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. Main St is 3 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
It's heard to say enough good things about it, my favorite!! love it!!
Unfortunately we never met Heather or her husband, but their adorable daughter and sitter warmly welcomed us into their home and got us all settled in! The rooms upstairs offered plenty of space for our family of four and provided lots of privacy. Everything was very clean and comfortable, and all set up for our family. Thanks for everything!
Love it! my favorite!!
very warm and welcoming, super clean and comfortable
You can tell that Heather and her husband Nathan have done this many times before. After multiple delays getting to Durham, Heather and Nathan were more than accommodating and understanding. All the reviews I had read about this place was spot on. The room as quiet, clean, and private. But above all else, Nathan and Heather were thoughtful, friendly, and very informational when we had questions about the area.
It was a GREAT stay like usual.
I look forward to it!'
Quiet, clean and relaxing!
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!
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!!!
