We have a 1960's split level home with two bedrooms and an office. We are looking to rent the spare bedroom for anyone coming in to see what Athens, GA is all about. The bedroom has a double bed, dresser, and closet. The guest bath is off of the bedroom in the hall. We have a large den and screened in back porch for relaxing while you are here.
We are located a mile from historic 5 points and about 10 minutes from downtown by car. The UGA campus is literally a stone's throw away and you can hear the cheers from Stanford Stadium on game days in the fall.
Our neighborhood is quiet with a mixture of professionals, families, and students. We have easy access to a nearby park and you are a short distance from UGA's intramural fields or the State Botanical Gardens if you would like to run or walk the trails. There are shops and a restaurant at the end of our street. If you go into 5 points, you'll find a few more shops and restaurants. Athens is known for its music, but our cuisine is also making a name for itself. Chef Hugh Acheson, as seen on Top Chef, has two restaurants in Athens. 5 and 10 is located in 5 points (1 mile from our home), and he has a hand in The National located in downtown Athens. We are the home of R.E.M, the B52s, and Widespread Panic to name a few. There are several venues to catch music, including the Georgia Theater and the 40 Watt, both located downtown.
Both the UGA bus and the Athens bus have a stop at the end of our neighborhood. Each will carry you into town or campus. There are also cabs available to/from downtown at reasonable prices if you do not have a car.
Our town has been hailed one of the best places in the world to visit and live. This most recent post might help you decide if Athens is a place for you:
Our stay here was just perfect. We were out pretty much all the time, but we had everything we needed when we were at the house. Angela and Andy's house is adorable and in a safe wooded neighborhood. They were great, communicative hosts and I wouldn't hesitate to stay with them again. Thanks guys!
We had a lovely time staying with Andy and Angela. We booked very last minute and they were very accommodating, even providing us with breakfast eats too! Beautiful home, lovely dogs, very hospitable, and they gave us tons of suggestions for what to do while in Athens. We will come back here next time we're in town!
Angela and Andy were great hosts. They own a very beautiful place very close to downtown. They have 3 adorable dogs. Not only was the stay perfect in every way, but Angela helped us a lot with a list of things to do in Athens.
My fiance and I had a great experience this past weekend in Athens. Andy and Angela's house was perfect for our needs. We basically just needed a place to sleep, unwind and freshen up daily. It was a game day weekend and this worked perfect for us. Angela sadly was not present,but her husband Andy was great and made time to help us with directions,suggestions and was a great host. The location for us was the key as it was less than a 5 minute drive to Little 5 points in Athens at the intersection of Milledge and Lumpkin. About a 10 minute drive to downtown. We didn't see to much of Andy as most of our time was spent out but we did enjoy our stay and if it's available again we'd love to stop back in.
Philip and I had a great night and morning in the cozy home of Angela and Andy. They were extremely welcoming and made us feel right at home with our own clean personal bathroom. Our room was also clean and comfy. Loved the pups, they were very sweet, gentle and well behaved. Would highly reccomend staying with them and hope to revisit soon!
Angela and Andy were great hosts. Angela's communication before we arrived was perfect, they were adaptable to our schedules and very helpful in giving advice for football traffic! Their dogs were sweet and we would absolutely stay there again when visiting Athens.
We had a very pleasant stay with Angela and her husband! They were very accommodating and the house was cozy and comfortable. I would definatly recommend their location for a weekend get away in Athens!
