I'm an End-of-Life Doula working here in Atlanta. One of my great joys is to share my peaceful house with travelers.
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!
even more beautiful and relaxing than the pictures show.
you'll never want to leave!! genevieve is such a great hostess too and makes the process super easy, this is the very best place to stay when visiting atlanta or if you live there and want to treat yourself to weekend getaway. really can't recommend it highly enough.
My girlfriends and I stayed at Genevieve's for a day of pre-wedding relaxation. I lost count of how many times we discussed wishing we'd booked it for a longer stay. The house is in a great location- quiet neighborhood but close to so many of Atlanta's best restaurants and venues. The interior of the home is warm and inviting and has so much character; both in the artwork and decor as well as the design. As a group that loves to eat and drink, we thoroughly enjoyed using the high end kitchen. We made good use of the gorgeous back porch and the hot tub as well.
I will certainly consider Genevieve's home for future rentals. She was a joy to work with in setting up the arrangements and made us feel very welcome!
