Mary Ellen purchased this condo in 2009

Why Mary Ellen chose Athens

We purchased the condo for our UGA student who enjoyed living here for 5 years. It is super quiet, safe and close to it all. We decided to renovate and make it a great place for family, friends and guests to come and enjoy a visit to Athens, see their UGA student, tour the campus, attend sporting events/concerts. It is a great place for a DAWG visit!!

What makes this condo unique

All the comforts of home!! Super Clean, quiet, cozy and well equipped. Many return guests!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Outstanding Condo; Outstanding Owner

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights in Athens, GA to attend our niece's wedding. We cannot say enough nice things about this condo and its owner. The condo is a cozy 2 bedroom condo with small but full size kitchen. The unit also has a full size washer and dryer. Both bedrooms are more than adequately sized for 4 people with two queen size beds. Both were very comfortable. The condo is very tastefully decorated in Georgia Bulldog style. So Tide fans may want to look elsewhere. All the furniture is heavy duty quality furniture; not the cheap stuff found in many rentals. And this place was SPOTLESS! Incredibly clean. Didn't even find any dust anywhere.

The owner does an incredible job of communicating all the necessary details prior to the trip and was very accessible during the trip. For example, a previous tenant had left sticky residue on the iron. I texted Mary Ellen and she responded within minutes with ideas for cleaning and where cleaning supplies were in the condo. Which by the way is fully stocked with about anything you might need to clean or repair something while you were there. Mary Ellen said she would buy a new iron and drop it by but she was out of town. We cleaned it the best we could. She provided a basket of books and guides for visiting Athens. Even included a bottle of wine for our visit.

OK, so no place is perfect. Here a a few annoyances.

1.The iron as mentioned above was sticky. But that's not the owner's fault. Some moron had no clue how to use an iron

2. The heat fan is very noisy. The gas heat is in an interior closet. And while those of you are used to a heat pump will love the "real heat", the fan is so loud that you have to turn up the TV volume to listen. It may disturb light sleepers also. Because it is real gas heat, the blower does not stay on very long or come on very often. Condo seems very well insulated. Similarly, the bathroom fans are quite noisy.

3. Finding the entrance to the complex is a little difficult. From town, the Wellington Court sign is half covered by bushes and not lighted. Management really needs to remove or cut them back.

4. The outside of the complex buildings are fairly worn and could use some paint and maintenance. But once inside Mary Ellen's condo, it feels like brand new construction. They did an excellent job of remodeling and decorating. We had no problem finding a parking space.

These are very minor nit picks. We highly recommend this condo and would definitely return again. Thanks Mary Ellen!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! We take pride in our condo and our goal is always to make our guests have a great stay. I always appreciate getting feedback and reviews even if some things are negative. Many things I can’t control. I do try to explain how to find condo due to sign visibility which I have mentioned to management before. It is an older complex in a college town, but once inside condo we have tried to do the best we can which I believe we did for your stay! We hope you will come again!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our Athens stay. The location is convenient - a short drive to campus, downtown, and the Classic Center. The condo was impeccably clean and comfortable, and we could not have asked for more. Our host was thoughtful to include some snacks for our son, and a bottle of wine for me. Little things like providing coffee, shampoo, and toothpaste made a huge difference. We will definitely try to stay here again on our next trip to Athens!

homey

  • 5 of 5

While a little hard to find at night using waze, once we found it and got inside, we found it too be homey and very well decorated. We really felt like we were at a B&B! We would definitely stay there again, and so appreciate all the extra touches!
