Welcome to the downtown gem! I live with my cat Noodles. My place is close to restaurants and bars! I am less than five miles from East Atlanta, Zoo Atlanta, Little Five Points, Georgia Dome, Turner Field, and GSU. I am a blink's eye from I-20, I-75, and I-85. I am only about ten minutes from the airport! You are welcome to tea and coffee in the mornings if you would like. I provide you with a "welcome basket" and you will also have access to my "Guest Guide" of attractions in the area.

The space

There is one bedroom, one bathroom, laundry room, dining room, living room, and kitchen. I spend the majority of my time working but when I am home, I love to cook and work on DIY projects (which you will find all throughout the space). I also have a cute balcony that I enjoy sitting out on throughout the day. My cat is very gentle and she may ask you politely for a rub or two ;-) You will be provided with a key for entry during your stay. In order to keep costs down-the thermostat usually stays on 65-67. Although the listed space is actually my living room, you will have as much privacy as possible as the bedroom and bathroom are at the rear. The space will also be gated off from the cat so she does not disturb you! Enjoy yourself in the ATL!

Guest access

Guests will have access to the living room area, shared bathroom, kitchen (microwave and designated area in the refrigerator to store your food items) only, and the balcony if you would like (please no smoking). Within the living room area, guests will have the option to sleep on the queen-sized air mattress or the comfortable couch with comfy sheets and pillows. The couch is not a pull-out (sorry...) Guests will be greeted with an array of natural light beaming from the windows as well as a "welcome" basket and a "guest guide" for all of the different attractions throughout the Atlanta area! The room is also equipped with a flat-screen television and DVD player but I do not have cable. However, you will have access to Netflix to stream movies live on your phone/tablet/laptop. I also have a great deal of dvds if your prefer. The hall closet has plenty of room to hang your things as well as a hamper and luggage rack. You will also have access to towels for your visit as well as toiletries (to be used as needed) throughout your stay! The bathroom has a renovated vanity, space to store your belongings, toilet, and tub (for showers or baths). Tea and coffee will be offered/provided each morning through use of the Keurig in the kitchen.

Interaction with guests

I would love to take the opportunity to welcome you into my home and show you around. Sometimes I am very busy and that may require you to come right in and make yourself at home. However, I am always available via text/phone/email for questions and/or concerns. I am happy to leave you alone or chat with you and provide tips about traveling in the ATL. It depends on your preference and I will respect your wishes!

Other things to note

I live in a quiet area and sometimes you will hear people walking up and down the stairs. The parking lot is well lit at night. I usually jog in the wee hours of the morning and I attest to the great workout you could have either walking or jogging the area.

Lakisha was an absolutely wonderful host! Not only did she offer a lovely welcome basket upon arrival, she also respected and gave me as much privacy as I needed, which made the entire experience feel like I was at a hotel. I am in love with her cat Noodles, who snuggled with me in bed both nights before I fell asleep (though if this is not your preference, I am sure that Lakisha will make sure your wishes are met). I absolutely loved staying at her place and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Place was good. The getting into the building would've been hard without a phone though. It is what it is

Response from Lakisha:
I am sorry that your stay was not 5-star. You do not need a phone to access my apartment complex because you are using the "call system" to call my cell phone in order to gain access to the building. I am not sure of the reasoning for only rating your stay with four stays solely based on that....hmmmm...Have an awesome day :-)

YES! - Lakisha is a very welcoming host, and the place was very clean. She is very accommodating as to your arrival, she in fact went out of her way to help let me in the complex at an earlier time. She sets up everything nicely including a welcome to Atlanta basket. She has a friendly cat. She gives you as much privacy as needed. It is a great price that is hard to beat. Potential deterrents - - as expected, air mattresses are not the most comfortable thing in the world - If you have bad allergies it is probably not the place for you, there is a friendly cat(which she made known prior), and the place has the very faint smell of tobacco smoke combined with air freshener. - While I didn't have any issue in regard to the area, I was told by multiple locals who work nearby that it isn't the safest area. BUT again, I had no issues.

Response from Lakisha:
Hello Chris, My apologies that your visit was not 5-star....I am not sure how a potential deterrent would be the air mattress provided to guests because it is clearly stated in the listing that the accommodations are for an air mattress. I was always around for any questions and or concerns that you may have had throughout your stay and I would have been more than happy to adjust the air pressure of the mattress to make it more comfortable. I always stress to each and every guest that I am there for all of his/her questions and/or concerns to make their stay the best possible. In addition, as with the air freshener, guests are permitted to turn it off at their disposable and I did not smell the faint smell of tobacco smoke but I would have definitely opened a window if you made me aware of your concern. In addition, there is a small pet gate, as mentioned in the listing, that guests can use if you do not want the cat in the living room, and I would be more than happy to provide that for you. I am not sure what locals you spoke with, but there have never been incidents of crime in my apartment complex or on Memorial Street for that matter. I love my neighborhood and it is one of the safest in the city of Atlanta...Once again, I am very sorry that your stay was not five-star but it seems as though most of your "deterrents" would have been easily remedied by simply sharing your concerns and allowing me to assist you and make your stay as comfortable as possible. Have an awesome day :-)

Lakisha is just a perfect host. I really felt home in her beatiful appartment. If you're good at foot you can easily walk downtown.

Lakisha was absolutely amazing. She really helped me with the arrival. She is very warm and kind person and her cat is lovely. If I had more time in Atlanta I would definitely stay longer.

I am originally from New York. I love living ITP (In the Perimeter) as fellow Georgians call it! I enjoy going to concerts, festivals, lounges, art shows, plays, meeting new people, traveling outside the US, and anything else Atlanta has to offer-thats what happens when you live 10-15 minutes from everything that is everything here.
