One of 2 apartments that roost above a 1902 home in the heart of the historic Boulevard neighborhood.

One bedroom with queen size bed and TV/living room with futon that folds down to fit 2 adults. Full, urban kitchen opens to the living room. Cable TV and Wifi provided. Free curbside parking on wide street. Private, covered stairwell entrance.

Sidewalks line the neighborhood creating an easy walk to Downtown, Bottleworks on Prince Avenue, Normaltown, and Sanford Stadium.

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.

Why Jason Taylor chose Clarke County

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.

                                          This was a great location and had everything needed for a perch while passing through on business.

                                          Lovely location in Athens

                                          charla h.

                                          This apartment is in a convenient location in a beautiful historic neighborhood. We found everything very clean and comfortable, with plenty of space to spreadout. The owner provided all the essentials and a few snacks. We would certainly stay here again.


                                          Mary N.

                                          Jason was incredibly accommodating.

                                          Cozy, clean, charming. Would definitely return!

                                          Margaret G.

                                          Creature comforts: The apartment was immaculate. Good quality bedding and towels; several pillows with different degrees of firmness. The mattress in the bedroom was perfect for my less-than-perfect back. Quiet heating/air unit for great climate control. Tissues/toilet paper/paper towels were soft and high quality - no dollar store thin stuff. Quiet at night. Basic kitchen utensils, coffee, sugar, fresh 1/2 and 1/2. Spacious closet and drawer storage. With a futon and a foldout couch in the living room this was great for my two teenagers and me. As there's no door between l.r. and bedroom I wouldn't suggest this apt for two couples, but one couple and some kids would be comfortable. Full bar of soap & shampoo provided.

                                          Host: Jason was very friendly and altogether professional. Communication was always easy and prompt. He met us with a smile as we drove up, and took time to show us the amenities; he even set up the futon for us. He's a family man and it shows. He asked what snacks we would like and provided fresh fruit as I'd requested.

                                          Location: Lovely, safe street with beautiful early 1900's houses. Easy parking. 5 min drive to downtown; 5 minute walk to Heirloom Cafe - this was a bit pricey but the food was great and all staff were warm and welcoming.

                                          Appearance: So so cozy! Surprising, quirky paint colors; furniture from nearly every decade of the 1900's. We felt at home immediately.

                                          Overall this was a fantastic place to stay. The "instruction manual" in the apt says Jason and his family are new at renting their home - I've stayed in many VRBO properties in the States, England and France and I think they are doing this like pros.

                                          Simple, comfortable family stay in historic neighborhood

                                          Shannon K.

                                          This neighborhood is the perfect location in Athens for a quiet stay within charming walking distance to great restaurants, a book store, coffee shop, co-op grocery and more. The architecture and the different quirks of residents in the historic district in and around Boulevard captivated our attention as we walked leisurely to breakfast at Big City Bread. The hosts share great tips about the neighborhood and restaurants, even the streets that are most charming- though any meandering proves to be so! They have this apartment set up efficiently with just the right amount of comfort. The stove is gas, so it’s fun to cook on. They had Creature Comfort beer waiting on us!, nice teas and coffee ready to brew, a kettle, and let us feel free to enjoy it on the porch. Jason and family were so kind and considerate of us being guests. Even though they live there, we felt they were giving us the space we needed and the apartment is set aside and upstairs in a way that is totally separate and not invasive. Plenty of parking on the wide street. Plenty of pillows, towels, etc. We had beds enough for 3 kids and 2 parents. We highly recommend this easy and inexpensively charming way to get to know Athens!
