About This Listing
View of the pool house from the main house... the trees are so thick this year, it's hard to even see the pool.
Great Pool House in Chapel Hill, just seven miles from UNC and 15 miles from DUKE. 1,100 sf; 1 Bedroom with Queen Bed, large living room with large screen TV, Security System, pool from May to Sept, Great for Graduations, Parent's Weekends, BBall & Football weekends. Kitchen with Microwave, Dishwasher, Fridge, and grill outside.
Beautiful park-like setting, on five acres. Very private, and peaceful. Beautiful nature, and birds, hard to believe we are only five miles from town! We also have full court basketball. You won't find anything like it in Chapel Hill.
Guests have access to just about everything they may need.
We will meet guests upon arrival and make sure they have everything they need. During summer, our family will still use the pool during rental periods, but pool house will be entirely for rental guests. We will provide a key and separate code to the security system.
A little bit country... we are directly across the street from a charming country church in a country setting, so be prepared for nature and serenity. If you have an aversion to using filtered well water, and experiencing nature outside to include deer, bat and fox sightings, just to name a few, then our home is not for you. But if you enjoy nature, and serenity, and want to get away with easy access to the amenities of town, then ours is a perfect stop for you.
We are just outside city limits of Chapel Hill, and only 3 miles from the center of Carrboro.
You really need a car to get around; however, there is ample parking at the house.
The pool house is equipped with Direct TV, WIFI, Security system, full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, washer/dryer, full bathroom, granite countertops, small convection over, coffee maker, microwave, grill, two tvs. We have one queen bed in the bedroom, additional sleeping available on air mattress and sofa.

Same view of the pool house from the main house... we are lucky if we get one good snow covering per year!
Really nice place, and very large. Pool was really nice and clean too. Very wooded setting, can't really see the neighbors. My only complaint is that the Wifi was really bad to the point of being unusable, though I imagine the host could fix this without too much trouble.
What a great find!! We came to Chapel Hill for our son's graduation, and could not have been happier with a "home away from home" rather that staying in very crowded hotels!! Leah was a great host, and the accommodations were just what we needed. We will be back when visiting Chapel Hill again! Thanks so much Leah!
As advertised with no issues. The space is large and nicely furnished. The only thing I would have changed would be that the water is all from a well. The notes mention "filtered water", I did not put it together until I saw the brown water.
The time of year we were there turns out to be probably the worst time to be in the woods that surround the property. TONS of yellow pollen on everything (not something host can control for sure, but just a "good to know" for future guests). Also pool was still covered, so no way to enjoy the pool or surroundings with all the pollen.
We've just arrived home from our visit to a Chapel Hill, and must say that Leah and her family made our homecoming memorable.
The property was more attractive than advertised and our children loved the pool, the basketball and all of the outdoor fun-especially the dragon flies!
My wife and I were very relaxed and enjoyed every inch of the pool house. There was ample room and plenty of privacy. We loved all of the trees.
It was just what we needed for our family. We plan to make it back in the fall!
