in the bedrooms at the end of an eventful East Nashville day.

Standing in Inglewood, East Nashville, this guest house has an eccentric personality. Still, it proudly boasts of a luxurious appeal that intertwines with its rustic look. The wood cladding offers a beautiful finish to the walls while the Mexican floor tiles ensure the interior has a lively aura. A sense of space is created by the vaulted ceilings with thick wooden beams and natural light finds its way in via the vast windows. Adjacent to the living room is a comfy queen bed that sits next to a window that frames the beautiful trees outside. And the full kitchen allows you to prepare your own meals at any time you please. However, colorful East Nashville is filled with fantastic eateries just a few minutes from the rental and you’ll find yourself enjoying meals out most of the time.

This place is lovely. It is self-contained and offers privacy, even though the owners live a floor above. The studio has a hotel vibe to it because of its beautiful design. Basic gray and white walls dominate the room, only to be opposed by the colors of a vibrant carpet. The bed is one of the most comfortable ones you can lay on.
