About This Listing
Inexpensive, homey room. Breakfast actually provided. Kitchen privileges. Small park and shopping nearby. Bus stops for Atlantic Station or downtown at complex entrance.
All kitchen facilities are available. Breakfast is some combination of cereal, eggs, toast, jam/honey, oatmeal, fruit, low-fat milk, and tea, but you may have to fix your own breakfast, depending on my plans for the day. If you want something not listed, let me know ahead of time.
The bed is elevated, but the trundle rolls out for a second person or if you just prefer to sleep close to the floor. The bathroom is shared only with other guests. Professional cleaners come every month.
Bedrooms are upstairs so not suitable for the disabled.
FULL DISCLOSURE: This is not the Hilton; I do not know your every need. House policy is to turn off appliances not in use. If you want to surf the Internet all night, please tell me and I will leave the wi-fi router on. If you would like 6 pillows or a straight chair in your room, please let me know that too.
TV is available as long as you're willing to negotiate with other humans interested in watching -- cats don't get a vote. (Just one more way that staying with me is like being at home.) Washer is coming soon, hopefully.
Interaction with Guests
I will be present, in part because I love to meet my guests and in part because being absent or having a separate residence for airbnb guests seems to defeat the purpose. Young visitors, particularly international ones, often find me motherly; it's probably a combination of my age, calm and reminders to wear warm clothing/take an umbrella/wear sunscreen. I always offer to take guests with me to my activities because they may be interested in the activity itself or in meeting the others who attend.
My guests, who've come from five continents to conferences, shooting ranges, family events, tourist sites and "just a warm spot in April" have expanded my outlook.
Some foreign guests have chosen to experience American life by joining me in some of my activities-- a church supper, bridge, voter registration, trivia, and book discussions, sponsored by Mensa.
play duplicate bridge and trivia,
attend Science Tavern,
sort items for a food pantry,
go to movies,
and donate blood--discount for anyone who joins me on that outing.
If, however, you want to be left alone, I can do that, too.
One guest noted that there are two kinds of cats: 1) dumb and friendly and 2) smart and aloof. I have one of each. Both spend time outside every day; if Bernie is too friendly for your taste, you can escort him to the door.
Quiet, clean and convenient.
Several Marta bus lines have stops nearby. Atlantic Station is 20 minutes away On Bus #37; World of Coca Cola, CNN, and the Atlanta Aquarium are 38 minutes away on Bus #1.
Accessible from I-75, Howell Mill or Moore's Mill exit.

Sarah was very accommodating ..her cat Bernie is the sweetest feline I've ever met ! :) I felt very safe there.
Even if we did not get a chance to meet Sarah, she was very accommodating and approved our request even though it was late. Thank you for that! Nice house in quiet and charming neighborhood.
I had a good stay here. Sarah is very friendly and offered breakfast (cheerios + coffee) every morning and offered to drop me off at the downtown bus stop on the morning of my departure. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, and easy to reach by public transportation (bus 1 or 37). The room is exactly as described, and the bed was comfortable.
We had a great stay at Sarah's. She recommended great food and we had a pleasant evening/night.
The location was great and we had no trouble finding it!
