Interaction with Guests
Guests have private entrance to their unit, but we are happy to assist with logistics, directions to Duke or downtown, regional attractions, etc. Just ask!
Safe, walkable residential neighborhood very close to both Duke campuses, the NC School of Science & Math & Ninth Street's "alternative" shopping district - ethnic restaurants, bars, Whole Foods. We love living here. It is one of the most popular neighborhoods in Durham which has a booming downtown cultural scene.
There are bus stops nearby for Durham transit system. Near corner of Ninth & Main St you can catch a convenient free connector bus that loops through downtown. You can walk to Duke's East Campus and catch free bus to West Campus. For more info, email me at (email hidden) for more details.
Other Things to Note
Bath has shower. Kitchen has wide sink, wood laminate countertop, apt-sized elec stove, fridge, microwave, coffee pot. We provide dishes, pots & pans, microwave, coffee pot w/ coffee/tea & a few snacks; also sheets and towels are provided.
No smoking indoors, and no pets please. Also, please avoid cranked up music or loud parties (we live downstairs remember!) And due to stairs and 2nd story balcony entrance, this unit is not ideal for small children or elderly guests who have mobility issues.
