About this listing
New King bed with lovely new linens, and just-reupholstered comfy chairs in the sitting area. Come and enjoy!
NEW! NOW IT'S A KING-SIZED BED!
This large, post-and-beam room over our garage is light and airy with your own deck and private entrance. (Not handicapped accessible.) Ours is a small, quiet, wooded neighborhood 2.5 miles from the University of North Carolina and the UNC Medical Center, as well as the many wonderful restaurants and exquisite beauty of Chapel Hill and Durham (14 miles east). [Raleigh (30 mi.)/RTP (15 mi) and RDU Airport (20 mi.) are within easy driving distance as well.]
We are also just east of Southern Village, in south Chapel Hill. In fact, for hearty, adventurous souls, there is a lovely hike through the woods which will take you to our local organic Co-op grocery store, Weaver Street Market, the Weaver Street cafe, the Lumina movie theatre, many small shops and several great restaurants. We are walkable (for the hearty!) to all of those places and their amenities.
Our 720 square foot room holds a king bed (new!!) and a futon (which can sleep 2). We also have a roll-away cot for a 5th (small) person. There is a private bath with tub and shower. A dining area in one corner holds a "dorm" fridge and everything you need for kitchen basics (see photos). All towels and linens are of high quality 100% cotton; all are line-dried, so your head will sleep on a pillow of fresh air and sunshine. I stock the fridge and table with lovely treats. You'll have to come to find out exactly what! And . . . a couple of friends and I make candles when we find the time :) and I try to have them in the candelabra above the dining table for your (careful!) use and enjoyment. When my stock of hand-made beeswax tapers is sufficient, they are available for sale, enabling you to leave with a memento of your stay.
The room has its own separate heating/air conditioning unit, so you are able to meet your specific needs. (Also plenty of extra quilts and pillows.)
There is wireless internet available.
Easy parking just at the base of the stairway to your room.
Please make contact with me before attempting to book the room. When emailing inquiries please let me know how many people would be coming and a little about yourself or your trip.
** PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO BOOK THE APARTMENT BEFORE COMMUNICATING VIA THE AIRBNB SITE. I need to "get to know" you before booking: a little something about who you are and what you do; what brings you to the area. Thanks.
** PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO BOOK THE APARTMENT BEFORE EMAILING ME AS I WILL NOT ACCEPT REQUESTS WITHOUT FIRST GETTING TO KNOW WHO WILL BE STAYING IN OUR GUEST ROOM **
Please park off to the side of the driveway near the path to your room such that another car can pass. Please do not block access to the garage.
