Scott and Lynda's home is in a lovely neighborhood, and everything about the listing was entirely accurate. Scott greeted us warmly and had been in prior communication with us to let us know they were remodeling the main floor of the house so we wouldn't be surprised on our arrival. Our suite was on the lower level and completely closed off from the rest of the house, so our privacy was complete. The space itself has everything, and more, that you might need to stay a short or an extended period of time - very large bedroom with an incredibly comfortable bed and attached bath, and a living room with large flat screen TV and multiple choices for movies, a well-appointed kitchen and dining area, and access to an outdoor patio. Although we stayed only one night, we will definitely contact them for any future stays in Durham. Scott and Lynda were gracious and accommodating hosts. Thank you!
We had a wonderful time at their place, they are very welcoming which made us immediately feel comfortable even after the long flight. We really appreciated their recommendations for restaurants, cafes etc and they helped us booking and printing some baseball tickets. We even got some donuts from Monuts as a present, some of the best donuts there :) We loved the apartment which is extraordinary, the rooms are big, comfortable with even more than we ever thought, the beds are amazingly comfortable. The room with billard and table soccer was great to relax.
You set the benchmark here at airbnb. Best place we have ever been to. if we get to Durham, we would immediately stay there again. Thanks for everything!
Scott and Lynda were ideal hosts: warm, welcoming, generous and good-humored. The downstairs space was huge and met our every need. We enjoyed all aspects of our visit with them: the comfortable king-sized bed, a lovely terrace, up-to-date kitchen area, convenient location (minutes from downtown Durham and Duke!) , nice walks all around the lovely neighborhood, and especially the friendliness and interesting conversations with our hosts.
Couldn't have been more pleased with the space! It was well beyond my expectations...absolutely "pristine" as Scott stated in one of his messages.
What was even more incredible was the interaction that my daughter and I had with the hosts. In many ways, I felt that I was staying with friends. I had to wrap a wedding gift during my stay, and Lynda provided me with an abundance of supplies just because that is the kind of people she and Scott are. They were friendly and kind without being intrusive. It was so, so pleasant. I would absolutely stay with them again and would highly recommend this space to someone looking for a wonderful stay.
The description on the web is reliable and I chose it merely from that. My stay was better than expected and I expect yours would be too. Scott and Lynda were gracious and unobtrusive, forgiving when I kept setting off the burglar alarm (a personal failing).
I could not be more pleased.
Everything is as advertised and the neighborhood is nice & quiet. My hosts are gracious & genteel, but since I am returning Sunday for another week I shall defer further comment at this time.
Rest assured, however, that I fully expect them to entirely favorable ones.
A supremely comfy bed, a well appointed kitchen, and a delightful living room with giant TV screen and remote controlled fireplace! Couldn't ask for anything more but the hosts were so kind and accommodating that if I HAD asked for anything else I'm sure they would have done their best to provide it. Lovely quarters in a lovely home in a lovely town. Thanks so much for sharing your home with me!

About the Host, Scott & Lynda
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.
