About this listing
The House: 1920s brick bungalow. Enjoy spending time on the front porch, screened in back porch or out on the patio where you can visit with my chickens: BokBok, Peck, and NiNi. There's also a living room, dining room and kitchen, so make yourself at home!
Your Room: Large bedroom that feels like a quaint bed and breakfast. Queen size bed and sitting area. Right across the hall from the bathroom. Clean towels, toiletries and wifi provided.
The Neighborhood: Walking distance from East Atlanta Village which boasts a coffee shop, library, bookstore, post office, and a number of bars and restaurants, including two taco joints, a Vietnamese restaurant, the Earl (indy music venue), My Sister's Room (lesbian bar), Mary's (gay bar), Midway (sports bar), and a weekly farmers market. And a short drive to some awesome Thai food, the best ice cream in Atlanta, and the Starlight Drive-In. Just off of 1-20 and Moreland Ave. Very accessible to the rest of the city by car. About a mile south of Little 5 Points. (Note: if you look at the "street view" it appears that i live on an exit ramp to the highway -- i do not)
Tea and coffee are on hand. Please let me know if you'd like breakfast while you're here.
No smoking inside.
Amanda made us feel welcome from the start by giving us some complimentary drinks upon our arrival and giving us some tips about how to handle Dragon*Con, which is what we were in town to attend. Her place was pretty clean - the bathroom was small and shared but had everything you need in it. The furniture throughout the home is eclectic and cool. Her chickens' eggs were yummy and I enjoyed my time there! Thanks.
Amanda was great to work with. Easy communication and very flexible as we figured out my arrival time. Once we said hello and I got the lay of the land, she left for the weekend so I didn't get to see much of her. But the place was clean and comfortable. The neighborhood was safe and a great selection of restaurants, bars and coffee shops within a few blocks. She had a little 'zine with a map to show some of the highlights.
Amanda had arranged for a neighbor to take care of the chickens but I did have a chance to let them out and say hello.
I'd definitely recommend this place.
Amanda's place was exactly as described, and Amanda is a fantastic host! She prepared breakfast for me one morning, and took care of my gluten allergy.
I felt super comfortable at her place and around her. She was also super helpful in making sure I was situated in the city, and knew how to get to where my work meeting would be the next morning.
I would definitely stay here again!
Where to begin? We had a super fantastic time with Amanda (and her friends). We were given ice cream on arrival, which is always a positive. We were treated instantly as friends, not just guests. Good conversation, good people and a lovely house. East Atlanta is a very cool place to stay if you are into yknow... Being cool. Amanda MADE Atlanta for us, seriously.
We had a truly great time with Amanda in Atlanta. We really cannot recommend her beautiful home enough. The area is cool with loads of nearby pubs and restaurants within walking distance. Amanda's recommendations about where to go and what to do were brilliant. We both felt that we got to see Atlanta in all its technicolor brilliance. On a personal note Amanda made us feel so very welcome that we decided to stay an extra night! Thank you so much again!
Amanda has a lovely home. She has some gorgeous antique furnishings in the bedroom including an iron bed and two velvet chairs. Her home is clean and well organized. The bed hand lots of yummy pillows and coverings, including a nice comforter and smooth sheets. A basket of clean, fluffy towels and washrags was on the dresser
Amanda's home was conveniently located in that it was a little over a block off a major exit to the freeway and was near to public transit.
Amanda was a charming host with whom I shared some great conversations and even some friend contacts! Small world but a fun one in Atlanta
Amanda was really hospitable and had some awesome food suggestions. We had to leave a day early but we enjoyed staying in her cute home. It was in a great location and close by to everything we wanted to do.
About the Host, Amanda
Hi. i'm Amanda. I moved back to Atlanta in 2009 and I love it here. So I'm happy to share recommendations of where to eat and what to do. In fact, I wrote a mini-zine about my neighborhood, East Atlanta Village, and it's yours when you stay with me.
My friend, Barbara, and I use to bake pies while watching Anne of Green Gables on public television and talk about the bed & breakfast we would open one day. I've lost touch with Barbara, but airbnb has given me the opportunity to live out my dream of having a b&b in my spare time.
