The Space

private room, midtown Raleigh, 10 minutes to downtown, Convention Center and museums, convenient to four malls, 18 hole community golf course within walking distance, free community pool during Summer, near city park with community center, basketball, skateboarding and gym.

We have two rooms available to rent out for a family or separately for different guests. Inquire for specifics. Both rooms share a hallway bathroom with shower/bathtub.

Our Cherry Red room has a queen size bed, full size closet, study desk, reading chair, chester doors, and bedside stand. The second story bedroom with a corner window provides a beautiful view of the deck and garden, nice to watch the sunset.

Our Blue Rose room has a queen size bed, study desk, full size closet and bedside stand and also sleeps two comfortably.

Downstairs we have a sunroom with adjoining outside deck. The tv is in the family room with wii and kerioka available and a wide variety of family friendly dvd and blueray movies. We do not have cable but have over 30 hd channels available with outside antenna. Continental breakfast is available during weekdays but make sure to stay on a weekend to enjoy Thelma's delicous home cooked breakfasts. Free wireless wi-fi available (15 mbps).

For those with children we have a carpeted play room upstairs with dollhouse, legos, and an assortment of board games.

A community pool is available during Summer and is only just a short walk down the street. However there are several pools and recreation centers close by. Check our guidebook for locations.

The city busline stops just outside the subdivision. There are many restaurants and major stores within minutes of our house. Our favorites are the Sweet Tomato Restaurant, a local Vietnamese restaruant and also Sushi. Costco and Sams are also nearby.

My wife loves to garden so our small hillside backyard is full of color. We have several bird feeders and have regular guests of bluebirds, cardinals, finches and wrens.

  • This is a very nice home in good area for commuting around town. Dan and Thelma were great host and provided everything needed for a good breakfast with juice and coffee. They were also helpful in providing directions to shopping and restaurants.

  • We are a military family and being relocated to Raleigh and we contacted Thelma and Dan at the last minute for somewhere to stay while house hunting. They were very responsive and accommodating from the first communication. Dan met us at the door when we arrived and immediately asked to help with out things. He gave us a tour and introduced us to family and showed us to our room. Thelma is a wonderful cool and does a fantabulous job with breakfast. On Sunday morning she had homemade pineapple waffles, fresh fruit bowls with yogurt, two different sausages, juice and coffee. They offered us a glass of wine in the evening as well during good conversation. The house was very clean, they had toiletries and everything taken care of and even Snowy was very well behaved. Overall we had a fabulous stay and will look to stay here again in the near future if available. Thank you so much!

  • We enjoyed our stay with Dan and Thelma! It was our first time visiting Raleigh and they had great suggestions for restaurants, museums, etc. to check out. They provided fresh breakfast each morning and even made us yummy muffins on our last morning. The room we stayed in was very clean and comfy. We would definitely recommend booking with them!

  • I second all the good reviews! Charming , hospitable, host and hostess, continental breakfast is generous including on the weekend fresh baked muffins, waffles and even Canadian bacon . Dan and Thelma are helpful in every way, be it the car, where to go, even checking my return flight for on time the last day. Snowy is a very well behaved precious dog. House is charming and spotless. I am sold on traveling with Airbnb. I fear that soon you will not be able to book this bnb because all of us who go to Raleigh will keep them booked up!!!!! If you are going to Raleigh this is the place to stay!

    Their place is clean and comfortable. They were very welcoming with Thelma even cooking us a fresh batch of muffins for breakfast. Dan was very happy to tell us places to go around town and how to get there, even offering us a glass of wine.. Above and beyond.

About
We will be celebrating our 22nd anniversary this August! Our daughter will be starting her junior year at Notre Dame this Fall and we miss her a lot when she is away. Our dog, Snowy (Bichon Frise), helps to entertain us and lets us take him on several daily walks. We are active in our local church, teaching Sunday School and other volunteer activities in the community. When we travel we like to stay at bed and breakfasts. We enjoy meeting people from other cultures and countries, especially the Philippines where Thelma grew up. We try to go often to visit family and tour. In our travels we also have been to Germany, Italy, Austria, and Hawaii.
