To quote the Atlanta Journal Constitution of October 6 2011:
"Ansley Park is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Atlanta but it is also now considered one of America's 10 Best Neighborhoods! Due to its central location and the beautiful green scenario surrounding the homes in Ansley Park, it is a perfect place for those looking for suburban life with good access to the city center. It is a historic neighborhood, which is highly valued and admired in Atlanta. Its history is reflected in the homes in Ansley Park. Homes in Ansley Park are lovely and charming with stately architecture in the Georgian, Colonial, English and modern style. Although prices can be high, as it is a very desirable place, it is an embracing region as homes in Ansley Park offer anything from small cute houses to enormous imposing mansions.
The neighborhood provides enjoyable areas such as a golf course and nearby Winn, McClatchey and, of course, Piedmont parks with swimming pools, tennis courts, jungle gyms, picnic tables and plenty of grass for outside activities or picnicking. Residents of Ansley Park can admire waterfalls in those parks, which embellish the beautiful and peaceful green area where people go jogging and biking. Homes in Ansley Park are basically close to any amenities required in daily life but with a considerable distance to the stress and noise of a big city. In Ansley Park, the neighborhood provides safety, peace, and natural beauty. Living there is a dream and a privilege for everyone including families looking for the best environment for their kids."
This space is entirely for guests. The washer and drier are for their use only but located in a shared basement. The outside BBQ grill and deck are shared, as is the back garden. Picking from the organic veggie and flower gardens is for the host's use only except by prior arrangement.
Interaction with Guests
This is a very private space and I leave it up to my guests how much interaction they would like. I am on hand for advice and any help they need but respect their privacy.

This is a beautiful setting with wonderful opportunities to explore ATL within walking distance. However, I used it to recover from surgery. It was comfortable, well maintained, in a beautiful setting and had everything one might need while away from home.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Gillian. She was genuinely warm and caring and assisted us with any needs we might have. She was prompt in every communication and adaptable to my special circumstances. With family, and people bringing meals we had lots of traffic but tried to follow rules. She was a most gracious and caring host.
It was really a "safe haven" where my family and I could take the time we needed to recover. Nancy Mitchell
My daughter and I stayed at Gillian's for a business trip. We loved her place! It was very comfortable and charming! It was enjoyable to come back to after a long day walking the Atlanta Market on our buying trip! Although the weather was unseasonably very cold and we couldn't enjoy what she had to offer outside ... I know we would have loved to have a glass of wine by her garden or on her deck! Thanks Gillian for a lovely stay!!

Gillian was a wonderful host - gracious, thoughtful, and attentive. The rooms were perfect, and the site was ideally located. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and wholeheartedly recommend.
Property was beautiful. Space was charming and super comfy for the three of us. Great location! Very convenient to nearby mini-mall with groceries and gym, and easy driving to downtown Atlanta.
Landlords were so nice. Two thumbs up. Overall great experience and would rent this place again!
