Thalea's place was lovely and comfortable. Nice spacious house with very comfortable quiet bedroom. The house is on a 2 acre wooded property with beautiful trees and birds. Very peaceful environment. Thalia provided all the comforts and amenities necessary. Overall, highly recommend if you need a place to stay in Durham.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at Thalea's home. She was accommodating on our arrival and departure times given our very early and very late flights. The house is really comfortable and the property is beautiful- essentially a suburban nature preserve. I travel to Durham semi-regularly and would be very glad to stay with Thalea again.

Thalea was a wonderful host! She was helpful and hospitable. We felt right at home. The location was nice and quiet. It's an easy drive around Raleigh-Durham/Chapel Hill.

Thalea was kind enough to take my reservation at the last minute…the very last minute. This was my first experience with Airbnb and because of Thalea's concern for my comfort and the overall experience, it will not be my last. She was so genuinely hospitable and greeted me as soon as I drove into the drive, much like family or a friend would do. Her home was very warm and comfortable. The place was spotless with a great deal of 50's sprawling ranch charm. The bedroom and private bath were large and quite comfortable. Thalea made me feel comfortable in her home as well as allowed me to catch up on some work. She was a great hostess and I would recommend her home for someone on a short or long stay in Durham. It is not only very quiet and peaceful but it is very convenient to Durham, Duke, Chapel Hill and UNC and some great restaurants.

Thalea was a fantastic host! She was understanding of us coming in pretty late every night (generally after 2am) and had great recommendations on local hangs. Her house was extremely clean and welcoming, with a location that made it extremely easy to get to and from downtown. We hope to stay with her when we go to Moogfest again next year!

Thalia was a very friendly and welcoming host. She had a lovely home on a quiet street that was very conveniently located for all of our activities. We look forward to staying with her if we find ourselves in Durham in the future. Thank you!

10/10 would stay again. I've stayed with Thalea for two months with my wife and son (1.5 yrs old). She is a very warm and helpful host, and really goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome. There are many things that I've enjoyed about our stay, and made for an excellent experience overall (e.g., occasional dinner parties, the nice neighborhood, relaxing outside on the deck, watching birds and deers in the garden). Thalea is also great with children, and I really enjoyed how she quickly became good friends with my son. Furthermore, I was surprised that the listing is actually quite large, and also includes a private living area and kitchenette (i.e., freezer, cabinets, workspace).

Hi everyone. I hope you will enjoy your stay in my home. I work full time as a nurse and part time in the yachting industry. I enjoy yard work, home projects and love to cook. There is so much to do in Durham which is 6 minutes away. I would love to show you around and have you as my guest in my home!
