Our contemporary home is in the center of Nashville with all the warmth of the South. Built by a Nashville architect in 2010 as his own residence. 3 bedroom/2.5 bath home, with 32' ceiling in the main room.
The house is featured in the Fall/Winter 2016 Nashville Lifestyles Home Issue and has been used for several TV shows and music videos.
Please note the Nashville, TN state/local tax requirements below in "Other things to note". Thanks !

NOTE ON LOCAL TAXES:
Nashville is a popular AirBNB destination and has laws that regulate hosts and guests. The local and state laws require AirBNB hosts in Nashville to collect local "hotel" taxes and sales tax. Those taxes are:
Local Occupancy Tax = 6% of total including housekeeping fee
Local Occupancy Tax = $2.50 per room per night (this counts as "1" room)
TN State Sales Tax = 7% of total including housekeeping fee
Local Sales Tax = 2.25% of total including housekeeping fee.
Basically this means an addition of 15.25 percent per night !
Unfortunately AirBNB doesn't have a way to collect this yet, so before confirming a reservation, I will send a special offer with the rate you see on AirBNB + the taxes.
Yep, it's confusing (on both ends), but it's apparently the only way to do it to be 100% good with the local tax laws. The requirement is that I disclose taxes and pay them on all renters' behalf.
I have been to the City Council meetings and in regular contact with officials to discuss the taxation problems (lack of transparency, inability to use technology to collect), as of yet, no resolution or changes. (sorry!)

My partner Sean and I welcome you to our home! I'm an entertainment executive living out of town on a work assignment. We are both creative (one producer, one writer), and this is the perfect spot to relax, write, hang out, have fun and live. I'm originally from Alabama but have lived in New York and Los Angeles. Love the blend of music and politics and the great food scene here in Nashville.
Would love to help you see the city as a local (the way I enjoy it). Please don't hesitate to ask any questions here about the house, city, neighborhood and me. Happy to help.
