A fully renovated apartment roosts above a 1902 home in the heart of the Historic Boulevard Neighborhood. This in-town apartment with beautiful garden on a 1/2 acre lot is the perfect home base for an Athens experience.
The apartment has private stairway entrance and fully equipped urban kitchen. Free curbside parking on spacious street. New, hard pine floors throughout. Cable TV and wireless internet also provided.
My family and I live below the apartment. We assume you'd like your privacy, but we are also very happy to help with advice and directions.
Some of the bounty that awaits you by easy walk or very short ride: Thousand Faces coffee and Jittery Joe's Roasters, White Tiger BBQ and Heirloom cafe, Normaltown (featuring Automatic Pizza, Agua Linda, Normal Bar, Hi-Lo, Old Pal, Ike and Jane's cafe, and Marti's at Midday) and Bottleworks on Prince (featuring SeaBear Oyster Bar, Taqueria Del Sol, Hendershot's Coffee & Bar, Siri Thai, and Viva Argentine Cuisine). And, of course, easy travel by foot or bus to downtown and Sanford Stadium.
In addition to the wonderful eateries, yoga studios, coffeehouses and nightlife, the apartment is surrounded by beautiful historic homes worthy of a stroll. Several parks and playgrounds are also nearby.
Our only issue was the air conditioning, one wall unit in living room area so the bedroom was much warmer than we are accustomed to.
We were in town for UGA graduation. The location of this property was perfect! It is on a street filled with historic homes and lovely eclectic gardens. Close enough to walk to get a coffee or a bite to eat. The apartment is exactly as described. Very clean and quaint. Very quiet. It was perfect for the two of us !
Jason was thoughtful and well prepared as a host. The room was exactly as pictured, and we'll located between Downtown and Normal Town. I also got a chance to meet his dog, Bagel, who was a sweetheart and sat with me in the morning when I had coffee on the porch.
I would recommend this place. There are two apartments. The one I stayed in was quaint. The decorations reminded me of a time gone by and of my grandmother which made me feel at home. The location as good. Check in and check out was very easy. Bed was super comfortable.
We enjoyed the apartment and the surrounding neighborhood. The one bedroom apt was just what we expected - quiet and comfortable. The host was friendly and provided good info for us first time visitors to Athens.
The property was as described, It was clean and comfortable! The host was very helpful with tips about getting around Athens and the house is centrally located in town. I would definitely stay again!
Great location near downtown Athens, perfect place for visiting UGA and other nearby sights. Many convenient restaurants only a few minutes away. Was a comfortable stay for my wife and me, with everything we needed for our vacation. Jason and his family are perfect hosts.
Loved the house, the hosts and the complimentary beers! Thanks for making our stay grand!
Cute well appointed apartment in great neighborhood !
If you're looking for comfort, convenience, charm and hospitality, look no further. Jason and Misha are wonderful hosts and the apartment is just right. They graciously accommodated our bikes and even brought them inside when gray skies threatened. We had plenty of hot water, which is huge for me, and we slept like logs. The location is ideal if you want to walk or bike to downtown, Normaltown or the greenway. Loads of area information in the apartment, and Jason is always just a text away. Cardinal's Roost was a big part of a lovely weekend.
Enjoyable stay in a great location (could walk to several restaurants and a short drive to downtown/campus). Appreciated the graciousness of the Taylor family. Thank you to Misha for the post hike cookies...we totally earned everyone of those calories.
Easy. Clear instructions. Nice owner.
Great place and excellent host!
Just what you want, not too big, but big enough to be comfortable. Super clean and organized. Very friendly on-site owner, available but not intrusive, willing to help, but respectful of privacy. Comfortable memory foam mattress. Great downtown location. We will definitely stay here again.
Property was clean. Great old charm neighborhood and close to restaurants and downtown.
My wife and I really enjoyed the apartment. It was very nicely furnished and complete with a full kitchen, where we cooked our meals. The neighborhood was nice for a walk. It really was the perfect place for us and we would definitely stay there again.
Lovely property and area to stay in. Very quiet, clean and comfortable
We hard a wonderful time staying at this cozy and quaint abode. It was the perfect resting place for us while we visited family. Jason was kind and attentive to all our needs.
Everything was perfect, from the location to the ease of check in/check out. The apartment was great for our one night visit but would also be ideal for an extended stay. Thanks!
Jason was very helpful and we loved our stay here!
Great property. Very clean and just what we were looking for. We were pleasantly surprised by the snacks and local craft beers that were waiting when we arrived.
Clean, quiet and comfortable! Great location, central to everything Athens and a nice wide, shady street for easy parking! The fruit, nut and chocolate snacks were enjoyed by all. We will definitely roost here again!
This property was clean and close to everything. Very good price especially on a game day weekend.
