About this listing
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/living room 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, Apple TV with free Netflix and HBO Now (Game of Thrones!) 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 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 sometimes meet guests in person at the beginning of their stay, but more often 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.
Most everything you would want during your stay is within walking distance of the apartment.
The city bus service is free.
Please respect the no-smoking and no-pet policy. I'd be happy to discuss small pets, but no cats due to allergy concerns.
There is a common space "gazebo" down stairs where you are free to smoke or use the charcoal grill.
Because of the proximity to local bars, venues and restaurants, there is a lot of foot traffic outside the building at night, especially on weekends, but the noise is not bad with the windows closed. Please respect the neighbors and keep loud noise to a minimum at night. No band practice please!
Bicycles are typically locked in the stairwell, but feel free to store your bicycle(s) inside the apartment.
The television has built-in wi-fi and is set up for free Netflix on an account I provide, as well as other web-based services such as Youtube, (website hidden), Amazon Video (not free) and others. Free wi-fi access is provided as well as Basic Cable.
The kitchen is fairly well stocked with basic cookware, dishes, flatware and a blender. If you have a particular kitchen need that is not provided, I may be able to accommodate you.
Local bus service in Chapel Hill and Carrboro is free.
The place is great, just as it looks in the picture. The location is wonderful -- one can walk to downtown Chapel Hill and Carrboro in just a few minutes! I would definitely go back.
The instructions for how to get into the building, parking etc. were very helpful. The room was very clean when I arrived with a fresh set of towels for me.
Had a great experience. The apartment was clean and had all the amenities I needed. It is very well located near UNC campus, Franklin Street and Carrboro. Had one or two warm days but the AC and fan made things very comfortable.
Eric was very accessible and responsive to a couple quick questions. Great host. I will definitely be back.
Great location within walking distance of lots of shops, dining and UNC. Really a great place to stay and Eric makes it very easy.
Ideal location, easy walk to so much. Comfortable lodging. Plenty of space for two people. Eric had great communication.
Easy, simple, efficient...a good airbnb experience again!
We had another great stay at Eric's apt. Despite the cold weather the room was warm and cozy.
