About Vicki Joiner

We are a long-time Athens family. My husband was born here and I have lived here for over 40 years. We've raised our four children here and are very active in our community. We're active travelers and appreciate the comforts of home when staying in other cities. We strive to bring that same feeling to our home in Five Points. While not on-site, we can be available for any questions during your stay. We'd love to recommend some of our favorite places in Athens for dining, grocery shopping, live music, etc!

Vicki Joiner purchased this House in 2007

Why Vicki Joiner chose Clarke County

We chose this property because of our love of the area and all that it has to offer in such close proximity to a desirable and quiet neighborhood.

What makes this House unique

With a fenced-in yard, this home offers the added benefit of bringing your well-behaved dog along with you on your trip. Pre-approval and pet deposit required. Excessive barking is unfortunately not conducive to the neighborhood.

                                                  Natasha W.

                                                  We had a great stay in Athens! Beautifully remodeled and well appointed craftsman cottage in a terrific location made for a very comfortable stay. Vicki and her husband Hank were very responsive and helpful. Would highly recommend!

                                                  Lovely! Very comfortable!

                                                  Jane M.

                                                  This is a very comfortable, well-located property. We loved the craftsman details - next time we hope to stay when the weather allows use of the screened porch. The home is well-appointed and the kitchen had all we needed for our stay.

                                                  Clean,stylish modern conveniences-Perfect!

                                                  My wife and I couldn’t be more happy with our recent stay at the cottage. It was clean, superbly decorated and well appointed with modern high end appliances. Vicki was a wonderful host. We expect to stay again when we visit our UGA student.

                                                  A real home away from home. Beautifully decorated and stocked with everything needed to entertain.

                                                  We rented for our daughter's wedding. It was perfect for the girls to get ready and take pictures around the stunning setting of this home. The owners were so accommodating and available to us. The suite like bedrooms provided much comfort along with the big master bath. We want to rent this place now on all our trips to Athens, no matter what the occasion. There were so many hidden treasures, the lighting, sorround sound, porches, patios, gourmet kitchen, huge fridge, and perfectly located.

                                                  Beautiful home in lovely setting. We didn't want to leave!

                                                  This beautiful home was clean, comfortable and delightful. The screen porch was a wonderful place to drink coffee in the morning and wine in the evening while overlooking the beautifully manicured yard.

                                                  The perfect house for a wonderful weekend.
