Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Staying with Melissa was very comfortable and relaxing! She met us an hour early, showed us the room, and had lovely amenities all set up for us. Her loft apartment is just beautiful, and fully accessible to downtown Durham and all the lovely food and entertainment there. If I return I'd be happy to stay with her again!

  • Another great visit.

  • Melissa's place is wonderful and peaceful. The room I stayed in was perfect for sleeping as it is nice and dark. Melissa is a lovely host. She found the car keys I left behind and was gracious in helping get them back to me.

  • I only have nice words for Melissa and her place. Melissa is a great host and has everything ready for her ghests (personal fridge shelf, personal toilet shelf...everything ready for you to use). She even has coffee, tea and granola for you to use. It's great!
    And what to say about her house...? It's very artistic! With a lot of space and very clean. You have the bus stop very close to her place and you can also walk to Durham Downtown or Duke Campus.
    I had a very nice time! I would totally reccommend it.
