We had three nice weeks in the spacious villa unit, everything worked well and Tom was very helpful. Generally very quiet area, no traffic noise, only noticeable noise was from freight trains a couple of times per night. We can definitely recommend it.

I came to Knoxville because of the hurricane in Carolinas, and Tom generously offered his great villa for free. The villa is the best airbnb I've ever lived. It's been amazing!

Tom is an excellent host. My husband and I was looking for some very quiet time. We received exactly what we needed. I would recommend this place to anyone. Very clean, stylish with lots of special touches. We would stay here again.
