A click of your personal remote device will open the private driveway gate to your own parking space and entrance to your terrace level apartment in a beautiful, close-in Atlanta neighborhood - just 15 minutes from Midtown, Emory, CDC, Georgia Tech, downtown historic and contemporary sites. Shopping, golf courses, Stone Mountain Park, and all the professional and college sports events and concerts imaginable are nearby!
When 'at home,' though, enjoy the quiet, private comfort and amenities of a large terrace level apartment that includes spacious rooms, fireplace, granite kitchen, a pool table, game table, and large flat screen TV. Cable, Netflix, and free Wi-Fi.
One large bedroom has a California king size bed. Two additional beds are available for children or adults and can be placed wherever you like.
You'll REALLY feel special when you open the leaded glass doors to a separate, private wing, revealing an exotic spa room with an elevated hot tub, sauna, steam shower, lounge area, wet bar, and bathroom. In the evening, dim the lights in the dome ceiling of the spa room to create the mood for fun and relaxation.
Enjoy the same apartment that was occupied for four months in 2014 by an actor who was in Atlanta to star in a television series being filmed here!
The terrace level apartment is in a large, beautiful family home in a safe, quiet neighborhood. Interstate I-85, which is a two-minute drive away, leads right into Midtown and Downtown.
This property is a private residence, and I'm sure that guests will want to respect and take care of the property.
Unique and beautiful property in a wonderful, safe neighborhood. Cozy and comfortable everywhere you go from the spa to the living room to the bed! I enjoyed my stay and felt very secure while my husband had surgery at Emory Spine Ctr. which was very close by. Sylvia is a great host. Thank you so much, Sylvia! :)
I had a great experience staying here and hope it’s available the next time I’m in town...
This was an amazing rental. Thank you so much. Sylvia for everything. I would definitely love to return here next January.
My stay was amazing and the property gets 5 stars. The property description is accurate and it is now the only place I will stay whenever I visit Atlanta. The host is available and attentive to any needs. I truly enjoyed my stay!!!!
Everything at this property was just as described. The spa wing was so relaxing and the steam shower is a must after a long drive! We will definitely be back!
Just as advertised! Sylvia knows what she is doing. She is kind & accessible without hovering. Such a great place to relax. I grew up in the area so know it well. It was just a great stay! Looking forward to the next time I can come back! Thank you so very much Sylvia!
Our 30th Anniversary was perfect! We were seeking a romantic private get away close to our home, and this retreat did NOT disappoint! The Jacuzzi/spa room was just perfect! We enjoyed the large library book collection! We are book enthusiasts so the collection was awesome! The Owners were very respectful of our privacy and very helpful with obtaining our show tickets. The home is very well marked to find lights and I was so impressed with the lighting system! Very well stocked with any essentials you may need. Parking very secure, very nice safe neighborhood. So many games, puzzles, etc. This is a truly great getaway for romantic, families, and business travel. Thank You Sylvia for your wonderful hospitality and allowing us the use of your beautiful retreat.
Sylvia was A+ from beginning to end and that is why our guests request this location annually! Just a great location that makes a hotel seem “less than”.
Beautiful place in a nice location. Close to everything. Very clean and comfortable, especially the bed!! Silvia is a great host. She is quick to respond if you need anything. The spa room is wonderful . We would stay here again.
It was a great location. Perfect for kids and adults alike.
The property and and the surrounding neighborhood were very clean, quiet, and felt very safe. Our family ejoyed the hot tub, nice big screen tv with Netflix, and billiard table. Would definitely recommend booking accommodations here, you will not be disappointed.
Sylvia could not be more accommodating We were in between moving and our stay was exactly what we needed
My stay was amazing and the hostesses was very informative and detailed. The location and set up of the home is amazing and great for a romantic or family getaway. Lots of space. Also it was very easy to communicate with Sylvia even when we forgot a few things behind! Hope to visit again soon.
My family and I really enjoyed our stay. We utilized the spa wing during the times we wanted to relax. The pool table and games allowed us to have some late night fun after we’d been out exploring. It had everything we could want or need for a getaway. I loved how all the lights were labeled and we never had to wonder which switch worked what. Instructions were clear on how to work everything. I love that it had a little country feel, while being in the city. I just loved it...period! Thanks for sharing your place with us.
We really enjoyed the spa area and all the room. Sylvia was so nice and welcoming, it felt like a home away from home!
