This listing is for one bedroom in a 3 bedroom house. The room is sunny with a queen bed and a window overlooking the back yard. The rest of the house includes a large kitchen that you are welcome to use, two outdoor porches, lots of outdoor seating, a nice living room with views of the birds, and a bathroom with washer and dryer.
We have breakfast foods for you - expect coffee, bagels, yogurt, oatmeal, cereal, that sort of thing.
The house is in a quiet neighborhood walking distance to downtown Carrboro - the Carrboro Farmer's market is less than a mile away (and a pretty walk) and Weaver Street Market (our local co-op) and Cat's Cradle are just a mile walk as well. There are several local coffeeshops within walking distance.
Chapel Hill and UNC Campus are easily accessible - a two mile walk or bike or on the free Chapel Hill Transit bus system (the closest bus stop is maybe 100 yards from the house). We have onstreet parking available.
If you need more than one bedroom, our neighbor across the street is also listed on airbnb: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/185497
No smoking indoors please. We'd like you to help us keep the place locked when no one's home. We have two cats, Sydney and Potato, who are indoor/outdoor. There's not really anything you need to do or not do with that information- just so you know!
Will was a good host. Very flexible on arrival time. A quiet and lovely home. Offered us coffee in the morning. Awesome book collection! Charles Portis and P.G. Wodehouse to Stieglitz and Fanon! And the cats were incredibly social. Birdfeeders that resulted in sightings of a cardinal, two blue jays, and a gold finch, as well as a woodpecker.
Hôtes accueillants - nous ont gentiment preté un ordinateur. La chambre est petite mais le lit tres confortable. Du bon café pour le petit déjeuner. Le quartier est calme et nous avons apprécié de pouvoir aller a pied "downtown" Carrboro.
The room was exactly as described (and the bed was really comfortable), the location was convenient, and Lauren was really sweet and easy to work with!
I had an easy and comfortable stay. The room was nice and Lauren was a great hostess.
Had a very short stay but Will was very welcoming and great with communication. Comfy bed!
Lauren and Will have a lovely home. The room was comfortable and clean. Nice home decorations and style. While our paths crossed for most of our time there, the few minutes we talked to Will, he was very pleasant and hospitable.
Lauren and Will's place was exactly what we needed. We decided to stay in Carrborro last minute while passing through town. They were very quick to respond and welcoming.
We only wish we could have stayed longer in order to enjoy all the amenities that they had to offer--backyard common area, bikes, etc.
Whenever we need to catch a good night's sleep in Carrboro again, we will be coming here!
We are Lauren and Will. We really enjoyed staying with people on Airbnb while travelling in Europe earlier this year and decided we wanted to open up our spare room to guests. We are both from the Carrboro/Chapel Hill area and can give a lot of recommendations of things to do while you are here.
We enjoy biking (mountain and road), running, and hiking and can point you toward great places to do all of these in walking distance of our house.
