Modest and clean accommodations in a 4BR 2.5 bathroom home.
The beige bedroom (shown) is ideal for one, but can accommodate 2 persons for a short-term stay. The closet (not shown) is about 4 feet wide.
The room is has been updated with a new, queen size bed. A padded headboard is being created. Louis Phillipe style matching nightstands flank the bed. A smaller, Ethan Allen chest of drawers is provided. The flooring upstairs is reclaimed beech hardwood.
This is on of three bedrooms share a clean bathroom with tub shower combo, vinyl plank flooring, new spiffy shower head, newer dual flush toilet, new bathroom fan and an updated vanity. Washer and washer and dryer access is on the second floor in the same shared bathroom.
The "powder room" (half bath) is downstairs.
High-speed WIFI is very much available. The WIFI ID and password are available on a sheet located in your room. I don't subscribe to cable or satellite services.; However, I do have a ROKU box for shared use.
The queen mattress has a firmer feel to it. Upon request, a mattress topper can be provided.
The home has three rescue canine pets: a very friendly Belgian Sheep dog (a Groenendael mixture) boy, a more reserved German Shepherd girl (although some folks she takes right to) and a friendly cuddle-some-all-love Australian Shepherd (Pilots and Paws rescue). There is also lovely calico cat. The calico cat is mainly outdoors, but treks inside during thunderstorms and very cold weather. She then naps in a unused room.
Well-behaved dogs and cats are considered for stay-overs. All animals must have shot records available and up-to-date on vaccinations (or titer tested), including Bortadella (kennel cough_ Note that cats need to remain in the room as my German Shepherds are very curious about cats and wants to "play" although cats are too little for her. I also currently have a foster GSD who is cat-fascinated rather than cat-friendly,
I keep extra food, Blue Buffalo or Kirkland (any food rated 4 plus), and water bowls for visiting dogs. A medium and large sized crate are each available on premises. I have low fenced backyard for a space for "necessities." A dog park is located with 1.5 mile of the house and is convenient to reach on foot (or paw).
This home is within 1 mile of a grocery store and restaurants, including Chipotle, Jersey Mikes, Penn Station Subs, and Starbucks along with other local restaurant establishments. White table restaurants are also close by. There are a multitude of good places to eat around the Triangle area. Trader Joes is within 4 miles and Whole Foods is an easy drive less than 5 miles from the house.
Access to major traveling interstate roads is within 3 miles both east and west. Local hospitals are within 4 (website hidden) State is within approx 7 miles. Whole Foods is about 5 miles away. Fresh Market grocery about 1.2 miles and the local 24-hour Harris Teeter grocery store is within 1 mile. Several major shopping malls are within 5 miles.
Share a good cup of coffee or tea and relax downstairs in the family or living room. Enjoy quiet within the city. At night, generally we hear crickets and frogs and only a small bit of city noise.
High speed WIFI and Vonage phone service are available. Fax and and printing are available. This home is an ideal location if you are looking for an affordable, basic, comfortable, quiet and safe place to stay with a clean bed, clean bathroom, and a considerate, appreciative host.
My goal is to provide you with a space where you arrive, put your things away and within 30 minutes you know where the essentials are -- just as if it was your long-term home. :).
I keep two fridges for food storage. The kitchen is equipped with a KitchenAid Artisan II stove, a Bosch dishwasher and an LG fridge with filtered water and ice. Small appliances include: a larger toaster/convection oven, rice cookers, slow cookers, hotpot (for pressed tea and coffee) and more. A Tassimo hot beverage maker is also available.
Dishes and glassware are readily available. However, you can always bring your favorite mug, and we'll know that it's *your* mug. :)
In the event that you are a lady booking a space, I try to arrange for your use of the very separately located master bathroom. However, the bathroom and bedroom doors securely lock.
Upon booking, I will contact you by phone. I request that you confirm your arrival and estimate your time of arrival on the day of your reservation. Doing so enables me to squeeze in my errands--including those for the home. I also request that you call or text me about 30 minutes prior to your arrival in case I am out on errands.
Please see the house rules as they are important.
Note: I also use AirBNB for home stays, so I understand the challenges and uncertainties around scheduling a home-stay. I'll do my best to make sure your stay is relaxing and comfortable. Let me know if you have special needs for fragrance-free sheets, will be arriving late, need some groceries in the fridge ahead of time, need a flexible checkout time, etc.
Reasons why I host?
I enjoy meeting people. I aim to keep my prices modest to keep to the spirit of AirBNB and to pay forward and pay back kindnesses my son and I have received in 13 years of hockey travels. I hope to exceed the value you are expecting for the price, so I do ask that you keep your expectations modest. . Know that I am grateful for your booking. These funds are helping me maintain the house and support my son's hockey and educational goals. Thank you, very much!
With gratitude, thank you for considering my location.
Patsy is a very dedicated and kind host. She has done an amazing job of perfecting the 'Clean, comfortable room #1' that I stayed in for 3 days. Even with the challenging winter weather, Patsy was patient and caring with my arrival. She gave me space when I needed to work and shared her stories when I was looking to chat. She really cares about the people who stay with her and it's not just a business - if you're looking for a great room in Raleigh, you just found it.
Patsy was very generous in her offers to help make my stay pleasant and comfortable. Unfortunate circumstances caused me to leave early; she was very understanding and refunded the fees from the nights I was not able to stay.
I had another great stay with Patsy! I needed a place to stay and I was able to quickly and easily book with Patsy using the instant book feature. She contacted me about the arrival, so I was not left in the dark about the trip.
One of the best features of the room is the bed that is so soft and spacious. Patsy has included plenty of pillows and the sheets smell so wonderful. Also, Patsy has made many improvements on her place since my last visit, including the shower that is even more organized regarding soap bottles and shampoos.
Staying with Patsy is always fun and economical!
Mesa is a fabulous host, she is thoughtful and considerate of your plans and goals during your stay. Not only is her house spotless, but there are rescue pups to snuggle and any supplies you could ever want right in your room! Highly recommend this wonderful host!!
Patsy was a great hostess, very attentive. Added bonus she baked tasty banana bread and pound cake for her guests. She does have dogs but they are very friendly. I recommend Patsy for your next stay in Raleigh.
Patsy was my first airbnb experience, and I am so glad she was! The price was unbeatable, she made sure my friend and I had everything we needed, and we had a great time getting to know her and her dogs! The room was lovely, and we couldn't have asked for more. Definitely stay with Patsy if you are in Raleigh. She is wonderful!
Patsy was very hospitable! She had a clean room ready to go complete with towels and a Kureig machine. The dogs were wonderful and the company was great. Highly recommended! If I ever stop in Raleigh again, I know where I'll be staying :)
Patsy is a lovely host to anybody new or not to the area. She is very welcoming, full of knowledge, and great at communicating with her guests. She really holds the guests' interests and comfort to heart and accommodates for each person individually. Not only that but she has wonderful furry friends to love on as well! You will feel right at home quickly at Patsy's home.
Patsy is truly an amazing host! She is very approachable, kind hearted, and an all around great person to know! Being new to the area, patsy has offered a wealth of knowledge and pointers/advice wherever needed. I have been able to acclimate better because of Patsy, and would recommend her to anybody looking for a place in the Raleigh area.
