The Space

This second-story apartment is 800 square feet and has a separate entrance from the owner's home. It is very private and features a gorgeous view, as well as the amenities you have at home, including a fully-equipped kitchen, television, towels, bedding, blow dryer, toiletries, and more. You will have wireless access and internet as well.

Guest Access

You have full access to the apartment and are welcome to fish in the pond (though you will need to bring your own pole) or simply enjoy a hilly stroll around the neighborhood. The deck outside the apartment has a small table and chairs, a small outdoor grill, and offers a beautiful view.

Interaction with Guests

We are more than happy to help you with just about anything you need! Simply text or walk on down around the deck to our front door. We are equally happy to leave you alone if that's what you'd prefer!

The Neighborhood

When we first moved into this neighborhood, we felt like we'd moved into a state park. Trees and wildlife abound! You are likely to see deer up close and personal as well as all types of wildlife that is attracted to water. We have a heron that makes our pond its home.

Getting Around

Guests share our driveway which will easily accommodate one car but can also accommodate 2. We ask that guests park on the right side of the drive, under the overhang. Pull all the way up to the double doors. We are not near public transportation but are a short drive into town, and cab service is available. One main road, County Road 25 takes you from our subdivision straight into Athens, though it's hardly a "straight road." It weaves and curves along a gorgeous route. For those who want to enjoy the night life and would rather not drive into town, Athens has several cab services.

Other Things to Note

We live in the hills and, therefore, guests should set up their cell phones for wireless calling. We do not keep a fully stocked pantry in the apartment but provide guests with a few snacks and a continental breakfast. During summer, our entire house is air conditioned -- including the apartment -- with whole-house AC, but we also provide additional window AC units for guests. In the winter we are typically closed December-February (parents of OU students and others who are repeat visitors need only text and we can open it with a day's notice). The apartment is heated with ceramic wall heaters, but in very cold weather, it is heated with a ventless gas unit. Whether hot or cold outside, our guests are comfortable inside. Check-in is easy! We typically leave the apartment door open when we know a guest is arriving.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.

Place's rules

Guests are welcome to smoke outside on the deck and can have small gatherings, especially if you are visiting friends in the area. This apartment is not set up for large parties. Do not put anything other than toilet paper in the toilet. We use a septic system. Please keep in mind if you have children that our apartment is on the second floor. Although the outside stairway was built with safety in mind, small children will need close adult supervision when going up and down the stairs. We are not responsible for injuries. Finally, please leave the apartment in good condition. I do not have a cleaning crew. I clean the apartment myself; therefore, I ask that guests wash their dishes, place used towels and wash cloths in the laundry basket in the laundry room, wipe out the bathtub if excess products have been used, and see that rubbish is placed in the bins. And ALWAYS turn off the coffee maker. Thank you, in advance, for that:)
