Adorable dog friendly cottage in the heart of Walltown, one of the classic neighborhoods that drive Durham's popularity. One block from Duke East Campus, three blocks from the bars and cafes of 9th street, & a short Uber or Lyft to downtown or Duke hospital. The small cottage is full of charm and character with open kitchen and living area with granite counters, tiled kitchen and bath, and back screened porch. It offers Central heat and air, dishwasher, washer/dryer.

The space
New Note 01/26/2020: Starting on this date a pet fee of $40 dollars per dog will be charged. We love furrrrr babies but they do extend the cleaning process. After a wonderful puppy stays in our home, we sanitize it with steam on soft surfaces, Clorox and Pine-sol for those guests without pets. This extends the cleaning service past a normal cleaning. As we pay our cleaning crew a living wage of $20 dollars an hour, the pet fee pays for this cleaning extension. Since Airbnb does not make this charge simple please be patient with us as we figure out the best way to add this charge without taking away instant booking. thank you

The kitchen offers a complimentary coffee and tea bar along with oatmeal and breakfast bars. If you like to cook, the cottage offers a fully stocked kitchen, filtered water pitcher (even though Durham water was just voted Best Tasting!), and complimentary cooking oils, vinegar, salt & pepper, as well as plenty of cabinet space to store all your groceries. Prefer to eat out? Durham is known for its great restaurants near the cottage.

At night you will enjoy a Nectar mattress(rated 2nd best by consumer reports) for the king bed and ceiling fans in every bedroom and living area. You will find additional fan, heater, blankets and a white noise machine in bedroom closets to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.

Wifi and TV with Chromecast are available, but NO cable/satelite. A small workspace is available in the twin bedroom.

Need something not in the cottage? Send a request and we will try to accommodate if at all possible.

This historic neighborhood is wonderfully diverse community that offers small parks and green spaces. A one block walk to the beautiful Duke East Campus. The campus connects to Main St, making a walk (or puppy walk) to downtown not only possible but enjoyable. Stroll the opposite way just three blocks to enjoy the bustle of 9th St.

Hi, I'm Joshua. I moved to Durham in 2008 to be closer to my brother and brother in law, and I immediately fell in love with Durham. Liz and I completed our family when we rescued our fluffy mutt, Joey.
During your stay
My office is 10 minutes from the cottage so unless I am with a client my availability should be open until 7p. If I am not available, a sibling or handyman will be called. After 7p emergency related inquiries only.
