House Rules
Check in is anytime after 2PM

- Come and go as you like, but please no guests after 10PM.
- Our one persnickity thing is that we don't wear outdoor shoes inside, so please bring house shoes, slippers, socks, or go barefoot.
- Smoking is OK outside, provided that you close the windows if they're open.
- Well-behaved pets are allowed for $20 extra per night, but the owner assumes responsibility for any mishaps that may occur. We currently don't have any pets ourselves so we'd love some visitors, and we have a fenced back yard for a dog.
- Weekly and monthly pricing DOES NOT include breakfast, but you are free to use our kitchen and there will be space to store groceries. If you'd like breakfast, we can perhaps work something out, but it is difficult for us to cook breakfast every day for extended times.

I visited Durham for research at Duke. The room was a great location, easy walking to a free shuttle and other bus routes, and it was a quick walk to restaurants, coffee shops, and Whole Foods, all very important to me when I stay a week for research. The room and house were wonderful to stay in. Quiet and comfortable. Everything as described in the posting. I would stay there again. Highly recommend it.

Cari and Richard are very sweet hosts. My friend and I really enjoyed the stay. They printed out an useful guide for us to explore around and made very delicious breakfast with fresh fruits, veggie juice, muffins, coffee and tea! We strongly recommend their place!
