We had a fantastic stay here! The space is truly beautiful and was immaculate. We had been travelling a lot so it was so nice to relax on the deck and then watch movies on the very comfy sofa! We arrived late from travelling but check-in was easy and Tom was very accommodating. I saw on some reviews that as the space is connected to the main house by the laundry room there was some noise but for us it was not a problem and we really didn't hear anything. Really perfect place and great location.

The home is very tastefully decorated and in a very nice and established neighborhood. The neighbors even wave as you drive by, not really used to such nice people. The yard is beyond gorgeous and very serene. We saw bunnies and lots of pretty birds. We felt safe here. The home is very much not sound proof though. We could hear the guests in the adjoining duplex making a lot of noise very late at night. Sitting on the couch in the living room we could hear them clearly speaking all the way on the other side of the home. They also did their laundry late then we were woken up very early by a loud bang on the adjoining bedroom wall. Though no fault of the host, the walls are clearly very thin and expect to hear your adjoining neighbors. Another thing was the bathroom had a lot of pest (spiders and ants), which is probably just due to the warm season. Other then that, everything was good. For the price, you can't really beat it and surely beats staying in a cramped hotel for double the price.

Response from Tom And Colette:
Heidi, thanks for this very valuable feedback, especially about the soundproofing. This house is set up as a duplex so as you look at it from the street it looks like a long house left to right. It is separated by two double doors In the middle that are of the soundproof variety, but we have realized that when people are in the laundry room (and making a lot of noise) it can be problematic. We used to have a rule that said no laundry after 9:30 and maybe we have to go back to this because I can see how people being in the laundry room and talking loudly the sound would come into the apartment. As far as the pests… We do have an exterminator that comes in every (3) months but maybe I have to look at getting another one because we don't like to hear that pests are visible. Thanks again for this feedback and we hope to see you back at some point. tom

Tom was very flexible and welcoming. He showed us around the retreat and told us all about North Raleigh. The former photography studio was perfect in amenities, comfort, and beauty. The patio was in a private yard area that was lush with trees and wildlife. Tom even made the main house backyard and amenities available before the next guests were to arrive. We loved our stay!

We had such a wonderful trip. Tom was a fantastic host and we certainly appreciated it. The "studio" was perfect and we'd certainly recommend to others looking for a quiet and relaxing stay.

Colette and I are originally from DC and Ann Arbor Michigan (go Blue) and have both lived in Raleigh for the last 28 years. Colette is a practicing psychologist and I'm a retired photographer. We had always talked about how great it would be to have some type of B&B and this is the form it took. We both look forward to meeting you and telling you about all the cool things that happen in this robust area.
