Walkable and close to everything

House - Private room · Monroe Dr, Atlanta, GA 30324, United States
Phillip

Our home for lack of a better term, is a mini-mansion, and is conveniently located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta. We rent three of our five bedrooms out on this site, so be sure to check out the other two listings. Each bedroom is a queen suite with a private bath. The house was custom built and is richly appointed with custom furnishings, oil paintings, hardwood floors, and 10 foot ceilings.

We live in a great neighborhood that any guest would feel at home in. There's over a half dozen restaurants within a 10 minute walk.

Our home is located in a very safe neighborhood in Atlanta. I have no reservations walking back home after a late (email hidden) and luckily there are more than a half dozen within walking distance of the house.

It's an easy 20 minute drive from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport to our house. Although we're not near a MARTA train station, we are located directly on the bus line and convenient to both the Midtown and Lindbergh stations.

We'd love for you to stay with us and enjoy some of Atlanta's finest southern hospitality.

Your host, Phillip

  • As listed in the other reviews, this house is huge and gorgeous. The room is large, comfortable, clean, and quiet. We especially enjoyed that the area is so walkable. Booking with Phillip was easy and he was good about responding to emails.

    Phillip and Kyle were out of town the weekend we came. I think that future visitors might want to know that there is more than just one couple living in this home. We encountered 3 other folks, one of which told us that he isn't sure exactly who lives there as "there are lots of people that come and go." We did not feel unsafe at any time, but when considering an airbnb where we rent only a room inside someone's home (especially as women), it is nice to know who will be there and that they are vouched for.

  • It was so much fun! Phillip is hilarious and so much welcoming. He gives great tips about places to visit in the neighbourhood. The house itself is a castle. Beautiful. It's super clean, very comfortable and has its unique charm. Besides, it's opposite a shopping centre. Highly recommended! If only I could only turn back and teleport myself back to Phillip's place right now. Well, next year ;)

  • What can I say: I want to live at Monrovia! It's gorgeous and Philip is a lovely host. His advice was invaluable and I couldn't wait to tell him what I got up to each day. The only downside was having to go back to my less -exquisite home.

  • Very nice. Comfortable bed (queen) in a large room with 12' ceilings (at least). Bath was perfect and everything was spotless. Great location. Phillip was accommodating and very agreeable.

  • The house and the room was spacious, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. The room had a private bathroom. It is located within walking distance to stores and shops and is in a nice area. Phillip and Kyle were very welcoming and friendly.

  • As Phillip says in the review, this is a mini-mansion, beautifully furnished with the feel of a French country manor. The location is ideal - plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. I arrived late at night and there was no more comforting sight than the bed which greeted me. Enjoyed using Phillip's house as a base for exploring - Piedmont Park was close by and perfect for jogging, the Ponce de Leon, East Atlanta and Decatur Square were easy car journeys away. I met Phillip when he came back from vacation and he extremely affable and welcoming.

  • Phillip was an amazing host! The house and the room are fantastic (very clean, nice furniture, very spacious, comfortable bed, etc.) and located in a beautiful neighborhood. I would stay here again anytime.

  • My stay at Phillip and Kyle's place was fantastic. Their house is amazing. So large, yet still feels very warm and homely. The room was utterly luxurious, with the huge, comfortable bed and private bathroom making me feel very spoiled.
    Having spent several weeks on the road eating restaurant food and a week at Burning Man eating packaged food, it was a treat to be able to use Phillip's kitchen to cook up a hearty meal of fresh meat & vegetables.
    Everything I needed was within easy reach - two large grocery stores right across the road, a fabulous BBQ ribs joint about 10 minutes walk away, and other restaurants and the fabulous Piedmont park within walking distance.
    Being in town for business, the house had everything I could want; very fast, reliable internet, laundry & ironing facilities, and desk space should I have needed it.
    I hope to be able to stay with Phillip again when I next visit Atlanta.

About
A fun loving guy here, not pretentious in the least. There's no denying that we live in a mansion. Our home has 5 bedrooms, 9 baths, a 1,500 sq ft studio apartment in the attic and a home theatre in the basement. I'd say that qualifies as a mansion, well mini-mansion. We heard about airbnb and thought what a great idea. While I enjoy the extra income this is definitely more of a novelty for Kyle. What a great way to meet new and interesting people. I work at what is undeniably "The wolds busiest airport". I'm a project manager for ExpressJet Airlines and have been in the aviation industry for the last 10 years. I'm also the father of three totally amazing fourteen year old boys. When I'm not at home in Midtown, I am down in the country with my kiddo's and giving their Mother a much needed break.
