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 :)

  • I stayed at Jared's with a friend and she and I would 100% go back if ever in Atlanta again. Jared's place is in a cool area of town, with amenities and bars/restaurants literally around the corner. Jared was always fast to respond to my messages, and sent a great and thorough rundown of all information about his place and the area anyone might need. His place itself is ideal for any person looking for a place to stay: everything is labelled and laid out to make your stay as pleasant and easy as possible; the little basket of travel-sized shampoos/conditioners was a nice touch, and par for the course in terms of comfort you should expect. And, you know, free gelato certainly doesn't hurt either!

  • Jared is an excellent host, and he has a very nice spot in Midtown. Right off of Ponce , I highly recommend his location for the tourist. Bear in mind - Atlanta is a driving city! Parking isn't a garage or private community, but it's safe and empty lot so no hunting for spots. Jared's gelato is amazing, his demeanor is incredibly friendly, his apartment is very nice, spacious enough for two, clean, well-lit, and homey. As someone raised in Atlanta - I'll definitely use him when I visit again!

  • Great experience! Jared is a nice guy, very responsive to requests and explanations, quite well organized. The place is nice and the building may be the most beautiful in Atlanta.

  • 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.

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).
