I am a researcher at Emory University's medical and business schools and also run an online travel company. I travel as much as possible and just moved to Atlanta from London in January.
We had a wonderful time staying in the Treehouse. We stayed 3 nights, in the leafy environs of Victoria Highlands. We were pleasantly surprised with the cottage'y feel of the apartment. It had everything we needed, and our hosts were extremely helpful and went of their way to accommodate us. Having numerous restaurants within walking distance was a great plus. We would definitely stay here again.
great place, nice location. I stayed for 11 nights and i felt like at home. I would recommend it to anybody coming to atl!
Fantastic stay at the Tree House. I stayed 4 nights here and it was the perfect location in Atlanta. The Highlands is a beautiful neighborhood, close to everything you need. The apartment itself had everything I needed. I just wish the weather was warmer so I could have enjoyed the wrap around deck a bit. I'd definitely stay here next time I am in town for business.
Absolutely wonderful - I was here for 6 nights. A fantastic, beautiful apartment in a quiet, tree-full neighborhood.
In many ways, it was comically bad: the host offering up inconsistent excuses as to why the apartment wasn't ready, while an older woman hustled fresh laundry from the main house - scrambling at 7pm for our arrival.
I rented the apartment for a Valentine's getaway - I told the host I'd be by to stash drinks earlier in the afternoon, and we'd stay over that night. I didn't mention that I had plans to place candles, little notes, and other sundries around as Valentine's surprises ... because, well, you expect a degree of privacy and autonomy when you pay $108 (with taxes) for an overnight stay.
So with a car full of little gestures and ingredients for a romantic dinner, I headed to the house around 4:30 pm to setup - in time to get home, shower & surprise my sweetheart with the in-town getaway.
Despite Andrew's 1pm email assurance that the previous guest had left, the place was in shambles. Wine glass, half full, next to an electric toothbrush on the kitchen counter. An open laptop in the dirty unmade bed. Four bags of trash on the exterior porch - one almost full of wine bottles.
I spent the next thirty minutes trying to get ahold of him - even finding his (website hidden) account. He picked up about the 14th phone call; flustered, stammering excuses. When would the place be ready? He said around an hour. At 6pm, I called again. He'd need another 30-60 minutes.
At this point I was in tears; the surprise was ruined.
We finally headed over at 7pm, when the laundry was being up from the main house. Andrew had left us a bottle of champagne as an apology, and he offered up excuses about the prior guest having left some items behind.
But the details didn't add up - who leaves their open laptop on a stranger's bed for a few days? As an avid Couchsurfer and traveler, I've stayed in many situations in many countries - I even worked for a few months in hostels in Portugal. I'm flexible, but this was too much.
Andrew was nice, and lenient about checkout time, so we did sleep in quite a bit and enjoyed our getaway after all. From what I understand, his prior guests had lovely visits, but he really dropped the ball for our stay.
Andrew is a very pleasant young man who is anxious to please. The treehouse was clean and comfortable. It is located in one of those nice older neighborhoods near CDC, Piedmont Park, the High Art Museum, etc. that also has good restaurants nearby. We plan to stay there again on our periodic trips to the big city.
Andrew kept constant communication and was flexible with check-in and check-out times. This was my [conservative] father's introduction to Airbnb so I had to do it right! The place was VERY clean. Embroidered towels with "Tree House" gave a hotel feel. Good shampoo in the tight/cozy shower. The place felt secluded on the second floor - I loved the windows and feel of natural around us. The temperature was perfect and the pull out bed was easy-breezy. Great place to work or get away.
Andrew was responsive and helpful whenever I had questions. The place was clean and conveniently located near the city. I had a very positive experience. Thanks Andrew!
Andrew's Tree House is a wonderful place to stay in Atlanta: private, easy to get to mid-town, in a great neighborhood, and very a very nice host.
It's a treehouse!!! I really loved staying at his place. The neighborhood was gorgeous ,which actually changed my outlook on Atlanta. Eventhough my trip was very short about 20 hours short I still loved just chilling for while. There are lots of places to get un-McDonalds like food. I needed some new experiences and I got them. I look forward to coming back and having more new fun!! I'm doing this review on my phone because I couldn't wait to let everyone know how i feel about Andrew's treehouse!.
