Interaction with Guests
We love Durham and are available for any local questions/directions/suggestions. We are family friendly. :)
We love our neighborhood because it feels like we're "away" but we're only 10 minutes from the bustle of fun downtown Durham activities. Duke's East Campus is 6 miles.
We are not near public transportation. Our guests either use a taxi or have a vehicle of their own.
No smoking in the house please
This was the first time ever staying in a BnB and the first time using airbnb. The whole process was easier than booking a hotel. I chose the Hester family BnB, because of the other wonderful reviews and the fact that they are very close to downtown Durham. I will say, I was NOT disappointed. The stay was everything it had been described. The Hester family was extremely welcoming and inviting. It felt like I was staying at relatives house and not a stranger's house. I will be in Durham on a weekly basis and would like to make the Hester House a regular home away from home.
As soon as my boyfriend and I entered Heather and Nathan's neighborhood, I know we would love our stay in Durham. It was very safe and quiet. Very close to downtown and all the good stuff! Their listing was accurate; the room was incredibly clean and also the amenities and toiletries. They are very welcoming and good people! Thanks a bunch for opening your place to us :) WE REALLY ENJOYED IT!
The Hesters are great hosts, very warm and personable. Helpful with any needs you may have! I stay there often and enjoy it more every time!
We asked the Hesters to book at the last moment, and they accepted us. Little did we know that it would be one of the best stays of our lives! Everyone was so nice. We got to explore Durham feeling refreshed, happy, well-fed, and stimulated by good conversation. Thanks so much, Hesters!
My time with the Hesters was great. They waited up on me, even with a flight delay and made me feel at home immediately. They were good to invite me into chat, but still gave me space to rest when needed. On the last day, Nathan cooked an awesome breakfast and there was even an Independent in front of my door. Was so good to have a home away from home.
Wonderful like always! I feel spoiled!
We loved our stay with the Hester family in Durham! It was my first time using Airbnb, and I was very impressed. It was nice to return to a home rather than a hotel room while traveling. We immediately felt welcome in their home, but also had ample privacy in the upstairs bedrooms. Be sure to ask them for restaurant and bar recommendations; they have many!
We are excited about offering a wonderfully, comfortable stay here in Durham. If you're looking for privacy, then most of the second floor is at your disposal, plus a private living room downstairs.
We love music, food, movies, and to travel!!!
