Interaction with guests

I am always eager to socialize with my guests or give my guests their space. It is up to the guest how much they want to interact.

The neighborhood

I love that my neighborhood is very quiet. There are no children nearby or dogs out in the yard barking. It is very safe and peaceful and friendly! I live 4 minutes from the interstate so it is very easy to get to most places in a short time but I'm far enough away that I don't get any noise from it.

Getting around

There is ample parking on the street. The ride from the airport is very easy and direct and takes about 10 minutes.

An absolute perfect 10. A wonderful host and a beautiful home - who could ask for more? The bedroom was gorgeous and the bed was so comfortable! The bedding was the quality of a 5 star hotel. If you are in the Raleigh/Durham area, this is a must stay! And to add to the beautiful surroundings, Banjo the puppy is as cute as it gets! Great stay! Highly recommend.

Susan is an excellent host. It was my parents first time using airbnb and they were a bit nervous, but with Mrs. Susan's excellent hospitality they had a great first experience. Susan's home is quite cozy and loved the interior décor and design. She had breakfast ready for my parents and would try to time it so she could have it ready. We arrived way later than expected and she was very gracious when it would have been reasonable for her to be upset. We really appreciated her patience and grace. Would definitely recommend this place!

My girlfriend and I had a lovely stay at Susan's home. She was sweet and communicative and we felt warmly welcomed. The location is a bit removed from Durham's downtown area but easily accessible with a car or Uber. Our room, the bathroom, and study were clean and offered great privacy. Susan left us a healthy breakfast every morning and was so accommodating to all our needs. And as a bonus, her dog Banjo was always down to play. Thanks Susan!

Response from Susan:
Thanks Daniel! It was great hosting you and Janou. Although we are about a 10-15 minute drive to downtown Durham, my guest do enjoy that I am central to so many areas such as the airport, UNC, Duke and RTP. Do come and stay with me again when you are in the area!

I love to travel and have had the privilege of visiting many European, Asian and Scandinavian countries and even went to Guam!

I enjoy live Broadway musicals, singing in my church choir, love good food and red wine (especially Italian food), enjoy reading books that help me with my personal growth and my passion is my business which is selling high fashion jewelry at home shows!

I'm an easy going person who loves people and new experiences and Airbnb has been an amazing one!
