Romantic and cozy with everything you want and need. Urban location and benefits without urban pell-mell and chaos. No need for a car - catch the train to the MARTA Edgewood/Candler Park station (half a block away) from the Airport. Grind your own complimentary coffee or walk to half a dozen coffee shops, numerous neighborhood restaurants, Candler Park Market, Little Five Points or the Edgewood Retail District (Kroger, Target, Best Buy etc.).

Great home base for visits/business Emory, CDC, Georgia State, Georgia Tech and all city conventions. Perfect for one or two adults but no more than two guests. No pets please. There are cats, a dog (hairy and friendly) and a chicken or two in and around the yard( or coop) from time to time but none of them has ever been allowed into the Suite.

Interaction with guests
I try to facilitate my guests' experience without being intrusive on their privacy.
Everything about the neighborhood is good. Proximity, transportation, 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. Uber and Lyft are always available.
Other things to note
Please be considerate of the neighbors so absolutely no parties. No overnight guests who are not pre-approved or more than two overnight guests per night. Any violation of these rules will incur an automatic increase of $89 per day in the room rate. The minimum two-day booking can sometimes be waived for an additional $60 cleaning fee. I try to accommodate early arrivals and late departures when possible ( $40 extra charge may apply) and you can always store your luggage in the garage.
You must be a minimum of 22 years old to book. Absolutely no smoking inside the Suite. Smoking outside the apartment is fine and ashtray is available. PARKING: because of the convenient but restricted alley parking, only one car per reservation is allowed and all turnarounds must be made on the Suite parking pad. Visitors of guests should park either on Oakdale Rd. or Iverson St. To avoid inconveniencing my alley neighbors, under no circumstances should guests or visitors utilize adjacent alley properties to turn around to avoid backing out of the alley. Speed in the alley should be kept to no more than 4 mph.
The Aerie Suite is not a "crash pad" or party central. It is my goal to provide all of my guests with the finest possible experience at the most reasonable fare and also to avoid importuning my cleaning assistant who has her own plans and life and future guests who deserve a five star experience. Please leave the Suite in a clean and orderly fashion at check-out. This includes, for example, rinsing and stacking dishes (if you don't want to wash them) and not utilizing the linens to remove make-up. Please put the garbage in the garage bins (door next to the Suite.) All doors should remain unlocked unless otherwise requested. Also, please note:
1. There is absolutely no partying permitted, or overnight guests who are not pre-approved, or more than two overnight guests per night (including infants) without express permission. A violation of any of these rules will automatically raise the daily rate by $89 per day.
2. As a general rule, my cleaning assistant runs on a tight schedule to prepare the Suite for same day check-ins. Accordingly, any unapproved check-out past the stated checkout time of 11 am. will, at my sole discretion, incur a $50 surcharge for all or any part of each 30 minute increment past 11 am.
All bookings and payments will be made according to the terms and conditions of this listing site and there will be no bookings based on "side deals," wire transfers, cash payments, cashier's checks or other terms or conditions inconsistent therewith.
Thanks for your consideration.

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 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.
