Heather and her family (Nathan and Maria) were kind and friendly, they are wonderfull hosts. It's the best place to stay, the neightborhood are very quiet and very safe. The Hester House is close to everything, 10.min from Durham. If you need transportation you can call an Uber or Lyft. The house are beautiful, bed were comfortable, room and private bathroom were immaculately clean. The WIFI was very strong and their cat so fiendly and adorable. I was surprised with the breakfast served in the morning, coffee, cereals, bread, juice, milk, everything you need, a feel like home, was awesome!!!. Like i said, it's my first time using Airbnb in the United States, i am traveling from Puerto Rico and i highly recommend The Hester House to anyone traveling to Durham,NC. Don't think about it, Just Book It!!!. Thank You again Heather, Nathan and Maria; it's a pleasure for me to stay in your house!!! God bless you!!!

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!!!
