About This Listing
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!
Gianluca's apartment was just as described, spacious and incredibly comfortable for our group of 4. The forest setting was very peaceful and the basement apartment was very well lit. I would certainly stay here again if I visited Chapel Hill!
Nice place, great views of the forest and super easy access to UNC and the rest of the triangle.
Gianluca's place was just as it is in the photographs. Light, clean, pretty and comfortable. Coffee, tea and chocolate were kindly provided as were linens and towels. Gianluca could not have been a better, more helpful host and the location was super convenient. We hope to return soon!
Gianluca and his wife, Marissa, are exceedingly welcoming and personable, and their quaint, clean, private apartment yielded our ideal stay in Chapel Hill. It's roomy and filled with light. Furthermore, it comes equipped with a small kitchenette, plenty of closet space and a very comfortable bed. Gianluca even provided coffee and chocolate... Leave it to the Italians, to know what's really important in life :)
They are centrally located; thus, we were able into walk to town, each day, to visit various restaurants and shops. In fact, Gianluca has compiled a printed guide that highlights some of the area's best eateries and must-see venues. Finally, a most unexpected treat: One morning, we looked out of our back window to see a group of deer resting comfortably in the forest that borders their home!
In short, we highly recommend this AirB&B experience. Grazie, Gianluca & Marissa!
