I am retired after 30 years in the government service and my wife still works as an Epidemiologist at a federal agency in Atlanta. Our jobs took us to several enjoyable places. We've lived in the Philippines, Hawaii, Utah, Colorado and currently live in Decatur, GA. We both have Masters of Public Health degrees from University of Hawaii. We love to babysit our 3 grandchildren. We enjoy being with our relatives so we often go to Hawaii, California, North and South Carolina, Germany and London. Being in touch with family and friends is very important to us. We love to garden. My wife specializes in cottage style landscaping and the outcome of which ever which way design is actually marvelously and beautiful sight to see. I love to go fishing and go to the South Carolina coast and get excited when I catch those big red drums and release them afterwards.

Stone Mountain Park is a few minutes drive from the home. We understand the value of staying in a place where you can enjoy the house so we have put a lot of effort in making it pleasant, cozy and up-to-date in furnitures, appliances, etc. The house is cleaned by professional cleaners but we cross-check their job performance. Also, the home was newly landscaped to make it appealing.
The home was decorated by a professional decorator so the home evokes that enlighthening feeling while you are there. The property is surrounded by forest and birds flock to the property and they are fun to watch. The home gives that tranquil feeling even if it is close to the city proper. Few minutes away is the well known Stone Mountain Park. Close proximity of shopping areas including grocery stores makes the home an ideal location for travelers to enjoy their vacation. There are 3 decks. Open your French door you walk onto the master bedroom deck with a private view of the forested area. Adjacent to the kitchen area is the bigger deck where you can do your outdoor grilling your hamburgers, hot dogs, etc.
Thanks for allowing us to use your lovely home. We found it to be comfortable and just what we needed in a world full of fast-pace living. Your home has been a blessing to our family to come together and end the year.
At first when I pulled up, I was a little disappointed. The exterior was impressive in size, but appeared very aged. But after I retrieved the key and entered into the home..... It was as if I seen an oasis, while journeying in the desert for hours. The home is immaculate. Simply beautiful! And all the accommodations was unbelievable. The wonderful owners provide everything but food. It was a pleasure to stay in their home. Only thing I had to do besides purchase groceries was to purchase a tank exchange for the grill. Only thing I suggest they needed was a tall kitchen trash can and or some small kitchen trash can liners for the nice hideaway trash can under sink. Also if possible a larger recycling bin. But overall, my stay was great and very comfortable. Felt like Home. Nice neighborhood and All. I originally came to Georgia from NJ to watch my son Graduation, but ended up having a joyous vacation, in addition. And the owners decor was soothing. And they price was very reasonable for all they offered. I hope to try and make this a yearly event. Thanks again to homeaway.com and the Manangan family!
THE HOME WAS ABSOBUTELY WONDERFUL, THE OWNERS SAVED OUR LIVES BY RESERVING US THEIR BEAUTIFUL HOME AT THE LAST MINUTE. IT WAS PRETTY PRICY BUT LOVELY. I AM STILL WAITING FOR MY DEPOSIT BACK WHICH IS SLOW IN RECEIVING BUT OVERALL IT WAS NICE. WE HAD TO LEAVE EARLY DUE TO THE FACT WE HAD WWORK AND SCHOOL THE NEXT MORNING :-( BUT OVERALL IT WAS REALLY NICE.
The house is located in a perfect spot to visit Stone Mountain and the Atlanta area. The home is large enough to accommodate a big family or two families. If you are traveling to this area and would like the feel of living in a neighborhood this home is very spacious and you will have all the comforts of home. The home could use some maintenance, especially outside but I would recommend this rental. The owners did respond quickly to any problem or question we had before, during and after our stay.
Six adults and two babies located across the country met in Atlanta for Thanksgiving. The house was well kept, clean and had a well stocked kitchen. The location was great for site-seeing. There is a wonderful county park within a mile that has tons of stuff to do- playgrounds for little and big kids, skateboard park, basketball, etc.
It was too cold to use the outside deck when we were there, but that would be wonderful in warmer weather.
Just a note to tell you how much we enjoyed staying in your lovely home in Stone Mountain. We had a wonderful weekend and felt comfortable and cozy just like being at home when we were growing up. It is a great location. Would definitely book this property next time in the Atlanta and/or Stone Mountain area. It was perfect. Thank you for the wonderful memories we made.
I can save you LOTS of time. If you're traveling to the Atlanta or Stone Mountain area this is the PERFECT PLACE! The house is more beautiful than what you see in the pictures and there's lots more room in the house than you think. Everything that we needed was provided. New gas grill on a nice deck, several areas for entertaining, ping pong table, games, good wifi/internet, very comfortable beds, lots of pots, pans, etc for cooking and even cooking spices! An added touch is that these are the BEST owners I've ever delt with. They aim to please and are just an email or phone call away. My family and I were more than pleased with this house. I have family in the area so we had dinner and a cookout. When our guests arrived they couldn't believe how nice the place was.The kids LOVED it! The price is cheaper than a hotel. We will be back, LOOK NO LONGER, this is the PERFECT PLACE for your ALT/Stone Mountain vacation. It's close to everything and getting around in the area was a breeze. Just want to say to the owers, "A BIG THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!"
