The front porch, living room, dining room and kitchen will be yours to use as needed. The kitchen has a coffee maker, microwave, electric stove and oven and fridge. You can store whatever you need to in the fridge and freezer. Just let me know and space will be made.

You may have noticed in the photos that I have a now 12 year old corgi, Wrigley is his name. Very friendly and happy. He will be around to greet you and say hello.

This was my first time experiencing Airbnb and Carissa's hospitality and friendliness eased my concerns as soon as I walked through the door. Closer to Duke than I thought and very close to downtowns many great restraunts and bars. If visiting Duke or Durham again I'll definitely be staying here again!

Carissa's place was exactly as described. She was warm and friendly, greeting me at the door upon my arrival. The room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable. The location was great and I only wish I could have stayed longer!

It's my first Airbnb experience and it is wonderful. Carissa is super nice, I feel very comfortable talking to her. In addition, her dog Wrigley is very friendly and adorable! I will miss them.

I was in Durham for a wedding at Duke and Carissa's place was perfect for me. I came in a little after 1:00 and she was extremely kind and helpful in showing me where everything was. She was on top of communication as well, sending me a message about a week before my stay about the basics. The futon was comfortable and location was great. Thanks, Carissa!!

Carissa was an amazing host, and my only complaint is that we didn't get to stay longer! She was extremely flexible with us getting in late after we hit traffic, and she still got up early the next morning to offer us coffee and say goodbye when we were leaving. Very clean space, and she was communicative, friendly, and if we had stayed longer we definitely would've taken advantage of all of the recommendations for food and things to do around Durham. Thanks again Carissa!

Being an airbnb host is an extension of what I do everyday. I enjoy meeting new people, learning about new places, and helping those in need. My guess is that you need a nice, clean, comfortable place to stay while you are enjoying meeting new people and exploring a new place. Well, let me help you with that.

Durham is a wonderful up and coming city and I can't wait to share with you all that I love about the city. From the Saturday Farmer's Market to the Food Trucks to the Carolina Theatre and the Durham Performing Arts Center. Just ask and I will do my best to make your stay pleasant and memorable.

Oh, and if you are lucky you may even have your own Corgi, Wrigley, to keep you company while you are here.
