If you desire, we can accommodate another air mattress or whatever you would like - just ask!

You will find this apartment absolutely HUGE for its downtown location, and plenty of room!

Interaction with guests
I will offer a document close to your check in date of many details about the apartment, and I will likely be there to hand you the key. Other than that, I can always be reached through airbnb messaging. As you can see from my years of positive reviews on Airbnb, I am a helpful host that tries to offer a really great experience for guests. If you need any indication of how I go out of my way to help guests, please see my extensive reviews from my past listings!
Walk to downtown Durham, DPAC, or the Durham Bulls Ballpark is one of the best things about our apartment! ! I love to walk downtown and take an uber or cab back (about $5). We have bikes you can possibly use, just ask. Easy access to the ballpark- no need to pay for parking for a Durham Bulls game just walk right over in five minutes! Same with a visit to DPAC- don't pay to park, just walk!
Public transit galore! Easy access by bus or foot to downtown Durham station with mega bus and all buses that connect to the area within reach. There are two city bus stops just a few steps outside the apartment. Amtrak is also very close. Airport can be reached by public transit 7 days a week, or an Uber will cost you about $18 (cab approximately $30). There is street parking right outside the complex for free.
Other things to note
We have a small short haired dog, but the apartment will be professionally cleaned before your arrival and she will not be there during your stay if you are booking this listing. However, if you are terribly allergic, I cannot guarantee there will be no allergens.
I am a long time host on Airbnb (please check out my reviews from many happy guests over the past years) so I have seen the good and the bad in guests. Great guests are ones that leave the place clean, don't make too much noise, and treat it even better than they would their own home. Since it's not a hotel, this is a different type of stay where I expect respect for my belongings that are here for your use! There is no smoking allowed, inside or on the balconies (did I mention there were two balconies?!). No parties, and no guests other than the ones on the reservation (please communicate with me if you would like to update who is coming before your arrival).
I am a student and a teacher in the area, ad I love hosting here on Airbnb as I have for the past few years. This is my first time switching to a hosting environment where I will be sharing the space with my guests, but I expect and awesome experience nonetheless. I love music in the area and frequent local concerts, and I'm also a vegan so I can share with a variety of perspectives on the food scene here in Durham.
I can recommend a variety of activities that will never leave you bored in Durham. This town is really expanding, and you are coming at a great time!
