1980's rustic mobile home - back in the woods but near everything in Carrboro and Chapel Hill. Located inside Carrboro city limits, with a Chapel Hill mailing address. Cannot be seen from road. Solar lights on deck. Owls and deer!
This is a 1981 doublewide mobile home. It is clean, fully furnished with a working kitchen, dishes, pots, etc. Two bedrooms, two baths (one off the master bedroom). We use the two bedrooms as an office and artist studio when guests are not using them. Behind a third locked door is a toolroom - supply closet, with it's own exterior door.
In summer, there are window air-conditioners. We clean and air the trailer before your arrival. A few minutes of open windows or A/C will remove our southern humidity.
There is a covered, screened front deck with chairs and a table. There are trees and lots of birds, deer, and the sometimes a spotted owl hooting. Quiet and peaceful, can't be seen from the road.
Winter heat is by in room heaters, with a central electric heat furnace that gets expensive - tends to feel a little chilly in the winter to most southerners.
There is no internet at the trailer - there are wifi sites all over town (and free Carrboro Wifi downtown).
Cellphone/smartphone service is good.
Privacy, trees, park your car and ride your bike (free bus during the week has bike rack). It's about 10 minutes drive to downtown Chapel Hill or Carrboro. It's about 5 minutes to the Park & Ride for transit throughout the Triangle area.
Nearby shopping centers are Timberlyne and Chapel Hill North with shopping (Food Lion, Harris Teeter), gas, restaurants, and post office.
Whole Foods is about 15 minutes away; Weaver Street Co-op in Carrboro is a great gathering place. Whole Foods in Chapel Hill is quite large. Also a Trader Joe's just down the road from Whole Foods.
Guests have use of the main part of the trailer including the kitchen. We access a toolroom / office from the exterior side door so your space is private.
Interaction with guests
We try to meet everyone when they arrive. You are on your own, but we are nearby if you need anything.
Other things to note
We stick by our NO PETS policy.
No smoking, and no pets, sorry. We live nearby so we can come by if you have any questions. Yes, this really is a doublewide mobile home, so nothing is too fussy! Please do not crank up the utilities while you are not at home. A/C via window units.
Usual Airbnb expectation that you will treat this as a home. No parties but enjoy a quiet dinner on the screen porch with friends.
Note that the home has not been "childproofed". The utility closet is behind a curtain, there is no door.
We live nearby - walking distance from the trailer. We are both former New Yorkers, but we have been in the Chapel Hill ares for decades. Interests are writing, photography, music, travel, books, music, fixing things (houses - cars - radios - clocks), and community radio (Tofu is a DJ on the local station).
Our guru is taking us on a quest to achieve complete ignorance but the journey is lengthy. :) Meanwhile we seek to honor the spirit of those we encounter everywhere.
We've used AirBnB many times ourselves, and like quiet places that are "down to earth", not too fancy, and private - sort of like this one. Hablamos Espanol tambien!
