About the property

Studio, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

The perfect size for a couple – or two very good friends! – visiting as tourists or for a furnished long-term stay. Recently renovated, it boasts hardwood floors, lots of light, and a vaulted ceiling and fan combo that will make you feel like you’ve got your very own (very luxurious) tree house.

A large studio - some call it "The Treehouse." Very private and bright. King bed and full bath as well as washer/dryer.

About Sarah K Smith

I was born here, went to college here, started a thriving business here, and found true love here. But I’ve been to many other cities and countries and believe, wholeheartedly, that I live in the best city in the world. (For me.) (And maybe for you – at least for a memorable visit.)

There’s just so much to do whether you love culture – museums, galleries, theater, music, nightclubs – or are drawn to more outdoor activities like hiking, biking, strolling through historic districts and/or checking out all the modern marvels. And it’s family friendly as well – zoos, children’s museums, and the Georgia Aquarium.

Sarah K Smith purchased this studio in 2004

Why Sarah K Smith chose Buckhead

The house is situated in the southern-most part of Buckhead, one of the most expensive zip codes in Atlanta; but, because it is practically in Midtown, the area’s nicknamed “Bucktown.” In addition to having the convenience of a two-car garage, the backyard is cute, and the front porch affords great privacy.

Beware of false claims and last minute cleaning request by owner

  • 1 of 5

BEWARE - I rented this unit for a month (Dec 2017 to Jan 2018). I had no issues until the day prior to leaving. Although I was charged a cleaning fee up front, the day before leaving I was asked to wash all of the linens and towels etc. As mentioned by the owner - "the cleaning ladies do not like to do laundry"! I wish I had known that prior to renting - I would have asked for a reduction in the amount I was charged for the cleaning fee! Also, there was no final inspection when I left. I would have like to have an inspection to confirm the home was left in the same, if not in better condition than when I received it. The check out procedure was to leave the key under the doormat. A few days after I had returned home I received a text message from the owner asking me if I could help her figure something out? She said the apt had a musty smell and asked had I noticed it while I was there? I stated I did not ever notice any smells. She texted me again asking if I had used any perfumes, scented candles or air freshner. I informed her I wore Versace perfume and used Lysol and a Christmas scented spray while there. She said there is a strong smell and she doesn't know where its coming from. I asked her to let me know if she finds it. That was the end of conversation, I never heard back from her. I figured she had found the smell. A few day later I received an email from the insurance company for damages to carpet $500 and damages to the couch of $1000.00. These claims are false and fradulent! There is no carpet in the home only hard wood floors! The couch was not damaged! The owner is contradicting herself - she asked me about a musty smell but goes and files a fradulent claim not for a smell but for property damage in the amount of $1500.00! Never once mentioning damages to carpet or couch to me. If the smells were that strong they would penetrate everything all penetrable material in the apt - bed, linens, mattresses, towels, curtains etc!! It's unfortunate that my memory of this stay has been marred by these false accusations! I am a fan of VRBO/Home Away and have NEVER had an unfavorable comment against me NOR had to write one. This has been a huge disappointment.

Decent space, but lack of communication from owner

  • 3 of 5

The space was everything I needed during my stay, it didn’t have any bad odors, was in a good, safe location and was nicely decorated. The areas that lacked, were cleanliness and communication from the owner.

When I arrived it looked lovely at first glance! However, the sheets on the bed were not clean and had a big hole in it, the pillows were very stained, the pans and other utensils were covered with old sticky food, kitchen items were haphazardly tossed inside cabinets, there was hair all over the bathroom and towels, and in plain sight under the edge of the couch were old dust covered potato chips. The refrigerator also leaked water which got on my food and sometimes poured on the floor if you opened the bottom draw. The stove is ancient, but was clean and worked fine.

The biggest issue I had was lack of communication from the owner. I was given the wrong keys when I moved in (door was unlocked so I didn’t know right away) and I had a family emergency that I needed to leave for. When she did finally reply, I was already out of state. The right keys were left on the door the whole week I was gone; if she fully read my message she should’ve waited till I was coming back to leave them, for my piece of mind regarding the safety of my unattended belongings. Several times I was unable to pull in or out of the driveway because work was being done, but was given no notice this was taking place. She also let herself into the apartment with no notice when I wasn’t home. One morning I was awoken to men outside my windows (they were painters), again with no notification they would be there for 4 days! After they were there a few days, I did get a text at 1:30am that they would need to have my door opened for a few hours to paint it early that same morning. Gee thanks for the warning! I said no to them coming with such short notice when I’d be sleeping, and then days later they must’ve been there because it was painted but I was not given notice of what day they’d be there. I came home one day to have a couch in my parking spot. Text messages to the owner about it went unanswered and the couch remained there for over a month and was still there when I moved out.

The space itself is great, the issues I had may not happen to others, especially if only staying a short time, and those issues I had can be worked on by the owner so future stays will hopefully be better.

We want to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this adorable bungalow for a full month this summer. I enjoyed exploring Atlanta with my kids and husband. The location is very central. I found that having a garage and back yard was nice (when the weather wasn't too hot).

We're hoping to come back next summer. We have family in the area so it is very convenient to Piedmont Hospital and Buckhead. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Just Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay if safety, privacy, and the perfect location are important to you! My visit lasted six weeks and I wouldn't have changed a thing. Sara Kathryn is truly a Southern lady and a great host!

Love the Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

We have a relative in the hospital here in Atlanta and found this "carriage house" as we knew we would have a prolonged stay. It is in a great location and really cute and comfortable. We love having this "home away from home". The owner is most accommodating and helpful with suggestions for restaurants, etc. We love being here!
