Single story, 2-bedroom (plus a Queen size inflatable mattress), 2-bath townhome. Quiet, friendly neighborhood near University of North Carolina campus.

The space

We live in a quiet, comfortable, single-story townhome, about two miles from the University of North Carolina center and a 20-minute drive to Duke University. Free city buses are within a block. Our home has a wood-burning fireplace, central air conditioning, electric heat, fully equipped kitchen with a small eating area, a dining area with six chairs, two full baths with showers and tubs, and nice, comfortable furnishings. We have two bedrooms with a queen bed in one and a double bed in the other. We also have a queen sized inflatable mattress. Our third bedroom is an office with computer, monitors, printer, and scanner in case you need to work while here. (We have 300Mbps speed internet currently.) We have a small private patio with table and chairs, a grill, and a few potted herbs. There are parking spaces very near the door. We are within walking distance to restaurants and shops. This is a good base from which to explore North Carolina and Virginia, cities like Washington DC, or visit the Atlantic coast or the Blue Ridge Mountains. Because it is our home, not a vacation rental, you will find all kitchen needs, including pantry staples, linens, plants, books, cleaning supplies, etc. Send us a message and tell us about yourself. If you have any questions, please ask! Car exchange possible.

Guest access

This is a single story home. There is one short step to enter front door or back door. There are no internal steps. Bathrooms are not handicapped accessible. We have a keypad to enter the front door--no key required.


We do not now have pets, but your small and well-behaved ones are welcome. No smoking inside, please. Just be a good neighbor (we love ours and want to continue on good terms with them), be neat and clean up after yourself, basic things like that. And have a good time!

Our neighbors are quiet and friendly, ranging in age from school-aged children to retirees. From our house you can access a nice paved walk/bike path that will take you to Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, coffee shops and bakeries, restaurants, bank, all in about 15 minute walk. A few more minutes of walking will get you to cinemas, major grocery shopping, a small indoor mall, Planet Fitness, and a wonderful public library. With a car (or bike or sturdy walking) you can reach downtown Chapel Hill, the UNC campus, museums, planetarium, bars, music venues, and the fun artsy town of Carrboro.

Getting around

Car exchange is negotiable. Also, the city buses are free and near our home. There is also a bus that will take you to Durham, home of Duke University, a foodies and music haven, though those buses are infrequent.

Member description
We are a semi-retired couple who travel about half of the year. Deborah recently retired from a career in public health research where she was fortunate to travel much of the world. Jerry works for IBM part-time and can work wherever there is stable internet. Now that our work life is compatible with travel and we have few family obligations, we travel as much as we can fit in. We especially love Mexico, Australia, the Southwest of the US, Southeast Asia and any new place we haven't been yet! We enjoy slow travel where we get a chance to visit local markets, take long walks in beautiful places, meet the neighbors, listen to music (and dance!) and maybe even learn a few words of a new language. We are neat freaks, non-smokers, rarely drink alcohol (and never yours), intrepid gardeners, and scrupulously honest. We also care for pets if that is required in your home. We miss having our own. Our home in Chapel Hill welcomes you!
