Bruce welcomed Nancy and I when we arrived and carried our bags from the car to our rooms. He showed us where everything was and gave us each a "Welcome' book with house rules, maps, restaurant and shopping suggestions. Kim and Bruce invited us to share their living space with them including the kitchen and family room. Breakfast was delicious each morning and the hosts sat and ate with us, sharing great conversation and advice on things to see and do in the Chapel Hill area. The house is beautiful and all room are just a they appear in the photos. The beds are very comfortable and the house is immaculate! There were many personal touches that made us feel very welcome. Their home is in a very quiet residential neighborhood, good for walking, and just a short drive to UNC campus, shops and restaurants.
Kim and Bruce are wonderful hosts! Upon arrival we were welcomed into their home and provided with yummy snacks and beverages. They both took time to help us find our way around, which was especially helpful since this was our first visit to Chapel Hill. The guest room/area is exactly as pictured/described and pretty much any toiletry you could imagine was available. The best part of our stay was visiting with Kim and Bruce over the coffee and breakfast each morning that they provided. They clearly go above and beyond to make their guests comfortable in any way possible and you’ll leave feeling like old friends!
Kim and her lovely home bear the seal of super host - and for good reason. She has created a wonderful haven for travelers. She has anticipated and prepared for every thing a weary traveler would need. She and her husband love their area, take pride in it, and share it graciously. The whole place is bright, clean, nicely decorated. Breakfast and snacks are offered. Bed is comfy!
Bruce welcomed us into he & Kim's lovely decorated home with a nice warm fire in the Carolina room. He handed us a well put together portfolio that was customized with out names on it! We were going to head out to dinner but were tired from the road so just stayed in and ordered a pizza and cozied up by the fireplace. Bruce offered a couple of cold beers that took the edge off of our road torn souls, ahhh.
Our room was well appointed with an ensuite bathroom, bed was very comfortable with a memory foam (website hidden) and remotes in our reach to hunker down in our room if we wanted. Details like labeled shampoo, condition, body wash and lotion in the shower. A drawer for essentials you may have forgotten like travel toothbrush, toothpaste-make-up remover toilettes etc-nice touches all about.
We hung out and shared our airbnb host and travel experiences. I hit the hay a little early. We woke up to a lovely continental breakfast with fresh fruit, pastries,cereal, coffee and my husband's favorite tea.
Kim even has a clever looking glass water cooler on the counter flavored with fresh fruit. Kim even packed us a little goodie bag for the road. Water, homemade cookies, organic granola bars....and helped yo the car with my luggage.
These hosts and accommodations go above and beyond the norm and go the extra mile. Two thumbs up!
Second visit and all was perfect! I had forgotten to comment earlier on the memory foam bed in this guest room; it's so comfortable. Thanks Kim & Bruce--hope to see you again soon.
Kim and Bruce were welcoming right from the beginning, greeting us at the door, providing beverages upon arrival and showing us around. Our room was perfect, comfortable, clean and spacious. Breakfast was delicious--plenty to eat and variety. Kim and Bruce are made to be hosts, they both took an interest in who we are as people and conversation was easy and enjoyable.
Kim and Bruce were wonderful hosts. They made us feel so welcome. They provided directions to our restaurant and Kim even led us out of the neighborhood to make sure we got on the right road. The room and private bath was very comfortable, cheery and clean. The house is beautiful and the breakfast was excellent. They enjoy welcoming people and make you feel so at home! I would definitely recommend Kim and Bruce for your AirBnB stay in Chapel Hill.

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.
