I love nature and the outdoors! I am an amateur photographer, hiker, and outright adventure seeker. I like to be on the go and live my life to the fullest.
We almost didn't go because of the winter storm that hit the east coast, but Brian kept us updated about the weather & said he would refund us if we couldn't make it. However we're glad we decided to after all. Brian's place was nicely situated near downtown Raleigh (about a 10-15 min drive) and was very private with a separate entrance & living area. Unfortunately this made it so we never saw Brian at all (which I like to do)...but he was always available by phone. The place was cozy and he provided snacks and brochures. He also found an ironing board & iron when we needed it. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone...but with one tiny stipulation. If you are tall (more than 6'2) you might find the ceilings a little too low in the shower. If not, then this is a great find for you and we too would stay there again if ever in Raleigh!
Great location and place! The basement was very clean and homey. We had zero issues but if we did, our host left us ways to contact him. We will defiantly stay here again!
Brian's apartment was perfect. The space was clean and comfortable and as a host Brian went above and beyond. He accommodated our late arrival time, had the spare bed all set up for us and left us some snacks. Highly recommend!
A fully furnished ground level space with the fixings for a light breakfast provided. We found it quiet and very private, with good communications from our host.
Four star accommodations at an one star price. Will be back. Thanks Brian!
The apartment was as pictured and Brian is very helpful and answered our many questions about the area. The apartment was much nicer than a hotel room and even has a washer and dryer. Having a yard to stretch out at was also a plus. We would stay again if we come back to Raleigh
Brian was a wonderful host! I only met him briefly when he so kindly brought some amazing soup down for me one night and we had a great lil chat. The room was huge, clean and warm and the bed comfortable. I would definitely stay again if I'm back in the area. Good luck with all your future plans Brian!
Brian's place was perfect. He was flexible for my very late arrival, the internet was fast and the couch was comfy. I was spending 3 days at Teamworks for a dog agility trial, there was plenty of space for my crates, a nice neighborhood to walk the dogs and a quiet environment to rest after a long day. I never met Brian, but we kept in touch via email and he was very attentive to my needs. Will absolutely stay again if I am in Raleigh.
Very nice, comfortable, and spacious basement unit, with a gracious and attentive host. Thanks Brian!
Brian's place is an excellent place to stay, especially if you would you like to possibly have visitors over, since the entrance is separate from the entrance to the house so you won't be making a nuisance of yourself. Brian also takes very good care of both the place (an immeasurable bonus for someone with a touch of arachnophobia like me) and guests (like making himself available at very short notice when I was having problems with the tv), and with the availability of wireless internet access and the just newly installed video on demand there is no shortage of ways to keep yourself entertained if the weather should fail you (or, in my case, the car's navigation system). It's definitely a place I'd go back to if I returned to the area!
Brian was very friendly, considerate, tidy, and went out of his way to make us a lovely New Mexico red chili sauce! He is welcome to come back any time.
