About this listing
Newly-constructed apartment in a detached carriage house on a quiet residential street in Midtown Atlanta. Only a few walkable blocks from Piedmont Park, fine dining, and nightlife. Also walkable to MARTA and other public transportation.
Modern feel in a carriage house apartment with a full kitchen built in 2014 to look like the 1920's craftsman-style house it sits right behind.
The apartment is open and airy, with a wooden divider between the bedroom and living room. The bedroom with its queen-sized bed looks over a secluded garden that is also part of the property. Wireless internet is available, as is a large flat-screen TV with digital cable and HBO. The efficiency kitchen, which includes a stove, microwave, dishwasher, and full-size refrigerator, comes equipped with pots, pans, a coffeemaker, plates, glasses, and utensils. Downstairs there is a washer and dryer which you may use at no additional cost; there is also an iron and ironing board.
Aside from access to the best part of Atlanta, guest will also have access to a spacious patio with outdoor seating and a firepit. Behind this is a garden with a small semi-private seating area.
Interaction with Guests
The property is in the historic and picturesque Atlanta neighborhood of Midtown. The street itself is quiet but within a five minute walk you will find high rises with shopping, fine dining, and a bustling nightlife.
Two blocks away is Piedmont Park, the beautiful "Central Park" of Atlanta. There are tennis courts, a pool, and plenty of space for running, biking, and playing field sports. Many events take place in the park including concerts, the Dogwood Festival, Music Midtown, and the Jazz Festival. The Botanical Gardens, adjacent to the park, also hosts events and concerts.
Nearby and within walking distance are other Atlanta landmarks such as the Georgian Terrace Hotel, Margaret Mitchell House, Fox Theatre, and Mary Mac's Tearoom. A movie theater, Midtown Arts Cinema, is about a 5 minute walk away, as are other conveniences in the same shopping center including Trader Joe's, Starbucks, and restaurants ("Apres Diem" highly recommended).
Within a ten minute walk is the Midtown MARTA train station. The train runs directly to and from the airport (about a 20-30 min ride).
The property is close to major streets and highways; street parking is free and available (except when events are in Piedmont park).
No loud music (use best judgment). Damage must be paid for. Non-smoking inside. Please keep it as clean as possible. Not responsible for personal property of guest (don't leave valuables in plain view in your car).
Had a really good time in Jesse's apartment in Midtown. Great location, spacious layout, with a functional kitchen and mini living room. Overall would definitely recommend to others. Also Jesse was very helpful and friendly throughout.
We were very happy with our carriage house in Atlanta. Jesse had everything ready for us so we had no problems with access even at our late arrival.
The apt was very comfortable, well designed and a lovely neighborhood .
We would come back in a heartbeat.
My experience at Jesse's carriage house was as wonderful as the last time. I would stay here for every Atlanta visit if it were available. There is nothing more one could need while staying here, it's perfect (although I hate to share this with everyone) and I love the unit, Jesse's kindness and responsiveness and the location! You can't go wrong staying here but hopefully you won't so I can book when visiting Atlanta ;) Just kidding, it's absolutely perfect in every way!!!!
The little apartment Jesse has built in his new garage is very nicely appointed and finished. It has a small kitchen, a screened sleeping area and living room, bath with extra large shower. It's very private, with a separate entrance. On street parking was easy. The neighborhood is beautiful, a short walk to Piedmont Park, and a different short walk to Trader Joes and several good places to eat. Jess was very welcoming. He has provided for a key so you can arrive anytime. There was unfortunately some construction that Jesse had to do while we were there which was an inconvenience but he left us a bottle of wine as a token, a very nice gesture. We will come back. We have a child at school in Atlanta and Jesse's will be our go-to place.
This place is unbelievable! Walking distance to Piedmont Park and restaurants in Midtown, which is a huge plus for us as we love to walk everywhere. The apartment is absolutely adorable inside, nice little kitchen with all the amenities, washer & dryer, very nice, comfortable bed, etc. Will definitely book again! Thanks Jesse!
Jesse made us feel welcome in many ways. He is quick to respond to email, made it super easy to get into our place even tho he was still at work. His garden is lovely, and were it warmer, I'd have had our kids over to sit in it and have a glass of wine!
Neighborhood is lovely, easy walking to Trader Joes for supplies, a good Indian restaurant for eat in or take out and of course, Atlanta's prized Piedmont park is virtually next door for leisurely walks or a visit to a superb botanical garden.
