Enjoyed my 10 day stay. George and Asenah were great hosts. I enjoyed the extra touch of coffee, fruit, flowers and snacks. Very clean, comfortable bed, full kitchen. Wireless and fair amount of TV stations. I enjoyed the proximity to Marietta square (7 min walk). Enjoyed a Saturday afternoon brunch at Shillings and some entertainment in the park on the square. Enjoyed the beautiful old southern homes in the neighborhood. I was aware when the train went by but definitely not an issue. Adds a little character to the house. Never even noticed if there was late evening train.
From the moment that arrived to when left we were happy we found this house. It was perfectly located to see the sites and get where we needed to go. It was clean and you could tell it's been well taken care of. It was close to the square if you are looking to get something to eat and walk around to see the stores. The owners were very nice and friendly. We will definitely look at staying here again next time we are in town.
My family of 4 stayed here during the 4th of July weekend. We loved the location; close to the square with a variety of dining and drink options. This unit includes off street parking which we also appreciated. The owners are very friendly and outgoing. The unit was clean and overall had no issues!
As described -- comfortable and very convenient for the Marietta/Kennesaw area. Hosts were easy to contact andn handled minor issues graciously and promptly. This would be our first choice if we found ourselves in the neighborhood again. Thanks for everything!
Place was extremely clean . We were a family of 5 visiting Atlanta for a family reunion for the long weekend . Check in process was very smooth and the host was extremely easy to work with and communication channel was always open .
We enjoyed our stay . Only thing I would like to recommend is to upgrade the kitchen a little with more pots and pans ( we tried to cook a meal one night ). It was in a quiet neighborhood but yet close to Atlanta downtown (25mins )
I highly recommend booking this place.
