A real home away from home! You are never asked to sign a lease. Guest AccessThe neighborhood Swim & Tennis Club has a saline pool (open May - September); lighted tennis courts; and a walking trail. There is a nearby "Y" with gym facilities, an indoor track, classes and a large pool (reciprocal for out-of-town "Y" members).
The apartment's "close in" location offers easy access to Downtown Atlanta (Atlanta city center), Midtown Atlanta, Atlantic Station, Buckhead, Brookhaven, Chamblee, Dunwoody, Sandy Springs and the North Georgia mountains.
Temporary library cards are issued by the DeKalb County Public Library enabling convenient access to movies and music on DVD, books-on-tape, e-books, hardback and paperback books, e-magazines, plus much, much more! Nearest libraries are in Brookhaven, Chamblee and Dunwoody -- and your computer.
Atlanta is a large, sprawling metropolitan area located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Everywhere you walk in Atlanta will be uphill or downhill; it requires a lot of stamina, especially on hot, humid days. Even though the apartment location is considered "close-in" you will need to have access to a car -- your own or a rental.
MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority) is great for going to and from the Atlanta Airport, as well as going to Midtown, Downtown, the Georgia State Capitol, Centennial Park (near the Georgia Aquarium, the World of Coca-Cola, CNN, Philips Arena, the Georgia Dome and the Georgia World Congress Center), Georgia State University and the Georgia Institute of Technology. But, MARTA won't get you anywhere else in a timely manner. Plan on having a car! Interaction with GuestsAs a guest you have complete privacy. However, your on-site host is friendly, hospitable, helpful, and usually available 24/7, if needed. Any issues, repairs or other concerns are dealt with promptly.
Even though you are in Atlanta on business, your host can suggest some quick sidetrips to places that say, "Atlanta!" in your collection of travel souvenirs and memories. Just ask! The library of books in the apartment includes "Atlanta Walks" by Helen and Ren Davis.
This is not a vacation property. It was planned with a traveling nurse, a medical or legal intern, an adjunct professor, a CDC professional or other business professional in Atlanta for training or a temporary duty assignment in mind.
If you are not sure if this apartment is in a good location for where you need to be while in Atlanta, just ask! You will receive an honest answer and, if necessary, suggestions of other areas to search for in Airbnb. The NeighborhoodMy upscale neighborhood is small, safe, quiet and located inside the Perimeter (ITP) -- i.e., close-in. It is a mile or so away from Medical Center MARTA (Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit) and three major hospitals (Emory-St. Joseph's, Northside and Children's). Excellent shopping and restaurants are located nearby (Perimeter Mall, Town Brookhaven, Lenox Square, Phipps Plaza and much more). In the mood for antiquing? Chamblee's Antique Row is just a few miles away. Major universities (Oglethorpe, Emory, Georgia State, Georgia Tech, Mercer) -- the arts, culture, lifelong learning and sports -- are nearby, as well. Getting AroundClose-in location, inside I-285 North (ITP - inside the Perimeter); less than 1 mile to Medical Center MARTA rapid transit station (45 minutes to the Atlanta Airport; 15 minutes to Art Center Station, Midtown Station and Georgia Tech; 25 minutes to Georgia State University). MARTA passes with unlimited rides are available. ZipCar is available at Art Center MARTA and other MARTA stations. From the apartment, there is easy car access to GA-400, I-285 (The Perimeter), 4 miles to Oglethorpe University and Town Brookhaven, 6 miles to I-75/I-85 (The Downtown Connector), 8 miles to Emory University, 11 miles to Midtown, 12 miles to Georgia Tech, 12 miles to the Centers for Disease Control at Emory (5 miles to CDC-Chamblee), 14 miles to Georgia State University and the Georgia State Capitol. Nevertheless, you will need a car in Atlanta -- your own or a rental.
Directions to the apartment from your arrival point in Atlanta will be provided via email. Please contact me with the date, time and location of your arrival. Other Things to NoteNightly/daily rentals and weekly rentals are NOT available. Monthly rental (30 days) is below the GSA per diem lodging rate for the Atlanta area. After 1 month, rental is prorated to actual number of days. Further savings in the daily cost of meals are realized because of the nicely equipped full kitchen. Having free access to your own washer and dryer is a great convenience and also provides savings on laundry.
