The great view from the living room! Now even better with desk to work at in place of bookshelf ;)
Ben and Erin were great hosts - attentive but not at all intrusive. The flat is very well equipped and very central - and clean and comfortable. It's a shame the pool was being repainted while I was there - it would have been nice to have a swim!
Overall it was a really good airbnb experience. Check in and check out were both easy. Ben and Erin worked around my flight times and even held onto my bags or a few hours after check-out, which was great.
I'd definitely stay there again!
Ben and Erin made our trip one to remember! Their place was immaculate and beautiful! They were there for all of our questions and needs. I would stay with them again and again, and any trip to Atlanta I take I hope to stay with them. The place had everything we could have possibly needed and every need we had was accommodated! Everything was absolute perfect! Ben and Erin are the perfect example of the perfect hosts!
Erin and Ben are wonderful hosts! I needed to check-in a few hours early, and they made arrangements without hesitation. After a long day of travel, I felt right at home with keys waiting for me at the front lobby and a bottle of wine on the coffee table when I walked into the apartment. The tastefully decorated apartment is on the 18th floor with a lovely view of the city. The layout is spacious, the bed is comfortable, and the location is walking distance to great restaurants and some of the major museum attractions downtown. This was my first visit to Atlanta and Erin and Ben were prompt to answer all my questions. If I return to Atlanta, I'd definitely book with them again.
The condo was well decorated and very clean. The bed's were comfortable with plenty of extra pillow, blankets, etc. Easy walk to most places downtown. We walked to the World Congress Center, Aquarium, Centennial Park.
The only bad part about our stay was the air handlers for the building were down (not the host's fault). It was cool enough to leave windows open at night, but the noise from the highway and all the other city noise was distracting to sleep through.
Overall I would recommend this place to a friend.
Ben and Erin's place was just as described! It was extremely clean and organized. Coffee and tea was provided in the pantry and lots of dishes were available for use for cooking. The view was great and the location was perfect for us as we wanted to see all of the attractions such as World of Coke, Georgia Aquarium, Centennial Park. Although I did not meet them personally, Ben and Erin were great hosts! They were responsive and left us with clear instructions. I would definitely recommend this place for anyone visiting Atlanta!
Everything was perfect. Great location. Lots of restaurants to walk to. Very clean and nice place.
As first timers to AirBnB, I don't think we could have asked for a better experience. Thank goodness because my husband is a loyal Marriott rewards member, so it took a lot of convincing to get him to try AirBnB. The 24 hour security guard is nice because we checked in late on our first evening. The condo was well stocked will all necessary items for a family of four. It was within walking distance to all of our activities (aquarium, Children's museum, Olympic Park and Ferris wheel). On a major road so easy to get around to explore other parts of town. Ben was very quick to respond to questions I had about the unit. Beds were really comfortable! The unit was tastefully decorated and was great for small children because there were minimal things on shelves they could potentially break (we moved it all up higher just to be safe). They put a lot of thought into items stocked in their kitchen ( a cooler for picnics in the park) and even a baby bottle cleaner! We had a great experience and I would stay here again! Better than a hotel!

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!
