  • This home was absolutely perfect for our large group of visitors from out of the country! The indoor area was spacious and full of charm and the outdoor space was beautiful, and perfect for a large BBQ we hosted. Norma was very quick and responsive with our questions and always helpful. Would absolutely recommend this place for anyone looking to host a group of people as a much cozier alternative to a block of hotel rooms.

  • The property is even more beautiful than in the pictures, and the owner is very friendly and easy to work with. I recommend this house to anyone looking to get out of the city for a few days.

    January 2014
  • This house was PERFECT for my family! I loved the landscape and the house plan. The basement was wonderful because those who wanted to stay up could without being heard by anyone else. I highly recommend this home!

About
Widowed in 2005 remarried last year. We find our condo on an island north of West Palm very comfortable but NC is home & we spend some time there. Raleigh house is too big for just we two so we have an inlaw suite. We are having fun renting the big house. From the US & Europe,weddings to reunions to holidays, we have had great tenants & we do all we can to make their stay the best possible. We love to say,"just bring your suitcase,everything else is furnished" & this is true. Everyone has been very complimentary & I have not figured outhow to get their comments on our site Will work on that.
