When you're traveling, nothing beats staying in a clean and beautifully decorated home ... except maybe a clean, beautifully decorated home with a private swimming pool and a pool table! If that sounds good to you, then we welcome you to rent our place and have a wonderful stay here in Chapel Hill. The house sleeps six adults, has a fully equipped kitchen, private pool, pool table, big screen tv, washer and dryer, and plenty of parking. Please read on for all the details!

The space
**IMPORTANT: This is NOT a party house! If you are planning on late nights with loud music, this is not the place for you. We are in a neighborhood of family homes and our first priority is respecting and maintaining a peaceful atmosphere for everyone. **

This home is completely private and set back from the street on close to an acre lot with many old shade trees and pines, but only minutes from downtown Carrboro, Chapel Hill, UNC Campus, and the UNC Hospitals. It was built in 1967 and updated at some point over the years, but still retains the charm and character of an older home. It is very open, light, and airy with wood floors and lots of windows. There are large common spaces, but also 3 individual bedrooms for sleeping and private time. The kitchen has everything you could need, including pots and pans (even a giant pot for pasta, a wok, and crepe pans!), place settings for 8, serving ware, wine glasses, a coffee maker, microwave, toaster, blender, giant refrigerator/freezer, and brand new oven. You'll also find all the necessities for cooking: flour, sugar, spices, oil and vinegar, peanut butter and jelly, tea and coffee, drink mixes, tons of snacks, fruit, etc. (We are also more than happy to have the kitchen completely stocked with your favorite foods when you arrive. Just let us know and we'll give you the details!) There is a dining table that will seat six as well as a small antique breakfast table in the kitchen that will seat 4 on little attached seats... it's hard to explain but pretty cute! The main living room has 2 couches, a chair, flat screen tv and then there is another sitting area that has an *insanely* comfortable oversized beanbag chair and wonderful swinging chair. Next to both of these sitting spaces is a small pool table, and right out back is your own private swimming pool! The pool is swimmable from May to October, but during the rest of the year you can still use the picnic table out back or play horse shoes in the 1/2 acre shaded yard. There is one full bathroom with a shower and tub, a half bath connected to one of the bedrooms, and an outside shower by the pool. (If you've never tried it, an outside shower in the winter is awesome!) Like I said, we are not even 5 minutes away from the restaurants and shops in the charming town of Carrboro (called the Paris of the south, though that's kind of a stretch!) and 10 minutes to downtown Chapel Hill, the University, and the UNC Hospitals. We are close to University Lake (rent a boat and go fishing), many hiking paths, and Carrboro's weekly farmer's market. The entrance to the highway is only 2 minutes away, or catch the bus and take free public transportation all over town. If you are here to visit colleges other than UNC, we're just 20 minutes from Duke, and 35 minutes from NC State.

Guest access
Guests have access to the entire house, washer and dryer, pool area, and back yard and parking area in the driveway. This is a private home and no one but the guests will be there.

Other things to note
This is an older home so small quirks and irregularities are to be expected. It is in beautiful condition, but just please understand that everything is not as pristine as you would find in a brand new home. (Some doors stick, there are a few squeaky spots in the wood floors, etc.)

Chapel Hill, North Carolina, United States

To be perfectly honest, the immediate neighborhood is nothing to get excited about. There are some office buildings and private homes, but the adorable town of Carrboro is just a couple minutes away, as well as Chapel Hill on the other side. We have a very detailed and up-to-date book of recommendations for you with a lot of great restaurants, bars and breweries, cute shops, hiking trails and more.

I am an artist who lives in beautiful Chapel Hill, NC. These days I concentrate on jewelry design and I am very fortunate to have a large art studio on my property where I make all of my designs. I grew up on the east coast just outside of Boston and spent the past 18 yrs living in San Francisco. I have traveled all over the world - my longest stays being in France and Germany where I lived for a couple of years. I speak fluent French, mediocre Spanish and kindergarten level German! Some things I really love: all animals, cooking exotic foods, going out to new restaurants, gardening, creative projects, live music, playing with toddlers, traveling, meeting new people, coffee coffee and more coffee, and HOME! My husband, Jonny, is a native Californian. He was born and raised in the beautiful redwoods of Northern California and had never left the west coast until we moved to North Carolina 3 years ago. Jonny is just about the friendliest and most caring person you will ever meet. He makes friends wherever we go and is the first person to jump in and help when someone needs a hand. Some of his favorite things are: his daughter Madison, the SF giants, the Golden State Warriors, the UNC Tarheels, building something from scratch, cooking new foods, the Lost Coast, animals, being in nature, and a good, cold beer!