We (my husband and I) spent week in this large, private apartment which is perfect for visit to Atlanta if you have a car. We drove to Marta station (15 minutes) for a quick ride to downtown (20 minutes) to attend a conference. We were also able to eat at good restaurants in the Chamblee area and visit Atlanta tourist attractions with our car.
This really is a lovely retreat where you can relax and escape, but still access Atlanta. Every need has been anticipated and met beautifully. Thanks, Sylvia!
Cozy well kept and great for a romantic getaway or self indulgence...property owner very pleasant and personable...
What a stunning home!!! We enjoyed every moment of our stay. The spa room was exactly what we wanted to have while spending our NYE weekend in Atlanta. The home had so much to do we wish we could have stayed longer. If we ever come back to Atlanta this is where we will be looking to stay! 1000 Stars!!!! Thank you
This place was so nice and cozy you don’t even have to go anywhere as long as you bring food & drinks! The location is perfect if you do want to get out and about. Great restaurants, Stone Mountain, grocery stores-anything you want or need is very close. The neighborhood is beautiful, safe & quiet. We brought 2 children with us (7 & 12) and they weren’t bored for a minute between the hot tub, pool table, games, cable tv. The bed was VERY comfortable. GREAT place!
Spacious apartment with a spa wing. Nice place to stay if you have business in Atlanta, have a car and would like to enjoy an indoor hot tub after a day of meetings or sightseeing. Great value and unique experience for the price - can’t beat it.
Sylvia place was amazing it had everything you needed plus more. What I loved most about it was it felt like a home not like a rental I would definitely go back.
We loved the spa room, the really big TV and the fireplace. We had one small issue with the fireplace but the owner came down and fixed it. The apartment is very large but the kitchen space is very small. It was fine for just the two of us, though. The neighborhood is beautiful and we walked around each day feeling very secure. The property is just a few miles to the Atlanta Metro where you can park for free and ride into the city if you don’t want to deal with the traffic and parking. We recommend this property highly.
Our stay at this private retreat in a secluded neighborhood was exceptional. The large living space complete with well-equipped kitchen, spacious bedroom, big screen TV, and a pool table was fabulous. We loved the spa wing with hot tub, sauna, wet bar room and steam shower. The spa wing had its own heating/cooling system and it worked quite well. There is a private parking area with a remote controlled gate and the entrance to the terrace apartment was steps away. All spaces were clean and nicely decorated. It was very convenient to the highway, stores and markets. We found a Dunkin' for our morning coffee runs (although a coffee pot is provided in the apartment) just 2 miles down the road. At the end of our stay, we had the pleasure of meeting the homeowner (Sylvia) and she was extremely nice. We completely enjoyed our stay in the terrace apartment.
Spacious accommodations with everything we needed, located close to the highway, made it very convenient to travel anywhere we were going. The large master bedroom with a very comfortable king size bed helped us enjoy a good night's sleep. We spent a considerable amount of time in the family room unwinding after a busy day. The SPA ROOM was breath taking, and just as pictured. Sylvia's communication was excellent, and she ensured we were enjoying our stay. Definitely 5 star accommodations !
Loistavasti tilaa, upea talo ja naapurusto. Spa on luksusta. Löytyy myös iso TV , biljardipöytä ja pelejä. Keittiö on pieni mutta tarpeeksi iso. kaikki toimii ja hyvin viihdyimme!
The King bed is awesome while the two pullout beds are just okay. Our guests were in town for golf and called it a perfect guy’s spot.
Sylvia was a great host! Although we never saw or met her, we felt that she was right there for anything we needed. The accommodations were great! We enjoyed the spa area, the pool table, and the big screen TV. Sylvia left detailed instructions and info about the property. The location isn't bad at all, eventhough it is NE of the city, it isn't too far out. Check-in and check-out was super easy. Would definitely stay here again!
Felt like home with everything you could possibly need. Very clean with easy access to all highways. Hosts were everything you could ask for in a host.
Great location. Super accommodations. Sylvia was very responsive to inquiries and provided good information on the surrounding neighborhood re grocery stores and restaurants. Apartment was very nice. Enjoyed relaxing in the spa & shooting pool/watching movies as well. Hope to get back to Atlanta in the future & if I do I will definetly stay with Sylvia again!
