This charming, historic bungalow is located in the up and coming neighborhood of Sylvan Hills/Capitol View, very close to Marta (Oakland City Station, 3 stops south of downtown). Driving? We are just 15 minutes north of the airport and 5 minutes south of downtown. Also super convenient to I-75/I-85 and I-20.
Relax and recharge in this well appointed spa-like private room with a super comfortable queen sized bed dressed in quality cotton linens, spa robe & slippers. Guests enjoy the convenience of a having their very own vanity pedestal sink in each of the private bedrooms (while the main bathrooms are shared) and the combination of high ceilings, spacious airy rooms, original architectural details, clean modern designs mixed with antiques, hand crafted items, natural elements and hardwood floors.
Free parking, wifi, and laundry (by appointment only) available to guests.
I am easy going, really enjoy hosting and just want every guest to have the best experience possible. There are 3 large, sweet, clean and extremely cute and friendly dogs and charming young lady named Dani that help me co-host.
When booking a Queen room, you may be getting one of the 4 private rooms in the house. All have the same basic amenities and decor.
Free WIFI, backyard with horseshoes, grill, hammock, veggie and herb garden, dogs for walking and nice kitchen. Free street parking all the time.

Easy going and creative....enjoy cooking, entertaining, local, organic food, yoga, good wine, all things vintage, history, architectural preservation, lots of good music, art, film, animals, nature, sailing, the ocean, traveling, calm and tranquil spaces, and try to find beauty in all things. Love to have fun and not take life too seriously. Enjoy hosting and meeting new friends from all cultures and backgrounds and don't really follow the mainstream of American culture at all. Love to buy houses and fix them up. Have quite a few places where we host guests and try to be as accommodating as possible. When staying in a private room, you will be in a room in one of our houses, most likely, there will be a couple of canine co-hosts in the house as well, so loving dogs is a must! Our properties are in lower income, inner city neighborhoods where real, local ATLiens live. You won't see many tourists around, mostly, just typical working class folks who love to sit on the front porch and unwind as part of Southern culture. We always say hello to each other in passing, so please be friendly and observe our friendly custom when encountering locals, they will appreciate the gesture. Locals typically enjoy meeting and helping out-of-towners. Because we are in a lower income, less traveled neighborhood, we can offer stylish, affordable accommodations to travelers on a budget. Also, for travelers relying on public transportation, we are on the Marta line conveniently situated halfway between the Airport and downtown. The rates are very reasonable and not subject to negotiation. Rates, terms, and policies are fixed and applied equally to all guests. We look forward to hosting you one day soon.
