Welcome! We are Kirk and Kellee and have a large Italian-style villa on a 3.6 acre lot that we built after living in northern Italy. Our ground-floor apartment is your home away from home! The apartment features a comfortable queen-size bed which accommodates 2 people. We will provide you with clean 100% cotton sheets and luxurious towels. Shampoo, conditioner, soap and lotion is provided. Coffee and tea are available in the kitchen, which has a refrigerator/freezer, range, microwave, toaster and coffee maker, as well as all the basic food prep/serve/dinnerware and linens. Enjoy our restful wooded acreage where you can roam and enjoy the outdoors here in north Chatham County, 6 miles from UNC Park-n-Ride lot, or 10 minute drive to downtown Chapel Hill. You will love your own separate entrance which leads directly outdoors. Satellite TV, wireless internet, and all linens are included. Quiet setting, but close to town. (an air-mattress is available for extra people)
Guests will be able to come and go as needed with your own private entrance.
Interaction with Guests
We will welcome you and show you the ropes but we may or may not be home during your entire stay.
Our home is located in a rural neighborhood just 10 minutes from downtown Chapel Hill. The homes here are all situated on at least 2 acres and most of the neighborhood is densely wooded. It is a lovely, restful place to go exploring, with creeks, large boulders, and a 3 mile walk which includes a stellar view of the surrounding area from high atop Cedar Mountain neighborhood.
The UNC Park-n-Ride lot on Jones Ferry Rd. is just 6.5 miles away. Free bus travel in and around Chapel Hill from there. Our home is also 25 minutes from the Streets at Southpoint mall, 30 minutes to downtown Durham, 35 minutes from RDU, and 45 minutes to downtown Raleigh.
Other Things to Note
I teach Italian cooking classes! If you are interested in adding an interactive/participatory cooking lesson for dinner with your stay, just ask with your reservation request. Cost is $25 per person and can be paid by check to me directly upon arrival. Menu available upon request.
We appreciate you enjoying our home without the use of tobacco products or intoxication (reasonable amounts of alcohol allowed). We do not allow pets, and appreciate your respectful use of our home and peaceful atmosphere, watching any children you bring carefully for their safety and the protection of the property. Thank you!
