This comfortable studio apartment is convenient to downtown, Glenwood South, the Convention Center, NCSU and Red Hat. Two can happily share this sweet space with the screened porch, full kitchen and off-street parking, but there is an extra air bed (and bedding!) included in the studio.

The space

This private garden studio apartment is located across the street from Fletcher Park and features a full-size kitchen with gas stove, microwave, dishwasher, fridge and all the items you need to prepare a meal.

There is 5G wifi and cable television.

Parking for one car (off-street) is included.
The unit is light-filled and calm, and the neighborhood is convenient to downtown Raleigh locations like the Red Hat Amphitheater, Convention Center, Glenwood South and Cameron Village. The queen-size bed sleeps two, and there is a new air bed available (with bedding) if it's needed. The small screened-in porch overlooks a chicken coop and fish pond on the property.

There is a washer/dryer unit in the studio.

The bedroom part of the studio is separated from the main part by a half wall and two columns. There is an open doorway between both areas, but overall the studio is open and spacious feeling. If you need complete privacy in the sleeping area, this studio may not be the best option for you.

The studio is on the ground floor and while it is not officially 'handicap accessible' it may work for you if you have special needs. There are no stairs. The bathroom and bedroom doors are tight for a wheelchair/walker, but the counter and half-wall may provide sufficient support. A relative recuperated from knee replacement surgery in the studio and appreciated the ease of movement! Please message me if you have special needs and I can provide more details.

Nice spot near Cameron Village shopping and downtown. Park directly across the street is quiet and beautiful place to walk.

Truly fantastic place!!! Quiet side street w no traffic, across from a lovely park (great for morning walks and Sunday evening "music in the park"). With Cynthia's info on the shortcut through the high school, the grocery (open 8-9) (as well as shops and restaurants) were only a few blocks away. A 15 minute pleasant walk to NC State Univ where I was working for the week, this place was ideally located! Wonderfully comfortable for just me, but a couple would be equally as comfy and a third could take the fold out no problem. A basketful of toys looked welcoming to kids, and book shelves of tourist books and birding books entertained me. Cynthia was remarkable, even loaned me a charger the first night when I discovered I had forgotten mine. I plan a return work visit this spring and I plan to book this place again.

Cynthia's place was awesome! Everything was so fresh and clean. It's not too far from restaurants and shops. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. Cynthia provided everything we could possibly need. Had a great experience overall!

The place is very comfortable. It's not too over the top with decorations. Very clean and the neighborhood I'd very nice. Quiet, but the people are friendly.

I'm a downtown Raleigh resident with a love of travel, wild places, gardens, big cities and crafts. I spend a lot of time outside, in and around downtown Raleigh, and I love to share my city with visitors. This studio apartment is used by visiting family and friends-and maybe you-to explore the city from a comfortable, convenient spot.

I'm a mom of two and welcome guests traveling with children. Please message me if you have specific needs for your family. I know it can be hard to find the right place when traveling with your brood.

I'm also a retail consultant, craft writer and teacher, You can find me on just about every social media platform @cynthiadeis
