Our safe, convenient location and the charm of our home make this airbnb listing the place for you!
The room is spacious.The house was beautiful and Ann was an excellent host..
My host responded quickly to my airport arrival call and was at home when I arrived. I was shown my room, given my key and was free to come and go as I pleased.
Ann's lovely home is nestled amongst trees and garden space in the Oakhurst area of Decatur. We were able to walk to the local cafe and restaurants easily.
Ann was out of town when we visited, but Bob and their daughter were there to let us in. We enjoyed their dogs and cats (2 each), but they were not a burden if you're not interested.
The room and bed were very comfortable, and the in room mini fridge was a nice feature.
We also appreciated the private driveway as we're traveling musicians with gear.
We recommend staying here, especially if you want to be in the quiet/woodsy side of Atlanta.
We planned to stay with Ann and Bob for a night, but our flight was canceled and we ended up having to find a hotel in Baltimore. Ann and Bob were both very understanding and accommodating, though, and agreed to refund our payment despite the very short cancellation notice. All of my communication with Ann leading up to our planned stay was quick and accommodating. Though we didn't end up getting to see the house, I can say with confidence that Ann and Bob would be great hosts.
Ann was a great host and her house is exactly as described. It is incredibly close to the restaurants and everything thing else that Oakhurst Village has to offer, and the dogs and cats make great company.
Ann was very kind and inviting, and her family accomodating. There was a bit of a scheduling snafu when I came into town, but Ann quickly ironed it out and everything was well. She gave great recommendations for food and drink, and showed me around her very cool chicken coop in the morning!
Our stay was pleasant and quiet. The room was as pictured on the website. Unfortunately, we did not get the chance to meet Ann but her daughter was around to help. We loved the chicken coop and the lovely plants!
What a beautiful home! Although Ann was out of town for the night, her husband was there to greet us when we arrived and provide us with a key so we may come and go as we please. The accommodations were very tidy and spacious and even included a mini refrigerator for any snacks we might have brought in. A total perk was proximity of the home to downtown Decatur which has tons of independent taverns and restaurants. We would definitely stay with Ann's family again if we were traveling through Decatur.
I wish I could have stayed longer with Ann. The neighborhood was cute and the little square down the road had some neat shops. Ann was also very helpful and welcoming.
This was a great place--the listed room was unavailable for the night I needed, but Ann offered her daughter's room instead. Everything was as described.
