The SpaceWe are a great overnight stop for those travelling on I-75 as well as a great location for your Atlanta vacation! The private suite is located in the daylight basement (which is ground level). Bedroom is behind French doors with a queen bed, dresser, and small closet. The bath is a full bath with a shower stall (a bathtub is available upstairs for the kids). The suite also has a living room with small dorm fridge, small microwave, TV, sleeper sofa, and recliner. The full size futon bed has a 8" thick mattress and is very comfortable. It was bought brand new and has always had a cover and mattress pad on it. We also have an Aero Bed for extra guests. All of our towels and sheets are great quality and are items we would use ourselves. The bedroom is kept cat-free and the cats hate that! Guests are welcome to use the kitchen anytime, and able to keep items in the refrigerator that will not fit downstairs. We are able to accommodate more than 6 people using additional air beds and couch space. There is an upstairs guest bedroom with a queen bed and a private bath down the hall available for a nominal feel for 4 guests or less when available. Please inquire for more information.
NOTE: We have our space listed as "entire home" because AirBnB does not have an option for a private suite with a private bathroom unless you list "entire house." I'm sorry if this is a problem. Guest AccessNOTE: We have our space listed as "entire home" because AirBnB does not have an option for a private suite with a private bathroom unless you list "entire house." I'm sorry if this is a problem.
Guests will have access to the kitchen, dining room, and living room. These areas are shared with us. Please feel free to cook as needed. Our Living room has a 42" flat screen TV with surround sound, and you are welcome to control the remote. Washer and dryer is available for reasonable guest use (meaning things like washing the entire little league team's uniform daily is not reasonable - True story!!!). Anyone can step out to the deck and wander around the fenced backyard. Pets will be happy to run around our fenced-in backyard. We have a pet gate that we install at the top of our stairs for the doggie visitors so that the resident kitties can have their space. Dogs are welcome in the common areas with their human best friends. Interaction with GuestsWe are happy to be as interactive as you would like. We love to help you plan out your visit to Atlanta and help our guests find the coolest places off the beaten path! Just let us know if you want to be left alone. We cannot read minds and are never intentionally rude. We do not like to invade your space, so beds will not be made or towels picked up daily unless you request this service. For long stays we do towels every other day. The NeighborhoodThe neighborhood is an older neighborhood that is close to restaurants, movie theaters, shopping, Galleria, and the Cumberland Mall. Because it is older the neighborhood has lots of beautiful tall trees. This neighborhood has been used to film three TV show and/or movies. The house is located on a cul-de-sac in the back of the subdivision, so there is hardly any traffic. Neighborhood is safe to walk or run in, and kids can play in the fenced backyard, the large driveway, or cul-de-sac. Grocery stores are only about a mile away. We are about 4 miles from Dobbins ARB, so this would be a great place for someone to stay while on TDY. The Marietta Square is only 6 miles away, and has many great restaurants and shops. The Sope Creek part of the Chattahoochee National Recreation Area is 3 miles away, and we have a pass you can use to access the running, walking, and biking trails (you are welcome to borrow our bikes). We also have a Georgia Park Pass available for guests to borrow. Red Top Mountain is only 30 minutes north of us and has boats to rent, fishing, great trails, and swimming beaches. Terrell Mill Park is only a mile away and has a soccer field, baseball fields, and a covered picnic area next to a playground with rubber ground. Wildwood Park is the closest dog park at about 6 miles away and has running trails. Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield is about 13 miles away. No pass is required to drive to the top of the mountain. Midtown and Downtown Atlanta are a short drive, even in traffic, because we know the short cuts! Both of us attended Georgia Tech and I drove for Lyft and Uber for a while, so despite being in the suburbs we know that area. We keep a folder full of restaurant menus in the bedroom, and we keep up with the latest and greatest hot spots in the metro area. Getting AroundWe have plenty of room in our driveway for 2 cars, as well as room on the cul-de-sac. We have had large moving trucks park on our street overnight with no issue. Unfortunately we are not near public transportation, but there is a bus that runs on nearby Powers Ferry Rd. It is the #50 bus which takes you to the Cumberland Mall, where you can take a bus and connect to Atlanta's MARTA transportation. You can also use Lyft or Uber to get around. I have lived in Atlanta since 1995, and my husband grew up here. We would easily be able to help you figure out how to get around and what to see. We enjoy helping other people discover everything Atlanta has to offer. We are happy to pick you up from the airport if needed for $15. Other Things to NoteNO CLEANING OR SURPRISE FEES! The price you see is our price, and AirBnB adds only their fee on top of our price. We clean with natural cleaners as much as possible for those will sensitivities. We know Atlanta! Only well-behaved animals please, and please make sure you have plans for your animals if left at our house while you are out. We have no problem keeping our friendly cats in our bedroom during your stay if needed. Though I will clean the best I can to remove cat hair and dander, I won't get 100% of it. If you have allergies to cats please plan accordingly. We keep the bedroom cat-free, the cats rarely go to the suite, and we have a whole house filtration system to clean the air. Most people with cat allergies have no problems in our house. We have a highchair available if needed, but our house is NOT childproof. This is not a hostel. The reservation is for the entire space whether there is one person or six, like a hotel room.
