BJ and Mike did everything to make my 2-weeks-long stay in Durham as pleasant and comfortable as possible. I felt very welcomed. The room is very nice and offers enough space. Furthermore, it's great to have a private bathroom. The neighborhood is very quiet. I highly recommend staying at this nice place!
Wonderful couple that are extremely welcoming. I was on town for a residency interview and they made the experience very enjoyable. I highly recommend them for anyone visiting Durham.
Thanks Shani. So glad to have met you on your quick trip to Durham.
BJ was a great host! (We saw Mike the first night, but he was going out of town. He was very friendly, too.) She is such a kind and generous person. She had great recommendations for places to eat and places to get coffee. As a host, she was the perfect balance of being welcoming and friendly and offering plenty of privacy. She even let us use the kitchen one night! BJ and Mike's house is in a great location, super close to downtown Durham and in walking/biking distance of a coffee shop and a few quaint little restaurants. The room and bathroom are extremely nice and comfortable. I really cannot speak highly enough of BJ. She truly made my stay in Durham an awesome experience!
BJ and Mike are so warm and welcoming. They had water and snacks for us in the room when we got there. The bathroom was stocked up on every product we could have wanted. And they had breakfast for us if we wanted. On a couple of mornings, I had to wake up super early, so Mike set up the coffee machine for me so that I could have coffee in the morning when I woke up.
The room is spacious. There is a private bathroom right across the hall. The part of the house we stayed in was kind of separate from the rest of the house, so it felt very private.
In terms of location, the house is less than a ten minute walk from a commercial street that has a really good coffee shop and some other stores. The neighborhood is great. We brought bikes with us (BJ and Mike let us keep them inside overnight) so it was really easy to get around Durham. Also, they know a lot about the area so if you want recommendations for what to do and where to go, they will have plenty of (website hidden) and Mike are awesome, and so is their house!
BJ and Mike have been very welcoming and extremely flexible. As I was there for work, I was not around much, but the time we had together was nice and I felt very comfortable at their place. Although further away from Duke Medical Campus (probably 45 min walk) than I assumed, Ninth street is really easy to reach and walk to the East Campus is about 25 min. I thought the room was really nice and I had all the privacy with my own bathroom. They offered me a bike to get around which was great to get an idea of the area. The area are family houses only; their house is a little older but nonetheless well maintained and clean. If you don't mind cats, it's a nice house and couple to stay with.
BJ and Mike were wonderful hosts for my parents during graduation weekend. They were very welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Their house is in a great location and the room and bathroom were clean and perfect for my parents' weekend stay. It's a shame graduation festivities kept us too busy to get much time to get to know them. Thanks so much!
BJ and Mike are an absolute joy to stay with. I have two new friends in Durham NC, lucky me! The room is comfortable, quiet, the bathroom is gorgeous -- and the backyard (website hidden) and Mike let me use their bike (thank you!) and so i got to ride around and see the sights, visit bakeries, yoga studios etc...
Airbnb is the way to go if you are truly looking for a "local experience." I attended the Full Frame Festival and had a great experience staying with Mike and BJ. It felt like (website hidden) was very encouraging and catered to my interest which was the film festival. Their home is very close to town and the festival activities. The room felt private with the bathroom right outside the room. It was clean and comfortable. They have cats. They were friendly too. Overall, I felt safe coming back at 2am. It was a great experience.
BJ and Mike are two of the loveliest people you will ever meet; they were endlessly generous and hospitable, thoughtful and caring. They are wonderfully smart and kind, great to talk to and will go out of their way to make you feel at home. Their two cats are very fun, their neighbourhood is lovely. You could not ask for better hosts!
The room is spacious, well lit and you have a nice bathroom to yourself as well. Their house is big and beautiful and overlooks a lovely yard which has a nice view of the woods. About a 15 minute walk to Duke East Campus, otherwise five minutes on bike/car/bus, marginally longer to West Campus, and their street is walking distance to 9th St which has a supermarket, a Wholefoods and lots of places to eat/drink. A ten minute cycle/car ride to downtown which also has lots of the above. A very convenient location.
Thanks Jac! We miss you!
BJ and Mike were lovely hosts, and have a gorgeous home in one of the loveliest neighborhoods I've had the pleasure to walk around. I am hoping to return for my next visit to Durham. Thank you BJ and Mike for your hospitality and thoughtfulness.
Thanks Nancy, we loved having you!
These intrepid Southerners who were visiting their soccer player senior braved an initial November coldsnap that brought snow and ice. A wonderfully warm connection was made as a result, (website hidden) and Mike were thoughtful, friendly, independent, clean, and generous to me, their host! We hope to deepen our budding friendship over the years.
Excellent guests, very clean, very easy to communicate with!
BJ was an excellent guest that left the apartment very clean and just as we left it. We would gladly host her again anytime!
BJ and Mike Fusaro are charming, polite and very respectful.Communicating with them has been very smooth and have very responsive with my suggestions and recommendations. The perfect tenants, I am delighted with this experience, highly recommended.
It was my pleasure to host BJ during her stay in Waltham. What energy and clarity, this woman managed to navigate the bus routes and T routes to get right here and back (website hidden)'s positive energy is contagious, she knows how to enjoy every moment to its best. The wonderful weather during her stay gave BJ a chance to really relax on the back porch reading and drinking tea. I love to see my guests truly enjoy themselves - and BJ made herself right at home - wonderful.
