About the Homestay
Hello, we are married couple with no children living in the home.
We work from home and are easily available to answer questions and assist based on our availability. We have 2 rooms that share 1.5 baths together.
We are located in what is voted one of Atlanta's best walking neighborhoods, Virginia Highland. Our home is a renovated 1925 Craftsman style bungalow for which our neighborhood is known. Walk to nearby restaurants, shops, boutiques, parks, nightlife and festivals. We are central to all Atlanta has to offer. The light breakfast we provide is upon arrival and is available to get you started depending on length of stay.
We have been hosting our home to the corporate traveler and international students since 2013. We have many happy guests and students that have left us very heart warming reviews over the years.
When requesting to stay with us please tell us a bit about yourself, the nature of your visit and your expected schedule. Let us know if you have any special needs or requests.
**Due to the pandemic we have paused our hosting. We hope to return to welcoming guests by April 2021.
It will be our pleasure to welcome you. Krista & Scott
