This stunning forested retreat is perched on top of a breathtaking creekside vista, minutes from downtown and interstate 40, convenient to RDU, Durham, and the Triangle. Convenient to all of Chapel Hill's attractions, this spacious, light-filled home is minutes from shopping and dining, nightlife, and family-friendly activities. It is ideal for families, large or small groups, couples, and business travelers.
Our house is very conveniently located to UNC Chapel Hill, Duke University, Research Triangle Park (RTP), RDU airport, and downtown Chapel Hill and Durham. We are a 3 minute drive from interstate 40 and the Timberlyne and Chapel Hill North shopping centers, cinema, and plentiful restaurants and grocery stores. We are also only 3 miles from downtown and Franklin Street, and walking distance to 86/MLK Blvd and the free bus stop that will take you all over Chapel Hill and Carrboro.
You will love our home because of the beautiful views, quality and cleanliness of the amenities, rare access to the creek, and convenient location. And while we have preserved some of the original features that make the home unique, the entire house was recently renovated and virtually everything is NEW!
Completely updated with new quartz countertops, beds and bedding, fixtures and furnishings throughout, no detail has been overlooked. From the comfortable beds to the well-stocked chef’s kitchen and full-size washer/dryer, to the large fire pit with seating creekside, fully equipped grill with picnic table and plenty of seating outside under the trees, you will find every convenience to make your stay in this beautiful setting complete. After a glass of wine while you take in the scenery on the private patio, or a bbq on the deck, follow the path lighting down the steps to the creek-side, and enjoy roasting marshmallows over a bonfire in the fire pit.

A 1970's split-level house, it has been updated to separate the first and second levels of the house, creating two completely separate fully updated apartments. We live in the upper level apartment, and guests have the entire ground level apartment with private entrance to themselves. The upstairs is also available on Airbnb, and can accommodate another 6 guests, great for larger gatherings. We have recently added a tiny house to the property that can accommodate up to 4 guests. You can find all of our listings here: https://www.airbnb.com/users/127721020/listings?user_id=127721020&s=50.
At the back of the house overlooking the creek, guests have access to a private covered patio, along with a deck and a fire pit beside the creek. Besides the patio, the rest of the outdoor space is shared space with us and guests staying in other spaces available on the property.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you would find in a luxury residence, such as brand new stainless steel pots and pans, coffee maker, microwave, 4-slice toaster oven, basic cooking kit, bake-ware, and everything else you could think of to entertain your guests.
The three bedrooms all have deluxe mattresses (two queen, one full and one twin) with new bed sheets, plentiful organic allergen-free pillows, blankets, comforters and duvets. The living room has a brand new futon couch that can easily be opened into a comfortable queen size bed that sleeps two additional people for a total of nine guests. A pack-n-play portable crib is available upon request. The flat screen TV and Roku comes with Netflix, Amazon Prime TV/movies, and more. The place also comes with high-speed wireless internet.
The bathroom has a full bathtub and shower, hair dryer, and basic toiletries like shampoo and conditioner, lotion and soap. There is a full-size washer and dryer so that you can take care of your own laundry when on a longer stay, and an iron and ironing board can be found in the laundry closet above the washer/dryer.
The backyard patio and deck is beautiful. Surrounded by mature trees, it features a patio set and bbq so that you can truly enjoy those beautiful spring, summer and fall days outside.
You have access to the entire separate downstairs level of the home, with the exception of the utility closet off the hallway, and the locked doors leading to the upstairs and a storage closet. We may have a few of our things tucked away in the corners of bedroom closets or dressers, but you'll find the space clean and uncluttered, with plenty of storage for your stay.
I will defer to the guest's preference. Whenever possible, I like to meet the guests upon their arrival. We live above the Airbnb space so we are always happy to answer any questions or address any concerns our guests have.
We do have one very friendly indoor-outdoor cat that comes and goes to the upstairs space where we live, but is not allowed in the Airbnb space. He loves to meet new people so feel free greet him if you see him outside.
Also, while it is clearly stated under Amenities, and shown in the pictures, guests should note that the space has only one bathroom. There are no additional half or full baths.
My home is a home of inclusion. I don't care what color you are, what religion you follow, where you are from, or who you choose to love. If you have kindness in your heart you are welcome here.
We live in a quiet residential area and have neighbors in close proximity. We look forward to hosting guests who will treat our neighborhood and our home as their home. This means that respectful friendly gatherings are ok but residential quiet hours after 8pm must be respected. Wild parties are strictly forbidden and any sign of a disturbance, or loud noise after 8pm will result in withholding part or all of the security deposit, and in extreme cases you will be kicked out and ticketed.
This is the ground-level apartment of a two-level house, with a second apartment above you where we live and sometimes other guests stay. Noise travels between the two floors so we ask that you be mindful of your voices and other noise, particularly after dark. Please understand and respect that this is a family neighborhood and we have a young child.
Guests not included in the original booking party may not stay overnight on the property without advance approval, and any other people invited by guests will be the sole responsibility of the guests.
Do not engage in illegal activities anywhere on the property.
If you break or damage something, please let me know and arrange for its replacement or repair.
Do not leave any food out that will attract uninvited pests. Our home is pest-free and we intend to keep it that way with your help. :-)
Please lock the door at night and when you leave.
Help us care for the earth by turning off light and heater/AC when you're away.
Please note that we have a very friendly indoor-outdoor cat that lives on the property but he is not allowed in the Airbnb space. You may meet our cat ("Lucky") or one of the other neighborhood cats in the outdoor spaces on the property.
Please keep the property and all furnishings in good order, and leave the premises in the same condition as it was found.
Please advise us if you want to enjoy late checkout. If it's possible, there is no charge, otherwise please respect the 11am checkout since the cleaning crew needs time to prepare the place for the next guests. If you do a late check out without notice, a penalty fee of $50 per extra hour after 11am will apply.
If there is a storm or hurricane, no refunds will be given unless the state or local authorities order mandatory evacuations.
Smoking is not allowed anywhere on the property.
Please remove your shoes when entering our home.
Thank you and enjoy!
My name is Corin and I'm originally from northern California by way of the northeast, but am happy to call Chapel Hill and the Triangle home for more than 5 years now.
