The Space

A historic yet comfortable home in the desirable Five Points/Hayes-Barton area of Raleigh, lined with oak trees and sidewalks. The neighborhood is full of classic Craftsman bungalows and lovingly-landscaped family homes. It's a great location for everything in Raleigh. We are only two blocks from an art-house cinema, world-class shrimp and grits at Nofo at The Pig, specialty pizzas at Lily's, a Post Office, an old-fashioned soda fountain and pharmacy, antique stores, baby consignment shops and more. There is a park and children's playground 1 block away. It's ~1 mile to Glenwood South, and only 2-3 miles to downtown Raleigh, Cameron Village and NC State. Only 15 minutes to RDU Airport and Research Triangle Park (RTP), and also convenient to public transportation.

The home is very comfortable and professionally decorated. Formal living and dining rooms, complemented by casual den (with 50" flat screen TV with cable, Xbox, DVD, (website hidden) Chromecast and wood-burning fireplace) and a great kitchen (granite countertops, gas stove, double oven, new fridge, etc.) and Butler’s Pantry. Second floor Master bedroom has king bed, Juliet balcony opening to landscaped backyard, large walk-in closet, Jacuzzi bath and enormous shower with rain head. First floor bedroom has queen bed and a private full bath. There is room for 1-2 more on a comfortable full-size futon on the second-floor landing. We also have a beautiful nursery for those with little ones (and the home has been child-proofed by a professional). The first floor has hardwood floors and persian rugs throughout, and the second has Sea Grass carpeting.

The yard has been landscaped and well-maintained. The back yard in extremely private, framed by beautiful trees and flowers, and has a patio with seating for 5 and a large umbrella, as well as a gas grill. You can park on our quiet street or in the new stone driveway. Our home is equipped with a state of the art security/home automation system, which allows for keyless entry, and wireless, secure internet network is also included.

You will be very comfortable in our home, with it's classic look and modern conveniences within. We have listed it for times when it would be available for your exclusive use, so you have the run of the house (no one else will be sharing). Let us know if you have any questions. Thank you for looking, and we hope to see you in Raleigh!

Guest Access

Our guests have access to the entire home. Our place is your place!

Interaction with Guests

Guests have the place to themselves; we will not be there during your stay. Our typical interaction is messaging during the booking process and that's it! Given our state of the art security system, we don't even need to be there to hand off keys, so you have the run of the place from arrival to departure.

The Neighborhood

It's a charming area with tree-lined streets and parks, shops & restaurants to walk to. Hayes-Barton is one of the most historic parts of Raleigh, with most homes 70-100+ years old.

Getting around

We are in a walkable area, but public transportation is close by and downtown Raleigh is literally only minutes away by car. The airport is also close, 15 minutes by car. There is parking on the driveway and in the street at the house.

Check In
  • House was great, very clean and as described. Hosts communicated very well and checked in on us. Very helpful

    House is perfect for families with young ones as things are baby proofed and they have a dedicated nursery with a crib. Master upstairs next to nursery with very nice bathroom. Flat area up with full bed as well as another suite down. Nice living area and den with TV and toys for kids. Kitchen was well equipped.

    Neighborhood is great

  • Kevin was super helpful all throughout the booking process, and the house guide he has put together is incredibly clear and explicit, leaving you no doubt how to work everything! The Chromecast in the den is great, letting me link up (website hidden) and watch my beloved Tigers win every night.

  • Our first experience with Airbnb, and what a positive one! The house was just as described, and such a comfortable place for our family. Clean, comfortable, and charming. The owner was so gracious with us when we needed just a bit more time on the check out side. Would highly recommend!

    Yay, another airbnb convert! Kacey, you were a great guest, so thanks for staying with us and leaving a good review. We really appreciate it!

  • This home is absolutely stunning! The quintessential Raleigh bungalow that looks small and cozy on the outside, but is wonderfully spacious and inviting on the inside. Kevin and Hadley are very welcoming and friendly. They responded to any questions before and during my stay very quickly, and they were kind enough to leave me a welcoming gift of snacks and drinks when I arrived!

    There were a small group of us who came into town for a wedding and this was the perfect home for us that weekend. Each one of us enjoyed the stay immensely and couldn't believe what a gorgeous home it is!

  • Great stay! Excellent location, clean and spacious home, and well-equipped kitchen. Slept five comfortably for two nights. Lovely, light-filled living and dining rooms. Blooming roses in backyard. Home was exactly as described in the listing. This was our first Airbnb experience, and it was a good one!

    We're so happy we made your first airbnb experience a good one! Thanks for the feedback on the fire pit, and we'll fix that - it really helps us to know if there's anything that needs looking at, so thank you!

  • Truly a special place to stay for families. Location is wonderful. We walked with our whole family, 5 year old and stroller as well, to NOFO for an incredible meal. Then, the next day, a short drive for breakfast at Big Ed's followed by the Marbles Museum, then Pullam Park. This was just a stop on the way to our vacation, but could have been a vacation by itself. The house is really perfect for families with children, with 2 play areas and a nursery, and full, nice kitchen. We loved it.

  • We had a wonderful stay at Kevin and Hadley's beautiful home over the weekend of the Raleigh marathon in April 2014. The entire experience, beginning with our conversations with the owners during the booking process all the way up to and after our stay, was easy and enjoyable. Kevin and Hadley were responsive to our questions prior to our stay and even emailed to check in on how things were going during the weekend of our stay. Their home was clean, comfortable and quaint... truly a home away from home. Thanks to Kevin and Hadley for making our first experience with airbnb such a pleasant one!

  • Our family had a great weekend stay at the Earabino's. The location was perfect for us. We visited our new grandchild and our niece visited NC State. The downstairs bedroom was convenient for my 88 year old mother. Hope we will be back!

  • I stayed at Kevin and Hadley's place for a weekend with a large group of graduate students. The house is lovely and has a lot of great amenities for a group: a nice kitchen and plenty of bedrooms, bathrooms, and hangout space. It's also quite beautiful, with older details and a lot of nice art. The hosts were easy-going and very accommodating; checkin and checkout were particularly simple with their passcode system. I would stay there again!
