Interaction with guests

We want your stay to be personalized and memorable. Are there any snacks/supplies you would like us to purchase for you before you arrive? What kind of morning pastries do you prefer? Because Alan loves his coffee, he can provide several different types of coffee & coffee-makers.

This is a really special place. Alan and Vicky are the most 'gracious'! hosts we've encountered using Airbnb. Relaxing, clean and a quiet area of town but close enough to the Chapel Hill action. Magnificent coffee. The place itself is adorable and super well equipped. Can't wait to come back.

The Gracious Greenwood was a perfect little retreat. Vicky and Alan have really thought about everything when it comes to providing the best possible stay at their beautiful home. We were only there for one night but wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you for being such gracious hosts!

Alan and Vicky's house, otherwise known as Gracious Greenwood is a delight. We are new to AirBnB and we never expected to find such caring, loving, and considerate hosts. Everything about the house is exquisite. Close enough todowntown and the campus that you can enjoy a walk there, and yet secluded in a private neighborhood that is both charming and quiet. We went to bed to a deer in the front yard and woke up to 3 deers grazing in the backyard. The guest accommodation is completely private, and though it is attached to the house, the hosts created a white noise and isolation system that prevents any noise from conducting between the guest vs host living space. Alan (Vicky was away) took over 30 mns of his day to welcome us and show us in details how everything worked and how to make us most comfortable. Everything has been thought out in details, including a fridge filled with your favorite morning hoodies and a filtered fresh water tank in the bathroom. There are more coffee and tea options that you can imagine, and an advanced coffee system to make any coffee lover smile. The light in the room is magnificent, and Alan and Vicky have thoughtfully placed bird feeders in front of one of the windows attracting beautiful birds and squirrels who come and enjoy the free food. There is a fig tree as you exit the guest house and we enjoyed two ripe figs as we headed home. We had never been treated with this much care, and it was better than staying in any high end hotel we have been too. Alan and Vicky's love and care transpire in everything in the house, their messaging, their welcome, the flowers in the room and bathroom, and their beautiful garden. Alan greeted us when we arrived, offered to carry our luggage and was just a delight. We are so grateful and touched by your caring and we would come and stay at Gracious Greenwood if we visit again. Thank you so much for everything.

We were traveling with my dog to have major surgery at NC State, which was very stressful and emotional (he's doing great now). It was so helpful to stay in such a beautiful home with so many comforts. I especially enjoyed the beautiful garden and watching the birds and chipmunks. Because we were there for several days, the mini kitchenette really came in handy. It was great to be able to make a good cup of coffee instead of having to search out a coffee shop on my commute. They even made sure to have my preferred creamer and sugar. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood but it is also just a few minutes from the Chapel Hill campus where we found lots of nice restaurants and shops. Vicky and Alan really thought of everything you could possibly need in the room. Hope to visit again under more pleasant circumstances!

My family was in Chapel Hill for sports camps for a couple of our boys. Vicky and Alan's place was just perfect. The garden and yard were beautiful, the rooms themselves were very attractive, and UNC's campus is a short walk away. We'd definitely return again.

Victoria & Alan User ProfileVictoria & Alan is a superhost.

Vicky was born and raised in North Carolina. For forty years she guided the development of Chapel Hill's first and largest recreational soccer program. Her love of flowers at home and at work at Whole Foods helps keeps her happy. Vicky's license plate reads, "GR@I2UDE." She is grateful for her life in Chapel Hill… and most everything.

Alan was born in Chicago and lived in Arizona, Hawaii and Norway. He was a Cruise Director and Director of Entertainment for major cruise lines after a successful singing career that included stage, TV, concerts and recording. After retiring to Chapel Hill, Alan began volunteering at UNC Hospitals singing for patients, with a special interest in bringing music to children. Most recently, Alan was asked to join the Guest Services Team at UNC Health Care, guitar and all.

Two of our favorite films are "Love Actually" and "The Intouchables."
