We live simply and value environmental sensitivity--reduce, reuse,& recycle everything possible, thermostat is set at 78 degrees in summer and around 68 degrees in winter--supported by a wonderful wood burning stove centrally located which means it is usu. closer to 76-80 degrees w/ bedrooms being cooler, There is a washer available for 1 load/wk, but request ALL clothes be washed w/ cold water and air dry whenever possible--have well constructed cable wash line available, and encourage 5-10 min. showers. Having said all of that, we do want you to "make yourself at home" and let us know whether we need to tweak anything.
Kitchen with some cabinet and refrigerator space.
Interaction with Guests
Enjoy interaction, but I also need peace and quiet evenings to finish computer work and free reading. I am comfortable with silence when sharing living room space in front of the fire evenings.
I have lived on this street 11 years and I know, interact and love my neighbors, most of whom are longterm residents,so we "look" out after each other. It is also quiet and safe.
The CH buses are free and travel to CH, Carrboro and Hillsboro. The Triangle Transit bus fare is $2/ride and goes to RDU airport, Duke, greater Durham and Raleigh w/ limited coverage on Sunday.
Other Things to Note
I provide breakfast tems for short term guests--those here for wk or less, but anticipate long term guests provide their own breakfast due to reduced rates.
No smoking on property, Mutual respect for noise after 10pm--request earphones for music/movies, etc Please limit alcohol to 1-2 beers (or comparable)/daily.
My two-night stay with Ruth was my first Airbnb experience and it was well worth it! My room had a very comfortable bed and I had access to a private bathroom, which made me feel right at home. The best part about my stay was getting to meet Ruth, a friendly host and just a sweet person in general. I really enjoyed chatting with her and learning more about UNC and Chapel Hill. I definitely recommend booking a stay with her!
I had a wonderful time at Ruth's home; this was my first airbnb experience. I am naturally anti-social and so was worried how it would go. Ruth was so easy to talk to and made me feel completely at home. I enjoyed her company and those of her other boarders. It was so easy to come and go and the room was very comfortable. I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else if ever I find myself in Chapel Hill again.
Ruth was very welcoming and her home is lovely. My room was charming and very clean. Her location is in a beautiful area and very close to Chapel Hill shopping, etc. I also enjoyed the backyard - it so peaceful. A perfect place!
My stay was very comfortable and enjoyable. Very welcoming. Good accommodations in a lovely home in a nice neighborhood.
Ruth is an ideal host. She is friendly and warm and makes you feel at home. This an ideal environment for a professional in town for work. The house is in a perfect area, a short walk from groceries and other amenities, easy access for public transit, and very close to a great running/walking path. She also an extremely sweet dog.
