Best to remove shoes on entering house. We do! Please come in quietly late at night since we are up early (5 a.m.) to go to the gym before work. There is a small refrigerator for your use in the dining room. Please clean up after yourselves and leave your room as you found it.
Elizabeth runs an absolutely wonderful airbnb, deceptively close to downtown Raleigh despite feeling almost like you're in the countryside. The welcome, the room, the breakfast and the chat were all great and I left for my flight wishing I'd had another night or two to see the town and stay in a lovely house.
My husband and I spent two nights at Elizabeth and Dan's home for a comedy show downtown. "Hotel Nicaragua" is immaculately clean and cozy. Their gorgeous home is situated in a quiet neighborhood about a fifteen minute walk downtown. They both made us feel right at home, we'd love to come back during warmer weather! Thanks again!
Elizabeth and Dan were excellents hosts and great ambassadors for what airbnb hosts can be! Their home is not only beautiful and tastefully furnished, but also located very conveniently to both downtown and NC State. I was greeted warmly, the accomodations made me feel right at home, and the breakfast Elizabeth prepared was... well, fantastic. I also really enjoyed an early morning walk around their Boylan Heights neighborhood. A great experience.
Elizabeth and Dan were extremely welcoming, warm and have a beautiful home. The room is welcoming, private and has everything you need for a great night in Raleigh.
Elizabet and Dan made me feel like I found a new home away from home in Raleigh. Their immaculate historic home was full of charm and gave a quiet peaceful place for me to sleep, think, and do a bit of computer work. The location is within easy walking distance of restaurants and other attraction. It is also close the the NC State campus segment I needed to be near. I will gladly stay at "Hotel Nicaragua" again.
As always, my experience at Hotel Nicaragua was great. Elizabeth and her husband couldn't be nicer. I love staying there and will definitely be back!
We had an amazing experience at Hotel Nicaragua! This is an immaculate home restored to the period in a historic neighborhood conveniently situated near downtown Raleigh with all it has to offer. Within walking distance are many fine restaurants and the Greenway system. We love the room and it's comfortable furnishings and antiques. Elizabeth & Dan are very accommodating and caring. Elizabeth is a superb cook and a wealth of information about the local area. We felt very at home and delightful. We look forward to visiting again!

We are professional business owners who now have grown children and empty bedrooms. We get up early and head for the gym each weekday morning. We love our neighborhood and our capital city and look forward to sharing with others. We walk all over the downtown area. Come stay with us in Raleigh!
