About this listing
Cozy guest room in a quiet condominium neighborhood near I-85 and Druid Hills. Great location. Within 1 mile of our complex are shops and restaurants including La Fitness, CVS, Outback Steakhouse, Longhorn, Publix, Kroger, Starbucks, Super Target, Whole Foods, and MUCH more. We are 2.5 miles from Emory University and just 8-10 min from Lennox Mall, Buckhead, Peidmont Park, the Virginia Highland district, and Midtown/Downtown.
Our guest room features:
a comfy queen sized bed, walk-in closet, full bath, cable tv, wifi, ceiling fan, and private balcony facing a forest.
Other amenities include the use a gym grade treadmill, spin bikes, and weights in our basement, kitchen (toaster, coffee/cappuccino maker, gas stove/oven, and all your cooking needs), washer and dryer, neighborhood tennis courts and swimming pool.
As an FYI- we have two small but quiet dogs and a cat that stays to herself, but want to make potential guests aware in case of allergies.
Marta has a bus line (the number 8 bus line that comes right outside our neighborhood) and goes back and forth from the Brookhaven Marta station and Decatur (there are multiple other bus lines that intersect this route that allow you other bus routes to different parts of Atlanta). Interstate 85 is only a mile and a half away and our exit is literally minutes from downtown. 4.5 miles from the heart of Downtown Decatur, virginia Highlands, and Brookhaven.
We are fortunate in that we have never had a problem with a guest that has required that we make too many rules.
Guests are free to use the common areas outside of the room and basically make themselves at home. No pets (our own pet's would likely be too stressed)
No smoking (unless outside on private deck)
We felt very welcome! They were very friendly and private, and made great suggestions about the area.
I've been very fortunate to stay with Sally and Kevin twice this summer. The second experience was just as excellent as the first one (see below). The room is exactly as decribed and their home is located in a beautiful neighborhood. Sally and Kevin are very welcoming and hospitable and great at providing recommendations regarding the neighborhood as well as the city.
This was my first experience with Airbnb. Kevin and Sally Ann were excellent hosts - very accommodating and friendly. The accommodations were as described, very well appointed and clean. Excellent location with shopping and restaurants nearby.
This was my first airbnb experience and it exceeded my expectations. Kevin and Sally are amazing hosts. Not only did they provide a super clean room and private bathroom including towels, hairdryer and body wash / shampoo, they also took a package for me that I had delivered to their place prior to my arrival. Kevin and Sally have two cute dogs and a beautiful cat who just hung out around them and therefore didn't even come close to my room let alone enter it.
Kevin and Sally are great hosts. They gave me tips on where to go and what to see. The room was clean and comfortable. The area is perfect. Close to everything. Their dogs are sweet too.
