What a peaceful and beautiful paradise. The home was very clean, easy to get to from the airport. All of the facilities worked very well and this cute home was fixed with all the amenities you could want. Perfect for family travel, weddings, and even shooting for motion picture and television.

The trip to Atlanta was to attend the Microsoft Ignite conference at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Three of us decided we would rather stay in a house, than a hotel and the house is everything as described by our hosts and it felt like home. This was my first experience of Airbnb and if all the descriptions and properties are as good as the one we stayed at here – I will be using Airbnb again. Just remember to register with Uber or bring a car. Thank you to our hosts.

New to hosting on AIRBNB

Come try us out!

We have been airbnb members/ users since 2014, using it as guest. We have been hosted by some of the most amazing people and recently decided we would love to share our home with you. We are a fun loving couple, who loves people and will socialize with anyone.


I am from the "big easy" (New Orleans, LA) but was raised in New York. I am a oncology registered nurse and I'm extremely passionate about helping others. I love working out, and watching and participating in all sports. I am well traveled and have visited various countries with many more in my radar. My guilty pleasures: watching reality shows and gardening! :)


I am originally from Jamaica, but grew up in Connecticut. I am a army veteran I served in Afghanistan in 2010. I migrated to Atlanta in 2014. I love to travel and I am a wannabe chef. I am currently a construction project manager. I like to work out, run, hike, outdoor activities and entertaining guest. My wife calls me a nerd because I am filled with useless knowledge. I say I am a renaissance man!
