About this listing

Second floor condo w/ views of life-size chess set, fish pond and shuffle board. Condo has a queen size bed, games, art books, high speed wifi, cable w/ HBO and full kitchen. Pool is on the east end of the courtyard (it is open, but pardon the lack of landscaping). Courtyard also features charcoal grills at the tower base and a chimnea in the "grotto." Walk to Central Park neighborhood, downtown or east campus/ninth street.

The space

This is my home, so please treat it with respect. I have a cat, he WILL NOT be staying with you, but if you very allergic, I'm afraid you will not be comfortable.

Guest access

You'll get the whole condo, access to first aid, basic cooking supplies (some spices, oil and vinegar) and there will be some closet space available.

Interaction with guests

If I'm in town, then I'm just a phone call a way. If not, one of my family members will act as an emergency contact.

We enjoyed our stay at Rachel's place. It is close to downtown Durham, and in a quiet neighborhood. Communication with Rachel was quick and easy. The apartment was clean and tidy. The inner courtyard of the condo complex is very peaceful. We were disappointed to discover that the pool was under renovation, so we couldn't swim. Overall an easy stay, thank you, Rachel.

Rachel's place was perfect for my needs. The online description is very accurate so you'll be very happy if what you see on line works for you. I have not used AirBnB a lot and my biggest concern is that the check-in process will be difficult. Checking in with Rachel was literally easier than checking in to a hotel.

We had a great stay at Rachel's place. There was lots of room in the living space and bedroom. The location was perfect for getting around downtown Durham and Duke.

I'm an architectural designer and avid people watcher. I like to walk and eat my way through a place and feel honored to both host someone in my city or explore yours.
