Gorgeous 1900s Condo, Best Location

Apartment - Private room · N Highland Ave, Atlanta, GA 30306, United States

The Space

ABOUT THE AREA.....
Right on the border of picturesque Virginia Highland and vibrant Poncey Highland, the location is really unbeatable -- the heart of *real* Atlanta. There are a ton of great restaurants, boutiques, nightlife, parks, grocery stores, libraries, coffeeshops, etc all within distance of a pleasant walk down our tree-lined streets. And anything you want to go to that's not in walking distance is usually pretty close (typically within 5-10 minutes driving).

As a bonus, I am totally obsessed with food and have a list of my favorite places that I'll send to you upon booking.

ABOUT THE UNIT...
The condo complex itself was built in the early 1900s following a unique pan-era architectural style and has two 3-story buildings facing each other, with a beautifully landscaped courtyard in the middle.
FUN FACT: this unit was recreated exactly to serve as the home Katherine Heigl's character in the movie Life As We Know It

Bedroom - The room comes fully furnished with a double bed and all the fixins (see pics). There is also a twin air mattress and a large leather couch in the living room that is available should you have more guests.
**please contact me for rates & availability if you are interested in renting the entire condo**

As for the rest of the space, there is a living room with fireplace, renovated kitchen/dining room & bathroom, and a nice large porch (which includes a hanging chair and fresh herbs in season) overlooking the courtyard. Laundry is also located inside the apartment. There is secure wi-fi throughout the condo, and parking nearby.

Everything is completely furnished (with an impeccable sense of style, if I may say), including all the cooking equipment you could want -- from a wok to a blendtec to a full rack of spices -- a handful of musical instruments, and plenty of homemade gelato that you should help yourself to.

ABOUT ME......
I'm 26 and am starting a premium dairy free gelato company called Revolution Gelato. My sister Leah lives with me as well, so if you see the listing available that means that one or both of us won't be here.

Personality-wise, I'm generally very easy going and easy to get along with. Traveling, eating, cooking, and playing/listening to music are my favorite things, but I have a pretty wide variety of interests and lead an active life here.

ABOUT YOU.......
Please be responsible and reasonably clean. Beyond that, let me know what brings you to town, what you're looking to get out of it. That way I can make sure it's something I can provide :)

  • Jared's place is so conveniently located to all of the things in Atlanta. He is a very welcoming gentleman with everything available for you to do. The whole house, including the kitchen is clearly labeled, which is a big plus. I stayed there for a week and a half during my travel for work and will definitely look to book this place when I travel to Atlanta again.

  • Jared is a very nice guy and helpful with directions for restaurants etc. The apartment is situated in a nice area and has great character. You will see a few homeless people in the area who do no harm at all and we felt safe. Jared gives a lot of helpful information upfront so you'll be able to prepare your stay very well. Thank you Jared, we'd love to come back again.

  • Jared was very accommodating and helpful. He directed me to some good restaurants that were walking distance from his place. His place was very clean, the bed was comfortable, and he was very easy to get along with. I would definitely recommend staying at Jared's place.

  • Nice spot and a nice location. Jared was very helpful with directions and pointing out the highlights. Try the gelato! Delicious!

    You should be aware there is a soup kitchen and/or homeless center nearby. We were not bothered by anyone but were surprised by the number of people down on their luck. We come from a smaller town and perhaps this is the norm for a big city

    My first airbnb booking. All-in-all a good experience.

  • Our stay at Jared's place was excellent. We unfortunately did not get a chance to meet Jared, but his sister Leah was there. An exemplary hostess! We stayed in Jared's room, which was quite comfortable and spacious. We felt like we had enough privacy and everything was super clean. We also helped ourselves to some homemade gelato--sublime! Our favorite flavors were orange, espresso vanilla, and peanut butter. Jared knows his stuff! I would recommend his place to anyone who is interested in being within walking distance to the Poncey-Highland area (you're smack in the middle of restaurants) or just wants a nice, affordable place to stay.

  • Never actually got to meet Jared, but his sister Leah was at the pad, and she was wonderful. Jared's place is super easy to get to and is in great walking distance from a lot of great shops and restaurants! The condo itself was wonderful. Beautiful garden outside, awesome balcony to chill on, the entire place was very comfortable and clean and the bathroom... well I'm kind of in love with his shower.
    Jared was super easy to communicate with, fast responses to my questions and the same goes to Leah.
    Definitely would want to stay there again when I'm in Atlanta!!

  • Jareds place is wonderful! His apartment is fully stocked with cooking equipment and spices that made it easy to take advantage of eating in. The apartment is quite and located in a very fun and lively part of Atlanta, and the neighbors were all very friendly. Jared was very flexible with our arrival and departure time which was an unexpected treat. I will be taking advantage of his home the next time I am visiting the area and would recommend staying there if you are visiting.

  • Jared was out of town when I booked his place, but even so he arranged for me to get keys and everything I needed. He was incredibly helpful. His place is exceptionally clean and tidy, and his spare bedroom was perfect for my three days in Atlanta. I highly, highly recommend.

    April 2013
  • We had a great time in Atlanta at the Final Four. Jared's condo proved to be all and more than expected. He is very organized and everything is labeled as to use. We were sorry not to have met him but felt very comfortable staying at his condo for the long weekend. Thanks!

About
I am extremely laid back, upbeat, open-minded, and a lover of all things life. I moved to Atlanta in 2010 for work (I was a business consultant for three years), and I absolutely love it here. It's a great city with a lot going on. My favorite things to do include travel, music (I listen to a wide variety and also play guitar/harmonica) as well as eating (total foodie) and cooking. In fact, I ran an underground restaurant in college (search for dinnersat76) and am now launching a premium vegan gelato company (search for revolution gelato).
