About this listing
Really cool hostel space! Little private rooms feel like you're at a tranquil spa. Just 2 blocks from the metro station. Only a 3 minute walk to the Oakland City station. Halfway between Airport and Downtown, perfect for downtown conferences/events.
Semi-Private Space.... This is not a real room with solid walls, but one of six cheerful, inviting, beautifully decorated areas divided by warm solid wooden partitions and floor to ceiling curtains. Picture a small spa room with the cozy feel of fort you may have built as a kid. Some have described them as sleeping pods or cubicles. There is total visual privacy, and guests are asked to keep any noise at a minimum, to accomodate everyone's sleeping schedule. In each of these little sleeping pods, you will find a very comfortable and well dressed single bed, plenty of storage, towel, robe, slippers, earplugs, headphones, fan, and pretty much everything needed to get a cozy night's rest, an afternoon nap, a session of work/study, or just chillin and relaxing. These crash pads are 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) At any given time there could potentially be up to 6 people staying in the Crash Pad area, sharing a small kitchen, one shower/tub, 2 toilets, and 3 vanity sinks with loads of natural light and mirrors, which is plenty to accomodate everyone. The Crash Pads and amenities described are on the Garden level of our beautiful historic home. The main level has 5 private rooms, 2 bathrooms, the big main kitchen, and lots of living room/common area space available to use for hanging out, working, reading, etc...The common areas, bathrooms and kitchen on main floor are all available to crash pad guests, too. 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 of the sweetest, cutest dogs ever that stay here, as well as myself, Tracy.
House is tastefully furnished with vintage housewares mixed with modern and elements of nature. Kitchen available to guests, as well as WIFI and BBQ grill. Nice big yard and patio seating perfect for enjoying our beautiful, sunny Atlanta mornings.
The neighborhood...Capitol View, an up and coming community close to downtown. It's a strictly residential neighborhood comprised of single family homes that has a Bohemian mixed with inner city feel. You won't meet any tourists around here. It's mostly just local, lower income, working class, friendly ATLiens. Old neighborhood/southern hospitality. No pretentious people, no great markets, cafes, . or shops, just single family homes, a few random commercial businesses, a nice big park, and a mini mart for convenience items. But Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Publix, etc are just a 10 to 15 minute drive or easily accessible on Marta

Interaction with Guests
I am around (in and out)most days, as well as the 3 pups. Also, there are usually between 5 to 15 other guests staying here, so you can choose to keep to yourself or mingle with other guests. Overall, it's a very clean, comfortable, calm, and peaceful atmosphere. Excellent place to rest and recharge.
Other Things to Note
Please keep all communications here on our Airbnb thread for easy reference. Also, sometime before the date of your reservation, be sure to schedule a time(after 3 PM) to meet us for check in. Do not show up at the property unannounced. There won't be anyone around to let you in. You must make arrangements in advance! Also, if you would like to come by earlier to drop of bags, you may arrange a time after 10 AM to do so, and we will transfer to your room when it's ready. But again, you must schedule the drop off with us. This is not a hotel, we don't have anyone sitting around 24/7 waiting for guests to check-in. Everything must be set up before the day of your arrival.
Very nice play to stay ! She went pick me up at the subway station ! It was just for 1 night and I enjoyed my stay !
This place was stellar! Perfect for traveling through Atlanta and possibly even for an extended stay. Tracy was welcoming and kind. I arrived hours late and Tracy was still awake waiting on me. Definitely recommend this to anyone. This was my first Airbnb experience but won't be the last.
As a traveling designer this place was heaven for me. A great mix of vintage and repurposed with very clever use of space.
Then to seal the deal I spent a good chunk of time in the hammock cuddling her pup while the crickets chirped and lightning bugs floated by.
The host was very welcoming, being accommodating for my late arrival after midnight by greeting me. She maintains a clean, peaceful and quiet place even though it was booked 100% through the weekend. The pictures were accurate and even cleaner than I expected. One surprise was the awesome backyard with hammock and garden. Overall, this was a great place that's affordable and convenient to MARTA as well!
Very nice and comfortable place to stay in, love it ! The house itself is very beactiful. Not to mention the three lovely dogs :)
This is my first airbnb experience and Tracy is a really great host. Her house is beautiful and clean. Close to Martha station and it is very convenient to get to the airport and downtown. She also has three cute dogs. I will highly recommend others to stay with her.

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.