My husband and I loved it. The location was private but close to grocery store, coffee, pizza etc. A 25 to 35 min drive to Midtown depending on weekday or weekend and time. We played pool and board games to relax after day of sightseeing. There's not a lot of sunlight in the living area but we didn't mind it given it was sunny and hot outside. It was nice to get into a cooler and a little darker escape. There is plenty of sun in the spa wing of you feel you need it. Sylvia was great, very responsive. We would rent again if in Atlanta area again in future.
We selected this place because it was near a conference that we were attending. This apartment made us feel as if we were home with all of the amenities as well as the extras. We used all three of the steam shower, sauna, and the hot tub each day we were there, plus cozied up watching tv on their huge screen after spending time shopping and nightlife. It was a wonderful to be in Atlanta without feeling you were in a big city due to the location being in a quiet neighborhood. Overall, we were able to enjoy a relaxing and fun anniversary celebration without the kids. We look forward to coming back to this place again the next time we come to Atlanta!
I love the spaciousness and spa retreat type room, so relaxing . My husband and I was able to work and relax
Very nice place to stay. Very peaceful while still close to town. Everything was nice and clean.
Stayed 6 wonderful nights in Sylvia’s home. Sylvia and her husband were warm and welcoming. Very quick response time for inquiries. The apartment is spacious and has everything you need. We enjoyed the hot tub, pool, steam shower and sauna. Very close to the city and things to do. Favorite places to eat were Sweet Auburn BBQ and Desta Ethiopian. If we are in the area again would definitely stay here!
.. silvia and wendle made our stay very nice .. every thing you could want was in the place . rooms were very big ...silvia was very helpful in wrighting down directions for places to go...…. the jacuzzi was my best in it nearly every night.. cant say enough about the place .give it a try its wounderful ….. cant go wrong. they have lots of things to do even if it rains . shops very near and things to do and see.. thankyou silvia and wendle for making our stay very very nice...
Great place to stay, very accommodating and quick responses when we had questions. thanks again
This was surely a Home away from Home! It was clean, beautifully decorated and the hosts were so accommodating. Located in a gorgeous and safe neighborhood. I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for peace and comfort. My grandchildren came to visit and were very entertained by the pool, the pool table, all the board games and spa! I hope to someday stay there again.
Great hosts. Very helpful.
Lots of space. Lots of charm. Lots of privacy. Convenient and comfortable. Amazing spa wing! We are making plans for our return.
We stayed here for a long weekend in mid-April. We had a nice time and Sylvia was always very responsive to emails/texts. She was more than willing to make suggestions of things to do in the area with kids and places to eat. I was disappointed to find out the pool area was closed when we went (only open summer months according to VRBO website, although specific months not stated). As a family from the Midwest, we made the assumption that 70/80 degree weather is warm enough to go swimming! That also meant that the pool deck was closed and there was nowhere for us to sit outside to enjoy the weather or have a meal. We had one day of significant rain, and the dome in the spa leaked on the floor A LOT! The owners were already aware of the issue and we were told to put down towels. The last thing you want to be doing on vacation is moping up water off of the floor! It also makes for a safety hazard on tile.
Everything you need and want! Amazing.
Im extremely upset with myself for not find this place a long time ago. Whenever I return to Atlanta this is the only place I want to stay. Hilton...step your game up. The spa wing is lovely and the entire property is very well maintained. The owner are very responsive to your needs and will make sure you are happy with your stay. Im looking forward to my next trip.
This basement apartment had it all - privacy, comfort, luxurious hot tub, fireplace, big screen tv, and off-street parking. It was the perfect spot for two adults and two 20-something children visiting Atlanta for the long weekend. The location is convenient to shopping and eating in Atlanta. I would highly recommend this VRBO. Thank you!
Myself, my wife, 5yo, & 7month old stayed here for a week around the new year. We had a great experience! The property is as advertised, and close to everything. Very cozy, with all the comforts of home. Not sure why you would stay in a regular hotel room with a property like this to enjoy. Owners were very nice, and accommodating. We will be back!
We very much enjoyed our stay at this property. It is well maintained and the host is very nice and helpful. The sauna/hot tub room is great.
