1930's bungalow located conveniently close to Duke and downtown Durham. There are plenty of really good dining places within a 3 minute drive from the house. Grocery store walking distance and a good neighborhood for walking and running. Study, work and rest peacefully in a quiet house with plenty of space to claim for your own.

The space
Charming bungalow close to downtown Durham, Duke University and historic Durham. Great restaurants a hop, skip and a jump from the house. The Nasher Art Museum, Durham Bulls ballpark, Sarah P Duke Gardens, and so much more are within 2 miles of this fun, colorful home lived in by an artist.

The Cat House Guest Suite is named for the big yellow cat hanging on the front of the house. And inside there is one cat, Roy, and a small dog, Dave. If you are allergic to cats, you will not be happy here.

The suite is designed with Asian art I have collected. There is a sleeping area with a queen-sized bed and a sitting area with a table and futon couch (spring mattress, so great for sleeping too.) This large room can accommodate a couple and a child. You have your own toilet and shower/tub area with a sink in an adjoining area.

Guests have dining and living room, deck, kitchen and laundry room privileges. I have my own suite area; this house is big enough for guests to relax in privacy .

I enjoy sharing the grittiness of Durham with visitors. I've been here 25 years and know my way around to wherever you might want to go. This is the perfect place to call home when you are visiting the town that tobacco built.

Traveling, whether domestically or internationally, is one of my passions. I love meeting new people, learning about different cultures and hearing different languages. As a host I really enjoy being with folks who want to share stories of their adventures and are curious to learn more about my town.

Coffee is my must drink beverage of choice in the morning, and I will have a pot ready for whomever would like to have some too. The back deck which looks out onto woods is a great place to sit. The fully-equipped kitchen is available to cook meals or there are wonderful places to eat within walking distance.

During your stay

I am retired and spend much of the time at home, but because of the way the house is configured, I can be in my suite and the guest won't even know I'm home.

I respect your privacy and am also delighted to interact as best suits my and your availability and needs. My dog, Dave, and cat, Roy, are available to guests. So even when I'm not at home, guests are welcome to enjoy the animals.
