Why Dr. James chose Southwestern

"The Milano", is an excellent choice for families, individuals or groups with discerning taste and a respectable budget. When we built this home the builder paid every attention to architectural details, with custom carpentry, cabinetry, grainte, marble, tile, dramatic windows and more. The home is nicely decorated with transitional styling including contemporary & traditional furniture, yet not overstated or outdated.

What makes this house unique

"The Milano" is a very open and comfortable home in a gated community, close to expressways, the airport, downtown and other points of interest. Some guest have stated they didn't want to leave after checking in.... I really think you will love staying here!

Not impressed

  • 2 of 5

Beautiful home but needs lots of maintenance & cleaning.

Owner's Response: Regrettably, we had one guest check-in on the same date of a late check-out. Apparently, our house-keeping & maintenance did not provide the highest level of deep cleaning & service that we have previously been known for (e.g. several scheduled home warranty service items were not completed until the day after this guest checked out). We will gladly offer this or any guest with a similar experience a complimentary 1 night stay (subject to available dates). Our goal is to always offer our guest a very clean & maintained home so that they want to come back. Thanks for choosing the Milano!

Me and my family loved it. It was everything we wanted and more. I wish it was our home. If we ever come to Atlanta again this is the place to stay.

Please keep the Milano in mind on your next visit to Atlanta. Regards, Dr. James

Beautiful Home!!!

  • 5 of 5

My entire family loved this home. Everything described in the home description and the pictures are very accurate. The home was very clean and nicely kept. There was more than enough room for everyone to relax and get comfortable. We also loved the amenities that came with the house, including the Amazon Alexa, board games, bath robes, and Jacuzzi tub (which my grandson thought was a pool, so he spent a lot of time in it with his pool toys, lol). We had options to do some sightseeing while in Atlanta, but no one really wanted to leave this beautiful home, so we ended up staying in and spending family time together.

We want to thank the owner (Dr. James) for his quick responses to our questions and for his hospitality. He personally met us at the home at the agreed check-in time, explained everything to us and even gave us some advice on some local things to do.

We highly recommend this home and we are already making plans to book this home for our stay next year :--))

Owner's Response: Mr. Daniel W. and family were "outstanding" guest, the kind that host like me and others are praying for. Very soft spoken, humble and kind...not to mention they took exceptional care of my home. Their review is very generous and reminds me how important it is for me to continue doing my job as "Host". A special kudos to Ms. M.P., my housekeeper, Mr. F.L., groundsman, Mr. M.C., handyman, and my home warranty company (alway's on call for other service repairs). Team work makes the dream work! Thank you for choosing the Milano, and we look forward to your return:)
