About this listing
Very Convenient Location!!! Adorable Vintage Cottage. 3 minute walk from the Oakland City Marta Station. 2 bedooms/1 and 1/2 baths. One bedroom has a Queen bed and the other bedroom has a King bed, both are very comfortable, dressed in quality linens, and have an en-suite sink/vanity. There is also a 2 single bed semi-private sleeping pod enclosed with floor to ceiling curtains. It's a very clean, organized, and tidy 1000 square feet home, with high ceilings, hardwood floors, a gas fireplace, and loads of character. There is a beautiful, upscale kitchen available and a private back deck and huge yard. Pets may be allowed with prior arrangements. A very convenient location halfway between the airport and downtown. This intown working class/lower income neighborhood is the up and coming area of Sylvan Hills. The vibe is inner city mixed with a little bohemian, a great place to stay if you want to experience the real Dirty South and real ATLiens, as it is not on the well worn path of tourists. Please be sure you (and everyone else in your group) are comfortable staying in an inner-city low income neighborhood, as you may encounter some run down and boarded up homes, as well as many pedestrians, as most residents rely on public transportation. Our home is close to the Marta station, which makes it very convenient, but also means there is a good bit of foot traffic, and in spite of the rundown appearance of some of the homes, locals are typically very friendly, welcoming, and eager to help out in times of need.. Great spot for those wanting a convenient place to rest on a layover/connection or needing to get downtown easily for Business/Conventions/Gift Mart/GSU/Ga Tech/GA Dome Event/Midtown/World Congress Center/Philips Arena.

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.
