The apartment is located on the same property as my home on almost two acres of trees. However, the apartment is very private and secluded with its own driveway, private patio area and separate parking. We have an herb garden that you may utilize. And during the summer a vegetable garden that we're very inclined to share, especially when there is a bumper crop. Fresh eggs from our happy hens are also available
We are located 5 miles outside the Raleigh city limits, 10 miles from downtown Raleigh , 10 miles from NCSU and 20 miles to the airport. We are south of Raleigh about 7 miles from I-40/440. Only 15 minutes from the attractions of downtown Raleigh (Duke Energy Center, Convention Center, Raleigh Memorial Auditorium, Raleigh Civic Center, Red Hat Amphitheater). Many local sports teams, such as Carolina Hurricanes, Durham Bulls, Carolina Mudcats, aren't too far away. Eagle Ridge Golf Course is across the street from our neighborhood.
Within three miles, there are three different shopping areas with groceries, coffee shops, department stores. We are happy to provide maps and suggestions for leisure activities.
No Smoking. If you are a smoker, I will be happy to show you where on the property you can smoke and will even provide you an ashtray!
For stays longer than a week the utilities (electric and propane) are not included in the price. You only pay for your actual usage. The meters are read when you move in and when you move out and calculated immediately. The apartment is energy efficient.
We loved our stay at Catherine's place!! She and her family are so warm and friendly, and the property is spacious and comfortable. She has done a fantastic job of anticipating her guests' every need and equipping the apartment with all the amenities of home. And a great location a 15-20 minute drive from downtown. Have no hesitations if you're considering a stay!
We had a fantastic stay!
Cathryn meet us late at night and helped us get settled. She was the perfect host with many extra amenities. The apartment was just as it was listed plus fresh eggs, orange juice and english muffins. The apartment is in a quiet, beautiful setting. Thank you to Cathryn and her great family.
This was our first time in Raleigh and Cathryn's place was a perfect home to stay in. We found foodstuff in the frig for breakfast and the house was clean, well furnished, in a beautiful outdoor setting, and in a nice neighborhood. Cathryn met us when we arrived and she was friendly and accommodating. I knew right away that we had made the right choice since we will be traveling to Raleigh many times this year and next. It was important for us to find a comfortable place that is quiet yet close enough for us to drive to the companies in Raleigh that we will be training. And we found it. Thanks Cathryn.
Cathryn and her husband were perfect hosts. Their place is quite lovely, just the right size for a family of four. It was clean and had helpful amenities, such as towels, dish detergent and laundry detergent. It is located in a beautiful country neighborhood, perfect for morning walks. Cathryn left breakfast foods for us, including fresh eggs laid by her chickens. All in all, it was a lovely place to stay!
Everything was as described and I enjoyed my stay. Cathryn is easy to deal with and I look forward to staying with her again sometime in the future.
Absolutely perfect. Quiet, convenient and plenty of room. Beautiful space, just like the pictures, comfy beds and couches, excellent kitchen with everything you need for a perfect stay. Cathy was awesome, very responsive, she even stayed up late to check us in and show us around ( we arrived very late, after 1 am) she was exceptionally gracious. She had fresh eggs for us, english muffins, milk, butter, and snacks, so very thoughtful. The location was perfect, just a 15 minute drive to downtown Raleigh. I would definitely stay here again.
About the Host, Cathryn
I love having the apartment. It's like owning a bed and breakfast, only I don't serve breakfast and it's much more than a bed. :) I get excited when we have new guests, it's wonderful to meet new people...however, we respect the fact that our guests have their own lives and need for privacy, as do we.
