The space

Our spacious, 1940s craftsman-style home is approximately 2200 sq. ft, with 4 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, a garage, and fenced in backyard. You will share the home with my fiancé and I, as well as our boxer. The entire house has recently been fully renovated inside and out with freshly painted walls, newly finished hardwoods, brand new stainless steel appliances, and newly tiled bathrooms and kitchen! You will have full access to the living room, kitchen, front porch, deck, laundry room, and fenced in backyard, in addition to your own private room and full bathroom. There is free parking on the street in front of the house and occasionally in the driveway.

Your private, sunny room and full bathroom are tucked away towards the back of the house, where you will be able to sleep through the night out of earshot from the front door, living room, or kitchen. Blinds are on the window in case you want to snooze, but you may wake up to the smell of coffee (you are welcome to join me for a cuppa and the morning newspaper if you like)!

We want your stay to be cozy and comfy! Linens and toiletries will be provided, and we will do our best to accommodate any additional requests you may have during your stay.

We are also happy to recommend places to go, things to do, restaurants/bars/breweries. In case you didn't know, Durham is quite a destination for foodies of all tastes!

Julia is very knowledgeable about the area and provided great restaurant recommendations. The bedroom was very private, clean, and spacious. Would definitely stay again -- thanks Julia!

Julia's home is very inviting and comfortable. I really liked the décor because it was modern , yet timeless. This home had everything we needed and some. Plus it's in a great location which is in walking distance to the heart of Durham.

Julia was an absolutely lovely host! Her home is large, clean and comfortable. She's always keen to make sure you're enjoying your stay. Her dogs are incredibly sweet, and Julia even left cookies on the table! I couldn't have asked for anything more and would certainly recommend her to anyone staying in Durham.

The room+house were beautiful and Julia was an amazing host. It was great having easy access to downtown Durham, and Julia even provided snacks for the morning of my checkout.

Julia accomodated us on extremely short notice, thankfully! My boyfriend and I did a roadtrip and stayed for the night. A 15 min walk to town made it super convenient. Julia's home was clean & lovely; she offered breakfast & refreshments... Very sweet. Cozy clean bed in a room with a private bath. She graciously gave lots of recommendations for places to go! If we make our way back through Durham, we would totally stay again!

Julia's place was exactly as she described it. The bed was nice and comfy, the private bath was clean and Julia made it easy to come and go. It was extremely hot during my stay so I didn't get to enjoy the outdoor attractions in Durham but Julia gave great recommendations for restaurants in the downtown area. No shortage of good food. Her place is super close to all the amenities that downtown Durham has to offer. Julia was extremely responsive to any concerns. Julia has a roommate who I didn't see much. If you are looking for a home base to discover Durham I will recommend Julia's place.
