The great view from the living room! Now even better with desk to work at in place of bookshelf ;)
Ben and Erin's condo was exactly what we needed for our Atlanta stay. It had all of the amenities we were looking for, a great location, and it was spotless! All of the furniture, appliances, and decorations were awesome and upgraded, which we really appreciated it. The kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom was well stocked with everything we need plus more.
Ben was extremely attentive and answered all of our questions immediately, which I loved! He checked in on us a few times and we even bumped into him in the elevator! He was a gracious host and we would definitely stay in one of his properties again.
My family's stay at Ben & Erin's apartment could not have been better! Upon arrival, we were welcomed with a bottle of wine, and all of the amenities of home. After a week long drive from California to Atlanta, it was a much needed oasis and provided the perfect opportunity to recharge our batteries. Every aspect of the apartment was clean and comfortable, and being on the 18th floor, the giant windows provided a killer skyline view. We will definitely be staying here again on our next visit to Atlanta.
Ben and Erin made us feel very welcomed in their apartment even going as far as to check that we had made it to the apartment. Everything was as per the listing. Appreciated the extra touch of having instructions and directions of nearby restaurants and their favourite places.
Such an amazing place to stay. Surpassed my expectations. Great location, the place was well maintained, and Ben and Erin did a great job of providing me with information and checking in and seeing how things were going. Would definitely stay again.
Ben and Erin were very communicative and very concerned about providing us with optimum comfort. The condo itself was lovely and really accommodating. Highly recommendable.
Ben and Erin kept in contact to make sure I arrived and was able to get into the apartment - how could I not when they have such great instruction! The team that manned the 24hr security desk was awesome! I travel to Atlanta often and would look to stay here again!
The listing description was accurate. Ben was very on top of things when I needed something and also sent an email about a week before check in with additional info. I had picked the condo over some others in the downtown area simply because it was listed with a larger sq. footage and I was very happy with the spaciousness of it. There were a lot of little things in the condo that were a help--including some oil to cook eggs, which I had forgotten at the store, and some coffee and tea already there. I did not rent a car and it was very doable on foot. Took the Marta from the airport and back and walked most places in the area. Someone who is not used to walking in the summer humidity may opt for Uber etc. to get to close by places. I am used to jogging and so used the walking as my exercise for the day but someone else might not want to do that. :)

About the Host, Ben And Erin
Erin got a job at Airbnb (!) and moved to San Francisco! She completed a PhD in economics in 2012. Ben earned an MA in applied linguistics in 2013 and teaches English to non-native speakers.
We are friends who have worked, traveled and lived together. In 2010, we bought an abandoned condo in Erin's building and fixed it up. It has amazing views of Atlanta and is a perfect home base for business or pleasure travel. After Erin moved out to California, she was able to put her Atlanta home on Airbnb as well.
About Erin: She's lived in Indiana, Australia, DC, Atlanta and now San Francisco, and has traveled to 5 continents, 31 countries and 46 states. She likes traveling, geography/maps, math, yoga, trivia, spreadsheets, golfing, football (Go Colts!), and animals (dogs especially). =)
About Ben: He's lived in DC, Northern Virginia, Massachusetts, Southern California, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, and Atlanta. He likes people, travel, running (head over to the Beltline while you're here!), biking, and spending time at the Chesapeake Bay.
We look forward to sharing our knowledge of Atlanta as well as our condo with you! We hope to see you soon!
