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 was a lovely host. Came out to meet us in the pouring down rain,,, made sure that we had more than enough sheets and towels,,,, and made some great suggestions about places near by. The wildlife out back is amazing. We watched deer for hours. Safe, clean and modern.
This in-law unit below the main house was very comfy and clean. Extremely conveniently located to UNC. Easy street parking with a parking permit which the host provides. Gianluca and family were very friendly. Left some nice chocolates for us and recommended fun and local places to eat. You will have some noise in the morning from above as the family has young children. Highly recommended!
My husbabd and I staid one night in Gianluca's place. The apartment is very cute, very clean, very organized and, cherry on the top, has a very confortable bed! It is quite private, just one window is not but he put shades everywhere. The view in the little forest was a plus.
Gianluca's was very nice in welcoming us! He left some coffee and chocolate for us.
The neighborhood is very cute too and close to campus, it is for sure a nice walk to it! We highly raccomend this place!
Gianluca was very fast responding and let me feel I could just ask him anything when I contacted him in the beginning. the place was very spacy for two people. it's clean and tidy. I didn't feel that I intruded into someone's home because no extra personal stuff there. yet, I felt comfortable immediately when I walked in. the outside wood view was a bonus. it's an easy walk from the place to the Chapel Hill. both Gianluca and his wife were very friendly and willing to help while we stayed there. highly recommend this place.
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!