My wife and I haven't been to Atlanta in years and wanted to visit for the weekend. At the same time, we did not want to stay in the downtown area due to traffic, parking, etc., but rather within a 15-minute drive of this area. Found this location and loved the experience. The owner of the residence was extremely gracious and accommodating. She provided a lot of information about the area and made you feel extremely comfortable. The space was extremely clean and spacious. The hot tub area - with sauna - was fantastic! Would highly recommend. Thank you for a great trip.
This is our second stay with Sylvia, we were here in June for over 3 weeks and Sylvia and Wendell were the best hosts ever. The apartment is absolutely gorgeous in June I brought my husband, daughter and mother with me, and loved the apartment and all the amenities, it was summer so we used the pool, hot tub and had a great time and it was an excellent base for exploring Atlanta. We loved it that much then when I returned with my son for 2 weeks in Atlanta I instantly rebooked the apartment with Sylvia and it didn't disappoint again. They were so helpful with anything we needed even loaning us a cooler so we could tailgate at the Falcon games. I will stay here every time I'm in Atlanta. I recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to stay in Atlanta. Sylvia and Wendell have now become friends are the nicest people you could meet, love to you both I give both the apartment and the hosts 5 stars plus you will not be disappointed staying here
My husband and I stayed here the week of Thanksgiving. We were in Atlanta to see our 2 sons who attend GT. The rental was everything you could ask for - clean, spacious, comfortable, well stocked kitchen and baths, and the awesome spa wing. We used the hot tub and saunas daily during our visit. The rental was large enough to handle our Thanksgiving dinner, as well as watching the football games on TV, and then playing pool and board games later in the evening. It was truly a relaxing getaway! The owners are extremely helpful and thoughtful. They provide all the necessities in their rental as well as local information on restaurants and shopping. We are planning to use this again when we visit Atlanta. It is superior to a hotel stay in every way imaginable. We would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Atlanta as you are only about 15 min from downtown.
The spa area was just wonderful and the location was perfect to downtown or the perimeter. Will certainly boon again in the future. Thank you!
Thank you for a wonderful stay at the apartment. i have told many people about the place and how helpful and accomodating you were to us. We will definitely return when we come back to Atlanta.
Sylvia's hospitality was beyond amazing. The place was clean. If was the ultimate experience of being relaxed. Offered a lot of options if you wanted to stay inside the house like the spa, movies, pool table, or games. She listed the local restaurants and continuously checked in to make sure all was going well. You will most definitely want to book your next vacation here
The apartment was spacious, well-eqipped, secluded but not far from all Atlanta has to offer. The spa wing with hot tub, steam, shower and sauna was our favorite part. The kids loved the pool and diving board. Downtown is a half hour drive, close and convenient, although to be honest we didn't want to leave much! Perfect for a couple retreat or small family. (There is a small bed in the family room area and they can provide a second bed on request.) The family room area with TV and pool table is huge, plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen is a full kitchen with stove, fridge, dishwasher and deep sink. We ate most of our meals in, and the place was stocked with everything we could need. The property is beautifully landscaped. Really unique property and we can't wait to go back.
Stayed here for 6 weeks with my husband and two smalls kids. We loved it! Pool was awesome as was the steam shower. I'm sure hottub and sauna would be awesome, too, but it was too hot out for us to use them over the pool. Bed was very comfortable. Sylvia and Wendell are very kind. There is no way we could have been away for as long as we were without all the comforts of Sylvia's home. Thank you!
Took my wife here for her 30th birthday and had some of her friends from atlanta over. The owners where great about letting us have guest. We used there grill and everyone had a great time. The steam shower is a MUST if you visit this property. Thank you Sylvia for making my wife's birthday awesome.
What a wonderful way to spend a spring break! A quiet place in the city well within easy driving of downtown. The apartment was well supplied with things to do for all ages. Plenty of room to sleep and relax. According to the kids, the pool, sauna, hot tub and steam shower were the best thing going. Thanks, Sylvia, for sharing your place....lots of memories made here. We hope to come back again.
We stay here every time we are visiting Atlanta. Love everything about it, spa wing is wonderfully relaxing and family here in Atlanta loves being able to join us for a great evening in, after a day out and about in the city.
My wife, 2 adult children and I stayed here for 3 nights. We arrived after a 7-hour car ride and fired up the hot tub and had a few cocktails. What a nice treat at the end of a long day. This apartment is awesome and the pictures actually reflect what it really looks like. Our family really enjoyed all the room to stretch out and relaxed playing pool and board games at night. Everything was very clean - especially the hot tub. The owners drain and clean it after each guest leaves. How nice is that? We will definitely stay there again when visiting the Atlanta area! Andy & Cindy
The perfect place to stay! Comfortable, clean, luxurious. We couldn't have asked for more!
