This bright 1280 sq. ft. contemporary downtown loft is within walking distance of some of Durham’s greatest attractions including the American Tobacco complex, Durham Bulls' ballpark, Durham Central Park, DPAC, Carolina Theatre, shopping and lots of fabulous bars and restaurants.

The Space

Excellent location! Rare find in the heart of Durham in highly desirable location on Main St in the center of Downtown (Five Points).

Short walk to the DPAC, the farmers market at Durham Central Park, Brightleaf Shopping Area and the Carolina Theatre; just steps from the Durham Bull’s stadium, the American Tobacco complex, the Durham Arts Council and many restaurants and bars.

The loft features 1280 sq ft of contemporary designed interior within a beautiful solid brick early-century building, converted to lofts in 1993. All quality materials, beautiful kitchen with hand-made wood cabinets, Spanish granite countertop and stainless steel appliances, large molding accents, huge bedroom, large walk-in closet, laundry and ironing room.

The bathroom has been beautifully renovated with all new tile, hardware and fixtures. The loft is also equipped with a Video inter-phone that allows you to screen visitors.

Natural light floods double-pane windows on both ends of unit. Enjoy views of the center of downtown’s Main street on one side and the American Tobacco complex on the other. Convenient free gated parking in the back of the building with card access (the building has a front and back entrance).

Loft very comfortable for two people - not really set up for additional gusts other than a child with pack and play or who could sleep on a window seat.

The Neighborhood

Lots of fun within a fifteen minute walk! Park your car for free and catch a show at the DPAC on Friday night followed by a glass of wine at one of many places to choose from within a few blocks. Walk back to a beautiful loft with a comfortable king-sized bed and wake up to sun light pouring in through large windows. Walk to Scratch for breakfast or bring pastries home from up the street at Loaf. Go down the street to TOAST for lunch and take a stroll through downtown to Durham Central Park, a walk on the American Tobacco trail or to stroll down Ninth Street. Watch a Saturday-night show at the Carolina Theater or MotorCo. and go for a pint at the Fullsteam taproom. Sunday have brunch at Rue Cler and walk to Brightleaf for shopping and lunch at Parker & Otis before heading back to your car - for the first time since arriving!
And come back again and go to the other many attractions and restaurants we haven't even mentioned!

Getting around

Most convenient transit of all - your feet.

If you'd rather ride or go a little further, there is the free Bull City Connector Bus servicing Main Street all the way to Duke University, Ninth Street, Golden Belt, Brightleaf, Five Points and more.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Ann's Durham loft is so stylish and quaint. The central downtown location could not be better. Thank you Ann for your hospitality!

    June 2014
  • We loved staying in this loft. It's so beautiful and perfect for the two of us. There was plenty of space to spread out and Ann was really helpful throughout our entire stay. The location is perfect as well. Will stay here again if we're back that way.

  • The loft is beautiful, just as pictured. It was clean and comfortable and oh my gosh- roomy. It is huge. The kitchen is wonderful too. The location is great for restaurants and walking around town. Parking was included which is really nice, it can be hard to find a spot otherwise. Ann was accommodating when it came to getting the key. We had a great stay and would love to come back.

  • We stayed at the loft for two weeks while we explored the Triangle area and got a feel for what it would be like to live there. We were very pleased with our choice. The loft is spacious, comfortable and felt like home. Especially liked the Sonos speaker that can access music of your choice through a downloadable app to your cell phone. We also liked the added convenience of parking in a well-lit parking lot behind the building. Ann met us there when we arrived and took us through everything we needed to know. She was also available by phone or text and responded quickly when we contacted her. We would stay at the loft again.

  • Absolutely pleased! Ann was a great host and so kindly accommodated some last minute changes on our travel party, which I appreciate very much. The location is great, the apartment is beautiful and very clean. Me and the team highly recommend and would most definitely stay there again.

  • This was my first Airbnb stay and it definitely won't be my last given how well everything worked out. A coworker picked up the keys from Ann and I checked in to the beautiful apartment with everything I needed for my 10 nights. The location was extremely convenient for me right in the heart of downtown Durham and the apartment itself is beautifully decorated and quite large. The bedroom is enormous in fact! It was convenient to have a parking pass at the back of the building and washer/dryer came in handy as well.

    Only cons would be that downtown Durham can (email hidden) "shady" after dark and the building itself is quite old so the floor above squeaks quite a bit as the tenants above walk around. Nothing to bring the overall experience down from my 5 stars though, it was ideal for me.

    Response from Ann:

    Mark, thx for the great review. One question... Did you actually have a bad experience that led to your comment about Durham being 'shady 'at night? Or did folks just tell you it was? Just curious....
