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.

Kim & Bruce are the most gracious hosts and their home is truly lovely! I left feeling as if I had made new friends and been restored by their hospitality. Their home is recently renovated and beautifully decorated, so a real delight for their guests. As hosts they have thought through every need of a traveler, communication is prompt and the location makes getting around Chapel Hill a breeze. I hope to return and can see this listing is already in high demand; if you are able to stay, you are sure to enjoy!
Wow, what a great first Air BnB experience! Bruce and Kim made us feel right at home immediately. The accommodations were beyond the description and B and K went above and beyond to ensure we had an awesome experience in Chapel Hill. On top of that, it was a pleasure to get to know them as people. They are down to earth, good people which made the stay even better. The location is great for getting to UNC campus and gettin around town. We would without a doubt recommend this listing to all. Thank you Bruce and Kim for a great experience! - Shay and Tom
Having read so many wonderful reviews, my first oversea airbnb experience could only be a disappointment....But having spent a week with Kim and Bruce, I know it's all true, including the deer in the backyard! The house is very clean, comfortable and has a relaxed atmosphere. The cats are unique little characters and know how to be there if you want thema. I slept great and hardly suffered from a jetlag. Kim and Bruce are genuine, open and attentive and certainly have 'hospitality' embedded in their genes. They were very helpful in making suggestions were to go for eating, shopping, sightseeing and made a huge contribution to our trip. This is the five****** place with the personal touch! Small hint: use setting 3 for toasting your bagel if you want to enjoy the generous breakfast without the sound of the fire alarm....
We had an absolutely WONDERFUL stay with Kim and Bruce. Their home is beautiful and you could not ask for better hosts. This was our first experience with AirBnb and our first trip to North Carolina, and they were an integral part in making this trip so fun and relaxing for us.
Our room and private bath were spacious and comfortable, with lots of amenities like shower supplies, a blow dryer, q-tips, bathrobes, flat screen tv, water bottles, little chocolates - you name it. The kitchen is modern and welcoming, with a giant jar of homemade cookies and another huge glass jug with spigot filled with cucumber-infused water. The "Great Room" (as we called it) is a terrific place to relax, drink your morning coffee, socialize with the hosts, etc. It has wall to wall windows that showcase their serene backyard filled with trees and squirrels. The neighborhood is beautiful with winding streets and friendly neighbors out walking their dogs, playing with their children, or just out for a jog. They live very close to everything - downtown Chapel Hill, UNC, Durham, etc.
The hosts themselves, Kim and Bruce, are truly lovely people. They made us feel right at home. They know Chapel Hill very well and clearly love their city and the surrounding area. They had lots of great suggestions of things to do and places to eat, and spent the mornings chatting with us. They are the type of people that if you want to socialize, they are happy to oblige or if you just need a place to stay, they give you your privacy.
I could go on and on about the dozens of little things they do to make you feel welcome in their home, but suffice to say that my husband and I had a wonderful experience and highly recommend staying here!

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.
