Welcome home! This 60s-era condo has been modernized while still keeping the classic mid-century feel. It's large, quiet, and has all the comforts of home. (Due to many inquiries, we want to share that: **we are already booked for Labor Day 2015.**)

-- Minimum stay is 3 nights.
-- Cleaning fees are included in the price.
-- Our pricing is updated as is our calendar. Note that in some cases, holiday and special event pricing applies; the default price Airbnb shows is the lowest nightly rate. Some of our rates are higher for big events (because we are *so* close to the action!) =)

Across the street from Georgia State. Walk EVERYWHERE:

Great spot to be for travelers to games (Falcons, Hawks, Braves, Tech, GSU, Final Four, etc.), business (hotel and conference centers are within a few blocks), or fun (accessible to all downtown and midtown have to offer!).
We are 3 blocks from MARTA, Atlanta's light rail/metro system. It's a 25 minute ride to the airport ($2.25), a 5 minute ride to Midtown, and a 10 minute ride to Buckhead.
The condo is also right next to the on-ramp for I-75/85 and I-20, so getting around by car is also very convenient. See the last picture for a map with walking times from the condo to places of interest.
Other Things to Note
-- The sunroom is open to the dining room, but can be made private by pulling the curtains. It is very sunny and bright, with floor to ceiling windows. The view is of the garden and pool a few floors below, with downtown Atlanta just across the street.
-- All utilities included: gas, water, trash, electricity
-- Note: Patio is open year round - pool is seasonal and is usually open from May to September, but depends on the weather.
- Our space is for residential use and is not for social gatherings or parties.
- No smoking of any kind inside the building.
- Please be nice to others in the building as they are a part of our community.

Condo building rules:
- No pets.
- Condo quiet hours are 10 pm to 8 am (although with cement walls, it is very hard to disturb the neighbors or be disturbed yourself).
We spent a great time at Ben & Erin's place.
It is spacious, convenient and very comfortable. We were 3 colleagues attending to a professional conference in a location very near to the place, so the apartment was great to spend a great time and don't spend to much money and time in our stay or commute. Also it is easy accessible from airport by public transportation (TAXI or Subway) so If you are thinking going to a Atlanta and stay at downtown area, this is a great place!!.
I loved the condo. It look just like the pictures. It was extremely clean and easy to find. Erin and Ben leave instructions for everything.
It was literally three minutes from everything I wanted to do in midtown! I could walk if I wanted to! IT comfortably fit four people.
The only issues I could see anyone having here is that you will have to walk up 3 flights of stairs if you use the parking spot ( didn't bother me) or you'll have to walk from the parking spot to the front door and take the elevator. Also we had a few issues with the wifi.
Other than that I loved my stay. The condo was awesome and the view at night time was very pretty. I felt very safe here.,
Thanks, GeGe! We're sorry about the wifi issues - I think we got everything sorted. Also (in case others are concerned about the stairs/elevator issue) - our key cards work on a side door near our parking space that allows you to take a half flight up/down to the elevator if you don't want to walk up to the third floor. Let us know if you're ever back in Atlanta!
Ben and Erin's apartment was excellent. It was easy to find from the airport and was really central. It was very spacious and extremely well equipped. Ben and Erin were very clear with instructions and arrangements for entering and leaving the apartment.
I enjoyed my stay here while in Atlanta for a work convention. Easy to find, food nearby, and clean. I would stay again.
Ben and Erin were quick to respond with any questions I had leading up to the trip. Once I got there, their guidebook easily answered anything else I needed.
Ben is very nice, and friendly. The apartment is very cozy, and is what exactly it looks from the pictures. He sends us a very detailed instruction to use the room and my colleague was surprised about it. The location is close to several five star hotel, very convenient transportation. We like the kitchen very much so we cook every day. Everything in the kitchen is helpful. I'm sorry to Ben that, we broke the switch of the heater in the dining room.
My colleagues were very satisfied with the apartment. And we decide to live there again next year.
My stay at Ben and Erin's home went perfectly. I came to Atlanta to shoot a film and arrived with two other team mates. This was an ideal spot; centrally located, quick access to major roadways, easy parking, food nearby, clean and tidy. This was a wonderful spot to come home after a long day of working. There was space to unwind and set up the computer and do more work when necessary.
Ben and Erin were quick to respond with any questions I had leading up to the trip. Once I got there, their guidebook easily answered anything else I needed. I would highly recommend this as a spot for your next trip to Atlanta!

Erin got a job at Airbnb (!) and moved to San Francisco! She completed a PhD in economics in 2012. Ben just finished his MA in Applied Linguistics and teaches English to non-native speakers.
We are friends who have worked, traveled and lived together. In 2010, we bought an abandoned condo in Erin's building and fixed it up. It has amazing views of Atlanta and is a perfect home base for business or pleasure travel. After Erin moved out to California, she was able to put her Atlanta home on Airbnb as well.
About Erin: She's lived in Indiana, Australia, DC, Atlanta and now San Francisco, and has traveled to 5 continents, 31 countries and 46 states. She likes traveling, geography/maps, math, yoga, trivia, spreadsheets, golfing, football (Go Colts!), and animals (dogs especially). =)
About Ben: He's lived in DC, Northern Virginia, Massachusetts, Southern California, the Middle East, the Dominican Republic, and Costa Rica. He likes people, travel, running (head over to the Beltline while you're here!), biking, and spending time at the Chesapeake Bay.
We look forward to sharing our knowledge of Atlanta as well as our condo with you! We hope to see you soon!
