A warm welcome!
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 Principal 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.
Your room (and bath) is the only room in the private loft area upstairs so you can really retire into a spacious, quite, private area after a hard day's work.
Our home, built brand new in Jan 2014, is in a safe and upscale neighborhood right in the heart of the Southpoint area. The big neighborhood mall is a mile away. You could also buy your groceries, catch a late night movie, dine at one of the many restaurants or catch a late night dessert at Cheesecake factory.
The next day burn those calories by taking our bicycle(s) for a ride along the beautiful tobacco trail or swimming a few laps at the pool.
There is ample parking for those with their own cars. There are 3 bus stops within 1.5 miles of the house. Both Duke and UNC are a 15 mins drive and RTP is under 10 mins.
P.S: WE PREFER TO HOST FOR A MINIMUM OF TWO NIGHT STAYS.
Our guests will have full access to the following amenities:
1) Full use of kitchen, living area
3) Free Wireless Internet Access
4) Glass-top work desk & chair with a powerful Mac machine.
5) Clean sheets, clean towel, soap, shampoo, hair dryer.
6) Breakfast (bread, fruits, energy bars, eggs, yogurt) & Coffee/Tea.
7) Easy run/bike trail access
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as they like. We are very adaptable.
Proximity to both largest mall in NC and natural walking/biking trails. Importantly, it's 1.5 miles from the main highway, conveniently connecting it with Chapel Hill, Durham, and Raleigh.
Its best if you have a car. You can get around on buses but timings are not very convenient and they don't run on Sundays.
We are flexible and accommodating. Good attitude and good company is what we seek. The primary purpose of listing our house here is to meet folks from around the world.
We understand that you have busy schedules and hence our check-in and check-out times are very flexible. As long as you give us a heads-up, we can work around your schedule. On weekdays though, we prefer our guests to check-in after office hours (~6PM).
We will give you your own key the very first time we meet. Please feel free to use crockery, cutlery, pots & pans in the kitchen. Please also feel free to use the entertainment center - we have PS3, basic cable and NetFlix.
If you have any special needs please let us know and we can surely try to accommodate them within reason. We hope your stay with us will be very comfortable.
Hope to meet you soon!
I had a really nice stay, bed was super comfortable, the room was really beautiful, and clean. Amar and his wife were friendly and great hosts. The area is perfect, very close to RTP. I totally recommend staying here. :)
Hosts with great conversation, warm welcoming on one of the coldest nights of winter for Durham. Lovely aesthetic for a restful nights sleep.
my stay at here was very comfortable. They made me feel right at home, respected my privacy and was very catering. Anything you need they will try to accommodate you the best they can. Wouldn't mind staying here again!
Another pleasant stay. Clean, quiet, comfortable with good location. Timely accommodation
Very pleasant couple in a quiet neighborhood. Very fast acknowledgement of my lodging request.
The house is awesome, really big and clean. There's so much you get provided with so you won't be bored. Amar is a top bloke, super kind and willing to help you out. Always goods for a chat about travelling and other stuff.
Amar was an excellent host, friendly and knowledgeable. The space was as described on the listing - the room is fairly big and the bed was very comfortable. The room was clean and had a private bathroom (both upstairs). The house is in a nice neighborhood close (5 mins) to Southpoint mall, and also not far from CH or Raleigh.
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend.
