    Family get together

    The property was clean, the owners were friendly and very helpful. The location was beautiful with a lot of trees providing fall color. Within a few minutes of anything we wanted to see or do. We very much enjoyed our stay.

    Great place - Great location - Donny's hospitality made it even better!

    The garage apartment was private, yet close to the main house which was convenient for when Donny brought fresh produce from the garden! The kitchen was well stocked with plates, utensils, etc - most importantly the mr coffee maker and filters! The place was very homey and comfortable. The sheets were clean and there was an abundance of clean towels. What really makes this off the charts though is the hospitality of Donny and Norma. Donny is seriously one of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure to meet, and my family and I look forward to staying here again. If you don't know what to do in the area, there are a lot of brochures on the downstairs coffee table. But better yet, I would recommend asking Donny! He responded to my email questions promptly and always offered help - especially grateful for his quick response time when we forgot the keys to the apartment! And we really enjoyed the box of card games as we unwound after a long day moving our daughter into our her new house. Many thanks to Donny and Norma for providing such a great place to stay.

    Great place to relax while enjoying nature

    Donny and Norma provide a great place to rent fully stocked with basic essentials. You can even wash your laundry throughout your stay in the standard size washer and dryer. I love the size of the place and internet service. I was able to catch up on my favorite shows on Netflix. I highly recommend this place. You will definitely enjoy the privacy and the wildlife that randomly appears. My dog Hunter enjoyed chasing the squirrels. However he was unsuccessful because they would scurry up the large oak trees.

    We enjoyed your very cozy garage apartment close to UGA. We were moving which can be hectic and Donny was very helpful with everything. The apartment was completely furnished with everything one would need and my dog and cat were welcome. The quiet garage and private property were perfect for us an the animals. We really enjoyed the versatility of the environment. Thank you, Jane and Pete

    My dog Hunter and I enjoyed the tranquility of the country while staying just a few miles from the city. With the abundance of squirrels, an occasional fawn, a wild 🦃 and even a brave squirrel who greeted me one morning at the kitchen window.

    Very Homey and comfortable

    My husband and I stayed here for 4 days while visiting my sister in Watkinsville. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. We highly recommend. We plan to return again next year.

    Wonderful Stay

    This little apartment was exactly what I needed for my recent stay in Athens, Ga. My little poodle was having eye surgery and I needed a quiet place for us to stay during his treatments. The apartment was clean and very comfortable. Donny and Norma were wonderful people and made me feel safe and comfortable while respecting my privacy. They left muffins, bagels and cream cheese and fresh fruit and juice for me. It was in a great location. It was 15 minutes away from my doctor's office but felt like it was miles away from town. I would most definitely stay there again and would recommend it to anyone. Thanks Donny and Norma.

    I was traveling with my toddler and small dog. When we arrived we were greeted by Donnie. He was very nice. My first worry was the stairs, they are very high and alittle rickety. But they held me and my son and all the trips down to get luggage. It was super hot in the apartment (88) as the A.C. was off. I quickly turned it on to cool things down for us. There was a sweet note along with some muffins and goodies to welcome us! The place could have been cleaner (I have a small child that crawls on the floor) I had to sweep and run the carpet sweeper and kill one tree roach. As we went to use the microwave there was a plate in there with a half eaten cookie on it that got missed by cleaning crew I guess... haha. Other than those few things this place served our needs well. It was easy to find, quiet, and peaceful. If in the area again we would probably look into staying here again.

    Southern Hospitality at its best

    Donny and his family were absolutely wonderful. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. Their customer service was beyond expectations. My partner and I were in the area for a law enforcement class which required long hours and no small amount of exertion. Having a private, comfortable place to rest and prepare for the next day was exactly what was needed and provided by Donny. We originally looked for nice hotels in the area and they were all booked which led me to VRBO. I wont make that mistake again. Any future travels to the area will begin with checking with Donny and this locations availability. Thank you sir for your outstanding Hospitality. Bill
