My home is located approximately 11 miles from downtown Atlanta with easy public transportation. It's a quick train ride from the airport or approximately $9 cab fare, or if you make arrangements, we'll be happy to pick you up.
The guest room is one of three rooms in our house. It comfortably fits two guest.
Guests have access to the living room and TV, their room and bath, the kitchen, the backyard, and pool. We even have a bicycle available for guest's use while traveling without wheels!
I will be present during a guests stay and I like to be as hospitable as possible. We socialize on my back porch nearly nightly, even during winter, as we have an outdoor fire pit. We're always BBQing and generally having a good time. We are respectful of guests wishes for quiet and privacy, however!
Not at this time.
I expect my guests to treat my home as if it were their own and have respect for my friends, my dog and my property.
I will allow pets.
The only rules about smoking is that you must smoke outside and empty the ashtray periodically.
Hi! I am Mary aka Marion. I am a retired Army officer. After traveling all over the world to such exotic places as Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Bosnia, Kuwait, etc...I made my home in Atlanta. Seriously, I also lived in Germany, Greece and the Netherlands and have traveled to great places and definitely am afflicted with the travel bug, but Atlanta is my home now.
I happened to choose a great neighborhood and consider many of my neighbors as family. We normally share drinks and dinner most nights. You may find yourself invited to join in, but we will not invade your privacy. It's my backyard, but my friends have helped make it our little oasis. I grew up on the Puget Sound in Seattle and my best friend, Paty, grew up in Santa Maria, CA so we are beach girls living inland. We have done a pretty good job of creating that beachy feeling.
I just started a pet services business and often have a number of dogs in my backyard. Don't worry. They have to be nice dogs in order to visit.
I love getting to know new people and providing a nice, safe environment for your travels so I hope you will consider staying here!