Great location close to downtown Athens and the university campus. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful, with suggestions for excursions and places to eat and drink, but gave us our own space. We loved sitting out on the verandah for morning coffee or in the evening. The accommodation was clean, well presented and appropriately equipped for our holiday requirements.
We stayed overnight after moving my son into his dorm. After such an exhausting, emotional day, it was a great place to get away and rest up before our goodbyes the following day. The space was clean and cozy. I would definitely stay again!
Nice place, very clean. Good mattress and linens. Plenty of hot water. Thoughtful touches like premium coffee and fresh fruit. Good communication from host. Nice breakfast restaurant within walking distance. I recommend this place!
Location was perfect. Apartment was just right for the 3 of us. It was furnished with everything needed. Owner was very nice & friendly. He was willing to answer any questions& provided info about the area. He also gave you lots of privacy & also provided some fruit for us. Highly recommend this VRBO.
Great spot with all the right amenities. Jason was a great host!
The property was in a great location and was extremely quiet. It was also very clean, which is very important. Jason was the perfect host, meeting us on the front porch upon arrival, with cookies waiting on us in the room. We would definitely stay at this property again!!
This was a cute place that had everything we needed. We really enjoyed our stay!
Jason has a great little spot here in Athens. A nice 15 minute walk from downtown, the apartment provides exactly what you need for a trip to Athen. Great one bedroom setup with a mini kitchen, and tons of suggested restaurants to check out. Jason was a great help with some extra advice on things to do in the city. Would love to stay here again on our next trip to Athens!
Highly recommend this property. First time in Athens and first time lodging this way and our host couldn’t have been more accommodating. An absolutely beautiful neighborhood and it was nice not to have to drive everywhere. Super comfortable and quiet. Can’t wait to go back.
Jason was a very nice guy and was very welcoming. Apartment was really clean and private. Would differentially stay there again.
Homecoming weekend visit. Stayed in several vacation rentals in Athens over past few years. This place has everything you need for a weekend visit. Nice quiet neighborhood close to town. Jason is available to help if you need anything.
Booked this listing for a long weekend, and it was perfect. Jason is a wonderful host--went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed for our stay. The apartment is even more welcoming and comfortable than it appears in the pictures, and the location is great (decided to take a quick Uber or drive into town, but many of the neat spots in Normaltown are easily walkable). I'm a UGA alum, and the recommendations for things to do/places to see in Jason's guide book were spot on. Very much enjoyed our time, and I'm sure you'd do the same!
This rental was perfect for our quick trip to Athens- Jason was very accommodating, and the property was exactly as advertised. Although it is situated above an older home, the apartment was very modern and wonderfully decorated, and has its own exit separate from the home. We will definitely stay here again!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely little apartment. The location is perfect! A charming older home on a quiet street within walking distance to everything. We parked on the street and did not need our car at all. Jason was kind enough to surprise my boyfriend with his favorite late night snack...Oreos! The space was well appointed with everything you would need. As well as great recommendations for everything from Bars and Restaurants to popular walks in the area. We are saving this property for future visits to Awesome Athens! Thank you, Jason! :)
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Cardinal’s Roost ! Jason is a great host and was available for any questions we had about the property and the neighborhood . He provided local beer and snacks ! The apartment is private and very comfortable . It was perfect for our visit with our daughter and a football weekend ! It is away from the noise and near one of our favorite restaurants : Seabear !! We will definitely return !
We LOVED our stay here. Jason was very communicative from start to finish. The place is an apartment above his family home with a lot of privacy. The neighborhood is gorgeous and very conveniently located. My husband and I stayed here very comfortably for a few days and I highly recommend it if you want to experience Athens.
Awesome little apartment in an awesome part of town. Absolutely great - anything I could have needed to know about the rental & the area was included in a really handy guestbook. These hosts are PROS!
Thank you, Jason, your place was the perfect spot for my husband and me for our first visit to Athens. Very helpful and easy instructions. Lovely neighborhood, walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants. We also found a fantastic yoga studio right around the corner--myoga.
We could not be more pleased with our stay at Cardinal’s Roost! Jason was more than hospitable, going above and beyond our highest expectations. Our space was comfy, clean, and well appointed. Jason’s reccomedations of local dining establishments was spot on. The next time we are in Athens, we truly hope we can repeat our stay. Thank you!
Jason's property was in a very pleasant neighborhood within walking distance of all the action. The room was homey, the bed comfortable and the host very welcoming. Would definitely stay again!
At first I was concerned with being above the owner and that quickly melted away. We were greeted by fresh flowers, the beverage of our choice, umbrellas in case it rained, suggestions for dining and everything else and Jason himself. Seriously, customer service means EVERYTHING to me and he nailed it!! We really enjoyed ourselves! I almost stole the pillow because it was so wonderful! Thanks Jason!
Once in the place, it's very cute and comfortable for a quiet getaway. Wonderful hosts who provided lots of area detail. Easy walkable area close to great restaurants and downtown.
