The Space

If you are the budget traveler looking for the comfort of home away from home, you have stumbled upon the perfect place!

We are a friendly young couple with whom you will experience the charm of Indian hospitality. I am Amar and I work at the Duke Hospitals as a Research Faculty. My wife Bithika works at Cisco, RTP as a Product Architect. We are cavers, world travelers, theater enthusiasts, entrepreneurs and experimental chefs. As our guest(s), we welcome you to an exchange of experiences & stories over libations in our cozy living room where we hang out after work.

But of course, if you are the private kind we do respect that. With an artfully decorated room-with-a-view, your own private bath, a comfortable bed, a small library of books, a glass-top work desk & comfy chair, a powerful mac desktop and fast internet, we hope you will be able to accomplish whatever it is that you have set out to accomplish.

We are a safe neighborhood inside a gated community, right in the heart of the Southpoint area. You can walk to the big neighborhood mall, buy your groceries, catch a late night movie, dine at one of the many restaurants or just walk to Cheesecake factory for a decadent dessert at 11 PM.

The next day burn those calories by taking our bicycle(s) for a ride along the beautiful tobacco trail, swimming a few laps at the pool or simply hitting the 24 hr on-site fitness center.

There is ample parking for those with their own cars, and 3 public bus stops within walking distance. Both Duke and UNC are a 15 mins drive and RTP is under 10 mins.

To recap, our guests will have full access to the following amenities:
1) Full use of kitchen.
2) Laundry
3) 24 hr Fitness Center & Billiards Room in the Club House.
4) Free Wireless Internet Access
5) Glass-top work desk & chair with a powerful Mac machine.
6) Clean sheets, clean towel & soap.
7) Breakfast & Coffee/Tea.

  • Beautiful home and a great host. Amar was very hospitable and courteous. We spent many evenings discussing his work and life which fascinated me. Would love to spend time again if I'm in the area.

  • I've stayed with Amar and Bathica twice while in town on business and both have gone very well. Plenty of opportunity to set and talk or stay in your suite when you have a need for privacy.

    Easy access to the highway and I-40, so getting around the Durham/Chapel Hill/Raleigh area is quite simple. There is a nice upscale mall and other shopping within an easy stroll from the apartment. I didn't use the public transportation system, but access is next to the development.

    They've been in the area for a long time and have lots of suggestions for eating and activities. I'd easily recommend staying with them when you come to the area.

  • Amar is a very friendly host, and his house is very well-kept and beautiful. The room is very spacious and clean - just the way I like it. The housing community where the apartment building is located is safe and right next to the Southpoint Mall, which is apparently the largest mall in the Raleigh-Durham area. Overall, it was a great stay in a convenient location for an affordable price with a friendly host!

  • Amar was a superb host - even met me out at dinner to hand me over the keys as he was going to be late getting home. Very comfortable stay in an immaculately clean home. Enjoyed meeting Amar and trading stories from India.

  • I wish I had more time to spend with Amar and Bithika. Sunday dinner with friends . . . what a great time!

    Very close to Duke Integrative Medicine and right across the street from the Mall. More stores and restaurants than you could ever want.

  • Got there late on the weekend but did not feel I was inconveniencing them. Had some hot tea and some good conversation for a few hours. Very friendly hosts.

    Location is great, place is clean and easy to get to. Definitely worth the price.