Great location...quiet...absolutely wonderful in all regards
My husband and I enjoyed staying at your Atlanta retreat. It was a great location, easy to find, and not far from nice restaurants. Very comfortable place to stay and just hang out. We had a small problem and the owners were super quick getting everything back on track. Owners are very gracious and so accommodating. You will love staying here, with all the amenities they have to offer during your stay. Hopefully we will return to enjoy it again! Brenda and Danny Cross
Nicely appointed and very comfortable and quiet Would definitely consider renting again The owner, Sylvia is very concerned about your needs as does a wonderful job of making sure you are comfortable
First time I traveled alone in some time. I welcomed the secure area of the apartment since I was traveling alone. Sylvia was great to answer questions straight away. Although the apartment is attached to the main house, I never heard anyone. My brother lives in the Atlanta area ... it was great to have him over for lunch or dinner followed by a game of pool or chess. Plenty of room to relax and feel at home! As it was November, we did not get an opportunity to enjoy the hot tube or steam room. The company I work for has a local office in Atlanta; getting in and around Atlanta is challenging in the mornings and late afternoons. Overall, I do recommend these accommodations. You will not be disappointed. Safe travels!
Words can't even express the beauty and feeling you get from this home away from home. WOW!! is not enough. This was my 1st trip to Georgia or the south and this was the cherry on the top...great communication with Sylvia from when I was researching vrbos which put me at ease and all thru our trip. Nothing was left out it was literally Home away from Home. Close enough to everything but far enough from the hustle and bustle that gave us the tranquil, serene beauty of Atlanta. The minute we left I wanted to book my next trip just to stay here again. Can't wait to return! I'll plan my Georgia visits around the availability because this is our southern Home away from here in Hawaii.
It was everything we expected. Very comfortable . Would certainly recommend this unit plenty of room & very clean. Also a beautiful neighborhood. The location was very convenient to all area attractions.
We loved this place, and talk about going back often. The hot tub and steam shower were so relaxing. The whole hot tub room is beautiful - like you're in a 5-star spa a million miles away. We also loved playing pool and hanging out in the living room on the big, comfy couch. Sylvia was very accommodating and an excellent communicator. If you're looking for a cozy, private, romantic escape, this is a great choice. Can't recommend this place enough.
I absolutely loved staying at Cravey Trail. It is a convenient location to downtown. Sylvia was absolutely hospitable. Could not say enough positive things about my stay.
If you are looking for an oasis in Atlanta, this is the place to stay! This property has everything you could want and more. Sylvia couldn't be a better hostess and you will find this luxury apartment to be very relaxing, clean and inviting. I'm so grateful I had a chance to visit!
This place is great. lot's of space and very quite home in the heart of ATL. The owners are only taxt or call away for anything you may need. southern hospitality at its finest. I would definitely stay here again and again if I visit Atlanta in the future.
The apartment was the perfect base for touring neighborhoods as we consider relocation. Syvlia and Wendell are gracious hosts who were always quick to respond and made sure we were comfortable. It is a basement apartment but doesn't feel like it, especially in the wonderful spa room where the light just floods in. There was a lot more space than we expected, with a very large and comfortable bedroom and large recreation room (we made very good use of the pool table every night!). After busy days driving around (often getting stuck in incredibly heavy traffic - the only downside to our visit), it was wonderful to be able to relax in the hut tub! We even took a quick dip in the heated pool towards the end of the week. We very much appreciated everything that was provided for our use. We had a very enjoyable stay and would not hesitate to book a return visit if we make progress with our relocation plans! Thank you! :-)
Extremely nice set-up for a get-a-way vacation or business travel. Very private and cozy and Sylvia was a great hostess. We are from the North Atlanta area and just needed an escape. We had a great time in the spa and pool and more specifically the steam shower, Wow! I have got to get one of those :-) (very refreshing). Beautiful home with all the amenities you could ask for. You will not be disappointed. Thanks again for sharing your home.
