Cardinals Roost Virginia Apartment: On Boulevard - Sleeps 4

Athens, Georgia

One of 2 apartments that roost above a 1902 home in the heart of the historic Boulevard neighborhood.

One bedroom with queen size bed and TV/living room with futon that folds down to fit 2 adults. Full, urban kitchen opens to the living room. Cable TV and Wifi provided. Free curbside parking on wide street. Private, covered stairwell entrance.

Sidewalks line the neighborhood creating an easy walk to Downtown, Bottleworks on Prince Avenue, Normaltown, and Sanford Stadium.

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.

    I don't normally consider charming when booking a room, but I will going forward as this apartment has established a new, valued criteria for me. Beyond the property, the host is quite helpful and knows a lot about the area. I'll be back!

    Such a cute, quaint apartment. Jason, our host, was very friendly and attentive. The apartment was stocked with all the necessary items for a night away from the house. It was a safe area and quiet street. Close to downtown.

    This apartment is perfect for one or two people. It's location is excellent in that you are not far at all from where all the action is. Walking on the Nature trails at the Nature Center & on the different trails at the Athens Botanical Gardens was absolutely wonderful! And Jason could not have been more accommodating; I would highly recommend staying here!

    I recently stayed at the Cardinals Roost for a week while attending a conference at Georgia Center. Jason and Misha were very considerate hosts and made sure that I had everything I needed for the week, including snacks of my choice when I arrived. The apartment was the perfect size and very comfortable. The apartment is in the Historic Boulevard District and is within walking distance of several restaurants and shops. Downtown Athens is about 5 minutes away by car or 20 minutes on foot if you like to walk through great neighborhoods with beautiful old homes. I'd highly recommend staying here!

    This great little efficiency apartment was exactly the right fit for an Athens weekend! The owners were very friendly and responsive -- we even got homemade cookies and snacks on our arrival! The apartment was very clean and comfortable with easy on-street parking. The neighborhood location gives easy access to the UGA campus and downtown Athens. Would definitely stay here again!

    Creature comforts: The apartment was immaculate. Good quality bedding and towels; several pillows with different degrees of firmness. The mattress in the bedroom was perfect for my less-than-perfect back. Quiet heating/air unit for great climate control. Tissues/toilet paper/paper towels were soft and high quality - no dollar store thin stuff. Quiet at night. Basic kitchen utensils, coffee, sugar, fresh 1/2 and 1/2. Spacious closet and drawer storage. With a futon and a foldout couch in the living room this was great for my two teenagers and me. As there's no door between l.r. and bedroom I wouldn't suggest this apt for two couples, but one couple and some kids would be comfortable. Full bar of soap & shampoo provided. Host: Jason was very friendly and altogether professional. Communication was always easy and prompt. He met us with a smile as we drove up, and took time to show us the amenities; he even set up the futon for us. He's a family man and it shows. He asked what snacks we would like and provided fresh fruit as I'd requested. Location: Lovely, safe street with beautiful early 1900's houses. Easy parking. 5 min drive to downtown; 5 minute walk to Heirloom Cafe - this was a bit pricey but the food was great and all staff were warm and welcoming. Appearance: So so cozy! Surprising, quirky paint colors; furniture from nearly every decade of the 1900's. We felt at home immediately. Overall this was a fantastic place to stay. The instruction manual in the apt says Jason and his family are new at renting their home - I've stayed in many VRBO properties in the States, England and France and I think they are doing this like pros.

    This neighborhood is the perfect location in Athens for a quiet stay within charming walking distance to great restaurants, a book store, coffee shop, co-op grocery and more. The architecture and the different quirks of residents in the historic district in and around Boulevard captivated our attention as we walked leisurely to breakfast at Big City Bread. The hosts share great tips about the neighborhood and restaurants, even the streets that are most charming- though any meandering proves to be so! They have this apartment set up efficiently with just the right amount of comfort. The stove is gas, so it’s fun to cook on. They had Creature Comfort beer waiting on us!, nice teas and coffee ready to brew, a kettle, and let us feel free to enjoy it on the porch. Jason and family were so kind and considerate of us being guests. Even though they live there, we felt they were giving us the space we needed and the apartment is set aside and upstairs in a way that is totally separate and not invasive. Plenty of parking on the wide street. Plenty of pillows, towels, etc. We had beds enough for 3 kids and 2 parents. We highly recommend this easy and inexpensively charming way to get to know Athens!
