About this listing

This is a 10' x 10' bedroom that contains a single bed, window, desk, a bookcase, 4' mirror and a closet. There is a shared bathroom across the hall that is also used by several long term guests, but w/ 5-10' showers, it has not been an issue.

The Space

Room is clean and tidy w/ ceiling fan, central a/c & hardwood floors and part of a 2400 sq' single family home located in quiet neighborhood, on D and CL bus line, and within easy access to (website hidden) and Duke U., Whole Foods, East gate shopping ctr and University mall. Have 1 very friendly dog--Schatzien. Share bath and kitchen. Continental breakfast available.

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.

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting Around

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.
