The space

This 1200 square foot open, airy floor plan apartment is completely furnished.

The recently remodeled kitchen is furnished with all you could need to prepare meals at home. There is a refrigerator, gas stove / oven, microwave, a double size farm-style sink, dishwasher, traditional drip coffee maker and a Keurig coffee maker, toaster, electric kettle. Other convenient appliances can be provided on request. Want to make ice cream while you're on vacation, just ask. I own way too many food gadgets to name and you are welcome to use them.

The dining room table can seat up to six. There are placemats / tablecloths for your use.

The comfortable living room has a sofa / loveseat, coffee table, 40" LCD HD TV with a Blu-ray WiFi DVD player (plays Netflix, Pandora, Hulu, Amazon Prime, etc.) and lots of DVDs for your use. There is a desk area for letter writing or laptop use.

High Speed Wireless Internet is provided.

The sunroom is bright with three walls of windows and skylights. It is furnished with a queen size futon, single size futon and a small breakfast table and chairs. It is a very lovely area to relax.

The master bedroom is furnished with a queen size bed. A large closet and two dressers to make yourself at home. All linens are included.

There is a full bath and a half bath. The full bathroom, off the master bedroom, has double sinks, a stand up shower and toilet. The half bath, off the mudroom / laundry room has a toilet and sink.

The laundry room is equipped with a full size washer and dryer.

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. Fresh eggs from our happy hens are also available. (Note (10/2016: Due to Hurricane damage, we have lost our flock to predators. We will start a new brood in the Spring 2017, so no fresh eggs for now).

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.

I believe it a blessing that on my first experience with AirBNB I landed at Cathryn 's house. The area was gorgeous... dappled sunlight in those many trees and beautiful flowers, too. As a host, Cathryn was great... very hospitable and welcoming. She took care of all of our needs and questions in a very timely manner. She has a nice family, too. As for the home, it was quite comfortable, roomy, and we'll equipped. I would stay here again in a heart beat. Anyone that is looking for an all- round nice place to stay should stay with Cathryn.

We loved our municating with Cathryn was fast and easy - her response time was sensational. She was a welcoming and helpful host. The house is lovely - open floor plan, beautiful woods and flowers surrounding, well stocked with everything we needed to cook meals at home, excellent and easy wi-fi, comfortable bed and furnishings - everything exceeded our expectations. Cathryn treated us like extended family - and that is perhaps one of the best things about Airbnb - the opportunity to meet people and share experiences.

Lovely apartment attached to a ranch house on a wooded lot with a backyard, medium sized dog, kids play area, and shared garage and driveway. Quiet road has minimal neighborhood traffic, and is great for a casual 20 minute walk.

The house was close to drive in to Raleigh or Durham or any of the great shopping malls. I loved the country atmosphere. My morning run through the neighborhood was so nice with all the big trees for shade.

Cathryn's apartment made our thanksgiving holiday with our children perfect. The house is close to everything yet secluded and private which was fabulous. The kitchen is well stocked and Everything we needed for cooking our thanksgiving dinner was within our reach. It felt like home. When we arrived we were exhausted and the place provided the peace and quiet and comfort that we needed. The breakfast items were a plus and very much appreciated. If you are looking for a comfortable, quiet and cozy place with the benefits of being in a beautiful country setting this is the place for you. To top it off Cathryn and her family are gracious hosts who will do what it takes to make your stay comfortable.

We loved our three nights here! We came for our anniversary and the house was perfect. Cathryn provided snacks, eggs, and juice. We had everything we needed to make a meal and just relax. The house is about 15 min from Downtown Raleigh which was perfect to go into town when we wanted to but the house was a quiet haven otherwise. Thanks again 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.
