About this listing
Hi, I am a squirrel from Chapel Hill and am happy to offer you my conveniently located nest - which is equidistant from Durham, Chapel Hill and Raleigh -- and fully equipped with everything you may need during your stay (you can tell I love IKEA)!
Thanks for your interest in this lovely apartment!
QUIET LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION...
The apartment is located away from the main arteries (I-40 to Raleigh and 15-501 Durham-Chapel Hill) and therefore it is very quiet for this neighborhood.
The apartment can accommodate 3 persons - two in the bedroom (equipped with a Queen-size bed) and one on the living-room sofa.
Well-behaved dogs can also be accommodated, with some exceptions... the lease prohibits the following dog breeds: Rottweiler, Pit Bull Terrier, Doberman Pinscher, Akita, Chow and German Shepherd. If your dog belongs to one of these breeds, unfortunately I will not be able to host you. In addition, there will be a $20 fee per dog to cover any extra cleaning.
In addition, I cannot say "Yes" to cats, since I'm allergic to cats...
A/C is available. But I would be grateful if you remembered to turn it off when you leave the apartment. Thank you. :) Duke Energy and I are not friends (unlike me, they do not like sun power, so they pass the high cost of dirty coal onto consumers - little squirrels such as myself!).
You will have access to the entire apartment during your stay here.
Interaction with guests
You will have my phone number and access to me 24/7 with any questions you may have. I will also leave you a cheat-sheet with essential things you need to know about the apartment (i.e., wifi password, and other vital information such as how to turn on the A/C!).
You will be experiencing the best of the Research Triangle Area - one of the hottest economic growth areas in the United States - from a perfectly located home-base.
You will be 15 minutes away on foot from the bus stop taking you to Chapel Hill (a 10 minute free ride). Alternatively, Uber takes you to Durham for under $10, and to Chapel Hill for even less! Easy transfer to and from Raleigh-Durham Int'l Airport (on I-40) is also available by car (20 min) or by public transportation (1 hr 30 min). Amtrack terminal taking you to DC in little over 5 hours is a 10 min Uber ride away.
I know you will love the convenience of this location!
Other things to note
Joke of the day:
Question: how do you catch a squirrel?
Answer: you climb up into a tree and act like a nut :)
Me in the news:
how I eat a pizza, as a proper New Yorker! :)

Funny squirrel videos:
No smoking inside the apartment please. Hurts little squirrel lungs.
Please remember to turn the A/C off when you check-out.
Otherwise, be cool and enjoy!

I love meeting people from all over the world, and AirBNB is such a great way to do that. In my spare time I like to learn foreign languages, have people over for BBQs, read nonfiction (especially to understand how the world works), hike and play my guitar.
I hope to have the privilege to be your host!
