Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Decatur Native attorney married to Atlanta native attorney, 3 kids, urban gardener with about 750,000 bees (not on this property!) and exactly 26 laying hens (not here either). Youth coach, Rotarian, Mountain Biker, Birder, Geek. I couldn't have imagined what an incredible business experience this has been for a young lady. Letting her convert a few of our apartments into short-term rentals has given her first-hand business experiences that babysitting just doesn't cover!!

Why the Owner Chose College Heights, Decatur, GA, USA:
When i retire, i'm going to build a Frank-Lloyd-Wright ish house on this creek, it's an amazing piece of property

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Decatur! Don't get me started..... It's a $5 uber ride to the train station Great dog walking. Great patio for hanging out. It's a side-by-side duplex but you only share ONE wall, and it's a hallway. You share no space at all, separate entrance, everything Late check-ins are never a problem since we'll assign you a door code, and you don't need to meet for your 'key". Early check-in and late checkout depend on both your requests and the preceding/ following guests', then me negotiating something reasonable. If the night before you is not booked (and we won't know until that afternoon!) we'd normally be happy for you to check-in at 8am.
