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. In each of these spaces, you will find a very comfortable and well dressed single bed, plenty of storage, towel, robe, slippers, 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 here sharing the kitchen, one shower/tub, 2 toilets, 3 vanity sinks with loads of natural light and mirrors, which is plenty to accomodate everyone. The common areas, bathrooms and kitchen on main floor are also available to crash pad guests. 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, I do have 2 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. Modest kitchen available to guests, as well as WIFI and laundry facilities. Nice big yard and patio seating for those 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.
Bathrooms, kitchens, all common areas, laundry, back yard, patio, grill, garden, etc...
Interaction with Guests
I am around 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.
This was a fantastic place to stay. Everything I could have needed was provided, along with some extras (bathrobe and slippers!). The house is fantastic, with a brilliant kitchen upstairs and a whole secondary one downstairs. Of course, the best part were the three dogs - absolutely wonderful animals.
Thank you Tracy for a wonderful first experience using Air Bnb. Your place is adorable and very homey. You made me feel so comfortable with your inviting personality and warmth. And your doggies are so sweet too. I just loved staying with you. Oh, and thanks again for breakfast on my way out! :))
Tracy, Thank you so much! Your house is perfect. I enjoyed my stay in your house. what's more, I miss the little dog. It is so lovely.
Tracy was a really hospitable host and she offered to fetch me from the metro to her house on the day of my arrival. Her house was clean and neat and she was really nice to have given me a room upgrade (to fit my luggage) as she coincidentally had a spare room. Dog lovers would love this place with 2-3 dogs in the house. One thing to take note would be that it gets pretty dark at night on the way back from the metro so do go about in groups or come back before sunset. Other than that, it was a great stay at Tracy's.
I can not wait to visit this place again - loved the hosts vibe and the cool elegant decor
What a wonderful experience! Easy to find, in-town neighborhood with easy access to Marta. Tracy is the most gracious host and has thought of every creature comfort, even a fluffy robe and slippers. This is a gorgeous craftsman bungalow that is appointed with beautiful furnishings. My room was comfortable and beautiful. Tracy greeted me in the driveway and gave me a tour. I look forward to my next stay!

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.
