Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath With Full Kitchen, Living Room, Breakfast Area, And Back Patio

High Point Condo is a 2BR/2BA condo in Athens, GA just 3.1 miles from UGA Football Parking, 5.0 Miles from Downtown Athens.

Sleeps 6-8 people comfortably.

The Entire 2nd floor is a Master Suite with a King Bed, the Love Seat in the sitting area pulls out to a twin bed. Private bathroom, with a walk-in closet, and TV mounted on the wall swivels to the sleeping area and sitting area.

Main level has the 2nd BR, which has 2 Double Beds, direct access to BA, and plenty of mirrored closet space.

Living Room is where you enter through the front door and has a 42inch flatscreen TV with Charter cable and a wii entertainment system. L-shaped sofa and chair with ottoman serve up plenty of seating room to watch the games. There is also a closet that stores everything you need to set up the Twin size air-mattress.

Kitchen is stocked with everything you need to cook a large family meal on the ceramic top stove, or just choose from one of the bottles of wine chilling in the fridge. Dining room seating is right off the kitchen, as is the full size Washer and Dryer for those longer stays.

The back door opens up to the patio for great night seating and is just steps away from your 2 Reserved Parking Spaces(with 2 more shared guest spaces right next to your reserved spaces).

My wife and I are frequent renters from VRBO, and have booked houses and condos all over the world. I find that when I am booking a place, it's not about how many people it can sleep, it's about how many people sleep comfortably there! When we set up the condo for guests, that was the first thing in mind; plenty of beds, air mattress, pull-out sofa, big wide sofa, etc. This is perfect for 6-7 guys that do not want to sleep together, large families, a couple of couples, etc.

All of this for the price of a single Hotel Room, you get 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Living Room, Full Kitchen, Washer and Dryer, Reserved Parking for 2+ Cars, and More!

About Michael Gibbs

I am a UGA graduate that grew up about 45 minutes away and moved to Athens in 1996 for college, graduated in 2001, and found a great job in Athens so I didn't have to leave. I bought this condo brand new a few years later, lived there until I found another great house right down the road, and have been renting my condo out to great guests ever since!

Michael Gibbs purchased this condo in 2005

Why Michael Gibbs chose Green Acres

I found this condo after renting in Athens for years. It was brand new when I bought it and was the perfect size for me and my friends. I love the Eastside of Athens and still live on this side of town now. Eastside has everything you need, close to UGA, DT, but everything you need in a 2 mile radius(restaurants, shopping, groceries, gyms, etc). Plus it right by the airport and a cheap cab ride home from DT if you had too much fun.

What makes this condo unique

Over the years I have rented many houses and condos for everything from guys trips to family vacations to just my wife and I. The most important thing when I rent, is how many beds does it have? Not just how many does it sleep, how many separate places to sleep does it have, so that's why we included little things like the pull-out Love seat, 2 Double Beds Downstairs, Air mattress, and huge sofa. Whether you are traveling with the guys, a family of 4, or a few couples the sleeping arrangements are comfortable for everyone!

I will say that the house does look a little different now than when I lived there as a bachelor. I gave my wife the checkbook and free reign over the design and decoration, and as you can see, she gave it all the touches to turn my bachelor pad into a stylish modern condo that has beds for everyone.

nice condo, very clean, but you do need a car or other transportation to eating or shopping

  • 4 of 5

The condo was great - just as described. The only complaint is that it is advertised as needing no car, but you absolutely must either have a car or use Uber or some other transportation company. Uber is a car ,even though it is pay per ride, it is available most everywhere, so I wouldn't say no car is needed because it definitely is needed if you want to eat, go to the game, or even walk around. That fact should be clear to renters, and saying no car needed is false advertising. I assumed that even though it is three or so miles from downtown, you could walk to restaurants or shopping near the condo and you cannot. Change that, and I'd give this a ten!

Cookies and freah flowers were a big hit. The place really did have everything we needed: soap and shampoo, blow dryer, iron and ironing board.

I loved it!❤️

  • 4 of 5

The house was wonderful! We had an amazing time and it was very clean. The owner was extremely accommodating and there were even fresh baked cookies upon arrival that were delicious. I also loved the privacy of the 2nd floor master suite.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

This was a great property with all the comforts of home. It was great to have a host that was intimately familiar with the area. You can see the love Michael has for Athens and it was a great place to be. We were quite comfortable with 5 adults, 3 kids and 1 toddler.

Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

If heading to Athens, you will not find a better location or price! The decor is charming and the owners provided numerous small but necessary amentities ( not the only traveler to ever forget cottonballs, qtips, etc.) that were an added bonus! I know my way around a kitchen so I was pleased the spice rack contained a selection way beyond salt & pepper and the mattress proved to be very comfortable. And, lastly, finding a tray of cookies and fresh flowers was certainly a classy welcome....................thank you, Micheal & your lovely bride!
