About the property

1BR, 1BA, Futon sleeper in living room, Full kitchen, Minutes to downtown

A fully renovated apartment roosts above a 1902 home in the heart of the Historic Boulevard Neighborhood. This in-town apartment with beautiful garden on a 1/2 acre lot is the perfect home base for an Athens experience.

The apartment has private stairway entrance and fully equipped urban kitchen. Free curbside parking on spacious street. New, hard pine floors throughout. Cable TV and wireless internet also provided.

My family and I live below the apartment. We assume you'd like your privacy, but we are also very happy to help with advice and directions.

Some of the bounty that awaits you by easy walk or very short ride: Thousand Faces coffee and Jittery Joe's Roasters, White Tiger BBQ and Heirloom cafe, Normaltown (featuring Automatic Pizza, Agua Linda, Normal Bar, Hi-Lo, Old Pal, Ike and Jane's cafe, and Marti's at Midday) and Bottleworks on Prince (featuring SeaBear Oyster Bar, Taqueria Del Sol, Hendershot's Coffee & Bar, Siri Thai, and Viva Argentine Cuisine). And, of course, easy travel by foot or bus to downtown and Sanford Stadium.

In addition to the wonderful eateries, yoga studios, coffeehouses and nightlife, the apartment is surrounded by beautiful historic homes worthy of a stroll. Several parks and playgrounds are also nearby.

About Jason Taylor

Hi, I'm Jason. I moved to Athens in 2000 from the RTP, NC area and am amazed everyday by this city's charms. I teach ESOL at a local elementary school and my wife is a professor at UGA. Although our home is below the apartment, we will not bother you unless you ask us to. When we are not traveling, we like to garden, play games, exercise, and enjoy the treasures of Athens.

Jason Taylor purchased this apartment in 2016

Why Jason Taylor chose Athens

After living in Athens for 17 years and spending some time abroad, I knew the Boulevard area was the best place to live in Athens. It's historic homes and sidewalks make it a lovely, friendly place to be. It's proximity to downtown and Prince Avenue grant easy access to eateries, venues, and shops.

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

We could not be more pleased with our stay at Cardinal’s Roost! Jason was more than hospitable, going above and beyond our highest expectations. Our space was comfy, clean, and well appointed. Jason’s reccomedations of local dining establishments was spot on. The next time we are in Athens, we truly hope we can repeat our stay. Thank you!

Great little apartment

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Jason, your place was the perfect spot for my husband and me for our first visit to Athens. Very helpful and easy instructions. Lovely neighborhood, walking distance to downtown shops and restaurants. We also found a fantastic yoga studio right around the corner--myoga.

At first I was concerned with being above the owner and that quickly melted away. We were greeted by fresh flowers, the beverage of our choice, umbrellas in case it rained, suggestions for dining and everything else and Jason himself. Seriously, customer service means EVERYTHING to me and he nailed it!! We really enjoyed ourselves! I almost stole the pillow because it was so wonderful! Thanks Jason!
