In the few months I’ve been a part of the Community I have to say I’ve really enjoyed checking out your listings, and I’ve seen a few extra details shared in your photos too.
But which part of your listing do you think makes it stand out? Maybe you’ve got a little reading nook which is really cosy, or a sofa which is extra stylish. Perhaps you’ve built your own table which helps make your listing unique, or you’ve upcycled a chair and guests comment on it all the time.
I’m intrigued to know: which part of your listing are you most proud of?
At my apartment in Atlanta, I am most proud that we converted our master bedroom, walk-in closet, and en-suite bathroom into a fully equipped 2 bed, 1 bath apartment with a laundry area. We always called the master bedroom the closet, and I had asked the previous owner why he built that room so large compared to the regular sizes of the other two bedrooms and the bathroom. He didn't give a good answer. The layout was inspired by the apartments that we've seen in Europe, efficient utilization of space.

Oooh great pics @Debra300, very impressive! So you basically created a new apartment out of one large bedroom, and it now works as a standalone unit? Love the way you've got the curtain rail to separate the bed from the living space too.
p.s. those big windows are great, they let in loads of light 👌
I actually made a mistake in my original post when I said that we used to call our master bedroom the closet. We actually used to call it "the apartment", because of it's size. A few months ago I posted pictures of us closing off the doorway between the rest of the house and the apartment, and soundproofing the wall. So, the apartment is totally self-contained with its own entrance and ventilation system. We've stayed in it a couple of times while doing renovations on our house, and it's like being on getaway even if it's just next door.
Ahh I'll have to look up the pics @Debra300 - you guys are so great with the renovations and projects!
Do you always try to stay in your listings from time to time, to get a feel for them?
Yes, we've also stayed in the St. Lucia apartment for a couple of weeks, and it felt like a little vacation. When we do this, we pack a small suitcase, a couple of shopping bags of groceries, and rarely go into our main house.
@Nick, we still haven't been allowed to host international guests. So, I can't tell you what their reaction has been in regards to upgrading the guest suites to studios.
Interesting topic! 😄
My listing is a tinyhouse in my garden - and one thing that my guests seem to enjoy and be pleasantly surprised by, is the sunny, calm, private location. The house is isolated from neighbours and the quiet roads by bushes, trees and my garage, and they have a part big of the garden to themselves. They also seem to think that the house has everything they need, even if it is small .
Hi @Trude0, great to hear from you, and thanks for sharing the pics. It looks very serene, I can understand why guests love it! The garden looks lovely too. Is there a specific part of it or detail that you like best?
