We are very "family friendly" as we are a family with young children. You may hear footsteps or other sounds coming from our two young, active daughters. If you are looking for complete silence, we may not be the best fit for you.

The East Lake YMCA (large, new, and well kept facility) is just minutes away, and is within walking distance.

Home is located in a safe neighborhood minutes away from freeway access. We are about 15 minutes to downtown Atlanta, 20 minutes to the airport, and 5-10 minutes to Decatur.

If you are traveling with children under 12 years old, please indicate that you are two on the reservation form, and explain to me in your message how many children are in your party. There is no additional fee for children under 12 years old.

This is a smoke free and pet free home.

Guest access

Guests have access to the lower level suite of the home. This includes a private living room (with sofa bed), kitchenette, bedroom, and full bathroom. Guests also have access to the large backyard, which is particularly nice for families with young children.

Interaction with guests

Usually I am home to meet guests when they arrive. After that, guests come and go as they please through a private entrance and I rarely see them. Guests definitely have as much privacy as they want.

Do not flush feminine hygiene products down the toilet. The toilet has a special pump, and these products will damage the pump, causing very costly repairs for us.
Turn off AC and lights if you will be gone for most of the day. Running an additional AC unit is costly, and by turning it off when not in use you will help me to keep the price low.

I had a great stay! This was everything I could ask for in my first Airbnb. The place was clean and had all the amenities I could ask for! Dana was a great host. Check-in and check-out was super simple and I really appreciated that she gave me a walkthrough of the place when I first arrived. She always responded quickly to text messages, which was a big plus! I would most definitely recommend this place.

Dana's place was the perfect spot for our family and our needs. We used Dana's spot as a "homebase" as we visited family. It was a very family friendly spot in a family friendly neighborhood--playground nearby, restaurants, etc. You could walk easily to "downtown" Kirkwood and "downtown"Oakhurst. The space was clean and comfortable. We were allowed to park off-street behind the house allowing easy access to get in/out. I loved that there was a lock/code-panel to get in! (No worrying about keys/keeping track of keys). Dana was an attentive and thoughtful host! She had muffins, fruit and drinks in the kitchen--as well as coffee! A detailed information sheet was provided regarding area attractions which was a nice touch.

Dana, My flight landed early and you made everything so warm and cozy when we arrived for our stay. Your guest suite was impeccably clean, chic, and modern. Your property is so (URL HIDDEN) excellent surprise. And felt so much like home. You provided so many amenities which were a huge help (thank you). It was my first visit to Georgia, and you were a tremendous help providing Maps along with a list of nearby things to do including parks, recreation, attractions & restaurants. We played board games for hours and enjoyed delicious snacks. We visited some amazing we went to the Georgia Aquarium was only a 15 minute drive. Thank you & your family for creating a family oriented home away from home in Atlanta. We enjoyed it so much. And we're excited about staying again!

This was my first time staying with a place listed on Airbnb - and was not at all disappointed. The place is located in such great neighborhood and we enjoyed a few of the local eateries nearby. Check-in was easy and we were welcomed with fruit and cold drinks in the fridge when we arrived. We loved staying here and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a nice quiet place to stay. You will have your own parking space. Plenty of toys for young toddlers - and the couch in the living area is quite comfortable to sleep on. Bed in bedroom also very comfortable. What a wonderful place to unwind and relax after a long day visiting the tourist sights of Atlanta. Would recommend to anyone and we ourselves hope to return again soon. Dana was so awesome when we met her - and her daughter so adorable. Can't go wrong with this place so book early!

My mom and I had a wonderful stay. The suite is even better than the pictures, very clean and came fully stocked. I was impressed by the attention to detail - including bananas and muffins in the morning! Beautiful neighborhood in a convenient location. Dana was very kind, and welcomed us into her home. My one comment is that (as the description notes) this may not be the place for late risers, as the family can be heard overhead. But truly an excellent stay in a great suite - thank you!

This Airbnb was perfect for my family and I. The space was exactly how it is described. It was very clean and comfortable. It has a spacious living room with a kitchen off to the side that included a microwave, toaster, sink, small fridge and dishes/silverware if needed. The separate bed room provided a very comfortable bed. My oldest son slept on the pull out sectional in the living room and said it was very comfortable too. I was traveling alone with my two sons, so I wanted to make sure I was in a safe neighborhood. This Airbnb is in a great location and we felt very safe during our stay. A plus was the off street parking right at the entrance to the space. There is plenty of good eating destinations close by that you can walk to. Dana was very nice and welcomed us when we arrived.
