Leon and Derek were great. They were accommodating in every way: last minute reservation, a later check-in and much later return for the night, and they opened their kitchen in the morning for us. The room was very comfortable and clean. I only met the hosts briefly, but they were extremely personable and seemed like very interesting folks. The neighborhood felt safe with a number of amenities very close. My brother and I walked to the East Atlanta Village from the residence and as two middle aged men we felt very safe. I would highly recommend a stay with Derek and Leon.
I had a great time staying at Derek & Leon's townhouse! The neighborhood is nice and there is a Marta stop right on the corner, which I used to get downtown. The house is very clean, the beds are comfortable and it was so nice having a washer, dryer & kitchen to use! I was in Atlanta for a trade show and Leon & Derek went out of their way to meet me downtown and even took me to the grocery store! I definitely will be staying with them next time I am in Atlanta! I need to add....that Leon made the best batch of chili that I have had in years! Thank-you both!
Our stay with Derek and Leon was fantastic. They are very welcoming and caring hosts with an impeccable room. We wholeheartedly recommend staying with them!
We planned to spend our Thanksgiving holiday with my son, daughter-in-law and other family. We chose Derek and Leon's home on the basis of their reviews and location to my son's home. We were very pleased to arrive at our Airbnb destination to find our hosts present to greet us and give us a tour of their lovely home and our accommodations. We were very well cared for. We had constant open communication and daily contact with both Derek and Leon. They were a perfect team in meeting all our needs and answered many questions in regard to the community and city information. Our time with Derek and Leon was wonderful, always asking how they could best accommodate or serve us. We would certainly stay with them and at their lovely home again!
Leon and Derek are incredibly awesome!! They have a wonderful house but more importantly they are ultra friendly, considerate and accommodating. The house is in a safe neighborhood, and there's public transportation right outside the door. The house/bedroom/bathroom are very clean. Leon and Derek are always willing to offer a helping hand, and it is amazing to talk with them. I believe they are the highest-standard hosts you can find in Atlanta or even anywhere else. I'll definitely comeback next time I stay in Atlanta. I insanely recommend this place!!
Derek and Leon were amazing hosts. They were so warm and welcoming our stay felt like a visit with old friends. We were so glad to have met them. The place was very comfortable and conveniently located. We highly recommend staying here and would definitely like to visit Derek and Leon again.
My wife and I could not have had a better time. Derek and Leon have a gorgeous home. They were also very helpful in giving us directions around town and describing local attractions. We would definitely stay at their home again if we ever head back to Atlanta.
Leon and Derek are a young-at-heart couple living in Atlanta, Georgia, educated, professionals and have been partnered for 18 years. In 2013 we celebrated our marriage in Washington, DC. Derek is English by birth and a graduate of Oxford University and on the point of retiring from the corporate office at Coca Cola after nearly 21 years. Derek is also a history buff and enjoys cooking in his spare time. Leon is originally from Oklahma but has lived most of his life in Atlanta, attended college at Northeastern State University in Oklahoma and a Real Estate Consultant (Chapman Hall Realtors). We are both very familiar with Atlanta and many of the surrounding areas.
We enjoy meeting and entertaining people from all walks of life. We enjoy historical sightseeing (UK National Trust members) and appreciate fine dining, being social and traveling. We try to visit family in the UK at least once a year. When visiting the UK, we enjoy side trips either in the UK or some other part of Europe. Italy is one of our favorite destination, where we have good friends in Milan. We are big sports fans, with tennis being our favorite sport. We have gone to three of the Grand Slam Tournaments (Wimbledon, US Open and Roland Garros), last one remaining on bucket list is the Australian Open which we hope to see in 2016.
We really enjoy the concept of airbnb which has made it possible to have met so many interesting and wonderful people. Whether hosting or as guest during our travel with airbnb, we are respectful and very easy going people. We try to go above and beyond in making sure every experience is pleasant as guest or host.
We take pride in providing a clean and comfortable space for all our guest and hopefully you will feel our home is your home during your visit.
