The Space

This private studio apartment is located right on the border of Carrboro and Chapel Hill, just a short walk from the best of both towns. It's a second-floor apartment with its own entrance and an outside security door. It consists of one bed/livingroom with a study space, full bathroom with shower and tub as well as full kitchen.
The apartment has a comfortable full-size bed, a futon which can be folded out into a not-so-comfortable bed, built-in desk, chest of drawers, bistro-style table with two chairs, and Wi-Fi enabled flat screen TV (with free Netflix) and free Wi-Fi. The kitchen space contains an electric range and oven, refrigerator, sink, plates and flatware, and cooking utensils.
This studio apartment is within 10 minute walking distance to UNC-Chapel Hill as well as 5 minute walk to great coffee shops, restaurants, bars, music venues, amenities, and Weaver Street Market.

Guest Access

Guest have access to everything in the apartment. Nothing is shared or off-limits.

Interaction with Guests

I don't live in the same building as the apartment, so I usually maintain contact with guests via phone, text or email. I try to meet guests in person at the beginning of their stay, but on occasion I provide a number code for the door locks and leave a set of keys in the apartment. Guests are free to contact me whenever necessary but I find that there ends up being little contact throughout the stay because the guests usually have everything they need.

The Neighborhood

Most everything you would want during your stay is within walking distance of the apartment.

Getting around

The city bus service is free.

  • Eric was quite prompt in responding to my questions and contacted me several times during my visit to check on how everything was going. The place has a number of amenities to support a comfortable visit for any length of time. Great location and within walking distance to grocery stores, shops, bars, and eateries. Overall wonderful experience. Recommend host and site.

  • I appreciated how accommodating Eric was when we unexpectedly arrived quite late in the evening, due to a rental car mishap. The apartment was very easy to find at night, on a well-lit street, and Eric's directions for how to access the apartment were quite clear and simple. Eric was also very helpful with offering directions and suggestions the next day, and called a couple of times during our stay to check in on us. Eric was kind enough to come by and clean the bathroom for us while we were out, after I noticed it was a bit messy from the prior guest. (This turned out to be an oversight, and he remedied the situation quickly.) There were lovely bottles of Trader Joe's shampoo, conditioner and body wash, as well as liquid soap and lotion, available for use.

    The apartment is very convenient to both Carrboro and Chapel Hill. The bed was quite comfortable, and it was nice to have the extra futon-type couch for my son to sleep in, as well. It was also great to have free onsite parking available. The only slight drawbacks are that the window shades do not block out the very bright light from the streetlights at night, and also...there was a very loud street-cleaner that came down the street, very early one morning. If you are sensitive to either light or noise, you might consider a set of ear plugs and/or a sleep mask.

    We enjoyed our stay, and would certainly stay at Eric's place again when in the area.

  • The apartment was perfect for what we needed that weekend. We weren't there much, but it provided a safe and clean location close to campus.

  • Eric and his studio apartment were both AMAZING! There is no other place I would choose to stay when I come back to the Chapel Hill/Durham/Raleigh area. The place was super comfortable and clean. The location was perfect and I could walk to every amazing place in Chapel Hill and Carrboro including the fantastic co-op market just down the street. Plus parking was easy in the lot for my rental which made it easy to explore afar. Eric couldn't have been a better host. He was great with communication, there was no hitch getting in and he gave me calls and texts just to check in and make sure everything was going alright or if I needed anything. The kitchen had everything I needed and the bed was super comfy. Really one of the best air b&b experience I ever had.
