Guest Access

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.

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

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.

Other Things to Note

*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." (Note: The voice connect option only appears when using a web browser on a PC or Mac... not on airbnb's mobile apps.)
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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Vicky and Alan are the consummate hosts! From the start, they welcomed us and took the time to include thoughtful touches during our stay, such as fruit for breakfast and a welcome sign in the guest room. I only wish we'd had more time to get to know them! We especially enjoyed their garden and the trails near their home. It was a beautiful, convenient space, and we hope to stay there again in the future if we can.

  • Dear Alan and Vicky,before I arrived your house,I haven't expected you make such a neat ,sweat home for (website hidden) husband and I really love your house.You really put so many efforts in this guest house.If my daughter can get in UNC or Duke,your house will surely be the first house that I want to rent for a long time.

    Keep in touch and please do come to China once you are a bit free.

  • Gracious Greenwood (email hidden) to stay. Our family of three spent a wonderful two days/nights there. The two-bedroom suite is very roomy and offers many special touches. The neighborhood is a beautiful wooded setting right in the city. The area also is a runner's & walkers paradise with wooded trails and gorgeous neighborhoods accessible. Alan and Vicky were very kind, helpful and gracious hosts.

  • Great place - everything was as represented. Alan was quite responsive to our needs. The place was clean, spacious and quiet. I was a little concerned since there is no tv and the World Cup was on, but it forced us to find alternative places to see some of the games which was much more fun than watching alone. The wonderful radio with remote control provided music, news and info whenever we were in the room. And, the bed side reading lamps were great - a personal favorite little touch!

  • Lovely!

  • Superb!

  • Vicky and Allen were attentive and helpful hosts. I felt at ease with them right away. The space is private, nicely decorated and comfortable. Their home is located in a very peaceful neighborhood of Chapel Hill. They make an extra effort of making sure their guests are comfortable from providing a favorite item for breakfast to letting this guest use their pool membership for a session of lap swimming. When I am back in
    the area I will absolutely return to their Greenwood bedroom suite.

  • SUPERB! All of it - the service, apartment, cleanliness, amenities, flexibility, value, hospitality, thoughtfulness - all simply over the top. We are in the vacation rental business, have 3 properties of our own and 12 others that we manage, we are very particular about our properties. Alan and Victoria are even more particular, we were very impressed. We will be back and would highly recommend a stay.

    The location is close enough to Chapel Hill to be convenient, but far enough away from the noise. Can walk to the college nature trail for a morning run. The house is surrounded by foliage and wildlife which we loved, the bird feeder outside our bedroom window was a source of great entertainment. Lots of privacy with a private entrance and a private driveway. It's a two bedroom, we needed only one and were charged accordingly - this was a great value. Little things were supplied that we much appreciated, such as a magnifying mirror in the restroom, shampoos, breakfast foods (they asked what we wanted!), coffee, creamers, body lotion, even pins. Great decor, great queen bed with nice linens and immaculately maintained.

    Loved it, 'nuff said. Book it :)

  • Our stay with Vicky & Alan was perfect. The suite is spacious and had everything we needed. We loved all the special touches. Although we did not have an opportunity to get to know them better, we would highly recommend them as hosts.
