This newly renovated 1910 Craftsman bungalow will feel like home no matter what area of the world you are coming from. Decor is simple, quiet, natural, and "green" in this clean, spacious studio apartment enhanced by 9' ceilings, crown molding and hardwood floors. A full bath with shower/tub, well-stocked kitchen and washer-dryer, and wifi, are all available. Enjoy elegant country living close to the city. Guests are welcome to de-stress, walking the meditation-labyrinth in the front garden.
This spacious 1910 studio apartment with original hardwood floors and 9' high ceilings trimmed in crown molding is best suited for 1-2 adult guests. A smoke-free, pet-free space, a new queen sized mattress is offered along with simple furnishings to ensure a quiet environment for relaxing. Designed to be environmentally friendly, there are thermal windows which may open as well as a ceiling fan to keep air fresh. A couple of fresh green plants add a boost of oxygen to the air. A stacked washer-dryer is available in the laundry area for cleaning clothes during longer stays. A designated parking spot in the rear lot close to the apartment entry door and flood lights provide safety and comfort.
Guests have full use of the entirely private studio apartment, including a full bath, well-equipped kitchen and own laundry room, as well as the back deck with chairs and string lights in the evening. Use of the outdoor gas grill or fire pit is permitted (just let us know ahead). One of the front porch swings is available if you'd like to relax with a book or refreshing drink. If you'd like to de-stress, walking slowly around the front garden labyrinth can calm you naturally.
Interaction with guests
We live just on the other side of this duplex- bungalow, so I am readily available to help if you need anything. But we will assume that you prefer to have the privacy of your own time and space and remain "hands-off" during your stay.
Other things to note
My home office is located just adjacent to the guest apartment so at times a small sound machine (white noise) may be utilized in the office to enhance privacy when I am with clients (day and evening hours, no weekends).
This is a quiet home, great if you appreciate noise levels which are a bit lower, as we do.
Guests staying 2 weeks or more are asked to pay $75 (instead of the usual $45 cleaning fee) every 2 weeks so that a professional cleaner can come in to do a deeper clean every 2 weeks.
Smoking violations incur an automatic $250 fee per incidence.
From Sep 1 - Nov 30, 2017 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
I grew up in Asia. I value the earth and simple living, reflecting this in creating a natural, breathable environment for my guests. I can also recommend some great Asian restaurants in the Atlanta area! In addition to NY & NJ, I've also lived and worked in Egypt, Puerto Rico, and Europe for a number of years and welcome guests from other cultures.
While I enjoy being hospitable, I also understand my guests' need for privacy and give them space to enjoy their home away from home without a lot of interruptions, while staying available for any questions that may arise.
Helping people de-stress and heal from trauma is my work and passion. I've built a meditation labyrinth in the front yard garden that I hope guests will feel free to use to slowly walk and allow their minds to clear so concerns can begin to resolve and insights can evolve.
