About This Listing
No Car Needed!!!! Steps from Oakland City Marta Station. Located between airport and downtown on metro line.
NO CAR NEEDED......
The room....... EXTREMELY comfortable and well dressed bed, desk, and vintage furnishing make for a perfect place to rest and rejuvenate. ALL ROOMS HAVE EN SUITE VANITY SINKS, but none have private toilets or showers. 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)
The house....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. Modern kitchen with appliances 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. However, we do have 3 super sweet, friendly pooches that live with us. They mostly stay downstairs with us, out back, or in the kitchen. They are not allowed in the other guest areas, so no worries about any dog hair or mess.
The neighborhood...Capitol View/Sylvan Hills, an up and coming community close to downtown. It's a slow paced, residential inner-city Atlanta neighborhood comprised of mostly single family homes. Lots of urban pioneering going on, so it's a mix of longtime working class families and older folks mixed with artsy, liberal minded, socially conscious type people moving in, which gives sort of a Bohemian/ inner city vibe. Overall, people are very friendly and hospitable, a great way to experience real old style Atlanta southern culture, since neighborhood hasn't been gentrified yet. If you are looking for an area bustling with trendy cafes, pretentious people, and posh shops, this neighborhood is not for you. You should look for listings in Inman Park, Midtown, Va Highlands or Buckhead. Beautiful Perkerson Park is nearby (5 to 10 minute walk) with tennis courts, basketball, frisbee golf course, running track with workout stations, and plenty of beautiful open space.
I have 3 houses very close to each other, when you book a room, you will be staying in one of the 3 houses. All are very charming and offer the same amenities.
Slow paced, laid back, not pretentious, just real folks who may not have much in the way of material possessions, but are friendly, happy, and always willing to help a neighbor or guest in need.
3 minute walk to the Oakland City Marta Station
Please review the following requests:
Please do not use candles in the rooms.
Please keep cell phone conversations at a minimal volume as well as your cell phone ringer off. You are welcome to talk at full volume outside.
Please use headphones when listening to music and/or watching TV or videos, as the walls are thin and sound carries to other rooms.
Laundry hours are from 2pm until 11 pm.
Dogs! Yes, we know they are adorable! Irresistible, even! But they are master manipulators when it comes to food. We ask that you please do not give them any people food. There is a jar of dog treats in the kitchen which you are free to give them as many as you like. Also, please make sure to keep the plastic gate closed that separates the kitchen from the living room.
There are bins in the refrigerator/freezer, as well as on the shelves in the kitchen for your groceries. Please label your name with labels provided.
Please try to walk as quietly as possible, especially in the morning and late at night. This is an old house and heavy footsteps can disturb the guests downstairs. Also, try to close doors gently.
When parking, please don’t leave any gaps between driveways or other cars, to optimize number of spaces.
Feel free to enjoy fresh fruit, herbs, and veggies from the garden out back!
No visitors, without making prior arrangements with us.
Don’t forget to leave the key behind when you checkout.
Beautiful, quiet place. Tracy was very nice and made us feel at home. Lovely dogs.
This house is fantastic. Clean, charming, close to the MARTA, all for a great price. Tracy is a great host, and her doggies are super friendly. I would recommend my friends to stay there as I would stay there again when in the area.
Tracy was very nice! She let us leave our bags in the room on our last day because we were leaving late that night. We loved our room and the dogs were so friendly. The train station was very close by. Just be careful walking back since it's dark at night. This was my first experience with airbnb and I loved it!
Super cute rustic bungalow! Tracy was very friendly and helpful. The place was very clean and her pups were a super bonus for any dog lover. Comfy bed and great setup for a bnb. Tracey was super flexible when our arrival time changed last minute. Don't be worried about the area. Our rental car was safe and even walking the few blocks back from the MARTA train stop was safe at 2am. Would highly recommend, and will definitely stay there again next time we're in Atlanta.
A beautiful home and a comfortable room. I walked to the MARTA station every morning in around 6 minutes.
Tracy is an absolute sweet heart. She picked me up from the MARTA station, and welcomed me into her beautiful home with open arms. It's humble, clean, organized and the dogs are so well behaved, and love able!
This is definitely a real ATLien neighborhood as the post suggests. I felt safe walking to and from the MARTA during the day by myself. Uber is also available in the area with no longer than a 3 min wait time. I used uber at night and Tracy had discount cards for first time users :-)
I was there for a short time but really felt at home. Thank you Tracy!

About the Host, Vintage Bungalow
Easy going, creative types. We like cooking, entertaining, local, organic food, yoga, good wine, lots of good music, art, film, animals, nature, sailing, the ocean, traveling, calm and tranquil spaces,and try to find beauty in all things. We love to have fun and not take life too seriously. We enjoy hosting and meeting new friends from all cultures and backgrounds and don't really follow the mainstream of American culture much at all. We love to buy houses and fix them up. We 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 dogs in the house as well, so animal lovers usually love staying with us. Our properties are in lower income 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. Because we are in a lower income neighborhood, we can offer more upscale 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. Our 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.