The apartment is very clean. The spa and pool are nice. It is very spacious and homey. I was traveling with 2 other adults and the 3rd adult stayed on the roll away bed that was located in a somewhat secluded area. She said it was fine. We played pool on the wonderful pool table, played games,(the property is stocked with games and books). We also cooked on the grill by the pool one night and had all the utensils, plates, etc. to do so. I have stayed at places with spas before and the room always seems a little musty but not here. The spa room was fantastic! Sylvia and Wendell are wonderful hosts and even offered to help us with our luggage rack. The place is in a good location, north Atlanta. I wouldn't recommend staying in downtown, unless you want to spend 2x as much for a decent hotel room without all the amenities. We will definitely stay at this place again if ever in Atlanta!
I stayed at this property for 9 days and was absolutely blown away. The apartment is beautiful with plenty of room. It has a parking spot that is big enough for 2 cars and sits behind a security gate with your own entry beeper for opening and closing the gate as you come and go. Extremely convenient and safe. The neighborhood is very quiet and just gives you a nice warm feel as you pull up to the house. Another great perk, the spa!!! It is absolutely wonderful! You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here. I will book here every time I am in the Atlanta area. Wendell and Slyvia are so nice and helpful. 5 Star rating.....
The home was absolutely amazing it was so comforting. It was a wonderful neighborhood to be able to walk ride bicycles at anytime of the day. It was a shopping division about 5 minutes away from the house and it had publix which was really helpful if you needed to make a quick run. If you want good pizza there is also a Marco's Pizza in the same location as publix. I really enjoyed having my own pool it had a diving board toys for kids to play with in pool and also a grill where you can cook. The spa room was absolutely to die for you open the doors to this secluded room and see a beautiful peaceful room. It contained a hot tub which was absolutely amazing. The steam shower was so spacious and amazing it contained a sauna and a wet bar. I also enjoyed looking at the stained glass in the spa room. The bedroom was very spacious and the roll away bed was very comfortable. I really enjoyed the pool table and the Huge t.v. was very helpful with watching the NBA playoffs. i will definitely recommend this abode to anyone who just wants to relax and have a good time. It is really one of a kind and the owners are very professional and they text you to check and see if everything is fine. Also another bonus was the gated parking it made us feel more secure.
This beautiful homeaway was exactly as pictured, and Sylvia made sure that I had everything I needed! Clean, comfortable and relaxing. The spa wing was absolutely perfect. It has a very tranquil atmosphere both in the morning (with the sunlight coming through the glass blocking) and evening (with the built in lighting). I travelled alone for a business trip, and it was great for a private getaway--I spent most of my time in the spa wing. It would also be perfect for a couple or a family due to the variety of amenities! I truly hope I get another opportunity to stay here! I also ate at Purnima Bangladeshi Cuisine during my stay, and it was very fast and delicious. You can order online for pickup or delivery (if you don't want to leave the spa!).
Our boys especially enjoyed playing pool and poker after a day of sight seeing. I enjoyed the hot tub and steam shower. Wonderful weekend!
Our family of four stayed at the property in March for a sporting function that was going on in downtown Atlanta. Even though the property is not in downtown Atlanta, it is very easily accessible to the interstate and is just a very short drive to most anywhere. One day we drove for 15 minutes and arrived at Stone Mountain, and the next day we drove for another 15 minutes and were in downtown Atlanta, and another day we drove for another 15-20 minutes and were able to enjoy Zoo Atlanta. We enjoyed that the apartment was very quiet and secluded after our busy, noisy days in the city. The apartment was VERY roomy and had so many amenities that we didn't even have time to use them all. I cooked most of our meals in the apartment and the kitchen was well stocked with pans and dishes. The beds were comfortable and the owners were very nice to have two very comfortable foldaway beds ready to accommodate our teenage children. The spa wing was an absolute treat and a nice place to enjoy a morning coffee or take a late night steam shower or hot tub soak. If we could make any recommendations it would be to install a small TV in the master bedroom area and to have four barstools available at the kitchen island instead of two. I would definitely recommend this location to anyone looking to stay in the Atlanta area!
The apartment was centrally located to everything. It was extremely quiet and the spa was outstanding. Highly recommend this property!
