About the property

1 bed, 1 bath private suite in house, private entrance, 10 min from downtown

Everyone loves this charming, breezy, hotel-style apartment. It's actually part of my house – it’s the master bed/bath suite. It’s separated from the rest of the house by a wall and has its own entrance. Kind of duplex-style. The interior connecting door remains locked, and our paths don’t cross inside the home. Note to people with cat allergies: Two cats live on the property. They never go in this rental unit, but I can't guarantee there will never be a cat hair in the room, despite extensive cleaning between guests.

Important: Although it’s your own private space, it is part of a house, and therefore not 100% soundproof. Though I'm mostly very quiet, you may occasionally hear a clanking pot, a burst of laughter or, on rehearsal nights, my band playing. It’s all muffled due to good soundproofing ... but not perfect soundproofing. We rarely hear our guests because of layout logistics and an excellent white noise machine.

The space includes a near-new queen-size bed, flat-panel TV, mini-fridge/freezer, microwave, 4-cup coffeemaker, and large armoire for clothes and other items. We do have wi-fi. On the deck just outside your door is a sitting area, gas grill, and sprawling yard with trees forever (we share the deck, grill and yard). Please note, there is no kitchen. We do provide dishes, coffee mugs, drinking and wine glasses, and utensils.

Rose Cliff Drive is a peaceful avenue in a quiet section of East Nashville, just six minutes to the lively Five-Points social hub, 10 minutes to downtown, 15 minutes to Opryland. The neighborhood is very residential and composed almost entirely of brick ranch houses. Our street is just three blocks long, ending in a cul de sac, so it stays very quiet here. We’re 20 minutes from the airport.

About the location:

East Nashville is comprised of several sub-neighborhoods, each with its own special features. There are three main sections: the Historic District; Rosebank; and Inglewood. The Historic section is nearest to downtown, has lots of hustle and bustle, and features early 1900s architecture -- Victorians, cottages, etc. Five minutes east of the Historic District is our neighborhood -- Rosebank. Rosebank is a leafy neighborhood with mainly 1950s brick ranch homes. Inglewood is to the north of us, and is sort of a cross between the first two -- it's leafy and residential, but features older homes, such as arts and crafts, and bungalows. If you want to be in a high-activity area, or within walking distance of shops and restaurants, you'd want to stay in the Historic District. If it's OK to be a couple of minutes away from that, Rosebank and Inglewood are perfect, very nice, and often have lower rates.

Regarding transportation: It's best to have a car; as we're a few minutes' drive from the nearest activities. Uber and Lyft, the alternative cab services, are a great option, too; many of our guests use them even when they have their own car. The #4 metro bus stops a block away from here and makes several stops downtown.

Please note: We’re musicians, so you may occasionally hear us playing, though we tend not to play when guests are here. Also, Julie is in a band – an acoustic trio. They practice once a week, either in our living room or, in warm weather, on the deck. If you're home when we practice, you'll definitely hear us. But we always discuss practice with guests beforehand so they know it's coming and to see if they prefer a time curfew on it. Occasionally, guests sit with us when we practice on the deck, and we love that. One recent couple said it was the best part of their vacation!! And it is rather fun.

We're happy to help you with anything – places to go, things to see and how to get there.

Nearby, you'll find:

• Opryland (15 minutes)

• Downtown (including Bridgestone and the Music City Center) (10 minutes)

• Five-Points (6 minutes) – restaurants, bars, coffee houses, shopping, gourmet ice cream, musical instrument store and much more

• Shelby Bottoms (2 minutes) – a nature reserve for walking, jogging and bike-riding

Check-in is 4p; check-out is 11a. If you're planning to look move here or buy investment property here, please talk to me -- I am a real estate agent! I'd love to see how I can help you with that.

About Julie Zeitlin

Hi, I'm Julie. I'm originally from Los Angeles, California, and moved to Nashville in 1999. I'm a musician and a real estate agent. I'm an outgoing person who loves adventure, loves to laugh, and prefers creativity over predictability. That said, when it comes to business, I take my endeavors very seriously and work extremely hard.

If you're moving here, or interested in investment property, please chat with me! I'd love to help you with any real estate needs.

Julie Zeitlin purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Julie Zeitlin chose Nashville

East Nashville is a wonderful neighborhood, a real 'community' - which I never had growing up in giant L.A.

What makes this apartment unique

The back features a huge deck and beautiful, sprawling back yard. Inside, there are lots of windows and light, a gorgeous red tile floor throughout, and a bathroom most guests say is 'to die for,' not least because of the giant, slate-tiled shower. The suite is an add-on to the house that I designed myself, and the result is a unique, modern, cozy space.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first Airbnb experience and we will definitely do it again! Julie and Rick's place was exactly as advertised. It was quiet, clean, and comfortable, which is just what we wanted!

The place was super cute, and it is close to everything. It's about a 20 min drive from the airport and 15 minutes to downtown. My best friend and I visited Nashville for a girl's weekend and Julie's place was perfect for two people. It was reasonably price and have everything we needed. I did not get a chance to meet Julie, but she was easily accesible via phone/text. I highly recommend staying at Julie's place!!

The suite was perfect for us.

  • 4 of 5

The property was nice, very private, clean and quiet. Next time we go to Nashville we may try a place a litttle closer to downtown or the gulch. The price was great and the owner was really nice though. About a $10-14 uber or cab ride one way so in the end it was totally worth it! But it would have been cool to be able to walk to places too.

Cosy home away from home, five minutes from everywhere you want to be.

  • 4 of 5

Comfortable, private, very clean and tasteful decor. All the amenities of a nice hotel in a local neighborhood setting. Lovely, rural feel five minutes from a very hip end of town.
