Overview

About the property

1 bdrm, 2 ba private retreat with unique spa room, hot tub, sauna, steam shower

A click of your personal remote device will open the private driveway gate to your own parking space and entrance to your terrace level apartment in a beautiful, close-in Atlanta neighborhood - just 15 minutes from Midtown, Emory, CDC, Georgia Tech, downtown historic and contemporary sites. Shopping, golf courses, Stone Mountain Park, and all the professional and college sports events and concerts imaginable are nearby!

When 'at home,' though, enjoy the quiet, private comfort and amenities of a large terrace level apartment that includes spacious rooms, fireplace, granite kitchen, a pool table, game table, and large flat screen TV. Cable, Netflix, and free Wi-Fi.

One large bedroom has a California king size bed. Two additional beds are available for children or adults and can be placed wherever you like.

You'll REALLY feel special when you open the leaded glass doors to a separate, private wing, revealing an exotic spa room with an elevated hot tub, sauna, steam shower, lounge area, wet bar, and bathroom. In the evening, dim the lights in the dome ceiling of the spa room to create the mood for fun and relaxation.

Enjoy the same apartment that was occupied for four months in 2014 by an actor who was in Atlanta to star in a television series being filmed here!

The terrace level apartment is in a large, beautiful family home in a safe, quiet neighborhood. Interstate I-85, which is a two-minute drive away, leads right into Midtown and Downtown.

About Sylvia Davidson

My husband and I are longtime Atlanta residents and are active in the community. So, we feel comfortable with making suggestions about things to do in the Atlanta area. We'd be happy to give directions to major tourist sites or to funky neighborhoods and restaurants. We've used VRBO many times over the last 15 years throughout Europe and USA and always enjoy having our own 'home' and getting to know neighborhoods in other places. That experience led us to offer our own unique private retreat as a 'home away from home' for other travelers!

Sylvia Davidson purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Sylvia Davidson chose Atlanta

First of all, Atlanta has been our home for most of our lives. It's a beautiful city, forested with an incredible variety of trees, shrubs, and flowers. First-time visitors to our city are amazed at how green it is - even inside the city limits! The property is practically surrounded with densely wooded areas, adding to the quiet, private feeling. However, it's close-in (inside the perimeter) and only 15 minutes from midtown, Buckhead, and downtown!

What makes this apartment unique

The location of the property certainly appealed to us from the first time we saw it. What really wowed us, though, was the spa wing of the house. The WOW factor, for sure!

Terrific!

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my wife, 5yo, & 7month old stayed here for a week around the new year. We had a great experience! The property is as advertised, and close to everything. Very cozy, with all the comforts of home. Not sure why you would stay in a regular hotel room with a property like this to enjoy. Owners were very nice, and accommodating. We will be back!

Atlanta Trip

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I haven't been to Atlanta in years and wanted to visit for the weekend. At the same time, we did not want to stay in the downtown area due to traffic, parking, etc., but rather within a 15-minute drive of this area. Found this location and loved the experience. The owner of the residence was extremely gracious and accommodating. She provided a lot of information about the area and made you feel extremely comfortable. The space was extremely clean and spacious. The hot tub area - with sauna - was fantastic! Would highly recommend. Thank you for a great trip.

Absolutely love the house and the hosts are the best

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay with Sylvia, we were here in June for over 3 weeks and Sylvia and Wendell were the best hosts ever. The apartment is absolutely gorgeous in June I brought my husband, daughter and mother with me, and loved the apartment and all the amenities, it was summer so we used the pool, hot tub and had a great time and it was an excellent base for exploring Atlanta. We loved it that much then when I returned with my son for 2 weeks in Atlanta I instantly rebooked the apartment with Sylvia and it didn't disappoint again. They were so helpful with anything we needed even loaning us a cooler so we could tailgate at the Falcon games. I will stay here every time I'm in Atlanta. I recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to stay in Atlanta. Sylvia and Wendell have now become friends are the nicest people you could meet, love to you both

I give both the apartment and the hosts 5 stars plus you will not be disappointed staying here

Relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here the week of Thanksgiving. We were in Atlanta to see our 2 sons who attend GT. The rental was everything you could ask for - clean, spacious, comfortable, well stocked kitchen and baths, and the awesome spa wing. We used the hot tub and saunas daily during our visit. The rental was large enough to handle our Thanksgiving dinner, as well as watching the football games on TV, and then playing pool and board games later in the evening. It was truly a relaxing getaway! The owners are extremely helpful and thoughtful. They provide all the necessities in their rental as well as local information on restaurants and shopping. We are planning to use this again when we visit Atlanta. It is superior to a hotel stay in every way imaginable. We would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Atlanta as you are only about 15 min from downtown.

ATLANTA!! Loaded with historical, cultural richness! College and pro sports, world-class symphony, art museums, fabulous shopping, theme parks. Well-known tourist sights like the Coca-Cola Museum, Georgia Aquarium, Stone Mountain Park, corporate headquarters, beautiful neighborhoods, golf courses, etc.

Stay in a neighborhood, not in a sterile hotel that looks like all others. This is a quiet area of upscale homes and families; very safe, secure parking in your own space, right next to your door. You'll have your own remote control for the electronic gate in your own driveway. And, I-85, the highway to anywhere you want to go, is only four minutes away! Shopping and restaurants within a mile or two. Only 15 minutes from midtown, Buckhead.

A home away from home. Come and enjoy what others have discovered (see reviews)!
