Spacious and comfortable guest suite in cute intown neighborhood. 20 minutes or less to airport, downtown, stone mountain, midtown, Decatur. Easy walk to shops, restaurants, and parks.

The Space

Lower level of home converted to private guest suite including bedroom, living room, kitchenette, and full bathroom. Kitchenette includes a microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker, electric kettle, and full set of dishes and silverware. Living room has a large screen TV, DVD player (NO CABLE), queen sized sofa bed, and WiFi access. Queen sized bed in bedroom. Guest suite has a separate entrance with off street parking as well as a separate heating and cooling system. Both the living room and bedroom have ceiling fans.

Home is located in the Kirkwood neighborhood and is a short walk to area restaurants, library, and a lovely park with playground. This suite is ideal for families traveling with young children. We have a travel crib available as well toys and games for young children.

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.

There is a $10 per person charge for more than two adults. 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.

The Neighborhood

Kirkwood is an up and coming neighborhood with a handful of new establishments (including a Mexican restaurant, coffee shop and craft beer bar, and a brunch & lunch cafe). Just of I20, Kirkwood is easily accessible from the highways and you can get to most other Atlanta neighborhoods within 20 minutes.

Getting around

It is definitely recommended to have a car. We are not in easy walking distance of a MARTA station.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • I regret that we never met the Gellers, but we had no problems. The neighborhood seems quiet and stable, and the unit is spacious and clean. It's pretty close to Emory University. We appreciated the orange juice and bananas. The kitchenette has fridge and microwave and coffee maker, but no other cooking facilities.

  • My husband and I just got back from a one-week stay in the Geller apartment. We can't say enough about the whole experience. The apartment is just as pictured and immaculately clean. Plenty of room and very comfortable. The small fridge was stocked with beverages and there were muffins, bananas, and coffee to get us started. Very thoughtful and generous! Wifi worked well. A nice touch for families was a bookcase filled with games, books, and toys. Our 17-month old grandson came to visit one day and didn't want to leave! The location was perfect for us. Private parking for our car, and the center of Kirkwood is in walking distance. A comprehensive list of things to do and places to eat in the area was a nice touch. Dana is lovely and very organized and responsive. Her two girls are adorable. We are hoping to make this our "go-to" spot when we are visiting our daughter from New York. Have used Airbnb before but this time was a far superior experience. Highly recommended.

  • If you are looking for a comfortable, spacious, private and well equipped apartment to stay at in Atlanta, this is the right place for you. It is within walking distance to many restaurants and stores. Dana and family are very welcoming and were very helpful. The muffins were delicious! We would definitely stay again!

  • This guest suite was ideal! It looks as it appears in the photos and was spotless! Dana is friendly and approachable and I would gladly stay there again!

  • A convenient location, nice neighborhood, comfortable bed. Dana was very prompt in her replies to questions. Probably better for shorter stays as the kitchen is really just a sink, microwave, and small fridge. However, Dana had muffins and fruit, juice, water, tea, coffee - everything you'd need for a quick breakfast right there. It's a very nice place, just a bit noisy in the mornings as you are right below the main floor of a family with kids. Still, for a short stay I'd certainly consider coming back, particularly for the value/price it's a bargain.

  • This was a great first place for us to stay on our US road trip. Getting into Atlanta from London and having some nice clean space to explore from and relax was wonderful. Dana had kindly provided some fruit, drink and muffins to start our days off. Nearby Decatur and little five PTs are great to explore. Would highly recommend

  • Before we even got there Dana sent us information about the appartement and the neighborhood which was helping us during our stay to find things easily like a grocery store. We had a major problem with our car on our way to Atlanta. Dana helped us a lot. She let us use her phone to make a phone call as well as a thing to check the tire pressure. She made sure we're okay. During our stay we had a lot of questions. Dana always responded quickly.
    The appartement was georgous. We felt like home. It was neat and clean and we were welcomed with muffins and soft drinks. Everything was great so we felt very comfortable. The basement is sound proofed and therefore it was quiet at all times. We highly recommend Dana as a host!!!

  • We stayed at the Geller's house in a beautifully furnished and modern suite. It had everything we needed to be fully comfortable during our stay. The host provided complimentary snacks and coffee for our stay which was a really nice touch. We definitive recommend staying with the Gellers.

    April 2014
  • We stayed at Dana's place for five nights and really liked it. The guest suite was impeccably clean! And the complimentary beverages and snacks were really nice. A lot of things are reachable within ten minutes driving which was really nice. We highly recommend to stay here.

I am currently a stay at home mom with two young children. Before my daughter was born I was an elementary school teacher. I taught English as a second language and have always enjoyed traveling and meeting people from around the world. My husband, Mike, is a physics professor at the University of Georgia. We have always enjoyed traveling together and have found renting homes to be an interesting and affordable way to do so. Mike and I enjoy spending as much time outdoors as possible. We have recently taken up gardening as a family hobby. We love cooking and sharing meals with friends. We would like to help make your stay in Atlanta as comfortable as possible. We have done a good bit of traveling with our daughter and understand the needs of a family away from home.
