Wedding weekend family trip

  • 3 of 5

Very interesting and eclectic house. Plenty of room for 6 adults and 3 children with a bedroom to spare. Two kitchens was a huge plus. Beautifully furnished, everyone loved it. Carpeting showed wear and tear, understandably. The home is not used exclusively as a rental so the downsides were no room to store clothing, and the refrigerators were stocked with the owners food so we had to point out to the kids which shelves they could get food from. Also, the master bathroom was the only one with a working lock. The downstairs half bath/laundry has a hook to close the bifold doors that offers no privacy as a couple of us found out. Middle bathroom door lock upstairs doesn’t work. Work around is to announce “occupied” loudly. Unfortunately it had rained for several days before our stay so the back yard was very overgrown and not usable as a hangout and part of the fence was down in the back (could have been storm related, giving the benefit of the doubt) so we weren’t able to let our dogs run free. Having said that, if the food in the 2 refrigerators were consolidated to 1 so the other could be used without restrictions, bathroom door locks fixed, fence repaired, and back yard manicured, we would be happy to stay again. There were plenty of clean linens and washer and dryer worked great and the kitchens and living spaces were lovely.

Excellent for large groups

  • 5 of 5

My 8 friends and I stayed for a weekend. It is located in a lovely neighborhood and we walked in the morning to a bakery about a mile away. There are some restaurants nearby as well, but we drove downtown for dinner. The house itself has a very unique layout with 2 kitchens and lots of space to hang out in. And everyone had a bed! Great experience.

We came to Athens with family to attend our daughter’s graduation from UGA Law and needed a place to to house 6 people and then entertain with a lunch afterwards for 6 other guests. This home was perfect in every way! The host was very responsive and the home was extremely comfortable and the outside areas delightful. We look forward to staying here again! Thanks John for everything!

Big house with a lot of space to gather

  • 4 of 5

Six adults (2 couples and 2 singles) stayed here for 3 nights and we found it HUGE, a bit older that the photos show, but very comfortable. We didn't spend much time at the house as we were extremely busy with graduation festivities, but loved the big dining room when we did gather to eat once or twice. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because there wasn't enough hot water for more than one person to shower at any given time. We were late one morning because we didn't know this until the first person took a shower. Further, when someone was in the shower and a toilet flushed or water ran in the sink in another part of the house, the water in the shower turned ice cold! The owner was a great host, even called to tell us we had left something behind. Thanks!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! Glad you enjoyed the space. Sorry about the hot water problem. I talked to my plumber today and he is working on fixing the problem.

Perfect Athens Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful gathering space for large groups. We had six adults and four kids. The kids had the downstairs to themselves and the adults had plenty of room upstairs. Great indoor and outdoor seating space. Convenient to five points and campus. Nice, quiet neighborhood. Exactly what we were looking for!

Didn't meet our expectations

  • 3 of 5

Had not been adequately cleaned. There was a package salad that was spoiled. The toilet seat in the downstairs half bath had urine stains. The downstairs bedroom did not receive adequate heat compared to the upstairs bedrooms. The light in the parking area was not working.
