Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Centrally located in Emory, Virginia Highland, and Druid Hills. Perfect for Emory students/family, film production crew, Stranger Things fans, or anyone who wants the perfect Atlanta location. The closest and only house available in proximity to the Stranger Things building, only an old Candler Mansion granite wall in between. The best front and back yard in the neighborhood, professionally landscaped. Brand new bathroom. Meticulously cleaned and ready to enjoy!

The space
*11/19- calendar has just opened for November-January after being blocked* Minimum reduced to 14 days for December and January in between long term stays.

We love this home and we hope you get to enjoy it too! Beautiful, professionally landscaped yard front and back, with wildlife all around. Free tomatoes and peppers from the garden in the summer! Pesticide-free garden and yard.

This was our home and we have many upgrades, including Haiku smart fans by bigassfans, which run magnetically pretty much energy-free. A huge 84” BAF fan for the back porch to make even the summer months bearable. 55” Samsung TV on back deck, 65” Sony TV in living room. Gas grill (2019). New bathroom (2019). Upgraded kitchen with stainless steel appliances- LG fridge, Bosch dishwasher, gas range. Top of the line LG washer and dryer. Top grain leather, down filled cushions, high end couch. Dyson air purifier/fan to keep the air clean. Meticulously cleaned and maintained. Deep cleaned inside between every guest. Coffee to get you started- with your choice of using the coffee maker or French press- Krup coffee grinder.

***As of March 2020, we have an all new, top of the line HVAC system. Absolutely everything was replaced by a perfectionist installer- including the furnace, stack, and all new duct work. Hard to find, especially in older homes. Your family will have great air quality, with reliable and efficient heating and air.

The majority of our guests book for a month or longer, because of this, and the fact we are booked far out, we are making the minimum 28 days and catering to longer stays***

Have dinner outside on the deck, watch your favorite show while grilling, with the Stranger Things building right behind. Outdoor mini-fridge to keep drinks cold. Use the fire pit with the same building towering above, 120+ feet from the nearest neighbor. A 6 foot wall and you are on the property of the Hawkins lab, although we recommend walking up one block to the front of the entrance to explore. This property includes the historic Candler Mansion, which used to be Asa Candler’s estate in the 40s. We have a bamboo privacy wall above the granite, please don’t go over it without contacting us- we will give you some options!

House is around 1500 sq ft, outdoor living space is around 375 sq ft and an extension of the house. Best suited for small families.

Mattresses are plush, but not too soft- so comfortable! The mattress in the front room is brand new and is still getting broken in (on the firmer plush side for now). Four high quality white down pillows on each bed. Please let us know if you have an allergy, we have alternative pillows to replace them with. Top of the line 800 thread count cotton sheets.

Office/wet bar area. We left our 3 monitor setup. More than most will need, but amazing for a working professional or Emory student. 3ghz computer. Printer available.

The flagstone walkway leads to a cedar swing with pergola overlooking the back yard.

1 mile from the intersection of Virginia and Highland, walkable from all residential roads (no busy roads). 1.2 miles from Emory Village and the main campus.

We have one camera on the property, a ring spotlight used mainly for the light which shines on the two car parking spaces. Used as a deterrent and for safety when house is unoccupied. We don’t look at footage unless there is an issue. There is a switch inside to turn it off, and you are more than welcome to. The switch is labeled inside the house. Super safe street.

We like to have fresh flowers inside when we can, please let us know if you would like us not to due to allergies.

We do not just get cleaners for a couple of hours between stays like most rentals. We pay for a deep clean, and then spend an entire day ourselves making sure it’s just right! This is why we typically don’t do short stays.

While we aren’t allowing pets, we are dog lovers and will consider it on a case by case basis, with strict rules. No cats.

Thank you!
