About the property

1 bdrm, 2 ba private retreat with unique spa room, hot tub, sauna, steam shower

A click of your personal remote device will open the private driveway gate to your own parking space and entrance to your terrace level apartment in a beautiful, close-in Atlanta neighborhood - just 15 minutes from Midtown, Emory, CDC, Georgia Tech, downtown historic and contemporary sites. Shopping, golf courses, Stone Mountain Park, and all the professional and college sports events and concerts imaginable are nearby!

When 'at home,' though, enjoy the quiet, private comfort and amenities of a large terrace level apartment that includes spacious rooms, fireplace, granite kitchen, a pool table, game table, and large flat screen TV. Cable, Netflix, and free Wi-Fi.

One large bedroom has a California king size bed. Two additional beds are available for children or adults and can be placed wherever you like.

You'll REALLY feel special when you open the leaded glass doors to a separate, private wing, revealing an exotic spa room with an elevated hot tub, sauna, steam shower, lounge area, wet bar, and bathroom. In the evening, dim the lights in the dome ceiling of the spa room to create the mood for fun and relaxation.

Enjoy the same apartment that was occupied for four months in 2014 by an actor who was in Atlanta to star in a television series being filmed here!

The terrace level apartment is in a large, beautiful family home in a safe, quiet neighborhood. Interstate I-85, which is a two-minute drive away, leads right into Midtown and Downtown.

About Sylvia Davidson

My husband and I are longtime Atlanta residents and are active in the community. So, we feel comfortable with making suggestions about things to do in the Atlanta area. We'd be happy to give directions to major tourist sites or to funky neighborhoods and restaurants. We've used VRBO many times over the last 15 years throughout Europe and USA and always enjoy having our own 'home' and getting to know neighborhoods in other places. That experience led us to offer our own unique private retreat as a 'home away from home' for other travelers!

Sylvia Davidson purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Sylvia Davidson chose Atlanta

First of all, Atlanta has been our home for most of our lives. It's a beautiful city, forested with an incredible variety of trees, shrubs, and flowers. First-time visitors to our city are amazed at how green it is - even inside the city limits! The property is practically surrounded with densely wooded areas, adding to the quiet, private feeling. However, it's close-in (inside the perimeter) and only 15 minutes from midtown, Buckhead, and downtown!

What makes this apartment unique

The location of the property certainly appealed to us from the first time we saw it. What really wowed us, though, was the spa wing of the house. The WOW factor, for sure!

Quiet, cozy neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a long weekend in mid-April. We had a nice time and Sylvia was always very responsive to emails/texts. She was more than willing to make suggestions of things to do in the area with kids and places to eat. I was disappointed to find out the pool area was closed when we went (only open summer months according to VRBO website, although specific months not stated). As a family from the Midwest, we made the assumption that 70/80 degree weather is warm enough to go swimming! That also meant that the pool deck was closed and there was nowhere for us to sit outside to enjoy the weather or have a meal. We had one day of significant rain, and the dome in the spa leaked on the floor A LOT! The owners were already aware of the issue and we were told to put down towels. The last thing you want to be doing on vacation is moping up water off of the floor! It also makes for a safety hazard on tile.

Im extremely upset with myself for not find this place a long time ago. Whenever I return to Atlanta this is the only place I want to stay. Hilton...step your game up. The spa wing is lovely and the entire property is very well maintained. The owner are very responsive to your needs and will make sure you are happy with your stay. Im looking forward to my next trip.

Spacious Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This basement apartment had it all - privacy, comfort, luxurious hot tub, fireplace, big screen tv, and off-street parking. It was the perfect spot for two adults and two 20-something children visiting Atlanta for the long weekend. The location is convenient to shopping and eating in Atlanta. I would highly recommend this VRBO. Thank you!

Myself, my wife, 5yo, & 7month old stayed here for a week around the new year. We had a great experience! The property is as advertised, and close to everything. Very cozy, with all the comforts of home. Not sure why you would stay in a regular hotel room with a property like this to enjoy. Owners were very nice, and accommodating. We will be back!

Atlanta Trip

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I haven't been to Atlanta in years and wanted to visit for the weekend. At the same time, we did not want to stay in the downtown area due to traffic, parking, etc., but rather within a 15-minute drive of this area. Found this location and loved the experience. The owner of the residence was extremely gracious and accommodating. She provided a lot of information about the area and made you feel extremely comfortable. The space was extremely clean and spacious. The hot tub area - with sauna - was fantastic! Would highly recommend. Thank you for a great trip.
