Derek and Leon we're the best! They made sure that I was comfortable. They are super nice and I am so glad that they opened their home to me. Such a beautiful and peaceful home. It was my first airbnb experience and my first trip to Atlanta. I took all of their suggestions for places to go and restaurants to try and i was never disappointed. The neighborhood is wonderful. I will be sure to stay with them when I am Atlanta.
Derek and Leon were incredibly welcoming and accommodating during my stay! Their home was comfortable and had everything I needed and more. They were great about answering any questions I had about the area and when I needed an umbrella for the day, for example, the didn't hesitate to lend me one. The neighborhood was also perfect. There is a great coffee shop around the corner as well as lots of cute shopping and restaurants less than a mile away.
Derek and Leon were extremely welcoming and accommodating! The neighborhood was very nice and we felt safe. The house easily accommodated the two of us and we were pleased with the amenities that were offered to us. Derek and Leon were extremely friendly and I definitely recommend staying with them if you're visiting Atlanta.
Our stay with Derek and Leon was a perfect airbnb experience. Their house is clean, quiet, and comfortable, and they are excellent hosts and just really nice guys. I could go on but with 75 great reviews before us you probably get they point...
This was my very first Airbnb stay and I just don't believe it could have been any better.:). Derek and Leon made me feel welcome in their lovely home.
These two gentlemen are gracious, unassuming hosts....allowing me my alone time but also inviting me for a glass of wine and conversation.
Derek even went out of his way to drive me to a local hospital where I was taking a class... so I wouldn't have to worry about transportation in a new city )
The room I stayed in was quite comfortable and lovely.
Please don't hesitate to stay here
Derek and Leon were both welcoming and made Rhiana and I feel very safe in their home. Their home is beautiful and pretty amazing. The only regret I have is that we were there for a short weekend so could not conversate longer. Would definitely stay here again if given the chance.
I didn't get to meet Derek and Leon, but even so, they were welcoming and made me feel right at home! I had my own bedroom and bathroom which was a huge plus for me. They were very generous and hospitable as they granted guests full access to their refrigerator, kitchen, mini-fridge, and entertainment center. I interacted mostly with their house sitter since they were out of town, and she was super friendly and always went above and beyond to answer any of my questions. The room and bathroom were very clean and the location was a nice, quiet neighborhood which was a solace from the rest of Atlanta. I felt very safe. I really enjoyed my stay here and have already recommended it to friends.
