Overview

North Georgia Mountains Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

Great comfort and price in Athens!

Skip the hotel or tiny condo and stay with us for the same money (or less!) and spread out in our roomy, two-story townhouse.

Recent Updates! New high quality sleeper sofa mattress! New 12" thick memory foam mattress in rear bedroom. Upgraded linens. New HDTVs in both bedrooms with DVD players. Recent paint, new shower/bath enclosures, plus new washer and dryer, new sleeper sofa and loveseat, and updated kitchen supplies including Keurig K-Cup brewer (as well as a drip coffee maker), crockpot, blender, pots, pans, knives, bakeware, glasses, etc. We keep the condo nice and clean and well equipped.

Adjacent to the University of Georgia and convenient to downtown Athens, our townhouse is kept very clean. Quiet, overlooking open space (UGA Golf Course.) Right on the UGA bus route - bus #12 runs about every 15 minutes.

Ample parking. Small, well maintained complex of four brick buildings. The complex common areas and grounds are always in top condition.

Two bedrooms upstairs, each with full private bath and queen bed. Main floor has half bath, large den/dining area with sleeper sofa, and full kitchen with all expected amenities, private deck, and washer/dryer.

We look after every detail often missing at other rentals. We'll make sure there is fresh soap in the bathrooms, plenty of towels and washcloths, paper products, blankets, etc.

Enjoy a full kitchen, private washer and dryer, multiple bathrooms, and lots and lots of space compared to a hotel room! Feel free to bring food, beverages, etc. The condo includes silverware, plates, bowls, cups, glasses and so forth, as well as a coffee maker (Keurig and drip), toaster, microwave, can opener, cooking utensils, refrigerator, and things like that. High quality (KitchenAide & Cuisinart) pots/pans/knives/bakeware/utensils. If you find anything missing, let us know and we'll get it there as soon as possible!

A great home away from home for University of Georgia visits, such as freshman orientation, parent's weekends, Greek activities, football camp, football and basketball games, baseball, golf, and lacrosse or any time you need to visit your kids or friends at UGA. Also great accommodations for those popular Athens weddings and concerts!

We respond very quickly to inquiries and are very responsive to our guests. Use the inquiry form right here on this page, or feel free to give us a call. Leave a message if we don't answer and we'll return your call as soon as possible.

Our daughter enjoyed living in this condo during her time at the University of Georgia. We're sure you will enjoy your stay here as well, and we'll always take the extra steps to make sure everything is right.

HD television and HD cable service provided plus Blu-ray player.

We are using a professional cleaning service that does an outstanding job and understands they are our most important partner! They stand behind their work and will come out and fix anything if it's not clean.

Quite and comfortable condo.

  • 3 of 5

The condo townhouse was quiet and comfortable, exactly as it was described in the advertisement. It was furnished with all that we needed for our short stay in the Athens area.

The unit was clean, although a bit more attention to detail (oven, under the sofa, grout in bathrooms) would go along way. The beds were comfortable except for the sofa bed, which was not really serviceable.

We did experience a bit of a snag in obtaining the code for the key pad door system, but the owner quickly responded and solved the problem. We also had some difficulty in setting the air conditioning system.

Despite a the items mentioned, overall, it was what we needed for a family visit in the area.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review! We do strive to take very good care of our guests. I'll replace that sofa bed mattress. The sofa is only a couple years old, and sofa beds are notoriously uncomfortable, but it looks like Amazon sells replacement mattresses for those that people rave about, so we'll turn this one into a nice sleeping sofa bed. The air conditioner thermostat should allow one to set it as desired by simply pressing up and down arrows on the display. Of course guests can call if they need help with that. Hope to see you again in the near future!

Nice condo in a quiet, pretty neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We had four adults visit Georgia to attend a practice round of the Masters. The drive to Augusta was about an hour and a half, but it was nice to be part way between Atlanta and Augusta since we were flying in/out of Atlanta. Athens was a fun town with plenty of things to see and do in the area. We found several good restaurants and a beautiful state park/waterfall within nearby driving distance. The condo was nice and comfortable. The owner was quick to respond to any questions before our stay. With just a few minor updates, I would rate this condo 5 stars. The carpet could be cleaned or replaced, it was stained going up the stairs and the bathroom wallpaper was worn. We did enjoy staying here over a hotel. It was nice to have a place to relax and visit, which you don't really get with a hotel room. The husbands enjoyed a round of golf on the University of GA course, which was located just minutes from the condo. The location was great. We were just a short drive from downtown Athens. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback! We love our guests and are always very responsive. We had the carpet cleaned just a few weeks before your arrival, but prior guests were very hard on it and let the place a mess after a 2 week stay. Our housekeepers worked hard to get the stains up. Looks like I'll need to send the pros out again. We also plan to paint the entire unit very soon.

We enjoyed our stay at the condo. The people living around us were very nice and quiet.

  • 4 of 5

The owner was great to work with and always available. It does need some updating. New carpet and wallpaper in kitchen and bathrooms to cover holes from previous things hung there. The windows were very difficult to open and close. Just suggestions from someone who has a rental and likes suggestions!

Owner's Response: It was great having you for an extended stay! We do love feedback and suggestions and always take care of them to keep the unit very nice. We got a painting estimate just before you arrived and are having the entire unit repainted as soon as we have an adequate gap. We do this every few years because the walls do tend to get marked up in rentals. I touched them up last year but this time we're having a professional repaint from scratch, including kitchen and bathrooms. Thanks!

A cosy place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Located in a quiet, safe neighbourhood yet conveniently near UGA, we enjoyed our stay at the property. It had all the amenities of home including a full kitchen which we did utilize during our stay. If the apartment could be equip with a conventional chopping board in the kitchen for easy cleaning and a hair drier - it would have been perfect.

Jeff, the owner, was fantastic with the customer service: we had issues with a clogged toilet and invalid access code during our stay but the Jeff is immediately available to help via phone and the issues were resolved very quickly.

Overall, we would stay there again if we were to visit Athens, GA in the future.

Owner's Response: Thanks fo much, Ky-Anh. It was nice having you stay with us, and I appreciate the feedback on the hair dryers. I just ordered 3 Conair hair dryers - one for each bathroom - and a new set of cutting boards. I love feedback that helps me keep the condo well equipped so guests have a great stay. I hope to hear from you again soon, and keep in mind we have a number of vacation rentals in Destin, Florida too.
