We loved Jill's house. Its spacious and fits 6 people or more easily. The kitchen is a great place for a shared meal and the neighborhood is quite and green. Everything was as described. We were provided with towls, linens, shampoo, etc. in the three bathrooms. There are some nice restaurants close by. It takes about 15 min to Atlanta downtown. Thanks for the hospitality, Jill!

My family stayed at Jill and Bert's home for my sister's wedding week. Jill and Bert were wonderful hosts and welcomed us into their home as if we were family. Jill baked us homemade cookies which greeted us upon our arrival. She left a detailed binder of information about the home and local restaurants to check out which were all fantastic! She even left menus for her recommended restaurants. Her home was filled with everything that we needed to make our stay comfortable. The beds were really comfy and there was plenty of space for us to host a rehearsal dinner. The home itself was absolutely beautiful. It was adorned with gorgeous art and thoughtful reading material. The kitchen was large and although we didn't have a chance to use it, there was a hot tub ready for us! We would recommend this home to anyone for any occasion and would absolutely return. Thank you, Jill and Bert!!

Jill was incredibly helpful. Our flight was late and got us to the house about 2 hours after we had told her we would arrive. She patiently waited and greated us with a warm smile and warm cookies. The house was super cool and we all felt right at home. Thanks so much Jill!!!!

Very nice home. Is the owners private home, and they were very willing to share towels, TP, even condiments and creamer from the fridge. On the other hand, we felt almost intrusive as it is much more "personal" than some Airbnb's that are clearly guests-only with family photos, artwork, etc. Jill baked us cookies twice while we were there, which was very sweet.

I am a retired Human Resource manager. I enjoy reading, cooking, traveling, and hiking. I volunteer as an English tutor to middle school girls who are refugees from all over the world. My husband, Bert, and I, enjoy hosting book clubs at our house. We also teach adult courses at Emory University in the Olli program for seniors. We rotate our time visiting our seven grandchildren in Seattle, San Diego and Chapel Hill. I admit to being a Words With Friends addict.

We take great pleasure in meeting and hosting our guests from Airbnb. They have enriched our lives and we look forward to making new friends.
