The Space

BEFORE YOU BOOK/INQUIRE:

-- If you're new to the site, please make sure you have verified your phone number, added a profile picture, and completed your profile with a few sentences about yourself. If you don't have the above, we'll ask you to complete these items before accepting your request.
-- 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!) =)
-- Please send an inquiry if you are local before booking.
-- No smoking and no pets allowed.

Interaction with Guests

The Neighborhood

NEIGHBORHOOD:

Across the street from Georgia State. Walk EVERYWHERE:
-- to Peachtree Center MARTA station (3 blocks)
-- Sheraton, Hyatt, Hilton and Marriott Marquis (2 blocks)
-- AmericasMart (3 blocks)
-- Centennial Olympic Park/Georgia Aquarium/Phillips Arena/Georgia Dome/World of Coke (6 blocks)
-- Georgia Tech (about 25 minutes)
-- grocery (about 15 minutes)
-- MLK Historic Site (about 20 minutes)
-- See the map tab for some of our favorite spots!

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!).

Getting around

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

MORE DETAILS:

-- 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.

  • The host answered emailed questions very quickly. The condo was exactly as advertised. It was extremely clean and well-stocked with everyday kitchen/bathroom items. The neighborhood was typical for Atlanta, however we felt very safe in the building.

  • We had a great stay at Ben and Erin's condo. The building is quiet with fast elevator service. We cooked many meals in the well-stocked kitchen. We had no car but the location is within a mile of pretty much all of the best tourist attractions and the downtown area. Loved the cheery decor, puzzle books, and reading materials!

    June 2014
  • The building was very easy to get to - a downhill walk from the nearby train station, which is directly linked to the airport. The watchman was there to give us the key, and the apartment was very clean, comfortable, and equipped with everything we might possibly need. Our contact with Ben and Erin was only by email, but they were very responsive to all my inquiries. The building had many amenities that we didn't have time to check out, let alone use (like the pool).

  • nice location, very comfortable, easy access and better than pictures show!!

  • I had a great stay at the condo. It was clean comfortable and in very great location. I walked to bars and restaurants, also enjoyed an hour run around the city to the park off 10th and Piedmont st. I also received great compliments for booking the place for my group and I. I will definitely return for my next trip to Atlanta. Bonus points for being located right next to downtown hotels that charge $30 a night in parking, the place comes with a parking spot. I thank Erin and Ben for being in constant communication when getting ready to check in, and making sure everything was prepared for my arrival. Excellent service.

  • Wir hatten eine großartige, erholsame Woche in dem Condo von Ben und Erin. Es ist alles wirklich so, wie auf den Fotos, klar, übersichtlich und alles sehr liebevoll gemacht.
    Sie haben für ihre Gäste eine Broschüre erstellt mit allen Details zur Wohnung, mit Hinweisen zum nächsten Supermarkt, U-Bahn etc und Empfehlungen von Restaurants und schönen Orten in Atlanta. Sehr cool.

    Wenn wir eine Frage hatten, habe beide sehr schnell geantwortet.
    Das alles hat unseren Aufenthalt extrem entspannt, wir fühlten uns von Anfang an Willkommen. Und vorher hatten wir alle Infos, die wir brauchten um dorthin zu kommen.
    Der Service und die Freundlichkeit von Erin und Ben sind hervorragend und das Condo sehr einladend. Für uns war es wie ein zweites Zuhause. Toll und nochmal ganz herzlichen Dank an Erin und Ben!

  • Very comfortable and welcoming condo with very nice decoration! Everything is well organized and it was very easy to check in and out. The condo is very well located in Atlanta and the parking is very useful. For sure we'll recommend Ben and Erin's condo to our friends and family!

  • Our family had a great stay at Ben and Erin's place. Everything was exactly as listed and pictured. Our kids LOVED sleeping in the sunroom on the trundle beds. We had fun in the pool as well. Only comment - if you need to do a load of laundry, leave enough time to hang up your things to dry - the washer dryer doesn't get things very dry. We knew that though and planned ahead to hang our few things up so it wasn't a problem. Great stay, we would absolutely stay there again.

    May 2014
  • I had a great experience at this location! The condo was exactly as listed with great decor and amenities. I especially liked the location of the condo; easy to get to and from anywhere in the Atlanta area and walkable to the downtown area.

    The host communicated very effectively and quickly! The whole process was very smooth.

    May 2014
  • Host communication is excellent, they're correspondence is fast and detailed. Everything was just as they described and the whole experience was smooth and seamless. The building exterior looks a little run down but the lobby is nice and the condo itself is clean, updated, spacious and well equipped. I never met either of the hosts but I don't view that as a negative at all. I was just looking for a place to stay during the conference and their well decorated apartment was walking distance to much of downtown Atlanta and GSU.

About
Hello! Erin got a job at Airbnb (!) and moved to San Francisco! She just finished up a PhD in economics. 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 and 26 countries. 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, bootcamp (try a class in Piedmont Park while you're here!), spending time at the Chesapeake Bay, and riding his motorcycle. We look forward to sharing our knowledge of Atlanta as well as our condo with you! We hope to see you soon!
