The house sits above the street on the corner of Piedmont and 8th Street with sweeping views of the Midtown skyline. The main house and carriage house may be rented together or separately.
The main house has a large relaxing front porch with a comfortable furniture grouping, original wood floors throughout, 14' ceilings, stained glass windows, original wood paneling, and large windows that overlook the stunning Midtown skyline.

The second floor has three large bedrooms, two with king beds and one with a queen bed, a sitting room with double-size sleep sofa, and two baths.

The carriage house was built three years ago and is a one-bedroom studio with kitchen, dining area, and king bed plus a separate full bath. It is open and bright and has a more contemporary decor. Under the carriage house is a two-car garage, a valuable commodity in this area of town where parking is scarce and towing strictly enforced. One or both spaces in the garage can be included with either the main house or the carriage house rental.

The home is also perfect for events such as weddings, luncheons, showers, club meetings, parties, business meetings, retreats, etc. A number of our guests have held open houses, dinners, and cocktail parties. Several movie studios have filmed scenes inside our home. There is a event fee of $1,000/ day. If you are staying in the home for at least three nights, the event fee is $200 - $1,000 depending upon the event. Please inquire about rates.

Our company took 7 people to a trade show in Atlanta. This house worked perfectly for our week stay. Close to everything and so much more fun and relaxing than a small hotel room! The garage for parking was definitely a plus.
I recently rented this house for my wedding. We had a very small (30 people) ceremony in the backyard followed by a cocktail reception in the home. It was absolutely gorgeous. Everyone remarked about the beauty of the home. The pictures are spot on. Everything is lovely! The home owners were also very flexible and easy to work with. We were under a lot of pressure and stress at the time and they helped us make sure the day was perfect. We also put our parents and siblings in the house for the weekend. They loved it, especially the master suite upstairs! I highly recommend this property for a special event or weekend getaway. One other note: the house is located within walking distance to midtown. Lots of bars, restaurants and happenings are in the area. It's a convenient location, particularly if you don't have a car. The guest house in the backyard is also nice because it has a kitchenette. So there's some privacy there if you need it. Enjoy!
The Royal is an absolutely stunning home. Classic design, yet very modern amenities. Nestled in popular midtown area of Atlanta, this home is in a fantastic location. Close enough to walk to many amazing restaurants, parks, etc., just a short drive from the major attractions (ie acquarium, zoo, etc). The owner, Karen, was phenomenal to work with. We will definitely be staying at the Royal for our next visit to Atlanta. Oh, forgot to mention...parking is a premium in this area...the home has a detached 2 car garage for guest's use!!!!
House is in great location!!! Clean great porch!!
I normally just right short sweet nice reviews....BUT this home FAR exceeded my expectations! Pictures don't do this home justice. Because of how IMPRESSED I was, I must let everyone know too in a very detailed description! I chose this home due to Karen being so wonderful & helpful & also the location was AWESOME! have stayed in many rental homes, hotels, cabins etc...But this home is AMAZING! Karen was very informative and helpful making this trip so much easier. I have to say right when I walked into her beautiful home it was love at first sight! When you enter the house from the garage you're greeted with a must have mudroom for guests shoes & hang your jacket. Then I took just a few steps forward and was completely amazed by quality and comfort of all the furnishings...it was UNBELIEVABLE! All the cookware was top of the line , most beautiful dishes/silverware, etc...& if that wasn't enough every bedroom has to die for sheets, and cloud 9 bed & pillows to match! I never slept so good! All the applicances are stainless steel and loved using every single one of them. I loved waking up every morning walk down that beautiful staircase to the kitchen before my kids woke up and just sit down and enjoy my coffee and think to myself what an awesome decision I made choosing this home!! All the detailed little things you would forget to bring, is already here...including laundry detergent, fabric softner (which made my families clothes smell SO GOOD)...You name it, this home has it!!! She thought of EVERYTHING! All you need to bring is your toothbrush and a change of clothes! This home is in the most beautiful location. The front porch view of downtown was nothing short of breath taking! Without a doubt will be staying here again! Thank you Karen for allowing us to stay in your home. And even though it was for a weekend....walking down the grand staircase made us feel like royalty!!!
Our crew came in for the football game and were lucky enough to book Karen's property. I cannot say enough about what a wonderful experience we all had. Karen's communication throughout the entire process was fantastic and the house was even better. Upon arrival we had very good instructions and were amazed at just how awesome the house truly is. The pictures online are great however they simply do not depict what a beautiful place it truly is. They have done a great job of keeping its vintage look and feel while also providing a spotless, inviting and comfortable place to stay. There are many great restaurants and bars within walking distance and we all felt very safe walking the streets late at night. By the end of the trip everyone joked about just moving in.
If you are looking for a cool place to stay and an awesome experience you can't go wrong. A huge THANKS to Karen for providing us New Orleans crew a wonderful experience in spite of us losing the game!! HAHA We can't wait to come stay with you again!
