About David Walens

My wife and I have been long time residents of Atlanta both moving to Atlanta in 1977.

David Walens purchased this house in 1987

Why David Walens chose Atlanta

This property has been in our family since 1987. We have rennovated the property and want to share this historical house.

What makes this house unique

The house is in Historic Grant Park in downtown Atlanta across the street from Zoo Atlanta. The house is a bungalow and was built in 1908. It has been renovated but keeps the charm of period with 9' ceilings, 3 original fireplaces and an active wood burning stove. The front porch is extends across the front of the house while the back yard is fenced with a stone patio and fire pit for relaxing evenings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Historic 648 is a fantastic house. Our 10 people live in this house for 3 days and 2 nights. We have a good time in it. Everything in the house are tidy and very good. The long history of the house also brings some fantastic feeling. If we come to Atlanta again, we will still choose Historic 648.



Best,

Cute and cozy!

  • 4 of 5
I stayed here with a group of 8 girls for my bachelorette party. We had the best time and the home was decorated so cute! We loved the big front porch and spent a lot of our time out there. There was plenty of space for all of us and there neighborhood felt very safe. We plan on making an annual girls weekend out of it!

Charming craftsman bungalow in a great location

  • 5 of 5
My 6 friends and I had a great weekend in Atlanta in this charming home. It slept all of us comfortably. It was very clean and well decorated to match the style of the home. We made use of the great outdoor spaces w/ the backyard firepit and the front patio that's perfect drinking your coffee while saying hi to the friendly neighbors walking through the neighborhood. It was a great location w/ easy access to I-20. Plenty of memorable nearby restaurants in Grant Park, Edgewood, Cabbagetown, and Little 5 Points. The property owner was very responsive and helpful with any questions. I highly recommend this rental property and its owners.

This property was not as listed, and less

  • 2 of 5
Using the questions listed from the review tips and guidelines provided by VRBO, I can say that the listing was accurate regarding the location. Next, though, the listing photos show the rental to be brightly lit and clean - it was neither. Only a few lightbulbs worked in each of the ceiling fixtures, and definitely the most disturbing fact was the lack of cleanliness, both in the house and outside on the front and back porches. Some examples were crumbs inside of the microwave and refrigerator, and hair in a bathtub. Additionally, the listing was erroneous on many features: It did not sleep 8, the foldout sofa was from another era and dirty; the wifi did not work; and the toaster oven and refrigerator ice maker were broken, for examples. The owner was out of town, but his daughter and son-in-law came over and tried to rectify many of our immediate concerns. (Thus, the rating of "Fair" instead of "Poor.") Despite the time we lost dealing with the house, we enjoyed our stay in Atlanta. My subsequent correspondence with the owner upon his return gave me very little satisfaction. The owner did refund the cleaning fee but he disputed all of my concerns. Finally, to answer the second to last question, of would I recommend this property to a friend or relative, the answer is no.

Owner's Response: It is unfortunate when we don't meet a guests expectations. We as a family work very hard to make sure every experience at the house is the best it can be as evidenced in the 38 reviews we have online and the hundreds of excellent reviews in our guest book. We have made our historic house available to guest for over 3 years with nothing but positive experiences. While it is your prerogative to write a review it is our responsibility to our guests to make sure it accurate. The house was immaculate, the wifi worked fine, the house does sleep 8 with clear pictures of the sleeping arrangements online including the pullout couch and the lighting is the exact same from the pictures. We also have lamps in these rooms for additional lighting. Because we are committed to customer service we even gave you a credit in spite of my daughter coming back out and resolving your issues. Your request for an additional 500.00 discount was simply unjustifiable and unfair. We are sorry we couldn’t meet your expectations.

Lovely Bungalow in Quiet, Convenient Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5
I recently had a 4-day business trip to Atlanta and didn't want the sterile hotel experience. I picked Rosalia for the quite yet convenient neighborhood and the character that showed in the pictures. We could not have been more pleased. From the moment we first pulled up to the curb to the moment we parted on Sunday. Such a tastefully decorated home. Well appointed kitchen, huge dining room, lovely living room and comfy beds with high-end linens.

We were going to eat out every night, but actually wound up cooking in two of our three nights. And we have fond memories of watching the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics, when we decided it was more comfy hanging out than hitting the town.

We could not recommend this home more highly.

Not to sound corny, but we actually had a tear in our eyes when we closed the door for the last time on Sunday.

Hope and Dan

Great Location, Very nice home!

  • 4 of 5
Very good location, conveniently located approx 10 from downtown and most major attractions. Property was very clean and well maintained. Nicely decorated and comfortable beds. The owner Dave was very courteous and even allowed us to check in a little early because we arrived ahead of schedule. The little cafe around the corner Ziba's was great for breakfast.
