About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

This house is our dream home! However we spend half the year in abroad and open it up to respectful renters for the time we are away. We are walking distance to the bars and restaurants of the hip Normaltown area and short walk or a quick bus ride or Uber to downtown. Our home has 2 bedrooms, one bathroom, a modern kitchen, dining room and living room. Living room has a fold out couch for accommodating a 5th guest. Our backyard is large, beautiful and completely fenced in for keeping your dog from escaping. We have all your basic amenities including a grill for outdoor BBQs.

Available for longterm rentals of 1 to 6 months for the fall and winter.

About Fife Bentley

I have lived in Athens since 2003 and love the community and easy access to some many great activities. I spent 5 years in central america, first with the peace corps then working for NGOs. I currently spend half the year abroad during which time I rent my home out.

Fife Bentley purchased this house in 2015

Why Fife Bentley chose Metro Atlanta, Central & Southern

I bought this house because its location, classic style, big back yard and modern kitchen. This is my dream home and I take very good care of it. You'll love the ability to stroll over to one our neighborhood bars or restaurants in the afternoon or evening.

What makes this house unique

Big back yard that is great for dogs. Doggie door that can accommodate all but the biggest dogs. House is fully equipped for cooking.

Clean, lots of room, big yard and great location

  • 5 of 5

Best location in Athens and a great house. We normally travel with our two dogs, and we were able to walk them everyday in this laid back neighborhood. Spent time walking and dining in downtown with our friends. Make sure to walk to The Grit for breakfast, Ike and Janes for doughnuts and Hindershots for coffee.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words!. I also recommend, if you have the time, to take the dogs out to Burton park, about 8 minutes from the house. There is a creek and lots of green space for the dogs to run around. Also, afternoon beers at Normal Bar, BBQ sandwiches at White Tiger and catching a band on Sunday evenings at HiLo are all part of my favorite things to do within walking distance. Cheers!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I rented Fife's home in Athens this past week. His home presented well and is well maintained and located in a great location near the UGA campus. Fife was extremely prompt with any inquiries that I had and communicates well. When I do return back to Athens I will definitely want to stay in his home again.

The house offers two bedrooms and 1 bath with an updated kitchen. There is also a washer and dryer on the back porch area. It's a great place!

Good property in a pinch

  • 3 of 5

I needed a place to stay that would take my little dog, and ALL the hotels were full for the weekend! I found this house, and it was nice. The only thing was it didn't really have very comfortable furniture, so if you had guests over, or even if you wanted to sit and enjoy the place, you couldn't. Nor could I ever get the TV to work? But it served its purpose -- the beds were comfortable, and it was clean. The owner was very available, as I had some problems with getting in using the keyless system. He was always available by email to respond.

Owner's Response: Hello! It was a pleasure to host you and your pup! I hope found the pictures online to accurately represent our home. If you were to stay again, please don't hesitate to reach out if you have a problem with the TV or other. Sorry to hear that you found our furniture uncomfortable. We may have different tastes in furniture. I especially like the yellow chair (throne as I call it) for reading in. I hope you had a great meeting. Warmest regards, Fife

Very pleased with this property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for 3 nights - Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. It was a very nice house and super clean with a fully stocked kitchen, although we didn't cook anything since we were so busy running around town. It was amazing to be able to bring our dogs with us since it breaks my heart when I have to board them. The yard was completely fenced in so no worries about them getting out. The location was excellent, a very quiet neighborhood and close to everywhere we wanted to go. There was also a driveway for parking. The owner, Fife, is very responsive and helpful and I highly recommend this property and we will stay here again on our next visit to Athens!

Quaint House with Fenced-In Yard and Good Price

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this quaint little home for a couple days while visiting the UGA campus as a possible grad school for our 21-year old son. There were four adults and our two golden retrievers. It's in an older area of town, but the house was just what we were looking for, especially with the fenced-in yard for our two dogs. It took us just minutes to get to all the shopping and restaurants you could want, downtown Athens, and the UGA campus. The house was in great condition and extremely clean. The owner, Fife, was easy to work with and went out of his way to have little extras in the house like plenty of sheets and towels, soaps, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, garbage can bags, etc. We did feel there needed to be more silverware as there were only four spoons and maybe 6 forks, but overall, it was all we needed for a couple days. If our son ends up going to grad school at UGA, we would love to stay in this house again when we come to visit him!

Owner's Response: Thanks you for your kind words as well as letting me know about the silverware. We'll have to get re-stocked up this month. Warmest regards, and we hope to have you as guests again in the future.
