Our clean 1bdrm, full-bath, in-law apt, is in a quiet, central subdivision. We are steps to the free Chapel Hill buses, a 10-5 min walk to Franklin & UNC. Enjoy cable tv & drink french press coffee with wooded view. Kitchenette. On-street parking.
This 1-bedroom, 775 sq ft apartment is close to downtown, UNC and major roadways, but it also has a quiet wooded view. Guests have their own entrance down a landscaped path, a kitchenette (mini-fridge, sink, microwave, toaster, hot-water kettle, french press with freshly ground coffee), and a full bathroom with tub. The bedroom has a queen-sized bed, and the brand new sofa bed in the living room is a double that sleeps another two. We provide a permit for on-street parking for one car. The whole house is pet and smoke free.
The entire apartment is for guest use. We provide bedding and towels, basic toiletries, hair-dryer, iron, etc. There is no laundry, but enquire for longer stays - we live upstairs and will work something out.
Interaction with Guests
We live upstairs and will be home to greet you and show you around. Please let us know when you plan to arrive so we can arrange to be there. We are always reachable by phone/txt for any needs that should arise. If we happen to be out of town during your visit, special arrangements will be made.
We live in a quiet subdivision, within walking distance to UNC and Chapel Hill's downtown.
The free Chapel Hill busses run on Martin Luther King blvd, just steps from the Columbia Pl subdivision. Parking in our neighborhood requires passes, which we will provide for one car (or, in the case of 1-2 day visit, for 2 cars). If you are bringing more than one car for a longer period of time, please enquire so we can make arrangements.
Other Things to Note
Check in time is after 3pm and check out time is at noon. We are generally flexible, schedules and other guests permitting: please ask!
This was a perfect place to stay for me and my family on our road trip through North Carolina. Gianluca was very friendly and his place was impeccable -- exactly as advertised. Both the pre-arrival and the check-in process were truly a breeze, and Gianluca offered us helpful advice on great places to eat in the area. The space offered plenty of room for our group of four to comfortably spend the night and eat dinner. The views were seriously gorgeous. I would highly recommend this place.
Thank you for hosting us, Gianluca! We had such a great time! You had everything covered and made us feel so welcome. The apartment is lovely - so clean and comfortable - and in a beautiful, safe neighborhood. The fact that we were able to walk to Franklin Street (@ 1 mile each way) made our stay even more enjoyable.
We will definitely be back to stay again - most likely next year when we come down for the Duke / Syracuse game!
Thanks again for making us feel right at home.

Gianluca and his wife are perfect hosts. The location is very good, close to the center of Chapel Hill but also quiet. The appartment was clean and exactly as described on the fotos. The bed and sofa bed are very confortable. We enjoyed the bottle of wine, the chocolate and the coffee. The neighbourhood was very nice. We were nine days at Gianluca and would stay there again. He gave us a parking-permit for all days. In the bathroom there was everyting we needed. We could also use free WLAN. Thank you Gianluca!
Great experience! Gianluca is a excellent host, friendly, welcoming and helpful. The pictures are very accurate, the place was very clean. Nice, quite, safe neighborhood very close to Franklin Street. I had a short stay and was out doing things, but the place would be very comfortable if you wanted to stay in a while. Comfortable bed, and some thoughtful amenities. I will definitely be staying here next time I am in the area. Thank you!
Gianluca was a wonderful host. He met us when we arrived and showed us the apartment, which is just as described: very comfortable, convenient, in a nice neighborhood. He also provided nice locally roasted coffee and some chocolate to enjoy. We would absolutely stay here again and recommend the apartment highly.
This was an excellent spot about 4mins. Drive to the UNC campus and Franklin street activity but is in a quiet enclave. The bed and sofa bed were comfy and the extra touches like fresh ground coffee , clementines and chocolates were so appreciated . Gianluca and his wife Marisa were very welcoming . We were in sunny lower level apartment with separate entrance and plenty of space .I would stay again!
Great host great apartment and great location. Our 3 days as a family was very pleasent and relaxing. Gianluca was very available but not intrusive -fine balance to hit. Highly recommended. Thanks Gianluca!!!
