    Clean, comfortable, well equipped

    Ginny’s place had everything we needed for our stay. It was very clean and there was plenty of wash cloths, towels and all of the kitchen utensils we needed. It was a bit more than waking distance to the UGA campus, but that wasn’t a big deal because we had a car and also were able to use Uber very easily. I loved the screened in porch for my morning coffee and just having a home to relax and unwind in without having to worry about disturbing sleeping teenagers.

    Second time I have stayed at the house and it was great. Well designed house that would be ideal for a game day group or a family that needs to stay together for a visit. Or an individual wanting a long term stay. Furniture, appliances, utensils are excellent. Rooms and bathrooms are spacious and cared for. Be ready for a great stay!

    Lovely home that was conveniently located to everything in the Athens area. There was an ample amount of space for all of the guests. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we possibly could need. The family room was a great entertaining space to watch the Georgia game. Overall, it was a great stay and many memories were made thanks to Jerry and Farol's amazing home. We will definitely stay here again next time we return to Athens

    Very well maintained property with a owner that wants to make sure your stay goes well. Lots of space and the kitchen has every thing you would need to have a great stay. A/C heating was great. Bedroom and bathrooms have very good space and great beds. We stayed for about seven weeks and would schedule the property again.

    This house was perfect for our stay on a game day weekend in Athens. The property manager communicated well and had taken care of every detail at the house. This place far exceeded expectations.

    Quickly booked another stay at this property after our initial visit and we hope to be back again. Has everything you need for a fun and comfortable stay in Athens and the owner is very thoughtful and responsive. Looking forward to another visit soon. I would not hesitate to highly recommend this property.

    Ginny's Place has lots of sleeping capacity and lots of living space, so you dont feel cramped! The owner provides a full kitchen with all the everyday things that you might not have thought of ... plastic baggies, foil, non-stick spray, etc. The accommodations are beautiful & comfortable, in a nice neighborhood. This is my choice, if I'm ever back in Athens, GA.

    Couldn't be happier with our stay. The location is great and centrally located to everything Athens has to offer. The house is very comfortable and everything you could ask for has already been considered and provided by the owners (who go above and beyond to make you feel welcome). Not only would we recommend staying here, we already booked a repeat stay due to our happiness with the property. Can't wait for our next visit.

    Jerry's property was immaculately clean and comfortable. Anything we could possibly need was provided--it was clear a lot of thought has gone into what is needed to make for an easy stay! The location is also convenient to the farmer's market, downtown, and other Athens attractions. Will definitely stay here again when we visit!

    Wonderful UGA graduation memories!

    My wife's and my daughter graduated from the University of Georgia in May 2019. Being from St. Louis, and having a handful of family members wanting to attend, we needed to find a nice home to stay in that a) would be affordable to us and b) just a few minutes from the UGA campus. Ginny's Place turned out to be a diamond in the rough for us. The home is lovely, completely set-up for a family gathering, and Mr. and Mrs. NeSmith could not have been better hosts. We had everything we needed, and all went precisely to plan. Three beautifully decorated bedrooms, two full bathrooms, wi-fi throughout, and a well-appointed kitchen allowed us to fully relax and live in the moment. Just what every parent wants to do with their child and family on such a special, milestone day. If you need a lovely home in Athens, GA for a short or long-term stay, we highly recommend HomeAway, the NeSmith's, and their beautiful Athens home. – Michael T., St. Louis

    Great location, everything we needed was in the house, clean and comfortable.

    Beautiful home. Comfortable and conveniently located. The well equipped kitchen was the best as we made Christmas cookies and a complete holiday feast. The separate dining table was room enough for our formal dinner and our late night card games. It was the perfect place for our family to gather Thank you to Jerry and Farol for being so accommodating. We hope we have the opportunity to return again.

    Clean and decorated for Christmas!

    This place was a newer home with all the amenities! We were planning a larger crowd but due to illness had to size down at the last minute. The owners were extremely helpful. Our overall all experience was 5 stars! We were extremely impressed with the accommodations, fluffy towels, fully equipped kitchen! They even had coffee beans to grind! Anyone giving this place a consideration, you’ll be very happy you chose this one. Everything is very close, shops, restaurants and the university.
