Our son has moved away to college and has given us his permission (lol) to rent out his room so that he can help offset his college expenses. What a hoot!

Lilla was awesome! Her home is beautiful and the rooms are extremely nice! I had reserved a smaller room and she put me in the larger room so I would be comfortable. I had a bathroom all to myself. The whole place was so clean and the bed was SOOO soft and comfortable. The first night, she even drove me to the market to get some food and she let me store items in the fridge. Five Stars!
Great location and AMAZING hosts! Very welcoming and friendly. HIGHLY recommended. It's a must stay if you need a place to stay in the Raleigh area.
Lilla and John were fantastic. I would not hesitate to stay with them againg when traveling to Raleigh. I stayed in the Gray room witch was warm and comfy. Lilla had dinner ready when I arrived, she is a great cook. Breakfast was yummy too. I was offered space in the friedge if wanted to buy my own food or I could cook what they had on hand. Overall I could not have picked a better host for my first time using airbnb.
Staying with Lilla Von and John was a pure delight! Flexible check in, just a quick text and she was ready for my arrival. She was very accommodating when I needed things and was always generous with food! I didn't get a chance to try her breakfasts since I started my days at 5am, but the other food she offered was delicious! She was really helpful with helping me navigate through the area, and she even upgraded my room for free! the USA room was spacious and clean. The bed was SO COMFY, I easily fell asleep. Crash the doggie is a sweetie and loves being petted! Beautiful backyard, excellent food, and wonderful company. I will only stay with her whenever I return to Raleigh!
This was my first experience with Airbnb and it was excellent!! Lilla's house has a perfect location outside the city in a great, safe neighborhood, I found it just as described on the website. Her home is very well decorated and equipped with plenty of kitchen supplies, linens, towels, etc., and extra clean. Our room was extremely comfortable. I traveled with my 2 kids and they had a blast at the playground, tennis courts and the pool area. It has all you need to feel at home! Lilla and her family, including her doggy, made us feel so welcome the whole time, she was great to communicate with over the arrangements and during the whole stay, her food was delicious. I am very thankful for such level of quality, definitely go back and recommend this listing.
I stayed at the Lilla's house just one day, but it was great!! The house is great place and lovely dog with Lilla and John. They are gracious hosts and I love talking to Lilla. It was a great pleasure to stay with them. I highly recommend this place.Thanks again!
Lilla and her family are awesome. We had the best breakfast ever and great conversations. I felt like I knew their family for years even though I had just met them. I highly recommend staying with the Duhons. Fantastic experience.

I work as a research recruiter and am a giving and a gracious hostess through Airbnb. My home is kept clean and peaceful. I joined Airbnb to meet interesting people and share conversation and or activities as much or as little as they desire while making extra money for my son's college expenses. I love dogs, flavorful food, gardening, tennis, volleyball, billiards, beaches and cruising. I enjoy being outdoors mostly. I also occasionally enjoy movies but not at the cinema because I would prefer to curl up in a blanket while watching the movie. By request, I will work hard to provide the best information, insider tips and recommendations, to ensure you have a great stay here in Raleigh.
