Wonderful room and hospitality. Bruce and Kim are a genuinely charming couple. Rarely have I felt so welcomed.
Bruce was their when we arrived, carried our suitcases in and checked the Internet for some places we were interested in. He was very gracious. The listing was very accurate, my room felt spacious and a sort of elegance with it's high bed and very comfortable mattress. Kim's decorating skills made it feel very welcoming.
The neighborhood was beautiful, quiet and wonderful to walk in.
Tout avait été préparé pour nous accueillir du mieux possible. Dans la cuisine, il y avait des gâteaux faits maison, des boissons fraiches et chaudes. Dans les chambres, il y avait des petits chocolats à déguster, un peignoir de bain et un classeur avec toutes les informations importantes pour visiter et se déplacer dans les environs. La maison était magnifique (encore beaucoup mieux que dans la description!), spacieuse et comfortable. Le petit déjeuner était un régal (fruits frais, jus de fruits, yaourts, pains, confitures etc....). La maison est située dans un environnement calme, au milieu de grands arbres, dans un quartier résidentiel de haut standing. Le tout proche de commerces et restaurants.
Bruce and Kim were incredibly hospitable and welcoming. We got there later in the day, had to shower and get right back out. We came back late that night and had a very comfortable nights sleep. Breakfast and their company (along with another couple that was staying there) was wonderful and easy. We had great conversation and felt totally relaxed. Kim and Bruce seem to genuinely enjoy hosting folks and getting to know them. The location is fantastic. Very close to down town Chapel Hill. Their home is beautiful. We would definitely return in the future.
From the moment we arrived Kim was welcoming and helpful in every way as we got settled. We were meeting our son who was running late at her house to go to my youngest son's college soccer game. My husband left for the game and I stayed back to meet my son. Because of the traffic and huge parking issues at the stadium Kim suggested she drive us over to meet him for the game. That was such a blessing in itself to have that convenience provided by her for us! She went beyond hospitality to help us out. As for the house, it was in a charming older neighborhood but the house completely renovated and updated. It was magazine perfect - clean and comfortable. We met other interesting guest staying there from New York and all enjoyed a delicious breakfast together. We would choose Kim's listing again.

About the Host, Kim
My husband, Bruce, and I have been together for 14 wonderful years and knew that we were two peas in a pod upon our first meeting. We love to camp, dine out and travel. We have been fortunate to visit many great places like the E.U., Costa Rica, Canadian Rockies and all of the Caribbean Islands. We hope to see Ireland and Alaska in our near future.
Bruce is a Respiratory Therapist at Duke Hospital and I am an office manager at a rehab company. We do not have children, but we do have four lovable cats.
We love to entertain family, friends and guests who always feel comfortable in our home! From game night to watching the big game on the big screen, we always have a great time!
So come on over, kick your feet up and relax. We would love to host you.
