I'm an End-of-Life Doula working here in Atlanta. One of my great joys is to share my peaceful house with travelers.

This place was lovely and calm - such a nice house. Such a nice garden. I really enjoyed working out on the porch. Genevieve was very kin and accommodating as well. Fully recommend this place
This place was wonderful and Genevieve was an excellent host. She stayed in communication by text and email without being intrusive. The house is very lovely and the backyard is beautiful. We were able to walk to the Inman Park neighborhood and it's boutiques and excellent restaurants, as well as the Little Five Points entertainment district. The house is in an historically significant and interesting neighborhood that was fun to explore. We could drive downtown in under 10 min (traffic permitting) or we could walk to (or park at) the Inman Park-Reynoldstown MARTA station and reach downtown and other parts of the city by rail. In fact, one could fly to ATL and take MARTA rail and get around without a car while staying at Genevieve's place. We did have a car and it was convenient that we had off-street parking. Most houses in Cabbagetown do not have that.
We recommend the 8 min walk to Carroll Street Cafe for breakfast and a 15 minute stroll through Inman Park to have dinner at the one Eared Stag across from he MARTA station.
We would definitely recommend this place!
I booked this place for my parents' visit to Atlanta and I cannot believe how incredible it was. It's in the heart of Cabbagetown, but it felt like we were worlds away. Everything from the open kitchen to the spa bathroom to the cozy living room with fireplace to the back deck to the hot tub (!!!) was perfection and I wanted to move in. I feel like the pictures don't even do it justice. Genevieve was a great host and even though we were supposed to check in the day after Snowpocalypse 2014 when the city was literally shut down, she still had the house ready for us and sparkling clean. My parents said they aren't coming back to visit unless they can stay here again. :)
The place is amazing. Very relaxing. Great atmosphere. The neighborhood is right near everything I like about Atlanta.
This is a lovely, well-maintained house in a fantastic location. You can walk or take a momentary drive to some of the best restaurants in Atlanta (Rathbun's), fun and colorful neighborhood joints (anything on Carroll Street), the Beltline, and the beautiful homes/eateries of Inman Park. As an Atlanta resident, I was so pleased to find this home. It's in a great neighborhood known for its history and artistic character. The house is welcoming and the main bathroom is fantastic! Genevieve makes the whole process simple and stress free.
Genevieve's place in Cabbagetown is a gem. When we walked through the door we felt right at home and welcomed with cozy and open space. Kitchen was large and well equipped. The master bedroom was spacious with a comfortable bed. The living was warm, especially with the stove heater on. There were many unique touches that made this place memorable, including the kitchen nook where we spent a lot time, the large backyard deck,the Japanese tub, and outdoor grill. Genevieve responds very quickly to requests which we really appreciated. We will definitely book here again.
We had a wonderful stay at Genevieve Barber's Zen Retreat, which we nicknamed "The Zen Palace." We cooked two Thanksgiving side dishes in her fully equipped kitchen (which we transported to our family-reunion/Thanksgiving venue, a 10-minute walk away in Cabbagetown). The place is spotless, simply and beautifully decorated, and so comfortable. If it had been a bit warmer outside, we would have spent many happy hours on the screened-in porch out back. Genevieve's communication with us prior to and during our visit was timely and helpful. The Zen Retreat is a perfect place to stay in Atlanta!
Genevieve had the loveliest house tucked away in the historic neighborhood of Cabbage town. Walking distance to great bars, restaurants, and even a yoga studio! The hottub was a treat! We will definitely be back.
Staying at Genevieve's house was wonderful! Super clean, beautiful decor and altogether relaxing. The hot tub was definitely a plus! Genevieve herself was super helpful and caring about our stay as well. This is the first time I've use airbnb and it was a terrific experience. We can't wait until our next trip to Atlanta because we know we have such a wonderful place to stay. Our trip was fantastic and I think we owe a lot of that credit to Genevieve and her home. Thanks again, Genevieve!
What a great place to stay for my team! I have a studio close by but needed extra beds for out of town workers. This house was perfect. I would like to buy this house! Genevieve was a great host and though I didn't meet her, she kept me informed. Stay here!
