Our son was married in Atlanta this month. I rented this beautiful spacious home last January for 4 nights around the rehearsal, wedding, and the October weekend after the wedding. We had 9 people staying at the home, all upstairs in the 4 bedrooms and library sofa bed and two baths. We also entertained all the visiting family and friends for meals and football games on the big screen tv, and walks in the parks and sitting on the beautiful patio and lawn. Several family members took Marta and walked to the house and we all used the Checker cab company to go to and from the events very reasonably. I have thanked the owner, Doug, as much as I can for the wonderful time. We had everything that we needed and more. Every guest expressed surprise and pleasure at the amazing space in which we had to celebrate our only son's wedding and visit.

This is the perfect vacation home in Atlanta. The house is beautiful , spacious, and spotless. The dining room is amazingly beautiful with lots of windows looking into the lovely garden. There is so much refined elegance in this house that anyone who is interested in older homes would fall in love with it immediately.The kitchen is up to-date and very well-equipped. The master suite is unbelievable. The photos do not really show how nice this house is.
It is very convenient to MARTA (Atlanta's rapid transit), and grocery stores. The neighborhood is gorgeous, especially in spring.
The owner is very accommodating and responds quickly to emails.
Too bad that it is booked for Thanksgiving and Xmas already or else we'll be back. We cannot wait to rent it again.

Just wanted to thank you for renting us your beautiful home. We had a wonderful time, ice and all! We mastered the Marta and used it all week to get to the show. I have to say I had forgotten what adding humidity to cold weather can feel like. There is definitely a lot more laughing and "bonding" sharing a house than if all 5 of us had gone off to our separate hotel rooms every night. That was probably the best part.

Doug was very helpful with all of our queries and made sure we had everything we needed and provided us with great information about the house and area.
The house was spotless when we got there and stocked with all essentials to start us off.
We will be recommending it to everyone due to go over to Atlanta that want to stay away from the hustle of downtown.
In summary, unbelievable house, good value, really helpful owner in Doug and we'll be back!

The description of this home downplayed the beauty of this 1920s gem which has been completely restored/updated and is well maintained by the owners. It is located in an upscale neighborhood where we enjoyed walking and looking at the homes. We also enjoyed lunch in nearby Decatur at Ted Montana's and strolled the Farmer's Market where we purchased hard to find delicacies. We had chosen two restaurants for dinner in the town of Roswell - Relish (which we saw on the Food Network) and Sugo. Both were excellent. Would have liked to have tried more of the owner recommended places but were only in town for the weekend to meet our son who drove down from Ft. Bragg. He enjoyed the Atlanta Aquarium and the zoo, which werenerby. I highly recommend this property for those who have discerning tastes but want to be near attractions. The owner, Doug, was very accomodating. If I return to the Atlanta area, I would definitely choose to stay here again.