It was a surprise getaway for our anniversary. She was a bit surprised that I didn't choose something in downtown Atlanta, but once we got there, we didn't want to leave the spa, and the location didn't seem to matter. Don't get me wrong, it's not far from downtown Atlanta. There is a Publix and a small strip mall close by. We just went downtown once, and the rushed back to the spa. Yes, I said the spa... complete with a jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. The steam room has a shower, and let me be the first to tell you... you've not lived until you've taken a cold shower in a steam room. When we first pulled up to the house, the gate was left open for us. We pulled in, toward the back and pulled down a small hill. The guest entrance to the basement apartment was secured and had an alarm, so we felt safe the entire time. The gate shuts with a remote that is like a garage door opener. Another thing to note, that even though we stayed in a wing of the mansion, they never bothered us. In fact, we never even seen them. So privacy wasn't an issue either. The spa wing was private too, it only attached to the basement apartment area, and not like a community shared spa wing. The place was large and immaculate. The bed, pillows and linens were super comfortable. We were there during Super Bowl, so we liked that the tv was huge. Otherwise, we probably wouldn't have watched tv. The kitchen was fully equipped. So we bought some chicken wings for Super Bowl, threw them in the oven to stay heated and had our own Super Bowl party. They also had a bunch of DVDs and board games, if you get bored. We didn't get bored, but we played Scrabble out in the spa wing. The pool table was an added perk too. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. In fact, downtown Atlanta doesn't look so appealing after all.
The stay at your apartment was outstanding in every way. The apartment was very neat and clean, Sylvia was right on when she said there was not another like it in Atlanta. It was very spacious and had everything that you could want and more. The spa wing is something to die for, I have never seen one like it before. The sauna, spa and steam room were well used. Sylvia you have a gem here, and we will try to book your apartment every time we come to Atlanta, thank you very much for the outstanding Accomodations.
The stay here was totally awesome. So much room to enjoy our stay. Very clean and private. Enjoyed the large bed and bedroom, the large living room and TV. I liked the idea of having gated parking even though the area seemed to be pretty nice. Saw several people enjoying their walks on the hilly streets. My favorite part was the spa area. Took all of my showers in the shower/steam room. So roomy in there. The sauna was nice too. Loved the hot tub. The drive to the airport was around 35 minutes. I’ll definitely look to stay here again in my next stay in Atlanta.
We enjoyed our stay very much! We were really impressed with how clean the apartment was. The owners seemed to have thought of everything to make our stay comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. And the spa wing was great! Located near grocery stores and restaurants. One drawback is that the thermostat is on main level. But the owners were nice enough to adjust according to our need. I wish I would've known that it was a basement apt but after getting there and realizing it, it still ended up being a wonderful experience. I would stay here again and would recommend it to others.
We thoroughly enjoyed our weeks stay at the private retreat. It had everything we needed. Complete privacy, very quiet, beautiful neighbourhood, the best bed I've ever slept in, very comfortable, lovely spa. Loved the steam shower!! The bed was so comfy we seemed to sleep in every day! Location was great, it seemed to be a short drive to the tourist locations. 20 minutes to most attractions. The publix store nearby carried every food item we looked for when we wanted precooked food to take home or cook. (the fried chicken was tasty) Thank you Sylvia for the warm hospitality and answering any questions we had relating to the city! Would come back in a heartbeat! Go Bulldogs! Go Braves!
Great stay! Owners were very sweet and accommodating.
This property is perfectly situated for moving our son into Emory; it is centrally located to downtown, Buckhead and Decatur. It is a beautiful place with the spa offerings kicking it up from other rentals. It really only sleeps 2. Sylvia is a charming, warm host, ensuring we had everything we needed.
This place was a complete surprise! It felt like a home away from home. Tons of room, great amenities and a gracious host. I would recommend this as a welcome change to business travel or great for a small family. Very private. We will return.
our hostess was very nice and made the stay pleasant and comfortable. Quiet neighborhood but very close to our meeting. Overall, recommend this location!
Just returned from a great family trip to Atlanta. This home is located in a safe and quiet neighborhood just outside of the city. It was a quick trip in and out of the city to area attractions. The owners are so accommodating and friendly, really making you feel comfortable and at home! At the end of a long day touring the city, it was really wonderful to return to this little piece of home and cook dinner, relax in the spa area, play games and watch movies! We will be back!
Pros: quiet, neighborhood setting. The space is lovely, pool table, spa and access to the yard. Furnishings are excellent. Hosts are quiet and very accommodative. Cons: only one. The thermostat is upstairs and can't be separately controlled.
