About this listing
One of 4 private rooms in beautiful historic home. Just 2 blocks to Oakland City Marta station to catch metro. Located halfway between downtown and airport. Perfect for downtown conferences/events. Tranquil guest house with all the creature comforts.
NO CAR NEEDED......
All rooms are large with a comfortable and well dressed either Queen or King sized bed, desk, hooks, mirror, closet, and en-suite sink/vanity. Perfect for just a night passing through Atlanta (only 4 quick stops from the Airport, then a 3 minute walk to the house) or even for an extended stay (so close to downtown) All 5 Private rooms are on the main level of this large vintage home and all have en suite vanities sinks for washing up, shaving, brushing teeth, etc... and there are also 2 full bathrooms on the main level. Downstairs is the Garden level, where we stay along with the Crash Pad guests, and also where the laundry, two more bathrooms, another kitchen, and of course access to the garden can be found.
The house....vintage bungalow, built in 1925. Original details such as hardwood floors, high ceilings, big original windows, glass door knobs, etc...tastefully furnished with vintage housewares mixed with modern and elements of nature. Full kitchen available to guests, as well as WIFI and laundry facilities. Guests are usually well traveled, friendly, educated, interesting to chat with, and in the habit of good house sharing etiquette. Sorry, no children or pets allowed. But we have 3 dogs here. They mostly stay downstairs with us, out back, or in the kitchen.
The neighborhood...Capitol View/Sylvan Hills, an up and coming community close to downtown. It's a residential neighborhood comprised of single family homes and has a bohemian inner city vibe. You won't encounter many tourists here, no trendy shops or cafes, just a little mimi mart carrying convenience items for local, lower income, working class ATLiens. Beautiful Perkerson Park is nearby (5 minute walk) with tennis courts, basketball, frisbee golf course, running track with workout stations, and plenty of beautiful open space.
Pretty much the whole house, except the other guest rooms, of course.
Interaction with Guests
There is usually a host staying at the property, and always available on the Airbnb thread.
Other Things to Note
Check in starts at 3 PM, and you must schedule a time to meet(after 3 PM) for check in. Do not just show up at the house unannounced, because there may not be anyone there to receive you. This is not a hotel. There aren't many shops or restaurants nearby, so for shopping and eating, you will most likely need to either take Marta or drive 10 to 15 minutes.
