Interaction with Guests
I am always eager to converse with my guests. It is up to the guest how much they want to interact.
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 very close to the interstate so it is very easy to get most places in a short time but I'm far enough away that I don't get any noise from it.
There is ample parking on the street. The ride from the airport is very easy and direct and takes about 10 minutes.
My home is a non-smoking household. Check in after 3pm and check out by noon although alternate times can be accommodated upon request. Please no guests during stay other than confirmed guests. I look forward to welcoming you!
Susan was a most welcoming hostess with easy communication, offering me a key l giving my directions and offering a wonderfully complete and attractive breakfast and setting.
She was respectful of my personal needs and willing to join me as the situation arose.
Susan has a lovely home and made me feel welcomed immediately. The description of her home was accurate and after getting lost in the neighborhood a few times, I found that it was central for most of the activities that I had to attend. Susan provided me with keys and made me feel that I was part of her family. I certainly would stay with her again.
Sweet little spot to stay at. Bed was really comfy. Space was clean and tidy. Upstairs very private-feeling. Susan was welcoming. Overall, a really nice experience.
I enjoyed my stay very much at Susan's home. She is great and made me feel at home. My slight was supposed to arrive at midnight and she was welcoming me. After that I changed my plans at the same arrival date and arrived early and she also was welcoming . she gave me her iron to iron my clothes and offered me to use her washer and drier. She also wake up early everyday at 7 AM to prepare breakfast for me. She made me feel at home to the level that I hate hotels now. The room was spacious and clean with nice bathroom as well. I also was welcomed to use her office room to do some work. I rate my experience 5 stars,
This was my first AirBnB experience and I think I've officially been spoiled. I didn't see Susan much since I was out and about a lot during my weekend stay, but she is SUCH a sweet woman, and Banjo is probably the most docile dog I've ever come across. The house is lovely, and I had the whole upstairs to myself including a bedroom, office with fridge, living room/futon, and gorgeous bathroom with a tub and everything. She also had cute little breakfast setup in the dining room for me each morning. Hopefully, my future AirBnb stays will be able to live up to the standard that she has set...I will definitely be reaching out to her again next time I'm in the Durham/Chapel Hill area.
