About the property

Our spacious, comfortable cottage in the vibrant 12 South neighborhood is 3-4 blocks from some of Nashville's best coffee shops, restaurants, bars and boutiques! Plus the cottage is 2-3 miles to downtown, under 3 miles to Vanderbilt, Lipscomb and Belmont Universities and 2-3 blocks to a grocery store, drug stores and dry cleaners.

It's approximately $8-$9 for Uber or Lyft to downtown - cheaper and easier than driving and parking! The airport is 12-15 minutes by car.

The new Sevier Park Community Center (2 blocks away) has excellent work out facilities, yoga and fitness classes for $3 and an indoor walking track.

The owners Karla and Ed are available for questions or advice but totally respect your privacy. We live in the front house on the property and are happy to help you plan your time in Nashville or give you the freedom to find your own way. We've lived in the neighborhood for over 25 years and are music, food and art lovers. We love our neighborhood and think it's the perfect place to have as a home base for visiting Nashville.

Kirkwood Cottage is a newly built 2 bedroom, 2 bath home home. Enter through a private gate off the shared driveway with guest parking for 2 vehicles. An open floor plan with vaulted ceilings makes it feel spacious and cozy at the same time. The screened side porch is the perfect spot for morning coffee or evening cocktails! And there is a completely fenced in back yard and patio for grilling as well.

The fully-equipped kitchen has everything needed to cook a great meal if you choose. Plus a beautiful walnut island with bar stools that once belonged to Earl Scruggs!

Gas fireplace in the open living area, tv with cable and Roku for streaming Netflix movies, etc. Comfortable seating and a dining table that extends to seat 6.

Master bedroom: king bed with new memory foam mattress, tv

Master bath: spacious shower - soap, lotion, shampoo and conditioner provided.

Second bedroom: queen bed with new memory foam mattress, tv

Guest bath: tub/shower combo. Soap, shampoo and conditioner provided.

Laundry room with full size washer and dryer

Other amenities: free cable wi-fi, 3 flat screen TVs, books, magazines, games, stereo system, private outdoor space.

2 night minimum, 3 night minimum for special events and holiday weekends. The property is fully permitted and 15.25% hotel tax is included in price.

Interaction with guests

We live on site unless we are traveling, in which case we will have a local contact as well as being accessible by call or text. We are experienced landlords and are here for you!

We have two friendly dogs but they have no access to your property - unless you want them to come say hello.

Great rental home!

  • 5 of 5

This house is very new, clean, and well-equipped. Owners have thought of everything often missing in other rentals like good lighting, comfortable beds, full-length mirrors, great towels, two full baths, screened porch, TVs in bedrooms, sound machines for sleeping, and everything you need in a kitchen. Extras like lots of green plants, Qtips and cottonballs, bottled water in the fridge, snacks on the counter, washer/dryer, candles, nice selection of CDs, ...too much to list! Parking was right by the front door. Convenient to everything in the area. We easily drove downtown in 8 minutes, or jumped on the freeway to go elsewhere. The neighborhood is quiet and safe, and only blocks from shopping or entertainment. Karla is there to help but respects your privacy. She always responded to emails promptly while setting up our reservations. We would stay again in a heartbeat if we are ever back in Nashville again. Don't hesitate to book this home!

Perfect house for 2 couples

  • 5 of 5

Everything on the listing is completely accurate. The house is fully stocked and Karla is available to help at any time- she even texted me to see if we needed anything. 12 South is a great neighborhood and Broadway is an $8 Lyft or Uber drive away. I would stay here again and highly recommend this vacation rental.

Cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely fabulous! From the moment you pull up the driveway, to the wonderful furnishings, it's worth your time and money. Karla was very sweet and introduced herself when we got there. An Uber to downtown was not expensive, this is a great location! There's a store around the corner to grab some essentials and she has all the necessities in the home, we didn't have to search for anything. Thank you so much for letting us stay here. We thoroughly enjoyed it!

Wonderful place, wonderful people.

  • 5 of 5

We VRBO quite a bit, and this is one of our favorite experiences. Breeze Hill has everything thing you need. It is one of those places that you really want to keep to yourself, except that the owners are wonderful and we want them to do well!

Loved, loved, loved it!!! It was the perfect “home away from home!” It’s in a great location and the owners were super friendly and helpful. They really have thought of everything to make their guests feel comfortable and at home. I immediately started telling my friends about it. I can’t wait to go back! I highly recommend this property! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Perfect Family Vacation Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage that was just what we needed for a very busy family weekend wedding and space for friends to stop by and visit.

They have everything you need to move right in and relax. Perfectly appointed decor, private yard and screened in porch for relaxation and extra space. Location is convenient to stores, park with walking trails, and 12th south restaurant area. We look forward to returning again soon!
