About this listing
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.**)
BEFORE YOU BOOK/INQUIRE:

-- 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!) =)

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.

Absolutely great condo, couldn't ask for anything better. We were in town to watch the Braves and it's an easy drive back and forth. Didn't meet Ben or Erin but they were completely organized so checkin was easy.
The apartment was everything we imagined! We loved the decor, urban vibe, and the atmosphere of the place. It was just a welcoming feeling the moment we first opened the door. The location is perfectly centered around all of Atlanta's main attractions which was great! Overall it was an amazing experience!
We really enjoyed our stay at Ben & Erin's condo. It was as described in the material, very clean, with nice amenities, everything you would want for a short stay away from home. the pool was great, the laundry room downstairs was very clean. The location was perfect, close to downtown and lots of restaurants within walking distance. We had a small issue with the TV on the first day and Ben was there very promptly to resolve it. This was our first stay at an Airbnb location and we will surely use this service again.
The condo was exactly as described and oh so comfortable! The location is great -- close to downtown, easily accessible, and safe. The check-in / check-out process was great. We stayed here with our toddler which worked great as there is a separate "room" for her. Everything was clean and in working order. Detailed information about the condo was provided prior to our stay. We will absolutely stay here again if we end up in Atlanta!
This place was as clean and organized as described by the host. It was very definitely spotless, as well as comfortable. My parents and I really enjoyed our stay at this place.
The location was pretty awesome. it was located right next to the downtown, easily accessible to downtown tourist attractions, like CNN, World of Coca-cola, aquarium, and etc. Also, it's neighborhood seems to be very safe.
One of our favorite AirBNB experiences! The apartment was so cozy and nicely furnished. My family was so comfortable there that I often forgot that I was not at home. We had our car with us and really appreciated the nearby designated parking spot. It was no more than a 10-15 drive to most tourist locations. It was the perfect set up for my husband, me, and our baby. Our family was so comfortable there that we will forever remember fondly that this was where our 2 month old baby started sleeping through the night!

About the Host, Ben And Erin
Erin got a job at Airbnb (!) and moved to San Francisco! She completed a PhD in economics in 2012. Ben earned an MA in applied linguistics in 2013 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, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, and Atlanta. 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!
