Interaction with Guests
I try to facilitate my guests' experience without being intrusive on their privacy.
Everything about the neighborhood is good. Proximity, transportation, good restaurants, green spaces, biking, walking, running, parks and attitude.
The Candler Park MARTA train station is half a block from the Aerie Suite. The train will take you to downtown Decatur in just a couple of stops; downtown Atlanta in a few stops; the Airport; Midtown and Buckhead. The Aerie Suite comes with covered parking adjacent to the apartment.
Smoking outside the apartment is fine and ashtray is available.
We had an extremely pleasant stay in the Aerie Suite. Peter has created such a cozy and private nest and thoughtfully provided everything a traveller might need. The bed and the linens were especially comfortable. Peter was great at communicating the relevant information, but left us to our own devices for the most part. We liked the neighborhood very much and proximity to the MARTA station is unbeatable. We wish we could have stayed longer!
Peter was a lovely host, and clearly an Airbnb hosting pro! The accommodations (Wine! Berries! Etc!) were a very pleasant surprise, and he had really anticipated any potential needs of his guests. One example was that I needed to print something late at night, and surely enough there was a printer ready for me to use, last-minute. A lovely place and a great location, with a reasonable price. I already told other folks about the place for their future travels to ATL!
This is my fourth or fifth stay with Peter. As usual, he left a welcoming note and a bottle of wine on the coffee table.
The listing is accurate.
The neighborhood is an old one with a lot of character. It feels safe, and, weather notwithstanding, walking to area parks, restaurants, and shops is enjoyable. A MARTA station is just around the corner, which makes airport transport a breeze.
Peter was a gracious host, the accommodations were carefully prepared, the neighborhood was interesting, and the whole stay was enjoyable.
Peter is my neighbor so I've been in the lovely Aerie Suite several times. I rented it out for my father and nephew while they visited this week to give them (and us!) some extra room.
Peter is an excellent host, and the suite is perfect for 1-2 people. Clean and well organized, and he keeps the apartment well stocked with all the essentials as well as milk, juice, and fruit in the fridge and a bottle of wine--nice! You'll have plenty of room to park (if you drive) or just hop on/off the MARTA (Atlanta's subway) right around the corner.
Our neighborhood is quiet and safe, and there are lots of good restaurants within easy walking (and driving) distance. You'll have a great stay!
Staying in Candler Park and at Peter's Aerie Suite was a pure pleasure. Peter thought of every need and comfort a traveler would need. He had a bottle of wine, pastries, snacks, coffee (with a coffee grinder), and fridge necessities. It is very close to Marta and we enjoyed walking around enchanting Candler Park and down to Candler Market. I very highly recommend the Aerie Suite and hope to stay there again.
We had a wonderful experience at the Aerie Suite! The suite was clean, nice and a great location. Peter provided some great amenities such as umbrellas (it was a rainy weekend), snacks and a bottle of wine. We would highly recommend this suite to anyone visiting the Atlanta area!

Born in Argentina, grew up in Switzerland and Atlanta resident since 1975; retired attorney; single dad of grown and young children; professional mediator of commercial disputes. I split my time between my circa 1900 "shotgun" house here in Atlanta and a cabin in the North Carolina mountains. I enjoy motorcycling and solo traveling almost anywhere - with particular focus on on the old "Eastern Bloc"; hiking and alternative lodging. I hope to provide the same kind of experience and amenities in the Aerie Suite that I appreciate when traveling.
