The Space

I will be in India for one year beginning January 2015. I currently have one room available for airbnb. Karen will greet you upon arrival and you may have the opportunity to meet Lane or Dru whom also live on the home.

Your room is the largest in a 4 bedroom home located in North Durham that is backed by forest preserve and the Eno River. Located 15 minutes from Duke. Back balcony with beautiful view of the preserve and woods and deep front porch with several chairs, swings and fans for hot days.

House is a mix of mid century modern with a bit of traditional thrown in. Room is 12 x 15 with king size bed, two large double closets, private bathroom with double sinks and large tub-children on a short term basis are okay.

Home is situated on a dead end street in North Durham, restaurants, shops and food markets are just a short drive. Plenty of parking is available.

Bus line is approx 2 miles away. If needed, transportation can be arranged to the stop.

Aside from the extensive trails nearby and adjacent to our property along with 2 state parks within 5 minutes.

The natural beauty surrounding the house makes it most unique and though the home was built in 1966 the entire interior was renovated 4 years ago.

Guest Access

Shared kitchen, living room, dining room, den, outdoors and balcony.

Interaction with Guests

I try to be aware of when guests would like to have a glass of wine or cup of coffee and chat or when they need space. I'm okay with either.

The Neighborhood

Quiet, dead end street with river access.

Getting Around

We are not on the bus line, it's probably within 2 miles. Parking is in our drive. If you need assistance getting to and from places we can try and help.

Other Things to Note

My home is a reflection of me, I like guests to feel at home, comfortable to move through the shared spaces, garden, yard, etc. It is a treat for me to meet so many folks.
