Melissa was a great host. Her place is very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The location was perfect for getting to and from Duke via foot or short taxi ride.
Melissa has a well-appointed and comfortable space, perfect location for exploring downtown and accessible to Duke. Though I only stayed two nights, she had cleared shelves in the fridge and bathroom so I felt comfortable using the shared spaces. Thanks Melissa!
Melissa was incredible as a host. Very friendly, interesting and easy to talk to. I felt very welcomed. Her loft is near downtown and has a bunch of interesting art. The room is comfortable and I slept very well. Just know the room has no windows so he sure to set an alarm otherwise you'll oversleep because it is dark in there without lights!
Melissa has a clean and lovely space. The bed was cozy too. She was very easy to communicate and coordinate with and I will definitely stay there again next time I am in Durham!!
Melissa was really nice and welcoming, and the studio is located really close to downtown Durham. The room was clean and everything as listed. Would definitely recommend it!
Melissa's place is gorgeous. Melissa herself was very accommodating and flexible. I would definitely recommend anyone in the Duke/Chapel Hill area check this place out.
