Description
The Space

Perfect for work or play, this quiet, private room offers access to a comfortable bed with trundle (two single beds total), a huge antique roll-top desk and plenty of natural light. A block from Rigsbee Ave night life and walking distance to downtown This is a brand new house that we take good care of, so everything is nice and clean. Two large windows provide a great deal of natural light to the room, with wooden blinds to block it out when sleeping. The room is not large but roomy enough with one bed. If you're using the 2nd trundle bed it will be a bit tight. If you're hoping to use the desk, you'll need to re-stow the trundle under the bed to have room for the desk chair. The desk is an ideal work space with lots of room and the beds are very comfortable. There is also a comfy chair for reading by the window, as well as a modest library of books to peruse. You'll share a bathroom immediately outside your room with our roommate Sarah, whose room is at the other end of a short hall. We will make sure it is nice and tidy for your visit. We chose simple paint colors which augment the ample natural light, so the space feels very light, open and homey. This focuses the eye toward the considerable array of art Sarah and I have amassed from our travels around the world. The kitchen is excellently equipped with brand new appliances and plenty of space. It's an open floor plan with ample seating in the dining and living areas. Free cable internet/wifi (sorry, no TV). Shared kitchen, dining and living room area with plenty of seating and a stereo system and large record collection. You're welcome to play music as long as you're sensitive to time, volume, and other's tastes. You're welcome to use the fridge, storage space or any of the other kitchen appliances. You're free to use moderate amounts of the most basic cooking staples (oil, spices, condiments), but please ask before using anything of significant substance. Washer and dryer on main floor is available, just make sure you ask before using anyone else's supplies. First come, first serve! There's no smoking in the house. You're welcome to smoke outside, just throw away your butts. We love meeting new people and introducing folks to Durham. Of course, our availability may depend on how busy we are at the moment. Regardless, we are very communicative and will respond to any questions you have about Durham, the house, etc. And we'll make sure you are able to get into the house without a problem. We are in OId North Durham, a stone's throw from downtown Durham. We can't say enough about how much we love our neighborhood. There's FullSteam (craft brewery/community center), several excellent restaurants and food trucks, bars and live music, and a beautiful park, trail and the farmer's market all within a few blocks. Moreover, we're surrounded by a motley crew of amazing neighbors (both human and animal). The bulk of them are young couples, but there's a fairly diverse mix and everyone seems to get along swimmingly. You'll frequently find neighbors of all ages hanging out together on the street, front porches and in back yards. The #4 bus line passes by within two blocks of our house. I find, DATA ((website hidden)) to be the easiest bus system to use I've ever come across. All the routes are a half hour long, so every bus route converges at the bus station every half hour, making connections a breeze. That said, it's not the cheapest at $2.50/ride. The Bridge Bus ((website hidden)) runs back and forth between the happening scenes of Durham and Raleigh Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and also picks up within two blocks of our house for $16 round trip. There's also Triangle Transit buses which can get you to Chapel Hill, Raleigh, Cary, the airport, etc., though the timing is slightly more complicated ((website hidden)). Taxis are also readily available if you call. We have two cats and a dog, so if you are allergic or wary of pets, this may not be the place for you.

About Scott
Visit Profile
Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
