First of all, Safety: this is walk-around-at-night-and-arrive-in-the-dark-safe. Ponce/Vidal and Clairemont Estates is in the safest "zone" of all zones in Decatur; but that's kind of splitting hairs on a beautiful head of hair.

Don't get me started on our festivals: there's one for Books, Beer, Wine, Beach, Art, Makers, Blues, BBQ... no kidding. i swear next year we'll have a Zombie festival (we've had a rash of filming of zombie movies. Decatur being used for either the PRE-apocalyptic scenes or the sole remaining unspoiled Post-apocalyptic refuge)

3 blocks from MARTA train.
1 block from free Emory Shuttle

Decatur is, in fact, STILL, Georgia's most walkable city.
Make sure you download the Decatur, GA app!!
I have another AirBnB listing in Decatur, it's a 2BR and is 1,100 square feet. It's called Tree-Lined Private Decatur Duplex".

The apartment is not "shared" . it's your private apartment. This apt is about 500sq'; not lots of spreading-out room for a group, living room, bedroom, bathroom, eat-in kitchen. This is what realtors call a "terrace apartment", which means you walk in on ground level but while the back has full size window they are at shoulder height. NOT a basement apartment.

It's a triplex, the other two apts are long-term tenants. You share NO walls, but Very Civilized Behavior is expected. Tons of families and little kids; not asking anyone to be a mentor but... just sayin'
Also, if your profile on Air BnB is not yet "verified", you'll need to do that by checkin time. I'm OK if we book without verification completed yet.

Other things to note

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".

From NY Times April 2015---
Equal parts molasses-drawled Southern and au courant, Decatur, Ga., has in the last 20 years recast itself from the sleepy DeKalb County seat catering to commuting government nine-to-fivers to one of the South’s trendsetters. Residents say the township, six miles from Atlanta proper, is where “Mayberry meets Berkeley.” Bordered by Emory University and Agnes Scott College, Decatur is anchored by a late 19th-century courthouse (now the DeKalb History Center) and a leafy square dense with some of the state’s best restaurants, pubs and shops. The walkable downtown hosts more than three dozen festivals a year

The apartment is convieniently located close to downtown, I walked everywhere I needed to go while I was there. Scott was easy to get a hold of and flexible as he could be when I had a last minute schedule change. The neighborhood itself was quiet and peaceful as well. Thanks for a great stay!

Jaime User Profile

The location to this place was great. The area was quite and had easy access to restaurants and banks all within walking distance. There was a park I could take my kids to that was only about three miles away. Whole Foods was only about four miles away as well. That made grocery shopping really easy. Snacks and some area brochures were left for us upon arrival. That was a nice touch. Scott was friendly and stopped by one day to check in on us. The place could use a little fixing up and more attention to cleanliness, but all in all, I would say we got what we paid for. If you are looking for an inexpensive place that isn't too fancy with a good location, this residence would be a good choice.

(We Are) Scott And Margot User Profile

Decatur native, attorney, married to Atlanta native, 3 kids, urban gardener with about 750,000 bees and exactly 26 laying hens. Margot (9th grader!!) helps me with me pretty much everything in the Airbnb business. 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!!
