You will have your own entrance and your privacy will always be respected. Just let us know how we can help you become more familiar with the university, hospital, botanical gardens, local shopping and restaurants.
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.
We are in the beautiful Greenwood neighborhood bordering UNC woodland trails. We love the convenience of being walking distance (or short ride) to the UNC campus and hospital, while still feeling that we live in the country. We have lots of trees, flowers, birds, butterflies, deer... and friendly neighbors.
The Chapel Hill Transit bus system is free. It's about a two-minute walk to bus stops, with easy access to the university, UNC Heath Care and major shopping/restaurant areas. A food store and drugstore are a ten-minute walk away.
*BEFORE BOOKING: We prefer having a phone conversation with prospective guests before accepting a reservation.
Here is how to make that happen:
First, make sure you have "verified" your phone number with Airbnb (you only have to do this once). BEFORE you make an inquiry for our listing, select the option that allows us to initiate a call to you via "Voice Connect."
Voice Connect allows a phone call without revealing any personal contact information. For us to be able to call you with Voice Connect, you must choose “Yes” when asked if we (the host) can call you about the reservation. This option is presented when contacting a host for the first time. Calls can only be placed between 9 AM and 9 PM.
How it works:
•First AirBnB calls our phone, then they call you to connect us.
•Neither of us will see any personal contact information.
•This call will be recorded by AirBnB for the security and protection of all parties involved.
Looking forward to speaking with you.
This was my first Airbnb experience and it exceeded my expectations. From the opportunity to get to know the hosts prior by phone I was looking forward to meeting them and felt as though I had a home away from home. The amenities were all there as described, but their extra attention and helpfulness were a nice surprise and made my stay extra comfortable. I was disappointed that the weather cleared up and I didn't have to stay an extra night. I said I would look for an opportunity to return and actually found a reason within 10 minutes of leaving ! I already have recommended Gracious Greenwood to others . Thank you.
We had a LOVELY visit with Alan and Victoria. Their place was perfect for us. Our daughter is a student at UNC and it was very close to her and all the things we do while we are in Chapel Hill. Every little detail was covered. The coffee was wonderful and there was a mini kitchen that was perfect. The rooms were a really nice size and very clean and bright, just wonderful. We go to Chapel Hill often and hope to stay with them every time we go. The room also has a separate entrance and driveway. Which was nice because we came in late both night we were there. I really can't think of a single thing they could add.
Vicky & Alan were very attentive and responsive to booking my reservation. Unfortunately I had to cancel due to illness and death in the family. airbnb was horrible to communicate with. I have emailed several times to get a refund for my reservation and NEVER got any response. This was my first time using airbnb and it was not a good experience with the company.
Excellent host excellent place!
This place was absolutely wonderful. Vicky and Alan think of everything. The space is clean, sunny, private, and very cute.
The most important thing for me when looking for a place to stay is allergies. I am allergic to a lot of detergents/soaps/lotions and Vicky and Alan made sure the space was livable for me. The sheets/soaps/air were all perfect and clean, and didn't trigger my allergies. They even bought us unscented toiletries! (Which happened to be the brand I use at home!)
The bathroom is large, and there is plenty of hot water. I shared the space with 3 girlfriends, and we had no trouble sharing the space, or the shower.
They outdid themselves on snacks, and accommodations. Wifi worked perfectly, we each had a key, and check-in and check-out was simple. The coffee was AWESOME.
Anytime I am in the area, I hope Vicky and Alan have an opening!
Very Gracious and sweet hosts! Great location!
Many thanks to Vicky and Alan for making our weekend stay so comfortable and easy. Gracious Greenwood is absolutely fantastic. Spacious and so accommodating! Fresh flowers, a well stocked mini kitchen, breakfast treats, good coffee and a very warm and comfortable bed. Great stay with such kind hosts. Thank you
The Greenwood Suite is a lovely place to stay, tranquil, pretty and a home-from-home. It has its own private entrance so you can come and go as you please. I did not have a car and it was easy to walk into town, either along the road or through a lovely pine wood. The accommodation is beautifully presented with little extra things like fresh flowers and a pre-stocked fridge (with breakfast items that I requested). Victoria and Alan were extremely welcoming and helpful to me (I was travelling alone) which made a big difference to my few days holiday. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Alan and Victoria were top notch hosts! We were there for the weekend on business/pleasure and they made us feel totally at home, so much so that we didn't want to leave!
They have incredible attention to detail with luxurious amenities like bed warmers!
They even asked us for our coffee preferences which they provided precisely. Their home is in a lovely woodsy area. Super quaint and beautiful. Close to everything.
Exquisite lodging, stellar service – Alan and Victoria provide the perfect solution for those seeking a comfortable stay in Chapel Hill. Alan could not have been more courteous. And his insistence on providing fresh coffee in the room was most appreciated. Thanks for everything!
