I am planning on moving back to Atlanta in a few weeks and am not able to go visit before I am stuck trying to find a place to live in only a weekend! I was wondering if any one could give me advice on the Virginia Highlands. I found a few complexes in the area and was wondering if any one had any comments, it would really help me out! Here are the complexes:

Andrew's Court
963 Ponce De Leon Ave

Highland Walk
701 Highland Ave

IF you have any other suggestions I would really appreciate hearing about them! Thanks for any comments your have! Sarah

I live in Gables Rock Springs. Nothing fancy, about 700 a month (cheap for the area). Safe. I like it

I think Highland Walk is in a better location and more cozy than Ponce De Leon even though they are not far from each other. I own two lofts at Studioplex Lofts down the street so I'm in the area on a regular basis. There are alot of great restaurants on the same street & walking distance to Highland Walk Apartments as well as the PATH Trail which is great for jogging, biking or taking a leisurely stroll. It's centrally located with 75/85 and 20 not far as well. I think it's a great choice if you want to be in a great neighborhood with alot of happenings. It's technically not located in VA Hi, It's more like Inman Park/Old 4th Ward.

Something else to consider would be available rental units within some of the older homes in the Highlands. There aren't a ton of apartment complexes there, so that's the way most people go. You can usually find a quaint older home with upgraded appliances. I also used to live at the Gables Rock Springs, which was very nice and safe. It's still technically considered Virginia Highlands, but isn't walking-distance to any of the shops, bars, etc. Depends on what you're looking for...

When I lived in Va/Hi, I lived in a 500 sq foot "retro" apartment that was right in the middle of the neighborhood. On St. Charles and Greenwood Ave., there are several of these smaller, older apartment complexes that rent for $700 and under. The apartments are small, and they don't have a lot of modern amenities (think no washer/dryer, no disposal, some without central air aka window units), but they are affordable and they offer a fantastic location for the price. I'm not sure how you'd find these complexes without driving around the neighborhood and looking for 'for rent' signs, but there are plenty of them. That's how we found ours, and we were within two blocks of Highland Ave and lots of great restaurants, shops, etc. If you can, I'd highly recommend driving the area and looking for places tucked away in the neighborhood.
