I very much enjoyed my stay at David and Ruth's. They were friendly and helpful. Lots of fresh fruit at breakfast; clean towels provided on the third day of my four-day stay; clean room and bathroom. When I came back one evening with my cardigan dripping wet after a torrential downpour, they offered me a glass of wine and ran the cardigan through the dryer. The more I use Airbnb the more I like it.
It was a delight to stay with Ruth and Dave at their lush property with its beautiful grounds and views.They were most cordial in welcoming us and seeing to our settling in and they made it quite easy for us to come and go throughout the day and evening as we were in town for our daughter's graduation.
My husband Bruce and I spent 3 nights at David and Ruth’s house. Our expectations were met or exceeded on everything related to our stay. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable. As one other visitor had described it, we felt like we were in a tree house when we looked out the window from our second floor bedroom onto a beautifully wooded backyard. We awoke each morning to freshly baked scones for breakfast and had wonderful conversations with David over breakfast. We will definitely seek out David and Ruth’s house on our next visit to Chapel Hill.
David & Ruth are great hosts. I spent two days there for taking an interview for the UNC. The business school was very close, which took just 5 min walk. But the house is so quiet that I can sleep very well. Everything I need for stay is well prepared in the room, and they cooked breakfast for me, which were so delicious. And also they took me to neighbor town to see together. I experienced real home stay with them. If I visit UNC again, I definitely choose to stay David's house.
Thank you so much, and I hope to see them again.
A great experience. Dave and Ruth were very welcoming and informed about the area. They provided a full breakfast each day and always took time to talk. The proximity to UNC campus made travel that much easier. A lovely family and a beautiful part of the world.
I had a really great time staying with David and Ruth. I came to Chapel Hill alone to interview at UNC and they made my stay comfortable and welcoming. They also make a wonderful breakfast! I would absolutely recommend David and Ruth to anyone looking for a relaxing and friendly place to stay while visiting UNC.
We enjoyed staying with David and Ruth. They were very easy to get in touch with, the place was clean, and they were very friendly as well. Breakfast was delicious and the location was very accessible to UNC's campus.
A great experience! Dave and Ruth are superb hosts and provided a clean, comfortable, and overall fantastic experience using my overnight stay in Chapel Hill. The home is very close to UNC and all the fun this great town has to offer. Highly recommended!
We enjoyed staying with Ruth and David again, their home is cozy, clean and convenient, and they are friendly and welcoming hosts. It's great to have a home away from home when we come to Chapel Hill.
This was our first AirBnb experience, and we couldn't have chosen better hosts. Our stay with Dave and Ruth was very pleasant. The room that they offer is cozy and very clean, the breakfast was plentiful and the conversation was very pleasant. Dave and Ruth are very respectful hosts, non-intrusive but at the same time very friendly and helpful. There are a lot of magazines and books in the room about the area, and I took the time to browse a few, which really help me get a better feel of Chapel Hill.
Their back yard (a wooded lot) was such a quiet place to have my morning coffee and read a newspaper (both provided by Dave).
This was the first stop on our road trip and it set the tone for a pleasant vacation.
Thank you for your hospitality, Dave and Ruth!
David and Ruth were very nice to host, they are both respectful, caring and thoughtful. It was easy to communicate with them from the beginning to their departure. They were very easy going guests who left their room nice and tidy. We would host them again any time. Thank you so much.
Ruth and David were lovely friendly guests who it was our pleasure to host. They were incredibly thoughtful and even brought maple syrup and balloons for our children! We had some nice chats together and were so glad the sun shone for them!
David and Ruth were wonderful guests. It was so nice to get to see them again. They are very easy to please and fit right in with the hustle and bustle of our household. Sorry the weather didn't cooperate on the morning of their bird banding but I think they had a nice visit anyway. I highly recommend them to other hosts.
Ruth and David were delightful to host, respectful, caring and thoughtful. I would host them again in the blink of an eye. Thank you so much.
David and Ruth were very easy going and respectful guests who left their room nice and tidy after their departure. We especially appreciated their Air B&B wisdom that will enable us to better serve future guests. We would look forward to a return visit by them in the future and look forward to visiting their home when we're touring North Carolina.
It was a pleasure to have Dave and Ruth stay with us. They made themselves at home and are welcome any time.
It was a pleasure to meet Dave and Ruth, they are interesting, kind hearted and enjoyable company. You could not hope to find better guests. 5 stars all around!
David and Ruth were great guests. I'd recommend them and hope to see them again.
The perfect guests! Incredibly polite and communicative, they are the kind of guests anyone would love to have!
David and Ruth were great guests - Clean, thoughtful, courteous and tolerant of our chickens (I think they made friends with them.) Wish they could have stayed longer than one night, but we're glad they were able to use our cabin as a get-away, and hope they'll come back again.
Walking distance to the Chapel Hill campus or the botanical gardens! Quiet neighborhood. The guest room has everything you need - comfortable double bed, small closet, sink in the room with a full bath across the hallway. Dave & Ruth are great hosts and the location can't be beat!
