Interaction with Guests
We are here to make you feel comfortable but respect your privacy. The downstairs is completely separate from the upstairs living quarters. Our home is very quiet and our two dogs are kept upstairs.
The neighborhood is full of trees, friendly people, the opportunity to take walks, enjoy the park, tennis courts and of course, our close proximity to three major universities, the town of Chapel Hill and Durham, recently rated as a number one place to live in America.
5 minutes from downtown. 20 minutes from the airport.
Other Things to Note
The two bedrooms share a bath which we lock off to one side if you want separate bathrooms. One room has a king size bed, dresser, sitting couch and tv/dvd/internet and the other room has two twin beds that can be put together to make a king plus a sitting chair, dresser, tv/dvd/internet. The twin/king room has access to a private bathroom and shower off of the main living area. Guests in this room would have a key to use that bathroom and the shower next to it. The shower is huge and has two shower heads in different locations. The bathroom is 30 paces from the bedroom (we walked it off to be sure!).

Scott & Lynda were incredible hosts, and very nice people to boot. They made our family feel right at home. Their place had everything we needed for our stay. They were very generous in helping us out when we needed to clean the interior of our car, saving us a trip to the car wash! This is a great property for families with kids and anyone seeking a quiet getaway in Durham area. Durham is a place we visit often, so we will be back! Thanks y'all.
Our experience with airbnb once again lived up to expectations. The apt was even more spacious than the pictures. We were in town for our daughter's surgery at Duke University Hospital. Scott and Lynda were supportive from the very beginning of the reservation process given that our discharge date was only tenative. During her hospitalization, they were genuinely concerned and listened patiently to our updates. It was as if we were coming home to family. We did not have time to use the game room or watch movies, but the pool table, foosball, and extensive DVR collection is a definite plus. Whatever your reason for coming to the area, Scott and Lynda are gracious hosts; the apartment will meet your needs for a comfortable, well appointed space to relax and rejuvenate.
Beautiful home, VERY spacious, couldn't have asked for a better place for my family to stay when they came into town for the weekend!! Thank you, Scott and Lynda! Hope to visit again!
Scott and Linda were the best! We couldn't have asked for better hosts. Location was perfect for us. It was clean and comfortable. They had a fire going for us when we arrived! We will definitely stay again when we are in the area.
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect home-away-from-home for our daughter's out-of-town wedding. Scott and Lynda were so gracious and welcoming to our family. The setting is gorgeous, the apartment really spacious and bright, very private, so comfortable, and extremely well appointed. Great location. It was ideal for us and we hope to stay here again.
Stay here if you can! Scott and Lynda are absolutely lovely people, and give you just the amount of hospitality or space that you need. Their home is gorgeous, enormous, and very inviting. You have the basement, which is incredibly spacious. We felt very much at home and didn't want to leave the king sized bed (one of the most comfortable I've ever experienced!). The views are wonderful, the neighborhood is safe and gorgeous (especially good for walking). The kitchen is small but even has a dishwasher. Do not miss the pool or fuss ball table. Internet was good, and pictures are accurate. The place is immaculate. Looking forward to staying here again in the future!

As travelers of the world we welcome the opportunity to share our home with those visiting the states for the first time and want to experience all that the Research Triangle has to offer or those visiting a loved one at one of the many nearby universities. We are also aware that the business traveler sometimes is just plain weary of yet another hotel. Let us change that experience for you.
