About this listing
Our house is located in the friendly Carolina Pines neighborhood convenient to NCSU's Centennial Campus, Carolina Pines Park, downtown Raleigh and the NC state farmers market. We love meeting new people so come join us for a fun visit to Raleigh!
Our house is located in the cozy Carolina Pines neighborhood which is just 3 miles from all the hip spots in downtown Raleigh, 1.5 miles to the NC farmers market, 3 miles to Centennial Campus and 0.5 miles from Carolina Pines Park. There are a number of bars and restaurants within 3 miles of our house, both in downtown Raleigh and in the areas surrounding NCSU, i.e. Mission Valley, Western Blvd, etc. In general, it is easiest to get around by car, but we often ride our bikes and all of our typical hangouts are easily accessed via bike.
Our house is two-stories with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. We typically rent out our guest bedroom which sleeps two, however if we are out of town, we often rent the other bedrooms as well, so it is possible for us to accommodate up to 4-6 guests. Our guest room has a full-sized bed and a shared bathroom with shower/tub and toilet. We also have an upstairs living/dining room and a downstairs living room, so there is plenty of common space where you can hang out/watch tv/play the wii.
We have a fully stocked and equipped kitchen, including a dishwasher. Other kitchen perks include our aero-press (to brew the perfect cup of coffee), panini press, rice cooker and kitchen-aid mixer if you are looking to really whip up something special during your stay.
We are transplants from California and New York and we love living in Raleigh. Our third roommate is a Siberian husky named Titus. He is super friendly and loves everyone, so it is best our guests are comfortable with dogs. We absolutely love living in the triangle area and love introducing visitors to the awesome local food/beer/music scene in the area.

Interaction with guests
This varies depending on schedule. We are typically pretty busy, but we are happy to orient guests to the neighborhood and chat for a bit. If the stay is over a weekend, we occasionally will invite guests out if we are doing something downtown.
Shoes off in the house and no smoking. Thanks!

I'm a postdoc at the University of Edinburgh and my fiance Brett and I recently moved to Edinburgh. We are active airbnbers and have been guests and hosts both in many places in Europe and the US. We love living in Bruntsfield and love sharing our knowledge (albeit new) of our neighborhood. I'm originally from California, but most recently moved to Edinburgh from North Carolina and love meeting people from all over. In my free time I like to dance, figure skate, do yoga and go running with our huskies Shasta and Titus.
