The guesthouse is one mile North of downtown Raleigh in a quiet neighborhood. You can walk to breakfast at Yellow Dog bakery, walk to dinner at highly rated restaurants, and end your day with chocolates from local chocolatier Escazu.

The space

This 525 square-foot guesthouse is a private room above a detached garage. It has loft ceilings, generous lighting, a comfortable king-sized bed, comfortable full-sized futon, sitting area, and full-sized private bathroom. In-room Keurig coffee maker with coffee pods provided. Includes microwave, mini-frig, and plates and utensils.

Guest access

This listing has self check-in and check-out with keypad access. You will have access to the guesthouse and by default, the garage. Drop off your bags at the garage, park and then carry them upstairs. Your entry and exit will be through the large garage door that faces the alley. There is a keypad on the garage door. No cars are kept in the garage, so you will not be bothered by the garage door opening and closing. You are welcome to use the courtyard table and chairs. Just be aware we have a friendly dog (Lucy) who is prone to get excited about new guests and jump up on them a bit. She has full access to the courtyard through her doggie door. Your entry and exit will be through the garage door.

Interaction with guests

My interaction with guests will be limited. I love you of course, but I'm away working most of the time. If you need help, I'm available by text or email.

Other things to note

Be aware there is a train track nearby. Fortunately, it's mostly just a low rumble that helps put you to sleep.

If you book, you'll need to read the location directions provided for directions, parking and check-in instructions.

There are 21 steps from the ground floor to the room, and the stairwell is a bit narrow.

There is a lock on the door to the apartment, and the heavy security is provided by a deadbolt on the garage door that leads to the courtyard.

Your entry and exit during your stay will be through the garage door, which has a keypad.

Perfect for our stay, location in a quiet suburb with lots of loverly cafes, bakeries and restaurants. The room is well thought out and has everything you need - excellent.

The guesthouse might be more beautiful than it seems from the pictures. It is so relaxing and comfortable we didn't want to leave. Rebecca tends to just leave you alone, but she's available if you need anything. Also, when you book, you'll get some complicated instructions about how to get in, but don't panic! They're actually really clear and easy to follow, and we found the house and got in without any trouble whatsoever. I'd definitely stay here again.

Clean and immaculate and certainly looks just as good as in the photos. This charming room-above-a-garage had everything one could need and the bed was very comfortable. Rebecca is clearly a very thoughtful and conscientious host, and responded promptly to any queries we had. We would come back. Thank you Rebecca!

This was a fantastic space, very close to downtown. Very walkable if so inclined and super easy to also grab an uber to get somewhere if not inclined to walk. I left my car there and walked to the south end of downtown, 1.5 miles and 25 min to red hat amphitheater area and it was great. Took uber back, super easy and convenient. The place was a perfect little hideaway and a great value I thought. Excellent host and space and I'd definitely use again.

Rebecca's place was very cute & quaint! The perfect place for my short stay in Raleigh. The self-check in is super convenient, and I loved that there were several places to sit and stretch out. It was also nice having a mini-fridge, coffee maker & microwave. Very fresh and clean, safe neighborhood.
