Description

The space

This charming, historic bungalow is located in the up and coming inner city neighborhood of Capitol View/Sylvan Hills (also known affectionately by local musical artists such as Outkast - S.W.A.T.S., just a 3 minute walk to Marta ( Oakland City Station, 3 stops south of downtown). Driving? We am just 15 minutes north of the airport and 5 minutes south if downtown. Also super convenient to I-75/I-85 and I-20. Relax and recharge in this well appointed private room with a super comfortable bed dressed in quality cotton linens, spa robe and slippers. Guests enjoy the convenience of a having their very own vanity pedestal sink in each of the private bedrooms, while the main bathrooms are shared. Free parking, wifi,and laundry are always available to guests. The combination of high ceilings, spacious airy rooms, original architectural details, clean modern designs mixed with antiques, hand crafted items, natural elements, and hardwood floors. I am easy going, really enjoy hosting and just want every guest to have the best experience possible. There are 3 large, sweet, clean and extremely cute and friendly dogs and charming young gentleman named Forrest that help me co-host. I have a few houses that I spend my time between, so when booking, you will be staying at one of them, all have the same general amenities and decor.
Neighborhood is strictly residential, so you won't find any shops or cafes within walking distance, but to hop on Marta is so convenient. We do have a great Jamaican restaurant JamRock, that delivers(usually) and also yummy pizza from Bakari's

Guest access

free WIFI, backyard with horseshoes, grill,hammock, veggie and herb garden, dogs for walking, 2 bikes, and nice kitchen. Free street parking all the time.

The neighborhood

Have lived in the neighborhood since 1999. Love how undeveloped it is. No traffic jams, no one is in a hurry, people take time to say hello and chat for a bit. It's old school, dirty south, although gentrification is surely inevitable :( since it's so close to downtown/MARTA/airport/highways, and the housing stock is desirable, comprised of mainly Craftsman Bungalows built in the 20's and 30's. Locals are super friendly and have so much love in their hearts, even though most live a very hard life, just struggling to make ends meet. Folks are just keepin it real around here, SO opposite of the upscale areas like Buckhead.

Getting around

From the Oakland City Marta Station, exit the Lee St side. Walk though the bus area and out the pedestrian gate. Cross over Lee St, and you will find yourself walking east on Dill Ave. Our house is the first on the left, should be a few cars, maybe an old Ford pick up, a very old yellow Mercedes.

Easy going and creative....enjoy cooking, entertaining, local, organic food, yoga, good wine, all things vintage, history, architectural preservation, lots of good music, art, film, animals, nature, sailing, the ocean, traveling, calm and tranquil spaces, and try to find beauty in all things. Love to have fun and not take life too seriously. Enjoy hosting and meeting new friends from all cultures and backgrounds and don't really follow the mainstream of American culture at all. Love to buy houses and fix them up. Have quite a few places where we host guests and try to be as accommodating as possible. When staying in a private room, you will be in a room in one of our houses, most likely, there will be a couple of canine co-hosts in the house as well, so loving dogs is a must! Our properties are in lower income, inner city neighborhoods where real, local ATLiens live. You won't see many tourists around, mostly, just typical working class folks who love to sit on the front porch and unwind as part of Southern culture. We always say hello to each other in passing, so please be friendly and observe our friendly custom when encountering locals, they will appreciate the gesture. Locals typically enjoy meeting and helping out-of-towners. Because we are in a lower income, less traveled neighborhood, we can offer stylish, affordable accommodations to travelers on a budget. Also, for travelers relying on public transportation, we are on the Marta line conveniently situated halfway between the Airport and downtown. The rates are very reasonable and not subject to negotiation. Rates, terms, and policies are fixed and applied equally to all guests. We look forward to hosting you one day soon.
