You can leave them outside the porch or in the hallway. We also have green chest you can use to store them as well.

PETS

Always inform us before bringing a pet in the house. Use socks to protection

SURFACES to CARE FOR

We have Carrara Marble countertops in the kitchen and bathrooms. Although absolutely beautiful they are very delicate and easy to stain or scratch therefore need a lot of attention and care. Especially coffee, wine, oil, makeup, become impossibile to remove, therefore always use mats on them and cutting boards.

The Island countertop and the dining table are also pretty delicate and they are sensitive to heat. Always use coasters, place mats and heat mats witch can be found in the island drawers. Also always use cutting boards and use protection on surfaces whether you are cooking, writing and so on.

While dishes, utensils and other kitchen amenities are at your disposal, please wash your dishes in the dishwasher or by hand.

Use place mats and coasters to help protect the tables, counters and other surfaces.

KITCHEN

Trash

Trash is underneath the sink. Recycle is in the silver bin inside the pantry.

Please dump the trash in the outside green container before you leave! DO NOT leave dirty dishes behind , as the cleaning team will charge extra for it and it will be taken from your deposit. so please DO YOUR OWN DISHES.

Dishwasher

Dishwasher is easy to set up. clean up your plates from from food and rinse them up before placing them in the dishwasher.Then fill the soap box with powder soap. then Just power it on and select cycle .

Ceramic pots/pants are not dishwasher safe and need to be hand washed.

You will find dishwasher soap underneath the sink.

Fridge

The fridge is very spacious and should supply all of your needs. We try not to keep to much of our stuff around, so you will most likely find it semi-empty. REMEMBER TO BRING THE LEFTOVERS WITH YOU AT THE END OF YOUR STAY AN LEAVE THE FRIDGE AS CLEAN AS YOU FOUND IT. In case you need there are two more small wine coolers , one in from of the pantry and one underneath the island!

Oven

Always use the lid with pots and pans, the vent is not the most powerful and get heated pretty fast.

NEVER use silverware with ceramic cookware or it will get damaged.Only use wooden or plastic utensils with them.

Pantry

We cleaned up a side of our high pantry , you should have plenty of space to storage all you might need. Remember not to leave behind fruit or food that could attract ants or fruit flies .

GRILL

Feel free to use the grill, but please be mindful of security measures.

Don’t move the grill and remember to turn the gas off! ;)

Clean the grill after you use it!

BEDROOMS

There are 2 master bedrooms with king bed and bathroom en suite upstairs. Two queen bedrooms downstairs plus a “meditation room/guest bedroom that has a pull on queen sofa bed.

In case you might need we are leaving also an airbed.

BATHROOMS

There is extra Toilet papers underneath the sinks.

DO NOT flush anything but toiler paper. For everything else please use the trash bin.

If you are doing your makeup please use the trays as makeup may stain the marble :)

LAUNDRY ROOM

Washer and Dryer are located upstairs in the laundry room and they are pretty intuitive to use.

There you can also find an iron in case you might need it.

WIFI

Wifi Network : WhisperConnection 2.4

WhisperConnection5

Password: robertathecat

the 2.4 has a wider range so we suggest to use that for use around the house. 5 is a stronger one, but is limited in the area closer to the modem :)

If in any case you need to reset the router you can just unplug it, give it 30 second and plug it back in.

AIR CONDITIONING

Air condition is central air. We have two different units, the downstairs unit control is located on the wall outside the small bedroom hall. The Upstairs unit control is on the wall on the left side inside the Master bedroom1. . If you need to change temperature you can rotate right or left to select temperature.

INTERACTION WITH GUESTS

This is our personal home that we live in. During your stay we will be staying in the backyard studio unless traveling so I will be mostly there if you need anything :) While I will not always be on the premises during your stay, I am available via phone or text to answer any questions and to help make your stay as pleasant as possible.

GETTING AROUND

Use the driveway for parking. I would recommend to take Uber anywhere in the city, especially if you don't want to deal with parking, etc. Most uber rides are less than $10.00 if traveling downtown, midtown, etc. An uber ride from/to the airport (ATL) is around $15.00 - $20.00. If you don't have either app, I can send you an invitation to sign up and you'll get free rides on both Lyft and Uber!

Modern and Clean

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the weekend at this house for a quick Atlanta trip. It was a very new and clean home. The beds were all comfortable and everything we needed was found in the kitchen. The owner stays on the property in another building in the backyard, but left us alone so it wasn't weird. We enjoyed hanging out on the screen porch each night.

Very good

  • 4 of 5

Great experience.

Apparently, the maintenance of the oven was missed. Using the oven created fume which activated alarm.

Gorgeous property, while super spacious!

  • 5 of 5

Great couple and super polite! They were great at communicating and offered my family a house tour. Even after not clearly reading her policy, I had a graduation celebration/dinner at the house & Roberta was still polite and respectful, which she didn’t have to be since I clearly didn’t read the rule correctly! But that’s even more why I would recommend this place to anyone! They are definitely professional, polite, and experienced with renting out their property! I would recommend this place to any and everyone!!

The House is amazing!

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect and centrally located for most everything we did while in Atlanta. The owners stayed in the carriage house behind the main home, so were available. There were some minor inconveniences, listed below:

No TV instructions - None of us had ever used an Apple TV, so an instruction sheet would've been very helpful, especially with March Madness happening while we were there!

No instructions for the home beyond taking shoes off - In every VRBO I've ever stayed, there's been a little instruction sheet or book that includes check out procedures, door codes, what to use and what not to use, owner contact info. This is always very helpful and allows you to not bother the owners for minor issues.

These are minor issues but would make guests feel more welcome and help to take care of the home as appropriate. Overall, our stay was excellent.
