The Space

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.

Getting around

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Kevin and Sally's home was beautiful! It was exactly like you see in the pictures! The room was cozy, clean, and had a great view. They were both very sweet and took good care of us. They kept water bottles and some snacks for us in the room and also recommended things to do in the city. Their house is in a lovely location but is a little far from the metro, though there is a bus stop close by. Kevin was very sweet and he dropped us to the metro stop when we were going to the downtown area and he also dropped us early morning to the megabus bus stop. Overall, I'd highly recommend them and would love to stay with them again!

  • Kevin and Sally were great, as was their place. ..spacious room, comfortable bed, private bath, deck! Good coffee, polite pets. Safe, wooded area.

    I walked to Emory area without too much effort. Public transport can shorten that walk considerably.

  • I had the most wonderful southern welcome and stay with Kevin and Sally Ann last week. It was too short, but Kevin was quick to give me advise on where to eat and what to see while I was in town. Their home is easy to find, and is very, very comfortable. They even had snacks and water bottles in my room for me. I enjoyed our short conversations and felt like I was leaving as friends. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if I'm ever in the area.

  • Always my favorite place to stay in Atlanta -- which I've done at least 5 times now. Kevin and Sally are wonderful hosts and their condo is delightful, with a great guest bedroom with patio.
    The location couldn't be more central within Atlanta, offering easy access to all parts of town. Plus there are tons of stores and restaurants very close by.

  • Had a short but great time. Landed late and Kevin was there to receive me. He is a great host and even dropped me at my meeting place the next day morning. The room is cosy and nice and overall the stay was great though just one night

  • We had a fantastic time with Kevin & sally in atlanta...As part of our honeymoon roadtrip though the entire US Atlanta was one of our first stops on the route and it gave us just the motivation we needed...they live in a beautiful community with pool and a lot of trees.Kevin was super responsive during the entire booking process.and sally was so sweet when we got there.we were greeted like we know them for years.The room is perfect.private bathroom and shower.can you ask for more? And also a huge balcony with seating and beautiful nature view.They answered all our touristquestion and were extremely helpful.The 2 dogs were sweet and kevin and sally made sure they wouldn't bother us .even though they are so nice they couldnt bother anyone.the cat we seen once but that was it.we would definitely return whenever back in atlanta....Hope all the airbnb work out like this on our trip.

  • I have stayed with Kevin & Sally Ann numerous times over the course of several years now and it's always like returning to a friend's house. The bedroom is perfect and has everything you need. They are great hosts! The location is especially good, with easy access to all parts of the city either by surface streets or highway. There are also lots of amenities very close by -- shops, restaurants, cafes and so forth.

  • Kevin and Sally Ann are wonderful hosts! We truly enjoyed staying with them. Their house is absolutely beautiful and in a great location to Emory and the Atlanta VA, as well as downtown Decatur and a short drive to I-85. I am a soon-to-be first year podiatry (email hidden) and my husband and I were in town for the weekend trying to find a house/condo (which we did!) for the next three years. The Pattons' house was such a nice retreat to come home to after a long day of house hunting. The balcony is a wonderful area to relax and enjoy a glass of wine or a beer. We stayed in Atlanta for a month in September 2013 and had a really rough experience with a different airbnb couple. I wish we had known about Kevin and Sally Ann at that time! I'm sure our experience would have been exponentially different. I would recommend this place for any one needing housing in the area. I have recommended it to other podiatry students who are doing a month long (email hidden) or Dekalb Medical Center. Also, they made us breakfast our last morning there and it was awesome! Thanks for making our stay so great!

  • I could not have asked for better hosts than Kevin and Sally. This was my first time doing airbnb and I am very happy that I did. The place was beautiful and spotless. Perfect location as well! The bed was very comfortable and a full bathroom was attached. They have the two cutest dogs who are very well behaved. Kevin and Sally were so accommodating, especially to my crazy schedule at Emory University. I would absolutely stay there again and I am so happy to have met this wonderful couple!

  • What a great experience this was! Kevin was super-responsive to all my requests, and Sally made me feel very comfortable as a guest in their home. They are very interesting people and enjoyable to talk to. Their room with private bath and balcony was ideal for my purpose, a peaceful and convenient place to lay my head each night during my visit to see my daughter at Emory. Highly recommend, and would stay with them again in a heartbeat!
