About Sarah K Smith

I was born here, went to college here, started a thriving business here, and found true love here. But I’ve been to many other cities and countries and believe, wholeheartedly, that I live in the best city in the world. (For me.) (And maybe for you – at least for a memorable visit.)

There’s just so much to do whether you love culture – museums, galleries, theater, music, nightclubs – or are drawn to more outdoor activities like hiking, biking, strolling through historic districts and/or checking out all the modern marvels. And it’s family friendly as well – zoos, children’s museums, and the Georgia Aquarium.

Sarah K Smith purchased this studio in 2004

Why Sarah K Smith chose Buckhead

The house is situated in the southern-most part of Buckhead, one of the most expensive zip codes in Atlanta; but, because it is practically in Midtown, the area’s nicknamed “Bucktown.” In addition to having the convenience of a two-car garage, the backyard is cute, and the front porch affords great privacy.

Decent space, but lack of communication from owner

  • 3 of 5

The space was everything I needed during my stay, it didn’t have any bad odors, was in a good, safe location and was nicely decorated. The areas that lacked, were cleanliness and communication from the owner.

When I arrived it looked lovely at first glance! However, the sheets on the bed were not clean and had a big hole in it, the pillows were very stained, the pans and other utensils were covered with old sticky food, kitchen items were haphazardly tossed inside cabinets, there was hair all over the bathroom and towels, and in plain sight under the edge of the couch were old dust covered potato chips. The refrigerator also leaked water which got on my food and sometimes poured on the floor if you opened the bottom draw. The stove is ancient, but was clean and worked fine.

The biggest issue I had was lack of communication from the owner. I was given the wrong keys when I moved in (door was unlocked so I didn’t know right away) and I had a family emergency that I needed to leave for. When she did finally reply, I was already out of state. The right keys were left on the door the whole week I was gone; if she fully read my message she should’ve waited till I was coming back to leave them, for my piece of mind regarding the safety of my unattended belongings. Several times I was unable to pull in or out of the driveway because work was being done, but was given no notice this was taking place. She also let herself into the apartment with no notice when I wasn’t home. One morning I was awoken to men outside my windows (they were painters), again with no notification they would be there for 4 days! After they were there a few days, I did get a text at 1:30am that they would need to have my door opened for a few hours to paint it early that same morning. Gee thanks for the warning! I said no to them coming with such short notice when I’d be sleeping, and then days later they must’ve been there because it was painted but I was not given notice of what day they’d be there. I came home one day to have a couch in my parking spot. Text messages to the owner about it went unanswered and the couch remained there for over a month and was still there when I moved out.

The space itself is great, the issues I had may not happen to others, especially if only staying a short time, and those issues I had can be worked on by the owner so future stays will hopefully be better.

We want to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this adorable bungalow for a full month this summer. I enjoyed exploring Atlanta with my kids and husband. The location is very central. I found that having a garage and back yard was nice (when the weather wasn't too hot).

We're hoping to come back next summer. We have family in the area so it is very convenient to Piedmont Hospital and Buckhead. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Just Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay if safety, privacy, and the perfect location are important to you! My visit lasted six weeks and I wouldn't have changed a thing. Sara Kathryn is truly a Southern lady and a great host!

Love the Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

We have a relative in the hospital here in Atlanta and found this "carriage house" as we knew we would have a prolonged stay. It is in a great location and really cute and comfortable. We love having this "home away from home". The owner is most accommodating and helpful with suggestions for restaurants, etc. We love being here!

Didn't Want to Leave

  • 5 of 5

We rented this carriage house for the summer of 2013 for our college son who was interning in Atlanta. All we needed was something furnished & ready (and safe) and we got that in spades. Not only was it really nice, it had a garage for his car, a little shed for his moped, and as a special bonus, the neighborhood was beautiful. It couldn't have worked out better. It was a bit of a commute to his work but well worth it. Smooth getting on & off the freeway from there. Sarah Kathryn was a very good landlady, most accommodating. No problems at all except a minor leak once under the sink, which she sent someone to fix right away. When our son's internship ended, he was ready to get back to school but he wasn't ready to leave his carriage house. He said, "Honestly, I could live here forever."

Car: recommended

The Carriage House is located in the southern most part of Buckhead. (Northside Drive & Collier Road) It is very convenient to Midtown and downtown. Piedmont Hospital is in walking distance. There is a Publix shopping center and Fellini's Pizza only 2 blocks away. Lenox Mall is about 10-15 minutes north of the house. This property is mostly rented out on a monthly basis to many actors/directors/producers that are in town to film movies.