We enjoyed the rental very much! We thought that the location was ideal - a quick drive to MARTA station and a very quiet neighborhood. The apartment was quite and clean and had everything that we needed for a relaxing week away. The pool was beautiful and the spa was luxurious! Owners were very friendly, accommodating and we enjoyed their company greatly. We look forward to staying here again next year!
Everything was awesome! Clean, kitchen was perfect! Hot Tub amazing, privacy and felt exclusive!!!!! Many great restuarants within 3 miles! I will stay here again! Our 12 year old loved it as well. wiFi for his playstation 4 and he loved the pool table!
The apartment was great! The location was great. It was located in a quiet residential neighborhood and convenient to all the local attractions that we visited with easy access to 2 major freeways. The Spa wing was great! Nice to sit and relax there in the evenings and unwind. Sylvia was very easy to deal with and accommodating. We would stay here again anytime. Thanks for the great week!!
Great spa amenities and lovely location. Quiet and secure residential neighborhood but extremely quick access to Virginia Highlands, Midtown, Piedmont Park, Buckhead, Stone Mountain and the Woodruff Center for the Arts/The High. Lovely hosts too! We will be back again.
We have used VRBO many times throughout our travels and this property was one of my husband's favorite. The neighborhood was so quiet and peaceful. Freeway access was easy. The private spa was unbelievable. We joked that we could just stay in the spa and not even use the house. Our security deposit was refunded promptly, which is always appreciated. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing stay.
My husband and I stayed here with our two children. It was kind of a last minute stay and Sylvia took care of everything so quickly and promptly. She was quick on answering every email or text message and was very helpful with our stay. The apartment itself was amazing. It was clean and had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves while we were there. It was easy to find and close enough, but not too close, to everything you would want to do while in Atlanta. If we ever need to stay in the Atlanta area again I will stay here!!
My husband, son and I headed south to Atlanta for a little vacation before school started. We agree with all of the positive comments of other reviewers and LOVED our stay here! The apartment was even larger and better appointed than described. Our son couldn't believe that there was a pool to swim in AND a pool table -- wow! Everything was clean and ready for our stay and the owners could not have been nicer about answering our questions and helping us find our way around Atlanta. Since the apartment is less than 10 miles outside of the city, it was an easy drive to everything we wanted to go to -- Stone Mountain, Georgia Aquarium, CNN, Zoo Atlanta, The King Center, High Museum of Art and even Medieval Times. For eating out, we loved Ria's Bluebird (Grant Park), Cafe Lily (Decatur) and Six Feet Under ((Midtown West). In the spirit of full disclosure, we did experience a few technology glitches, but were very satisfied with the way they were handled by the owners. We can't wait to come back!
This really is an awesome rental. I walked in the door, and it's a nice kitchen. I look past the kitchen and it's a large living room, but to the left of that is a pool room. I turn left and it's a master bedroom. One of those really big master bedrooms that have a sitting area because they are so large. But then I turn right. There's a hallway leading to a fully enclosed hot tub and a steam shower and a sauna and a wet bar and a bathroom. It's a whole other private building attached right to the rental apartment. I'm still shocked by how big this rental really was. Quiet neighborhood. I saw lots of people walking in the morning and evenings. It's located inside the perimeter, so you probably won't get stuck in much traffic. It's close to I-85 and I-285, so it's easy to get around. I would definitely stay here again.
My wife and I stayed for five nights and enjoyed the peace and quiet of this property and its location. We just don't need or want a hotel parking garage, busy streets, elevators, concierge anymore. This apartment is in a very convenient location only a mile or so from a highway to everywhere, but the neighborhood is beautiful, safe, and quiet. The apartment itself is really big - more spacious than we had expected. Spa room has very romantic atmosphere, especially with night lighting. We really liked having a clicker to open the gate to our own private parking space, right by the door. Close to attractions. Would stay here again!
For our "spring break in the city," I knew this looked like a great spot for my daughters and me, but it was beyond great! The apartment is really spacious and nice! The owners obviously gave lots of thought to not only the accommodations and practical things but also to amenities for guests to have fun, too. Pool table, game table, books, TV, etc. Great location; easy to get to the well-known city sights that were about 15-20 minutes away. Loved having our privacy and our own parking space and quiet street. Owners were very nice and helpful with directions, etc. The spa room was incredible! The girls are still talking about going back to their "home in the city."
