While staying with us at Garden Suite (Atlanta) - Here are a few things we would like to share with you.
The yard ... feel free to walk about this 1-acre lot (front, back and side). Grab your favorite beverage and do your morning stroll while listening to the birds etc. This long driveway is perfect for doing your 20 - 30 mins walk (if) you don't want to walk the streets. There is also a private patio at the side of your suite where you can sit near the Banana Trees with your favorite beverage. You will find benches strategically placed around the property thus adding to your outdoor activities.
Getting to your suite ... there are 2 ways to get to your suite. You can use the staircase at the left of the house (near the driveway) or you can use the walkway that leads to the right of the house. The non staircase is highly recommended and of course easier.
Parking ... is for 1 vehicle only. In the event you have 2 vehicles, park 1 vehicle in the designated spot for your suite then park the other vehicle on the street near to the front of the yard. Parking is at your own risk (whether on the driveway or on the street).
The neighborhood ... pretty much quiet residential neighborhood. It's great for taking a morning walk, stroll or jog. Should you wish to do so, be sure to walk with a stick or something just in case you run into an unleashed dog. Most walkers walk with a stick. There is a golf club inside your suite (in the closet) that is handy to take with you (should you wish to do so). Some guests also drive up to the beautiful Stone Mountain Park (8 mins away) and join the scores of joggers and walkers.
Restaurants, shopping, library, pharmacy, gas stations etc. nearby ... a 10 mins walk, or a 3 mins drive will take you to 3 different shopping plazas including Hairston Square, Redan Village and Crowe's Crossing.
In Hairston Square, you will find Taste of Jamaica (Jamaican restaurant, our favorite), Dollar General, Walgreen Pharmacy, Waffle House and Los Arcos Mexican Restaurant. In Crowe's Crossing, you will find Kroger's Supermarket, Pappa John Pizza, A1 Wings, WNB Wings and Burgers, Rice China, Popeye's Chicken, Coin Laundry, MacDonalds, Liquor Store. Golden Krust Jamaican Restaurant, Banana Tree Jamaican Restaurant and Wendy's is also near to this plaza.
Redan Village houses Little Ceasar's Pizza, Pizza Hut, Zaxby, Dollar Tree, Family Dollar, Lupitas Mexican Restaurant, Brewster's Ice Cream, Nail Salons and a Night Club.
If you walk out (or) drive out of our driveway and take a left (on Ellis), go down to Redan at the traffic light and make a left. When you get to the corner of Redan and South Hairston area you will see one shopping center on your right. If you cross over Redan and South Hairston, you will see another shopping center on your left and also one on your right.
